After scheduling sitcoms on Mondays at 9pm for decades, CBS execs decided to try tech drama Scorpion in that timeslot last season. Despite lots of negative reviews, it became the network’s third-highest rated show in the demo. Will it continue to do well? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? 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 Robert Patrick, Katharine McPhee, Jadyn Wong, Ari Stidham and Eddie Kaye Thomas.
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.
3/25 update: CBS has renewed this series and 10 others for the 2016-17 season. Details here.
4/26 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.
Note: If you’re not seeing the updated charts, please try reloading the page. You can also see them here.
For comparisons: The first season of Scorpion averaged a 2.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.96 million total viewers.
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 third season?

Missing Scorpion like crazy, always look forward to another new episode 🙂 Watched every episode and hope they continue for a long time. Think it is a great show for everyone and school kids should be able to watch it at a good time of day. Very inspiring!
REALLY disappointed with the new season. The introduction of the petty & annoying bickering in TWO relationship farces TOTALLY detracts from the real intrigue and interest that made this program a success. YET ANOTHER series that the writers ‘just had to tinker with’. You had a hit. Just leave things alone. I’m not even sure if a quick turnaround of character bastardization is possible as Toby’s ‘behavior’, for one, is a complete embarrassment and a circus sideshow. It’s like Sheldon Cooper of Big Bang Theory on steroids, but at least their writers seem to know when & where to draw… Read more »
**** Scott Porter why he screw with paige denin **** this serial. Get out that busterd from serial (Scott Porter). Love u walter. **** script writer and director
I think Walters and Paige’s affair should be established to move on. Cuz lots of people are waiting for that! That could be a nice combination. This is dragged 2 seasons now.people might loose interest on this..
Cuz there are many more dramas.c
I like this show. But u guys better have a prover vision
I agree. Move on from the Paige intrigue. She’s the most boring character on the show. Enough already.
It stinks. Tonight’s episode- have you seen “Twister” ? A complete copy! And get rid of the waitress! She has no business being with them! CANCEL IT please!
Great show but can we just take a second to reflect on the terrible change in intro for each episode in season 2? Season 1 had a great intro, but this season it sounded like he was a machine or something reading it off of a piece of paper that he was seeing for the first time. It was terrible!!!
OH my god I love this show. Please don’t cancel it. My kids and I watch it as a family. And I can honestly say that doesn’t happen with a lot of tv shows. Huge fan. I tell everyone about it.
Love, love this show, please do not cancel!
I really think it was awesome. Also would watch more faithfully
