    That’s not very good Hell’s kitchen, I hoped for a 2.5+

  • Michael

    OMG, Smash is performing badly this season!

  • rob60990

    BOP has a loyal audience of over 6 million. Too bad the show skews so old. DWTS may boost it up to a 1.5 at best.

    Betty White OTR shouldn’t even come back. It keeps going down.

  • samurai99

    Well, that is much more in line with what I expected Golden Boy to have.

  • Clarke

    YIKES AT NBC. Their whole lineup was below a 1.0. Just terrible.

  • John A

    I thought HK would adjust up. CW repeated poorly.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    Have Nielsen household members under 50 signed a pact to turn off their TVs at 10pm?

  • Fred

    Taste still should be axed. Too many other higher rated reality contests.

  • Andrea

    Why did GB have to be adjusted down?

    Oh well, hope that the positive WOM will have an effect through its run. Still time…

    NCIS crowd goes to bed at 10pm, lol.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Body of Proof is done for. It’s never going to see 2.0 again, not even DWTS help. If renewed for another season, it STILL won’t be anywhere near syndication and will do even lower ratings. It should be canceled end of this season.

  • Skylar James

    of course DWTS wont help BOP, if even the higher rated The Bachelor couldnt life it up. The only thing DWTS will do is bring in more old viewers

  • SJ

    And Off Their Rockers joins the long list of NBC sitcoms that have gone below a 1.0 rating this season. Congratulations. At this point, I’d vote for Community and Parks to each get 22-episode final seasons and for every other NBC sitcom to get cancelled.

    The Taste is still dead. That is way too low of a result for it to even be considered for renewal.

    Golden Boy is dead, but then what else is new?

  • Andrea

    Something I’m also noticing: DST seems not to have an effect on new shows this week.

    Wondering why?

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Another boring night tonight – no Arrow, No Supernatural, no nothing. Two weeks of nothing but cable shows (except for Revenge and Nikita…)

  • s0303

    golden boy is actually a good show…the premiere was just okay, but it’s gotten much better :(

    mondays the biggest loser more than doubled any nbc show on tuesday…maybe they won’t make it a shorter season next year like they did this year…

  • statik

    the difference between cable & network is getting smaller & smaller–soon there won’t be any difference at all–network is dead killed by comcast acquisition of once proud nbc–tina fey had it right on 30 rock

  • MichaelChickless

    Will CBS be holding a cage match between Chi McBride and Michael Chiklis?

    @SJ — Is BWOTR a sitcom?

  • Ultima

    And Off Their Rockers joins the long list of NBC sitcoms that have gone below a 1.0 rating this season.

    It’s not a sitcom and those weren’t even original episodes.

  • Ultima

    @Anthony Parello

    While overall viewership does decline during the 10pm hour, DVR viewership is probably up during that hour, which would hurt live programming.

  • MichaelChickless

    Ultima, the second Betty White was new. For what it’s worth.
