    “NBC might be regretting the full seasons of Go On and New Normal. Good Dixie didnt adjust down.”

    After they see the numbers for their Wednesday and Thursday sitcoms, they’ll probably regret it less.

    HOD can handle the competition a 0.7 for this show is pretty good.It only premiered with a 0.8 after all.
    Will be interesting to see what GG and 90210 pull to compare. Shame Parenthood adjusted down with such a wonderful episode last night. Next week the family finds out, so if there is no uptick I will be confused. Go On is starting to really falter.If The Mindy Project falls again next week it will definitely be cause for concern. Fox slow your roll on this one!

    Next season CBS will need from at least 4 new 10 pm shows/dramas. May be even 5 if CSI go down as well.

    @ Zach

    I liked TSC and was gutted it was cancelled however I just didn’t like HOD and don’t get why such a boring boring show could be renewed.

    “Weird that HoD did not adjust down since it dropped 200.000 viewers in the half and went down to a 0.6 rating”

    Half hour preliminary ratings differences do not indicate an adjustment likelihood.

    john a.. i wouldnt go that far and say its a loser. its a show in its 4th season id say the ratings are fine. a little low to start but im guessing its going to pick up. if you want to point out losers HOD is one.. i dont care if it had .7 last night that wont hold up. or pick any other cw show.. everything on the network sucks.

    I’m sad for Vegas. It’s a good show.

    I do like Elementary a lot better (based solely on the first ep) so as long as Elementary can survive, I’ll be happy.

  • Nazel

    Poor Parenthood, it keeps growing on me every season, hope it picked up :(

    Hart of Dixie holding up! So nice to see! I was affraid it was going to be adjusted down! Hopefully it maintains this audience during the season. I wanted to like Vegas, but it coming down akes H50 looks much better so I am not too bummed, especially sine the pilot disapointed me. Worried about Go On though. Although it will still probably be renewed, considering it is the least bad, it is not performing as it should, by any means. New Girl is still very strong and I am happy with it. Now, if only ABC would stop being stubborn and would put Happy Endings at 9, all would be well!

  • SPM

    Hopefully it maintains this audience during the season

    It won’t I can guarantee that.

  • eridapo

    The 15 minutes break down for Vegas do not make sense..

    (Vegas: 2.9, 2.6, 2.3, 2.2) Are you sure? If that was the breakdown, the ratings should be 2.5 not 2.0.

  • Petar Ivanov

    CBS’s new shows are all flops (except Elementary). They picked some of the most awful pilots in the history of television and it’s ruining their good track record. Vegas hitting a 2.0 in its second episode is not good, no matter how you spin it. Made in Jersey (aka Snooki: The Lawyer) is a colossal bomb. Partners is atrociously unfunny. Only Elementary has been enjoyable, but has also received negative press. CBS should be a bit worried…

    ME: That was my opinion 2 week ago. And no Elementary is crap too. Even bigger crap than Vegas is. In the end Vegas and Elementary will collapse the same way. They are boring and “more of the same”. Monk was way better than Elementary. Sherlock is another universe. Copy/paste faild BIG for CBS…. As legal dramas faild even bigger.

  • Oliver

    Go On dropped an entire ratings point, almost a third of its audience, in two weeks. I know there’s external factors involved but it’s still a huge drop. Be interesting to see how it rebounds next week and how many viewers are gone for good. I think The Voice rerun was a very shortsighted move from NBC.

    And Happy Endings is still yet to premiere, which should take at least another couple of tenths out of it.

  • Petar Ivanov

    Last week i think. Mistake may be.

  • omabin

    I think those 15min breakdown are from last week. @Bill?

  • jamie

    I hope Hart Of Dixie can go higher next week. Hopefully over 2 million.

  • soso

    good for the voice

  • Ultima

    Next season CBS will need from at least 4 new 10 pm shows/dramas. May be even 5 if CSI go down as well.

    The concept of relative ratings seems completely lost on you.

  • nikki

    HOD will never go to 2 million. ever.
