The TruTV network has renewed comedy series 'Tacoma FD' for a third season. The firefighter sitcom originally debuted on March 28, 2019 and centers on the Tacoma Fire Department's first-responders. Since they inhabit one of America's rainiest cities, the members of the department have to tackle more trivial matters to keep themselves busy. Steve Lemme, Marcus Henderson, Kevin Heffernan, Gabriel Hogan, Hassie Harrison, and Eugene Cordero make up the main cast of the program. The first season consisted of ten episodes and ran from March to May in 2019. The second season, which is currently airing, began in March 2020 and will conclude in September. Currently, the season two ratings for 'Tacoma FD' remain on par with the first season. Season one averaged a 0.19 A18-49 rating while season two is maintaining a slightly lower 0.16 rating. Below are the full ratings for the second season.

Siren Canceled by Freeform After Three Seasons

One of the top-ratings shows on Freeform has officially been sunk. Freeform has axed mermaid drama Siren after three seasons today, despite a 0.11 average that puts it ahead but one of all of their other shows in season averages. Siren premiered on Freeform in March 2018 and ran for 36 episodes over its three seasons. This move comes after renewals of two lower-rated freshman series, Motherland: Fort Salem and Everything's Gonna Be Okay and the cancellation of Party of Five. Siren dropped over 25% from season two to season three and wrapped up its run for good on May 28. It starred Eline Powell as the titular siren, along with Alex Roe, Fola Evans-Akingbola and Rena Owen. You can see the full ratings for the third and final season below.

Tuesday TV Ratings 8/4/20: John Lewis Special Draws Little Interest, AGT Down for Anniversary Special (UPDATED)


Preliminary Analysis: Even if its dominance was much less pronounced, NBC once more topped Tuesday night with its duo of reality-competition programs. The 15th anniversary special of 'America's Got Talent' (0.8) was the night's highest-rated broadcast while 'World of Dance' (0.7) held up swimmingly at 10, remaining steady with last week even as its lead-in slipped by two-tenths. 

ABC had a particularly rotten night in comparison as repeats of 'Modern Family' (0.3/0.3), 'Black-ish' (0.3), and 'Mixed-ish' (0.3) were significantly below last week's pair of 20/20 specials (0.5/0.6). That negative momentum pushed 'What Would You Do?' (0.3) two-tenths below its last original and back down to its series low. 

CBS's John Lewis special (0.3) stirred little interest in the 10pm slot but still matched ABC's occupant. But repeats of 'NCIS' (0.5) and 'FBI' (0.4) before it topped the alphabet network's sitcom offerings. Fox went even lower with meager 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.3) and 'Prodigal Son' (0.2) encores. And the CW held even with 'Stargirl' (0.2) and 'Tell Me a Story' (0.1).

Finals Update: 'What Would You Do?' (0.4, +0.1) adjusted up. This puts it just a tenth below last week instead of two tenths.

Monday TV Ratings 8/3/20: Bachelor Greatest Seasons and The Titan Games Hold Steady, Penn & Teller Fool Us Rises (UPDATED)

It was another low-rated summer night, with few originals to be found and few people watching broadcast TV.

The rare bright spot continued to be NBC's The Titan Games. Though far from a megahit, Dwayne Johnson's show remained head-and-shoulders above the other networks with a 0.7, steady with last week. After airing repeats of The Wall and Dateline from 9-11 for weeks, NBCsubbed in repeats of American Ninja Warrior. At 0.5, it performed about the same as those shows and helped NBC easily retain the #1 position for Monday nights.

ABC returned to "original" programming with their Bachelor clip show The Bachelor - The Greatest Seasons Ever! returning from a week off with little interest. At 0.3, the show helped ABC rank last for the night among the big four.

The CW also had one original program, with a Penn & Teller: Fool Us original rising from last week's special to a 0.2. It was preceded by 0.2s for Whose Line? Repeats.

Fox had 9-1-1-Verse repeats at 0.4/0.3, with the parent show rising from last week.

CBS had a steady repeat The Neighborhood, followed by a down Bobishola repeat and an even All Rise repeat. Their 10 PM repeat rose from last week.

Finals Update: All shows held their preliminary ratings.

MSNBC Shifts Daytime Lineup, Expanding Deadline: White House to Two Hours Among Other Moves

MSNBC's daytime lineup will see a shakeup starting August 19, the left-leaning cable news network announced today. The most prominent change among these is the expansion of Deadline: White House, hosted by former The View co-host Nicolle Wallace, to two hours. Deadline: WH will continue to start at 4 PM, but will now run until 6 PM. Wallace's show has been a strong ratings performer for MSNBC, frequently drawing ratings just south of 2 million viewers. Vacating the 5 PM slot is the Chuck Todd-hosted MTP Daily, which will now air at 1 PM. A new show hosted by Morning Joe First Look host Ayman Mohyeldin will also air in the 3 PM hour. These changes come amid an overhaul at MSNBC that included the exit of longtime anchor Chris Matthews and his later replacement by Joy Reid. The new afternoon lineup on MSNBC is as follows:

Sunday TV Ratings 8/2/20: NBA Gives ABC an Easy Win, Fridge Wars and Taskmaster Launch Low (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: Sunday night ratings livened up a bit as ABC brought back the NBA, broadcasting the 'Bucks v. Rockets' game (0.8). It easily surpassed what the game show lineup managed for their last originals and topped all other offerings. The alphabet network had a sturdy 'AFV' repeat (0.6) and an 'NBA Countdown' special (0.5) before the game.

CBS's '60 Minutes' (0.6) enjoyed a two-tenth rise after last week's middling outing but a repeat of 'Tough As Nails' that followed (0.3) shed half of that audience. Repeats of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.3) and 'NCIS: New Orleans' (0.3) were able to match 'Nails'. NBC had a steady 'Cannonball' (0.3) and repeats of 'Titan Games' and 'AGT' (0.3/0.3).

Fox had the exact same ratings as last week for their sitcom repeats. As usual, 'Duncanville' (0.1) stuck out like a sore thumb while 'Simpsons', 'Bob's', and 'Family Guy' (0.3/0.3/0.3) posted halfway decent results. 'Bless The Harts' (0.2) and 'Last Man Standing' (0.2) were below the longtime veterans. And the CW housed the series premieres of 'Fridge Wars' (0.1) and 'Taskmaster' (0.1) but couldn't get ratings any stronger than what repeats would usually do.

Finals Update: NBA: Bucks v. Rockets (+0.1) and Cannonball (+0.1) adjusted up. NBA Countdown (-0.1) and the repeat of America's Funniest Home Videos (-0.1) adjusted down.

Saturday TV Ratings 8/1/20: NHL Return Draws Decent Interest, MLB Stays on Top (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: There wasn't any renewed interest for Saturday night programming on the first day of August but at least the numbers weren't any further below the dismal ones that populate the other six days of the week. Fox's 'MLB' game (0.5) took the lead but was down two-tenths from last week's broadcast of the Yankees v. National game (0.7). NBC countered Fox's baseball with hockey (0.4) but was only a tenth above what the network managed last week with repeats of 'Dateline' and 'SNL'. ABC had a nice little rebound as 'AFV' and 'Shark Tank' repeats (0.3/0.3) comfortably outperformed the 0.1 that 'NBA Countdown' garnered last week. And the 10pm 'Good Doctor' encore (0.2) was up a tenth from a week ago. CBS was on par with the alphabet network, offering up encore presentations of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.2) and '48 Hours' (0.3/0.3).

Finals Update: All shows held their preliminary ratings.

The Bullpen Season 3 Episode 5: We’re Number One!


ROBERT, MANNY, FELIX, DEVIN, and ACE are all sitting on the bullpen bench, which is set to 64 degrees Fahrenheit and lit up yellow. The message setting is on medium.

ACE
This really is an amazing bench.

ROBERT
Right? Just remember, we have to shut the color off by the time the game starts.

HARRY, standing off to the side, interjects.

HARRY
The game already started.

ROBERT
That’s impossible, it doesn’t start until seven.

HARRY
Yeah, thirty minutes ago.

ROBERT
Crap. Anyone remember how to shut off the color setting?

MANNY
Shouldn’t you know? You’ve been here the longest.

ROBERT
I’m not usually the one to do that.

ACE
I think you just flick this switch. It says color on it in all caps.

ROBERT
Yep, sounds like that would be it.

ACE
Also, there’s something written in permanent marker. Says ‘Lonzo was here.’

MANNY
I’m willing to bet that says Lorenzo, and I wasn’t even here when he was a pitcher.

FELIX
He was hardly ever a pitcher.

MANNY
Whatever, he was still on the payroll. Look closer, Ace.

ACE
I still see Lonzo.

ROBERT walks over.

ROBERT
Oh yeah, it does look like Lonzo. Either he was too lazy or he forgot how to spell his name. Both options are equally plausible.

DEVIN
So, what do you all think about the big news?

Everyone looks at DEVIN with a blank stare.

HARRY
Don’t even tell me they hired another bullpen pitcher. Nonstop cooking for six people can get tedious enough.

FELIX
There are only four so-called pitchers plus Manny.

HARRY
I eat too.

FELIX
I’ve never seen you do that.

HARRY
I try not to make a big deal over it. I eat a variety of things, such as—

MANNY
Guys, Ace was saying something.

ACE
No I wasn’t.

MANNY
Wasn’t someone saying something?

DEVIN
I teased having big news, guess no one remembers.

ROBERT
I know I don’t. I really want to know what Harry’s been eating.

HARRY
Never mind that, just let Devin talk.

DEVIN
Thank you. I was trying to ask if you saw the news about our new ranking.

ROBERT
Uh oh.

FELIX
Did we win something?

ACE
If I brought my wallet then my money would be on some food-related category. But since I don’t have my wallet, I’ll bet my shoes on it.

MANNY
Your shoes?

ACE
Not like I’ll be needing them.

FELIX
True. I’ll bet my dignity. It’s not a whole lot.

DEVIN
Focus! I’m trying to tell you all we just got voted most popular bullpen in the country!

MANNY
Most popular bullpen? How did that happen?

DEVIN
Nobody knows.

ACE
That’s great news! Did we win anything?

DEVIN
Bragging rights.

FELIX
Don’t you think people will get annoyed if we brag about it?

DEVIN
Yeah. Hasn’t stopped me before and it won’t stop me this time either.

ROBERT
By the way, how did the Charleston Capitols’ bullpen do?

DEVIN
Let’s just say not good, to put it lightly.

ROBERT
Say it in the harshest terms you can, they’re not here to hear it.

DEVIN
They were one gigantic flop on the list.

ROBERT
Ouch.

DEVIN
You asked.

HARRY
Guys quiet down, you know that guy who does the voice stuff to the fans?

FELIX
The stadium announcer?

HARRY
Sure. He’s about to make an announcement.

FELIX
How would you know?

HARRY
Because I know.

FELIX
That doesn’t answer the question at all but I guess I shouldn’t ask questions I don’t want the answer to.

ROBERT
Definitely. It didn’t take you all that much time to learn that one.

FELIX
A few weeks is longer than it should have.

HARRY
Guys! Quiet.

Everyone in the bullpen stops talking. The STADIUM ANNOUNCER begins to talk.

STADIUM ANNOUNCER
This is usually the time when we wish our young fans a happy birthday, but since we don’t have any young fans in the crowd, the Indianapolis Primitives wish Harry...uh...Harry a happy birthday! Thanks for all your hard work, Harry!

HARRY
Hear that? He thanked me!

MANNY
Happy birthday Harry! I didn’t know it was your birthday!

HARRY
Oh I don’t like to make a big deal over it.

FELIX
Sounds like you do.

ACE
You should’ve made a birthday cake!

HARRY
No way! I had Lorenzo make one.

ROBERT
You do know he’s going to eat all of it, right?

HARRY
Nah, it’s not cotton candy flavored. Or at least, it shouldn’t be.

ACE
When’s he bringing it?

HARRY
He’s not. I’m going over to Lorenzo’s Kitchen to eat it. You all want to come?

Everyone looks around. ROBERT speaks for all of them.

ROBERT
Sure. Don’t see why not.

HARRY
Great! Happy birthday to me!

DEVIN
By the way, I don’t mean to be a downer, but how much longer do you think we’re gonna play?

MANNY
You don’t play at all. But you are talented!

DEVIN
What’s that even supposed to mean? I should’ve worded that differently. I meant the league in general. A lot of people on some teams are getting the—

MANNY
We don’t talk about it in this bullpen. Just take precautions, and we’ll get through this. Hopefully.

DEVIN
But how much longer do you think the season will last?

MANNY
As I said, just take precautions. The bench will always be here for us. Now who’s up for some birthday cake?

Everyone gets up to leave.

STADIUM ANNOUNCER
Bye Harry! Happy birthday!

HARRY
Did you guys hear that?!

ROBERT
Yeah, and I think our pitcher did too. Look behind you.

They all turn around to the screen behind the outfield to watch a replay of the pitcher being startled and dropping the ball mid-pitch, advancing the runners and allowing a run to score.

MANNY
Alright now I’m definitely out of here.

Friday TV Ratings 7/31/20: WWE Smackdown Leads with Shark Tank Close Behind, Greatest #AtHome Videos Steady (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: ABC made a major rebound on the last Friday of July with their usual 'Shark Tank' (0.5) and '20/20' (0.4) repeat lineup. Although the '20/20' encore was flat with last week, 'Shark Tank' was up a staggering two-tenths from the dreadful 0.3 it managed a week prior. Tank' performed well enough to match Fox's typically dominant 'WWE Smackdown' (0.5).

Over on CBS, 'The Greatest #AtHome Videos' (0.4) held even with last week and led into repeats of 'Magnum PI' (0.3) and 'Blue Bloods' (0.3). Those were roughly on par with NBC's 'The Wall' (0.3) and 'Dateline' (0.5) encores. And the CW had 0.1s across the board with repeats of 'Masters of Illusion' and 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?'.

Finals Update: Repeats of Shark Tank (-0.1) and Dateline NBC (-0.1) adjusted down.

(Note: Click the names of the shows written in purple or blue to be taken to their pages in the TV Ratings Guide Cable Database.)

Thursday TV Ratings 7/30/20: Holey Moley Returns Steady while Don’t Drops and To Tell The Truth Rises (UPDATED)

Back from a week off the air, renewal prospects for ABC's Don't (0.4) are becoming increasingly bleak. The Adam Scott game show fell a tenth from its last episode, falling behind both lead-in 'Holey Moley' (0.5) and lead-out 'To Tell the Truth' (0.5). Now at less than half of the preliminary 0.9 it posted on premiere night, it's becoming clear that the program has essentially flamed out. 'Truth' was actually up a tenth and built from its lead-in for the first time this season while 'Moley' was flat.

But ABC ended up losing to a 'Young Sheldon' repeat (0.6) over on CBS despite the alphabet network having an all-original lineup. The other encores on CBS all managed a 0.4 rating. Fox's 'MLB Baseball' (0.4) only performed slightly better than drama repeats but did outdo NBC's 'Ellen' and 'SVU' encores (0.4/0.3/0.3). And the CW had another round of 0.1s with 'Killer Camp' and 'Penn and Teller'.

Finals Update: All shows held their preliminary ratings.

Wednesday TV Ratings 7/29/20: Ultimate Tag Ends Higher, Tough As Nails Ties United We Fall in First, Agents of SHIELD Steady (UPDATED)


Note: Original broadcasts are highlighted in BLUE.

Preliminary Analysis: After a promising 1.3 debut after 'The Masked Singer' in late May, Fox's 'Ultimate Tag' (0.3) ended its ten-episode run in truly ghastly fashion. The competition series matched the ugly low-point it had posted the past two weeks and fell behind its 'MasterChef' repeat lead-in (0.4) once again. Although its steady stream of ratings in the 0.5-0.6 range was quite solid, this sour final impression definitely jeopardizes the program's chances of returning for a second season.

In more encouraging news, ABC's 'United We Fall' (0.5) held even in week three and tied for the night's top broadcast. Although chances of renewal are slim, 'Fall' seems to be doing quite well for the time being. But there was uglier news later in the night as 'Agents of SHIELD' (0.2) lost a tenth and fell back down to its rotten series low at 10pm. 'SHIELD' will air its two-hour series finale in two weeks on August 12th. Sandwiched in-between the two originals were repeats of 'The Goldbergs' (0.4), 'The Conners' (0.3), and 'American Housewife' (0.3).

CBS's 'Tough as Nails' (0.5) got a precious tenth back after two weeks of posting 0.4s. It led into encores of a 'Price Is Right' special (0.4) and 'SEAL Team' (0.3). NBC had 0.4s across the board for its 'One Chicago' repeat trio. And the CW's 'Bulletproof' (0.1) gained a tenth after last week's dreadful 0.0. It led out of a repeat of 'The 100' (0.1).

(R) = repeat
(F) = finale

Finals Update: The season finale of Fox's 'Ultimate Tag' (+0.1) and 'Agents of SHIELD' (+0.1) adjusted up. This puts 'Ultimate Tag a tenth above its last episode and 'SHIELD' steady with its previous outing.

Tuesday TV Ratings 7/28/20: Regis Philbin and Coronavirus 20/20 Specials Boost What Would You Do? to Season High, America’s Got Talent Returns Down (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: After weeks of meager Tuesday ratings, ABC swapped out comedy repeats for 20/20 specials and got a sizable boost in the process. First came the 8pm broadcast honoring the life and legacy of acclaimed talk show host Regis Philbin (0.5) and then the slightly more robust one covering the Covid-19 pandemic (0.6). Awarded with a stronger and more compatible lead-in, 'What Would You Do?' (0.5) rose two-tenths to a stellar new season high at 10pm.

But even with the alphabet network's renewed prosperity, NBC's unstoppable duo of 'America's Got Talent' (1.0) and 'World of Dance' (0.7) still took the lead for the evening. 'AGT' shed a tenth from its last original while 'Dance' actually gained two-tenths after last week's rotten season low.

The CW was even with 'Stargirl' (0.2) but remained low with the series premiere of 'Tell Me a Story' (0.1). CBS and Fox were entirely in repeat mode but CBS's dramas (0.5/0.4/0.3) remained a notch above Fox's 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.3) and 'Prodigal Son' (0.2).

Finals Update: The repeat of NCIS (-0.1) adjusted down.
