UPDATE: They're here!

Fast Affiliate Ratings for Tuesday, March 12, 2013 are delayed due to processing issues. We're not sure when they'll be coming in, but we will update this post as soon as we get an ETA.  We'll also update this post with a link to the overnight report once they do come in. Sorry!

    Seriously though, Chinese hackers?

    You jest but that would be the way to really bring our country down. Forget stealing our secrets and breaking into our bank accounts. Take our TV away and we would be lost!!!

    Nothing good last night anyway

    Ok, what staffer’s stuffed panda and kitchen were used in accompanying photo above. It took a while but my brain finally kicked and then I realized the “watched pot never boiling” analogy for waiting for the ratings. Semi clever.

  • MichaelChickless

    There really wasn’t anything all that good on last night anyway. Though I’m a bit curious to see how Golden Boy did after the NCIS repeats.

  • RyanCanada

    umm, this is part of my day lol, i feel lost without checking the ratings.

    @The Watcher
    they sent an anchor to Vatican City, therefore they must air something about the Pope every half-hour or so. Especially if there’s no actual news.

    SMOKE WATCH, 2013!

    (it will immediately get better ratings than 75% of NBC shows)

    I can’t believe that SMASH used a deep cut Zombies song in their opening number and presented it as a new, original song for their broadway show!!!

    Odessey & Oracle is the Zombies 1968 masterpiece, and a song from that album was reworked as an an origial tune, with no credit mentioned. AMAZING.

    Before one of you say it …….Yes, I know. Nobody saw it.

    As someone who decries loosely scripted (“reality”) shows as the downfall of America, I’m so ashamed and embarrassed to admit I watched the entire Celebrity Wife Swap last evening. Watching Gilbert Gottfried for an hour nearly exceeded my threshold for pain but I couldn’t look away.

    Off topic, but a question to all:

    Since ratings are continuing to slide (even worse than before), why don’t networks have “half” seasons? Early September-early January all episodes run straight through (except for Christmas). And then “another” schedule from January-May with all-new episodes. Use established shows to help newer shows each season. Different shows would air in each “half” season.

    That would be something like cable networks do. Repeats (among other things) seem to drive viewers away because there are so many in a season.

    It may be cost effective, but why not try it? Series might have around 18 episodes per season, but wouldn’t this plan work out in the long run?

    CWS 1.4 4.87/1.7 5.13
    Taste 1.1 3.47/ 1.0 3.25
    BOP 1.2 6.40/ 1.2 6.36

    GB 1.7 8.83/ 1.5 8.23

    HK 2.0 5.15/ 2.0 5.13/ 2.2 5.64/ 2.3 5.84

    Smash .9 2.97/ .8 2.82

    Nice recovery for GB, but its ratings still place it in danger of cancellation. Smash continues its pathetic performance, and under normal circumstances (Greenblatt’s favoritism and the overall shape of NBC) would have resulted in a cancellation announcement by now…

    The 10PM hour on this night is just terrible. I think it is time for CBS to move H50 to this night if it doesn’t want a 3 hour block of the NCIS franchise…

    Ratings are out. 2.2 for Hell’s Kitchen, 1.6 for Golden Boy.

  • Celoriu

    The wait is worth if only for the bear picture.

    Mr. Rockmypants:

    Where is there room? ABC is going to want to keep Suburgatory, for some reason, on Wednesdays before they do the Neighbors, and they will want to introduce new comedies in their best Wednesday timeslot. So Wednesdays are out. Are you proposing they expand Tuesdays or Thursdays to more family comedies? With an anchor that rarely gets above a 1.7-1.8? They know better now.
