Season-to-date, Alert: MPU has been averaging 2.6 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating (with Live+7 playback), down a steep 32% and 40% from its freshman numbers.

Out of the 24 entertainment programs Fox has aired this TV season, it ranks No. 6 in audience, while only Cleaning LadySo You Think You Can DanceTMZ InvestigatesGrimsburg and The Great North pull a smaller demo number.

Set in the Philadelphia PD’s Missing Persons Unit (MPU), Alert: Missing Persons Unit with each episode chronicles the life-or-death search for a missing person, headed by detectives Jason Grant and Nikki Batista (played by Scott Caan and Dania Ramirez). Once married, Jason and Nikki have a very personal connection to their cases seeing as their own young son went missing and was never found — despite what Season 1 for a long while led us to believe.
