'Five-0' given sixth season despite flat ratings during fifth

May 11th, 2015

Despite flat ratings this year — with the season five finale scoring a disappointing 1.0 on the coveted 18 to 49 demographics  radar — “Hawaii Five-O” was green-lighted for a sixth season, one of 10 scripted shows CBS renewed today.

It’s certainly a reason for the cast and crew to celebrate, but the red flag must be hoisted, pronto: scripts need to be bolstered and upgraded, cast and subplot characters pared down, and the focus should be on more crime fighting than familial entanglements that have become routine and challenging for viewers who are not die-hard loyalists.

 

Here’s how the website, tvseriesfinale, summed up the ups  and downs of season five; the Nielsen numbers reflect a sagging rating performance and uncertain and erratic  demographics where it counts most:

    I'm thinking CBS may only want to run the show 7 years, so if they get one more year, that would fulfill the mission.
