    I’m always amazed at Big Bang’s repeat ratings. Most of NBC’s comedies would kill to get that in the fall or spring.

  • The Original J

    I wonder if Fox is rethinking the “cancal Terra Nova, renew Touch” decision.

  • The Original J


    Oh, how I miss you, edit button.

    I wonder if Fox is rethinking the “cancal Terra Nova, renew Touch” decision.

    Doubtful. It’s not like cancelling Touch and bringing back Terra Nova is a realistic option at this point.

    Pleased to read Duets tanked. We are saturated with dumb singing shows. ENOUGH ALREADY. Hire some writers and ween off of reality.

  • Sam

    I can see why Duets is not a smash, most people are probably as confused as I am over the ratings (grading) for the contestants on Duets. The partners for John Legend and Robin Thicke are the worst of the bunch yet they rank at the top or middle. It just seems rigged.

  • Joseph

    @Sam ,
    We are not alone at being lost at what is going on with Duets ,
    I tried to watch Duet and heard some nice voices but like many others had no clue what was going on.
    BTW , Gratz to RULES for being the Second highest rated show of the night !

    @The Original J

    Considering renewing Touch is a lot less risky than renewing Terra Nova, I would say no.

    Reasons are on the Fringe/Touch topic elsewhere on here.

  • Ultima

    ENOUGH ALREADY. Hire some writers and ween off of reality.

    The 70s are long gone and aren’t coming back…

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    I can predict the future. :mrgreen:

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    Rookie Blue renewed for a fourth season. Sorry

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    OMG sorry I hit the submit comment button TWICE by accident.

    I tried to watch Duets, that has to be the worst singing show anyone has attempted. It took them 20 minutes just to explain what was happening and i still didn’t get the jest.

    I only watch a couple of them sing if that’s what you want to call what they did. The song choices sucked and Robin Thick, please. I was out about 45 minutes in, never to return.

  • Daniel Quintanilla

    “Breaking Pointe” should change its’ name to “Pointe Three” cuz that’s the highest rating it’s ever gonna get.

  • Bumfuzzled

    Ultima- The 70’s? Really? Gotta love TV Land!

    I suggest you may want to consider tuning in to the Department of Transportation traffic cameras or tune in to your local weather radar. They each have a better plot and more excitement than you’ll get from watching watching Duets.

    I’m sure CBS will finally jump on the singing sensation bandwagon. Better yet just start a network where all they do is broadcast singing competition 24/7/365.

  • Ultima

    The 70?s? Really?

    I was snarking on your delusional fantasy that scripted programming will (or can) replace reality.

    I have no opinion on the quality of Duets, but it’s ridiculous to think that a possible alternative is new scritped programming.

  • Verus

    Can´t believe they renewed Touch this is just horrible ratings.

  • MattG

    Well… I can’t say I’m surprised about the TOUCH ratings.

  • NJ Viewer

    Geez. Even a ROE repeat got better ratings than shows on the other networks, and CBS is canceling it? Sometimes I wonder about the shows on CBS. Not all of them are great, but they all seem to pull in the ratings somehow. I wonder how some of those programs would rate if they aired on NBC or ABC instead.

  • Bumfuzzled

    Ultima- I guess the viewers will ULTIMAtely decide. Although you are probably not a professional, I appreciate the diagnosis. Life is good when you’re delusional. I better take my meds!
