    Hoping for the Voice is fall this week. Looks lk it’s here for the long run

  • Ultima

    Err, House’s numbers should read “Live-only average”

  • Ultima

    RVL went way down in each Qtr hour…..can we read something into this?

    No, it’s par for the course.

    The Voice is doing impressively well. Last year I watched on NBC… Community, and that was it. This year, I am watching Community, Grimm (caught up with it during summer), Revolution, Go On, and some of their midseason shows also look interesting. This is the network whose posts I would often skip during Renewal/Cancel Index, and suddenly I am cheering for them. If I am any representative, good job NBC!

    Revolution did great. I loved all the cast and I think it will only get better. I loved the flashbacks and I want to know more about what happened since the power went off until the present time.
    NBC is getting the younger viewers on Mondays.

    Revolution is this years Once Upon a Time. People on the Internet hated Once Upon a Times pilot and it became a hit anyway. Revolution is in a similar situation.

    How? Revolution has The Voice as a lead-in. It’s a guaranteed hit. OUAT had AFV as a lead-in, in a slot that hasn’t had scripted programming in almost a decade. It’s was a shocker when it got 4.0.

    Revolution’s numbers were great but I dont trust anything NBC does so it will sit on my DVR for a few weeks before I invest any time into it.

    (And yes we have had this discussion before about waiting for show to take off. No need to rehash it.)

    Mondays at 10pm for NBC is a good launching pad for new shows. Assuming RVN doesn’t nosedive I could easily seeing them moving it to another night next year. Smash when it returns will probably be anemic without The Voice lead in wherever it may land. Mob Dr will probably be put to rest in the next couple weeks

    @Paul who said:

    I agree. And they are both original ideas and great shows. But RVN competition is much more tough than ONCE is at 8 pm on ABC. 8 pm almost nothing on cable in sunday for example you can see this sunday cable ratings. H5O is still big and Castle even in decline is with DWTS lead-in. Also football on ESPN in Monday and USA raw. History channel also is big in this hour.

    Great for RVL, lets hope it doesnt go the way of, Terra nova, The Event,V, Flashforward, Alcatraz, Invasion, Threshold, Surface, Bionic Woman, and many more syfy shows with great potential that only lasted a short amount of time.

  • Mark

    I was .2 off with my prediction for TMD. And .6 off for Revolution.

    Generally speaking, after last season #1 #2 and #3 all best dramas was unique ideas. I mean PoI, Once and Revenge. I think this year RVN and 666 will continue this trend. People less and less watch old cop, legal and medical shows and more and more demand new fresh ideas from creators like Kripke did it. But for that creators must have brain, courage, great storyline to tell etc.

  • Paul

    I agree about the competition being tough.

  • Mon

    CBS is gonna throw an axe in the air next Monday and The Mob Doctor’s gonna be hit by it.

  • Alex

    @Petar Ivanov
    What on earth is unique about Person of Interest or Revenge? Person of Interest has a somewhat original set up (although not really) but is a bog standard procedural. And Revenge is just a glossy prime time soap.

    I saw Monday cable ratings….Monday footbal on ESPN is so close to sunday on NBC. Was 6.4 this time. Big numbers. USA every Monday is around 1.5-1.7 very stable. VH1 shows are stable in Monday too. History at 10. Monday from 8 pm to 11 pm is realy hard day for all shows. May be only thursday at 9 is bigger competition than Monday from 8-11.

    @ John A

    You being a hater is pathetic!

  • Petar Ivanov

    PoI is NOT procedural. In my opinion is much more dramedy than procedural. But you tell it procedural must be with serialized elements. Also its BEFORE the crime. All CBS ‘procedural’ are after. Also this finding Finch quest is genius. Right when I thought this show was gonna end like all other shows and there wasn’t any major cliffhanger, unlike LOST. After every season there was a HUGE cliffhanger that was awesome. This is one of those endings and the music makes it just perfect. Without question, that was on my list of top 10 season endings ever! Just amazing! Awesome, AWESOME the Matrix style ending and the ramifications for next season (so many enemies, themes to be explored).

    @Peter Ivanov

    Loving your comment about the public wanting new ideas instead of cop or medical drama! I’ve been waiting for this to happen for years, I have watched all these sci-fi/shows with amazing ideas and most of the time have failed (V, Terra Nova and the Event) and have never been very interested in medical or cop dramas and now the public agrees and it’s great!
