    The Catalina is getting axed and LA Complex.. just sucks.

  • disney rocks

    Wish La Complex would have went down to a 0.0- I find it hard to believe that almost 300,000 people watch a rerun of it. Wish Cw would finally have a show hit 0.0. Nielsen’s messed up; probably almost no people watched that rerun

    Yay! A Last Man Standing repeat did within .2 of NCIS! I hope that carries into the regular season (:

  • disney rocks

    @Nick, it won’t

    I wish tvbythenumbers would offer a prize (Xbox 360, Playstation 3, or season 2 set of Game of Thrones) to the person who correctly predicts the first primetime broadcast network show (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CW) to get a 0.0 rating and a 0 share. I don’t think any show would get the coveted double 0 this summer. I predict one show on the CW will do the deed in summer 2013.

  • The End


    We know the CW is failing though, tvbythenumbers doesn’t need a contest to predict failure on a failing network.

    I blame the quality of the programming if anything, except a few shows it’s pretty dire.

    Time for them to focus on a wider audience instead of the young adults and women.

    Or move to Cable, whichever.

    Wow! CBS’ repeats don’t seem to be holding up like they used to. Maybe those folks that watch CBS no matter what, even if they saw it all before, have finally discovered that there are other channels out there …

    Most CBS viewers don’t have any lives. How else would you explain watching the same TAAHM, BBT, NCIS or CSI episode that has already aired twice before in the past year? Maybe they are just starting to get out a little more? Perhaps they just discovered they want more out of life than repeated viewings of George Eads and Mark Harmon? Yeah, right!!!!

    Dudes , you need to compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges ,,
    Oranges = New Programming.
    NBC came out on top but those ratings did not come cheap.
    Fox had great numbers especially when you consider the cost to produce MaterChef & Hell’s Kitchen.
    Apples – Repeats
    CBS as always had very respectable demo and viewer numbers.
    ABC failed last nigt in viewers but did hold its own in the demo.

  • Jeff

    America’s Got Talent is new, and probably more expensive to produce than the Fox Chef Shows, but I doubt its as expensive as X Factor or American Idol. One of the network’s few profit makers.

    As to the Olympic Trials, it just helps amortize the high cost for the Olympics, and hopefully (in their eyes) boost interest for the main event.
