The networks are big on time travel this season. The Timeless drama series premiered on NBC in October of 2016, but the ratings have been disappointing, and it may well be cancelled. On March 5th, FOX debuted the sitcom Making History — the very same night Time After Time premiere on ABC. When will we find out which will be cancelled or renewed for a second season? It’s just a matter of time.
An hourlong drama, Time After Time stars Freddie Stroma, Josh Bowman, Génesis Rodríguez, Nicole Ari Parker, Will Chase, Jordan Sparks, and Jennifer Ferrin. The ABC series follows the young H.G. Wells (Stroma) and his journey via his incredible time machine. Wells is in hot pursuit of the brilliant and engaging surgeon, Dr. John Stevenson (Bowman), a.k.a. “Jack the Ripper.” It is in present-day New York City that he meets philanthropist Vanessa Anders. She is the current owner of Wells’ time machine and may also be his great-granddaughter. Assistant museum curator Jane Walker (Rodríguez) joins Wells on his dangerous search for the man now known as “The Key Killer.”
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 — 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.
What do you think? Have you been watching the Time After Time TV series on ABC? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
I Loved Time After Time. If I like it, I can count on it being canceled.
Loved the two movie versions. Was thrilled to see a series following the HG Wells story line! PLEEEEEEASE don’t pull this well done series. Josh Bowman is HOT
Please renew “Time after Time” so few good programs on television and now there will be one less.
I thought this was an excellent series ,can’t understand why it was cancelled
Disgraceful to cancel after 5 episodes,the very least they could do is finish the season.I thought it was an excellent series unlike most of the drivel we have to watch now
Please bring Time After Time back ,got hooked on it and now am very disappointed I cant watch it and follow the story ,very frustrated.
I really loved TIME AFTER TIME!!! I’m hooked, n not to happy if it’s cancelled!! I’m so tired of great shows coming out n then cancel em, like LONGMIRE, DALLAS, n now this TIME AFTER TIME. Please don’t cancel this show
Please renew or at very least play shows your already recorded!! Rating system needs to update with today! I sometimes don’t watch a show for a week after due to my schedule! I watch most things through Hulu, too – including this show. Why are ratings so behind? So young kids with no bedtimes get to control what’s on TV – so that’s why only crap stays on. Way to go networks!!!
