    I also got the Malware Warning on Firefox.

    Nice that Dixie stayed at the 0.6, not that I doubted it. To people thinking that the episode was a mess I can only say that everybody could see that one coming from the end of last week’s episode. They will surely deal with everything in We are never ever getting back together. (And I actually thought that they’d split up more couples – now that would’ve been a REAL mess. :) )

    I have a malware warning, but not when I access it through Zap2It site. I’m on iPad.

    CBS doesn’t need GB to be the next NCIS. They need a steady show to go on Fridays.

    I didn’t say they did, but it doesn’t mean they have to move this show to inevitable doom on Fridays.

    The only reason GB actually got a chance on a Tuesday is because they didn’t want another Made in Jersey by premiering on a dead Friday.

    In that case, they were probably better off not airing it, at all.


    For CBS Golden Boy is just a bridge for fridays until the end of the season. My guess is NCIS LA spinoff will anchor Tuesdays at 10 next season, CSI will move to CSI NY’s 9pm Friday slot and a new drama will air Wed at 10. Its going to air all 13 episodes then gets cancelled.

    Which seems pointless, imo.

  • Charmed

    Cult 50% retention :D

  • John A

    I get that Malware thing on my phone when accesing via Twitter.

  • Nick

    NCIS’ demo has been inching downward this season, even though its total viewers has been inching up. Most of its 18-49 viewers must be at the far right.

  • Petar Ivanov

    One more ncis is mistake. People will be tired of these if not already. Remmember my word. 3 hours ncis is hard to follow.

    Why GB get all these promotion is only correct question? In the end POI rerun will beat it.

  • Craig

    What are the chances that NBC will try moving Smash or giving it a better lead in. I really don’t think they want to give up on it and I can see why, it’s turning in to a fantastic show

  • Charmed

    What is everyone talking about? 3 hours of NCIS? Another spinoff?

  • CrimTV

    I got that Malware message as well

  • Unicorn

    Cult will see at least 13-episode run if it stays at this level. I guess fans should enjoy what’s left.

  • Percysowner

    I got the attack site warning as well, then it went away. Firefox running on a Mac. The same thing happened on Television Without Pity a while ago and it took a week or 2 to clean it out. Good Luck.

  • Dan

    @Ross – Its pointless but tis new programming, like Touch airing or Deception or Smash, or Body of Prof or Cult, The networks put money in these series and they will air them.

    @Bill – I got the malware thing too, I thought it was just me for a second.

    @Charmed – Yes now NCIS LA is going to have a spinoff so 3 NCIS on Tuesday because clearly CBS has run out of ideas and nothing seems to work Tuesdays at 10 (Good Wife, Unforgettable, and Vegas have performed less then perfect for the network) Its a spinoff of a spinoff of a spinoff of a show that NBC should have never cancelled. Had NBC renewed JAG for a second season and then cancelled it, there would be no NCIS powerhouses on CBS.

    @Craig – At this point no chance, there are no other slots avalable and at this point Smash will just run its course and be cancelled.

  • GARY

    Golden Boy, populated with how many retreads from previous
    procedurals, but nevertheless I liked it.

  • panda22

    Dammit!…I wanted Smash to stay under 3 million….another 0.9?…FLOP!
    I’ll bet NBC cant WAIT for The Voice to come back!, but it’ll be muts as 8 of 15 episodes will air.

    Its a false economy, a false ratings boost….even if Smash rises post Voice its getting axed, get a smug smarmy fake Kat McPhee off tv!!

    Quality wise, The Mindy Project is leaps and bounds ahead of New Girl so it’s a shame that the ratings aren’t closer together. Hopefully it will gain new viewers when both shows are paired with Idol in April.

    The CW are crazy for not moving Beauty and the Beast to Tuesdays and giving Cult a chance. It’s an interesting concept and there’s crossover with The Vampire Diaries with Matt Davis. Either they never truly believed in Cult to begin with (in which case, why even pick up the show?) or they really want Beauty and the Beast to work (which is just futile).

    I have no idea why CBS thought a show lead by an actor relatively unknown to even the UK let alone the US would work.

  • Dan

    @Charmed – The New Normal retained 98% of its Go On lead in but 1.1 and 1.0 is still garbage numbers. 50%-100% of nothing is still nothing. If Cult built on Hart of Dixie or got 0.5 it might be considered successful, but the drop just means its another 1 and done series.

    Looks like B&TB fans have added a malware to infect HoD fans


  • CBSviewer

    I can’t wait to see Golden Boy being canceled and CSI: NY Renewed ! :)
