Despite some disappointing ratings, FOX decided to stick with Scream Queens and give it a second season. Will the numbers improve this time around? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
This season of Scream Queens graduates from the college campus and moves into a hospital with a haunted past. The building’s sordid history as the springboard for the series’ overarching mystery. The cast includes Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Glen Powell, Niecy Nash, John Stamos, Taylor Lautner, and James Earl. Guest stars this season include Jerry O’Connell, Laura Bell Bundy, Colton Haynes, Cecily Strong, and Cheri Oteri.
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.

For comparisons: The first season of Scream Queens averaged a 1.09 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.79 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
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.
