In its first season on NBC, The Wall TV show did well enough in the ratings, particularly in the 18-49 year old viewer demo, to score a 20 episode renewal order. Can this game show repeat its performance, or even increase its audience, in its second season? Will The Wall be cancelled or renewed for season three on NBC? Stay tuned.
An NBC game show, hosted by Chris Hardwick, The Wall centers on 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 $1.00 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 will be deducted from the team’s total. In this game, players need both the answers, and lucky bounces, to win a big cash prize. **Status update below.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
1/30 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.
Note: Because NBC broke season two between the 2016-17 and 2017-18 broadcast seasons, the ratings are presented here in two different charts. The averages are included on the respective season charts (2016-17 and 2017-18).
For comparisons: The first season of The Wall on NBC averaged a 1.45 in the 18-49 year old viewer demographic and 5.957 million viewers.
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.
