    Ouch. Poor TNN.

  • Greg

    Holy crap.

  • Kat

    Five episodes in a row NCIS has broken 21 million viewers!! Juggernaut!!

  • RandyL

    Embarrassingly bad for The New Normal. Not even the Voice can save it when it returns.

  • rob60990

    NBC needs to stop trying to make Go On happen. It’s not. Focus on your new comedies NBC and cancel the dead weight.

  • Sam

    Poor TNN. But with a 1.1 lead-in, that’s what you get, I guess.

  • Samunto

    How low must a show go before it’s cancelled? It may have rated higher earlier in the season but these numbers…..

  • BigBrotherFan

    Well…Look on the BRIGHT SIDE SMASH FANS…All 4 of you…Looks like it BUILT AUDIENCE from THE NEW FLOP!

  • American

    Sub-1? Oh well, it was nice knowing you, TNN.

  • Jack

    GO and TNN will continue the low trend unless NBC does something about it. And by something I mean to either advance the return of The Voice or to save the remaining episodes until the actual return of The Voice.

  • TimsDale4ever

    I’ll miss TNN. It was different. So insteand we’ll have a new show with 6 or so single friends all trying to figure out who to date and marry. z.zz.zzz..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • Revenger

    I get that’s shows can adjust up with final ratings, but how can they possibly adjust down. Cult was at 940,000 viewers, and with final it is at 860,000 viewers. That’s 80,000 viewers lost?

  • Daniel J.

    I don’t think TNN deserves cancellation. What’s happening is just not their fault. Unlike other comedies that have always performed bad, TNN is all about its lead-in. If the lead-in is good, TNN is good. That’s pretty usual for first seasons, by the way. I think they should air re-peats until The Voice comeback…

    Comment of the day!


    Count me as the 5th Smash fan… and yep at least it grew – ha ha! :)

  • jimmers

    This show I used to very much like. But it’s so confusing to watch now. It tries to punch in the jokes yet it tries to be so serious at the same time. Sadly, it’s not working anymore.

  • samurai99

    Andrew Rannells must be regretting leaving Girls for TNN.

  • DanaK

    Smash definitely needed a better lead-in

  • matt

    well, dead weight would be basically every NBC comedy

  • John A

    Cult lost viewers lol. I thought it might adjust up.

  • senor chang

    at this point, making fun of NBC is just cruel. noting the adjustment down from a 1.0 to a 0.9 is just poking a kindergarten student after you take his lunch money and give him a wedgie.
