    Golden Boy will be silenced soon but impressive post nonetheless.

    CBS is/was setting Golden Boy up for failure. I mean, announcing a Friday move by the third episode before the show even premieres was pretty silly. It would be such a shame to see a great actor like Chi McBride go down with another show!

    “CBS was first in every half-hour in households, viewers, adults 25-54 and adults 18-49 for the second consecutive Tuesday.”

    Well, Golden Boy’s numbers really weren’t that impressive but you can’t argue with the overall results. CBS has Tuesday locked down!

    I saw Golden Boy and it was junk. CBS knew they had a lousy show and they dealt with it accordingly. You don’t get to be the number 1 network, if you can not tell the difference between good TV shows and bad ones.

    Good actors survive early carrer setbacks. It happens to almost everyone, but, their talent wins out in the end.
    For example Fred Astaire got a bad review when he started out in show business. Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Anniston were in awful programs when their carrer in television began.
    Pull good actors from bad programs and put them in a good show that allows them to get the praises they deserve.

    Yeah, that 1.6 in the second half hour does not bode well for GB. I’m certain CBS chose to air two premier episodes on Tuesday in the hopes it would outdeliver Vegas so that could swap slots. GB will sink further next week – if it hits a 1.5, it’s only because of Smash/BoP. This time slot is begging for a hit. H50 or CF would clean-up. Will CBS or NBC decide to take advantage of it?

    “NCIS” was fantastic last night, best episode this season. Great acting, writing, directing; everything was just top-notch.
    This season has been great so far, with most of the episodes being some of the best the series has had. A show 10 seasons in that can still be fresh and intriguing is a keeper in my book.

    “NCIS: Los Angeles” was also very good. I liked the story, and the acting, directing, and writing were all very good. My only problem with the episode is that the conclusion felt rushed. And when the guy killed his son, there wasn’t really any emotion at that part. It felt…empty.

    I enjoyed “Golden Boy.” Not the best pilot this season, but far from the worst. I don’t know how it’s going to do after its move to Friday, but I’m not expecting much.
    As for the show itself, it’s very well-acted, the writing was good, and the directing was well-done. It seems promising.
    I only watched the show because Chi McBride is in it, and he’s one of my favorite actors. He’s the only reason I want the show to succeed, but I don’t think it will.

    The title is misleading. I believe New Girl outdid Golden Boy and I believe Mindy tied it. CBS didn’t have the top three shows of the night, though it did win each half hour
