The show's ratings were actually pretty decent compared to most titles axed this season. In fact, the drama's viewership average — 8.4 million — makes it the most-watched title among the flurry of cancellations this week before networks have their upfront presentations to advertisers. CBS sets a pretty high bar for renewal, however, and Scorpion‘s 1.5 rating among adults 18-49 was lagging.
