    I agree with the person that said they acted too quickly on Emily Owens MD. I always watched Hart of Dixie and liked it even if kind of a dumb show lol and even watch Emily Owens also. I will admit that at first, I thought Emily Owens was so so boring (first 2 or 3 episodes) but I think then the writing got better and I much prefer it to Hart of Dixie now, even though I still watch both. And while it is not a Golden Globe worthy show, I think it has a lot more potential now then Hart of Dixie if being honest. Looking back now, IMO, I think they should have cancelled Hart of Dixie and given Emily Owens a shot.

    I agree with the person that said they acted too quickly on Emily Owens MD

    How did they act too quickly? They needed to free up a timeslot for Cult and Emily Owens was by far the weakest of the three new dramas.

  • Oliver

    I doubt they will move Cult.

    Moving it to 8 gives it a better lead-in but hurts Hart of Dixie, which still has a pulse itself. Cult’s not really an 8pm show, either, and the pilot is supposed to a complete trainwreck.

    It was clearly originally targeted at Friday, but I guess the demise of EO:MD, the PUT number differential and an reluctance to put reruns on Tuesday changed their mind.

    That said, there is one big advantage to airing on Tuesday: it airs the day after The Following, which has a similar premise. The downside is that the comparison might not be all that favourable.

    Burn Happy Endings. Where’s that bragging press release now?

  • Chris Parker

    I love the New Normal, those rating are awful…. hope that changes..

  • Carl

    New Normal made little effort to actually embrace an audience, instead choosing to condescend to them and act like they were doing the viewers a favor. This is the end result.

  • Tony ^_^

    As usual, “Raising Hope” has a small but dedicated audience.

    And I guess getting rid of that flop, “Ben and Kate”, helped “New Girl”! :D

    Either that, or the promos interested a lot of people. ^_^

    No CW was right in cancelling Emily Owens, it is unlikely to improve. However in order to give Cult a good premiere, they should have moved BATB to Tuesdays at 9, and gave CUlt a good Vampire Diaries premiere.

    @Bill – Ratings are garbage for 90210, but ratings at this point may not seem to matter for renewal purposes. The show will likely get a final season only because its a long running once highly rated drama, that helped the CW in it’s third year. It may sound stupid and wishful but my guess is that a final 10-13 episode season of 90210 on Fridays at 9 next season or maybe in it’s current slot, isn’t out of the question.

    However in terms of CW looking for long term series (to stay on the schedule for a few years) its a battle between Hart of Dixie, Beauty and the Beast, and The Carrie Diaries. Since ratings are basically equal HOD probably has the edge because its a drama that’s aired 2 full seasons on The CW. If cancelled it would be the first time CW has ever done this. Generally CW only keeps 1 fall drama (Arrow obviously) so they may figure freshman CD and BATB wouldn’t be worth keeping if ratings don’t improve. For CW, freshman dramas are always easier to get rid of then shows that have lasted beyond 2 seasons.

    The Mindy Project winning the 3 way comedy war and it holding up steady means likely renewal. Even a 1.7 looks good for FOX.

    NBC probably figures the low rated Betty White lead in is obviously hurting Go On and The New Normal. I don’t think NBC is ready to give up on them yet. The latest victim of the “Low rated Tuesday 9 Comedy Death slot”, Go On and The New Normal will get their Voice lead in soon and likely next season be moved to rebuild Thursdays.

    Ratings say cancelled, but NBC will try to salvage these once high rated shows.

    Another point is that I truly believe that MF would improve with a better 8h30 show. New Girl’s improvement today, as 2 broke girls’ improvement after parterns, shows just that.

  • John A

    The crazy thing is BATB still gets the cushy timeslot and the give Cult a horrible time. How about switching BATB to Tuesday or Friday at 9pm and move Cult behind TVD? BATB is a flop behind TVD.

  • John A

    Fox doing ok on Monday and with NG up they are having a little luck.

  • Dan

    @John A – If CW would move the obviously failing BATB to Tuesdays at 9 Cult might have a chance. Cult is CW’s last chance at another hit for the season besides Arrow, and could be behind Vampire Diaries.

    “@Bill – Ratings are garbage for 90210, but ratings at this point may not seem to matter for renewal purposes”

    That’s what I’ve been saying all along. However, making the leap you make to “The show will likely get a final season” isn’t something I’m going to do. It’s possible, that’s why I have the show a toss up, but I’m not going to call it probable.

  • Dan

    @Omabin – So next season if FOX keeps the Tuesday comedy block, if FOX keeps Raising Hope at 8 and moves Mindy Project to 8:30, at keeps New Girl at 9, they can air a new comedy post New Girl.

    Mindy Project at 8:30 would be a better New Girl lead in then any new comedy or Ben & Kate. It’s the “Partners” effect.

  • Dan

    @Bill – I would too leave 90210 as a toss up. Ratings wise the series is 50/50, like Gossip Girl last season. However looking at CW’s history, its gives a better perspective on what might happen to veterans. CW is a very low rated network, so some their renewals (Gossip Girl, Nikita, Hart of Dixie) aren’t all the time based on ratings, but would better fit for syndication and long term prospects on the network.

    NCIS!!! :)

    New Girl is not worth the over $300,000 advertising slot this year. They go by last seasons numbers and predict that it will be the same. Well it isn’t the same, New Girl has dropped a lot like double digits alot in all categories including the younger 18/34 and 18/49. This 2.6 is a nice sigh of relief for this sophomore slump of a series.

    This show is still performing decent numbers. It was pulling low 2’s for a while borderline on the 1’s. With ben and kate out of the way, American Idol back on (and Fox is taking advantage of that by advertising other fox series), and Monday Nights back to good ratings everything seems to be improving for the net.

    However I know advertisers paid way too much for slots during New Girl, however like I said ratings do skew young and decent but not great enough to charge over $300,000.

    Fox still needs to kick Mindy project off its schedule after its season run and move Raising Hope to 9:30

  • Greg


    They didn’t need to free up a timeslot, actually. There was Fridays at 9 already empty.

  • Greg

    Okay, there might be some hope left for the FOX comedy block. Who would’ve thought sweet Ben and Kate was dragging everything else down?
