The Player #10

This week in the ratings, The Player received a 7.0 in adults aged 18-49, with 3.22 million viewers. This isn’t a large change from last week, it is only slightly lower. The Player seems to be evening out, and I don’t see a the ratings changing drastically in these last few episodes. Because the show was cut short to a 9-episode order, The Player will be wrapping up this semester in two short weeks. Taking this into consideration, I don’t anticipate seeing The Player continuing, or making any major moves that would make canceling any less eminent than it looks.

According to Rotten Tomatoes, my predictions are being echoed by other viewers and critics alike. The Critics Consensus is described in the following way, “The Player‘s convoluted premise weighs down a game cast, bringing nothing original to the table.” The harsh, but honest, take on the show is something that can’t help the ratings.
