Even in its 14th season, Shondaland’s Grey’s Anatomy is routinely the top Nielsen ratings performer out of ABC’s scripted, primetime programming. Still, once it does end (one day), whither the Alphabet Network? Enter the new Station 19 TV show. Unlike Private Pratice, a long-cancelled Grey’s spin-off, Station 19 is set at a Seattle firehouse, where all the firefighters are EMTs. Can they stabilize the network ahead of the eventual end of the parent-series? Will Station 19 be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
From creator Stacy McKee, Station 19 is an action drama. The ABC TV series stars Jaina Lee Ortiz, Jason George, Grey Damon, Barrett Doss, Alberto Frezza, Jay Hayden, Okieriete Onaodowan, Danielle Savre, and Miguel Sandoval. The story centers on the crew of Seattle’s Station 19 — the best of the best. Thanks to close quarters, and the nature of the job, over the course of their 24-hour shifts, the team at Station 19 have grown into a family. The roots of their relationships run deep, and not all of the action they see takes place on the streets.
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.

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.
