    “We will see lower ratings for Castle later this season.”

    We will see lower ratings for [any show name] later this season, is just about as obvious a “prediction” as can possibly be made.

    @Bill
    you mean even lower rating for nikita?

  • sara

    Mob Doctor .8 and 3.01
    House final season 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.14 million total viewers. And world wide distribution.

    What Fox genius didn’t bother calling David Shore?

    As soon as I write “All shows decline from the fall through the spring”, someone with OCD will find a show that, in fact, didn’t, so let’s get things started.

    All shows decline from the fall through the spring.

    Honestly, the only one I truly have an issue with is Sweets. Because HH & Co keep putting him in situation where he doesn’t need to be (i.e. staying with B&B).

    That said, last night was perfect.

  • Cass rowlwland

    I heard that people were boycotting abc because of their soaps could that be the reason ratings are down I don’t know

  • Kangarookeeper

    Why the hell was V cancelled when its ratings turned around and were up again?

  • Marge

    @Methix

    Agreed.

    Not sure what @Lena’s been on but H50 will be lucky to finish this season and get one more just to cover the syndication. A 2.1 is no winner.

    @Bill

    I don’t have OCD (well maybe I do) but last year Person of Interest:
    First 6 episodes: avg 2.77
    Last 6 episodes: avg 2.85

    Scanning over evertyhing else, that’s about it. Of course your general point is correct as on average shows decline around 20-30% (just spitballing a number – I do not know and am not going to figure it out.)

    It wasn’t. ABC renewed it for a second season, which spent the entire time in the 1.7 to 2.1 range (for comparison, four of ABC’s five renewals averaged a 2.7 or better and the fifth was the midseason replacement Body of Proof at 2.3).

    This is misleading. It makes sense that some shows come back with level ratings because they get increased advertisement for those return episodes. That doesn’t mean the hiatus did them no harm. It just means that the hiatus damage was offset by the new promotion. And sure enough, you then see ratings declines after the effects of that extra promotion wear off.

    If you look at analyses of the effect of the writers strike on shows and their ratings, that extended hiatus did a number on many of them. And when several of your shows, especially in the same genre, suffer major ratings decline following a long hiatus, to the point of being canceled, I think that’s something to look into.

    Now, sure, some shows do better, but that’s because they found a loyal audience that remembered them through the hiatus. John made a good point about TWD being supported by the fandom from ancillary media like the original comic. Supernatural’s long twilight is probably helped by its success in syndication. Many of its most devoted current fans have come in from season five or even later and caught up on TNT, Netflix and DVD. The same thing happened to Law&Order. First, it had a great syndicated run on A&E back in the 90s and then it had a great run on TNT.

    But Revolution isn’t an older show in syndication. It isn’t adapted from other popular media. It doesn’t seem to have grabbed a medium-but-steady audience on a slow night like Grimm. It’s a big show on a competitive night with great expectations for its ratings. And hiatuses don’t seem to have done recent sci-fi shows with big budgets very much good.

    People said that last season, even when ABC’s ratings were up.

    @Bill Gorman
    Not to mention that if a show discovers its ratings floor early in the season, it’s not exactly a great accomplishment that it manages to remain on that floor in the spring.

    @Bill,

    Didn’t Person of Interest increase in the spring last year? ;)

  • Cass rowlwland

    Maybe castle can do better when it will have the bachelor in January plus the syndication deals I get paranoid

    And sure enough, you then see ratings declines after the effects of that extra promotion wear off.

    If a show was declining prior to going on a hiatus and then it continues to decline when it returns, you can’t attribute that decline to the hiatus.

    If you look at analyses of the effect of the writers strike on shows and their ratings

    That is completely different. Most of the time when a network schedules a long in-season hiatus, it involves a cliffhanger to keep the audience hooked for the return. Obviously in the case of a writer’s strike, that is impossible.

    People keep saying the Castle is in last place in its time slot, but look at the raw numbers, third highest rated show of the night, pretty much EVERY week. The show is solid for ABC… the critics like it, it gets a huge audience (though not always the age range they want), there’s books, there’s syndication, all of the seasons are available on DVD, heck… there’s Castle Coffee. Yes, there is Castle Coffee. When you take into account that ABC owns the show as well (its produced in-house, it helps to keep costs down), its really a no-brainer. It will probably continue for a few more years… I expect that Season 7 will be the last (I hate to see it go as its my favorite show on TV, but 7 seasons has been talked about in interviews)… and when you look at the other shows ABC has debuted this year, like “Last Resort”, which is all but cancelled, Castle should be around for a while longer. And ABC just ordered an additional episode for the season… not a script, an episode. Actions, not words folks.

    All shows decline from the fall through the spring.

    Off the top of my head – House S1, House S2, House S3, Grey’s Anatomy S2, Desperate Housewives S1, Glee S1, CSI: S1…

    I don’t count though… if I had OCD I would have found a dozen more! ;)

  • eridapo

    @ Jason…

    What counts is the 18-49 demo, but some networks also look at the 25-54 numbers. When you do that Castle’s performance improves substantially. It usually gains almost 9/10s of a point whereas other ABC shows only get a modest 6/10s lift.
