    Not surprised that every week TNN hits a new series low. How embarrassing. I started off liking it and still tune in if only to see how bad it gets. It’s really bad. Boring, poor writing, not funny, stereotypical characters. Time to put it out of its misery.

  • HalCapone

    Yes, of course but I was referring specifically to the broadcast network component of NBCU. There is precious little pickings for a cable carrier looking to make any decent profit.

  • Alan

    Everything on NBC is dead. It’s not about low-rated shows anymore, because most of them are. I think The CW will not be the lowest rated network soon.

  • statik

    mindy is absolute worst show on all of tv & tnn is worse than mindy–but comcast probably thinks those are ok ratings for the National Broadcast CABLE network


    I love TNN–best new show of the season.
    Stinks it probably will be cancelled :(

  • ron

    last episode was great D: so sad the ratings are so low

  • JW

    @Ryan: Betty White won’t get cancelled this season. Higher demos than GO or TNN for a lower cost will definitely ensure safely from the…well, whatever animal chases low-rated UNscripted and/or cable shows. (I like to think of such an animal as a snake, since it strikes without warning and seemingly at random.) Now Dana Delaney, OTOH, better start fielding pilot offers.

    If single camera comedies cost more than multi-cams and appeal to a smaller audience, why does NBC insist on keeping them? What if they put Whitney and GWK on after “The Voice?” Do you think, under that rigged scenario, that their multi-cam shows could thrive?

  • maximillian

    Smash kept the entire lead in! ;)

  • Brian J

    If NBC decides to renew “TNN” and/or “GO,’ it definitely needs to place it/them after “America’s Got Talent” this summer. At this point, short of some legitimate increases when “The Voice” comes back, the only thing that will save them is Greenblatt’s personal approval. The ratings as they now stand deserve not only cancellation, but the invention of a time machine so that someone can prevent them from ever being approved in the first place!

    statik “mindy is absolute worst show on all of tv & tnn is worse than mindy”

    I think that’s a logical fallacy.

  • Oliver


    Because, in practice, everyone but CBS finds it hard to launch multi-camera comedies. ABC and Fox tried for years to make multi-camera sitcoms happen but the only ones that have stuck are single-camera ones.

    NBC put Whitney after The Office at the start of last season, when The Office was still fairly big, and it didn’t do especially well even early in its run.

  • FemEagle

    People don’t want to watch a show about two pervs shacking up. Duh. Dump it, NBC. Political correctness doesn’t translate into entertainment. Or anything else related to what people really care about.

  • POI

    Cancel The New Normal its not funny at all watchable just dont see it as funny.

  • Tommy

    Yay, Body of Proof gets an increase in viewers in millions. Shame it stays with a 1.2 rating, i really thought it would be adjusted up. It just needs to survive 5 more episodes on air, then it get’s a lead in from Dancing with the Stars. Last year, the final 3 episodes of the season got this lead in and achieved above 10 million. I really love Body of Proof and it definitely does not deserve a 1.2 rating. Bombs in Bodies, Kidnapping, Hostage, lots of action and medical stuff too, WHAT MORE COULD PEOPLE WANT IN 1 EPISODE. The 2 new detectives are great, and i hope that other Body of Proof fans will tune into the new series still. :)

    There reason NBC has become a dead network is that its name has become forever attached to that far-left progressive political news channel MSNBC and the fact all of their programs headline or strongly feature homosexuals. Everyday Americans are middle -of-the-road politically and, while not caring about a person’s private sex practices, are sick and tired of having it shoved down their throats. Them’s the facts whether you like it or not. NBC is finished…

  • Jo

    It’s scary how many people watch the brainless, cookie cutter, procedural trash on CBS. Does Neilsen primarily survey households of idiots?

  • Lauren

    I don’t understand why Cult isn’t on Friday after Nikita. Who cares about The Carrie Diaries rerpeat?

  • Can’t remember

    @Jayzel the only fact I was able to ascertain in your homophobic diatribe is that you are a homophobe. That’s a fact and like it or not YOU are a dying breed.

  • Jayzel

    @Can’t Remember

    I’m gay, you F-ing moron. I just know reality when I see it. “0.9NBC” is dead. Deal with it, realityphobe…
