    I agree with everyone saying “Poor The L.A. Complex.” The show honestly is very good. So much better than 90210 and Gossip Girl.. Very refreshing and different from other “teen” shows. It’s a shame that the CW probably won’t air the upcoming new episodes after the 6th episode.

  • Networkman

    Private Practice should come back for final 13 episodes. ABC should use it in place of DWTS:Result show when that has finish its cycle. It should run from January until the end of March.

    How can some people say PP is dead when it got 2 and higher in 19 episodes, and only in two episodes it fell bellow 2!!!!!!!!! Are some people really that dumb?

  • Valerie

    And btw, Body of Poof never got 2.2 with DWTS lead in!!PP got!!

  • Yannis

    LA Complex has been viewed already. The CW needs to air Brand new never been seen episodes in Sync with Much Music in Canada when the show returns in July. Then they’ll find out the real value in ratings. TIP: Want to watch the remaining pilot episodes…go to pirate bay.

    @Dennis
    Private Practice should get cancelled, those results are terribel. Body of Proof was doin’ 9.5-11 million and at least 2.2 with such a huge lead in.

    If you have to make up numbers, you probably don’t have a good point. Body of Proof only reached 2.2 once this season, for its premiere, and followed a DWTS that did 20% better.

    Overall, Body of Proof averaged 1.9 following DWTS shows which averaged 2.8; Private Practice is averaging 1.9 following DWTS shows averaging 2.4.

    Obviously, Private Practice was hurt by both Unforgettable and The Voice having finales. That doesn’t change the fact that it has outperformed Body of Proof significantly over the course of the season (2.3 vs 1.7).

    To be fair, The L.A Complex has been aired in Canada, and we all could see the episodes online. This episode’s are kinda repeats…

  • John A

    Lol i love how PP has a bad week and people say its dead and BOP had better ratings when it didnt. PP will get a 13 ep final season.

  • Red Jane

    LA Complex is competing with The Firm for the worst new show performance this year…

  • kylie

    NBC is Really sucessful on Mon ,Tues they really need to fix they Wed, Thurs, Fri line up!

  • Valerie

    PP season high(minus premiere and crossover) 2.7. Body of Proof high 2.2(premiere), minus premiere 2.0. Also PP did better than ScandAl does in post GA timeslot. Scandal yet has to do better than PP did here.

    Pretty smart trap to catch me in a Catch 22. After I post: “All this is getting too deep, and I come to the site because it is a fun site, I come to this site for funsies and entertainment. As such I refuse to get into your mean girl games, and from now on will only be involved in entertainment and funsies.” (the mean girl statement was directed at other posters, not you Bill)

    You post a challenge to me to go back in the deep end. So either I keep to my post of keeping it funsies and it looks like I will not back up earlier post, or I dive back in the deep end and not back up my later post. Catch 22. Well played Bill Gorman! (This is a compliment)

    Bill I feel like I have be playing chess with a master and am boxed in, I know it is a losing cause but rather than concede checkmate I try one more thing. So now, I will try to stay in the middle and I know I will look stupid. I will write this quickly so please excuse the mistakes.

    I stick with my statement to listen to the Analyst Calls, it doesn’t take long and they are very interesting. Or one could read an Analyst Report, reading some Analyst Repots would be the quickest way to get a good understanding of the business and there are lots of interesting things in them, if you are interested in that sort of thing. If one is interested in the business side, and the details behind them, I recommend reading the Analyst Reports if one has access to them. I cannot post the Analyst reports online because that is illegal, but if one has access to them I recommend reading them.

    And I made a mistake by saying All in this statement: “Actually if the NBC executives do not turn it around by this time next year, they will all be fired; they are close to being fired right now.“ I should have said Some instead of All.

    So I need to wrap this up to stay in the middle So: Some executives are in trouble because although NBC ratings and revenue is up vs. last year (even when one doesn’t consider the Super bowl), the problem is that the network lost a lot of money and had huge negative cash flow. It seems a couple executives bet the farm (and when you do this you bet your job) on a couple of projects or shows that didn’t pan out. (think of huge amount of money spent and lost on Smash), And due to these projects the network had huge negative cash flow. It wasn’t the total number of bad decisions; it was the huge monetary loss because of a few decisions. There have already been checks and balances put in place to make sure this will not happen again. The purpose of any business is to make money, and Comcast is making a lot of money overall but losing huge at NBC. All the executives at NBC are not in trouble, just a couple executives bet the farm (and when you do this you bet your job) on a couple of projects. Some executive will have to pay for this, even if it isn’t the right person and a scapegoat is found. NBC is very lucky The Voice did so well or the negative cash flow would even be larger

    Well, I certainly made a fool of myself trying to stay in the middle. Even as I am writing this I realize I should have stuck to my: I come to this site for funsies and entertainment, and from now on will only be involved in entertainment and funsies. I can imagine Bill reading this and laughing saying dance monkey dance.

    Bravo, well played Bill Gorman. Bill I surely do not want to match wits with you. And Bill I never want to play poker with you, I have a feeling you are one of those people who comes to the table with a big smile and says you’re not real good at this poker thing, and at the end of the day goes home with my car and my house. (This is a compliment)

    @ Bill Gorman
    Hopefully my last post came off as a compliment to you. It was intended to be a compliment to you. I like this site, and I like all your comments. Tvbythenumbers is a great, fun and entertaining site.

    Kudos to you Bill Gorman

    Then “some executive” probably shouldn’t have programmed NBC like they were programming Logo.

    Though good luck finding a scapegoat over there that hasn’t been fired yet!

  • Riff Rafferty

    As others have noted, the folks Comcast put into NBC were too late to have any input into choosing this season’s shows, at most they had some scheduling flexibility during the season.

    Smash (brought over from Showtime) – all Greenblatt
    The Playboy Club (trapped in development hell for who remembers how long) – all Salke
    Awake (bought on spec) – all both of them

    She inherited everything else, so you can’t blame her for anything save for the two 20th bombs (and even then, only tangibly). He, OTOH, was heavily involved in all the new shows (to the point of being way too involved in some things) and, although he came in in the middle of development (past the pitch/script stage), he picked the pilots, he picked the shows. There you go. Some of the blame can go to the previous administration, some of the blame can go to their D-Girls, some of it can go to their marketing team (yikes), and some of it can go to him. There are plenty of places it can be spread.

    Am I saying they should be fired right now? No, I believe they should be given another year, maybe two, to turn things around. But I don’t believe he should be allowed to fire anybody else, because he isn’t operating in Comcast’s best interests there. And I’d appreciate if his agenda could be contained in the places where it most makes logical sense to be (i.e. a show about Broadway) than in, you know, every single program on the entire network. I’m Irish but if I were running NBC that doesn’t mean I’d be filling it up with a dozen “Blue Bloods” or “Grounded for Lifes.”

    Nonsense italicized for emphasis.
