Back in its early days, TV Land focused on airing classic TV shows. Then, they started their own scripted comedies starring classic television stars. Now, they’ve started focusing on producing “edgier” comedies. Is this a good move? Which shows will be cancelled or renewed? Stay tuned to follow the ratings.
Scripted TV Land shows listed: The Exes, Happily Divorced, Hot in Cleveland, Impastor, Jennifer Falls, The Jim Gaffigan Show, Lopez, Nobodies, Retired at 35, The Soul Man, Teachers, and Younger.
Last updated: Most recent ratings added for Younger.
There’s a lot of data that TV Land execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are a major factor. Here’s an updated listing of all of their recent/current primetime scripted shows.
A couple of notes about these charts:
These figures are updated automatically as new ratings are released (usually a day or so after the broadcasts). The averages are based on the final national numbers (live plus same day viewing). For technical reasons, I have to resort them manually so feel free to let me know if I missed something.
The demo numbers, which are typically most important to the broadcast networks, aren’t quite as vital to cable channels because their audiences are usually much smaller. Demo numbers are typically reported using the 10ths decimal place (2.4, for example). In the averages, I’m using an extra decimal for easier ranking.
What do you think? Are you surprised by any of the ratings? Which shows should be doing better? Which one do you think will be cancelled next?
