Cancellation Watch: Wynnona Earp May Have the Best Chance of Survival Among the Syfy Spring Shows, Plus the Ratings Roundup

wynonna-earp-syfy-cancelledRatings Results of Interest: On Friday, Syfy’s Wynonna Earp held stead for the week at a 0.15 rating based on the overnights for the 18-49 demographic.  Despite its low numbers, it is currently the best performing among that network’s Spring entries and it is a relatively inexpensive show to produce.  I like its chances of getting an escape-the-Network-Executioner-free card better than Hunters at this point, though with all the development Syfy has in the pipeline, they may decide to just clean house.  On Saturday, Starz’s Outlander slipped to a 0.21 rating, its lowest numbers of the season.  But those are still acceptable for that network and I believe we will hear word on a renewal pretty soon.  On Sunday, Showtime’s Penny Dreadful barely registered on a highly competitive night, pulling a 0.2 rating vs. the 3.7 score for Game of Thrones and the 2.0 for Fear the Walking Dead.  It sure seems like that one would be doing better if it aired on a different night of the week.  As for FTWD, it slipped to its lowest numbers yet, but it is still blowing away almost all the other scripted programming on television not named Game of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, or Empire, so no need to worry too much about it.  Read the full article at our partner site
