The Fosters season 5 ratings; latest on CBS’ Salvation, USA’s Shooter

Fosters season 5 ratingsWant to know the latest The Fosters season 5 ratings? You’ve come to the right place, since that’s the first focus of today’s piece.

Through two episodes so far, the Freeform family drama is faring decently well, drawing a 0.3 rating for its first two shows in the 18-49 demographic and averaging around 780,000 viewers for them. These are both down versus the season 4 averages, but in perspective, it’s not so bad given that the majority of the Freeform live+same-day ratings out there are lower than this. With Pretty Little Liars and Switched at Birth off of the air, the network is in a little bit of a transitional period where they’ve got popular shows, but they aren’t necessarily huge hits in traditional ratings metrics.

Hopefully, the ratings for The Fosters will stay steady and that the show will eventually earn itself a season 6. The one thing we do know is that the show’s faring better than new drama The Bold Type, which through three episodes is generating a 0.1 rating in the demo and around 270,000 viewers. It’s been very hard to launch a new series over on that network as of late.

Salvation holds strong on CBS

We’re always concerned about shows posting big week-to-week declines since this is the one way to effectively kill a show right away. Luckily, that didn’t happen for the second episode of Salvation. The show generated in total a 0.7 rating in the demo, which is almost precisely even with what the show had from the week before. We’re still unclear if this will be enough for the network to get a second season, but if it holds firm it’s possible given that CBS does have a good streaming deal with it and there may be hope that there are some more viewers who come on board it over the course of time.

How did the Shooter season 2 premiere fare?

By and large, we’d say that this is a pretty significant victory for the Ryan Phillippe show on USA. While its numbers weren’t in another stratosphere, they were very solid and should offer up some hope for consistency the rest of the way. This episode on Tuesday generated a 0.4 rating in the demo, and then almost 1.5 million viewers. It was down slightly in the demo versus the premiere last fall (remember, the show aired last fall after being delayed), but was up in total viewers. That’s a good foundation, so we’ll just have to see how things go from here moving forward this season. There’s still a lot of time to go, but given that there aren’t many other shows out there that are similar to Shooter, we don’t imagine that it will have a huge problem retaining people.

As always, we’re going to have more daily ratings updates on some of the shows that we frequently cover here at the site. Stay tuned for more. (Photo: Freeform.)
