What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, The Rookie TV show stars Nathan Fillion, Alyssa Diaz, Richard T. Jones, Melissa O’Neil, Eric Winter, Mekia Cox, Shawn Ashmore, and Tru Valentino. Lisseth Chavez recurs. John Nolan (Fillion) is a middle-aged divorced man from Pennsylvania who owns a construction company. He decides to give up his old life to pursue a new career as a police officer in the Los Angeles Police Department. He graduates from the Police Academy, is the oldest rookie on the force, and eventually becomes a training officer. He works with Sergeant Wade Grey (Jones), Detective Angela Lopez (Diaz), training officers Nyla Harper (Cox) and Tim Bradford (Winter), fellow rookie Lucy Chen (O’Neil), and the station’s newest rookie, Aaron Thorsen (Valentino).
Season Five Ratings
The fifth season of The Rookie averages a 0.31 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.20 million viewers. Compared to season four, that’s down by 15% in the demo and up by 1% in viewership 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 Rookie stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Will ABC cancel or renew The Rookie for season six? The show’s traditional ratings aren’t so hot, but the series does do well in delayed viewing. The Rookie has also now been sold into syndication in 95% of the U.S. markets, making the series more lucrative than ever for Disney. Unless Fillion wants to call it quits, I’m confident that it will be renewed for year six. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
