    I agree. But better than that, give it “America’s Got Talent” as a lead-in for the entire summer–and no matter what the ratings start out as, leave it there. As I said last night, if it were to retain just half of its lead-in, that’d be around five million viewers, most of whom were probably new to the show. That, combined with some traditional advertising and perhaps giving away sets of the show for free, would almost certainly boost viewership come fall.

    “Scandal has been up against repeats each week it aired so far. This thursday will be the first time it is up against a non repeat of the Mentalist. It will surely drop”

    Not the premiere. The Mentalist was new that night.

  • Kat

    Didn’t they already up The LA Complex’s season order? I bet they’re regretting that decision now…

    American Ninja Warrior and Grimm are getting the AGT lead-ins; I don’t think Parenthood is even on NBC’s summer schedule.

  • Jake

    Wow, poor LA Complex is being “Hellcat’d”. They have moved a new show into a timeslot of a failed show. Just like they did to Hellcats last year when the ratings tanked. How is that fair to a new show?

  • Ultima

    They have moved a new show into a timeslot of a failed show.

    Yeah, they should cancel the successful shows, so that they can put new shows into those timeslots…

  • Jake

    Why not? They did that with Nikita going into Smallville’s timeslot :) Look how well that is working out for them.

    Tuesday evening has been the death timeslot for 2 years straight for the CW. I think they have killed off at least 4 shows from the 9-10 timeslot.

  • Jenny

    Wow PP really did great! Maybe people didn’t know about the move last week.
    Now I’m starting to think if it keep going like this, next year might not be the last season ;)
    Go PP!!

  • gustavo

    Ouch 90210!.

  • ABC hater

    PP delivered very solid numbers. I’m impressed!

    Glee is totally fading. High 1.0’s at the end of the next season. LOL

  • Mickey 1.0

    Didn’t they already up The LA Complex’s season order? I bet they’re regretting that decision now…

    LAC is a Canadian show, and the Canadian network (Much Music) ordered a second season because it did well in Canada.

    The CW had nothing to do with that decision, and they don’t have to buy the second season.

  • Julia

    They should announce next season as the final Season for 90210. I bet it will do even worse than Gossip Girl this year

  • Justin121

    Big jump for Private Practice from last week.

    Maybe the “ppl didn’t know it moved” excuse is true this time :D

    So ABC Tuesdays in the Fall: LMS, New comedy, DWTSR, PP.

    Hellcats got really screwed when moved. Why did they do it, anyway?

    Nikita was getting below average behind a stronger Vamp Diaries. A renewal to a Friday slot was natural.

  • ber

    I am very happy for PP, it really deserves good results and it sort of shows that the show is not lead-in dependent as everyone made it to be, at least not after 5 years! Also, I think this time the “people did not know it was moved” excuse turned out to be true, shame on ABC for not having promoted the move properly. It appears to have been worked out now, I just want it to hold now.

    However, this creates an interesting situation for ABC, because with these ratings, PP should be renewed for an entire season rather than just midseason. Yet, it will have no room on Tuesdays next year when ABC creates a 2 hour comedy block there (which will happen, I am pretty sure at this point). So either it comes back only midseason to takeover the 10pm hour spot left vacant by DWTS Results Show or it will have to move yet again (which will make it bleed again at least in the start), most likely to 8pm Thursdays. I am not sure PP would be fit for the 8pm audience, I think 10pm is a much better match, but I don’t see where else it could go…

    Schedule (3 new Comedies, 3 New Dramas):
    8 DWTS
    9 DWTS
    10 New Drama

    8 Happy Endings
    8h30 New Comedy or Cougar Town if it is renewed for syndication
    9h Bitch 23
    9h30 New Comedy
    10h DWTS Results Show

    8h In The Middle
    8h30 Suburgatory
    9h Modern Family
    9h30 New Comedy
    10h Revenge

    8h Private Practice
    9h Grey’s Anatomy
    10h Scandal or New Drama

    8h Last Man Standing
    8h30 New Comedy
    9h Unscripted
    10h Unscripted

    8h Once Upon a Time
    9h New Drama
    10h Castle

    I find no room in ABC’s schedule for GCB honestly. Nothing against the show, just don’t know where it would go. As for the Friday comedies, I know a lot of people don’t believe this will happen but I think ABC will be really idiot if it insists on mixing young-adult themed comedies with family comedies. Tuesdays should be the place for young-adult themed comedies, whereas Wednesdays should be the place for family oriented comedies. There is however no further room on Wednesdays (I am sure ABC intends to premiere something new out of Modern Family) so Fridays will have to do, unless they go nuts and decide to challenge The Big Bang Theory face to face, which would be madness!

    “Hellcats got really screwed when moved. Why did they do it, anyway?”

    To pair it with OTH which they thought would be a better fit and the wanted to use Top Model to launch Shedding for The Wedding.

  • SteveO

    Glee might be “fading,” but it’s still Fox’s highest rated show not named Idol. Calm yoself.

  • PB

    Funny how LA complex got worse ratings then Ringer in that time slot, looks like it is just a bad place to be after 90210.

  • pete5125

    CW has female skewed shows on a night that has very popular female skewed shows on other networks, Fox back when NBC had Must See TV made an Urban Night with Martin/Livin Single/NY Undercover that did reasonably well…even UPN did well with urban Comedy’s on Mon, their are only so many eyeballs to go around when ABC family beats you in total viewers you have to try another strategy, Mon/Tue are tough they should of started the season with Nikita/Supernatural/TSC/VD, some combination of those shows to lead the week, counter programing and higher rated shows lead the week giving you more eyeballs to advertise the end the week.


  • Mike

    Glee is in more trouble than people think….it can’t move up at this point.

  • Ben

    I am very impressed by the amount of viewers for CBS, considering that they were All reruns, while many of the other programs on the other channels were first run episodes. Especially for NCIS in the 8 to 9 PM time slot. Even Unforgettable had good ratings for a repeat episode.
    Can you imagine what the ratings would have been for CBS, if they were all first run episodes?
