Saving Grace (TNT): Ratings Recap

TNT's 'Saving Grace' premiered July 23, 2007 to a 1.5/4 adults 18-49 rating/share and 6.42 million viewers, holding the full demo from its 'The Closer' lead-in. Those would end up being its best ratings as it wasn't able to keep up with the juggernaut cable ratings 'Closer' was bringing in. Despite hovering in the 4-5 million viewer range throughout the summer, the final four episodes of the first season aired in December to low audiences. The Dec. 3rd episode, for instance, had a 'Closer' lead-in (1.3 rating, 6.05 million), yet tumbled by 50% to 0.7 with 3.04 million viewers. Things started to look better at the start of the second season in 2008 with the premiere delivering 1.2 in the demo with 5.16 million viewers. The summer '08 portion the season was pretty promising as well, mostly staying in the 4-5 million range, but the second portion of the season which aired in the spring of 2009 fell hard to the low 2-millions and wasn't able to recover. A third and final season aired in the summer of '09 & spring of 2010 averaging just 0.6 in the demo with 2.57 million viewers. The show was cancelled after three seasons. Note: we do not have 18-49 data for every episode, but it was available for the majority of them.
