    “Hawaii will go to Tue at 10. Their Monday night has never been so fragmented. Their 8pm show never older, their 9pm show never weaker. They can let 5-0 bleed out on Tues. and get something more vital on Monday. Even the very female Made in Jersey would be a better fit.”

    If that’s your opinion on what should happen, whatever. Join the rest of the commenters proposing wishful thinking schedules.

    If that’s a prediction on what will happen, it’s complete nonsense. H50 could move to Sunday or Friday next season, but it’s not going anywhere this season.

    @Bill
    Hawaii Five-0 will go up because Monday people wanted to see what was Revolution and the relationship between Castle and Beckett. I think it’ll move to Sunday at 9:00PM next Season to replace The Good Wife that will certainly be canceled.

    LOL the Voice beating out NCIS in ratings is not really that worrisome considering it’s a new show and it should be fresh and high in ratings number as expected whereas NCIS is a show that’s been running for 10 years now – and anyways, the difference between a 4.2 and 4.1 is not really that much. Shows like the Voice may prove to be good hits in its early years but from viewing experience, those shows always crash in the end but look at NCIS, 10 years and it proves to be strong and steady as ever, and with another strong viewership number over 20 million, it’s not going anywhere. I suspect by the time the Voice is done, NCIS will still be standing strong.

    @Ultima: “Because the network still has four years left on its contracts with the affiliates”

    Sorry for coming in late, but do you have a link for that? If their shows need syndication to get profitable, but there are doubts as to whether future season shows could ever run for long enough to hit syndication, well, it should have odd effects on their decision making.

    Those aren’t encouraging quarter-hours for Vegas. If it gets any sort of backorder, it would just be to cover through Feb sweeps.

    Minday show absolutely worst sitcom i have ever seen in my life

    How many years have American Idol been running??? 10 years plus right???

  • PinoyTVCritic

    @CJ

    Chrisntina did not make the voice of what you can call a hit by NBC standards. If anything the Superbowl did.

    If The Voice isn’t a hit by broadcast standards, then that makes American Idol and NFL as the only legit hits on television.

    I know Happy Endings isn’t gonna get the best ratings, but that doesn’t necessarily mean ABC will cancell it. The show has never really been the biggest ratings getter but the people at ABC like it and they know it gets a lot of buzz and made a lot of “best of” lists last season, much like a lot of the lower rated NBC comedies (30 Rock, Community, Parks, etc) it’s cult following seems to be enough to keep it on the air despite not getting the best ratings.

    I should clarify that I’m specifically talking about the deal with the Tribune Co., not every affiliate. However, given that they own WGN (Chicago), WPIX (New York) and KTLA (Los Angeles) and ten other CW stations, if they don’t renew, it will be a deathblow to the network.

    If their shows need syndication to get profitable, but there are doubts as to whether future season shows could ever run for long enough to hit syndication, well, it should have odd effects on their decision making.

    Indeed. However, I think that if they have a show within a season of syndication when the network goes under, they’ll manage to find a home for it somewhere (e.g. TNT).

    Thus, this year should still be normal for the CW.

    Once it’s time to start talking about the development of shows and renewals/cancellations for the 2014-15 season, that’s when “The CW might not be around” will be an actual consideration.

    The New Girl was never funny, started to fade last year, and did not open strong this year. It has one more year left, at best. It will dwindle throughout this year. It’s already a tired show after one season.

  • Hawaii Five-0 Rocks!

    If I remember when SMASH started it got better ratings then H50 for 3 weeks.
    When people got bored with the story they tuned back to H50 and I think the
    same will happen here. Castle got viewers because they “did it” and the what happens next (nothing). Revolution got viewers because it’s new and
    people who watch action tv series(H50)wanted to see what all the hype was about.
    I’m not happy with H50 on Monday night but it’s not going to change this
    season.

  • Ted Craig

    Apt. 23 is not going to last the whole season. Its second half may get burned off in the spring. It has two jokes (Krysten Ritter is a bitch, James van Der Beek is James van Der Beek). They were stale by the end of last season. If TNN gets picked up for a full season, the B is gonna get evicted.

    It is a shame that there is no official web viewing figures for US Shows. For instance what is the most watched CBS show online? My guess: NCIS.

  • Tim

    Why do soooooo many people watch Reality TV? Does it really hurt that much for them to think?

  • Ben

    Tim; If people wanted to think, they would watch PBS; Nova (Science), Frontline (News), American Experience (historical documentary). Maybe the people who watch reality TV want a break from all the bad news they get during the day and just want to relax and have fun for a few hours.

  • JP

    Yay for New Girl! And Ben and Kate is really sharp. Hope that means it isn’t dumped quickly.

    @ CJ

    You are obviously a Britney fan!
    It’s not even about her exaggerated-by-fans album sales!
    This is about her judging other people’s voice!
    Can you hear me???
    BRITNEY SPEARS IS JUDGING OTHER PEOPLE’S VOICE!!!

    What an insanely, mad, laughable idea!!! :D
    Please process the sentence (the one in all caps) and come back to me.
    Tell me that you’re normal and no brain damage. :)

    I did not love Vegas i wanted too but it seemed cold and tired.

  • Julia

    Nick, New Girl’s demo is still excellent compared to the other comedies/dramas on other networks which usually get below 2.0 or just above 2.0.

    If NG can sustain 2.8 or somewhere around that, I think it will get a season 3. Raising Hope was renewed for a season 3 with like 1.7 in the demo.

    I think it’s a sweet/feel good show. It’s fun and entertaining. And I love the actors on the show. I think they are super talented. And I enjoy watching it. Many young people love the show.

    Those are simply semantics, Bill. With all due respect, you have about as much insight as to what CBS as I do. It’s a valid prediction and certainly wouldn’t be the first time a network moved a show mid-season. They could very well move the show to a time slot with less of a spotlight to preserve it for syndication. Likewise, we haven’t seen how the other nights will perform to know if it would be prudent of CBS to move a show from another slot to Monday at 10. (Monday at 9 hour is only going to deteriorate during NFL season. That’s historic.)

    Everyone thought CBS was going to go with a four-comedy Thursday and they didn’t. It’s always possible they will zag when people think they will zig.
