Salvation season 2 episode 11 preview: ‘Celebration Day’ + ratings talk

The first thing we want to point out in regards to Salvation season 2 episode 11 is its title: “Celebration Day.” That’s the sort of thing that will invoke a lot of emotions, potentially of a battle well-fought and characters actually getting a chance for some sort of reprieve.

Yet, are they actually going to get it? That’s something worth wondering right now, and wonder is all we have given that CBS has not exactly released a lot of information at the moment about what’s coming. We foresee this being the sort of episode where some of our heroes start to think that they’ve reached the end of the road and achieved some victory … only for something else to arrive at the last minute and ruin everything. It’s something that is so effective on these sort of shows just because there’s always a desire for a big, dramatic twist.

So rather than spend too much time speculating on an episode when there isn’t all that much to speculate on, let’s instead pose the following question: How are the ratings? Are we getting closer to a renewal in the near future? Well, we’re not altogether hopeful. Season 2 is averaging just a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is down dramatically from the ratings from season 1. When you consider that the ratings for that season basically put the show on the bubble, it’s hard to really feel anything other than a sense of dread right now. The biggest thing to hope for is that there’s a way the numbers tick up a little bit over the next few weeks and that the network is happy with the rise.

For the time being, though, our advice is simply to expect the worst and hope for the best.
