ABC has had a hard time establishing new drama TV series. Last season, they introduced six and cancelled four of them. Will Notorious be a ratings success for the network on Thursday nights, a highly-competitive evening? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
Notorious revolves around the symbiotic relationship between a charismatic defense attorney (Daniel Sunjata) and a powerhouse TV producer (Piper Perabo) as they attempt to control the media, the justice system, and each other. Together, they make great TV and determine the nation’s headlines. The rest of the cast includes Kate Jennings Grant, Aimee Teegarden, J. August Richards, Sepideh Moafi, Ryan Guzman, and Kevin Zegers.
4/26 update: Although not officially announced, Notorious has been cancelled by ABC. Details here.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
