On-the-bubble The Company You Keep ended its freshman run with a possible audience low (barely 2.1 mil) while steady with a 0.3 demo rating (its fifth out of 10 episodes).

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Steve Harvey is not a judge or lawyer and merely offers an alternative forum of dispute resolution.
While I really liked last night’s episode of The Blacklist most have been filler. I feel like they are dragging out this final season. How many episodes are there? I’m sure the final two, maybe three, will be great but it’s sure a long road to get there.
There is still 11 episodes on the way. The final season have 22 episodes.
I’m thinking if the writer’s strike drags on, NBC may hold some of those episodes for fall. But that’s just my two cents:)
I figured. That’s to many episodes for a series anymore. Shortened seasons are the new norm. No wonder I’m bored, lol.
I hope the company you keep will be renewed.
I watched TCYK for the first time since the pilot. It seems like they neatly tied off most of the story lines but still left a clear path creatively to a second season.
I really enjoyed The Company You Keep! I would love it if it was renewed!
The best simpsons episode in awhile.
Housebroken making better ratings than The Great North 😂
Crossing my fingers for TCYK renewal! Love all Nicoletti fam!
Emma found a way to continue working w Charlie. Nvr saw the betrayal of David by gf coming. Intrigued w Daphne character; could be highly entertaining. I watched finale in real time but will watch again OnDemand to plump up ratings
I love The Company You Keep and I hope it gets a season 2. I keep forgetting Housebroken is back. I am planning on watching the second season.
I loved it! I think a show should be given at least 2 seasons to build a following.
They always cancel good shows.
The company you keep was very interesting and was just getting it’s legs, and True lies is just cute. Please don’t cancel these two shows.
