    @Mr. Jones

    That’s why I wonder with the claim…

    by ranking, it should have been

    1. BBC
    2. NBC
    3. CBS
    4. ABC
    5. TV Globo
    6. FOX

    How absurd that CBS wiki entry claims the network is the 2nd largest broadcaster in the world after BBC…

    About as absurd as you expecting accuracy from a wikipedia entry…

    Looks like I wasn’t the only person who cancelled my season pass for Hawaii Five-O. There’s only so much terrible writing that viewers will tolerate.

  • Mr. Jones

  • Demonstrable

    So does that make Revolution a hit?

  • Carol_R

    Castle was down most likely because it was a horrible episode. It looks like next week it will be back to the light-heartedness that it is known for and the focus will be off Kate’s mother’s murder. Anytime they have Kate’s mother’s murder that’s a real turn-off for fans of the show. They need to just drop it entirely in my opinion.

    “So does that make Revolution a hit?”

    NO. It aired 2 episodes.

    ABC tends to have very female oriented programs. DWTS and Castle BOTH are very female oriented as are Once Upon a Time, Revenge and thier other shows.

    CBS: I think will rebound in the coming weeks. They will most likely reshuffle thier line-up.

    NBC: The Voice shows the popularity of AI-type live singing shows which seem to be a ratings winner. NBC should stick with this non-scripted show because many of thier scripteds tend to not do well. I also think they benefitted from premeiring thier shows early. People naturally sampled them because there was nothing on but reruns. However, if the writing tanks, people will soon find other options.

  • Cindy

    Oh and also, Revolution’s setting is remonicent of The Hunger Games which was very post-apocalyptic. This may make younger viewers attracted to the show. (It also has a female archer lead, like The Hunger Games.)I was the first thing I thought of when I saw the series.

    They should put there lineup back to what it was last year , that did very well. Still dont no why they changed it.

  • mattfitz

    Ha Ha Castle fans what happened with it crushing The Revolution.Its going down ha has Couldnt be happier myself

  • mattfitz

    BTW if people didnt watch the crappy shows how can u blame it on the plot makes no sense at all ,u lost people watched something else quit whining!

  • Mr. Jones

    @ PinoyTvCritic

    I agree it should go just like that because the amount of homes are ranked right.

  • joss


    I really see Grey’s doing about a 2.8 this week.

    As to OUAT and Revenge, I see OUAT doing a 2.5 or 2.6 with Revenge going down to a 2.2.

    that is a big drop for OUAT could you explain why? otherwise you are crazy person hah !

  • Aaron

    Lot of buzz going on in regards to CBS low ratings on monday , some people are even saying the Nielsen ratings are wrong … very weird start to the 2012-2013 season

  • omar

    hawaii , castle &revolution will get renewed

  • June

    H50 is the biggest loser of the night LOL.
    CBS moved CSI Miami for a show that killed the numbers in that slot. Bad laughable plot and even worse acting. They were lucky until now that only had Castle there .If not h50 would had been crashed earlier. It was canceled in Australia last season.
    Poor TNT. LOL. They really are paying for a brand new Benz and getting a 10 year old Toyota.

  • Justin121

    CBS was too full of itself and they deserve what happened.

    Yes, this new Monday shakeout would take some time to settle or even grow, but starting the new season like this was a big mistake.

    Week 1: 1-hour HIMYM, 2BG, new show.

    Week 2: HIMYM, M&M, 2BG, new show.

    AND the new show should’ve been something A LOT better than Partners.

    ABC ony has 2 hit comedies – 1 of them is even lower rated than all 5 CBS hits – yet they managed their block much better than CBS just did for 3 years going.

    CBS has 4 tentpoles and 1 hit, yet they screwed up big time.

  • jessie

    come on Americans!! do you really beleive in those kind of manipulated rating?? dont make me laugh!! do you wanted i think that only people from 50 years and more watch Castle!! hahahah. is it a joke?? so tell me, how they can win every poll in the net?? ah ok, only people from 50 and more surf the net!! hahahhaa. you made me laugh a lot. Speaking seriously, I would like to know what really happens between ABC and Castle, no promo at all, i imagine like a war between them. But Revolution, you should be really worried because despite the lack of promotion from ABC with Castle you lost in audience.


    WAY TO GO POSTERS! 260 for finals & 527 prelims–OUTSTANDING

    ABC not looking too good now & still stunned w/ 1.8 H50 (MD only .5 behind)

    Hopefully this was just an off night for CBS but I dunno, not looking too good here
