    And I agree 100% about HotLatino4GayMarriage. He. could. be. the. most. annoying. poster. ever.

  • eric

    Also i apologize to the many many castle fans that are not obnoxious little trolls. My post was not directed towards you. We all know who the post was directed at don’t we?

    Castle was horrible last night. Why did it ale a whole year to get to that point. U think Beckett said something along those lines in the episode. What a pointless season

  • Maya

    Hawaii 50 2.3 is making Smash look better .

  • Beckstle

    Eric, I think Castlefan was simply pointing out that Castle is holding up better than it’s lead-in. DWTS had serious decline from last year, but Castle’s numbers dropped very little. It just shows that the Castle fan base is solid. It’s one thing when a show has a consistent, highly-rated lead-in, and to talk about its numbers, but Castle’s lead-ins tend to be over the place in the ratings. They’ve at times had to even BUILD UP from some horrible shows (that GAME SHOW for instance.) All things considered, the show’s ratings are pretty good – especially going into it’s 5th season.

    Fox Pilot Buzz Update

    It’s decision time at Fox. Net execs are hunkered in the scheduling room this afternoon finalizing pilot pickup decisions in preparation for Monday’s upfront presentation.

    The net is expected to pick up three or four comedies and at least three dramas.

    Comedy-wise, the heatseeker is still Universal TV’s untitled Mindy Kaling project, which seems bound for a companion slot with “New Girl” next season. “Ben Fox is My Manny,” a 20th Century Fox TV domestic comedy about a single mom who taps her brother to be an unconventional nanny, is seen as having a strong shot.

    Contenders for the remaining slot(s) are Sony Pictures TV’s “El Jefe,” about a guy from a wealthy family who winds up living with the family’s housekeeper; and two more from 20th TV: “Rebounding,” about a guy who finds solace after the death of his finance with his basketball buddies; and “The Goodwin Games,” about three adult siblings who reunite after their father’s death. A dark horse may be another 20th TV project, “Little Brother,” starring John Stamos and T.J. Miller as long-lost brothers, which has a lot of fans at the network, but there’s concern that it treads too much of the same ground as “Ned Fox.”

    On the drama side, the three best shots appear to be Kevin Williamson’s serial killer drama “Mastermind,” starring Kevin Bacon, from Warner Bros. TV; the untitled femme Mafia doctor vehicle from Sony Pictures TV and “Guilty,” starring Cuba Gooding Jr. as a disgraced lawyer trying to clear his name. A wildcard could be 20th TV’s spy drama from scribe Karyn Usher.

    A rep for Fox declined comment Tuesday afternoon. There’s no word yet on the timing of Fox’s pickup calls to producers.

    @W

    CBS is thinking about moving TM to Fridays that’s why they aired an episode on Friday like a month or so ago, that’s why I said that H-5-0 should be the one moving to Fridays.

    God Latino you are such a bore. Boring and stupid. Castle has won one night and it’s finale only reached a 2.4

    The facts are that most ten pm shows are struggling. Retention is irrelevant. Retentionistas are irrelevant too so I ignore all your posts.

    HFO is the number one ten pm drama for this season. It has moved up too from its place last year to this year in the countdown of viewership and it has most weeks been the top ten pm show on all nets – with about five exceptions for the year. This being one, when it was up against the finale of another very popular show.

    Castle has done good and I am glad for Castle that it won the night for it’s finale – because why shouldn’t a show do well on it’s finale night?

    HFO has such freaky haters and most of them have been calling it a failure all year when it was getting three’s to now so they are clearly plain idiots.

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    @Andy Why would I get banned just for discussing ratings on a ratings site. Boggles the mind, you’re the one insulting other posters, not me.

  • that’s unlike raven

    I really enjoyed Castle last night, I was glued to the TV the entire time, can’t wait for next season.

  • bluejays

    @Hotlatino – HFO has way more competition than the Mentalist which has little to challenge it and you should know as a regular of this site that retention means bleep all.

  • bluejays

    @Hot latino but you don’t discuss the ratings really, you just talk trash and make things up to suit your own view depending on which show you love or hate. You are really blinkered with your posts and hypocritical too.

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    @nluejays “I ignore all your posts.”

    You do? It doesn’t seem like you ignore my posts, it seems like you read every single one of them.

    Rumors have it,

    That since Smash has been falling in low ratings 1.8 and low viewership, and it had a prime time slot after the top rated TV show The Voice, and even though NBC spent major money on promotion and it still had low and falling ratings.
    The executives wanted to save face and their jobs so they renewed it.
    Now there are rumors that NBC is going to do another Southland deal and move Smash to TNT.

    NBC renewed Southland, and then moved it to TNT

  • Jenny

    I saw the rumor online. Has anybody else know naything about this?
    What is the NBC TNT connection?
    Is this common?

    The other problem is the domino effect for the CW. It cancels one show, others might go with it.

  • Holly

    @Jenny,

    NBC didn’t move Southland to TNT. They canceled it and TNT picked it up. It was a rare move, but since TNT is owned by the same company that owns WB Productions (which produced the show) and the last minute cancellation meant there were already 6 episodes made it was a relatively low-risk venture. Since Smash is produced by Universal Studios, it is very unlikely that TNT would pay to pick it up even if it were on-brand for them.
