    LOL Rock Centre tied ANTM, Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie

  • disney rocks

    Heres a good NBC 2012-13 Wednesday schedule-

    8-9= TBL
    9-10= Grimm
    10-11= NEW drama

  • Clarke

    WOW. Rock Center has hit rock bottom. It would even be cancelled on the CW. What an embarrassment..

  • John A

    How can Rock Center still be on?

  • disney rocks

    Thought Middle would go up. Oh well. The show is safe for at least 1 more season due to syndication. A 2.1 is more than good enough for an ABC sitcom.

    Suburgatory dropping a million viewers from The middle isn’t good. Think ABC should keep it there next season. Not strong enough to be anchor. It’ll be a good :30 show.

  • HB

    MF adjusted up :D

  • Bee

    LMAO rock center. glad the revenge recap and apt. 23 didn’t adjust down.

    REALLY hoping scandal does well tonight!

  • disney rocks

    Rock Center should be cancelled.

    NBC should put a 1.5 hour movie from 8:30-10. Let BFF air Saturdays at 8, and put a sitcom rerun on at 8:30 starting next wednesday.

    @Disney rocks

    The Middle and Suburgatory had the same 18-49 demo, so Suburgatory is no weaker than The Middle, the only thing is The Middle has more viewers who are below 18 or above 49.

  • SarahL

    NBC has got to do something about Rock Center. It is bringing TheCW numbers.

  • Michael

    Rock Center is performing so badly, that I don’t even think the CW would save it from cancellation lol!

  • disney rocks

    The Middle gets a lot of viewers, but doesn’t do too well in A18-49.

  • John A

    Top Model repeats well but only rose a tenth for a original? Terrible

  • John A

    Apt 23 did bad for a premiere with that good lead in.

  • Michael

    Did anyone predict NBC would be performing this badly? They actually have shows under a 1.4.

  • Skylar

    No it didnt, it had a good retention.

  • Water Cooler

    NBC needs to keep Harry’s Law as that’s a whole lot of viewers that NBC can be taking advantage of. Remember guys viewers build demos for the shows behind it. If they can air Chicago Fire or County behind Harry’s Law those dramas will get off to great starts.

    Since people post schedules on here’s my schedule for NBC this fall:

    8:00 The Voice
    10:00 Smash

    8:00 The Voice
    9:00 Downwardly Mobile
    9:30 Lady Friends
    10:00 New Drama/SVU/Bad Girls

    8:00 Off Their Rockers
    8:30 Jimmy Fallon’s new comedy Table for Three
    9:00 Whitney
    9:30 Chelsea
    10:00 Chicago Fire

    8:00 Friday Night Dinner/Parks & Rec
    8:30 1600 Penn/Parks & Rec
    9:00 Harry’s Law
    10:00 County

    8:00 Dateline
    9:00 Grimm
    10:00 New Drama

  • Beavis

    Good on SVU going up, but they should have Belzer on the show more.

  • Dan S

    And to think Harry’s Law brought a much bigger audience with a higher demo than what Rock Center brings to Wed nites at 9pm. In all likelihood RC will either move to MSNBC or be cancelled outright. I see Betty Whites show brings in over 6M but alas skews too old for the all important 18-49 demo. At 1.6 maybe NBC will cut her some slack & bring the show back even as spackle

  • Asa

    Go SVU! Moving on UP! To the East SIDE! To the renewal department, on NBC!
