The David Boreanaz military drama is perfect for CBS viewers, yet its ratings haven't been great. "On paper and in practice, this is a fastball down the middle for the CBS crowd, a not-very-serialized procedural about good guys versus bad guys," says Matt Webb Mitovich. "The genial Boreanaz brings with him 20-plus consecutive years of TV stardom. And until recently, SEAL Team benefited from having the still-going-strong Survivor as its lead-in. And yet its current average is down a full 20 percent from Season 1, now placing it No. 7 in the demo among all CBS dramas and 12th in total audience."
