    If HoD is getting 0.6’s right now, what will it get after the season decline? 0.4’s, 0.3’s? CW WON’T renew it!

  • Ultima

    I was expecting Bones to be adjusted up from the half hours.

    You can’t predict adjustments from half hour ratings…

    House is doing poorly. If it doesn’t rise next week, then the finale might now even get 2.5.

    Maybe, but remember that it will be airing against virtually nothing. CBS repeats, CW repeat, NBC summer reality, ABC Bachelorette.

  • Fred

    Smash is weak, even for a 10:00 PM show. NBC needs to try another show to follow the very profitable Voice next season. NBC must not be making much money on Smash. Maybe even losing.

    So TAAHM wins the night.

    What is with you and saying all this crap about HART OF DIXIE all the freakking time! WE GET IT, you don’t like DIXIE! I mean, why waste your time saying all this bs? It’s getting very annoying!! stfu THANKS!

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    @Fred I think NBC renewed Smash just to save face since they spent SO MUCH promoting it and it’s getting a 1.8?!

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    @WB I can say whatever I want, it’s MY opinion, I did NOT insult anyone! What is wrong with YOU?

  • CastleFan


    Last year’s season finale week Castle got a 3.3 coming out of a 5.0 for DWTS.

    This year Castle got a 2.4 coming out of a mere 2.7 for DWTS..

    The really interesting part is in the total viewers…

    Last year Castle had 12.9 million coming out of DWTS with 21.4 million

    This year Castle had a 12.4 million viewers coming out of just 16.3

    While there was a drop in the demo, there was very little change in the actual number of people watching.

    Hes just jealous because Nikita’s getting canceled. Hes probable never even seen an episode of HOD.

  • WB

    @ Jenny

    It’s the truth : ) and THANKS!

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    @Suzie I’ve never seen an episode of NIKITA, I don’t care about NIKITA.

  • Brandy

    Andy, GG will be renewed cause the cast is contracted, CW has Nikita, Secret Cirlce, Ringer, La Complex to worry about and cant afford to cancel 5_6 shows, its Cws signature/flagship show, first cw show to reach 100 episodes or more, CW will try to get a good syndication deal for it, the producers said two reccuring/series regular stars will be back next season, the writers wrote a season finale with”the biggest cliffhanger in Gg history that will change the show forever(cws not gonna let it go put like that), the producers were confident about a sixth season since early this year according to a interview,GG makes CW a lot of money through ad rates(one of the highest on the network),netflix, itunes, dvd sales,selling the show overseas,ect.It has 11million fb fan, does well in cws target audience of w18_34,has a big boost from dvr, has a high iWncome index, and brings buzz &publicity to CW(stars in movies, tabloid and fasion mags covers ect.)CW wont loose a lot of thier dwindling viewers by cancelling or by completley doing away with w18_34 demo.Also a GG writer tweeted GOSSip GIRL Season Six on Fri night. GG is one of the most exspensive CW shows to produce, but Nikita is too and Ringer with SMG $100,00 salary and all the promos.

  • WB


    You’re right you can, but you sound like a little annoying 9 year old! ITS UNNECESSARY! And there’s a damn thing wrong with me, it’s obviously YOU!

  • WB


    He always have something to say about DIXIE . Why show so much hatred towards this show? I mean, If you don’t watch it, stfu saying stuff ha.

  • eric

    castle fan you really are too much. you win one week out of the whole season by .1 and it was the finale no less. this is really nothing to be bragging about. you’re acting like you just conquered TBBT but i guess you gotta take your victories when you get them even if it is just this one time :)

  • Beth

    That’s a pretty substantial drop for GG from last week, despite HOD ratings staying the same. Maybe viewers didn’t like the Bart Bass Is Alive reveal? It was pretty stupid.

  • Castle YES

    Castle with a weaker lead, not expensive action scenes,, and no shirtless guys ,beats H50 !!!!!!!!
    It is called, GOOD ACTING !!!

  • W

    The Mentalist follows Person of Interest, a hit new drama! Both shows are doing well, as well as H50. Someone does not know what he is talking about. CBS is not going to move their shows around.

  • W

    @eric! I complete agree with you! Well said!
