What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, the SWAT TV show stars Shemar Moore, Alex Russell, Jay Harrington, Lina Esco, Kenny Johnson, David Lim, Patrick St. Esprit, and Amy Farrington, with Bre Blair, Obba Babatundé, Deshae Frost, Rochelle Aytes, Susan Chuang, Chris L. McKenna, and David Gautreaux in recurring roles. The crime thriller centers on Sergeant Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson (Moore), a Los Angeles native and former Marine who’s been tapped to lead a new “last stop” Special Weapons And Tactics unit (S.W.A.T.). Thanks to his background, he is uniquely qualified to lead the team in a manner that also builds a bridge to the community he holds dear. Hondo’s group includes seasoned David “Deacon” Kay (Harrington), cocky newcomer Jim Street (Russell), canine trainer Christina “Chris” Alonso (Esco), expert driver Dominique Luca (Johnson), and informant-connected Victor Tan (Lim). Responsible for the management of all Metro Division S.W.A.T. units is Commander Robert Hicks (St. Esprit), a senior LAPD official with the Special Operations Bureau.
Season Four Ratings
The fourth season of SWAT averaged a 0.42 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.16 million viewers. Compared to season three, that’s down by 26% in the demo and down by 22% in viewership. Find out how SWAT stacks up against other CBS TV shows.
Will CBS cancel or renew SWAT for season five? This show has been one of CBS’ lowest-rated scripted series. While I don’t think that it will necessarily be cancelled this time, it could end up on the chopping block if the network needed a slot on the schedule for another series. I’ll update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on SWAT cancellation or renewal news.
