Zoo Recap Chloe Dies

Ratings: Zoo Dips to Series Lows

CBS’ Zoo this Tuesday delivered 4.1 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating, dipping 9 percent and a tenth to mark series lows.

That said, Season 2 of the James Patterson adaptation is averaging better numbers (4.8 mil/0.8) then either of CBS’ other summertime dramas, Sunday-bound BrainDead (3.6 mil/0.5) and American Gothic (3.2 mil/0.6).

Elsewhere on the night….

NBC | America’s Got Talent (10.7 mil/2.2) dipped to season lows, but of course easily led the night in both measures.

THE CW | Containment wrapped its run with 850,000 total viewers and a 0.3 rating, on par with last week.

FOX | Hotel Hell (2.4 mil/0.8) slipped 24 and 11 percent, while Coupled (1.3 mil/0.5) was flat.

The Big 3’s coverage of the Republican National Convention amassed 10.1 million viewers and a 2.1 demo rating, on par with their Night 1 total.

    American Gothic was on last night?? Great, my cable line up didn’t pick up that little change so I missed it. Makes me mad!!!

    I hope Zoo continues, but if not they’d BETTER give us a completion! No cliffhanger!

    The Chloe situation may have had a bit of a negative impact. Especially for a show that’s struggling to remain consistent in the ratings. It seems a little early in the show’s run for such a big loss. And truth be told, we like our summer shows to be just plain fun. Save the depressing deaths for the regular season.

    Good job Chloe fans. I went from looking forward to Zoo to on the fence about staying with the show. Fix it show runners.

    Back in the day when we had reruns, I might have caught the first season and then enjoyed the second season. But I didn’t watch the first season so I have no motivation to watch the second. I don’t want to go out of my way to watch the show by getting the cbs pay service. Perhaps they would be wise to rerun the first season before the second or at least offer it for free (not a free month of service dipsh*ts) online.

    Showrunners has to fix the error of making Chloe die. Is not possible. No wonder why the ratings were low, other wise this show will be cancelled soon. Chloe was a very important member of the team, how could the writers kill her. SO now who is going to be the inside person for the government? There is no other person

    Killing Chloe about did it for me. If they cancel it, which they probably will, is no skin off my back. They sure know how to ruin a show.

  8. Morisot says:

    Maybe shows like Zoo, and Sleepy Hollow, and Under The Dome are like ice cream cake — a delicious treat at first. But a soupy mess the longer you try and keep it around.

  9. Lou says:

    Killing Chloe was a fundamental mistake. It got rid of all her fans, not to mention the fans of many other characters who now expect their fave to be next.
    Also,
    1.the scientist, Mitch, replacing an intelligence operative Chloe, as group leader makes no sense. the next obvious choice would be on of the animal experts, Abraham or Jackson.
    2. they’ve added too many new cast members that no one cares about, from the stepmother, to Dariela to Logan, and are we REALLY supposed to believe they trust Logan who STARTED OFF betraying Jamie?
    3. how come this mutation happened over 100 years ago, but the animals only went wild now?
    4. what happened to the original premise of animals fighting back to preserve their habitat and the defiant pupil theory?
    5. Since animals don’t attack Jackson, why not just send HIM on all the dangerous excursions?
    6. When did that 19th century carnie guy X-ray an elephant? With THAT tiny machine?
    All round, this show has way too many plot holes to not at least be good-natured. Killing Chloe was a huge error, and the whole Mitch/Jamie/Logan byplay is dull as heck.
