What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the NBC television network, The Wall TV show is hosted by Chris Hardwick. The game follows pairs of players as they pursue a cash prize of up to $12 million. When a team answers a trivia question correctly, a green ball drops from the top of the grid-like wall and bounces randomly toward the bottom of the four-stories high structure. At the bottom of the wall, the ball will land in one of many slots, each with a value of $1 to $1 million. That value is added to the team’s total winnings. If the team misses a question, a red ball descends toward a random slot. The resulting amount is then deducted from the team’s total. In this game, players need both the answers and lucky bounces, to win a big cash prize.
Season Three Ratings
Season 3A of The Wall (which aired during the 2019-20 season) averages a 0.53 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.14 million viewers. Compared to the second half of season two (which aired during the 2017-18 season), that’s down by 50% in the demo and down by 40% in viewership.
Season 3B (which aired during the 2020-21 season) averaged a 0.53 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.32 million viewers. Compared to the second half of season two, that’s down by 50% in the demo and down by 36% in viewership.

Will NBC cancel or renew The Wall for season four? The series has done pretty well for the network in the past as a utility player, filling in gaps in the schedule as needed. However, the show’s been off the air for over two years and it seems that some viewers have forgotten about it. If you look at the ratings, the audience has really dropped off. As a result, I’m thinking that The Wall will be cancelled. (Since 20 episodes have been produced, it seems possible that NBC will, once again, split the season into two parts and save some episodes for the 2020-21 season.)
