The networks love to create new TV shows that are based on movies from the past. Some do well in the ratings while others are quickly cancelled. How will CBS make out with their Training Day TV series? Will it be a hit or a flop? Will Training Day be cancelled or survive to be renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
Picking up some 15 years after the movie, the Training Day TV show follows Detective Frank Rourke (Bill Paxon). He’s the maverick head of a special unit that hunts the city’s most dangerous criminals. When the LAPD brass notices Rourke’s penchant for operating in a gray area to fight crime, they assign heroic Kyle Craig (Justin Cornwell) to pose as Frank’s trainee to spy on him and report on his off-book methods. The rest of the CBS cast includes Katrina Law, Drew Van Acker, Lex Scott Davis, Julie Benz, Christina Vidal, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
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.
