Which Canceled TV Shows Had the Highest Ratings This Broadcast Season?
Some broadcast TV dramas and comedies are still awaiting judgment for the 2023–2024 season, but the guillotine has fallen on more than a dozen others.
And some of those cancellations came as surprises. CBS canceled East New York, for instance, even though the freshman drama got better ratings than the network’s renewed shows So Help Me Todd and CSI: Vegas. And the same network axed the long-running NCIS: Los Angeles, which also had CSI: Vegas beat.
Over on Fox, meanwhile, The Resident met its end, despite being the network’s third-best scripted series in terms of total viewers.
Here’s how the average ratings (from TV Series Finale) stack up for this season’s canceled TV shows, with the exceptions of those whose final seasons have yet to air.
