    Nikita repeating well past 2 weeks. Shark Tank repeat great too.

  • Oliver

    Interesting to see the Whitney (and, to a lesser extent, Community) ratings bump stick in finals.

    Wonder why they got a sudden boost over the week before (0.7/0.5 vs 0.5/0.4 in 18-49, 2.4m/1.4m vs 2.0m/1.2m in total viewers). Has NBC been promoting them?

  • Nick

    Fox should repeat Kitchen Nightmares on Fridays. It would be better than House.

  • Danimals

    I believe Nikita’s repeat beat out every other show on the CW for that week, but only for viewership, but in ratings it is tied with the other repeats. Its repeats better than when it is new, with other shows.

  • SJ

    Community is going to get absolutely killed in the fall. Whitney may have legs on the night, who knows…

  • Sid

    All I’m hoping for is that new viewers are a part of that audience share(especially in the coveted A18-49 demo).

  • disney rocks

    Community should be moved to Saturday nights at 8; Guys With Kids to Fridays at 8:30, SVU to Thursdays at 10, Rock Center With Brian Williams to Saturdays at 9, Dateline NBC to Wednesdays at 8:30, Movies occasionally on Wednesdays at 8:30

    CBS did a bad job scheduling, here’s what they should have done-


    7- 60 Minutes
    8- TAR; The Job
    9- Made In Jersey
    10- CSI: Miami (8 episodes; final season)/TGW (19 episodes; final season)




    8- CSI:NY (15 episodes; final season); TAR
    9- The Mentalist
    10- Blue Bloods

    CBS could have a great Friday night.

    NBC has four new sitcoms this fall. At least two of them will flop. So NBC held back two bubble sitcoms as back up. They’ll plug in Whitney and Community before October 19 rolls around.

    Same thing for ABC.

  • Nick

    @Disney Rocks
    The Good Wife needs 22 episodes for the magic 88 needed for syndication. I’d have canceled CSI:NY and put TGW there.

    ABC has two new fall sitcoms, not 4. I doubt both of them will fail, as Malibu Country will likely resound well with Last Man Standing’s audience, even though The Neighbors will fall flat on its face.

  • Nick

    Wait a sec. What returning bubble show does ABC have in stock? Last Man Standing would never survive in The Neighbors’s 9:30 slot. And it premieres at the same time as Malibu Country. I’m confused.
