    OUCH, LA Complex, ouch. Still up in total viewers though, but ouch.

  • Smoke That Sherm-Palladino

    The L.A. Complex being the biggest scripted drama ratings failure in network history somehow only makes me like the show MORE.

  • Jon Haven

    Maybe I can purchase a 30 second spot during the L.A. Complex. I have $20 somewhere around here..

  • elliottness

    NBC are some lucky bastards. They got the superbowl, 16 Sunday night football games and the Olympics. Without these events I’m sure they would be battling The CW for last place

  • Ricky

    I’m still waiting for a 0.0 on the CW.

  • Getmilk

    Ughh…LA Complex! You’re killing me. Love the show but too bad no one watches it. Hope Canada will still renew it despite CW’s ratings.

  • Nick

    @ elliotness

    The good thing is that CBS has the Super Bowl this year. They can put that promotion to good use.

  • Nick


    Me too.

  • salaciouscrumb

    18 SNF games.

  • Tom

    Hey, looking around absolutely everywhere and can’t find Canadian ratings for the 2nd season of The L.A. Complex, does anyone have the numbers for any of season twos 3 episodes??

  • panda22

    Ouch! @ LA Complex….the best show on tv no one watches!
    It’s gotten cricical praise from critics, and week after week here on TVBTN people say how great the show is, and it is!

    Martin Gero knows the subject matters and the Hollywood wannabe scene, it’s pretty dark, things rarely go well for our characters. There is more setbacks and personality disorders you can shake a stick at!

    BUT…what happened to Chelan Simmons pornstar character?….too hot for The CW?

  • Mike

    yeah, liked that character, hope she comes back.

  • panda22

    @ Tom….the ratings are here, last week it scored 78,000 on Much Music:


  • Jason

    The CW is just like Big Ben, they have time on their hands but don’t know what to do with it.

    If they get several more big time failures on their hands, they should just air repeats of films as well as their current series. If they don’t repeat well at all, they should take My Network TV’s approach instead.

  • The End

    Can understand the Olympic ratings now, America is literally right behind China, within a few medals of them, and is on course to take the 1st place slot for most medals.

  • Phil

    The LA Complex is doing terrible, and somehow manages to be way better than Glee, 90210, GG and some american crap. Anyway, Pedowitz said they’re not gonna cancel the show.

  • Maurice

    I just got caught up to speed with LA Complex about a week ago for the first time since so many people kept on hyping it up as one of the best shows on television and man were they right. I hadn’t seen a show on The CW this good ever. I couldn’t believe the show aired on CW.

    Pedowitz is going to look like a smart man for not cancelling LA Complex, it just needs to catch on with more viewers like I did a week ago. That’s going to take time but if their patient enough it could breakout in the future.

    I missed it yesterday because of the Olympics but I plan on catching the repeat this Thursday.

  • Maurice

    @ panda22

    Since MuchMusic is a cable Canadian channel and I saw it get only 16,000 viewers in season 1 before so that’s a pretty good number for them.

  • Dean_W

    What Show will air after the Super Bowl this year ? I Hope it’ll be ‘NCIS’ or ‘CSI’ both deserve it.

  • panda22

    @ Maurice….the lowest rated ep. for season 1 was 22,000 on MM, but yeah….78,000 is high for LAC, lol….but compared to PLL on MM…it;s a huge flop!
