    Fashion Star should get renewed. A 1.5 is decent for NBC. It should get moved to an earlier time next spring.

  • Lane

    I still think Raising Hope will get four seasons. I could see Raising Hope on TBS

  • Leondre

    Is that a season high for The Biggest Loser in total viewers

  • Petar

    Man The Biggest Loser look so good!

  • disney rocks

    TBL may never end if it keeps up those ratings on NBC. It might even top The Office for the third highest-rated NBC show of the week- behind both of The Voice episodes.

    With LMS a rerun next week, hopefully ABC airs a DWTS recap. Cougar Town needs to GO.

  • The Mike Factor

    Minor edit: TBL was not from 8-10, The Voice Results were at 9.

  • Survivor Fan

    Error: TBL not 8-10

  • disney rocks

    Who would’ve though TBL on NBC would only be behind Glee .1 a year ago, plus beat it in total views!

    Thats its highest viewership since the Fall season finale which has 7.1 million.

    Its one of the few shows that does just as good or better in the spring than the fall.

    Its rating looks great!

  • Survivor Fan

    Does anyone have stats on whether unscripted or scripted has a higher average (for weeknights)?

  • Mon

    NCIS was great last night. It’s the best they have this season.

    I saw one-minute preview of H50/NCIS: LA crossover. That event better crack a 3.0.

    I hope NBC moves Grimm to Tuesdays at 10 next season for extra exposure. Though I’ll be fine with it if it stays on Fridays.

  • disney rocks

    TBL was just one hour. I’m thinking NBC should cut it to one hour permanently next season. It as one hour seems to be working.

  • Ryan

    ABC should just cancel any sitcom that’s not The Middle, Modern Family or Suburgatory. I love CT, but it’s ratings have been horrible and they’re more than a full season away from syndication. Happy Endings does terrible without a MF lead in. It’s too soon to tell about Apt. 23 though. Next season, move Suburgatory to 9:30 and let it flourish. Air a new single-camera sitcom between Middle and MF.

    8:00pm – The Middle
    8:30pm – NEW COMEDY
    9:00pm – Modern Family
    9:30pm – Suburgatory
    10:00pm – Revenge

  • Mon

    Tuesday because both ABC and CBS are week there unless a veteran drama moves there. Mondays while H50 and Castle are far from being juggernauts are both procedurals and Grimm would have no chance of growing there

  • Ryan

    @DisneyRocks –

    Yep, and they should move it to Wednesdays where they need it more. Move their Thursday comedies (whichever survive) to Tuesday nights from 9-11 behind a Voice results show.

  • Michael

    LA Complex isn’t going to fare any better than Ringer, IMO. I’m predicting a 0.5 for the opener.

  • Wayne


    Happy Endings is (thankfully) going nowhere! :)

  • Ice Mountain

    Why the hell was Raising Hope renewed with those retarded ratings?

    Reba can’t get here fast enough for LMS. That loser CT killed all of the momentum LMS had.

  • Ice Mountain

    @ Ryan

    I like that idea of the comedies moving behind The Voice from 9-11pm.

    Fashion Star is a mid-season option.

  • Anthony

    I think this means that NBC actually won the night (it was tied with Fox in the prelims) since Fox had a show adjusted down and NBC had one adjusted up.
