    Jeez, so many people hating on TNN. I think it’s improved greatly, and I look forward to it. Glad to see it adjusted up.I laugh so much from the show!

  • Pete

    Against The middle & neighbours at 8:00 on Wednesday, NBC should put adult sitcoms like TNN, Whitney or new adult sitcoms.
    Go on would replace the office this fall.
    NBC should put new drama. There are too many comedies on Tuesday!!
    You can do it NBC!

  • Andy

    Fox wouldn’t change its Tuesday comedy block while NBC and ABC would change its schedule probably to drama.
    NBC should move Parenthood to 9:00 on any day not 10:00.
    It’s family drama and comedy which is well made.

  • Mary

    An NBC executive is probably grabbing another young executive by the collar and yelling “why didn’t we keep NCIS on NBC?” The the younger executive shuggs ” I don’t know, sir?”

  • Sam

    @CrimTV: “Glad to see TNN adjust up to a 1.4, only 3 tenths behind Go On. And it’s only 2/3 tenths lower than with The Voice lead-in, but Go On is like 8 tenths down”

    @GG: “New Normal is actually doing good for a NBC comedy show. AND beating ABC. I think a Season 2 is guaranteed”

    @Jenny: “Jeez, so many people hating on TNN. I think it’s improved greatly, and I look forward to it. Glad to see it adjusted up.I laugh so much from the show!”

    Very good points.

    New Girl is already over. 1 more season at the most.

    Stupid conclusions are what you get when you reach them via emotion rather than logic!

    If the younger executive studied his NBC history, he would know that JAG had terrible ratings its first season and NBC had very little space on its schedule for dramas. The show was even a bubble show on CBS in its second season, before finally taking off in seasons three and four.

    By the way, here’s what NBC looked like in 1995-96 for dramas (*renewed, HH ratings not A18-49)…

    ER – Thu 10p – 24.6*
    Law & Order – Wed 10p – 11.8*
    Homicide – Fri 10p – 9.2*
    JAG – Sat 8p/Wed 8p – 8.1
    Sisters – Sat 10p – 6.8
    seaQuest – Wed 8p(Fa) – 6.1
    Malibu Shores – 8at 8p(Sp) – 5.0

    Their lowest renewed comedy was a 10.6 and even three nights of Dateline did better than JAG.

    Had NBC renewed the show, it would have likely moved back to Saturdays (they put comedies at 8p Wednesday, leaving only 3 Sun-Fri drama slots for ER, L&O and Homicide). Saturday was a tough timeslot for dramas because CBS dominated the night and two of NBC’s new Saturday dramas that season wound up being moderately successful), so it’s unlikely JAG could have lasted more than two seasons on NBC even if it was renewed.

    New Girl was better when Jess was the main character, the guys just aren’t that interesting.

  • Mark

    The New Normal will be renewed no matter what. I highly doubt that Andrew Rannels would have left GIRLS on such a good momentum if he hadn’t knew beforehand that Murphy’s show will have a second season. Plus, TNN has been received well by critics, the LGTB associations, and the 18-49 group. The only problem here is the airing time, and I’m sure they’ll fix that next fall.

  • Mark

    @Allison: “Peoples Choice Award (…) those awards are meaningless. If people can vote as many times as they want”

    So, when HIMYM, TBBT or Modern Family win PCA, the prize rocks and shows what the audience wants. When TNN wins it, it’s just a matter of clicks. Double standard? TNN has a huge 2.0 base and if NBC cancels it they will face a huge campaign to have the show back.

    On a side note, TNN is doing really well in Latin American where it airs on Fox after Modern Family, and also pretty well in the UK, where it airs after TBBT, and has boosted E4 audience by one-third. First season has been sold to many countries. So, while it might not have the best demos, I’m sure it has a long road ahead.

    The New Normal did the same as Whitney last week and some here go out of their way defending that horrid show.

    @Ultima

    Where did you get those numbers from? Just wondering. I always wanted to check what some of my all time top shows did in the ratings and if they deserved to be cancelled.

    People with the NEW NORMAL talk. In what universe is a show that gets a 1.4 on one of the major networks going to come back for a second season!? I mean, the show is not exactly doing great even when it had the VOICE as a lead-in with Go On. It was still only doing mid to high 1′s. There is a good show underneath all the preachy stuff RYAN Murphy is determined to shove down our throats with any of his shows. Maybe instead of making a half hour political spot he may wanna focus on the actual show at hand. I watch the show because Ellen Barkin is pretty amazing in it but I know it could be so much better!

    …..AND VEGAS got rid of a great storyline! They could have dragged out the wife and the ADA thing a wee bit longer. It would of given the show some excitment for the next 2 or 3 episodes, atleast. Could of been a great story arc (See Adrianna/FBI Sopranos). Too bad they trashed that chance. If they where gonna get rid of her anyway, why not have it dragged out 3 episodes or so, have her get caught by one of Savino’s men and have a dramatic “taken care of” exit. I think the creators are out-of-touch with younger viewers and it’s going to be the shows downfall.

    @Mark

    Holy fan excuse BINGO! Why not take a look at Pan Am and see how that turned out for ABC despite its popularity in other countries.

  • Mary 1

    In what universe is a show that gets a 1.4 on one of the major networks going to come back for a second season!?

    Well @bigbrotherfan, I believe that universe is called NBC where almost all their sitcoms are within that range. Since they’re probably not going to cancel them all some show that’s averaging about that will probably be renewed.

    I’d say GO ON will probably get renewed and TNN has a shot because it started off with a higher average than the other new comedies and its ratings did improve from last week even if slightly, in terms of numbers and amount of viewers. Nothing is a lock of course and it all depends on future ratings.

  • bigbrotherfan

    @Mary1

    I’m sure TNN started off okay-ish but so did Animal Practice and we all know how that went. The show is doing about par with Whitney and GWK and they are always up for major cacellation talk.

  • Mark

    ^ On one thing I agree with you bigbrotherfan, TNN should stop being so politcal and go for more harsh humor relying on family ties, problems, and whatsoever.

  • Chuck_T

    Good for Betty, and today is her birthday!

  • Mr Mumble

    I can see ABC, NBC and Fox all cutting their comedy offerings by an hour next season. The sheep-like commissioning of so much chick-com output has been a disaster.

    There’s a good reason NBC protected “Revolution” and allowed “Go On” and “The New Normal” to fend for themselves. NBC don’t want another “Up All Night” on their hands, ABC don’t want more “Happy Endings” or “Apt. 23″, Fox don’t want another “Breaking In”.

    Mindy, The New Normal and Happy Endings are all likely to be cut along with Apt.23 and Ben & Kate. New comedies are not as likely to be getting 1.0s six episodes into the fall 2013 season as these turkeys.

    @Rick, New Girl’s male characters (and that’s 3/5ths of the core cast) have all merged into the same persona for me.

    YEAH!!! SERIES HIGH FOR NCIS!!! RENEW IT NOW!
