    “Michael Madsen has booked a two-episode arc on Fox’s The Mob Doctor, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.”

    Mob Doc still hasn’t shut down production.

    Sony is definitely a glass half full kind of production company! ;)

    It looks like FOX is actually planning on airing the 13 episodes that they ordered.

    Arrow is gonna go up in viewers per/m , i mean come on they have deathstroke next week as if the rateing wont go up

    Chicago Fire is a fictional drama series, it’s not a documentary. And there are few, if any, professions that are accurately portrayed on TV dramas.

    Still a good night for Arrow, don’t forget alot of the Northeast is still in the dark, and here in Chicago, the Bulls were on.

    4th Week episodes for the CW since fall-2009:
    LA Complex 0.2
    Hart of Dixie 0.6
    Secret Circle 0.8
    Ringer 0.6
    Nikita 1
    Hellcats 0.9
    Life Unexpected 0.9
    Melrose Place 0.8
    Vampire Diaries 1.7

    So VD was the last CW show to hold up better than Arrow (and that wasn’t on a slightly depressed night)

    I am really liking Nashville though i agree its getting a biy soapy. But im sticking with it so i hope it can go up or at least stabilize.

  • IceCreamSunday

    I’m surprised the CW shows got what they did considering the massive power outages and the preemption. I’d say both Arrow and SPN are doing quite well.

    NBC needs a BIG shake-up on Wednesday nights and the first step in the right direction would be to STOP “DICK WOLF/Law & Order night”! L&O has been canceled for 2 1/2 years now, it’s time for NBC to move on from that same old Wed. night schtick they are using with SVU & CHICAGO FIRE.

    I partially agree with you on this, partially. NBC seems to want to dote Dick Wolf and anything he puts out there, look at Law & Order: Los Angeles, Deadline, Conviction, L&O: Trial by Jury – Wolf has a lot of clunkers out there, and I think that Chicago Fire is another one, but…

    L&O: SVU needs work, for one SVU is a 10:00PM show, moving it back an hour was a mistake it itself, SVU has a very dark subject matter weekly and 9PM is still touching family/comedy hour (I feel the same about Criminal Minds, Person of Interest, & NCIS: Los Angeles). Warren Leight is an okay writer, but Law & Order: Criminal Intent was better for him, he’s trying to write in that tone on SVU, and SVU was never “see through the eyes of the criminal”. SVU was about the police detectives & prosecutors putting these sick-minded pervers behind bars, us seeing the police/legal system at work.

    Wolf supposedly has another L&O in the works for NBC, and no doubt NBC will keep putting his shows on Wednesdays. NBC is trying to do that because it’s associated with the original Law & Order (as I do believe you stated), but I need to add that L&O and SVU, related as they are, they are two totally different series; NBC and Wolf know this, why NBC insists on this, we will never know.

    I feel SVU needs someone else running it (not Neal Baer or Leight) and it truly needs 10:00PM on any NBC night that isn’t Saturday or Thursday. SVU should move to 10:00PM on Friday or Sunday, it could work if NBC wouldn’t put it back on Tuesday.

    Dick Wolf is past his prime, I understand he wants to try new things, but sometimes it’s best to move on or stick with what you know and what’s worked which is; Miami Vice, Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU (of course), and Law & Order: Criminal Intent (which I feel USA Network prematurely ended because of LOCI’s expenses).

    Chicago Fire is a fictional drama series, it’s not a documentary. And there are few, if any, professions that are accurately portrayed on TV dramas.

    I never said it was a documentary, but Chicago Fire is dangerously following in the footsteps of that already related NBC cancel Trauma, which I do believe Chicago Fire has two of that show’s writers, I could be mistaken, but I’m going to check the credits again.

    If Wolf has the intentions to keep the series the way it is, NBC needs to just go ahead and pull it, they are anyway, but still.

    I will be awaiting the day Bill Gorman (or someone here on TV by the Numbers) to break the news “Chicago Fire Canceled by NBC”, quipping something like “let the fans light up in upset”!

    Nikita use to get a 1.0? Wow it fell hard.

  • Cyrax86

    The Neighbors might just get a pity renewal if Malibu County and the other 2 new comedies flop, which is more or less a straightforward bet at this point.

  • Jesse

    I like The Neighbors. Don’t understand all the negative reviews. Nashville is crap.

  • HGFM

    @Candy,
    NBC needs to work on both Wednesday and Thursday nights. But unless there is something amazing in their upcoming shows, they don’t have anything that can do as well as SVU against Modern Family and Criminal Minds. It may not be a great tent pole but it really is the only one they have. Now, if you have ideas on what else NBC could do on Wednesdays, please tell us.

    Moving SVU back to Tuesday at 10 is unlikely to bring up their ratings much. They are unlikely to regenerate their audience. Their live viewing numbers are down and they aren’t getting the amount of DVR viewers they used to. And Parenthood has established themselves in that slot. It would be foolish to move them.

    NBC doesn’t care about individual shows (except getting the shows they produce to syndication). They need to look at their schedule overall and decide what best suits the network. That means letting SVU take a hit if that lets Parenthood and Chicago Fire do better. “It’s the plus and the plus if the minuses are played correctly.”

  • Percysowner

    It won’t be long before Arrow dips below 3m.

    But since they only care about the demographic that isn’t an issue. Arrow is doing fine for the CW and Supernatural is doing what the network needed as well. For now the CW doesn’t have to worry about Wednesdays.

  • Kissan

    I love Nashville but I hate seeing it get those numbers. I really think they should move Nashville to Sundays at 10 after Revenge or move Scandal to Sundays at 10 and Nashville to Thursdays at 10 after Grey’s.

    “The Neighbors might just get a pity renewal”

    It’s ratings are currently in the “toss up” range. Identical to Nashville, and marginally better than Castle and Scandal.

    At current ratings levels, a renewal would hardly require pity.

    “But since they only care about the demographic that isn’t an issue. Arrow is doing fine for the CW and Supernatural is doing what the network needed as well. For now the CW doesn’t have to worry about Wednesdays.”

    Hello? Are you thinking with your brain? If the total viewers go down, so will the demo. It’s not gonna magically stay the same.

  • cros

    Last night’s Arrow episode wasn’t that good as the other first 3, and with everyhing thats been going on this week I think we shoulsnt worry yet.Looking at the tabe above, it seems almost every show took a hit last night.

    First I dont care if Vampire diaries regains its throne or not, but lets wait for Thurdsay’s ratings before saying it will. Arrow is stiil #1 in total viewers while VD has dipped from last season. TVD has a good demo, in any case just want the show to do well for themselves.

  • senor chang

    NBC’s problem last year was that they didn’t have a single show other than Grimm that had potential. Their problem this year is that almost all their new shows have potential, but they don’t have the means to support all of them.

    @Tessa

    I don’t think they bother that much with our ratings up here. Who cares what a bunch of parka wearing Canadian igloo dwellers watch?

    Well, since advertising is what drives TV … I’d assume at least parka & igloo sales companies? ;-)

    That and I’m laying the groundwork for a Fan Excuse Bingo square … “But it does well up in Canada!”
