What’s This TV Show About?

Airing on the CBS television network, the 48 Hours TV show dives into the most intriguing and compelling true crime cases. The series, which premiered in 1988, has developed a rich history of original reporting and impact journalism that has helped exonerate wrongly convicted people, caused cold cases to be reopened and solved, and, along the way, changed lives. Correspondents include Erin Moriarty, Richard Schlesinger, Tracy Smith, and Peter Van Sant.

Season 35 Ratings

The 35rd season of 48 Hours averages a 0.23 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.52 million viewers. Compared to season 34, that’s down by 28% in the demo and down by 11% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (includes DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how 48 Hours stacks up against other CBS TV shows.

Note: It’s worth mentioning that CBS skipped season 32 in their numbering. In the network’s press release about the Fall 2018 premiere, CBS touted 48 Hours’ season 31 debut. A year later, the network announced the show’s Fall 2019 debut and called it season 33. On CBS.com and Paramount+, episodes have the correct season designation, which is what we follow.
