Law & Order: Criminal Intent (NBC/USA): Ratings Recap

'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' premiered September 30, 2001 on NBC to a moderate 4.4/10 adults 18-49 rating/share and 12.8 million viewers. It hit a ratings peak of 6.8/18 and 19.3 million viewers in the fourth episode and that would remain the highest the program ever performed. The first season overall did relatively OK, averaging a 4.4 rating, but the second season is where the show found its best numbers. That season averaged a 5.2 rating with over 15 million viewers and concluded on a very strong note with a 6.0 rating and 16.2 million viewers. But after that, the ratings gradually began falling, and by the sixth season, it averaged only a 3.0 rating with 9.5 million viewers, prompting NBC to cancel the show. Following its cancellation, it was picked up by USA Network and aired a seventh season split between fall 2007 and summer 2008 where it was regularly one of the strongest scripted cable programs. The show would ultimately air an additional three seasons, concluding for good in June 2011.
