    ‘and in the End’ edit button, please.

    There will never be a comment-editing feature on this site.


    Why is the 25-54 age demographic not as important as the 18-49 demographic? It targets almost all of the audience that is included in the 18-49 demographic.

    Because the 18–49 demographic also includes 18–34-year-olds, which is a huge demographic for advertisers. Not only does the 25–54 demographic not contain 18–34-year-olds, but it also includes viewers older than 49, which are rarely a target.

    That is so TRUE! If 21 million people watch your show that means your show is really good, even the best no doubt about this. People NEVER LIA. We are not ads or money or network shareholders. Congratulations to ncis. We must be honest and give what winners diserve. Its like election and popular vote. You can’t winn presidensy without popular vote but if you lose popular vote lose credibility to be president.

    ps ncis la can go 5th even 6th CBS drama after all. What a failing.

    If fox are smart they will put once AI on tuesday at 8 pm 1 hour to boost NG.

    how many people are you expect view this website yesterday really? lets just say 30000, and among these 30000, lets just say generously 1/5 actually care go on, so 6000 people

    and we say 1000 knew go on was new last night because they are big big fan, leave 5000 people who didn’t watch last night go on because they thought its a repeat

    and do you expect 5000 people will make any differences rating wise??

    so dont blame anyone working for this site

    1.9 is the 2nd biggest rating ever for Off Their Rockers. Not bad.

  • Wetty Bhite

    @ hope

    Mico didn’t blame anyone, he or she was just asking. It was probably scheduled wrong on a number of TV guides, not just the one on here.

  • lll

    By NBC standards, Betty White’s Off their Rockers is a smash hit!

  • Nick

    Betty white did AMAZING!!!

  • forg

    Repeats of MF and The Middle did fine considering it’s not their timeslots. HE got a little boost, looks like it needs to follow a fellow comedy to perform a little better

  • david

    Great for Parenthood as allways. I did not think Go on was new last night iether for the same reason given above too. I hope more people watch it next week. Its a funny show.

  • Bitter Ringer Fan

    I also missed last night episodes of both Go On and The New Normal because it didn’t appear as new episodes. I was surprised when later checking their FB pages they were talking about the new episodes. I wonder in how many sites they put the same wrong schedule? i mean the ones in charge of doing it of course. Anyway I’m still shocked about that 1.5 T_T

  • ILoveSitcoms

    No one has ever asked me what show I watch, so no, the Go On/New Normal fake out didn’t get me but it’s possible it did affect viewership. Isn’t Zap2It used on some PVR services?

    “@ Bill

    Why did you not have Go On and The New Normal as *new* for last night???”

    Our TV schedule grid/data comes from Tribune Media Services, and their data is quite widely used online, and (if anyone recalls what they are, printed newspapers). We have no control over the schedule data.

    “how many people are you expect view this website yesterday really? lets just say 30000, and among these 30000, lets just say generously 1/5 actually care go on, so 6000 people”

    Google had us at 95,000 unique visitors yesterday, but you’re right that our viewership vs. the ratings of a broadcast TV show is tiny, tiny.

  • MisterJ

    So much for all the haters who’ve commented that NCIS and NCISLA are on their way down. Wow, that’s a LOT of viewers (and both above 3.0)

  • John

    Lmao at all the old hags tuning into NCIS. Like of there was nothing better else on.

  • Nick

    Off Their Rockers did well. I wonder why the hike at 8:30.

    Go On and TNN didn’t do THAT bad, with the mixup factored in. Did it affect the guides on the TV as well, or just online?
    Good that TNN didn’t fall as much as Go On.

  • Networkman

    I wish FOX would simply give up on the idea of a two hour comedy block and place Raising Hope behind New Girl once more. Both shows are gaining the same amount of viewers. Also the hour would see a better demo rating. I feel Raising Hope would be able to garner at least 1.9 behind New Girl. Repeats of Bones or two animated programs would do fine in the 8pm hour.

    NBC would be stupid not to renew parenthood for a full season.. Scripted shows on nbc thursdays and now tuesday nights are pathetic. I will leave Wednesday alone, SVU is pretty stable for a veteran show and does good in syndication. Chicago Fire well thats another story.. Unless the uptrend continues the show is pretty average by scripted nbc averages….
