    Funny at 10pm, more viewers less 18-49 for all of them

  • Networkman

    While H5O has rebounded a bit from its premiere, I am also concerned about its viewership. 2.0 demo is fine for 10pm but out of all the other 10pm shows on CBS it is garnering the least amount of audience. It is not even able to grow out of Mike & Molly. I would like to see at least 9 million viewers with the 2.0 demo. Revolution is really hurting H5O this year. CBS is going to have to look into counterprogramming.

    Last night’s Revolution was an example of all that’s wrong with the show. They spent the entire show on yet another pointless rescue of some pointless kids. The alleged “big reveal” proved to be nothing of the sort. Sure, we found out that Ben and his crew were responsible for the tech that knocked out the electricity. Big deal – we knew that! What we don’t know is HOW! That the DoD was involved comes as little surprise. That the DoD guy is the guy holding Grace is no big surprise, either, once he was introduced as an obvious bad guy.

    In short – nothing happened. Yet another pointless episode whose sole purpose is to drag out the fact that the writers really have no clue where they’re going with this show. They have no plausible explanation – even a science-fiction one – as to how the electricity went off – because there isn’t one.

    Anyone notice the stupid bit when Ben turned off the electricity and the computers went off – and then he turned it back on and the computers resumed right where they left off. Guys, computers don’t do that! Cut off the electricity and they go down (unless they have an uninterruptible power supply installed – and that would have failed when Ben tripped his technology); then they have to reboot. They don’t resume where they left off. The only explanation would be that Ben’s gadget somehow “freezes” electricity rather than removing it – which I imagine would totally violate any number of basic physical laws involving conservation of energy.

    Worse – is anyone getting as tired of the lead girl as I am? She’s an uncontrolled emotional wreck – and not a particularly good actress, although she isn’t terrible. I laughed at Billy’s line “Isn’t it irritating when a dumb kid talks back at you?” The character is annoying as hell.

    Oh, well, moving on…

    Castle on the other hand was awesome last night! First the “that Joss Whedon show” line which was hilarious! Then Molly Quinn’s awesomely hot outfit! :-) “She’s a grown woman.” Oh, yeah! :-) One of the best episodes yet.

    @Richard Steven Hack

    Completely agree with you. There is no reason to watch this anymore. Previously I at least had hope this show would improve as we get deeper and deeper into the mythology. But there’s hardly anything happening or the reveal seems to be something interesting.
    Lead actress is a disaster. I am close to giving up on this show. I am still watching this show only for Kripke.

    The FLOP FACTOR fans are jumping around!!! :)

    Hahaha!!! Even with The Voice’s drop, it’s still above 4 and owning the night trampling its competition. :)

    FLOP FACTOR could only dream of those numbers!!!~ :)
    The deluded FLOP FACTOR fans still believe that their show is great.
    How PATHETIC… Really pitiful…

  • One Directioner

    Big One Direction fan here but comparing the 2 singing shows, I have to say that The Voice is more watchable. They’re showcasing raw talent in authentic music.

    In contrast, The X FactorUSA is more into production rather than the quality of talent. It just turns me off. It’s a far cry from the UK version where my beloved boys came from.

    So, in this war, I’ll go with the true winner… The Voice!
    The ratings here say a lot.

  • ICBBsFuture

    I don’t know but the 4 Judges/Coaches in The Voice actually sound like they know what they’re talking about and use a lot of music words where as the X-Factor judges kinda suck. The only one I like is Demi. Britney only knows how to say “I loved you and what you’re wearing” yeah awesome judge right there!

  • Tihomir

    Revolution will continue to fall.

  • POIFanatic

    Revolution is still the highest rated new show among all the networks and the highest rated show at 10pm on any day. Not too worried. People will be back after they see the last episode.

  • storyteller

    Revolution is just bad. Been hanging in there hoping it’ll pick up but each week the story gets more ludicrous and the acting is lacklustre at best. Not surprised more and more people are tuning out. I’m done with it myself.

  • John

    @Richard Steven Hack.

    Couldn’t agree more. I’ve been more patient with Revolution than a lot of other people have. My sister makes fun of me for watching it every time I talk to her (I counter that she watches Beauty and the Beast). But I think I’m out. The most recent episode was just terrible. Prior to this, I’ve been describing it as a poor man’s Lost, since it has a similar structure with the flashbacks. Now, I think I have to downgrade it to a Homeless Man’s Lost. Giancarlo Esposito and Elizabeth Mitchell just aren’t enough anymore.

  • Dean

    I don’t get the Revolution hate. People are impatient. I watch it like I watch a cable show. It progresses its story organically. The actors are terrific and the writing is improving. The action is the best on tv right now. The show is actually getting really good. Hope it improves next week.

  • bk109

    ‘the actors are terrific’?! Sorry, but most of them are about as interesting and charming as two-by-fours(the only characters on the show I somewhat care about are Miles,Aaron and to some extent – Tom). And no offence to miss Spiridakos, but by God,I want to dropkick the TV every time she opens her mouth or tries to act. Hell,the only real highlight of recent episodes for me was when he just told her to shut up :)
    Either way, whether I like it or not is moot – I don’t want it to fail,because plenty of people seem to enjoy it, but I’m concerned that NBC are making a big mistake with such a long hiatus – same as the Event or FlashForward.
    Off-topic – I wonder what will people send NBC in the event of a cancellation – batteries or musket-shaped lighters XD

  • Baha Amro

    What! Castle down! What does people want more of a show? Fun, action and wit

  • Kavyn

    I’m liking Revolution, but I can’t stand Aaron’s character.

  • Dean

    bk109: I was referring to the actors portraying Neville, Miles, Rachel, Randall, Jeremy when I said terrific actors.
    Tracy is the only one I didn’t like before. She’s getting better though. I thought she was absolutely awesome in the last episode.
    Haha, that scene was hilarious. The real highlight to me was the way Miles and the others saw the lighthouse working.

  • scifi

    If you hate the specific actor, it means he/she performs very well. This is an axiom, if you don’t know.

  • Ateofi

    Revolution” is definitely a phenomenon (whether we like it or not) you don’t see very often. It was intensively advertised and has very strong lead-in without which it would never achieve such high ratings. NBC really did good job here as opposed to CBS (some heads should roll for ruining monday night schedule and almost killing H50). It just pains to me to see these low numbers for H50 – this show had such ratings last year with reruns! Still, when we look at the other ten p.m. ratings, it looks like other shows struggle as well. Elementary (which I enjoy very much) is already down to a 2.4 and on a downward trend week to week. Vegas doing pretty badly (1.6 in the demo) – and both are without the competition like Revolution. Then you’ve got The Mentalist seriously under-performing too. The only ten pm CBS show that is holding up right now is CSI. ABC has similar problem, their ten pm shows are in the 1.7-2.1 range.
    We have significant drop in the ten pm ratings this year across the board compared to last year.

    Revolution, with the hype, should have done better.

  • POIFanatic

    @Richard: (I’ve to reply to this. There are many logical mistakes in your comment)

    “The alleged “big reveal” proved to be nothing of the sort. Sure, we found out that Ben and his crew were responsible for the tech that knocked out the electricity.”

    Are you sure? People were saying aliens did it. That some form of alien tech suppressed electricity all over the world even after watching so many episodes. Just goes to show how dumb some people are. It wasn’t a revelation for me, but it had to be shown. They did it well.

    “What we don’t know is HOW! That the DoD was involved comes as little surprise. That the DoD guy is the guy holding Grace is no big surprise, either, once he was introduced as an obvious bad guy.”

    The HOW is the real mystery for anyone who can think for themselves. They obviously showed us who the DoD guy was supposed to be from the ‘last time on Revolution’ and yet you think it was a supposed to be a ‘revelation’. I don’t quite understand the logic. It’d be a true revelation if they didn’t show Randall in the recap. Imo, it was satisfyingly done with his chilling – “I just want us to be friends”.

    “In short – nothing happened.”

    So, audience now knowing about the exact people involved in creating the tech, Miles learning the truth, while Charlie was branded with the Monroe sign like an animal and Monroe obtaining information about the possible location of a pendant from the scientist was nothing?

    “They have no plausible explanation – even a science-fiction one – as to how the electricity went off.”

    So, how do you think they can’t come up with a fictional plausible explanation? Please, do expand on this since I thought the fictional world meant it only needed to obey the rules of the world its set in and not our reality. Or have you forgotten about EMP’s which are quite real and fries the electronics and this could well be a superior and more efficient version of them.

    “I imagine would totally violate any number of basic physical laws involving conservation of energy.”

    Again, you’re bringing in our world setting to a fictional world. You can’t go and argue Minority Report, Transformers, Lord of The Rings, etc can’t be realistic because it doesn’t follow the rules of our world and the science which we understand.
