    I thought NBC comedys might adjust down a tenth.

  • Dennis

    wow…Go On just shy of 10 million viewers

  • DryedMangoez

    Great numbers for Go On.

  • iMember

    NBC did great all around. For The New Normal to stay dead on with its numbers from last night is great. Also, Go On had some really great numbers to boot. This is NBC, no one can say this is bad for them at all.

    Now, time will tell if these numbers hold up and level off at a good spot. I hope it does.

  • Sam

    FOX should be worried tonight honestly.

    If “The X-Factor” does not score above the 4.4 premiere of last year, it will be hailed a disappointment. The media seems to be harsher on The X-Factor than they are on The Voice. It’s as if “The Voice” is a media darling.

    Watched Go On and New Normal. Very happy for the numbers for Go On, great show with a lot of upside. The New Normal was a well crafted and funny show but unfortunately the subject matter and how in your face it is will detract some veiwers. This is unfortunate but probably will be why it is a one and done type of season for it.

    Law & Order: SVU is the only NBC show I want to watch this fall sadly.

    @kaylie…are you paying me :)

    Good for Go On for not dropping. The real test will be when New Girl, Happy Endings, and NCIS are back, BUT for a show that had such God-awful promos, this is a very impressive start – *especially* for NBC.

    Even I know it will fall, but with a 3.4 start, the margin leaves a bit more wiggle room to measure success in the long run, perhaps.

    It’s my favorite (ratings) time of the year: 15 minute breakdowns, courtesy of @travisyanan!

    Go On: 3.7/3.2
    TNN: 2.7/2.3

    I have a hard time imagining NG/HE can chip away a 3.2 below survival level for NBC. Whereas I can imagine MP (and to a lesser extent A23) knocking TNN below the 1.5 or so it needs to survive.

    The New Normal actually grew slightly in viewers aswell from Monday :D

  • Pierre

    Let’s see how things go when the actual competition begins as you see here there was a huge drop off from the time The Voice finished up to The New Normal.

    3.7 to a 2.3 is not a good early sign. New Girl and NCIS: LA are about to really cut into these shows ratings.

    Parenthood had legit numbers and actually had competition from Sons of Anarchy and still look pretty good.

  • Kyle


    These ratings are good for NBC but we really can’t judge anything fully. FOX has a STRONG New Girl who will take A LOT of the 18-49 viewers away from these shows and with increased competition from ABC and CBS things will get DICEY for NBC. Remember NCIS is extremely STRONG with over 17 million each week, ABC DWTS WILL bring in higher ratings since it’s the all star cast.

    Also remember Mathew Perry’s show Mr. Sunshine on ABC started out WELL but 3 weeks later fizzled badly.

  • jake3988

    This ep of Go On was not nearly as good as the pilot, but it I got to admit it’s a funny show. I can’t remember the last time an NBC non-reality show had anywhere close to a 3.4.

  • CrimTV

    To everyone who is saying “stop saying NBC shows are good because competition hasn’t come yet” can’t you just let NBC have a little victory, they hardly ever get victories so let them have one!

  • Ultima

    can’t you just let NBC have a little victory, they hardly ever get victories so let them have one!

    They’re going to finish #1 this week for the sixth time in the past eight weeks…

  • a p garcia

    That girl host on CW “The Next” may give Ryan Seacrest a run for best host.

  • Silvio

    Those are NOT good numbers for NBC.

    The Voice, 4.0 against not much of a competition
    It looks like we can expect 30% fall this cycle to a 3.50 average A18-49 ratings. Remind you, Idol was down 30% last season and everyone called it a disaster. But AI entered from a much higher starting point. The Voice is flaming out really fast with this new rhythm of 2 cycles a year.

    The New Normal 2.5, second lowest NBC fall comedy premiere over last 2 years (Free Agents)
    With a usual decline of shows’ ratings after premiere, it’ll soon be in 1.5 range, if not lower towards the end of fall run. I see something like 1.75 average over first 13 episodes, which would make back 9 order anything but sure. And best (if not only) chance for renewal: most of other new NBC comedies bombing right out of the gate for TNN pity renewal.

    Go On = OK rating, but just OK
    With more competition (New Girl and Happy Endings) soon in the slot and usual post-premiere declines it should stabilize at around 2.0. But with this solid start it should translate to around 2.5 ratings in fall and over 2.0 through 22 episodes – not spectacular, but at NBC lock for renewal.

    Parenthood is down, but it’s OK, they’re just racking up episodes for syndication.

    Happy for “Go On” – I liked “Mr Sunshine” too but this is the better Matthew Perry show. Hoping it continues to do well, even while two of my fave comedies go up against it in the future. “The New Normal” was fun, too.
