    Cult is better than The Following, but I do enjoy TF and Bacon is one of my favorite actors. So, glad its doing well.

    I’ve seen H50 now and again and it isn’t the kind of show you want to stick with. Happy that Castle is trouncing the competition even though I have yet to catch up with season 5 episodes. Don’t understand the sudden vitriol spewed against Nathan Fillion though. Guy’s a very good actor.

    I don’t get this either and I don’t like it. I watched Nathan Fillon in dramas and comedies and he is verstile actor and has a lot of charm.
    As for H50, please speak for yourself – it’s the show YOU don’t want to stick with but apparently over million viewers do stick with it.
    Also I don’t watch ‘The following” but the rebound from last week is impressive. I hope it can hold its own against The Voice premiere. NBC is virtually wihout dead without that show.

    Castle adjusted up.yehh

  • mesjarch

    Don’t worry. ABC always finds a way to get Castle ratings worse. After next episode they are making 3 week break for the show *face palm*

    Hawai five o will.go worse when revolution returns

    Hope not. It would be good if Castle gained strengh against Revolution if H50 cannot. I would not like this awful show to be number one again on monday night.

  • Andrea

    Castle always goes on hiatus after the two part episode. It’s nothing new. And most shows take some kind of break in the spring too, it’s not just Castle.

  • Mike

    Ateofi, when a show drops is because it is a show that has failed to get a loyal audience, the show is bad or boring, so viewers leave. It is easy to get.
    Now, The Following is doing great, see the numbers. Easy to understand. It is getting better and better.

  • Jen

    If the writers of Mike and Molly don’t get over this have to have a baby story line, the show will flop. Every single episode this season has been about them whining about having a baby…boring. I looked at the guide , saw something about a baby and didn’t watch it.

  • ateofi

    I don’t watch The following but I wish it well, especially after The voice premieres. As for H50, I am a big fan and I will stick with this show until it gets cancelled, but I do think that Peter Lenkov and the writers should be fired instantly. It’s is the writing that is killing the show, because all other ingredients are there for the show to carry on successfully.

  • Mike

    Ateofi,I don’t think it is fair to blame just the writers when a show fails. I think the failure or sucess of a show has to do with several things working together,lead man,cast chemistry, writing..Peter L. has been around the business for a long time, CSI NY has been a hit for years, so I really would not put the blame on him. If you take a look in some fan sites, most of the negativity centers around the acting.It is bland.

  • ateofi

    Sorry Mike, but I disagree. Wherever I go, to any fan forum it’s the writing fans complain about the most. There are really few remarks about acting and they usually do not concern the core four cast. As for “bland” acting – that comlaint concerns 90% of shows. Also many fans say the show is fun like in season one – that’s the direct derivative of the writing. Lenkov has too much power over the show and he has made some really bad creative mistakes and experimented too much on it. I am sure Mr. Lenkov is expereinced but it doesn’t change te fact that he and his writing staff are ruining H50.

  • tv ratings are nonsense

    The following only decent show on any network.

  • lakersupbyten

    Five 0 will bounce back. It is just a matter of story line focus. The acting has always been outstanding and excellent.

  • Buddy

    The CW should announce this is the last season of 90210 NOW. This way writers can end it, and they can save face. A .2 can’t make it back. Can it?

  • MoxieGirl44

    Wow – Even with a re-reun, Bones kicks wild ass! Woot!

  • Justin

    Please CBS. Swap Mike & Molly and Rules.
