    LOL Grey’s is going to crash bad and Scandal will suffer. Rhimes deserves it with her lies. Ha All her shows are a mess and at the death’s doorstep. Her days of cash cow for abc is about to end.

    Modern Family<3 I hope the standoff gets resolved soon!

  • John A

    I think Revenge will start strong in its new slot at a 3.3 and drop to mid 2.s for the rest of the season. I hope it gets better as the last few episodes were a bit dull.

  • John A

    How can Grey’s crash and burn? Its in its 9th season and Scandal was lucky to get a 2nd season cos of Grey’s. It wouldve flopped worse than it did.

  • Karan

    It’s known Scandal was going to come back the ratings are awful but because of Shonda’s name.

    I’m talking about the fact everyone thinks Grey’s will get to 10 only because they signed a few to 10. Not likely. It’s been suffering a slow death for a long time now but demos were above average. I don’t see it continuing.

  • Karan

    PP is over and the last. Kate wants to leave.

  • Match

    ABC’s Sunday line up is the best. I will be happy if 666 Park Avenue gets the ratings Revenge got this season. And quit frankly there isn’t much competition except football when it’s off the air ABC will own Sunday.

    About Last Resort i don’t know, the show looks solid but that time slot and the competition makes a problem. I still think it should have been placed on Tuesday and in it’s place Zero Hour. Tuesday is such a week day, the competition is week and i think it would have done pretty solid.

    Nashville looks solid i really hope i does well, and thanks to Revenge for breaking the curse because so many shows failed miserably on that time slot.

  • CrimTV


    I see 666 Park Avenue starting to more than a 3.1, last season Pan Am started at a 3.8 was it? Now we know how that turned out but with all the hype 666 can get more than a 3.1!

  • CrimTV


    Grey’s ratings aren’t bad enough to not get a 10th season, even if the shows ratings plummet this season they owe it to the show to give them a final 10th season.

  • Kissan

    I seriously cannot wait for the return of OUAT and Revenge(can’t live without em) and also Apt. 23, MF, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and I’m also gonna try all the new shows. Nashville and 666 Park Avenue both look like they’re gonna be huge hits, Last Resort looks good but in the Thursday at 8 time slot, and goin against TBBT and 2 and a half men season premieres it looks like it’s gonna be tough. Nashville is in a good time slot and it looks like it’s also gonna have a good lead in(1 hr MF) and 666 Park Av. looks really good in that strong Sunday lineup.

    Predictions for new show premieres

    666 Park Avenue-3.0

    The Neighbors-3.2


    Last Resort-2.4

    Malibu Country-2.0

  • Survivor Fan

    @ Crim TV

    OUAT premiered to a 4.0 last year. I could be wrong on 666, but I just do not see as strong of a fall overall as last year’s. Last year’s spring declines were much sharper than normal.

  • Mark

    Premiere Ratings Guesses:

    The Neighbors – 3.0
    Nashville – 3.4
    Last Resort – 2.5
    666 Park Avenue – 3.1

  • ChrisA

    My ABC schedule:
    Sundays: OUAT, Revenge
    Tuesdays: Happy Endings
    Wednesday: Modern Family
    Thursday: Last Resort
    Friday: Malibu Country

    Got some catching up on my DVR. Just about to finish seeing Terra Nova which is sad that it got cancelled. Finished seeing Grimm Im addicted to this show. Sucks that Grimm and Nikita are going to aired at the same time slot this 2012-2013 season. So glad DVR exist.

  • ChrisA

    I wish Missing was on that schedule. Last Resort looks like a great show but I have a feeling it’s gonna suffer just like Missing which was a amazing show. That time slot is a curse and it’s going to face a big competition. Charlie’s Angels (cancelled), Missing (cancelled which it didn’t deserve), and now Last Resort is going to face the same situation. Would have been better if it was airing at a 10pm slot. I love sci-fi but 666 Park Avenue just dosent look interesting. They should have brought back “V” instead if they wanted a great sci-fi show.
