We’re a celebrity-obsessed culture to be sure, but will ABC viewers watch a TV show that rehashes popular People magazine cover stories? Will the new People Icons TV show on ABC be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
ABC News and People magazine have teamed up to produce the People Icons TV show. The weekly, hourlong series is hosted by Good Morning America co-anchor Lara Spencer, with contributions from People editor-in-chief Jess Cagel. Subjects in the first season include Gloria Estefan and Emilio Estefan, Beyoncé Knowles and Jay Z, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Whitney Houston, Patrick Swayze, Robin Williams, Prince, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Dwayne Johnson.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
3/29 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.

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.
