The peacock network is trying another movie-based TV show — Taken. The movies have been a big success but, how will the Taken TV show perform in the ratings? Will it be quickly cancelled? Renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
A prequel set thirty years prior to the Liam Neeson feature film trilogy, the Taken TV show stars Clive Standen as a younger, hungrier former Green Beret, Bryan Mills. After a personal tragedy upends his life, he embarks on a quest for vengeance, as he struggles to move past the trauma. The rest of the NBC cast includes Jennifer Beals, Gaius Charles, Brooklyn Sudano, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Michael Irby, James Landry Hébert, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Simu Liu, and Ali Kazami.
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.

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.
