    Flash Forward & The Event BOTH LOST HALF THEIR AUDIENCE BEFORE THEIR BREAKS. They were dead shows before the break. It can’t be said enough. I would equate Revolution with V. Both shows premiered high. Both shows returned only 3 tenths below what they got before their break but kept falling week after week. V got a 2nd season and I expect Revolution to get a 2nd season then cancelled.

    Revolution, and Charlie, were much improved in the last 2 episodes. Hopefully they didn’t make these changes too late. The story is picking now that they are concentrating “America” as a whole and not one whiny family where each member was worse than the last. I say keep killing off the Mathesons and get the other republics in on the action.

    “Following is now the #1 scripted show for that night. I say that since its viewers are higher than Revolution”

    Um, with that logic actually “Castle” is number 1. It 11.79 million viewers to “The Following’s” 6.57 and a 2.2 rating!

    Whether or not they are sitcoms is kind of besides the point…

    It really isn’t besides the point. Your argument is that airing a comedy at 9:30 out of The Voice would be a good idea. You can’t then point to House as a reason for thinking this when it was a drama that aired at 9PM. My argument isn’t with airing a show out of The Voice or American Idol or The X Factor or Dancing with the Stars its specifically about airing a comedy at 9:30 out of those shows.

    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

    And the fact that despite being tried multiple times by different networks it hasn’t worked tells you what exactly…?

    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

    In truth I suspect The Office actually benefited from its star being in a successful comedy film in between its first and second season more than iTunes. Also that it moved from Tuesday night opposite House to Thursday night probably didn’t hurt either. Not sure Scandal’s rise can put down to Netflix either given that its growth has pretty much been across season two. It ended season 1 with a 2.3 and started season 2 with a 2.0. And on the subject of The Big Bang Theory was a ‘syndication bump’ (if it was anything) not a ‘Netflix bump’.

  • Jared

    Not even the CW will order a second season of a series already dropping below a million total viewers in its first season. TCD is a cute show but it’s dead at this point.

  • Dan S

    @ Holly, IF NBC were to move Revolution to Tuesdays it obviously wouldn’t be a good match with Parenthood. I always thought Wed @ 8pm would be a good move for Parenthood. It could even grow its audience at an earlier hour. I think in light of its tumbling numbers perhaps they should keep Revolution on Mon for the foreseeable future.

  • Alex

    I would equate Revolution with V. Both shows premiered high. Both shows returned only 3 tenths below what they got before their break but kept falling week after week.

    You may also want to point out that V was falling week-on-week before the hiatus. And so in fact was Revolution. More or less.

  • Connman

    I would guess that this is a fluke, but my AT&T U-verse DVR, which had been recording Revolution in the Fall, isn’t even seeing it now that it’s back this Spring (and I didn’t change a thing). I had to setup an identical series after realizing that I hadn’t taped last night or last week’s episodes. It’s almost like my DVR forgot about the series in the same way a lot of people seem to have forgotten about it over the last 4 months!

  • Mari

    Castle had its best episode last night.

  • thesnowleopard

    Revolution is following the same pattern as V, The Event, Flashforward, etc., including what is perhaps the real culprit–lots of complaints about the writing and the acting by certain leads. Genre procedural shows can motor through and survive, but these big serial shows need to be written a lot better or they won’t survive. I suspect that’s something that will improve with time, as TV writers figure out how to do pure serials of longer than 13 episodes (the length you usually see on British shows of that type, which is probably what the cable writers are using as models). But right now, it’s pretty messy.

  • Rebecca

    Good for Castle. Too bad it’s not on next week (or is a rerun, whichever). Only five episodes left of its season.


    It seems the new coaches for the voice have infused new energy into the show and it’s doing well. I don’t miss Christina aguilera or ceelo green at ALL

  • Carl

    I’m not sure how Revolution is compatible with The Voice. Beyond this, I think Revolution has some casting issues – the main female, Charlie, is annoying and wooden and boring. Eric Kripke’s writing mostly benefits with very solid casting. That’s really what made SPN work – the casting of the lead roles.

  • Dan

    Dammit revolution and tcd. Fight back!

  • bjssp


    What’s the difference between 9:00 and 9:30? Or more specifically, what’s the problem with 9:30?

    Perhaps there’s some issue involving comedies airing at that point, but I don’t think there is. If there is, it isn’t clear. Rather, it’s the quality of the shows that matters. It’s easier said than done to find a quality show, but it’s not at all impossible.

    As for shows getting bumps, there are a lot of factors to consider. I’m sure Carrell’s success as a movie star definitely made a difference, and syndication for TBBT, as I noted, certainly did. The issue isn’t so much the venue as it is the fact that a show is getting more exposure. I’m not entirely sure why NBC hasn’t rerun every episode of Revolution on Saturday nights or on one of its sister cable stations, but it hasn’t. It hasn’t repeated any episodes, as far as I can remember, and if it has, it certainly wasn’t in any coherent fashion. Thus, it’s ability to gain new viewers is limited. That might change due to Netflix.

    It’s official, The Voice is the #1 singing talent show over AI. It’s over for AI with their X-Factor type ratings.

  • John A

    Wow Castle had the same rating as Revolution with a small lead in. It will drop to Smash level ratings next season.

  • John A

    I meant Revolution will drop to Smash type ratings.

  • Pepper

    This is honestly what NBC deserves for putting this show on such a long hiatus. What on earth were they thinking?

  • rob60990

    If Revolution would have aired after TBL, it would have collapsed faster.
