    @Tom
    what i should have said is that I assume that The CW had higher expectations for TSC. Since it was getting decent ratings, but probably had a big budget (close to TVD’s, due to it’s large cast and special effects) they needed the show to get TVD ratings to be profitable.

    It’s impossible to predict if a second season would have resulted in stabilized ratings for TSC or if it would have continued to drop even more. The CW most likely couldn’t afford to take the risk.

    I still think a 13 episode 2nd season to test the waters would have been a good decision :/

    I agree CBS will not see numbers like last year, but could they at least put up a 3.0 for the night ? A 2.5 is anemic for CBS. Even with greater competition and more DVR use a 2.5 for CBS Monday is pathetic. We have never seen lows like this for CBS Monday before. I cringe to think what these CBS Monday numbers will look like in the spring.

    CBS lost a lot of viewers last night due to Football , so not concerned about their numbers , but Partners is running light given that it follows HIMYM ,
    ++
    as for Revolution , I expected a drop of .2 this week which happened , needing to see what happens next week but , I still expect another drop of .2 for each of the next two weeks for Revolution.

    Now would be a good time for CBS to announce they’re getting rid of Partners & MIJ. How long until 1 of the nets blinks & announces a cancellation ? On ABC I’m certain 666/Neigbors will be its 1st casualties & Mob Dr on Fox.

  • aiden

    ohhh :( I love 90210

    @Danny…if I recall, DVR playback put Castle at 2.7. As for moving Castle…I don’t think it’s a bad idea, just don’t think ABC would do it. I’d like ABC to show some balls and move it, similar to what FOX did with Bones…if it worked, Castle could remain on the air for at least two more seasons while allowing ABC to launch something else after DWTS. Win-win for all parties.

  • alijah

    It is worth noting that more people watched the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion than the past 2 episodes of Partners

    Sigh.

    That’s a meaningless statement. Whenever a network has a weak night, it’s likely going to be the lowest absolute ratings that they’ve ever had on that night because ratings decline. It makes any historical comparisons useless.

    If you look at the relative ratings, you can make more meaningful comparisons. CBS has had much, much weaker Monday night lineups than what they have on right now.

    Just because CBS has had a recent good stretch where their Monday night lineup has been solid doesn’t disqualify from comparison all of the much older crappy lineups that had significantly higher absolute ratings. Just as the fact that top comedies used to draw 30+ million viewers doesn’t mean the current top comedies are doing terribly.

    This is nothing new for CBS – they’ve been down before. They will still have five of the top eight or so comedies this season, no reason for them to panic or whatever you think they’re doing.

    Ouch :lol:

    If they don’t pull it this week, I expect them to next week (no originals on 22 October; 29 October is November sweeps).

    For reference, last season, they had Rules running on Thursdays less than two weeks after they pulled How to be a Gentleman.

    2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly are like those artificially popular sitcoms on NBC Must See TV that followed Friends or Seinfeld. They are the Suddenly Susan/The Single Guy of CBS. Now they are getting found out. Solid hits not big ones that crumble in the face of serious competition. They’ll recover when The Voice & Dancing With The Stars finish.

  • Hugh

    Castle is really dominating H50 this year. H50 has 50% more lead in aswell

  • Billy

    @Ultima

    Please provide me a CBS Monday lineup that had weaker shows than this as a total group. Going all the way back to shows like Murphy Brown I have never seen a weaker lineup than this. For the last time a 2.5 for CBS Mondays is pathetic ! I don’t care about competition or DVR use. CBS expects more than a 2.5 night for any lineup they put out on Mondays. CBS did not put this Monday lineup together to get a 2.5 nightly rating.

  • trent

    I don’t watch H50…but just curious why are the viewers tuninng out this year?

    Fall 1997
    8:00 – Cosby
    8:30 – Everybody Loves Raymond
    9:00 – Cybill
    9:30 – George & Leo
    10:00 – Brooklyn South

    The 8pm hour was fine (ELR was only in its second season and while rising wasn’t a huge hit yet); everything else was weak, especially because the only competition was NBC’s third two-hour comedy block and MNF.

  • shaz

    I Love 90210, shame that it got so low :/ wonder how the rest of season’s ratings will turn out :( otherwise it’s goodbye to my current fav show.

    It probably has a significant audience overlap with Revolution.

    Viewers looking for complete nonsense have a choice and the Revolution is at hand! ;)

  • Billy

    @Ultima

    Almost laugable. Any group featuring Cosby and an all time Classic like Everyone Loves Raymond blows away this current CBS lineup. Cybill wasn’t too shabby either.

    @Nick I’m not a dummy. I know what this site is for. When I said the demo wasn’t the point I was referring to MY POST, not the site as a whole. The point I was trying to make is that Castle has a fan base most shows would kill for…the demo number could be better…I’m not denying that…there is no denying that. I was speaking to Chris’ assertion that nobody watches Castle and that it’s viewership is dwindling. 10.6 million people watching live is a whole lot of nobodies then, isn’t it?

    I am not playing Fan Excuse Bingo. Who’s making excuses? All I was doing was stating facts about NUMBERS OF VIEWERS. That’s all.

    @silvit Like I said in my post, I know what total viewers means to networks…I wasn’t addressing Castle’s value in the network’s eyes (which, btw, I think the show is QUITE valuable considering all the extra tie-ins the show has that makes ABC a crapload of money). I was merely commenting on the fact that show is clearly popular with fans based on the fact that it got 2.5 million more viewers than either Revolution or H50. I AM NOT ADDRESSING THE RATINGS, to be clear.

    @Mark Wood Thank you for understanding the point I was trying to make here. No matter what happens to Castle nobody can ever deny that it is a popular show and a favorite with fans. The number of viewers who are tuning in live on a weekly basis speaks for itself. Considering almost 13 million people watch in total week-to-week (counting DVR views), how can someone ever even try to say that Castle is not a popular show? Demo ratings do NOT speak for a show’s fandom.

    @Dawn You’re 100% right! 2.2 for a 10pm drama on a Monday night is a solid number. Castle may never be the ratings juggernaut that Grey’s Anatomy is but it is holding down the fort on Monday night.

    Almost laugable. Any group featuring Cosby and an all time Classic like Everyone Loves Raymond blows away this current CBS lineup.

    And yet CBS had their hands full trying to beat NBC’s third two-hour comedy block anchored by Caroline in the City and Dateline on Monday nights.

    And thier comedy lineup was completely outclassed by ABC Tuesdays, ABC Wednesdays, NBC Tuesdays and NBC Thursdays.
