What’s This TV Show About?
A CBS crime drama from creators Frank Spotnitz and David Vainola, Ransom stars Luke Roberts, Sarah Greene, Brandon Jay McLaren, and Nazneen Contractor. The mystery thriller centers on crisis and hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont (Roberts). He and his team save lives which often seem beyond saving, in part, because Eric understands criminals better than they understand themselves. Exploiting his powers of manipulation, Eric eschews using violence, even in the most dangerous kidnappings and ransom cases. Psych-profiler Oliver Yates (McLaren), former police officer Zara Hallam (Contractor), and investigator Maxine Carlson (Greene) form the team that backs up Beaumont.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Ransom averaged a 0.26 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.45 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 39% and 29%, respectively. Find out how Ransom stacks up against the other CBS TV shows.
Will CBS cancel or renew Ransom for season three? The show has done well internationally so it could be renewed with or without CBS’ interest in a third season. On Saturday nights, Ransom draws about the same ratings as CBS’ “crimetime” reruns so I suspect they’d have to get a good deal to purchase another season. I’ll update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free Ransom cancellation or renewal alerts.
