    Oh no! “New Girl”! :/ Hope it recovers next week…

  • Bee

    good numbers for NCIS and the voice. everything else was a mess and/or unimpressive.

    hope the comedies recover next time.

  • Wowza

    New girl will be fine regardless, as will Hope. The other two are literally anyones guess. Quality? Yes. Lets see what happens… the season is long…

    Also, this solidifies Dancing with the stars as a failure. This is bad. Really bad for ABC. Why? They air two cycles of this a year… and its getting this low of numbers… The BAchelor would be better

  • victor hugo

    Hart of dixie with this numbers will be renewed by CW.
    Good bye Emily is good show but..

  • Wowza

    Ben and Kate neds to tick up to a 1.5, then 1.6 and settle here until Idol comes along (when everything on FOX seems to go up .2. or .3 even in the case of Glee likely). So, once Idol is on Ben and kate COULD be at 1.8.

  • Michael

    Expect a season 3 renewal for Hart Of Dixie!

  • Wowza

    Also, Ramsey would be better on Mondays ratings wise. Duh. Stupid FOX…

  • Wowza

    Also, they should air one of the summer Ramsey shows in the Spring / Winter.
    They have yet to announce their whole schedule yet – possibly to announce master chef airing? Or Hells Kitchen a cycle? With Hotel Hell as a full season , this could replace one of these two shows in the summer to still ahve a double dose of Ramsey in the Summer.

  • Paul

    Poor Vegas – excellent episode last night but pulling lower #s than
    Unforgettable last season!!!

  • Linda

    Could we possibly have the half hours for Dancing? I want to see if more people stopped watching before the final reveal.

  • Wowza

    Kudos Heart of Dixie… wow… if it ticks up .1 more a .7 is a good hit for the CW

  • EatMorePez

    How many more cycles before ABC pulls the plug on Dancing with the Stars? 1? 2?


    Hart of Dixie just got a third season renewel. Its doing better than the Ringer did on a much cheaper budget. Vegas IMO needs to move to Friday nights on CBS. IMO if I were CBS I would air it between CSI NY and Blue Bloods. Give it the 9pm hour on Friday nights and I think it would still do same viewership with its demo. Its doing lower demo numbers than Unforgettable. CBS has had a pititful season.

    On NBC the Voice knockout rounds turned out to be great for NBC. IMO much better contestants and teams this season. The Voice was big surprise of the fall as it premiered to high ratings, held it with the whole season. I have a feeling by the end if the Live shows do well that season 3 could actually be higher than 2 in numbers. Season 2 started big but ended with a dud. This season has way more momentum. Why do you all think Voice season 3 is better than 2?

  • Andy

    Yay Dixie, HE and Apt. 23 not getting adjusted down. Sad Emily Flopwens!

  • Andy

    *It’s doing worse than The Flopping Circle and Flopper..

  • Leondre

    That’s it, just 1 adjustment

  • Tony ^_^

    “Dancing With the Stars” is no longer the hit it used to be. And with that, ABC looks like the network with the most problems…

    They’ll need 3 hours of new programing if they decide to cancel it.

    And whatever they put on Monday is likely to fail considering the tough competition.

    Tuesdays have always been their weakest night so expect that night to collape as well.

    The Wednesday line-up is still doing well. But they need to find a new hit comedy as soon as possible to make the night stronger.

    Thursdays are okay as long as “Grey’s Anatomy” is on. But who knows how much longer it can go. The 8 PM slot continues to be a weakspot and “Scandal” has never (??) aired without “Grey’s Anatomy” as a lead-in so who knows if it will do well on its own.

    Fridays are solid at the moment.

    Saturdays don’t matter.

    Sundays are solid except for the 10 PM slot.

    Not bad ratings for Hart of Dixie if it manages a 0.5/0.6 all season i predict a renewel.

  • Neil

    Shame Don’t Trust The B in Apt. 23 wasn’t adjusted up even 0.1

  • richard

    boomtown is the greatest show ever!
