    Revolution is the best show ever

  • halloween

    lol TCD a smash hit from Flop Empire…and cw did promote the show a lot…no excuses

    maybe time to move Nikita from Fridays

    At least we could probably both agree that NBC should give serious consideration to moving Revolution away from Mondays. I could see the show gaining new viewers thanks to Netflix and some smart marketing from NBC, and if it doesn’t, oh well. Meanwhile, a new drama will get a prime spot after The Voice.

    I disagree about moving Revolution this soon. If NBC does, it is assuring itself of repeating the same scenario that happen with Smash. Right now we don’t know what the bottom for the show is, and maybe if NBC was daring it would test the show out one night without the Voice to see what is “true” audience is. My guess is that without the Voice, Revolution would be around LO:SVU levels…


    any guess to the ratings with both ncis and la in reruns anyone?

    I am aware that ABC and Fox have tried it, to varying degrees of success, but that doesn’t mean it won’t work for NBC. In a lot of those cases, the shows the networks tried weren’t very good. When they were (Castle, 24, House), it seemed to give them all a much needed boost.

    None of the shows you just mentioned were sitcoms that aired at 9:30. I completely agree that shows airing at 9PM or 10PM after these big reality tent poles can feel a benefit. I don’t however think randomly slicing 30 minutes off something like The Voice to make way for a comedy is a good idea that’s going to produce any meaningful results.

    When did NBC try it with The Biggest Loser, by the way?

    Ultimately they didn’t but back in the ’09-10 season NBC originally announced 100 Questions would air at 9:30 after a 90 minute edition of Biggest Loser. They eventually scrapped that idea though and dumped 100 Questions in summer burn-off.

    At least we could probably both agree that NBC should give serious consideration to moving Revolution away from Mondays. I could see the show gaining new viewers thanks to Netflix and some smart marketing from NBC,

    I’ve said previously that I think Revolution should move to Tuesday at 9PM next season. That way it gets to keep a Voice lead-in but also potentially strengthens their Tuesday night and frees up Monday 10PM for a new series. Plus the comedies on Tuesday aren’t working and Fox don’t seem to be budging from their determination to launch a comedy block there which is always going to present problems for NBC doing the same.

    Also I still don’t buy into this ‘Netflix bump’ theory. What shows have experienced this?

  • bjssp


    I wonder if NBC plans an extended break next season, as it did this season, even if it’s not as long. I say this because the network could move Revolution to a new night but, if it craters, move it back. Might be the worth the risk if they feel strongly enough about a new show, and this is in large part why I want to see the L7 ratings. I suspect the show hasn’t so much bled its audience as it has seen time shifting.

    Might any other network pick up The Carrie Diaries? Perhaps it’d be a good fit for ABC on Thursdays or Sundays

    Why would ABC want a teen soap that got a 0.3 rating?


    NBC needs to stick with Revolution on Monday, a switch to another day will hurt it alot. Odds are Revolution bottom out at 1.8-2.0 , which is good enough for NBC to renew it. Revolution will still need a post VOICE spot next season in order to survive. I would prob keep it on Monday next season, NBC needs to take away their disaster comedy block, and put another show on their post VOICE Tuesday spot. NBC’s comedies have been horrid in ratings this year.

  • Lmw931

    The Carrie Diaries is definitely cancelled and I wouldn’t say BATB is safe as it doesn’t do much better. They should really cancel both of them

  • Grey

    Castle!! :D

    Whether or not they are sitcoms is kind of besides the point, as it appears the shows that suffered were ones that weren’t particularly liked, if not outright reviled, by critics. There’s also the issue of limited runs. I get why a network would pull a show, but it’s hard to make a judgement if show has only run behind another show for 7 episodes, let alone 2 or 3.

    And slicing 30 minutes off of the show isn’t random. It’s a move designed to carry the viewer into the next hour and the hour after that while also not giving away too much in the form of ad revenue and hurting the original lead in.

    As for TBL and sitcoms, the network never tried it, so it’s hard to say, but I think this was a poor decision. Imagine what might have happened had the network decided to pair, say, 30 Rock and Community after TBL. It might have turned into a solid comedy block.

    As for Fox on Tuesday, I wouldn’t worry that much. New Girl is strong but hardly invincible. It’s unlikely to have a great lead in next season, whereas a potential NBC comedy will. That’s why I suggested NBC puts its MJF show there. By itself, that could be successful pretty much anywhere, but on Tuesdays, with a great lead in and less competition (in some ways, no competition, as it might be the only other comedy besides NG and will probably target a different audience), it could completely dominate in a way NBC hasn’t seen in some time.

    As for Netflix, it’s a new and kind of untested tool, but Scandal seems to have benefited to some degree. Let’s also recall The Office benefited from iTunes downloads back in the day and TBBT benefitted from TBS repeats, although that show was clearly on the upswing despite a temporary blip when it first moved to Thursdays. NBC will have to do its part, especially if there’s no special treatment given to the show, like featuring it prominently over other shows or something.

    I don’t think so. I believe this year they really didn’t now if the show would fly, so they hedge their bets with a small episode order of 13 prior to the season start. Once it premiered and they seem to have a hit, they extended the run but wanted to protect the show as much as possible.

    I believe that next year the show will have a full order of 22 episodes, but NBC will no longer protect it as it has done this year. It will be given the same Monday slot, and if it starts to falter into 3rd place consistently it will be ship to another night with another show takings its place. I like Alex’s idea of moving to Tuesday at 9PM, but NCIS:LA will be tough to beat.

  • lakersupbyten

    B&B has a good shot at at season 2…hope it happens.

  • bjssp


    Pretty much every show is given an initial 13-episode run, isn’t it?

    As for moving it, I don’t think NBC should expect it to dominate. I think the network would be happy with a solid 2.0, especially if it improved on NBC’s current ratings in the slot. Come to think of it, Revolution getting a 2.0 anywhere on NBC’s schedule would be an improvement!

  • Lead in overrated

    WTH with revolution
    The last 2 episodes were the best of the season. NBC only has itself to blame a 4 month hiatus.
    They thought they would treat Revolution like a cable series, except it is sill considered one of the big 3 networks.
    Man abc and nbc will never learn from a serialized show. Well I am not getting my hopes up fort a season 2. Does NBC have any shows to renew except reality tv. They have CFire Parent trap and grim but none of them even break a 2.0 have less than what 5 million viewers. I bet Revolution it will fall under a 2.0 obviously viewers have moved on. Damn u NBC
    you could have had another LOST but you ruined it. You miscast Charlie from the beginning, even though she has improved in the last 2 episodes.
    Well maybe they will get a pity renewal. Man you would think the creators of LOST and Supernatural would know better.

    lmao at Revolution tying Castle. What a big flop.

  • Shane

    Bet Revolution wishes they hadn’t killed Danny…

  • Holly


    I’ve said previously that I think Revolution should move to Tuesday at 9PM next season.

    Where would the put Parenthood then?

  • Holly

    Sorry, disregard my last question. I was thinking in Central Time.

  • thesnowleopard

    So, Castle in its fifth season got exactly the same demo as Revolution in its first. This amuses me. Almost twice the audience, too.
