    Yah right, HOD is steady… steadily FLOP in the ratings!

  • Kyle R

    I think New Girl will kind of be like Scrubs. It’s not a total hit, but its ratings won’t justify cancellation, so it just stays on the air for eight seasons. Like Scrubs. Scrubs only had eight seasons. There was no ninth season of Scrubs. They ended it when they should have, at eight.

    Very impressed with Raising Hope staying consistent up against stiff competition from The Voice and NCIS. Martha Plimpton has been hilarious this season. In my opinion, it is the funniest comedy of the night for FOX. If it were after New Girl, I feel it would be able to beat The New Normal.

    Is this the closest NCIS has been to The Voice this season?

    NBC’s 10 pm is doing relatively well.

    Revolution is a hit.
    Parenthood beats New Normal.
    Chicago Fire outnumbers SVU.

    If your 10 pm drama beats its lead-in, and the latter isn’t a complete disaster, that’s good.

    Next stop: Rock Center.

    @Kyle R,

    I highly doubt New Girl makes it to 8 seasons…

    PS Raising Hope only 0.5 away from “hit series” New Girl is impressive.

    FOX’s The Middle?

    WOW, NCIS is amazing. After lasr week drop the ratings are up and viewership of 20 million is giant and it’s already 10th season. “Vegas” still doing badly – probably will be cancelled by end of May 2013.

    I’m so glad Go On finally bounced back! I’ve been enjoying it!
    And so New Girl! 2.3 is in pair with the lowest rating last season, but it’s up from last week so gotta be happy about it. It’s obviously going to get renew (and so next year, as it’ll be in sydication zone), I just hope it can go back to high 2s (and coexist with Go On of course).
    As for Raising Hope, while I don’t watch, 1.8 is a terrific rating, fans should be happy that the show still has pulse, because in the current state of FOX it could still be renewed even without syndication, and that will be important next year at the time for renewal

    I think there had to have been at least one week where it beat the Voice outright, but I may be mistaken. Great point on the NBC 10PM shows, by the way. That’s been one of their most notable improvements–funnily enough while ABC and CBS have both floundered. :D

  • Ben

    Great ratings for NCIS. Good ratings for NCIS: Los Angeles. Vegas’ days are numbered.

  • CG

    @ragincajun: I’m not sure what your comments have to do with my proposed schedule changes.

    I think they should move the low-rated Vegas to Fridays at 8:00 because it would be a better fit with the other older-skewing shows on that night (CSI:NY, Blue Bloods).

    That would leave Undercover Boss high and dry, but that show would probably work well after the other reality programs (60 Minutes and The Amazing Race) on Sundays. Pushing The Good Wife to 10:00 (or later after NFL) wouldn’t hurt it all that much since it seems to be living more on reviews than ratings these days anyway.

    This would then be a great chance to put The Mentalist in a better position after the CBS comedies on Monday, since it’s a light-hearted drama that would probably play well there. And it’s been increasing ratings following The Good Wife even in its dreadful schedule position, sometimes near midnight, on Sundays — proving the show sill has legs despite the awful time slot.

    Moving The Mentalist to Monday at 10:00 would then be a perfect opportunity to put Hawaii Five-O at 10:00 on Tuesdays, after the similarly themed NCIS shows, and thus completing the shuffle.


    As NCIS gets closer to the Voice, RH bumps up as well! YAY RH & go CBS!

  • MattFitz

    Senor Chsang you are Wrong The stupid ncis has not beat the voice this season in the demo at all! wishful thinking and as the finals heat up it will sink behind farther in demo it has 20mill viewers and 3.6 demo? thats pretty pathetic unless you are the makers of boner pills and gertal cbs is definately the old peoples network not impressed at all that the same core group who voted for the losing presidential candidate like some show with over the hill mark harmon based on bs if there was that much crime in our navy we would be up the vaunted s creek w/o a paddle Old people dont like modern music so they will never watch voice but will watch crime procedurals no matter how lame

  • Cindy Lou

    CW should have kept Secret Circle. Emily Owens has NO CHANCE! HOD is a greatg show and the ONLY medical show needed on CW!!!

    YES, I am still bitter SC was a great show and HOD should have stayed on Monday with Gossip Girl…

  • LOL

  • LOL

  • LOL


  • LOL

    Finally! 2014 Superbowl

  • LOL

    I’ll complete the 100th comment by saying Justin121 makes a fine point. NBC’s Revolution is doing stunningly well which is great because the finale was amazing.

    Parenthood & Chicago Fire are doing relatively well, even though I think CF will not be renewed.
