    I’ll have to respectfully disagree and just see how it does. I think it’s just premature to call it now to be honest.

  • John A

    Summer isnt a great actress. She was good in Firefly and TSCC when she played ‘Robot’ roles but in general i dont find her appealing.

  • LT

    I would take Eli Manning over Peyton in a big game. Eli is clutch.

  • Andrew

    Switched at Birth is impacted by The Voice and 90210. It does better in the summer without competition.

  • SouthPhilly

    WWE was at 1.8 with the 2 hours. Now they continue to drop with 3 hours. It is not working.

  • Nikki

    so switched dipped a little.. if it aired on the CW everyone would be saying oh its doing so good. and yeah the voice might take a few viewers away but switched almost always beats 90210.. and theres still hope it will be adjusted down so dont count switched out yet. Its doing just fine.

  • Nikki

    not to mention it beat 90210 in viewers this week. they might have had the same rating but more people watched switched.

  • NYC

    Good to see Chrissie and Mr. Jones up there. Jim Jones aka Mr. Jones aka Capo is such an a$$hole and i love every minute of it. lol

  • Darius

    Alphas is so good, shame it is so slept on.

  • pll fan

    Nikki

    There’s still hope what will be adjusted down? Final ratings are in and 90210 didn’t drop. In fact, it was this week in total viewers and demo(although neither were good). It got the same demo, 0.6, that S@B did. Also, isn’t 90210 in its 4th or 5th season? Not its 1st….

  • Heshi

    I wouldn’t count Alphas out yet. Monday night is a very tough timeslot — especially with Monday Night Football in play now. Maybe SyFy will consider moving the show to another night? Like Friday? After all, Haven does well that night, and Alphas can, too.

  • Meanie

    That fact that Family Guy is doing good on reruns kills me. Like I find it amazing more people watch the same episode over & over but less people watch new series episodes of shows like Switch At Birth & Alpha’s.

    Can someone answer this. I have a Nelsien box in our home. Their is a button you press when you are suppose to enter the room but I leave it on all the time. So if I’m switching back && forth between to shows which view count. The show I tuned into first or my view counts for both?

  • The End

    @Heshi

    Sorry to say you’re grasping at straws. There is no chance at this point of renewal. The network simply wouldn’t be allowed to renew this show. NBC Universal would block it. Same thing happened to Eureka, although Eurekas numbers were better.

  • Bryan

    @Nick – Can you post the ratings for Figure It Out’s season premiere on Nickelodeon at 7pm? Thanks!

  • Lol

    “That fact that Family Guy is doing good on reruns kills me. Like I find it amazing more people watch the same episode over & over but less people watch new series episodes of shows like Switch At Birth & Alpha’s.”

    Family Guy has a large fanbase. Most of them are Middle school through college kids.

  • Kelly

    S@B is fine. It is not a big hit, but ABCF is not a big hit network. PLLfan is right – PLL is the exception now. The days when SLOTAT, MIOBI, PLL and S@B all routinely did over two million people are long over. ABCF is a million viewer network now, not a two or three. And those of us who used to love that it did better than the CW can’t make that joke any more. The leadership of ABCF seems lost, while this new season of CW shows is very smart. CW is on it’s way up, ABCF is clearly on its way down. S@B does very solidly in its female demo, it’s the biggest critical and awards hit the network has by far. That will buy it a lot more than numbers alone, on a network where no shows are getting numbers.

  • Nikki

    @ pll fan my mistake i didnt see the finale ratings post when i commented. And yes your right Switched is in its 1st season.. but if im not mistaken switched had more viewers then 90210 did this week. And im pretty sure it beats 90210 every week. Including last year as well.

  • Heshi

    @The End

    Gee, it must be nice to be so certain about Alpha’s fate — do you have some inside information? Well, perhaps I do, and it ain’t over til the fat lady sings. Let’s see what happens after next week’s finale. Would you be willing to eat your words?

  • THE OLD MAN

    Nice, Major Crimes 0.9

  • The End

    @Heshi

    I’m all too happy to admit when I’m wrong. In this case I’m not, so let’s save this discussion for the cancellation post that will be made here in the couple weeks :)

    I actually didn’t want this show to fail. I actively encouraged people to tune in to both Alphas and Warehouse 13. So I did my bit.
