    RVN rulzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    NBC are BIG winner!!!
    I think that ONLY NBC take gamble and risk with some new shows not name cops, legal or soapy. They still have even dracula and pirates some kind of shows. Also Hannibal. That is why they are winning. All other networks are afraid for taking these gambels. CBS even in friday go with legal drama come on.

  • Andrea

    Doubtful on Castle going anywhere, except maybe moving days. It’s got the same ratings as basically all of ABC’s other 10pm shows and it has way more vierwers. It skews older but it’s still the most watched scripted show of the night.

  • Mike

    Monday winner is NBC.
    CBS strong Mondays are gone.

  • eridapo

    A25-54 for scripted hour dramas

    Bones 2.4
    The Mob Doctor 1.2
    H50 2.5
    Revolution 3.7
    Castle 2.6

    It’s so insane to me that Castle is the most-watched scripted show on Mondays (by far, I might add), yet its demo numbers do not match its popularity. I mean, really, 1.9?! I know it’s not really that far off from its average last season but it seems so crazy that Castle has 2 million more viewers than Revolution (and no offense to that show or its fans…I’m just using it for comparison purposes), yet Revolution’s demo number is so much higher than Castle’s. The disparity is absolutely mind-boggling to me. I get what the demo means and all that business but I just don’t see how it’s an accurate way of measuring a show’s success anymore…especially not now that there are so many other ways to watch our favorite tv shows (DVR, iTunes, online, etc). It really does seem to be a convoluted and outdated system for rating shows. Am I completely off base here?

  • Jared

    The CW should add more concert specials to there lineup..perhaps when the shows go on winter/summer hiatus. Obviously Mob Doctor will be cancelled but what does FOX have on deck to replace it?

  • eridapo

    Once the A25-54 are taken into account, both H50 and Castle look much better.

  • Hubert R.

    Oh, CBS, get rid of that dragger-down Partners. The sooner you feel it with anything the better.

  • Elena


    Thanks for posting the 25-54 numbers. I know they don’t “count” for anything (just like total number of viewers somehow doesn’t “count” for anything) but it’s just interesting to see how different the numbers are for this age bracket than they are for the magical 18-49 bracket. This whole ratings system is just so infuriating and upsetting to me.

  • Casey

    Saying that episode 2 of Partners was better than the pilot has to win the award for most back-handed compliment ever. Yeah, it was better than the pilot, nearly impossible to do worse.

    This show needs to go.

  • Andrea

    @ Elena

    No, I don’t think so. I think a number of people would agree with you. A lot shows have high total viewership number but low demos. I think it’s kind of stupid to say that people over a certain age won’t spend money on things..my mom spends way more money on random crap than I do!

    Sadly, the networks haven’t adopted a better way of looking at ratings.

  • Ben Thompson

    Glad Bones tied DWTS.

  • Petar Ivanov


    Why i am hering more and more for this A25-54 demo? What is going on. WIll it metter for the future now or what? Please explain if you know or anybody from Tv by the numbers. Thanks.

  • kari oloughlin

    happy to see Hawaii five-0 doing better 2nd place not so bad, i see that all the shows are struggling a bit this year no good debuts till now hope the middle of the year will be better specially for my fav show H5.0 its really worth watching has some great stuff going on this year very spicy storyline :) & a very interesting guest stars list

  • Hubert R.

    Fill* it, LOL.

  • Chris

    Castle’s back in last place–and it’s not done dropping. We’ll see series-lows this season. These may not be cancellation #’s–yet–but they sure as hell are “move it out of that timeslot” #’s.

    Fridays would suit it just fine. :)

  • DryedMangoez

    Castle’s numbers look like a CBS procedural’s.

  • Chris

    @eridapo–pity 25-54 isn’t the demo ABC cares about, as a look at their primetime schedule clearly demonstrates.
