The CBS drama series Fire Country has proven to be a big hit for the network. According to reports by TVLine, "In the latest TV ratings, there was a three-way tie for the Friday demo win, while two CBS dramas veritably tied for the night's largest audience. CBS' SWAT (with 5.4 million total viewers and a 0.4 rating) is again looking at its best audience since May 2019, but it dipped in the demo. Fire Country (5.9 mil/0.5) and Blue Bloods (5.91 mil/0.4, read recap) were steady in the demo, with the already-renewed former eyeing its second-largest audience to date." The series centers on protagonist Bode Donovan, a prisoner who signs up for a local firefighting program to get his sentence reduced. Bode is inspired to leave his old habits behind and start living a life deserving of praise because of the heroic efforts of the firefighters working nonstop to put out the roaring fires in Northern California.
