    Series low for Malibu Country?

  • Jenny

    It’s so difficult to know what ABC’s expectations for MC are? Are these ratings acceptable?

  • rob60990

    That’s still low for MC imo. I don’t think it deserves to come back.

  • karin

    Touch is pathetic…

  • don juan

    I watch Malibu country but it’s getting a bit tedious already. If they cancel it, I won’t be overly sorry to see it go.

  • William

    MC is hanging on! They need to get an Alpha Male on the show!! They are losing the male viewers from the lead in LMS! Bring back the X husband,,, need a good man on the show!! Too many woman and half men!

    @Melissa,

    It is tying its series low, but it had hit it before (which is actually worse). I like the show and would like for it to stick around. Maybe I am a bit biased but it sounds to me as being a type of show that would gain viewers as it went on through repeats and the likes instead of declining season to season. Of course the in-season decline it had does not support my argument so I would understand ABC’s decision in canning it. Really the most true bubble show of the season, so hard to make a call.

  • William

    Hey,,, they still pull in close to 6 million viewers on a friday night!!!

  • SJ

    I still think it should be renewed. It’s not doing that badly for a Friday show and ABC has other holes to plug.

  • GARebelman

    How sad that Touch is doing so bad. It’s actually got some good stories so far.

  • SJ

    Rock Center sure went back down fast. But at least it’s now on Friday nights where it can’t cause that much damage…

  • anotherhour

    I don’t see why they dont move Happy Endings into MC’s slot, Folks says its not a good match with Last Man Standing, well if you’ve seen LMS it’s not exactly the “sweet innocent family” show it pretends to be.

  • Wright

    I feel bad for Touch. If it was on during the week I would be able to watch it live.

  • TVMAN

    I’ve given up on Touch. Tried to like it but its just soooo boring. Pilot episode was Amazing. Every episode after that was ZZzzzzz….. Only reason I kept watching was cause of Keither Sutherland. He should just do the 24 movie. We’re all waiting…

  • Tony ^_^

    “Touch” is doing worse than “Fringe.” Lol…

  • Zach

    I think ABC will see how Happy Endings does on Fridays before making a call on Malibu. The thing is, Happy Endings can do the same demo with a lot fewer viewers (not that that really matters) but Happy Endings is much closer to syndication and that should matter. I think if Happy Endings can average 1.2 to 1.4 on Fridays it has a chance of coming back. And in all honesty i see a return of TGIF next year on ABC because they have too many comedies and nowhere to put them. The Neighbors and Suburgatory could move to Fridays and be paired in a two hour block with LMS and MC or HE.

  • Tom

    I really want to like Malibu Country but it’s lacking something. Maybe William is right and they should have the ex husband on the show. That’s what made Reba work so well IMHO.

  • anotherhour

    @Zach
    I totally agree with you on that :)

    PaperHeart? Never even heard of this movie.. I know CW aired 2 movies this past week, When In Rome(I heard of) aired Tuesday and did the same ratings as hart of dixie even though it is not that good of a movie, and Paperheart which underperformed this past Friday Night?!!! I will have to google this movie just for the sake of curiosity alone!

    Too Bad CSI NEW YORK did not improve from its low of 1.2. Isn’t the finale coming up soon and didn’t it crossover with the original CSI this past week on both shows airing WED and FRI.. If so I find it strange that fans did not tune in for this, unless the JOB really impacted the friday Night lineup.

    When is Grimm coming back?

    Also TGIF on ABC is not going to make a comeback.. IF LMS is pulling 1.4-1.6 and Malibu is pulling 1.2-1.5 why would ABC want to move Neighbors which is barely doing better on Wednesday Nights averaging 1.7 the past couple weeks. Suburgatory is also questionable in my opinion.. Shark Tank is doing GREAT for ABC Fridays. They would be stupid to move this timeslot, friday Night winning show to weekdays in place for TGIF of failing comedies. LMS was hitting solid 2s last season and it decreased a lot when moved to Fridays what makes people think that the weak Neighbors and Suburgatory will hold better? It won’t.

    How many eps is Happy Endings away from Syndication? Didn’t it have a very short first season so it would probably need a lot of episodes next season just to get to that level. If Abc was willing to let go of Cougar Town then they will do the same for Happy Endings which is doing way more horribly than CT ever did.
