Indeed, the figures were beyond praise. The season premiere has garnered almost ten million viewers (9.873) with a 1.52 demo rating among adults 18-49. The total amount of viewers, including DVR, was about 14.25 million. However, also worth noting that the viewing audience dropped almost twice (5.355 million) by the end of the season. Nonetheless, such viewership was more than enough for the decision on renewal.
Meanwhile, the response from critics and viewers was mainly average. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season of SEAL Team holds a score of 5.88/10 and a 68% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have evaluated the military drama at 4.1/5/78%. The results by Metacritic were even worse, 57/100 and 4.9/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. On IMDb, the viewers have rated SEAL Team at 6.8/10 ~ 5,200 votes. Though we don't regard these statistics impressive enough, CBS most likely paid their attention mostly to television ratings in their decision. Therefore, even despite the decrease in the viewership by the end of the first season, SEAL Team looks like a long-term project on CBS.
