    who watches ncis? I don’t know one person that watches that show?

  • KevinSW

    @Michael I know…but how rare is it that….a repeat beats the Original airing in total viewers…it’s just really funny to even imagine in any way hahaha.

  • Doris

    Good for Private Practice. It should be a shoe in for a full season renewal now!

  • Bee

    this spring man. this freakin’ spring. there’s normal declines and then there’s this year’s declines. ridiculous. anyway..

    yay glee! people can go DIE GLEE DIE all they want. but hello? it’s still the #1 scripted show on FOX! and is in the most DST-effected hour, has no lead-in, and brings in money from various things. they’ll have to cancel everything else first. it is disappointing though that as graduation nears, there’s no spike in numbers.

    new girl’s ratings are a mystery. one week it’s beating glee by 0.3 and the next it’s 0.3 behind. and there’s no special competition or bad repeat schedule. college finals week? lol.

    i WOULD say cougar town is dead, but the producer/creator is extremely confident lately. i know trusting that stuff is not good, but he’s not the “oh our show is awesome and will survive if we believe!” type others are. i would be so overjoyed if it returned, esp. after ABC kept pushing it back and then cut the season order. all it needs is a decent, compatible lead-in and it would go back to pulling low 2.0s at least. it can do 1.3-1.8 all on its own in the worst spring ever, lead-in or no lead-in, and normal competition or not.

    LMS is suffering from such a crappy schedule. idk why it premiered in about mid-october and yet, aired 11 damn episodes in the fall. wtf? there were only 3 episodes in all of march and april. but it’s ABC so bad scheduling is natural.

    YAY PRIVATE PRACTICE! even in a DEATHLY spring and a big timeslot move right before the end of the season, it’s pulling the same numbers it did in its last post-grey’s eps and now winning its timeslot! i’m expecting being against the voice’s finale next week to hurt it, but hopefully it manages to stay above 1.8. i’m guessing the 13-episode final season thing is just technical talk. it’ll be renewed and if it’s still pulling decent numbers, it’ll get a full season and be a contender for a 7th season. if the numbers are weak, it may or may not get extra eps, but will hopefully get a final season announcement.

    NCIS: LA was lucky to have the crossover. otherwise it would’ve been around 2.4 like last week.

    Private Practice pretty much sealed its renewal last night. i doubt how it does next week against The Voice finale will have any impact and the week after is ABC’s upfronts. It will definitely be the show’s last season too. The only question is how many episodes. 13, 18, or 22?

    @ Robert Seidman

    Thank You. I like reading the prediction polls and seeing how they stack up to the results. It is major Fun for me.
    So any polls you do will be most appreciated.

    I am really curious on how The Voice will do in its finale; I have to say I find it interesting the way the ratings for it have been jumping around. I don’t have a clue why The Voice ratings do this, but it is interesting.

    I am also interested to see how America’s Got Talent Do with Howard Stern over the course of a few months, will it start out strong and fade like The Voice, American Idol and The X Factor? Fun Stuff

    Thank You

    [Glee is] still the #1 scripted show on FOX!

    Which says a lot more about FOX than Glee right now.

    Regardless, there is basically no chance it won’t be renewed for next year.

  • gregg

    Dont understand the reason why people like the voice. the celebrities outshine the contestants. its also boring.,. Its no wonder the ratings are getting worse everyrtime, they dont offer an audience much

  • gregg

    Robb, i think it will be 22, dont ask me why, but its still a performer. i havealways liked PP better than GA

  • John A

    Stop exaggerating 90210 isnt doing that great anymore. It wont be long till it starts getting 0.5

  • Ben Thompson

    Private Practice just secured its renewal last night. Have to give it props for doing decently on Tuesdays. Honestly LMS, HE, and CT should all just go.

    NBC had a decent night. As did CBS

    Well at least NG adjusted up. Surprised its fallen this much considering its getting much better.

    90210 is now at Gossip Girl levels.

  • ACR

    What happened to New Girl this week? I don’t get its ratings…
    The show gets better week after week, it has improved sooo much since earlier episodes.
    Definitely my favorite comedy along with Parks. Hope it does better next week

  • H5O Fan

    Seriously I have had a mini stroke, for years I have followed the verses of Rob & Bill in the TV Bible, and have followed it, and this follower is amazed and pissed, that your only answer today was to a poster who asked what the ratings would be for TV and Smash in the next two weeks. Sorry did you look at today’s post (OMG thank’s to Holly for being there) and get it that the posters following your way are getting killed.

  • kaslad

    1.3 is really bad rating, but Cougar Town will be renewed. No doubt. In fact, LMS is in much more dangerous position than CT.

  • Horrible

    who watches ncis? I don’t know one person that watches that show?

    Ask around and you will be surprised idiot.

  • Horrible

    New Girl is a loser these days, much more worried about New Girl than LMS at least LMS puts up decent viewership with a super loser like Cougar Town attached to it bringing its ratings down.

  • TJ

    Cougar Town:

    @VDOOZER scale of 1-10 how confident are you that it’s coming back?

    – 9.7

    @VDOOZER Is that genuine confidence or “If I say it, maybe it will happen” confidence? I hope it comes back, it’s the best comedy on TV.

    – Genuine. I’m genuine. Do people really think I just sit at home, wait, and I know nothing about what’s going on? Weird.

  • Jenny

    @H5O Fan
    I was asking for a poll for everyone to participate in.

    Predicting The Voice Finale will be major fun because there are so many variables at play. Like Justin Bieber is scheduled to appear. How big of draw will that be? Will Bieber fever mean great ratings on TV? The judges have produced hit songs, so if they sing how will that affect the ratings? How many people will tune in just to see who won? And many more variables.

    Fun Stuff

    Thank You

    This is just my opinion but surely Smash would do around the same without The Voice lead-in since it’s found an audience and ratings between 1.8-2.2 usually, which is much lower than The Voice lead-in, so wouldn’t it rate around the same when The Voice goes off the air and Smash airs without it.

    Glee has already been renewed!
