FBI: Most Wanted ratings continue strong after third week

Three episodes in and FBI: Most Wanted continues strong. There’s no need to worry about the renewal of this series if things keep up.

The live ratings for FBI: Most Wanted Season 1, Episode 3 are in and they’re looking good. There shouldn’t be a need to worry about the future of this series.

The live ratings (so those that don’t take into account any DVR viewings) come in at 6.547 million people watching and a 0.7 demo rating. Those figures don’t mean too much alone, so let’s break them down to see why they’re good.

After slipping in the audience figures during Episode 2, there was a slight tick up for Episode 3. Arguably, it just means that the audience is already showing signs of stabilizing, which is exactly what CBS will want.

The demo did slip by 7%, but that’s nothing to be concerned about right now. The demo remains about on par with the timeslot’s predecessor, NCIS: New Orleans. In fact, the demo is up from earlier episodes, with the last two episodes of Season 6 that aired ticked up to see the team get justice for one of their own.

Overall, FBI: Most Wanted sits as the third most-watched drama on CBS. Want to take a guess which two dramas are ahead of it? If you guessed NCIS and FBI, you’ll be right. Tuesdays are strong. When considering the comedy, the show sits in the top five, which is nothing to grumble about.

Now it’s all about stabilizing. If the metrics can stay where they are right now, things are looking great. CBS doesn’t just consider live ratings, but they are a good indicator as to whether we’ll get new seasons or not. I predict FBI: Most Wanted Season 2 is going to happen.
