Last summer, NBC aired the Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls competition series. It wasn’t a ratings success and was cancelled. Now, the peacock network is trying a new Grylls series called Running Wild with Bear Grylls. Will this one be a hit and be renewed for a second season or, will it be dropped as well. Stay tuned!
On Running Wild with Bear Grylls, adventurer Bear Grylls takes celebrities to remote locations across the world on journeys that push the physical and mental stamina. The first celebrities are actor Zac Efron, actor-director Ben Stiller, actor Channing Tatum, NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, actor Tom Arnold, and Today anchor Tamron Hall.
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.
Final season averages: 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.05 million total viewers.

I loved this show !!!!! Can’t wait to see it again. It is much deeper than a wilderness challenge. Bear is a terrific person. He makes them feel safe , shows them that they are capable of far more than they ever imagined. He is interested in each ones personal story and the wilderness is a great place for inner transformation to take place. What a lovely human being. Please bring the show back.
I loved watching this celebrities roughing it even a little in the wild. I would definitely continue to watch this show and eagerly await season 2.
I would watch a second Season with as much anticipation as I did for Season 1. I love the physical determination shown by Bear and the novice celebrities that he takes on his adventures. I also like the intimate moments Bear has and his ability to open them up during these incredible obstacles. Bring back “Running Wild with Bear Grylls”. It’s an inspiration to those of us that enjoy physical exercise!
Why not take celebrities to remote locations, leave them there with only the clothes on their back and see if they can find their way back on their own. If not, no loss. There are plenty of celebrities we can do without and would never miss.
