    Glad to see RHONY doing better, this season is finally getting good last night was the best episode of the season. Next week looks even better so I expect the ratings to go up.

  • Ike

    Oh no, I’m very sad to see Alphas only getting an 0.4. Bummer. It’s such a well-written and thoughtful show with great characterization. No wonder, with some DS9 alums writing it. Last night’s episode was really compelling. Oh well. Meanwhile, Syfy damages its brand beyond all repair with all this TLC/A&E-level ghost “reality” trash. Few or none of that trash’s viewers will also tune in to the same channel for a smart show like Alphas.

  • The End

    You’re right though, when Alphas gets cancelled, it wont end conclusively.

    If Worse case scenario occurs and Warehouse 13 goes too(Unlikely), and Defiance has a poor start and ends earlier, the network has nothing left that the public knows about, which on the outside would be a huge mess.

    That said, the haters of the network will rejoice if this occurs and the network is forced to premiere some new shows in 2013 to cover for these.

  • pll fan

    Bunheads just isn’t the hit ABC Family thought it would be. It’s lead-in can’t be blamed for that. ABC Family promoted the heck out of it and it hasn’t lived up to expectations. I still think ABC Family might give the show a second chance though. They gave The Lying Game and Jane By Design another chance, so why not Bunheads? I also think the network will renew Secret Life for a shortened 6th and final season. They did it for Greek, which hadn’t even aired as many episodes or had nearly the success Secret Life has. Secret Life helped ABC Family makes it mark. I think they’ll let the show go out on its own terms regardless of the poor ratings. I think the network will let them slide by with the lackluster ratings due to the show being in its 5th season.

  • tony

    quit trying to blame bunheads bad ratings on slotat. pll gets great ratings but jbd and tlg followed it and got bad ratings, so the idea that bunheads gets bad ratings because slotat does holds no weight. bunheads gets bad ratings because no one seems to be interested in it, plain and simple.

  • Rocky89

    @The End

    Syfy has really hurt itself. They screwed over great shows like Sanctuary and Eureka, now fans who were upset, even fans of older shows can see Syfy tank. This is what happens when they don’t listen to fans, and only care about money.

  • The End

    @Rocky89

    To be fair, the problem is a lack of Nielsen viewers watching the shows.

    Paranormal shows have had huge success in the past, so the network produces more, as a result the existing viewers feel alienated when their fav show is cancelled for one reason or another, i.e lack of viewers, too expensive. And at the same time more of the shows they don’t want to see come out.

    Assuming things don’t improve the network could decline further, that said I would like to see Stargate revived and a return to what made the network popular to begin with.

    I’m not feeling the Defiance hype. Besides Warehouse 13, what’s left on the air? Being Human, and Haven, and a bunch of imported shows like Merlin, Lost Girl.

    I’m still optimistic of a Warehouse 13 renewal, but if both these shows are cancelled, it’d be dire for the network.

  • Rocky89

    @The End

    You think it could get *that* bad for Syfy?

  • The End

    @Rocky89

    If Warehouse 13, Alphas, and eventually Defiance end up cancelled, then yes.

    That’s just my opinion though. Would like make that clear, but I’m sure you’d agree if these 3 go, there’s nothing left.

    Which would force the network to premiere new shows to replace, and if these fail, well lets not think too far ahead.

  • Rocky89

    @The End

    After what they did to Sanctuary, I hope so. I can’t believe a network did that to it’s own show, and the fans. It seems Syfy may pass up on Continuum. Must be because it’s a “sci-fi” show. :/

    I mean… @ContinuumFans #Continuum will most likely end up on a cable channel like FX or TNT. I admit @Syfy’s history concerns me a bit too.

  • jess

    i think they’ll give bunheads a second chance. and i’m pretty confident they will give switched at birth a second season, so maybe they could put bunheads behind sab in january? it seems like a better match than SL. then they could stick with pll and tlg. and if they renew jbd they could pair it up with SL in march, and then renew SL for one more short season 6 and finally end SL around this time next summer.

  • Nick

    @jess

    Switched @ Birth can’t air in January. Its season ends in December. I’m hoping they’ll air a Bunheads/SAB block for 20 eps May/June-December next year. That would be a big success.

  • tony

    Jess,
    With S@B coming back in September I seriously doubt it comes back after that in January. It probably won’t be back to start Season 2 until March. The only 2 shows that we know will be back in January are PLL and The Lying Game. I could possibly see the network bringing Secret Life back in January too.

  • Jenny

    Switched at Birth is coming back in September with eight episodes, so it will end likely in October. The Lying Game aired a mid season finale in October, and returned in January so yes it is possible for SAB to return in January.

  • Michael

    I’m not surprised Teen Wolf didn’t rise that much for the finale. The show has a small, but loyal fan-base and it’s consistent.

  • pll fan

    I think Switched At Birth actually has 9 episodes left to air when it returns next month.

  • Nick

    Switched At Birth has 10 episodes left to air.

  • Chris

    If haven and warehouse 13 come back next year they should be paired up. Imho

  • Kissan

    Actually S@B season finale airs Monday, November 5th. So it ends in November.

  • DM

    There are Only 8 episodes of switched at birth in the fall. The original order was for 10 but they cut it down to 8. The finale is Halloween themed and they made it that way so the network can go right into the 13 nights of Halloween. ABC family never airs new original programming from mid October until January because of the Holiday specials they do (13 nights of Halloween and 25 days of Christmas) the only time they do air new original programming in those months is if it is a holiday special
