UPDATE: As of 05/10/2013, ABC has cancelled Body of Proof after three seasons. Read article here.
Will Dr. Megan Hunt and her team get the ax from ABC this year? Find out if Body of Proof can get a season 4 renewal, here’s our early round-up:
After being bumped a couple of weeks by ABC, Body of Proof was finally set to air its third season premiere on Feb. 19 this year. Recently, the medical drama has gone through a series of shakeup in preparation for its third season comeback. The showrunners have decided to revamp the show by adding new elements in hopes to attract more viewers. Hence, a stronger season. Unfortunately, the rebooted version was not able to impress the network. The premiere fared below par with a 1.2 in rating and a total of 6.75 million total viewers.
Week two did not present progress either, the series dipped a -6% change in audience share (6.37 million).
The Dana Delany starring series has only aired five episodes from its thirteen episode order. The most recent episode aired posted a 1.5 in rating and drew 8.42 million set of eyeballs, the highest performance to date.
Currently staying on the Tuesday 10pm berth of ABC, the show is going against ‘Golden Boy’ a new cop drama from CBS. The CBS newbie premiered with okay ratings (1.8) and a total of 10.5 million viewers. Hopefully, the numbers of the medical series can sustain its steady ratings until the its third season finale. If this happens, it will be unlikely for the series to get the boot.
For now, we can predict that the show lies under a ‘toss up between renewal or cancellation’. According to Deadline, the show should at least stay on par with last season when it averaged a 2.1/6 in 18-49 and 9.9 million viewers.
