Let’s start with the news that has us the most concerned in SEAL Team, which dropped last night to one of its lowest ratings yet in a 0.6 in the 18-49 demographic — otherwise known as the sort of rating that has us a little more concerned for its future. We’ve cautioned for a while that the numbers would probably go down in its new timeslot, especially since a) a lot of viewers go to bed early and b) it’s still got solid competition. A show like Chicago PD airing against it doesn’t help, and neither does airing after a new series like Million Dollar Mile, which premiered to a 1.0 rating and is likely to drop in the weeks that follow.
Is there still hope for SEAL Team beyond one low-rated outing? We think so, and that’s something that we discuss more in the video below! Be sure to check that out, and on the other side of doing so subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube so you don’t miss any more insight! The biggest thing we emphasize in there is that there’s going to be making sure you check out this show live or through some other sort of ad-supporting medium after the fact. While everyone may agree that watching TV live is far from ideal in this era where there are approximately a billion other things out there to do, it’s worth it if you love a show enough and want to keep it going.
In more unfortunate ratings news, Whiskey Cavalier continued its slide last night to a 0.5 rating in the demo. It’s becoming more and more apparent at this point that this timeslot is one of the ones that ABC can’t fix no matter how hard it tries. Designated Survivor was canceled after airing there (it was later saved by Netflix) and they moved A Million Little Things elsewhere to ensure that it has a chance to real success. (It’s found it.) This timeslot is just proving to be murder for a number of different shows — in part because Chicago PD continues to dominate it.
A good start for Jane the Virgin
The premiere episode on The CW last night drew a 0.3 rating and close to 800,000 total viewers — a big increase from the season 4 average (note: it aired on Fridays last season) and marks the show’s best overall rating since February 2018. This is incredible news for a show that’s going to be dropping the curtain a little bit later this spring — of course, the irony is that because of the final season, the ratings don’t actually matter.
