    If I were them, I would slow down with the new stuff and give the current series new chances next fall on different times, so that they can build-up some “hits” before releasing ten new shows simultaneously again.

    NBC only had six new shows on their fall schedule (only four hours due to most of them being sitcoms). That’s right on par with what most networks do every single year…

    They renewed multiple freshman shows last year, including some borderline ones like Whitney and Up All Night, to do exactly what you just said.

    Happy that HOD got adjusted down!

  • Alan

    Still steady for Emily Owens

  • Allison

    Sorry to those who thought TNN would be adjusted up. It’s time to face it, your show is not doing well because it is not a good show. It will probably get renewed though because NBC is in such a sad state and all their comedies are doing bad…not to mention, NBC (and the world) seem to think the sun shines out of Ryan Murphy’s a**.

  • RG-X

    well that’s a little better for PARENTHOOD – but was still hoping for a 2.0

    Probably because there is really no cliff hanger teaser – the show is written where the charachters live on during the hiatus seasons it’s off the air – so it’s a more real-life time line. The show will pick up as if several months have gone by when it returns in near the fall.

  • Tim

    Wow. Those old farts really love their NCIS. It’s the new Matlock!

  • Mark3

    Dixie is very stable. It will get renewed

  • Tuesday Night Liars

    I think NBC would be much better off at this point just moving Whitney and Guys with Kids to Tuesdays at 9p behind Off Their Rockers. They’re more in need of multi-cam hits that can take off like the CBS ones do instead clinging onto these niche single-cams that will never draw a huge audience.

    It’s weird that Betty White’s Off Their Rockers had the same amount of viewers both episodes (5.91) but the 18-49 ratings were different! 1.6 at 8pm and a 1.8 at 8:30pm…

    Then again last year GG scored constantly lower ratings than Nikita and was the first CW show to drop under a milion viewers and they still got the final season so maybe 90210 will get it, too.

    I hate having to defend GG or CW of all things but even though Nikita had more viewers, they had lower ratings than GG last season.

  • Jane

    Speaking of 90210, the show was a consistent performer last season so it made sense for it to get renewed given the state of other shows. However, with its current performance, I don’t see why the network would give it a final ten since it’s really on its last legs.

    Let’s not forget that when they gave One Tree Hill a final season, if I recall, they wanted to give it a full season but some of the actors were done with it. They couldn’t even get all the actors for the final season. And when it returned, it performed well (by CW standards). Gossip Girl on the other hand had a horrendous final season and I bet you the network expected it to perform much better (like it did for the finale) for the entire season. Given the precedence GG set, I think they will think twice about a final 10 episode wrap up for 90210 unless they are really out of options.

  • Vlad

    Exactly 1 year ago New Girl was pulling a 3.5. Wow, this show dropped HARD.

  • carla

    @Lauren It doesnt matter how much audience BATB loses of TVD FACTS are that its ratings are better than HOD. BATB is the 4th higest cw show.

  • mando

    NBC needs to see multi-cam comedies are the answer to get out of this hell. Returning Up all night and Guys with kids should be moved to 9:00 on Tuesday!
    Different viewer base from New Girl, Happy Endings and The Mindy project.
    And Go On and TNN can succeed as well cause They don’t seem to have similar viewer bases with the middle and The neighbours.

    As a big fan of NBC, I really want this schedule

  • Bitter Ringer Fan

    Flop of Dixie adjusted down obviously. But still i admit that i think this one will survive at the end of the season because it’s being consistent with the ratings (0.5, 0.6), while even though i watch BATB, it will be cancelled cuz it has similar ratings with HOD and it’s just season 1. The carrie diaries is dead, so Cult will decide the faith of Flop0210.

  • marciel

    Yay FLOP Of Dixie is still up for cancellation!

  • Mark

    NBC totally needs multi-camera sitcoms on Tuesday and save Go On and TNN for Wednesdays or Thursdays. What happened this year on Tuesdays and Thursdays was/is simply a suicide.

  • Lauren

    @carla Two words : SECRET CIRCLE!

    And people calling HOD “flop” make me laugh. It’s the only show with consistent ratings.

  • Can’t remember

    @Mark please just STOP. Go On is community with Matt Perry and TNN is just horrible. The writing is bad the acting is worse. Andrew Rannells is it’s only bright spot and believe me I wanted to like it just for him. It’s a dog. Theorize all you want.

  • AiPod

    Community is really bad. The actors are good but the show is really bad. I feel like it got renewed just because a legion of overseas fans demanded it. Go On and even TNN have much more quality.
