    Go On still #1 comedy :) Yay New Normal didn’t adjust down and The Voice is up woo!

  • CrimTV

    By #1 comedy I mean #1 on NBC

  • rob60990

    Yay Shark Tank. :D

  • Raykov

    Parenthood is doing great this season – outgrowing its lead-in in both viewers and 18-49 demo :)


    Shark Tank went up and did about what it does on Friday. Honestly I will say Shark Tank should stay on Friday nights where its been a sleeper. Its a great Friday show, I enjoy it on that night. I really enjoy ABC Friday’s with comedies, Tank and 20/20. Why change a good night for ABC?

    Thats awesome the Voice went up in ratings. We should see some bigger numbers come finale night.

    I hope NBC renews Parenthood which builds out of New Normal and it should get a fifth season. That show makes u sad and weep at the same time.

    CW will renew Hart of Dixie. Its doing better numbers then the Ringer did which was a much more expensive show.

  • CrimTV

    The funny thing is, The CW cancels Emily Owens with 0.4’s but Hart of Dixie is safer with only one tenth higher!

  • Ralph Hartman

    By these numbers Sons of Anarchy is the tied for the 4th highest 18-49 rating of the night. That’s pretty impressive!

  • Clarke

    Pretty good for Shark Tank but I am still surprised it couldn’t manage over a 2.0. The show works best on fridays and ABC should keep it that way.

    Yikes at those CW numbers. EM:MD doesn’t look so bad, considering it is only one tenth under HOD. CW needs to just focus on sci/fi and fantasy shows and get rid of 90210 and HOD.

  • Roswell

    @jonnysbro… This time last year ringer was getting 0.8-0.6’s so you are wrong

  • Ricky K

    Shark Tank is a great Friday reality show… not serialized so you can come in at anytime, kid-friendly, etc.,

    I hope it stays put.

  • Oliver

    NBC should give Parenthood a full season next season. Its ratings deserve it plus it’ll give the show enough episodes for syndication.

    Parenthood continues to confound expectations. I remember when Bill Gorman predicted it to be the first show to be pulled from the air!

  • DryedMangoez

    Yay for Parenthood always building on New Normal. Nice, dedicated audience they have.

  • cass rowland

    i fell so sorry for dont trust the b

  • CenterGravity

    Victoria wasn’t very secretive last night.

  • david

    Shark Tank did good and i thought it was a good episode. A couple of the ideas were not so good on the show though. Go On seems to be stable in the mid twos so, that is good. Parent Hood is a really good show and good to see it doing good and i hope it gets a full season too. Great to see Lora Lie back on TV again.

    It’s funny how people say Hart of Dixie is going to be renewed over Beauty and the Beast. The CW’s scripted average is currently a 0.7. Hart of Dixie is currently averaging a 0.6, which is below the network’s scripted average; in addition, the average will continue to fall because it hasn’t matched its average in 3 weeks. According to my calculations, if it receives a 0.5 or below the next two telecasts (which it surely will), the average will drop to a 0.5.

    Beauty and the Beast, on the other hand, is currently averaging a 0.7, which is equal to the network’s scripted average. It will probably fall unless it gets more 0.7s (which is plausible), but according to my calculations, if the show continues to pull 0.6s (which it probably will, because it never dropped below that), then the average will stay at a 0.7 for it least four more telecasts.

    So two telecasts from now, it is almost certain that Beauty and the Beast will still be averaging a 0.7—equal to The CW’s scripted average, while Hart of Dixie will have dropped to an average of 0.5. Beauty and the Beast is the logical pick for renewal with these numbers.

    I don’t know about numbers or anything and I’m not too worried about it anyways but I’m pretty damn happy about The Voice! Killing it!

  • Honey Badger

    CW will renew Hart Of Dixie.
    Hart Of Dixie is not afraid of the Cancellation Bear, or any of you doubters.
    The mayor of Bluebell has a pet alligator named Burt Reynolds, this would not be good for Cancellation Bear.
    It would be in the best interest of Cancellation Bear to go after easier targets.
    Besides, the Cancellation Bear has had it fill of Doctors this year: Mob Doctor, Emily Owens MD, Animal Practice and others

    :) :) :)

    Glad Shark Tank adjusted up- a 1.8 is pretty solid for it- and, I believe, higher than it scored on Tuesdays back in 2009 (understandable, sine it’s grown since then).

  • Honey Badger

    CW will renew Hart Of Dixie for 2 more seasons. It does well in a time slot against the top rated shows on TV. CW could not find a show to do better in this time slot.
    And it will get a syndication deal.
    Plus it is the best show, with the best actors on television.
