‘Ransom’ Renewed by CBS for Season 3

CBS and Canadian broadcaster Global have renewed Ransom for a third season.

Production on the new season is set to begin in October. As with past seasons, CBS will be the U.S. home for the series, with Global broadcasting the show in Canada.

CBS for two seasons has scheduled “Ransom” on Saturday nights, where original sscripted programming is rarely seen on broadcast. As an international acquisition, however, “Ransom” provides a low-cost programming option for CBS at a time when reruns perform increasingly poorly against the wealth of viewing options available on streaming and cable, and broadasters are under pressure to actively program year-round.

12 Lowest-Rated TV Shows of 2017-18 Season (Photos)

The 2017-18 television season is in the books, and as usual, some shows performed better than others. Like, better than all of these.

Broadcast’s lowest-rated entertainment series this time around was CBS Saturday show “Ransom,” which our readers have probably never heard of. ABC’s reality competition “The Toy Box” was just one-tenth of a ratings point behind that one among adults 18-49, which is the demographic most-beloved by advertisers.

See how the 12 lowest-rated broadcast TV shows rank by their ratings below. For purposes of this story, we elected not to count shows on The CW, which would have gobbled up a bunch of spots. See the full rankings below.

13 Lowest-Rated TV Shows of the 2017-18 Season That Have Been Renewed… So Far (Photos)

  • The Wrap
Fun fact for TV shows on the bubble: You don’t actually have to have stellar ratings to get renewed. Yes, Nielsen numbers are a big part of the decision-making process when the broadcast networks decide what series to ax and what to keep ahead of their upfront presentations, but they aren’t everything. Each year, plenty of shows with modest viewership squeak by. Scroll through the TheWrap’s gallery to see the 11 lowest-rated TV shows of the 2017-18 season — so far– that got renewed. (Of course we counted “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” here, because of that last-minute NBC pickup). All ratings in this story come from Nielsen’s “most current” data stream, which includes a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available. Least-viewed is first, most-watched last. And, yes, there are ties.
