What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, The Final Straw TV series is a larger-than-life Jenga-style competition hosted by Janelle James. Four teams of contestants compete in a battle against gravity and physics. They attempt to remove items from life-sized themed stacks which are chock full of various objects, ranging from basketballs to small kitchen appliances. The host is sometimes joined onstage by the mischievous Tipsy the Panda who is hell-bent on the destruction of the stacks. If the tower falls, that team is eliminated. The last team standing will compete against The Mega Stack for a chance to win the grand prize of $250,000.
Season One Ratings
The first season of The Final Straw averaged a 0.30 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.09 million viewers in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how The Final Straw stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Will ABC cancel or renew The Final Straw for season two? Though the network cancelled several game shows earlier this year, ABC seems to be committed to keeping a number of competition series on the air. The ratings were low, but I think there’s still a good chance The Final Straw will see a second year. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
