‘Conviction:’ Season 1 Low Ratings Could Cause Show’s Cancellation – Report

Star Hayley Atwell has often been praised for her work in Marvel’s Agent Carter although the show was cancelled as it drew low ratings.

She now has a new TV show, “Conviction,” on ABC. It has taken over the old time slot of “Castle.” The question that has come up is whether the TV show is worth watching?

Will it be cancelled or will the network keep it?

With such a question, this means the show is not doing well.

“Conviction” was launched on 3rd October and in the 18-49 demographic it pulled a 0.92 rating with 5.17 million viewers. The start of the show was disappointing.

“Conviction” is a legal drama series which talks about what happens when Hayes Morrison, played by Hayley Atwell, an attorney and the daughter of a previous President, is “blackmailed” to join the Conviction Integrity Unit.

It is a department of the NYC, that re-examines cases when a wrongful conviction is suspected. Daniel Franzese, Shawn Ashmore, Eddie Cahill ,Merrin Dungey, Manny Montana and  Emily Kinney comprise the rest of the cast.

The second episode of the show had a more than 15% fall as it registered 0.78 rating with 4.23 million viewers.

According to Tv Series Finale, ratings for “Conviction” have been awful, although it’s very early in the season to really conclude anything.  With 4.7 million viewers and 0.85 rating in the demo, it is the lowest rated series in the network. ‘Castle’ which got cancelled, averaged in its demo a 1.08 rating with 6.20 million viewers last year.

The legal drama, “Conviction,” seems to be on thin ice, and may be cancelled and even won’t be allowed to complete the 13 episodes, if the numbers don’t have quick improvement.
