ABC hasn’t debuted a lot of new dramas during the 2018-19 television season. A Million Little Things did well enough to earn a second season renewal, but while Whiskey Cavalier is still pretty new, it hasn’t taken the Nielsen ratings by storm. Now the Alphabet Network has introduced The Fix TV show, from OJ Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark, along with Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain — the longtime writing duo who got their TV start on Joss Whedon’s Angel. Does it have the right mix to bring in viewers and score an invite to return? Will The Fix be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. **Status update below.
An ABC legal drama anthology, The Fix stars Robin Tunney, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Scott Cohen, Adam Rayner, Merrin Dungey, Breckin Meyer, Marc Blucas, Mouzam Makkar, and Alex Saxon. The first season centers on former prosecutor, Maya Travis (Tunney) who, in 2010, was unable to convict movie star Sevvy Johnson (Akinnuoye-Agbaje) in the double-homicide of his wife and her friend. After the trial, Maya fled LA, but now that Sevvy’s girlfriend has been killed, she’s lured back into action, for another shot at justice.
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. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically 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.
