    Go ABC, beat NBC for the season

  • OMG

    If ABC can win NBC for the season, it will really be well-deserved. Not that it matters, since we all know ABC is the actual winner since it is on its own unlike NBC with football and Superbowl and the huge post-Superbowl effect with ratings in The Voice.

    Who at the “networks” is making the decision that a TV series is renewed or cancelled? They say it is due to ratings based on the number of viewers watching these shows. No one has asked me what I watch and what I like or don’t like. I vision of bunch of monkeys in front of a tv monitor with a panel of buttons layed out on a desk. Every 60 seconds a TV show is flashed on the screen and the monkeys go crazy hitting the buttons in a frenzy. At the end of 60 seconds a tally is taken from this and a TV show bites the dust. Of course the monkeys could be replaced by a bunch of network executives with the same effect.
