    The creators of Partners are the same guys that created Will & Grace so CBS likely thought they had another big multi-cam hit on their hands.

    cant believe partners was adjusted down.. it was so funny last night. its staying pretty steady so hope it keeps up. on another note im so happy to see the cw shows premiere so low.. haha i knew the network was doomed. time to watch them fail.

    ugh, HORRIBLE numbers for TMD, why this hasn’t been yanked yet is anyone’s guess. CW numbers are pretty bad as well, though it dosen’t matter is GG’s case since it’s the final season, I hope arrow does okay when it premieres tomorrow. H50 numbers are way down from last year but at least it’s staying ralatively stable at the moment, and it’s safe for next year because of syndication so no need to worry there. Revoultion continues to drop, I have a felling it’s going to be this year’s “the event”, though I’m not completely ruling out it’s renewal since it’s the highest rated rookie scripted show this season (Just goes to show what a terrible year this is for new shows).

    YES CASTLE!!! 100% of the demo retention AND didn’t get adjusted down!!!!

    I think Castle is holding up very well against TOUGH competition. Revolution is doing well but H50 is losing audience to Revolution.

    DWTS has dropped BIG time from it’s highs BUT it has been stable here and has a LARGE audience.

    damn yeah 90210 has to go and this coming from someone who watches, I’m glad both 90210 & GG numbers are so low making Hart of Dixie look really good.

    CBS made a huge mistake altering the Monday line-up. They had a real winner there, and Thursday isn’t really much stronger than it was already. Should have left it exactly as it was.

    That being said, there are problems with the shows themselves–HIMYM is running out of gas, now that it’s in endgame. 2BG desperately needs to dump Jennifer Coolidge from the cast. Mike & Molly should NOT have gotten married in the first season–c’mon! You never ever do that on a show revolving around a romantic relationship. They shouldn’t have gotten ENGAGED for like another two or three seasons.

    Of course, the real fail is Partners. Absolutely unwatchable. When showrunners want to do a show about themselves, RUN AWAY.

    ME: Excellent. What i think with better english than me. Thanks.

    And still 2BG is BEST and most funny CBS sitcom. (i mean after TBB) But TAHM is more funny than last year we must notice that too.

  • GG

    LMAO. Gossip Girl doesnt matter at this point but CW is even more screwed this season than they were last year. I bet they will regret getting rid of ringer and secret circle by 2013. LMAO

    Castle isn’t holding up. It’s trending way down from last season. And if that trend continues, it will see series-lows this season. And the present series-lows are LOW. Honestly, it should have been canceled in S1,and replaced with a show that could have capitalized on the DWTS Monday lead-in, back when that lead-in meant something.

    What’s going to happen when it doesn’t even have that, later this season?

    We keep hearing that a show isn’t competing with its timeslot competition, but with its own past performance, and with other shows on the same network–by neither standard is Castle holding up.

    How to Be a Gentleman aired all it’s episodes?

    Sure… on Saturdays in June. ;)

  • W

    Monday night football played on some CBS affiliates, and that hit the 10 pm hour, adjusting the show’s numbers negatively!

  • Networkman

    Hawaii Five-O has to be moved away from Revolution. While it is now garnering more viewers than Revolution, that show has taken away the all important youth demographics. It is those youth who are watching The Voice who stick around for Revolution.

    Mike and Molly is doing pretty good considering it faces the toughest half hour when The Voice and DWTS garner their highest numbers. Will CBS actually allow Partners to air during sweeps?

    GG got a got fan base. But the reason nobody is watching live is because they can watch on CWTV.com, DVR or download it from itunes which is number one right now!

  • Chris

    @Petar–2 Broke Girls is the ONLY network sitcom I care about at this point. They have a priceless treasure in the chemistry between Dennings and Behr, which is lifting up the so-so scripts every week. Great concept, great leads, but they can’t coast on that. And they can’t keep wasting time on Coolidge. Give her a big send-off, but send her the hell OFF.

  • TSC fan

    NO NO NO!!! doesn’t matter if GG or 90210 are in there 5th or 6th season, other shows survive with 5th or 6th season and manage to get more seasons…..switched at birth KILLED 90210

  • tv sucks

    pretty sure that 90210 will get a 0.6 next week the premiere was solid

  • nick

    GG got a GOOD fan base****.just correcting myself

  • Kyle


    Stop your hating with Castle. DWTS is generating it’s LOWEST Ratings EVER and we see Castle leveling and hold real steady. Usually we see Castle take a BIG nosedive in the demos after DWTS but this season is has proven it’s fans are still loyal. Imagine if DWTS was getting 3-4. I bet Castle would be high 2’s if not 3’s. I love all these Castle haters.

  • Nick


    Mike & Molly should NOT have gotten married in the first season

    Mike & Molly got married in the season 2 finale.

  • Tessa

    *looks at 90210 and GG ratings*

    Where are those who claimed the Supernatural premier had awful ratings and the show had to move back to Friday? I bet they are eating their words now, along with a bunch of crows.

    I hope this doesn’t spell the end for the CW though. I’m keeping my fingers crossed Arrow would save it.
