CBS continues to look for new hit sitcoms. Last year’s The Crazy Ones, Bad Teacher, We Are Men, and Friends With Better Lives were all cancelled while Mom and The Millers survived. How will The McCarthys stack up in the ratings? Will it be cancelled too or renewed for a second season? We’ll have to wait and see.
The McCarthys revolves around sports-crazed family from Boston. Athletically-challenged and gay son Ronny (Tyler Ritter) plans to finally move away to start his own life. Those plans are thrown into turmoil when his basketball coach dad (Jack McGee) offers him a job as assistant coach — much to the dismay of Ronny’s siblings. The sitcom also stars Laurie Metcalf, Jimmy Dunn, Joey McIntyre, and Kelen Coleman.
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.
5/8 update: CBS has cancelled The McCarthys, leaving four episodes unaired.
Final season averages: 1.18 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.46 million total viewers.
Note: If you’re not seeing the updated chart, please try reloading the page. You can also see them here.
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.
What do you think? Do you like The McCarthys TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or be renewed for a second season?
Please bring this show back. I was loving it! I was telling people about how funny it was and then poof! Gone 🙁 I think some shows take longer for people to get to know them because of whatever else happens to be on across from it but you have a real gem there and i , for one, would love to see more. The mother on that show is an amazing actress. She plays that part so well. She’s so funny and weird. I really enjoy watching that whole collection of characters interact. I just hope you re-concider airing… Read more »
Please bring back The McCarthy’s! What a great show? Touches on the intricate and difficult relationships with adult kids and sibling relationships, all with funny sarcastic humor! It was original, funny, and touching at times. Please give it another chance! It would be great to air the 4 episodes that weren’t shown. maybe after the show Mom, another great original show. Please give it a consistent schedule. It will succeed, I’m sure if it!
I can’t believe you cancelled The McCarthys. It was a funny show with a great cast. Maybe you should give a brand new show a chance. Whoever made this decision doesn’t have a clue what people want to watch. We are sick to death of reality shows. Such crap. You don’t seem to know a good show when you see one!
Please bring the show back that was one of the best shows on TV what are you people crazy we’re so tired of all that The Bachelor The Bachelorette survivor and bring back funny shows things that we can laugh at
Another great show cancelled . i think a few of the contracts for folks making this decision should be cancelled! By any chance are they the same geniuses that cancelled Witches of East End?
Bring The McCarthysback!!!
I’m so sad. Mccarthy’s my favorite
BRING BACK THE McCarthy’s!!!!!! Only show I look forward to!!!!
Love The McCarthys. What can be done?! How can we bring it back?
The McCarthys canceled?! This just can’t be. It’s a clever, witty show, that delivers lots of laughs. So disappointed that it’s been canceled. Love the quirky characters and how they make every day situations a half hour of hilarity! Come on people- start a campaign!!
Love the McCarthys!! Please bring it back. Funniest new show since Mom!!
I absolutely love this show. Every character has this special and unique place. Marjorie, Ronny, Gerard, Sean, Jackie, and Arthur have me rolling through the whole episodes. Very few TV series are consistently hilarious. Oh Please Oh Please don’t get rid of the show. This show is inspiring to our times of acceptance.
Please bring it back. It’s soooo good.
CBS is crazy, this is their best show!!! Please renew for another year.
