Season 18 better knock it out of the park with this finale! Also, I'm in my annual worry that the season finale will be the series finale. Do you have any idea yet on the chances of SVU Season 19?

Chris Zimmer said...

@Draven Long - I've thought that SVU wouldn't get renewed for the last two seasons but it still managed to get another year both times. The lower ratings would likely not be acceptable on another network but for NBC, it's ratings are passable. As I thought it would be canceled the last two seasons and it got renewed, I'm afraid to be positive about renewal for fear it will be the kiss of death! Right now, I have no ideas which way the series will go.

Every website (like EW and such) are rating SVU as certain or almost certain to be renewed. Aren´t they reliable sources? I'm lost now :(

Chris Zimmer said...

@Louise Amaro - a few years ago, all those same web sites said Law & Order would get renewed and then - surprise - it got canceled. I've learned that NBC can be quite fickle. As I said, I worried it would be canceled the past two seasons and it got renewed, so if I say I think it's going to be renewed, the opposite will happen!

Ana Andrade said...

@Louise Amaro & @Chris - keep in mind that a lot of factors go into deciding whether to renew a show or not. It's just not about ratings (which are compared both across networks and within the network). Things like age of the show, cost of production, etc also matter.

Ana Andrade said...

I forgot to add that you shouldn't take what these sites say literally. The most they can do is give their best guess as to what might happen.

Chris Zimmer said...

@Ana Andrade - of course. Simple math - if money coming in for a show doesn't offset the overall production cost, and also leave plenty of profit for the network and everyone else who has a stake in the show, a show will be gone. But ad buyers usually look at ratings/viewership, especially in the 18-49 demo. A show that is on the decline in viewership numbers, as is SVU, the less money they can command for ads. And that's sometimes how a death spiral begins...

Ok, so if we worry about cancellation we might be okay. I'll keep that in mind. Lol
