    I’ve been a fan of Idol since the show began back in 2002, but even I have to admit that the torch is being passed to The Voice. Mostly because Idol is so entrenched now, and people know what to expect when they tune in. Plus with the turnover of judges on Idol, it feels a little bit more desperate to stay relevant.

    “Idol premiered with a 6.0 17 mil. Idol hit? Not so fast”

    Maybe not the hit that it used to be, but it has the advantage of premiering in mid-January, and in January almost all of its ratings were in the 5s.

    Because of its low ratings from mid-February onward (mostly 3s), Idol’s average is around the 4.5-4.6 range. The Voice as a tall order to fill. Last fall they averaged around 4.2.

  • CookyMonzta

    My bad. I just took a look at SpottedRatings. Idol is now in the mid-4.3s. If it keeps falling (those 2s and 3s will really hurt in April and May), and the Voice remains steady, the Voice will have their way with Idol and then some.

    If NBC would go ahead and give Revolution a season 2 pick up viewers might be more willing to watch.I had actually guessed that would be the demo rating but I wish there were more viewers overall.This is a really good show and I would love to see it succeed.The episode last night was phenomenol.Give Revolution a season 2 pick up NBC!!!

  • joel

    NBC is doing its best to kill Revolution. They are apparently involved in some spat with Hulu and aren’t making new episodes including last night’s available for online viewing.

  • CookyMonzta

    @Ashley Crawford: They need to. Dystopian future and sci-fi nowadays get a bum rap on network (VHF) television. Either that, or they produce such shows in such a slapstick fashion that the shows are literally BEGGING to get canceled.

    I’m worried that someone in the front office is going to get so desperate to give Smash one more shot in a last-ditch effort to save it, that they will move it behind the Voice (once again) on Monday or Tuesday. If I’m not mistaken, they have yet to move Smash to Saturdays, like they announced 2 weeks ago! What kind of phony game are they playing?

  • Jess

    I’m surprised Revolution even got a 2.6, i like the concept but the execution of the show is horrible, there’s only a handful of decent people on the show, the rest of the actors are very wooden not sure if its the writing or the actors but something has got to change or the show will hit 2.0-2.1 by the season finale and without the Voice lead-in i would expect it would drop well below 2. just my opinion.

  • CookyMonzta

    @joel: Exactly my suspicion.

  • Mickey

    Still great for Revolution, and glad H50 and Castle are holding up so well. So I’m happy.

    Wish all three weren’t on at the same time though. I only have two tuners on my DVR, so I’ll have to watch Revolution online.

    Interesting how much younger Rev skews. It has fewer viewers than H50 and Castle, but is quite a bit higher in the demo.

  • Evan

    The Voice did awesome! I think a lot of fans switched over from AI to the Voice this season. The thing with AI is that it premieres strong but has really fallen hard throughout its season. Where The Voice premiered to a 4.2 last season and went UP and then stayed around that number. It never went below like a 3.4 unless it was scheduled on a different day and even then it still never went below 3. I think this might be the season where the Voice finally beats AI but you can never tell. The voice could still easily fall you never know.

  • Tested

    NBC has to be relieved to see that SOMETHING they put on (besides football) gets ratings. Why they have done what they’ve done with Revolution and Smash is beyond me. I’m glad Revolution came back with good numbers. I hope Smash gets a bump too.

  • Nick

    • Nice for The Voice . Last fall, it went up 6 points from week 1 to week 2. I wonder if it’ll hit 5s this year or if the high #s are just because of the new judges.

    How I Met Your Mother is falling. I wonder if it will be the anchor next year. Given the falling ratings of the entire block, though, I think we’ll be seeing Two and a Half Men on Mondays in some way next year.

    Rules of Engagement is pretty dead, unless its held for midseason. It’s doing almost as bad as Partners.

    Dancing with the Stars needs to be moved from Monday/Tuesday ASAP. Sunday looks like an OK option, but I’d do Thursday/Friday. It’s got the perfect audience for Friday, and Idol Thursday is weak enough so that DWTS wouldn’t crumble.

    The Following is in rough territory. If it declines below 2.0, it’s no longer the hit that Fox so desperately needs. And then Fox is screwed, especially since Bones is gone next year.

    • What happened to Hart of Dixie ?? Last summer, it had good repeat ratings. It had constant 0.3s, only paralled by Supernatural.

    • 2.6 for Revolution is OK. The problem is, I expect it to collapse next week. It’ll be at ~2.0 by season’s end–Smash levels. And we all know what happened with that.

  • bluejays

    So Revolution got a 2.6 from a 4.8 lead in. Color me unimpressed!

    HFO and Castle both held up well against a show that will still likely be the number one ten pm show on the nets, unless Scandal beats it.

    The Voice is huge, depressingly. I hate karaoke shows. At least Idol and X Factor aren’t doing well too. Now all NBC needs to do is put the voice on every night and they’ve sorted their issues.

  • bluejays

    I meant to say that Idol isn’t doing as well as previous years – clearly it is doing well over all numbers wise.

    NBC plans to move Smash to Saturdays on April 6th.

  • bluejays

    @Martin. I worried about CBS Mondays when they announced last year they were moving Men to Thursdays to boost that night and leaving Monday with a new comedy to slot in that most expected to tank and expecting 2BG’s to be able to anchor the night. That was after one stable season for the night, as the previous year Men collapsed due to Sheen’s escapades and went into re-runs.

    So they left a night that had already seen some major issues previous season weakened when it faced arguably the biggest show on network tv right now – to move a show to Thursdays that already had TBBT.

    It was a dumb move.

    How Phony competition show Dancing with The Stars win overall ratings but lose share and eighteen and forty-nine demographic rating!How! Is family show! But phony competition show! Age 12 and Age 50 watching show more than the voice! But 18 between 49 watching the voice more than Dancing with The Stars! I’m confused! Most of time a show wins all ratings category: Overall, Marketing and shares! Why Dancing with The Stars losing two thirds of category!

  • cimmer

    I’m thinking Revolution will drop again next week. Still doing okay for NBC but I’m not sure a second season is a ‘lock’ yet.

  • Ultima

    Still doing okay for NBC but I’m not sure a second season is a ‘lock’ yet.

    It’s doing more than 50% better than their next best drama.

    Were all of the comments today this ridiculous? I’m scared to look! ;)

  • nielson

    Last nights Revolution was awesome. the best episode to date. I figured because of the long hiatus it would do much worse. 2.6 is pretty good. Revolution and the Voice do not share the same viewers. I have read several comments on the lead in is very important for a show. I can see DWTS that skews old and so does Castle. Then CBS every show is practically a cop show. Pretty much over at CBS their viewers are over 65 and refuse to turn the channel. The Voice is a reality show and Revolution is Syfy both these shows are going to draw a different audience. I was really surprised
    Revolution retained the viewers they had. I watched SMASH last year and can understand why that show would retain The Voice viewers. However it did not. I quit watching SMASH 3 episodes in season 2.
    I enjoy JJ Abrams and a mystery. I hope it continues to remain steady and I am sure a lot of people DVR it. Monday night is a very competitive night at that time slot. Castle,H50 and Revolution. I am not going to say anything negative about anyone favorite 10 pm show. I think this will be my last post on this website. I will probably check out EW or TVLine to see if Revolution gets renewed for a second season. This website is a tough crowd.
