1.071 Million viewers

Although it was still the highest-rated Wednesday show on Comedy Central, beating The Daily Show by 218 thousand viewers and 0.2 rating points.

What is going on with Comedy Central?  All of its shows this week seem to have fallen off a cliff!

Granted, I don't know a whole lot about how TV ratings work, but at what level does a show typically get cancelled? 

Also, is the second half of season 7 a sure thing, or is it still possible that the show might just suddenly be cancelled before 2013 even gets here?

I don't think at all that 7B will be canceled -- the episodes have already been contracted (and paid?) for, and Futurama is still the highest-rated show on Comedy Central (other than The Daily Show most weeks).  It's just that EVERYTHING on Comedy Central seems to be tanking.  Fallout from the Viacom fight?

South Park, Tosh.0 and Workaholics all pull 2 million plus viewers.

Sorry Mongo, Futurama is not the highest rated show on CC.

The past ten days' Comedy Central ratings, which are what I am looking at:

Wednesday Aug 23
Futurama   CMDY   10:00 PM   1071   0.6
Daily Show   CMDY   11:00 PM   853   0.4

Tuesday Aug 22

TOSH.O   CMDY   9:27 PM   969   0.5

Monday Aug 21
(nothing makes the list)

Sunday Aug 20
(nothing makes the list)

(no listing for Saturday Aug 19)

Friday Aug 18
(nothing makes the list)

Thursday Aug 17
Daily Show   CMDY   11:00 PM   1.403   0.6

These ratings are for the entire day.  Only "The Daily Show" normally gets higher ratings (and sometimes "Colbert Report").  You were saying?

Guys, Futurama isn't going anywhere. Now I know that it's the truth. According to Comedy Central, the ratings don't matter. Like previously said, the profits/stocks do. And I think they're doing pretty good right now.

Plus, on the Comedy Central tumblr post to this guy's question about Season finale, it said "if you want to get really technical about it. Futurama’s not going anywhere."

So hopefully that means something.

Well, for one thing, Daily Show and Colbert Report are airing repeats.  They'll be back next week, but people tend not to watch those shows when they are merely repeats.

I know FOR FACT that CC "PLANS" to keep Futurama going for at least another production season, another 26 episode season 8 that will air in two groupings: A in 2014 and B in 2015.
How do you know that?

« #538 : 08-24-2012 20:59 »

7B has already been contracted for.  Comedy Central cannot simply break the contract without sustaining heavy financial penalties.  I do not know if the later episodes are still in production, but as far as I know they have all been written and the voice acting completed.  Plus Comedy Central have stated that they will keep Futurama going "as long as South Park runs".

Not only that, but it is already in production.  Most of the writing, some of the voice acting and the initial steps of the animation have already begun for 7B.

And Naturama at 10:30 was 1.365 Million.



There are actually both episodes on the last week, but they are almost on top of each other.

Finally a good viewership total, but only for the final episodes of the broadcast season.

Wow, this is just like last season.

People don't have the chance on Wednesdays, or AKA Work Days. So once they get done and rush home, they only make it for the second episode. :/

Why do we always get these kinda ratings? I blame the lack of advertising. In 2010 and 2011, there were ads for the new season on alot of channels, like TBS, Adult Swim, Hell even MTV!

But also, I am surprised that the shocking cancellation news didn't help raise viewers. I thought that might have gotten us some new fans! Oh well......

With these kinda ratings, Futurama is doomed, as previously announced.

Maybe Chuck Lorre should be in charge of Futurama's third run. That way, we can finally have consistently high ratings (and a laugh track). :O_o:

Thanks for posting this, though. Does anybody know what the last column signifies? I assume the penultimate one is number of viewers in millions.

The last number represents the percentage of televisions viewing the show during that timeslot, and yes the other is viewers in millions.

1.5 million is still pretty good!

This is a old show after all; (1999-2013), that's been canned and brought back numerous times, and in numerous ways.

I'm pretty happy, as I thought it would get right under 1 million actually.

But for comparison to another cult animated scifi show airing new this summer; "The Venture Bros." on at midnight on Sundays on Adult Swim got 1.49 million viewers (on June 9th) and is much cheaper to make by comparison.

Bear in mind, Futurama apparently won (tying with Royal Pains) the night as far as cable-original programming went.

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2013/06/20/wednesday-cable-ratings-futurama-royal-pains-win-night-necessary-roughness-daily-show-south-beach-tow-more/188185/

Sadly, with the show's budget that still probably wouldn't be enough to justify keeping it on, I'm guessing (if it wasn't already cancelled, that is). Maybe if it held those numbers, but that's unlikely as the season progresses. Even still, it's no slouch.

Well the show is currently #14 on iTunes, so that at least gives me hope that at least some people are still watching the show, but the ratings drop this Season is still really suprising to me. Normally the show would lose about 1 million viewers for the 3rd episode of the Season, but instead it just dropped immediately to 1 million for pretty much no reason. Hell, it didn't even reach the highest of the night for Comedy Central. Sigh, I guess there really isn't any place for Futurama on television.

I'm happy.. as I believe the show deserves to end with dignity and not be made into 600 eps like so many animated FOX families we all know.

Finality is awesome, it's a great show, it deserves to end.

Dude, I am still blaming the Thursday to Wednesday night shift. Also, the lack of advertising too. We lost ALOT of viewers from that. Last season was a perfect example. Everybody probably DVRed it, or bought it from iTunes. Or hell, waiting for the DVD releases. Wednesday just isn't a good day for people.

Consider me a part of the problem for Season 7A. I didn't have TV at the time, so I just waited for it to come to Netflix. An agonizingly long wait.

Currently, I have Comcast. I was surprised to find that this show cannot be legally streamed on Comcast's OnDemand, on Hulu, or any other legal medium I am aware of. Can we consider that to be a part of the problem, as well? :o

It may be due to the fact that this show is owned by Fox (News Corp) by broadcast by Comedy Central (Viacom). But still...

God.

Not that I'm rejoicing at the show's low ratings or anything, but at this point it seems totally irrelevant to me whether the show brings in a bunch of viewers or not. Comedy Central has canceled it, and I don't think awesome ratings are going to change any of the executives' minds. It's still probably more economically viable to air these episodes to low ratings than to not air them at all, so it's not like bad ratings are going to prevent the network from airing the ten remaining episodes. Moreover, as the show has always done pretty well in terms of its DVD sales, it's not like Fox is going to hold back on releasing 7B on DVD in December. These low ratings literally have no effect on anything, as far as I'm concerned.

Honestly, I find the fact that the show's been canceled kind of liberating. I don't feel obligated to watch the episodes the moment they air; I don't feel obligated to tell other people how great the show is so as to improve its ratings. Instead, I can just sit back and enjoy the rest of the series at my leisure, knowing that nothing I do will change the fact that the show will be ending in ten short weeks. I agree with MuchAdo that it deserves to die with dignity, so despite the fact that it is my favorite show and it will always hold a very special place in my heart, I'm almost happy to see it go: I don't want it to go on interminably and embarrass itself even more than it already has. I'm fairly pleased with the season thus far, so if things continue in this manner, I'll be fine with this being Futurama's last hurrah.
