    The Taste held its numbers, so I think it still has a chance at s.2. NBC must be disappointed in the BW special though.
    The Bachelor did well, I think ABC definitely has the option of moving it to Tuesdays next season.
    Very bad for Vegas, the 1/2 hour drop off in the prelims were just horrific.

  • Shepherd

    LOL Holly. You’re so bad! :)

  • James

    CW last 5 days

    VD 1.3
    Arrow 0.9
    Supernatural 0.9
    B&TB 0.7
    TCD 0.7
    HoD 0.6
    Emily Owens 0.4—-cancelled.
    90210 0.4 (President likes final seasons)
    NIKITA 0.4 (syndication)

    Absolutely no idea what will be renewed/canceled at The CW.

    Disappointed in Smash’s ratings. The season premiere was awesome! They waited entirely too long to put the show back on and they barely even promoted it. Such a shame.

  • rob60990

    Barely promoted it? Yeah ok…

  • s0303

    the bachelor is doing better than dancing with the stars…

    smash is not really the best name for that show :)

  • CrimeDawg

    Bummer for both the Betty White special and for Smash. I didn’t watch but my wife said it was great. A whole lot better than last season.
    I really thought Do No Harm was good last week, guess I was definitely in the minority.

    It is almost like people say “Hey a new show on NBC eh it probably sucks.”
    While CBS can run basically the same show 10 times a week and get 10 million viewers.
    If you are looking for postives for NBC it is only 6 weeks until the return of The Voice, 7 months until football starts and a year until the Winter Olympics.

    Hart Of Dixie will stay with sure. Some stuped soapy network will buy it in syndication. Expect batle between B&TB 0.7 and TCD 0.7 fans. Next gold mine for tv by the numbers. Smell a lot of cw titles from now.

  • Petar Ivanov

    Winter Olympics are coming. Be happy NBC.

  • SJ

    If only ABC would switch The Bachelor and Happy Endings two weeks from now… I’d like for Body of Proof to have a chance at returning next year.

    Still certain cancellation for Smash. It’ll be below 1.0 in two weeks.

  • Jenny


    One is a self starter hitting series highs, and the other has the network’s biggest lead-in. The Secret Circle all over again?

  • Legal Girl in Florida

    NCIS – enough said!!!

  • Rebecca

    Happy for Mindy, still haven’t watched past the first few minutes. Busy watching the second episode of Smash.

  • Wright

    Damn was hoping HOD would adjust up. Good for New Girl though.

  • Michael Campbell

    Seriously, all you smash haters haven’t even watched the show. Either that or you have horrible taste in shows. This is quality television, Karen is trying to make her dreams a reality. She gives people hope, to follow theirs in the intrume.

  • Petar Ivanov

    NBC better move smash now on thursday at 10. If wait can turn ugly for the network and that show. Fashion star or Hannibal on tuesday please.

    ps How many episodes nbc order for smash@

  • rob60990
  • Petar Ivanov


    Yep I agree. I am on that opinion two. And with cw ordering so many fantasy pilots i guess tcd will survive.


    Not only is HE dead, but so is Smash

    Nooooo! Veeegaaas!
