Ratings-wise, the few weeks have not been very kind to Inhumans. It started off with okay ratings but kept dropping ever since. The show already had a very small viewer-base so every drop would hurt it in the long-run. Finally, it seems that the show was able to recover a bit, as it saw a slight increase in its ratings. This is especially interesting, as the World Series dominated the night on FOX and its lead-in Once Upon a Time remained steady that night.
The show ticked up to a 0.5 after last week’s series low of a 0.4 with 2.13 million viewers. It managed to increase its ratings in a night that remained rather steady. Other shows like CBS’ Dateline or CW’s Jane the Virgin kept their numbers from last week. The only drop last Friday was NBC’s Blindspot, as it premiered on its new timeslot down by 0.1.
As of now, this show is still likely to get canceled. If it manages to rise a bit in its ratings and stay consistent until it ends in two weeks, there is a chance it might survive. TVbytheNumber.com’s very own Cancel Bear still has the show as a tossup, but slightly ahead of shows Ten Days in the Valley, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World and Once Upon a Time. It still has the advantage of being a mini-series, so it’s shortened episode count may help it. It also helps that ABC co-funded the project which means they have less to lose with the show’s production. What may, however, counteract this advantage is that IMAX lost $11.1 million on this project, which means they are unlikely to return for a second season.
What do you think? Do you think the show might remain steady in the coming weeks?
