The humble television game show has experienced something of a renaissance the last few years, largely due to the Alphabet Network’s reboot of several classic formats. Although FOX programs fewer hours per week, it is also keeping a toe in these unscripted waters. Enter the Spin the Wheel TV show. Can the first season prove itself to be a Nielsen ratings race winner? Will Spin the Wheel be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A FOX high-stakes game hosted by Dax Shepard, Spin the Wheel gives contestants the opportunity to win over $20 million per episode. To play, contestants answer pop culture trivia questions. With each correct answer, the players get to add another prize wedge to the wheel, but each incorrect answer brings with it a wedge that puts their winnings in jeopardy. As they progress, they must choose to either walk away with the prize money in their bank, or risk the entire thing to spin the wheel another time.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
9/6 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.

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 Spin the Wheel TV show? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a second season on FOX?
*Status update: FOX has apparently canceled the Spin the Wheel TV show so there won’t be a second season.
Please bring back Spin The Wheel.! It was a good show with a great host. I’m tired of seeing the old shows rebooted.
Please bring back spin the wheel
Love it…. Cannot wait each week for the show.
That was a Great game show Dak Shepherd was the perfect fit. It took us awhile to see it, then never missed or recorded week.
The fact that the contestants are just everyday people, that have done something extraordinary makes it better then a game show.
I am not one to watch game shows, but this one is special and Dak Shepherd makes it even better.
Let’s keep this one going. Maybe do some more advertising. Just a thought.
Must see TV for my husband and me on Thursday evening
We love the show, we love Dax the show has heart
Please bring it back!
Love, love, love this show!!! Idiots for not renewing!
Like it, but havent been able to see the ending on the last few shows!! The show before it runs into it and we miss the last 5 to10 minutes. Very frustrating!
No payouts. Very frustrating to watch players go home empty-handed.
Totally agree! It’s the same pattern every week…they build up money in the early rounds & then get the “back to zero” in the final round. It’s so rigged. The contestants should be able to spin/control the wheel not just tap it. I don’t know why I continue to watch.
This exactly!!Perfectly said!!
Yes they do take money home idk what your watching
It interesting I say renew. Episode 8 is on on now. I think she get over 1 million if the sister doesn’t mass it up
This show cannot possibly last simply because it uses a digital “wheel.” The whole 20 minutes I watched all I was thinking is this has to be staged/scripted/rigged and I was completely taken out. Dax was decent but just seeing that dumb digital bouncing ball knowing that it was probably pre-determined just got annoying quick.
I agree.To me it seems there are actors on stage and a bunch of extras for the audience.Curious to see if the same audience shows up on other episodes.
Pay everybody at scale and don”t have to worry about prize payments.
Too much drama to be real.
The main problem with this show is you get bored before it starts with the kid with the beard self promoting, shorten that opening …
