    Private Pratice just seen it lowest ratings ever… No wonder why it’s cancelled!

  • RyanCanada

    ugh this makes me mad, Happy Endings is one of the best comedy’s , stupid DWTS

  • Bobby C

    I have a date with Emily Owens Tuesday nights! I love her!

  • Samunto

    I find Go On’s 2.2 abit disappointing. It should honestly be doing better than that airing after The Voice. NBC should consider a drama there.

  • Melissa


    Glad to see it dumped and attention directed elsewhere REVENGE AND SCANDAL.

    I like Scandal, but it’s a fail compared to Private Practice in its prime, and it’s after Grey’s Anatomy, so don’t use that as an excuse. Neither Revenge nor Scandal will ever approach the success of Private Practice in its prime.

    Lets not forget Grey’s was pulling 5s at the time.

  • Jim

    Older people are better judges of quality shows, thus the high number of viewers for the CBS shows.

    Poor Happy Endings :( ABC needs to make big change on this night by midseason.

    What happened to New Girl? FOX is doing so poorly this fall. Well at least they have American Idol to fall back on

    I still don’t get why NBC does not give Parenthood more episodes since that show has been steady in the ratings for all its 4 seasons. Maybe too expensive?

  • TVDude


    Thank you for the correction! I forgot about the 2.0 rating.

    Parenthood has got to be one of NBC’s most reliable shows. It’s down slightly from last season, but that’s so much better than how much further down The Office, SVU, or Parks are in terms of percentage.

  • Austin

    Parenthood is just beyond amazing.

  • Christian

    Tuesdays are gonna look quite different next year!

  • s0303

    happy emily owens didn’t adjust down…love that show…

    parenthood did better than its lead in…pretty impressive for a 10 pm show…

  • TV Addict

    Even though NBC is down, it’s still ahead. Though the Fox comedies might give it a run for its money from 9-10.

    More Jedi Mind Tricks…

    Our Live+SD ratings are down, so lets ignore them and focus on the Live+7


    By the way,

    the people that are watching now are older than ever…


    Per Nielsen, the Peacock is currently serving a median age of 47.8 years, down 2 percent versus the first two weeks of 2011-12. Already the oldest-skewing broadcast net, CBS has aged up two-and-a-half years with a median age of 57.8, while ABC has added nearly two years to its median age (55.3, up from 53.4). Fox has also grown a bit longer in the tooth, aging one-and-a-half years to 43.3.


    Season to date, there are eight broadcast series that boast a median age of 60 years or greater; seven of these are on the CBS prime-time schedule. These include: Made in Jersey (63.6 years), Blue Bloods (62.6), CSI: New York (62.3), Vegas (60.7), 60 Minutes (60.5), The Good Wife (60.4) and The Mentalist (60.3). ABC’s Dancing With the Stars is the only other broadcast series to surpass the Diamond Jubilee mark, as the performance and results shows average a median age of 61.1 years.

    On the other side of the age continuum, Fox has bragging rights to broadcast’s youngest-skewing series, thanks to its Animation Domination lineup and Tuesday comedy block. American Dad is the dewiest show on the dial, with a median age of 29.5 years, while Family Guy (30.9), Bob’s Burgers (31.6), The Simpsons (33.4), New Girl (34.3), The Mindy Project (35.6) and Ben and Kate (37.1) are in no danger of scraping against the upper ceiling of the demo.

    lol at everybody who was celebrating in the previous post Flop of Dixies’ season high ratings, only to later be adjusted down XD

  • Doug

    @Melissa – PP in its prime was only ever drawing low 3s. I wouldn’t tout that as some standard of success.

  • SarahL

    Darn, The Mindy Project dipped. Not good.

  • SarahL

    The Mindy Project was such a good episode too. Mindy and Danny were hilarious. I loved that she won him and he went running out the exam room. I could not stop laughing when she called herself, “Beyonce Pad Thai” and told him to get his eyes to her breast.

  • Christina

    I am a fan of tsc… it was my favorite new show the cw had on last year, and I would have rather had them cancel hod and ringer for it, but sometimes i wish it would come back for one more season just to show people that the ratings would still be horrible and shut all the complainers and batb bashers up

  • BigBrotherFan


    Yeah and alot of shows where pulling 3’s too in 2007 and 2008 so…Heck even Glee was in 09 and 10. It was favored by ABC far too long and much more other QUALITY shows fell victim because of that reason. The show has been on the air 3 years too long! Glad to see it fall where it should of been all along and taken off the air!
