    Well TNN fans have certainly come out of the woodwork today. You can continue posting your essays about why TNN should be renewed, but just know that your “arguments” will never convince those of us who know and understand television ratings and the business of television.

    Oh, and if NBC does renew TNN, we who predicted its cancellation won’t be crying about it. The only people who will be crying about it will be the NBC execs next year who realize they’ve made a big mistake.

    The New Normal and Whitney will both be czncdled. End of story.

    @FringeFan “I’m thinking ABC will renew Body of Proof for another season & possibly put it on Friday nights. While the demos are not that great the viewership is outstanding. It consistently ranks within the top 20 programs of the week in terms of that so it’s not a completely dead show. Plus, it wins it’s time slot pretty much every week in both the demo and viewership.”

    If Body of Proof scores a 1.4 on Tuesday, it would probably drop below a 1 on Fridays (see: any show that has ever moved to Friday from mid-week, most recently Happy Endings. Even LMS fell quite a bit in it’s move to Friday but the fall is still good. The HE fall is not). Not sure why people always think that a show will carry over it’s viewers and Demo to Fridays when it never, never, never, never does.

    People aren’t running away from their TV sets because The New Normal – which I’m assuming you mean when you wrote The Un Normal. Wouldn’t they just change the channel? They’re not watching because it’s a serialized sitcom with terrible writing and acting. When the first few episodes are so bad (and I’m guessing the rest – I stopped watching), people won’t come back.

    Plenty of shows in the top 20 feature gay people and viewers aren’t running from their sets and throwing acid in their eyes. Please, get a grip. I’m worried about you.

  • justcancelitalready


    I think you’re confused about who said what and who you’re replying to.

    But yes, TNN is a very weak show. Weak writing and acting. I watched the first couple episodes. I wanted to like it. I was hoping it would be funny, well written, well acted and a huge hit…how great would it have been to have a gay family be the focus of a huge successful sitcom? But alas it was not to be. Murphy can do better than this. He just needs to cool it with all the tired stereotypes, stop being so damn preachy and hire quality writers who aren’t cheesy and into writing special public service announcement episodes.

    I am a huge fan of The New Normal, and I have to say that in no way does its overall ratings merit a renewal. It was a good show while it lasted, and personally, I will miss it. However, for those of you who are also fans and watched the finale, didn’t you think that was a good way to wrap up the show? I personally loved the ending and thought it was a perfect way to wrap up all of the story lines. If, by some miracle, TNN does get renewed, won’t you be concerned that all the re-tooling NBC would undoubtedly have to do to the show would turn it into a much worse show entirely? Just something to think about I think. I for one am grateful that TNN lasted an entire season and that I got to enjoy it while I could.

    BOP has dominated its time slot for the 2nd week in a row. The public is clearly giving the new cast a chance, and rightly so. Maybe it dipped yesterday because of the episode’s promos that made it sound like there would be zombies! Thankfully the epi showcased rabies. Zombies would have been an exercise in Shark Jumping. I see no toe tags in this show’s immediate future. Plus, the high quality of acting can’t be denied.

  • CraveRecords


    I’m responding to the post below. You are, however, spot on when it comes to why the show failed. Ryan Murphy usually waits until (at least) the second season to go overboard, but I suppose he might have been a little too close to this concept. What really ruined it for me were Justin Bartha’s and Ellen Barkin’s characters.

    A little bit of stereotype can be fun, but those two represent the worst of the Republican and the Gay. There’s no way this group of people would continue to hang out with each other unless they were contractually obligated – and even then, it’s just an episode of The “Real” World. If you removed them and made it about a single gay guy adopting a pregnant single mom’s daughter and his over-the-top friend (NeNe Leaks) raising the kid with the single mom and her daughter staying, I’d come back.

    Kill the Un Normal. It’s dead. It lost 61% of its lead-in in the demo and 9.5 million viewers ran away screaming as fast as they could. It then lost yet another 1.5 million people by the time the 2nd episode came on. This is toxic programming. It’s a text book example in how to kill a network.

  • Amy

    I don’t get what these network executives are doing.

    If I see one repeat on a channel I assume all of the other shows after it will be repeats as well.

    On Sunday ABC aired a repeat of OUAT and a new Revenge.

    On Tuesday Fox aired a repeat of New Girl and a new TMP.

    Confusing much?

  • Daniel

    The only thing I’ve noticed today is that @Tommy Mickens owns all or part of The New Normal.

  • CrimTV


    I know about TV ratings and the strategies of networks.

    NBC want a New Normal renewal, that’s why instead of shipping this final episode off to another night and let Go On or something else get the lead-in, they placed it after The Voice. They are obviously pushing the show, you wouldn’t do that if you didn’t want or were going to renew it

  • CrimTV

    @JB Abajian

    “BOP has dominated its time slot for the 2nd week in a row.”

    Hardly, it was just a tenth above Golden Boy

  • theCroup

    Sure, NBC might want to renew The New Normal. If they do, they can go ahead and renew it. They’ve made stranger decisions before. If you’re certain it’s going to be renewed, then continue thinking that and gloat all you want when it happens. But why be so invested in arguing whether TNN is a likely cancel or on the bubble? Nobody here is a network executive, arguing about it isn’t going to actually change its chances.

  • Can’t remember


    Please explain why. Why would NBC want to renew TNN? Explain the logic. They are trying to make money and rebuild a network , no? How exactly does TNN aid in either of those endeavors?

  • Adrian

    Too bad for BOP. I think I’m one of the few people on this planet who actually likes Delaney and her character. Oh well. At least we got 13 more eps out of it.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    thewatcher: “It is winning the 10 Tuesday time slot which is a tough slot.”

    Excuse me, I’m looking at a Golden Boy and Smash with barely 1.3-1.4 ratings. How is that a “tough slot?”

    “Last week it was number 14 in total viewership among all tv shows including cable and reality.”

    As re-iterated here often enough, total viewers do not matter. 18-49 viewers do. The demo shows they’re not there.

    “It does well over seas”

    Citation please.

    “has an LA tax credit which makes it less expensive.”

    Do we know that remains in effect for next season? The fact that it may TIP it over into profitability this season depends on the ad revenue and license fee which we don’t know. But it got renewed last season as a result of a surge to 2.0 at the end of its run – which it will never see this season and certainly won’t see NEXT season.

    “So those of you who think its getting cancelled just don’t understand how this really works.”

    Yeah, right.

    All that said, I can see the show being renewed as it is a spring show. But I don’t see it being renewed for another season beyond that. And if the ratings drop any further, it won’t be renewed for another season at all.

    The fact that they’re showcasing hot women in a desperate grab for ratings pretty much says it all. I doubt it will work – except on me… :-)

  • Rave Mystery

    I don’t really care to argue about shows I like what I like and others like what they like, so why wish cancellation for a show you don’t watch and others do? I love Whitney and want a 3rd season and you don’t see me wishing every other show to be canceled or trying to talk about why other show need to be canceled or renewed that is pointless.

  • Rave Mystery

    NBC needs to do something to help these shows by giving the viewers a reason to watch them instead of the other shows.

  • mary 1

    @Reese I agree that TNN had a very nice episode and it certainly felt like a series finale rather than a season finale. My impression is that Ryan Murphy at least, believes the show will be cancelled. If you’re doing a season finale you end with a little bit of a cliffhanger. That felt like a wrap.

  • mando

    If NBC renews TNN, NBC just wants to work with Murphy. TNN was at 0.7
