    Ok I will leave you to your delusions about Flop Factor creating stars. This website is about ratings though and The Voice is SLAUGHTERING Flop Factor! ;-)

    I 100% agree with you…hahahahahaha

    I’m surprised Chicago Fire stayed over 7 million viewers, I thought for sure it was going down and I thought the demo would sink to 2.1 but it held up well. It literally almost had control of the hour in the demo.

    Very huge for Whitney to do good.

    Nashville didn’t do too bad either, with ABC having more problems with 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort there’s no time to worry just yet fans.

    I just read on Dealine that Chicago Fire just got a back 9 order for a full season. Even though I haven’t watched CF congrats to fans of the show. Granted it could use a stronger lead in than the aging SVU.

    Good to know, thanks! I’m really curious to see how much of the Voice boost it can hold onto nxt week. You’re right, it could definitely use a better lead in. This week’s numbers prove that.

    OT, but… can someone tell me why when I hover the cursor over the links on the right the link URL comes up as http://feedproxy.google.com/tvbythenumbers/ etc… ?

    Do I have a virus?

    I don’t think it has happened before. I mean, all of the links on the right come up like that first part of the URL.

    Thank you BG!

    Nice to know.

    “The Neighbors” is not garnishing huge numbers, but the little show is keeping up. The episode last night wasn’t the funniest, but it’s always fun to watch. The public announcement at the end of the show was weird, and appeared to be a segment to fill in the last 30 seconds of the show.

    It appears “The Voice” is on four days a week now, giving NBC great numbers. Hopefully people won’t get tired of it.

    Every network had a pretty good night besides FOX, but 2.6 is still decent against The Voice. ABC had an amazing night. The Middle is up even against Voice and X Factor. The Neighbors while the lowest rated comedy in the block, it is doing decent. Modern Family did great rebounding from Halloween, and it was a great ep last night. Suburgatory shot up to season highs! I hope it can go into the 3s in the coming weeks. I hope the Thanksgiving episodes hit highs (next week?). Nashville up and at 2.0 again which is good for ABC at 10 pm right now, will get a full season. The CW Wednesdays are stellar! Chicago Fire got a decent bump from The Voice, let’s see how it does next week. I’m very interested to see how The Voice will do in it’s second cycle this season, I think NBC is wearing it out, and people are getting tired especially come March, and heck next fall!

    Arrow was awesome last night. Super Natural was really good too. I really look forward to Wednesday nights now because of Arrow and Super Natural. Great to see them both up this week.

    It’s too bad NBC is still too weak as a network that they couldn’t afford to pit The Voice against Flop Factor all season long. It would have prevented Flop Factor from getting a 3rd season made Simon Cowell poop his pants!!

  • ken

    Just found out that CF will have the full 22 episodes. That’s good news. The storylines are numerous and are getting more involved and suspenseful. This is panning out to be NBC’s BEST drama.

  • Eric_Philly

    Gorgeous numbers from Arrow and Supernatural… which should have ended 3 seasons ago. I still watch it… just saying.

    x factor fans: the only reason you have heard of these “stars” the x factor usa has produced is cuz you watch the show :) a true star is when someone hasn’t watched the show and has still heard of the contestants…such as carrie underwood and kelly clarkson…the x factor usa and the voice has not had any of their contestants become stars :)

    The Voice UK has just started! It’s only their season 1!
    What are you talking about?
    It hasn’t run for as long as The X Factor UK!

  • bluejay72

    @FLOP FACTOR fans!

    Hahaha!!! Keep dreaming! Make it sound as though FLOP FACTOR is doing very well this season. Your cheap marketing about its little “achievements” on this site will never catapult your humiliating show in the ratings!

    The new winner of FLOP FACTOR will hardly even be noticed by the American market since this early, almost nobody is watching the show!

    Poor FLOP FACTOR!!!~ :)

  • bluejay72


    Your name speak for yourself! Haha! :D
    You’re saying that ratings are not important because you can’t accept that FLOP FACTOR flopping. Otherwise, you would have been celebrating here, you monkey!

    Accept it! Nobody cares to watch your stupid show. I give it to you–it WAS successful in the UK many years ago, but in the US, please…. Nobody gives a sh*t! :) Even the UK original is slipping n the ratings so that says A LOT!!!

    NBC is too quick off the mark with decisions about Chicago Fire suggesting they want it to succeed at all costs.They give it huge advantage like putting it after Voice where it will obviously do well, and then they give a full order as if they are pleasantly surprised.

    The way a network promotes or doesnt promote shows is interesting, and what is said doesnt always translate into action. I think they have already decided Chicago Fire is a replacement for SVU.As the sites are encouraged to talk down SVU they will be encouraged to talk up Chicago Fire. Giving it a full season tells viewers its got NBC backing so its worth investing in.Talking down a show on sites suggests its on its way out and not worth investing in.

    Idolforums(A huge FLOP FACTOR fansite as well as idol) is not banning people who make fun of FLOP FACTOR ratings in favor of The Voice! LMFAO….times are desperate for them!
