  • Lead in overrated

    So much for having a good lead in. NBC has another hit Revolution, unfortunately they took it it off 4 months. Viewers who watch network television forget or get angry and move on to other shows. Revolution after it’s long hiatus came back better than most predicted. It beat out the 10 pm competition that also have what people call strong lead ins. The show has potential and looks like a loyal fan base. NBC would be smart to announce an early renewal for the show.

    @ Nick
    The producers of the Voice solicited 2 new judges who are not suffering from diva-ities which only improved the show . While the producers of American Idol did just the opposite. With Nickie Minaj as the self-appointed spokeswomen for the show. Minaj has been on a media campaign openly stating only a woman could or would win this season which only lowered AI’s credibility to pick the best contestant. Should a female win AI , her name will always carry a invisible asterisk that signals it was gender NOT talent and she was not really entitled. So sad to see Idol heading to the great abyss.

    That’s an amazing rebound for Go On. But it still doesn’t deserve a renewal if it can’t pull those numbers on its own.

  • Jake

    I love Matthew perry but go on is not funny and a limiting concept. The new normal is great.

  • maplab98

    Good for The Voice :D

  • Alex

    Are people really looking at a 1.6 for Body of Proof and saying that ABC should be considering another season? Are some of these people also suggesting that NBC should kill off Go On for a 1.9? Weird…

  • Jon

    Ha the voice is doing better than idol

  • forg

    While Splash crashed it’s good enough cannon fodder against The Voice

    DWTS Results even with Performance, decent performance.

    “Ha the voice is doing better than idol”

    Let’s see what The Voice does a month from now because it’s still way below what Idol pulled its first 2 days.

  • Bwahaha

    Wow… lowest overall rating EVER for “The Mindy Project.”

    Nice job renewing it, Fox!

  • Gabe

    That’s quite bad for Go On.

    Courtney Cox plus huge lead in and only 1.9. A real shame

  • Kangarookeeper

    @rob60990 The first two days of Idol did well but it was up against nothing but repeats (because the other networks were afraid to go up against Idol. The Voice, on the other hand has faced only new shows. I am sure next year the other networks won’t be afraid to go up against Idol.

  • Diane

    Am I alone? I stopped watching Go On because I knew in 30 minutes I would have to find another channel. Yes lead-ins are over rated but what about “followings” ? My family couldn’t sit through the New Normal/Smash combo . So we just found another network after the Voice.

  • Ultima

    Nonsense. ABC was all new and CBS had a new Criminal Minds on Wednesday; both ABC and NBC were all new on Thursday.

  • bjssp

    I’m trying to think of a reason to renew Go On and The New Normal, but I am struggling. I doubt all of the people involved will struggle to find work in the future, because they are talented. It’s just that they aren’t really clicking here, it seems. In particular, why doesn’t Matthew Perry look into drama, even at NBC? He’s great on The Good Wife and I’m sure he could find the right show.

    Anyway, I’m legitimately curious to see what The Voice does next week. If it actually grows somewhat, I’d love for NBC to start running ads calling it “the fastest growing show in America” or something. It might be, and that’s just very good for the network.

    And really, it shouldn’t give up on comedies on the night. Michael J. Fox and something similar, paired with The Voice, would totally own this night.

    As for Fox and ABC, good on Hell’s Kitchen and Body of Proof. Perhaps the latter really deserves a fall premiere.

  • bjssp


    It’s not that weird. Body of Proof isn’t being given the biggest lead in in the world, and yet it’s still rising, or at least it has in the last two weeks. It had a very weak return, but when Dancing came back, it rose. By itself, this isn’t surprising, but Dancing was down this week…and the show still rose slightly. Perhaps it won’t do anything special next week, but if it does, even if it rises by just .1 or .2, it will have show it’s not totally lead-in dependent.

    The same COULD be said for Go On, but that, too, would have to rise. I don’t see that happening.

    but Dancing was down this week…and the show still rose slightly.

    19 March – DWTS 2.1, Body of Proof 1.5
    26 March – DWTS 2.4, Body of Proof 1.6

  • Alex

    I suspect linking Body of Proof’s rise to the return of Dancing with the Stars is somewhat counter intuitive to suggesting that its not entirely lead-in dependent…

    Regardless the point here isn’t the lead-in factor but the raw number. It got a 1.6 (less than the infinitely cheaper thrown against The Voice Splash did by the way). Its not like the numbers have shot through the roof. Its a bit like saying NBC should consider renewing Smash because it climbed all the way to a 1.0 this week. Sure that’s growth but the raw number is still piss-poor. People are massively jumping the gun on this Body of Proof love-in. If in a few weeks the numbers have continued to grow and the show is pushing toward a 2 then by all means lets discuss the fact ABC should at the very least be considering renewal. But right now there’s no way on earth they should be considering renewing a show that’s season high is a 1.6.

    I use the Go On comparison because its raw number is actually pretty damn good for NBC right now. It’ll probably be their fourth best performer of the week. That might be entirely down to the lead-in but when you’re in NBC’s position having a show you can prop up to a 1.9 is better than nothing.

  • Xerophytes

    Hold on to that slot, Body of Proof.

    Season 3 is so far the best season yet.

  • Jon

    I love how ABC ran promos of splash calling it the new hit reality series. Talking about jumping the gun just a little bit.
