    @bigbrotherfan I agree with what you’re saying. I’m just saying NBC probably won’t cancel them all so one of these low rated sitcoms will probably get renewed.

    NBC doesn’t have much confidence in GWK or Whitney which is why they scheduled repeat episodes yesterday. That’s surely not a sign of commitment. At least Go On and TNN are competitive with the other (low rated) comedies on the other channels in their time slot. I think it could go either way right now.

    New Normal’s are atrocious and Go On isn’t any better but it’ll likely comeback.

    I would love to see what Whitney and Guys with Kids can do in this slot.

    @ Mary1

    Um NBC actually made a smart decision not airing them as new episodes knowing Idol was coming back. CF and SVU have done really well this year in the ratings and they weren’t on either it was a global decision, it had nothing to do with confidence.

    Actually NBC has more confidence in Whitney and GWK than Go On and TNN since they air at 8pm in a tough timeslot with no help while Go On and TNN are protected to death. We finally saw both of those shows air without The Voice and the numbers are miserable.

    I bet if Whitney and Guys with Kids were on in the same timeslot they would do much better.

    Whitney and GWK doesn’t stand a chance, in my opinion. Go On and TNN are far superior in the season average. Even if they weren’t, NBC won’t get rid of Perry and Murphy so soon. I’m confident they’ll have, at least, a second season.

    Well @slow start Go On miserables ratings is still higher than the Whitneys and GWK ratings. The idea that there’s no competition against them on Tuesday is ridiculous as you have both NCIS with over 17 million viewers and you have two other comedies competing and airing at the same times competing for the same type of viewers. That’s a lot of competition.

    Whitney is also on its second season and should not at this point need the boost of another show to succeed. The fact that they put a repeat episode does say something about NBC’s confidence level for this show.

    THe fact that NBC chose to try to boost Go On and TNN by placing it after the Voice should tell you something, like maybe they liked those shows just a bit better and it does show you which shows they would probably lean towards when it comes time for renewals.

    @Mark 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.

    If you can’t see the difference between a TNN win and HIMYM/TBBT/MF winning, I’ll give you a clue: Those other shows have millions and millions and millions of more viewers than TNN. Total viewers is a far better indication of what the People’s Choice is. Not some online rabid fan poll competition.

  • Mark

    TNN season average (1.85) is much above Whitney (1.40) and GWK (1.09). I think it’s pretty safe to bet that TNN will get a second season. Actually I just found this on Zimbio: “according to reports, the NBC hit show (TNN) is gearing up for a second season”. Hope it’s true.

    @Julia….what’s killing new girl is itself. I will admit having Glee as a lead in might have been better than the lead in it has now. (By the way I think Ben & Kate is funny and very under rated) I really was a fan of New girllast year, and by the end of the season they had hit a groove and it was one of the funniest shows on tv. Something has happened this year, and several of the episodes have been more poorly written, and half of them being what I would consider throw away episodes. Episodes I would never watch again in rerun form. Max Greenfield carries the show right now, even more so than the so called star of it. The show has hit a snag right now, hopefully it will get back to where it was.

    I can’t express how awesome it is that Betty White has a hit show on NBC at 91 years old. And it’s #1 in it’s time slot! I think this show is really funny and I laugh out loud every time. This proves that Betty is ratings gold when put in the right format. I love her other show on TV Land, Hot In Cleveland – but the ratings are dipping really low lately for it and it’s not because of Betty, but rather the very weak writing. It’s amazing that Betty is starring in two TV shows at the same time. She is amazing!
