So far, The CW has struck out with their new summer series. Seed, Backpackers, and Famous in 12 have already been cancelled and didn’t even get to finish their seasons. Will Penn & Teller: Fool Us bring the small network some “ratings magic” or will this show disappear as well?
On Penn & Teller: Fool Us, aspiring magicians perform tricks and illusions for the famous duo in an attempt to fool and impress them. If they succeed, the magicians get a chance to perform in Las Vegas with Penn and Teller. British television personality Jonathan Ross is the host.
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. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

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.
