Will ABC find a hit in the first season of Kyra Sedgwick’s new Ten Days in the Valley TV show? The 2016-17 television season was not a good one for scripted dramas on the Alphabet Network. Last year, 14 new and returning drama series premiered during the regular season. By its end, seven of them had been cancelled (or had ended, when we include When We Rise). Will Ten Days in the Valley be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
An ABC mystery drama, Ten Days in the Valley centers on Jane Sadler (Sedgwick), a mother and the producer of a new, hot television series. The large cast also includes Kick Gurry, Erika Christensen, Josh Randall, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Felix Solis, Francois Battiste, Abigail Pniowsky, Ali Liebert, Marisol Ramirez, Emily Kinney, Currie Graham, Beth Triffon, Ella Thomas, Ali Stroker, Nelson Lee, Mark L. Young, Jeff Branson, and Gage Golightly.
Between her bitter separation from her husband, Pete (Gurry), her demanding career, and parenting as a newly single mom, Jane was already stretched to the breaking point. Now, their daughter, Lake (Pniowsky), has disappeared in the middle of the night. From family and friends to co-workers — no one in Jane’s life is above suspicion. Since everyone — including Jane — is keeping secrets, trust is at an all-time premium.
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.

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.
