CBS had been filling the Mondays at 9pm timeslot with sitcoms for years and years. Now, they’re trying a new drama — Scorpion. Will this change be a ratings success? Will the show be renewed for a second season? Will it be cancelled? Stay tuned.
Based on real-life events, Scorpion revolves around computer expert Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel) and his team of brilliant misfits. They’re this country’s last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats. The series also stars Katharine McPhee, Robert Patrick, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Jadyn Wong, and Ari Stidham.
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.
1/12 update: Scorpion and two other shows have been renewed for a second season by CBS.
Final season averages: 2.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.96 million total viewers.

Due to a Nielsen glitch, some of the early ratings of the 2014-15 season were revised a few weeks later.
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you like the Scorpion TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
Scorpion is fake and dumb pls cancel ASAP!
I don’t watch TV often but usually try to catch my three favorite shows whenever possible, The Big Bang Theory, Scorpion and Late Night with Stephen Colbert. Hope they bring Scorpion back soon, missing it on Monday nights! Miss Craig Ferguson, wish he hadn’t left.
I really enjoyed the series. The characters and relationships are very easy to like and want to follow. I do have problems with the reality/facts of the writing. Things like electrical torture with a 12 volt battery and pulling a half inch chain for a long distance with one arm out the window of an SUV, for example, are so far from reality. I would like a show about intelligent people to be more intelligent and real-like.
I love this show, it’s one of the only shows that I can stand, I love the plots and would be devastated if it were cancelled
think it is great. fresh and love the interaction and the lack of cussing and nudeity
I love this show. Please DO NOT cancel it. We keep losing shows that have real friendship and unity displayed While the psycho killer shows keep multiplying.
11 million viewers and you want to cancel? What do you need to keep a decent show on tv?
This is a good show don’t cancel it
Great show, one of the best!
My husband and I love this show.. Can’t wait to see the next episode. Have good plots and very good actors. Please DO NOT cancel this show!!
