    It’s unbelievable that people who post on a ratings site have no concept of ratings.

    Yes, 2.2 is technically a good number for NBC, but for a show in its third airing with a strong lead-in and no competition, it’s not so hot. That means the show will be in the 1s pretty quickly once everything else comes back.

  • Bern

    The Voice gets better ratings than The X-Factor. I think because all of the coaches from The Voice have great chemistry and they joke about each other which people like that. While The X-Factor is just another singing competition like American Idol we seen that before and according to the ratings people really dont care about this show. AI just need to end and those new judges are not interesting I rather have XF instead with.

    “Go On” is terrible…people are just too lazy to turn the channel after watching The Voice! And they have NO real competition in the time slot!

  • Pierre

    Exactly Joe, a 2.2 out of a 3.4 is not good. It’s not like that 2.2 came out of a 2.8 like Guys with Kids had last week. It’s numbers were down more this week too with The Voice capturing a 5.1 at 8:30pm.

    I wouldn’t even say Go On’s rating is that good its okay but not good. It bled way too much this week but NBC will take it at this point.

  • Torres

    If this is the best Go On can do with a huge lead-in then I can’t imagine what its going to do once DWtS, LA, and New Girl all return next week.

  • senor chang

    Retaining 100% of last week’s ratings is good for Go On no natter what the lead-in. More exposure means more chances to build a core audience. It’s in its third episode and people are already hating on it as if it already failed.
    Same goes for The New Normal.
    My take? Both shows will drop. How much, I’m not sure. But both shows will get something that almost no show got on NBC last year: a consistent source of potential viewers, some of whom will undoubtedly come back. How big THAT audience is the metric by which the shows’ success/failure should be determined, not by faulty assumptions about what NBC wants or how badly the shows will supposedly crater once competition sets in.

    @samatha h
    I guess people who watch any hit that comes after another hit are too lazy to turn the channel, then. Or maybe they actually like it?
    As for competition, Go On had 20/20, which had the highest ratings for ABC in the slot in four months. Next week will be a lot harder. But we’ll see.

  • JJ

    I’m really enjoying Go On. Glad that it’s doing so good…. Can’t wait till the Happy Endings start though :)

  • Wendy

    Considering how utterly AWFUL the initial promos were for “Go On”, I was expecting it to bomb and be on the list for one of the first cancellations of the season.

    But then I somehow ended up unexpectedly seeing the pilot during the Olympics and was surprised at how much heart it had, even if not laugh-out-loud funny. I’m glad I decided to stick with it, because it seems to improve with each passing episode. I think this past one was pretty funny.

    I really hope it succeeds. Great cast, sharp writing, heart, and some laughs is not bad criteria. Although I also like “New Girl”, but I can catch that online (no DVR).

    In any case, glad “Go On” is off to a promising start. Let’s see how it does with half of the competition involved next week, though. (Half since “Happy Endings” doesn’t return until October 23rd, which I think is a mistake with such fierce competition.)

  • DJ Turner

    Naw that Go On sucks way overrated, too bad its protected good because now NBC can’t get rid of it so fast. What’s even worse is New Normal I’m glad that’s doing bad right now.

  • Wendy

    Protected? Hardly. Come next week, “Go On” is against “New Girl”, Fox’s biggest comedy, and it will be against “Happy Endings” as well come next month.

    A protected show is usually not up against TWO established comedies AND the CBS Tuesday monster of the “NCIS” franchise.

    So I disagree.

    As for “New Normal”, I have no idea if that sucks or not since I don’t watch it and don’t have any interest in doing so.

    Go On will get renewed next week Wednesday!

    I hate how FOX used American Idol back in the day to destroy any show that have a chance of being a hit , i am really happy seeing them steuggling this season and i hope it continue this till they end up the fourth network after CBS – ABC – NBC

  • Doug

    A good start for NBC, but we’ll see how this shakes out. NBC is good at starting things. They’re not so good at holding an audience.

    And yes, I would bet $10,000 that the fall edition of The Voice will outrank American Idol on the season. Fox is in for a rough year.

  • DJ Turner

    @ Wendy

    When I was talking about protected I meant its lead-in but yes the competition will destroy it starting next week.

  • Samunto

    It’s lovely to see how we’re all loving NBC’s success. Yes, they’ve suffered for so long and it’s nice to see them catch a break. And it’s exciting in the TV landscape.
    And The Voice has a nice positive vibe to it.

    “I hate FOX and American Idol.”

    Fixed it for you.

    You really don’t need to make up garbage reasons to justify your hate; just say you hate something and move on.

    By the way, NCIS has spent its first seven seasons airing in the American Idol deathslot, so the Death Star’s destructive power was highly overrated. There were also plenty of other hits while Idol was in its prime, they were in its shadow, but you don’t need to be #1 to be a hit.

  • Ultima

    And yes, I would bet $10,000 that the fall edition of The Voice will outrank American Idol on the season

    I look forward to mocking you repeatedly for this statement. ;)

    @The New Flop

    A show with a 2.2 on NBC will not be the first cancelled show on the network!
