    I believe Bates Motel has hurt Revolution and Hawaii 50.
    Bates Motel was Number 3 in last week GetGlue Chart , and the 1.3 demo is getting is coming from Revolution and Hawaii 50.
    Mondays usually didn’t have many scripted shows on cable but that has changed this season.
    And then there is Castle, that seems not to be affected by anything, LOL. That Nathan Fillion drives woman crazy.
    I can see NBC premiering Dracula on Monday next Fall.

    Um… no. Because Rules of Engagement never was one.

    @The End

    Revolution could, and given its recent ratings trajectory, most likely will, drop below 2.0 next week. NBC can always order additional episodes if it happens to do well in season 2, but giving it more than 13 episodes at this point would be foolish.

    Castle \o/

    yay the following…i agree with the posters who don’t want annie parisse’s character killed off…that would suck.

    lol revolution…the show looked good from the previews at the beginning of the season, but it turned out awful…some really horrible acting and writing…assuming nbc moves it away from the voice next season (which they should) it will not be seeing a season 3…

    Revolution is a guilty pleasure for me. I don’t think it’s any good, but it’s decent enough to watch and easy enough to follow. It’s only been during the past two or three episodes that the blackout has been explained. And the explanation has been slight at best. The reason for this is simple: it keeps open lots of story potential and doesn’t make things too complicated in the event that they get only two or three episodes worth of warning before it is canceled.

    At this point, I wouldn’t suggest that the nanotechnology story doesn’t add up or make any sense. Theoretically, nanotechnology has more applications than we can even imagine. The problem with it is that they are so far reaching that the consequences can’t be understood. It is very possible that a robot that absorbs electricity can eat cancerous cells. And they wouldn’t even have to be programmed that way. The real worry about nanotechnology is that any “nanite” designed to absorb anything can evolve to absorb everything.

    With that, I’d like to point to the opening title sequence, which switches between “evolution” and “revolution.” There is a reason for this, obviously. We don’t know what it is yet. My guess is that the science fiction aspects of the story are going to become more prominent once the show gets to the middle of the second season. This is what happened with Lost. And, eventually, the sci-fi in Lost became so preposterous that it bled viewers and stopped making sense. But Revolution is just starting to build the sci-fi mythology; we need to see how it plays out before saying it doesn’t make any sense. In the meantime, look into the grey goo theory on Wiki; you’ll be surprised at how much nanotech can go wrong. There are only a few ways that it can play out in a story, though.

    As for the ratings, this is right around where I thought it’d be at this time of the year.

    “Remember when “Rules of Engagement was a HIT?”

    It’s insane to think that in order for DWTS to match The Voice’s demo, it would need 32.13 Million viewers (based solely on math).

    Not true. Dancing With the Stars got a 4.9 on 11/22/10 with 23.70 million viewers. That’s still a big total viewership number for a 4.9, but certainly not >30 million.


    Remember when “Rules of Engagement was a HIT?

    Rules of Engagement was never really a “hit”, but rather a solid player. Its highest adults 18-49 average was a 4.6 in the 2006-07 season, which was not a huge rating back then.

    How more I like Revolution, how lower the ratings are.
    With Hannibal the same…

  • Maurice


    Shakira seems so sweet and honest + she looks gorgeous. Usher is HUGE and has a good sense of humor. Adam & Blake are just the perfect match together. Hope ratings will even get better.

    I’m from Holland and wish the Voice all the best and happy to see this dutch format do so well.
    But my question to you is; What’s with NBC it’s not a loved tv channel is it?

  • Judy912

    I give the charisma of Nathan Fillion credit for making fans want to catch ‘CASTLE’ in the first place but it’s the writing and the stories that really catches my interest. Of course the chemistry between the two lead characters Castle & Beckett doesn’t hurt one bit. Truly an outstanding series, and I am a newcomer having only caught the series when I found it on the TNT network. It sure did inspire me to begin watching it on the ABC network on Monday nights. Please ABC, give the series a full 24 episode renewal (if not a two season renewal) and keep it on Monday nights at 10/9 PM. WAY TO GO CASTLE!!!

  • Nikki


    Fear not, some of us were paying attention… So where should we be sending you that lovely blue & green hair dye? :)

  • Robert singer

    Revolution is horrible. This show should be picked up by a cable station where content can’t be controlled. I hope it gets the boot

  • BigFlop


    yes please, send me that blue and green hair dye! Promises are promises and these are not made to be broken. lol

    Congrats to Castle and its fans. In the past Castle would hit decent numbers in the Fall, then tumble in the Spring. This year it is the reverse which is great considering shows in Spring decline on a regular basis.

    It also used to be Castle would be stronger behind DWTS, drop considerably when DWTS went on hiatus with Bachelor in the Winter, and tick back up when DWTS returns..

    I was worried about ABC Mondays with Stars decline in the fall and castle but Bachelor hit highs this season and then Castle rebounded. Spring Stars premiere did good in demo but went back to normal and Castle has always managed to hold on or gain in demo so it is nice to see the 10:00 show no longer dependent on these two programs. ABC Mondays have been a success this season, Scandal has been an improvement as well so nice to see something going right for ABC.

    90210 is so pathetic!! Does anyone know if CW gave enough notice while the show was still in production and if it will be aired as a closure for the fans or was it too late? I personally not interested in the show itself but am curious..

  • Brittany Reid

    wow Castle hell ya! If you don’t watch castle, you should start, it’s comedy and crime at the same time.

  • omabin


    Although I would also call Castle a success story this season based on how badly everything is doing, calling ABC Mondays a success is a far from the truth. DWTS is doing horribly, and for sure ABC has to wish to hit something higher than 2.1 from 8 to 10. DWTS needs to be moved to Sundays away from the voice or else it will continue to be far from a success story.

    TerryJacksonNYC: “The reason for this is simple: it keeps open lots of story potential”

    Hardly, The reason is the writers are incompetent.

    “Theoretically, nanotechnology has more applications than we can even imagine.”

    I happen to be VERY aware of nanotechnology having read K. Eric Drexler’s Engines of Creation when it came out in 1986 and been following it since. This is just extremely poor writing. The writers, like on many sci-fi shows and movies, throw in “nanites” because they know ninety nine percent of the audience doesn’t know what the hell they are. It’s a McGuffin, nothing more. It’s like saying “God did it”.

    “The real worry about nanotechnology is that any “nanite” designed to absorb anything can evolve to absorb everything.”

    And that’s been debunked any number of times. The “grey goo” problem is highly overstated.

    The really stupid part is that now, after fifteen years, Rachel Matheson decides that “enough is enough” and she’s gonna hike to “The Tower” and turn it all off. Seriously? If the beyatch knew how to turn it off before this, she should be drawn and quartered.

    Sorry, but no. The writing on this show is pathetic. The premise is stupid. The explanations are even more so. It’s just lazy, lazy writing.

    I’ve figured out what Billy Burke has the best lines: he’s improvising because he can sense how stupid this show is.

    The voice outruns DWTS in ratings. Wishing a swishing well bones wouldst go away on fox for foxier programming
    The following objector experiences the same ratings, yet still fanging itself on the bubble hubble.

    Lol Five 0 got a lock on a 4th season…already Congrats to Castle too… Expect Five 0 to rise up too as the season closes.
