    I agree they should put a procedural type show after The Voice next year. Serials nearly always decline badly as they go along. I get what NBC wanted – they wanted to get a new concept show launched so they could then put it on another night but they’ve failed every year to do so.

    They could get a show like Chicago Fire or a new SVU type show up and running giving it the post Voice slot and then move it to a new night to start to rebuild. But whats betting next year they either keep Revolution there or they launch yet another super hyped concept serial?

    It looks like The Following and RVN may share an audience.

    @bjssp I am not sure why rerunning it to bad ratings would have really been seen as “going down with the pack,” or am I not understanding you?

    What I mean by that is that once NBC had developed its reputation for being a disaster network with no interesting shows, the network had a bit of an anti-buzz. Ratings declined all over the schedule and people were hate-watching the ratings. I think NBC may have wanted to prevent that anti-buzz from sullying Revolution. This is on top of the usual viewer fatigue that attaches to any shows that get mired in repeats for too long. I think it was exceptionally stupid scheduling though I’m not entirely certain regularly re-running would have been a good decision. Revolution fans are angry about the long hiatus and claim it has destroyed the show’s ratings while TNN and GoOn fans are angry that their shows didn’t get the same coddling and were left to fend for themselves without The Voice, destroying the shows ratings. I think there’s something to both arguments.

    Besides, Revolution was available through official (and non-official) internet channels to anyone who really wanted to see it and catch up. NBC may have looked at those numbers and decided the risks of reairing just weren’t worth any projected viewer gains.

    The argument about which show is a bigger success seems irrelevant at the moment when The Following has already been renewed and Revolution hasn’t. Also, they’re on different networks, so they’re not being judged against each other. They’re being judged against other shows on their respective networks.

    I wasn’t arguing which show is a bigger success. On the contrary, I was telling someone he didn’t have grounds to say one was a success and one was a failure. Also, I know very well a show’s viability depends on how well they fare against other shows on the same network. Again, I was responding to someone who was judging them against each other, rather than judging them against each other myself. What I said is that both of them are the highest rated scripted show on their own network, which is the only measure by which their success can be judged. (Well, actually, The Following is second to Family Guy, but so close they’re essentially tied for first place.)

    Furthermore, the fact Fox made its renewals earlier than NBC is irrelevant. Revolution is by far the highest scripted show on NBC. Obviously it’s going to be renewed. If NBC had renewed a bunch of shows but not Revolution, then you could raise a question about it. But NBC hasn’t renewed anything–it simply hasn’t gotten around to making its renewals yet.

    As I very clearly stated in my post, I’m not saying Revolution is more successful than the Following. I was merely pointing out to another poster why it’s ridiculous to say The Following is a success and Revolution is a failure when they have the same ratings and the same standing on their respective networks, and why circumstances are not skewed in Revolution’s favour as he claimed.

    I know you don’t like Revolution. I’m not sure I want to get back into myself. I have no interest in trumpeting its success. If it were cancelled, I wouldn’t miss it. But I couldn’t let such fallacy pass without response.

  • Mickey

    And just in case that wasn’t clear enough: I couldn’t care less which of the two shows is more successful. I am not invested in either show, and would barely notice if they were cancelled. As I said, I was merely responding to another poster’s fallacious claim that The Following is a success and Revolution is a failure, and would’ve responded the same way had he said Revolution is a success and The Following is a failure.

    The Following may get un-renewed. You know, cancelled. Whilst it may rival Revolution as this season’s Flash Forward neither show appears to be safe. If 2.2 is a network leader for scripted shows, that doesn’t say much ofr the health of the networks concerned.

    The anticipated demise of The Carrie Diaries does not improve things for Beauty and the Beast – apart from currently having out run the cancelation bear. CW going with 3 new shows increases the chances that it can actaully get them right and secure all a regular 1.0 in the ratings.

    True dat.

    But so long as The Following and Revolution remain at the top of the pile, they’re safe, even if they have fallen.
