NBC’s “Young Rock,” Now in 3rd Season, Still Has No Audience, Sees 34% Drop This Year


Yes, “Young Rock” is still on TV.

Last Friday, 1,481,000 people watched it. Only 270K of those were under 49 years old. That’s not good.

No one knows the show produced by Dwayne The Rock Johnson about his early life and adventures is still on TV. No one cares except NBC, which owns it and was hopeful eventually someone would smack their forehead and say, “Young Rock! I love it! How did I live without it?!”

This has not happened. The season 3 average is down 34% from season 2.

This season began in November and has run 8 episodes so far. There are possibly 5 left, although it’s unclear what the order was from network.

Will there be a fourth season? If there is, the characters will be watching us, not the other way around.
