  • TVMAN

    Any ratings for Hotel Impossible on the Travel Channel?

  • jess

    honestly i think bunheads is suffering because of the lack of romance. there is no core couple yet and no cute boys. abc family core demo is young girls and women.

  • pll fan

    so long, bunheads.

  • Jenny

    Oh, wow Bunheads lost half of Switched’s demo. The Lying Game and Bunheads retention is bad.:(

  • Tom

    Bunheads is suffering from bad writing. I hate to dump on ASP because I loved Gilmore Girls. However, the last two episodes have had meandering storylines of full of seemingly insignificant events that each ended in a final traumatic scene. Thirty-six minutes is a long time to wait for something to happen. Oddly, Monday’s show seemingly resolved the previous week’s trauma with a one sentence reference. Talk about an anticlimax. Moreover, the dance scenes have also become much less entertaining. The glory days of Sasha dancing to “Istanbul” are clearly gone. I doubt if this show will be renewed but, in retrospect, the suits at ABCF should have been more insistent on making ASP pick up the pace of the show. There is one consolation though – it’s still a monumental improvement over MIOBI.

  • Hero

    Man, Dallas put up sub par numbers. I had hoped that Dallas would premiere to higher ratings and demos. The back to back episodes was very entertaining last night. I hope the ratings and demos improve the rest of the season. I’d like this show to continue so I hope it gets better.

  • Hero

    @Ian, I so agree that TNT should have kept Dallas in its original time slot on Wednesday nights. Not only did it have way less competition, but the audience is still familiar with the old time slot. It is never a good thing when networks start changing up a shows time slot. I also agree that Dallas needs to have demos of 1.0 or higher the rest of the season if is to be renewed. Let’s see what happens.

  • BigBrotherFan

    What the heck is wrong with people? How can people be watching TEEN MOM over DALLAS? Insane! Insane! DALLAS IS ONE OF THE BEST CABLE SHOWS! Josh Henderson and Julie Gonzalo are great actors and it’s a shock more people watch staged reality crap.

    ….I don’t mind catfish, though ;-)

    I predicted around a 0.9-1.1 for Dallas NOWHERE near a 1.5-wasn’t it doing like 0.8′s in the summer after it’s first 3 episodes? Damn. I really REALLY like this show.

    Jesse whats-his-name is a down right awful actor (DALLAS). It’s the same problem with ARROW, though. He’s pretty much the main character and the “hero” too, it be tough as heck to replace him. DID HIM AND STEPHEN AMELL GO TO THE SAME DRAMA ACADEMY and was it taught by Channing Tatam?

    It still did like 5 times better than GIRLS haha

  • ethan

    PWAHAHAHAHAHAHA @ FLOPheads!!!!!…what a HORRIBLE show!!! the MIOBI folks are laughing their heads off right now :D

  • DenverDean

    Dallas’ ratings aren’t a big surprise. Airing in the summer as a drama original, it has a far better chance at pulling in viewers tired of network repeats or reality shows. In-season episodes of cable summer dramas originals always rank lower.

  • Rachel

    Bunheads is dead. There’s no way they can justify renewing it while giving JBD and MIOBI the axe.

  • BB

    Bravo is having a great Sunday night and a pretty good Monday night. RHOBH is better than ever this season and next weeks episode looks like the best one yet, I expect super high ratings. I’m also really loving vanderpump rules, which Lisa is my favorite housewife ever but that’s not why I like the show, it’s actually really good and is getting good ratings.

  • Greg

    An hour before Dallas came on last night I called one of my best friends whom I know loved Dallas last summer and I asked him if he was going to watch it. He was like “I thought it came on on a Wednesday”. People got used to it being on a Wednesday. But look…if it was on Wednesdays there’s Fox’s mega hit American Idol that it could be up against. Maybe they thought Monday would fit better for Dallas at this time. Almost 3 million viewers is not bad. But it sure needs to do better.

    I loved Dallas last year. It was clever and intriguing and had twists and turns often. However….the first episode last night was a big letdown for me. The second hour improved a lot, at least. What bugged me the most is how at the end of last season John Ross and Christopher went into business together…and now…John Ross is already wanting to take over the company and get rid of Christopher. Why the 180? I thought it was whack. Also, when Anne met her daughter who was riding that horse…that was so anti-climactic and a bit stupid. Then we are introduced to the girls grandmother played by Judith Light. She’s supposed to be the mother of Anne’s ex-husband Ryland Harris. But she could pass as his sister! I thought it was silly to bring on this new character. I love Judith Light but so far her being thrown into Anne and Bobby’s storyline involving the “daughter” and Ryland is not interesting enough to hold people’s attention. All I can say is…I pray the writing improves because whoever is writing this season is not doing a good job. Bad writing if you ask me. Poor direction of the characters. Rebeccca goes from meek and sweet to ruthless and cold-hearted THAT fast? Please. It was all just a bit too silly. I loved DALLAS the first time around…loved the reboot last year…but so far the first two episodes just weren’t compelling to make me want to continue watching….ALTHOUGH I will watch because I love Dallas, love the characters, and I love Josh Henderson as John Ross. HOT HOT HOT. LOL

  • silvit

    Told you so about Dallas months ago!!! :lol: TNT is so behind the times it hurts.

    They moved it to Monday to avoid bigger competition. Look at the competition they would have on Wednesday: American Idol, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, SVU. A bloodbath.

    And the summer excuse show doesn’t stand. First of all, if people like a show enough they tune it. Dance Mom, Hardcore Pawns and company held very well in their winter run, almost on par with their summer ratings.

    Summer scripted shows like Suits did great the past few weeks.

    Occam Razor: people didn’t watch Dallas because they weren’t interested enough in the product.

    TNT sucks big time. They keep producing shows that should have been aired 10 years ago.

  • A.C.

    Why is everyone surprised at DALLAS numbers when there was so much hot competition on Network with shows like THE FOLLOWING.

    TNT should have held DALLAS for a summer season like last year. Any fool could see putting it up against the network in season was stupid and a waste of a good program.

  • silvit

    @Greg

    Yet TNT did promote Dallas return quite a lot. As someone else wrote, Dallas was TNT most promoted show. Even last year (with Falling Skies). TNT rerun Dallas after the NBA matches in the last few months in order to give it exposure (same thing they did with Falling Skies). No to mention Saturday’s rerun.
    The SAG awards were full of Dallas ads.

    What Dallas fans can’t complain about is the lack of promotion. Otherwise what the other shows’ fans should say?

  • r0ckmypants

    @TV Freeeeak – VH1 is in more households than Logo, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the repeat numbers actually are higher than the originals. But I also don’t think Logo reports numbers.

    Where’s that poster from last week who said Vanderpump Rules was a flop for Bravo? It only lost 20% of its lead-in and gained 0.2 in the demo this week. Silly trolls.

    I also find it funny that so many posters yesterday thought the return of Dallas would severely cut into The Following’s audience… and The Following increased while Dallas bombed. I do expect it to climb throughout the season, however, due to curiosity on how Larry Hagman’s death will be handled.

  • Ethan

    @Rachel, yes indeed!…I never watched JBD, but it seemed like it was better than bunheads(then again most things are). I remember the good old days of abcF…when we had Wildfire, Kiyle XY and Greek, and then MIOBI, PLL, and a SL which hadn’t yet worn out its welcome…besides S@B, it’s been downhill ever since. In fact, it’s happening to a lot of networks that I have typically liked over the years. USAs last couple shows have been busts, both ratings wise and the fact that they stunk. TNTs summer 2012 launches were also pretty underwhelming, and Monday mornings just looks awful. It’s kind of strange in fact how while the last couple of years had some really good broadcast launches(revenge, once, scandal, Nashville, revolution, following, arrow, secret circle, chi fire, last resort), the basic cable networks have done very poorly with new shows…sort of a reverse trend from the last half decade or so

  • Ryan

    No one’s feeding the troll tonight, Ethan. MOBI will still be cancelled and buried long after Bunheads is off the air. Try adopting a puppy and making a real difference instead of embarrassing yourself.

  • Ryan

    “It’s kind of strange in fact how while the last couple of years had some really good broadcast launches(revenge, once, scandal, Nashville, revolution, following, arrow, secret circle, chi fire, last resort), the basic cable networks have done very poorly with new shows…sort of a reverse trend from the last half decade or so”

    At last, a substantive point – and a good one at that.
