Season Premiere: FOX’s Summer series Wayward Pines returned for its second season last Wednesday, though it could only muster a 0.9 rating based on the overnights for the 18-49 demographic with 3.1 million total viewers. The bad news is that score matched its series low. The good news is that the drop of 18% from its prior season average is well within the range (maybe even ahead of the curve) with what we have been seeing with the ratings declines this past year. In Fall, FOX’s Gotham debuted with a 1.5 rating based on the overnights which was down 27% from its average for its first season. The Last Man on Earth was down 13% for its Fall premiere and Sleepy Hollow was down 33%. All three of those shows were renewed. Wayward Pines held pretty steady with its series premiere throughout its first season last Summer, so if it follows the same track this year then M. Night Shyamalan may get that third season he has planned to wrap up the story. But if the show slips too much and starts to get into the 0.6 or 0.5 range based on the overnights, I don’t like its chances of coming back next Summer. The next few weeks could be key to its survival, so be sure to keep a close eye on its numbers. Read the full article at our partner site CancelledSciFi.com.
