    That Football excuse is a crappy one.
    Football was there when CSI Miami was on Mondays. And Revolution is a male show too . None of those got affected by Football.
    And if that was true , people would be dvr H5o to watch later, and it is not happening, When u look at the list of the most CBS dvr shows, H50 is not one of those shows.

    And H50 is not a cheap show. All those guest starts week after week. Do u think they fly Economy , eat in Burger King and stay in cheap motels there? U can add those expenses to the cast’s salaries, and the result is a expensive show.

    WOW @ Gossip Girl! I’ve never watched the show but i’m kinda proud of it now haha

    interested to see what the series finale will get next week…you guys should make a poll.

    I’m gonna put my money down on a .7/.8 with 1.25-1.50 million viewers

  • oleg

    Absolutely stunned Gossip Girl was adjusted up!
    And sad at the same time. Can’t believe my favorite show on air is ending ;~

  • AlexFan

    @Tim, since we don’t know how much they pay the guest Stars ,we can’t argue that point. One of #H50 biggest sponsors is Hilton Hawaiian Village where I am sure they get a great rate. As for the cost of making the show it probably can’t be any more than the big bucks they had to shell out for David Caruso. Also Hawaiian Airlines is another big sponsor so I am sure they get good rates for the flights. I am sure a star would take a smaller salary to get a free trip to Hawaii than a trip to say L.A. These are not facts of course but guesses the same as yours. That being said I still respect your right to have your opinion.

  • peter

    voice-less mondays will bring how i met your mother to 4.0 ratings. is there gonna be a new the voice season after christmas?

  • Jarrod

    I love 90210 so much in regards to it’s ratings. They’ve been so inconsistent this season. I really hope The Carrie Diaries pushes up the ratings next year. #90210ForFullSeasonPickUp

    @Tim, True, football has always been popular but it’s become a bigger phenomenon than it’s ever been. I think MNF’s audience has grown considerably.

    There are folks comparing H50 against Castle and Revolution, and others comparing it against the other CBS dramas. So the football equation is applicable when comparing against the audience sizes for the CBS dramas.

  • Keena

    HFO has grown week by week, I’m sure CBS is more than happy with that. And the DVR ratings are among tops so, stop it with hate.

    Castle, which I also watch, get the same audience. Stop it with the hate.

  • s0303

    2 broke girls second episode went up in the demo, but down in total viewers…kind of weird…

  • POIFanatic

    With absolutely no competition, H50 is at 2.5. Truly unimpressive.

    LOL at GG reaching 0.6 in demo. Atleast it might go out with a (relative) “bang”.

  • eridapo

    I’m nor worried about H50. Itt is currently the best option CBS has given the slot and other shows in its lineup, but lets be honest a 2.5 and less than 10M viewers on a night without competition has to be disappointing. Not only that it also benefited from a better lead-in support.

    Like in College Football H50 won, but it failed to impressed.

  • eridapo

    @ Overdamoon

    H50 and all other Monday at 10PM shows compete against football every week during the fall. What people mean when they say no competition is that in the absence of Revolution and Castle people expected H50 to hit a 3.0. Since it didn’t do that, they are not impressed by those numbers since it is only 2/10s higher than it was last week.

  • poweranimals

    Wow.. Even GG is ranking higher than BATB now? That sucks.

  • Joe

    2 Broke girls is slaying!

  • easy

    Can’t spin this, Five-0 got a good score of 2.5, and has been climbing even with RVN at full strength in it’s finally. B&B is still the 2nd highest new show for the CW, with Kreuk, it has a good chance for a 2nd season.

    Looks good for these shows…congrats…:)

  • larrywitness

    There is no competion on Monday night at 10:00. Thats why a show like revolution can win every week. H50 is sinking and castle sunk years ago. Castle jumped the shark years ago and ratings have been awfull. H50 dropping badly this year. overall Monday at 10:00 is bad.

  • thesnowleopard

    So, Gossip Girl finally got a final season boost. Sure took long enough.

  • ateofi

    Larrywittness, “Revolution” was winning thanks to huge lead-in from “The voice”. We all know that. This show would never stand on its own. Also, H50 may be sinking as you say, but then the rest of the 10 pm show (except CSI and “Elementary”) have sunk already with ratings below 2.0 – and they are mostly new shows.

  • POIFanatic

    @easy: Nobody thinks like that since Revolution, being sci-fi and by past history, was the show that was supposed to sink, but its not. Against Revolution, H50 nay never win.

    @ateofi: The Voice has helped, but that’s nonsense and delusional. Taking DVR into account, Revolution gets between 4.4+ every week and comes close to The Voice dvr+live ratings every single time. Also, its the highest rated new show anyway. The show portrays true potential. After the stellar midseason finale, I’d not be surprised if it performs really well when it comes back in March.

  • Dan

    Awesome rise for Gossip Girl! I’m expecting a 0.8 for next week’s finale, but I’m hoping for a 0.9 or hopefully even a whole point. LMAO at Gossip Girl beating HoD, B&tB, EOMD and Nikita!
