    Nope, but .4’s for 90210 and Gossip Girl might. The lower CW’s other shows do, the better HoD’s chances are, despite its own low ratings. CW won’t wipe out its network, even though it needs to. The problem is, even if they start over, who’s going to watch it? It’s rather dead either way.

    Go On’s almost two full rating points behind The Voice. That doesn’t speak much for NBC’s future comedy lineup after The Office ends. I still think they would have had better luck with a multicam there since they seem to hold better when given a mass-audience. Maybe in midseason….

    I know HOD is doing bad. I dont watch it or care but the term is annoying. Just as Flopkita is annoying for Nikita.

  • Sid

    I think it’s way too soon to predict Dixie’s fate. I mean there’s another half of the lineup that’s yet to premiere.

    But still, those are bad numbers. After such a strong start, I expected better from Hart of Dixie.

  • Martin

    @SPM – hope you like the taste of socks.

    It will be renewed for Season 3, mainly because other show will be so bad, will continue to do better than 90210 and GG, will do better than whatever they put on Friday, Arrow will do really well adn help out Supernatural, think BATB will premiere okay but drop hard.

    All in all by the end of the season, HoD will be either the 3rd or 4th highest rated show on the network, and yeah the ratings do suck, but like the motto goes “you don’t have to outrun the bear, you just have to outrun the people behind you” or something close to that, that is the main reason i see a season 3 and if it gets a season 3 it might as well get a season 4 for syndication purposes. Can see season 3 being on either Monday or Tuesday and Season 4 being basically burnt off on Fridays.

    Sure, if one show got 10 season and the spin-off got 2 seasons you can call it a flop. So tell me, which show is HOD the spin-off of? None so your examples don’t apply.

  • SPM

    @ Ville

    Being a spin off is irrelvant you more or less said if a show makes it to a second season only its not a flop which is simply ludicrous.

    @ Martin

    It won’t be renewed but you carry on living in your dream world of deluded hope with Ringer fans.

  • Max

    CW should just crash and burn! Wait, it already has! Heart of Dixie will get the ax sooner than latter.

    Have you forgotten that Go On is on NBC? Relatively, outside of The Voice, Go On must be a success to the suits. Last I saw, a 2.6 beat Up All Night at 1.4 or 1.5, wherever it is, and most of its other shows.

    Hell, its 2.1 last week beat most of NBC’s other comedies.

    I don’t think NBC is panicking where Go On is concerned right now.

    And comparing it to 2.5 Men is Apples and Oranges at its finest. Different networks, one a newbie and one a veteran show, and different thresholds for success. If Go On was on CBS? Yep, it would be a goner. Under no illusions there. But NBC is not ABC or CBS.

    “NBC are not going to be happy with Go On reaching no higher than 5 – 6 million viewers each week when you see how established hits like TAAHM still pull in well over 10 million.

    It certainly won’t make it to a second season thats for damn sure.”

    Among the more nonsensical things I’ve read today. And it had lots of competition!

    @ SPM

    Last year Harry’s law had 9 million viewers but only 1 – 1.1 18-49 ratings.. where is Harry’s law now?

    NBC (as all networks) does not care about total viewers, they care only about 18-49 ratings because advertisers pay for this ratings only! 2.6 is the best sitcom NBC had in years in those numbers so it sounds stupid to say it won’t make it to a second season!

  • Jenny

    Wow, people are being tough on HOD. The fact that it’s doing better then 90210, Gossip Girl, and most likely Emily Owens means that the ratings are middling and not flopping. Now if it beats Beauty and The Beast like it beat Secret Circle again last season it will be renewed. So hate on.

  • SPM

    You really think NBC are happy with those ratings and I am called nonsensical? LOL

  • Declan

    Vegas must skew pretty old considering it has over 11 million viewers and only a 2.0 rating. TBBT has around 9-10 million viewers and over a 4.7-4.8 demo.

  • SPM

    @ badman

    We will see

  • badman

    @ SPM

    So… in your opinion NBC should cancel everything except of The voice and revolution????

  • Ville


    Yes, I said it and I stand by it. I don’t think you can call a show a flop if it gets two full seasons. There may be some exceptions like you mentioned but that’s all they are, just exceptions.

    “TBBT has around 9-10 million viewers and over a 4.7-4.8 demo.”

    TBBT has never skewed this young.

  • SPM

    @ badman

    My point was that if the show is getting this now what will it be getting come season end? that point clearly went straight over peoples heads I see.

  • Declan

    @ badman

    Well NBC really only has the Voice if Revolution continues to drop the way it has been.

  • SPM

    @ Ville

    A show with two seasons isn’t even 50 episodes anymore.

    A show that doesn’t even reach 50 episodes is a flop as it can’t be sold for syndication etc etc
