What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, Scorpion stars Elyes Gabel, Katharine McPhee, Eddie Kay Thomas, Jadyn Wong, Ari Stidham, Robert Patrick, Riley B. Smith, Andy Buckley, Jamie McShane, Joshua Leonard, Dan Dratch, and Scott Porter. It is inspired by a real-life computer expert.
The series centers on Walter O’Brien (Gabel) and his team of brilliant misfits. They are the country’s last line of defense against lurking high-tech threats. As Team Scorpion, these members of Homeland Security’s think tank solve the nation’s crises, even as they help one other on their quest to fit in. At the start of season four, they find themselves working with their nemesis, Mark Collins (Leonard), to prevent the extinction of the human race. Meanwhile, Walter and Paige (McPhee) feel awkward as they try to navigate their new relationship.
Season Four Ratings
The fourth season of Scorpion averaged a 0.81 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.26 million viewers. Compared to season three, that’s down by 32% and down by 27%, respectively. Find out how Scorpion stacks up against the other CBS TV shows.
Scorpion premiered with much lower ratings than last year and they’ve dropped pretty low since then. Not a good sign. I’m thinking that it will either be cancelled or renewed for a final year. I will update this page as the picture grows more clear. Subscribe for free updates on any Scorpion cancellation or renewal news.
