As of the series premiere of the Whiskey Cavalier TV show, all of the ABC television network’s returning programming is down in the Nielsen ratings, over last year, and none of its freshman offerings are an unqualified hit (save The Conners which is really the Roseanne revival’s second season). Can this new action-action adventure series improve the fortunes of the Alphabet Network? Will Whiskey Cavalier be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An ABC spy drama, with a screwball comedy bent, Whiskey Cavalier stars Scott Foley, Lauren Cohan, Ana Ortiz, Tyler James Williams, Vir Das, and Josh Hopkins. The series centers on FBI Agent Will Chase (Foley), codename: “Whiskey Cavalier” and CIA operative Frankie Trowbridge (Cohan), codename: “Fiery Tribune.” Although they start off as rivals, they’re soon assigned to a joint-agency task force to root out corruption and crime and save the world.
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.
