This FOX TV show’s ratings have been quite low for awhile and, last season, Sleepy Hollow lost one of its core characters. How will this affect the ratings moving forward? Will the numbers improve or fall even lower? Will Sleepy Hollow be cancelled or will it be renewed for a fifth season to give the studio more episodes for a syndication package? Stay tuned.
A supernatural drama, Sleepy Hollow follows Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), a patriot who was killed 230 years ago. In season four, Crane finds himself in the nation’s capital where he must forge unlikely partnerships in his quest to find the next Witness. Crane soon discovers that there is more evil at play than he realized was possible. The FOX cast also includes Janina Gavankar, Lyndie Greenwood, Jerry MacKinnon, Rachel Melvin, Oona Yaffe, Jeremy Davies, and John Noble. Kamar de los Reyes and Robbie Kay are expected to recur.
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 third season of Sleepy Hollow averaged a 0.83 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.07 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.
