    Absolutely right. The CW is a much smaller network and isn’t available on several cable and satellite providers from what I understand. A strong show would be considered 1.0 and up. We’re hoping Arrow does somewhere around there. I’m sure it will, though we can’t be too sure. It’s the first new show to premiere so here we go….

  • Andrew

    I think Hart of Dixie should hopefully bounce back next week! Fingers crossed.
    Such a great hour of television. It has the feel of the classic WB shows & I love it.

  • CrazedNovelist

    Oh… and Cult is meant to be on Fridays as a lead in for Nikita. Though I’m not 100% sure of that. Mostly like Top Model will not have a spring cycle or be moved to a different timeslot to replace another show (if any of the new shows are cancelled)…. last year we had H8R which was promptly cancelled.

  • Kelly

    Extremely curious to see what Arrow’s ratings will be tomorrow given that so many have expressed interest in it. Plus, I want to see how Nashville does.

  • Justin121

    The CW COULD still see good days on Wednesday and Thursday with Arrow, SPN, Vamp, and Cult after Beauty & Beast fails (shame they didn’t pick up the fantasy one – could’ve ridden on the Once Upon A Time success).

    Tuesday with Dixie and Owens could be a make it or break it night.

    Monday with 9-0 and Carrie will prbably be their lowest rated night.

    The Cult/The Following situation this year reminds of last year’s Revenge/Ringer of two similary themed series. One on CW, on on Big 4. One makes, one doesn’t.

    (There’s also the extreme examples of The Playboy Club/Pan Am and Grimm/Once Upon A Time where both could be failures or both could be hits — was 2011 the year of twin shows?)

  • Jonathan

    Man alive, you guys want them to cancel everything and show nothing but nature documentaries, don’t you?

    Maybe people who hate TV should find something else to do instead of coming here and telling people that everything they like is stupid.

  • Networkman

    Wow at New Girl posting a 2.7 demo out of a 1.5, whereas Go On can only get a 2.6 out of The Voice’s 4.5. I feel if New Girl was behind American Idol it would improve. I can see it steadily garnering over 3.0

    How old skewing Vegas must be to get close to 12 million viewers but end up getting the same demo as Parenthood that only garners less than 5 million viewers.

  • POI

    atleast HOD got 0.5 and its the second best series on the CW rating wise until TVD comes back.

  • CrimTV


    *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.*

    The Big Bang Theory has over 14 million viewers and can reach 4.9 and 5.0 too….

  • Joseph

    @POI of course Flop of Dixie is the second “best” in the CW, I wonder why? … because so far only 2 shows have premiered duh!!!! Let’s see how Arrow will perform.

  • Oliver

    The CW is available in 95%+ of households. The network’s low ratings is nothing to do with its availability. People simply don’t watch the network.

    I’m always amused that people think multicam comedy is a panacea. There is a reason the networks moved away from them, and that’s because they flop much more often than single cams. It works for CBS because they aim at a down-market and gentrified audience and have an existing multicam slate to build upon and even they are targetting a single-camera comedy block next year (presumably because the gentrification of the network’s audience is worrying execs).

    I think the answer is developing better shows, regardless of format. NBC has had yet another year of crappy comedy development by NBC with not a single high-quality, marketable, show. I still can’t believe Save Me went to series.

  • nikki

    so happy to see parenthood stay high.. wish it was adjustwd up but still good. and im really surprised dixie got adjusted up.. not that it will matter a 0.5 isnt much better.


    @ Networkman

    2.0 Parenthood–5m viewers
    2.0 Vegas–12m viewers–Crazy, isn’t it?


    I personally like

    4.5 The Voice–12m viewers
    3.4 NCIS–18.5m viewers

  • Brian J


    I like both “GO” and “TNN.” They are far from perfect, but they are solid.

    Have you seen “Save Me”? If not, aren’t you just reacting to the concept rather than the series? The concept seems great, but I worry about the execution.

  • Cameron

    Is the steal idea what’s helping The Voice at the moment? It seems to be popular.

  • JJA

    I wouldn’t say goodbye to HOD quite yet.

    It still did better than 90210 (& Gossip Girl). Also, this morning (Thursday), its last episode from TWO days ago was #7 on iTunes. By way of comparison, the Arrow pilot was #3 and last night’s Supernatural was #24. Let us wait and see what happens.

    Although, if I were the CW, I’d announce this as 90210’s final season and move it to Friday ASAP.

  • Brian J


    “Go On” is a hit show for NBC because it’s doing better than any other scripted comedy on the network and is probably increasing the network’s numbers in its specific time slot, too. Is it “The Big Bang Theory”? No, but perhaps it could be. And even if it’s not, right now, it’s working for NBC.

  • ReallyTired

    I can’t believe ‘Mindy’ got a full season order. Someone at FOX will lose their job over that one.
