iZombie Ratings Slip – Can the Season 2 Finale Save Them?
Earlier today, TV Ratings Report announced that the iZombie ratings dropped to a season low with last night’s episode “Reflections of the Way Liv Used to Be“.
The exact numbers were that “the show slipped a tenth to 1.1 million viewers” and to a 0.4 rating among people 18-49. I actually hate that iZombie ratings were the worst this season for an episode that was probably one of the best we’ve seen in the second half of season 2. I know that iZombie had a bit of a slow start since picking back up in January; and yes, slow builds like that often do more harm than good, especially with newer shows. But they’ve really ramped things up quite a bit in the last few episodes, and they also released a special promo for next week’s two-hour-long season finale. Check it out:
Meanwhile, the episode description is pretty darn ominous:
Liv (Rose McIver) and Ravi (Rahul Kohli) are in need of help and find an unlikely ally in Blaine (David Anders). Detective Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) and Dale Bozzio (guest star Jessica Harmon) pursue a new lead on an old case. Meanwhile, when Major (Robert Buckley) finds himself in a world of trouble, sleazebag Brant Stone (guest star Ken Marino) comes to his rescue. Vaughn’s (guest star Steven Weber) evil side reaches a whole new level of mean.
I can’t help but speculate a bit – is Blaine going to remember anything? And Major getting “rescued” by a “sleazebag” – can that really turn out all that well? And how can Vaughn Du Clark get any more evil? I mean really?
Don’t be part of the iZombie ratings drop! Tune into episodes 2×18 (“Dead Beat”) and 2×19 (“Salivation Army”) Tuesday April 12th at 8 PM EDT! I mean, at the very least I can’t imagine it having a worse season finale than The Walking Dead season six…plus the iZombie writers (especially Bisanne Masoud and Bob Dearden) seem to think we’ll love it!
