Vampire TV series, films, and novels always seem to capture the public’s imagination. To that end, FOX has introduced The Passage TV show. Will it be able to sink its fangs into the television audience and draw more Nielsen ratings than blood? Will The Passage be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A FOX drama, The Passage stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Saniyya Sidney, Vincent Piazza, Brianne Howey, Caroline Chikezie, Jamie McShane, Emmanuelle Chriqui, McKinley Belcher III, and Henry Ian Cusick. Based on the Justin Cronin book trilogy, the story centers on Project NOAH, where scientists are working on a virus that may either cure humanity of all disease, or wipe it out entirely. When Federal Agent Brad Wolgast (Gosselaar) is assigned to bring in Amy Bellafonte (Sidney) as a new test subject, he develops fatherly feelings for the child. Meanwhile, the new race of creatures locked up in Project NOAH are testing out their powers and working toward an escape.
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.
