19 December 2014 5:55 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The ratings for Covert Affairs have been dropping each season for awhile. Will they keep falling this year? Will they drop so low that the USA series is cancelled or, will it be renewed for a sixth season? Stay tuned!

On Covert Affairs, operatives Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) and Auggie Anderson (Chris Gorham) work together in the CIA's Domestic Protection Division (Dpd). The show's cast also includes Kari Matchett, Peter Gallagher, Hill Harper, and Nicholas Bishop.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Final season averages: 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.54 »

Jon Voight has been cast as iconic college football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant in the independent high school football movie “Woodlawn.”

The sibling directing team of Jon and Andrew Erwin (“Moms’ Night Out”) are currently shooting “Woodlawn” in Birmingham, Ala., from a screenplay by Jon Erwin and Quinton Peeples. Kevin Downes and Daryl Lefever are producing.

The story is focused on star African-American player Tony Nathan and the spiritual awakening during 1973-74 season at Woodlawn High School in Birmingham amid forced integration of Alabama’s public high schools. Nathan was successfully recruited by Bryant to play for the University of Alabama and went on to a successful professional career.
