The big summertime ratings draw on CBS is Big Brother, but they can’t air it every night. While they do run a couple of summer scripted series, this year the Tiffany Network has also introduced the Whistleblower TV show as part of its true crime programming. Does it have what it takes to bring people in from the patio and onto the couch? Will Whistleblower be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A CBS docu-series, Whistleblower is hosted by attorney Alex Ferrer, a former judge and police officer. The true crime show delves into “David vs. Goliath,” stories of everyday people who risk it all to call out crimes and other dangerous behavior by greedy corporations.
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.

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.
