    Castle’s troubles have only begun–Revolution is returning, and Castle’s headed right back down to the bottom of the pile. :D

  • Lucas

    Fantastic for HIMYM! Great show last night. Glad CBS was able to hold for one goodbye season. Gonna miss it a lot.

  • Brandon

    Fox must be very proud of Bones. They did the right thing by renewing it for a ninth season. I am a huge Bones fan & I am still surprised by the ratings this far into a shows lifespan. There may even be a Season 10 if there is no other successful dramas next season.

    Awww, The Following dropped below a 3.0. Still, that’s a good number for a midseason show.

    While it’s encouraging for TCD that it managed to grow out of a terrible season premiere a couple of episodes later, it’s still got to keep doing that to survive. This is what makes the spring so interesting for the CW–most shows don’t behave the same way they do in the fall. So, you can’t tell what’s going to survive and what won’t until late in the game.

    I suppose it’s possible that if B&tB, TCD and HoD all manage to get a lot of 0.7s this spring, the CW might renew them. Sure, it’s got a lot of new pilots, but continuing a show that’s performing at least minimally well is probably cheaper and they’d still need at least three shows to fill in the gaps (assuming Nikita does get its final syndication season). Plus, the CW needs more than just its basic lineup to fill in schedule gaps throughout the year. And Cult hasn’t premiere yet. Yes, I know people are expecting it to tank, but it’s never wise to count out a show before it’s aired. Call it the Grimm Rule.

    I still think something’s going to get cancelled, though (besides Emily Owen and Gossip Girl). If these three do continue to do well(ish) and Cult does reasonably well, 90210 could be in big trouble. But that final-season push to get a few extra episodes seems to be as compelling as the syndication number, so it’s hard to tell.

    Doesn’t really help that Pedowitz has been changing the goalposts post-Dawn Ostroff as he’s gone along and we can only guess at what his longterm gameplan is.

    As far as what’s going on at 10pm, Castle seems low, but it may be doing well enough for another season. I am skeptical of Revolution’s return. It’s expensive; it hadn’t settled out yet before it went on hiatus; and those breaks are ugly on any show that is not completely solid. It may be okay, but that’s not any kind of given.

    The Following had nearly the same amount of viewers as Bones. Yet,I’m really glad that it did skew younger, increasing by .5 in the demo.

  • ariana osgood

    CARRIE DIARIES!!!!!!!!

  • Tommy

    For the first time I’m cautiously positive that TCD might have a long life on the CW

  • JacobYates

    FOX executives are dancing with joy at the Following’s success so far. Still, there is plenty of more time for it to decline. However, I think that even if its ratings dip below the scripted average for FOX, they will still renew it and tout it as their ‘new hit drama’ next season. I’m not saying that it’s not a hit now, but even if it declines sharply, it will still be their ‘new hit drama’.

    When comparing Alcatraz to the Following, they are almost identical. Both were midseason replacements, they both aired after a veteran show with good ratings, went up against the exact same competition, and both started out strong only to decline in the following weeks. While the Following hasn’t declined like Alcatraz did thus far, I think the circumstances are a bad omen.

  • Tony JJ

    Very good for The Carrie Diaries. I think it’s a keeper for the CW right now. I’m sure it’ll be added to Netflix before season 2 and maybe the nostalgia/curious factor will hit some twenty somethings who watched Sex and the City and will check it out and get addicted.

    When comparing Alcatraz to the Following, they are almost identical. … went up against the exact same competition

    Alcatraz premiered a week earlier than The Following did, this was the week it started collapsing.


    wk 1 – 3.3 (two hour premiere, new CBS comedies)
    wk 2 – 3.0 (CBS in repeats)
    wk 3 – 2.8 (CBS in repeats)
    wk 4 – 2.3 (new CBS comedies, The Voice premieres)
    wk 5 – 1.9 (all new again, Alcatraz is effectively dead)

    The Following

    wk 1 – 3.2 (new CBS comedies)
    wk 2 – 3.3 (CBS in repeats)
    wk 3 – 2.9 (new CBS comedies airing night after Super Bowl)

    Unlike Alcatraz, which faced a significant increase in competition start its fourth week, this is as hard as it will get for The Following until late March.

  • David Howell

    What’s this, good news for the CW? Nikita popped up to almost-adequate numbers, BaTB started getting 0.7s, and now this? Trouble for HoD, and 90210 looks hard to renew even for a farewell 13 now…

    Not surprised to see upward adjustments at CBS, but still a disappointment for them not to get 2BG into the 4s. They’re going to miss HIMYM in 2014/15, and if they get the pilots to justify sitcom expansion – they need two new shows and a full season order for Rules, or three without one – they should, as they need to get replacements for two veteran shows and they’d only be replacing a drama getting NBC numbers. Of course, we now know why they didn’t expand this season… At least they’ve got Mom for 2013/14.

    Castle skews old, maybe that suggests its audience is more compatible with DWTS than Batchelor? Of course, it’s only the under-50 part of that common audience which means much to ABC…

    Of course, always excuses for H50 numbers.
    This show has the strongest lead in of any CBS 10 pm show and people is still complaining.
    POI follows a comedy too plus it is against stronger competition than H50.
    CSI Miami always followed a comedy and that show was getting a 2.3 with a rerun.
    And what about the post football game the other day, Huge lead in and the numbers again for H50 were weak. Or again that lead in was no compatible.
    The crossover with NCIS LA failed too, so it is ridiculous to pair these 2 shows.
    The show is just plain bad and CBS is stuck with a very expensive show getting mediocre numbers because they need those syndication episodes.

  • ateofi

    Every week you repeat the same crap all over again ands you seem to be more ignorant. Many people on this board explained the reasons for H50 numbers which are disappointing for the fans. And yes currently H50 has the strongest lead mathematically but the shows are totally incompatible. Let’s face it sitcom fits to an action show like fist to an eye. The best lead in for an action show would be another action show – plain simple!! The exact same situation was with Revolution which had the strongest lead in out of all 10 pm shows and it lost huge portion of the demo from The Voice. Why? Because talent and genre shows don’t fit together as well! If you don’t get that, then no arguments can get to you.
    As for POI – thes show is at 9 pm (not 10 pm) and it consistently loses ca 1.0 demo from TAHM. The losses for 9 pm shows to their lead-in are ususally smaller than for 10 pm shows. It’s not as big hit as some fans claim.
    As for Post football game numbers, H50 aired only ON ONE COAST and the other had CSI:NY, so the ratings were pretty decent in view of this fact.
    By the way, currently only 2 shows have better ratings: Scandal and CSI.

    TCD is doing surprisingly well, it has risen since the pilot….if it holds like this I forsee a 13 episode renewal for midseason….NOT a primetime September launch.

    90210….Pedowitz needs to tell the producers sharpish that the show is ending so they can give it a proper ending.

    I did read on SpoilerTV that this was the case….the final season announcement could come any day now!

    To Everyone here, i really recommend Rhe Carrie Diaries, its a really good show. The lead AnnaRobb is really charming and has Sarah Jessica Parker’s carrie down to a tenth. Anna has SJP’s mannerism’s down so well, its clear she did ger Homework. The show isnt campy and superficious like other teen drama(gossip Girl), its down to earth and realistic and the characters arent fake and one dimesional. After last night ep i was really impressed
    , by the time a show hits the third ep, i decide weather to continue to watch it or not and i was certain i’d drop TCD but it just kept improving, im really happy the shows ratings are increasing because the show deserves it. As a big SATC fan i recommend to all, but plz dont get butthurt that they changed some details from the book, dont let that drive you away. Give it at least four Ep’s, BTW Amy B. Harris- one of the main writers for SATC is the Executive producer for TCD and a writer as well, so trust me, the show is loyal to SATC. Im a straight 21 year old male who looks forward to TCD more then the following, Give it a try peeps. Spread the word.

  • Dan

    Well, with BatB and TCD both hitting a 0.7 I’m starting to get worried for HoD.

  • NE1

    Rules of Engagement is awesome, I just discovered it I can’t get enough.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    I still expect TCD to drop back to .5 or so. Can’t see it continuing to grow past .7 and it would need to for a second season.

    The Following is fine at this point. It all depends on whether it continues to drop significantly (over ten percent a week) over the next three episodes. If it doesn’t, a second season is all but assured.

    Deception is dead. Stick a fork in it.

  • gerry

    all those re-airs for TCD are paying off. that’s a nice boost!

    bye 90210!

  • bsp

    “Mother” is benefiting, and will continue to benefit, from the fact that the network and showrunners have established a finish line, with the promise of closure, as opposed to the tedious water-treading that the show has engaged in during this season. Hope they get it right!
