    This ep of Go On was not nearly as good as the pilot


  • Allen

    With more competition, Go On and NM will fall. I do expect Go On to get renewed, though. NM can get cancelled for all I care.

  • Dennis

    Just looked at Parenthood’s ratings on wiki

    It has had very stable ratings over the last few years to be fair…

  • mike

    GO ON is a GREAT show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chris

    Don’t forget that this wasn’t the PREMIERE on The New Normal. It was the second episode that actually gained a few viewers. Don’t count it out quite yet.

  • realityDan

    X factor will destroy the voice tonight. NBC thinks that they’re clever, but all they’re doing is killing their own show, only nbc is capable of that. This will backfire on them.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    The big problem to NBC is that they didn’t have yet competition from CBS,ABC and FOX.When Sept. 24 comes out,we’ll see if the ratings will dip or remains steady.What bothers me that Tuesday night primetime is a good one from NBC and I’ll be sad if the ratings to crash and face cancellation.

  • Jesse R

    I don’t get “The Voice”. It is a staged singing competition of contestants who aleady have agents and their AFTRA memberships. Not sure about “The X-Factor”, but “American Idol” is raw full of contestants who have never seen a stage, studio or audience.

  • Fake Me Out

    Take a look at the numbers for Whitney & Up All Night from last year on NBC. Both shows started out strong or very strong and both shows stumbled across the finish line getting renewed because they’re on NBC and they were the cream of the crap. Unless you see early crash ‘n burns or steady increases I think we won’t have a solid idea about future numbers till around Hallowe’en … virtually all shows back, everyone has had a few weeks to sample a few episodes, and shows have had a chance to establish characters and storylines.


  • Joseph

    Those are great numbers for NBC and they should have made the advertisers happy about their spend this week and next.
    But things could change in 2 weeks when all of the Networks have new programming and not just NBC.
    As of the 25th
    FOX – New Girl – Ben & Kate – New Girl – The Mindy Project – NEWS
    CBS – NCIS – NCIS LA – Vegas
    ABC – Dancing with the Stars – Private Practice
    NBC – The Voice – Go On – The New Normal – Parenthood

    Who do you see winning each 1/2 hr ?

    I have CBS 9pm & 10pm in the demo and viewers for both hours , 8pm in viewers
    With NBC getting the demo at 8pm !

    If The Voice is getting a 4.0 rating without competition in the market, I have a feeling that The X Factor will be hitting it home tonight. We will see tomorrow; however, there’s a reason why no one gets tired of the Summer Olympics, because it allows time for people to miss it (every four years).

    The Voice is doing the opposite, they are jamming it into the viewers season after season, two cycles this year, it is just overplayed and not necessary. They are certainly hurting themselves in the back.

    Just judging off of the trending topics on Twitter, I didn’t see one trending topic towards The Voice and upwards of five at one time for The X Factor tonight. With the additions of the new judges, Britney and Demi, I really think The Voice is really set to fade sooner than later and The X Factor, a much better format than American Idol in terms of entertainment, is here to stay for at least a few more seasons.

    Guys with Kids pilot was pretty good, I like it much better than Go On and New Normal. It was simple and sweet.

  • Aeiouy

    @silvio if TNN gets a 1.75 over the first 13 on NBC a back 9 pick up is a guarantee

  • danny94

    Not bad for parenthood would like it to be abit higher though.

  • Zach

    While I do wish for the for NBC, I just don’t think we can praise them too much just yet.

    The Voice of course is going to have a strong start. But It will slowly go down due to lack of interest and competition. Go On also had strong numbers because of it running on the back burners of The Voice and once again, lack of competition.

    I am actually surprised at how well The New Normal did. Seeing as how it scored the same as the first showing. But I am sure that one will go down below the 2.0’s by midseason.

  • Fakeem

    Jessie R: Wrong about AI not having ringers. I stopped watching after the David Cook season because the entire top 10 were former professionals, with Cook having the least experience/exposure of the group. I believe that was when interest in those type of contests began to drop.

  • Keith J.

    I’ve been really impressed with the first 2 episodes of Go On. I was pleasantly surprised it was more of a dramedy than a straight-up sitcom. I wish NBC were advertising it as such. I had no idea going in.

    The New Normal is absolutely forgettable. It’s a good premise, but booooring!!
