    Am taking about the 2014-2015 season, the only reasons bones was renewed is because fox doesn’t have any other drama that can anchor Mondays, bones most likely won’t get renewed for season 11. Glee is declining in ratings, it of dont bounce back it will be axed too, looking at fox ordered pilots they are trying to expand their dramas.

    Following very very steady. SUCCESS

  • omabin

    Excellent for the following! I was expecting castle to have done better with it being a big episode, having a strong lead-in and having no hawaii five-0 to compete with. H50 repeated very very well though.

    it’s seems like CW will cancel all their new shows except of arrow, renew hart of dixie and maybe (although it’s seems like a stupid decision) they will give 90210 a final season..

    Go Rules!


    So much for all those 2BG is not an anchor theories expressed in the prelims

  • Unicorn

    I think Delirium is a potential big hit for FOX. They definitely should order it to series and put it on Monday Fall. Who’s with me?

  • Dan

    I’m amazed at the hate for The Carrie Diaries. Yes, I’m a fan, but I can’t believe how many people on here are rejoicing at it’s down adjustment and wishing and praying for its cancellation. Unless you want a spot open for a particular CW pilot for next year, or you’re a fan of another bubble show, what is it to you if the show is cancelled or renewed? If you don’t like it, then continue not to watch it and leave the rest of us in peace…

    Carrie Diaries is done done done.

    While The Following is doing well for now anyway, it only solves half of FOX’s Monday problems. Bones will end eventually and The Following will only be on half the year.

    “So much for all those 2BG is not an anchor theories expressed in the prelims”

    It still tied HIMYM, which it should be doing better than IMO.

  • Nick

    Now that basically every freshman show besides Arrow on the CW is flopping, it looks like 90210’s chances of a final season are getting better and better.
    TCD is getting same ratings 90210 is getting in it’s fifth, as much as I like the show it will probably be cancelled.

  • Nick

    In it’s fifth season*


    It’s sad that SMASH is doing worse then Deception…

  • MichaelChickless

    The Following! Woot!

  • oli

    The Carrie Diaries is one of the best show on the CW, it’s actually really good. The soundtrack is great and the plot is different from Sex and the City but it does work! It has its nostalgic feeling which I love… Give it a try guys, it is not that bad compared to most of the CW shows….

  • samurai99


    If you’re talking about me, I called it a dumb show, not a flop. It’s like the Jersey Shore. Only an idiot would call them flops, but that doesn’t make them good shows.

  • Unicorn

    The Deception is stable and still dead. NBC will try again next season with some of the pilots they’re developing…

  • Freyja

    Here’s the thing I know the CW doesn’t want all genre shows, but it’s what seems to do best.. Ok make that good genre shows, the Cult wasn’t that good, and B&TB not much better.

    Maybe they can develop their own Zombie show, since that seems to be the new flavor of the month.

    I knew TCD would flop and be a waste of time, we all know how Sex and the City ended, no need to see the beginning. ;)


    And NBC is still the biggest loser

  • karin

    So Fox is third, i guess?

  • AJ

    I really hope Rules makes it another season. It’s sad the way CBS has tried several different ways to kill that show when it’s done much better than things they’ve tried like Partners.
