    It is ridiculous that Castle did better than Hawaii Five-O! Monday’s Hawaii Five-O episode was just spectacular!!!!! It was one of the best episodes ever!!!!! Anyone who watched Castle instead of Hawaii Five O missed out big time!!!!!

    @ Sophia

    Why are you calling SMG4E an idiot? Sure, Ringer’s renewal chances are slim to none but why do you have to insult her intelligence?

    Ringer might (and this is a VERY big might) come back for 13 episodes to wrap up the Bridget vs. Siobhan feud. All CW shows (except VD) are doing really bad, so you never know what the network will decide.

  • SMG4E

    @Sophia, it’s funny how you only talk about Ringer but say nothing of the other shows. Pathetic bitch.

    @Andy, Ringer is amazing. Nikita was okay, I guess. Dixie SUCKED.

  • Charmed

    Come on, GG got adjusted down in total viewers. Next season will be even worse, a show rarely gets it’s ratings back.

  • Pete

    lol so much for HOD adjusting up as many were saying earlier.

  • Gustavo

    0,4 and barely 830000 viewers.I never expected to see GG getting so low.

  • MoHasanie

    Better for 2BG. Haven’t watched TAAHM yet.

    I was expecting Bones to be adjusted up from the half hours. A 1.9 is horrible. House is doing poorly. If it doesn’t rise next week, then the finale might now even get 2.5.

    I really don’t get why NBC renewed Smash with such horrible retention.

    Castle still did good.

  • SMG4E

    @Clarke, thank you. That’s how I’m looking at it. I’m not saying that Ringer is SURE to be renewed, but the fact that it has huge stars in it and it ended with a cliffhanger, I think it’ll get the chance to wrap things up. Because all the other CW shows are doing just as bad. Actually, Nikita is doing worse!

  • Gustavo

    HoD needs a better lead-in.

  • Sports Preemption

    Anyone got the updated half hours for 2BG?

    And after the morning’s debacle, nice to see Castle still edge out H50 and win the timeslot.

  • Andy


    You just won an enemy. The Dixie fans. lol

    I don’t really care what people say, and your opinion is less than important to me, but Ringer being the worst show of the network (in ratings, criticism and storylines) is a truth you can’t refuse. Hart of Dixie is dumb sometimes, but it doesn’t suck as much as SMG’s pathetic show does.

  • Michigan_Jeff

    Castle won the one week battle, but H50 won the 2011-2012 war. In the end it does not matter — they are both good shows and both will be back next season.

    Despite all the fighting between the two fan bases, I suspect many are fans of both shows. As such, ABC should be smart and move Castle to another night – it will boost its ratings.

  • Petar

    What does NBC do with Smash now?

    probably they will put it in thursday at 10. If CBS go with 2 hours sitcoms will be VS PoI. Will be fast death. But the show is dead anyways.

  • A.

    Anyways, no sense in arguing over GG.
    The final season IS happening, according to the writers.

  • Bee

    the only saving smash know is its quality. assuming it premieres in the fall after the voice, it’ll open around mid 2.0s. it’s gonna have to really become a great show and work out its flaws if it’s to last for a third year.

    there’s no reason to not renew hart of dixie now. the show decided to become a fighter at the perfect time. but if the new CW medical drama first cut is good like they say, hart of dixie should be held of mid-season. fall is for the biggest and best shows as this season taught us.

  • Jenny

    @ MoHasanie ” I really don’t get why NBC renewed Smash with such horrible retention. ”

    I agree, since NBC has already renewed Smash, what do they do with it next year. Its ratings have been dropping all year and now a 1.8 rating after one of the highest rated tv show The Voice, What do they do with it next year ?
    Can NBC afford to waste a great lead in like The Voice?

    I just don’t understand NBC, everthing the touch goes bad.

  • Mikey


    to use your lingo LOL at those people YOU who thought HOD would be adjusted down!

  • WB

    The CW needs to consider lots of changes, and it must take in action unless things would get worse than already is! The CW needs a new ‘feel’, a new image, and a new PROMOTION TEAM!

    For the 2012-2013, I think every show should be renewed, with an expanded schedule like a REAL MAJOR BROADCASTING NETWORK supposed to (SUNDAY, MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, AND SATURDAY). It’s sad when a major network is getting cable numbers and when some cable channels are actually beating The CW (hint-hint ABC FAMILY!) ^ That’s just my imagination folks. I know it’d never happen!


    NIKITA, RINGER, and L.A COMPLEX=cancelled.

  • Geordiegirl1967

    I really cannot believe that it looks likely GG will be renewed while Nikita likely to be cancelled. Nikita gets 50% more in total audience and a similar demo but on a Friday night. Surely a 0.4 and way under 1m viewers is easily cancellation territory?

    smash now*
