    How much do you want to bet that CSI:NY is getting renewed AGAIN? I’ll do money.

  • Brandy

    Does cable work like broadcast in that advertisers pay only for the demo and not total viewers?Even if the demo is 18-49?Like abcfamily which targets mainly 12-34 females and 18-34 females?

  • GARebelman

    What NBC /should/ do is bump the Voice Results to Tuesday at 9PM instead of 8PM and put Hannibal Tuesday at 10PM and throw Smash to Thursday at 10PM to burn off the 16 wasted episodes they made.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    I haven’t had an opportunity to read the comments in the preliminary section yet, but if the second episode ratings for Golden Boy are stable (doubtful) could you envision a scenario where Vegas gets moved to Friday nights (like the Defenders a couple of seasons ago) rather than Golden Boy.

    Since I believe both shows to still be obvious choices for cancellation this would likely represent rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic anyway.

    Jennifer hudson do not help Smash?

  • BigBrotherFan

    Sorry THE NEW FLOP FANS but that show is getting the axe for sure.
    If they where SMART they should of added MATT BOMER as a series regular to even out those TWO STEREOTYPE characters agh
    but no…

  • Rebecca

    I got that attack site warning here too, just now.

    Good for Mindy. I like Smash, even McPhee. I’ll just keep watching until it’s gone, might not be long now – or it’ll just finish up in May and not return in the fall.

    @BigBrother Fan

    What is with you and capitalizing words?

  • Steve

    Smash is so finished.
    Harry’s Law had better 18-49 demo and almost triple the viewers and got canned.

    I am still keeping my fingers crossed for NBC to renew Parks & Rec, Community and The New Normal.

    “Does cable work like broadcast in that advertisers pay only for the demo and not total viewers?Even if the demo is 18-49?Like abcfamily which targets mainly 12-34 females and 18-34 females?”

    All national advertising, cable & broadcast is priced by age/gender demos. But as you noted, different cable networks price using different ones. While we don’t have any sort of “master list”, ABC Family certainly targets young women as you noted.

    “BTW, Bill Gorman, Google (the website, not Chrome) is telling me “This site may harm your computer”. Just FYI.”

    We are investigating.

    Wow, Safari is giving me no sign of this malware. Is this Apple trying to keep me in blissful ignorance of items that may harm my computer? I don’t want to roll the dice just because I have a Mac. Is Safari the new IE? SMH.

  • Giz

    I tried to watch Smash again last night (I never miss it!) and all I wanted was Jennifer Hudson to leave, to move on, to guest star somewhere else. What value, what purpose, what importance (there isn’t any whatsoever) to the storyline?? She may be a star but the writers really blew it and she’s got to go ASAP. I can’t watch anymore!

  • Perdix

    Nice. I hopee AI-NG will boost this show in 2’s.

  • Ellen

    NBC needs to pull Smash off of the schedule as soon as it is feasible. Replace with CF or Revolution repeats.

    The New Normal is lead-in dependent like most freshman shows. Its collapse has not been as drasmatic as Goon’s. Hopefully someone at NBC sees that this show needs a good lead-in in order to develop a fan-base.

  • Ellen

    It was looking dire for Mindy earlier this winter, but now it seems like a safe bet for renewal.

  • Keith

    I got the Malware warning too at work and at home. Looks like Emily Thorne is getting her Revenge on Max. ;-p

  • Jordan

    Malware Ahead on Google Chrome?? What’s up with this??


    GO MINDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE MINDY PROJECT IS A MONSTER! Hehe. :-)


    NBC should premiere THE VOICE now! As in, now!!!!!!!!!! A sinking ship. Bleh! :-P
