The latest SEAL Team ratings are in (courtesy of CBS), and after looking at them, it’s only fair to start feeling at least a little more hopeful that the show could have a future season 3 (something that we really want to see happen). Mind you, that we’re not at the point right now where we are willing to actually raise the season 3 flag and commence with the celebrations. There’s still a little bit of time left and during this time the network could opt to go in all sorts of directions when it comes to the future of this show. We just want to see these number at least stay steady if not rise a bit.
Let’s start by looking at where the numbers actually are as of right now. Last night’s episode generated a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and around 4.65 million viewers, which mark the best overall performance for the show since its first airing in the 10:00 p.m. timeslot in March (not an easy time slot for any show). Nothing to sneeze at there, right? It’s important here to acknowledge that having a good lead-in for the show does clearly matter — ever since Million Dollar Mile was replaced with The Amazing Race, the ratings for SEAL Team have gone up by enough that it surpasses any potential margin for error.

So, what do these numbers mean? Is it enough of a reason to start getting a little hope in your heart? We would argue that having better ratings now is a step in the right direction … but also not enough of a step to get us truly excited. What does get us excited is the quality of the storytelling mixed with the ratings. What CBS has at the moment is a real unicorn, a show that is touching on important subjects and doing it with a perfect mixture of both heart and power. They’ve created something here that is striking, action-packed, and really should be getting a much larger audience than it is. The #1 thing that you have to hope for in the final two episodes is more positive growth, and for CBS to realize that there’s still a larger ceiling for this show if they can find a way to tap into it.
Our suggestion? Why not try moving the show behind another scripted show? For the better part of its run, SEAL Team has been placed behind reality TV. We love Survivor, but we’re not going to sit here and pretend like something is a great lead-in when very clearly, it’s not a match for a show like this.
