Although the show’s linear ratings haven’t been enormous, the Ray Donovan TV show has been a top three performer for Showtime, in terms of both total audience size and demo numbers. Can it stay on track? Will Ray Donovan be cancelled or renewed for season six? Stay tuned.
A Showtime crime drama, Ray Donovan stars Liev Schreiber, Jon Voight, Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Steven Bauer, Katherine Moennig, Pooch Hall, Kerris Dorsey, and Devon Bagby. Susan Sarandon, Kim Raver, C. Thomas Howell, Brian White, Adina Porter, Rhys Coiro, Lili Simmons, Tara Buck, and Dominique Columbus guest star in season five.
Ray Donovan centers on L.A.’s best professional fixer (Schreiber). It’s up to Ray to make the biggest problems of the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls disappear. In the fifth season, Ray must attend a court-ordered anger management program, following a bar fight. Meanwhile, as Terry (Marsan) and Maureen’s (Buck) wedding looms, Mickey (Voight), Bunchy (Mihok), and Daryll (Hall) get ready for it. Eventually, Ray is drawn deeper into Sam Winslow’s (Sarandon) web.

I’ve been hooked on the Donovan Family since episode #1.
used to love this show found it almost unbearable to watch this season.Abby flashbacks monotonous ,daughter unbearable,Bunch just too stupid,Mickey the baddest man on the planet never gets caught with all the crimes he commits whole show has become boring and Rediculous!
Renew or my life will be miserable!
It should be renewed. It is such a good series
Believe Ray Donavan writers and actors who are responsible for disrespectful christian statements such as Jesus F—en Christ should stop. It is sacrilegious and hurtful to all Christians
Give me a break
It’s a tv show about criminals
If you don’t like the fu stuff anti anti catholic views turn the
All those boys lives destroyed by priests that’s why they are
Cursing and directing their anger this way
Not to crazy about the story line for this season.It would have been better to have kept Abby as a survivor and just allowed them to have marital problems and have Ray stray. Like father like son have a child outside of his home especially since he’s made it his life’s mission to be nothing like Mickey.

Bring the law firm back into play along with the new studio business and go from there that would have kept ratings up and the series going strong.… Read more »
thank god this is the last, season 5 sucks a** the only reason i watch is to see how the show ends this year storyline is dumb
Please, please re-new Ray Donovan !! We need season 6,7,8,9 and more…. It’s my husband and my favorite show. We beng watched all seasons in a few weeks time we were so obsessed!!! I just wish Abby wasn’t gone!! If you do more advertising for it your ratings will sore. I had never heard of it and I watch a lot of tv!! I’m telling everyone to watch!! Great writing and cast!!
They ruined show for me when they let Abby die. That episode at the sex ranch was the best this year and Abby made it happen. Abby brought the F word to a new loveable height.
WITHOUT ABBY, DUMP IT. WHY DID THEY KILL HER OFF AND CHANGE THE WHOLE DYNAMICS OF THE SHOW. IT’S A DIFFERENT SHOW NOW!
