There were no ratings adjustments among adults 18-49 ratings versus Thursday's preliminary ratings - though The Choice was adjusted up a tenth from the fast national ratings, we saw that adjustment early since Fox ordered special time zone adjusted fast nationals.

    Michael Hadley, “Why isn’t Person Of Interest available on iTunes?” is the billion dollar question. It is also not available on Amazon’s service. And is also not available to stream from CBS’s site.

    I would love if it were available but maybe by making it unavailable they are doing their best to force you to watch it on tv to ensure the core market has the largest audience possible. And maybe their profit margin is larger with DVD & BD and by making it available on iTunes they would be undercutting future sales of the season on discs. Its just a few guesses. If it makes you feel any better Citytv in Canada doesn’t have it available to stream either so it isn’t just CBS being mean.

    ” If it makes you feel any better Citytv in Canada doesn’t have it available to stream either so it isn’t just CBS being mean.”

    Decisions about how/where to make a show available are made by the producer (in POI’s case, Warner Brothers) and not the TV networks.

    Whitney is NBC’s top comedy repeater this week with 2.7 million while Community slid way behind with only 1.8 million on Friday.

    That’s amazing considering this is a new night during the summer probably with no promotion on a Friday. NBC is going to be okay this fall on Fridays with Whitney but with Community probably not.

    I’m actually really digging Breaking Pointe. The group of people the show follows for the most part are all very tv-friendly and easy to root for. Then again I’ve always had a thing for dance shows so that might be another reason why I like it.

    Now that Duets is preety much a failure – this will at least STOP all the networks to come up with another singing competition.

    The Voice
    and even at times; America’s Got Talent has singing.

    4 shows is more than enough and 3 of them expand on age groups – so everyone has a chance to audition on something. Noi more singing competitions PLEASE!!

    Saw Saving Hope and am not sure how well this one is going to do.. It should be noted that Rock center has not been rock solid in ratings and neither was Awake’s short run, so Thursday was not a strong day for NBC. Still .7 demo is not a great start.. Guess ED is missing Tom Welling about now…

    Saving Hope is interesting.. Sold with a gimmick and Micheal Shanks.. yet its Erica Durance that is the show.. and who would have thought from bubble gum Loise Lane to a performance and character that is compelling enough that I really don’t care about the gimmick.
    My advice…
    Hire someone who understands color balance because the the whole magic hour/ sepia thing bugs me.. And start cutting promos that focus on Durance’s Character.. OMG She is so much more interesting then anything on Greys Anatomy. Can you sell a show on a gimmick that has a built in expiration date and then let it go? Bring him back but with serious problems.. and let us watch her deal with that..
