Earlier this year, HBO launched their music industry drama, Vinyl. It was a disappointment and was ultimately cancelled. How will the Roadies comedy series perform for fellow premium channel Showtime? Will it be cancelled as well? Stay tuned.
Created by Cameron Crowe, the Roadies comedy TV series gives an insider’s look at the reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives of a committed group of the backstage workers. They’re touring the United States with a successful arena-level rock band. The cast includes Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino, Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Peter Cambor, Colson Baker, and Ron White.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
9/16 update: Roadies won’t be back for a second season. It’s been cancelled. Details here.

What do you think? Do you like the Roadies TV show? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
Roadies should be renewed different storyline great writing I mean as it
Great show with unlimited potential. Im heartbroken it was cancelled. Who watches tv live anymore? Bring this show back
Great show with unlimited potential. Im heartbroken it was cancelled.
I missed the announcement i had been waiting for it come back on. it was great! God, show s dont even catch on until a season or two or even three, some of the best shows in history were given more than 1 season to catch on. Its a shame, too many shows dont get the a chance. Missed opportunity!!!
We loved Roadies…you’re missing the mark cancelling this one…extremely bad cal folks.
The show has been CANCELLED. A show with a 0.09 rating does not deserve to be renewed. More of you should have watched it live. Now it’s CANCELLED!
A 0.09? Are you kidding? That’s disgusting. Good Call Showtime. Try watching things LIVE folks, or don’t complain when a show with disastrous ratings gets CANCELLED!
Don’t Cameron and JJ deserve more? Ignore Rotten Tomatoes and let Roadies live another day! Listen to the people Showtime.
What people? With a 0.09, it is obvious that NOBODY WAS WATCHING! You want them to listen to the VERY FEW people that were?
I don’t know many people watching tv live. They need to figure a way to include dvr recordings in the ratings. I was approached by Neilson but was disqualified because of my TiVo. Most are also too complacent. The oh well attitude is easier. I liked this little well crafted show and am sad to see it go. I’m sure I’ll forget about it in a week
Please bring back Roadies…..more music….love the Song of the Day
If you want to be sure you voice is heard write David Nevins, the head of Showtime. I did and got a reply the next day. His email is:
I hope it will help.
I emailed him as well. Here’s hoping our voice matters!
Just emailed as well, will be seriously bummed if it’s cancelled. Have enjoyed not only the show but the music that it brings to light. Very inspirational.
Let’s just keep spitting out Bachelors and housewives. Roadies is such a sweet show that just needs word of mouth to gain legs. You’d think SHO would give it more than 5 minutes. Here’s hoping~
Cancelled. We lose
This is my favorite show right now – characters that you care about, GREAT music and guest stars, compelling plot – PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!
My favorite show by far. One of the only soirees I watch.
RENEW RENEW RENEW
Please please renew this show…good writing, great characters, excellent acting. Wonderful.
