    What’s This TV Show About?

    Airing on the CBS television network, the Tough As Nails TV show is hosted by Phil Keoghan of The Amazing Race. The series celebrates everyday Americans who roll up their sleeves and don’t think twice about working long hard hours and getting their hands dirty, in order to keep their country running. In the show, competitors consider the calluses on their hands a badge of honor and are tested for their strength, endurance, life skills, and most importantly, mental toughness in challenges that take place at real-world job sites. Even after they “punch out” of the individual competition, they will have the opportunity to win additional prizes in the team competitions that continue throughout the season. At the end of the season, the winning individual contestant will be crowned as the Tough as Nails champion and will win big prizes. Competitors this season are Kelsy Reynolds, Christine Connors, Takeru “Tak” Tanabe, Jerome Kupuka’a, Lamar Edwin Hanger, Lia Mort, Dequincey “Quincey” Walker, Kalimba Edwards, Mike Shaffer, Elizabeth Rillera, Sarah Ham, Alfredo “Alfie” P. Rivera.

    Season Three Ratings

    The third season of Tough As Nails averages a 0.50 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.11 million viewers in the live+same day ratings (includes all DVR playback through 3:00 AM). Compared to season two, that’s up by 9% in the demo and down by 3% in viewership. While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but the higher-rated series are usually renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.

    Telly’s Take

    We don’t have to wonder if CBS will cancel or renew Tough As Nails since it’s already been renewed for a fourth season.  The show’s been a respectable performer so, will the programmers start running cycles twice a year (ala Survivor) or, could it alternate with The Amazing Race, Keoghan’s other gig?  I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
