    Best broadcast commercial of the new season! GOOSEBUMPS!:

  • SimonSays

    Love love love this season of The VOICE!!! So glad its still #1!

  • bluejays

    Nice to see New Girl go up. Huge drop off for Vegas, be interesting to see its numbers next week.

    Boo at Voice edging out NCIS. Hate hate hate these karaoke shows.

  • Jake

    That’s an awesome promo from NBC for Chicago Fire. That’s Ring of Fire from Adam Lambert.

  • Parker

    I agree with Simon — great numbers for The Voice! It’s been really great this year and I’m so happy that it’s consistently doing well in the ratings.

  • omabin

    Very happy with the new girl adjustments, and also Ben and Kate’s.

  • bluejays

    Yokono. I just watched that trailer. Excellent. I was kind of excited for Revolution but watched the pilot and went right off it. I’m really excited for Chicago fire. More than any NBC show in the last few years. I hope it does decent numbers.

    I loved Law and Order and SVU back in the day and if Dick Wolf can bring the magic those early seasons of those shows had to this it will be brilliant.

  • rob60990

    Thats the best promo I have seen for an NBC show in years.

  • Sal 850

    I definitely co-sign that is NBC’s best promo in years and probably the best I’ve seen in years. I just got the chills watching it, I know what I’m watching on October 10th now.

  • KevinB

    Is there an idiots guide to how exactly do they determine the ratings available anywhere? NCIS had 9 million more viewers than The Voice, but was beaten in the ratings by it? I’m not arguing. I enjoy both programs, The Voice is much more entertaining than American Idol and X Factor in my opinion.

    The video produced by ESPN is particularly good.

  • Nick

    Nice to see B&K not go down in it’s second quarter-hour.
    That is good for its long-term future, unlike the #s for TMP and Vegas.

  • Ali Wick

    I agree with the statement, that FOX is in TROUBLE. The top channel especially on TUESDAY NIGHTS IS CBS. AND LET’S NOT FORGET THE 2 TOP, SHOWS NCIS AND NCIS LA. AND NOW VEGAS, IN THE MIX. They defently have a mega hit. With all 3 shows. Yeah well it is a bummer, that the VOICE beat out NCIS. SO WHAT. It doesn’t matter on how THE VOICE DOES. In the ratings. NCIS IS STILL THE MOST WATCHED TV SHOW. AND I HAVE A FEELING THAT ON TUESDAY NIGHTS, CBS WILL BE ON TOP FOR SURE. I didn’t watch DWTS, and it was still good. When I watched it, on my iPad. But why can’t they replace, DWTS with DUETS. I found that show, more entertaining to watch. Like one hour of each. Instead of 2 hours. Of one show.

  • a p garcia

    DWTS at even 2.1 is still bad, but glad NG was adjusted up to 2.8.

    You peeps that think this needs to be a Battle of Team FOX vs Team CBS , yall be silly :)
    NBC – Gratz again on The Voice , I love the fact that the judges are playful, and supportive both to each other, and the contestants. I have no interest in the rest of your line up on Tuesday , BUT , you held your own at 9pm with Go On.
    FOX – I really wish I could just stream your shows the next days if needed, I like New Girl, and wanted to check out The Mindy Project. Ben and Kate might be DOA , but hard to tell this soon.
    ABC – DWTS not a show I care for , and ratings of 2.1 are the lowest of the networks , so hopefully your getting this produced cheaply. Not impressed by PP but not sure if you could do better with another show in that time slot.
    CBS – Okay , NCIS is in its 10th season & NCIS LA in their 4th, both are doing great ! As for VEGAS , I liked the show but would not have been against a more intense script where they push the envelope of what is shown on broadcast. Vegas has the best ratings at 10pm so enough with people saying it did badly , a 2.5 is pretty great when your nearest competitor pulls a 1.9. VEGAS could use more grit, and be a bit rougher, also as was pointed out , where are the smokers. I love the cast of VEGAS so hopefully it will be taken up a notch.

  • KevinB

    Thank you, Bill!

  • Terry

    This is more like a battle between CBS and NBC except on Thursdays.

    FOX is battling The CW except when X Factor is on.

    After watching that Chicago Fire promo that might be a player on Wednesdays for them.

  • bluejays

    @Rob60990 – I think its the best promo I’ve seen for a network show full stop, in a long time.

  • silvit

    That promo is LOL-worthy. Once again the women looked like they just got out of a beauty salon with all their perfect hair and make-up. A note to broadcast producers: they can’t look like that. Just like Revolution.
