    DWTS may be down (a lot) in ratings, but it still gets better numbers than any of ABC’s new shows this year. I can’t see ABC getting rid of it any time soon.

  • AniMatsuri

    Looks like after adjustments, the majority of predictions for Revolution turned out to be overly optimistic. The ones that voted for 2.0 or lower(placed 3rd in the voting) had the better prediction in the end.

  • Tested

    Still like Revolution and think it will be renewed. However, that is due primarily to the utter disaster that this season has been for NBC. They need to keep anything that’s near a 2 in the demo.

  • Guadalupe

    I’m so glad that Castle is doing great. Love this show!

  • Antonio

    For those who are saying Revolution is collapsing, keep in mind that anyone who planned on watching it through DVR was not able to because the DVR picked it up as a repeat. According to NBC’s schedule, the episode already aired last Monday regardless of the news special that was shown in it’s place. SD ratings are greatly affected by this and I’m assuming the 7 day ratings will be greatly affected as well.

  • Kate

    I’m so happy about Castle!!!!!

  • greysfan

    Go Castle!!! I love this show and I used to love Revolution before it got all weird. Also people might say I am crazy but The Voice could actually be helping Castle in a weird way considering it is the best show at 10pm on Mondays. Plus for it to build on its lead in just shows the show is stronger than ever.

  • ABCFanatic2013

    Yeah go Castle!!!

    Season 6 and 7 here we go!

  • Iggy

    So… NBC’s only shows above 2.0 will be The Voice, the NFL, and SNL. Another wasted year.

    @RSH

    I actually thought the pilot was the poorest I’d ever seen in my life. And then when they increasingly used the old Lost-style flashbacks, it became clear that they didn’t really know where they were going. On Lost, those flashbacks (and flashforwards, etc.) were used for character development instead of for filling in the holes in the plot.

    The grey goo scenario isn’t something that is talked about seriously anymore. But it is a good place to get people interested in an area of science that is hard to understand, since it really isn’t a science in itself but an application of any science that you can think of. Nanotechnology is going to lead to fewer real-world applications than it will to better ways of testing already-existing theories; the study of the very small (and I don’t mean quantum mechanics, of course) is only going to move forward when we create nanotech-driven tests that will allow for discoveries that our current understanding of, say, physics or even biology suggest would be impossible. Nanotechnology will have real-world applications, but it will mostly fine-tune what we already understand.

    Now, the grey goo scenario has largely been discredited. It isn’t that it can’t happen, of course. In order for it to happen, though, it’ll have to be that intention of the scientists to make it happen. And it wouldn’t be global, of course, but it is scary. People are scared of all sorts of scientific possibilities. Just a few years ago, there were people who thought that a man-made black hole was going to swallow the Earth once the Large Hadron Collider was working at 100% capacity. Now, that is a lot more interesting background for a story to me… but I don’t know where it would go. Maybe the Earth would, indeed, have been swallowed and the story would be about a strange version of Earth with completely different physics, which could make for a fantastic visual, but I’m not sure what sort of story could be told.

    This is where we’re going with sci-fi, sadly. All of the good stuff has been explored. Everything interesting is either too cerebral or too expensive to make into a hit. I’m not saying that Revolution is a great show, but I do think it has promise. It does need to become smarter, though. It needs to take people on a journey that is more interesting than what there is thus far. For this to happen, the writers are going to have to take a leap of faith in terms of what they expect their audience might be able to grasp. This does assume that they are intellectually capable themselves and, while I’m not willing to completely discount them just yet, I do understand why you have.

    If the show is really $3m/episode to produce, as noted in this thread, I don’t see it. It actually looks like one of the cheapest shows on all of television… including shows on SyFy! But, hey… that’s just my opinion. Nobody watched Fringe but, except for a few of the episodes in the final season, it always LOOKED beautiful. It was filmed using actual 35mm film, with exceptional blocking, useful effects and competent acting. A lot of this is missing in Revolution, which is why it is, so far, nothing more than a guilty pleasure. (I do enjoy Elizabeth Mitchell, who is doing her level best with a poorly written part; there is no way she can know her motivation, so I’m surprised she is able to come across as human, let alone a primary protagonist.)

  • Pepper

    oh wow, an original of H50 could have beaten that episode of Revolution. NBC should have never let this show go on hiatus for four months, huge mistake

  • kevin

    GOOD JOB CASTLE. This is a very good show, which has handled both Revolutionary(in my opine a dud),and H50. It’s truley the best show on that timeslot. #1, thats for sure

  • CraveRecords

    I’m guessing the fall season will be fairly predictable and look like this:

    ABC
    DWTS
    DWTS
    Castle

    CBS
    HIMYM
    New show
    2BG
    New show
    New show
    *Sending M&M to Thursday nights b/c CBS needs to establish some strong new comedies on Monday to replace HIMYM. Melissa McCarthy is gone once her contract is up.

    FOX
    Bones
    New show
    *They could move comedies, knowing that HIMYM is ending and CBS might not have a hit to replace it.

    NBC
    The Voice
    The Voice
    New show
    *Revolution doesn’t deserve the post-Voice slot. Something with broad appeal does and NBC doesn’t have much to launch a new show. Knowing The Voice will eventually burn out, I think NBC will run it two times a year again.

    The CW
    ANTM
    New show
    *I can’t fathom they’d try to launch an all-new night, but The CW really needs to go for broke. I don’t see them holding ANTM for a summer-only run as was announced.

    If they don’t go predictable, I’d like to see:

    ABC
    Once Upon a Time
    New show
    Castle
    *Disney’s not going to move OUAT from family night, but it would be nice counter-programming and I think Sundays will become sports, reality shows and movies pretty soon. (Well, and FOX animation.)

    CBS
    HIMYM
    New show
    2BG
    New show
    New show
    *I think CBS is good at scheduling and they’ll put the strongest new drama and strongest new comedies on Monday. They’ll expand Thursday with BBT, a new show, 2.5 Men, M&M, and POI. I wouldn’t be surprised if they moved Elementary to Monday at 10, but think it’s unlikely.

    FOX
    Glee
    Bones
    *Bones should run straight-through, followed by a straight-through run of The Following. Glee’s back to Tuesday, shifting two sitcoms somewhere else, or in a spot where it can still maintain. FOX will never schedule it against The Voice, but it won’t change its ratings.

    NBC
    Parks & Rec
    MJF sitcom
    The Voice
    The Voice
    *NBC’s not giving up on Thursday night comedies, but they should (and launch a two-hour block on Tuesday, Wednesday or Sunday). Use The Voice as a launching pad as long as possible. As the highest-rated non-sports show (?), it’s obviously got a a wide audience. They should be programming other shows with a wide audience (like Chicago Fire) and not science fiction or musicals.

    The CW
    Supernatural
    New show
    *I think it’s their only show with an audience that will follow.

  • Ashley

    The Following has great actors. Now if they only had good writers and then the show would be a huge hit.

  • Jim

    ABC deserves credit for matching up demos with DWTS and Castle.

    NBC should add viewer voting on what they want to watch after the Voice

  • tv#1

    I’m really disappointed in Revolution’s ratings. I personally really like the show. I like having a serialized, character-driven, adventure show on TV that isn’t too dark. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy dark dramas too, but the thing is sometimes I feel like watching something on the lighter side. And the problem is it seems like pretty much all lighter TV dramas are procedurals, and I am not a fan of procedurals. So I wish there were a few more lighter adventure serials like Revolution on TV. I will be very upset if its ratings don’t hold up and fall even further. I also don’t think the long hiatus is why the show is rating on the poorer side now. It most likely would have rated pretty poorly if NBC didn’t have The Voice anchoring it in. I think the real problem is the amount of episodes. NBC would have been much better off only making 13 episodes of Revolution, and airing them all in the fall, instead of doing 20, and splitting them up over the fall and spring. People are really starting to adapt to the cable method. They like the 13 uninterrupted episodes airing one time during the year. Seemingly, Revolution is the type of show that should have taken on this method.

  • Jon

    @bluejays…..in what universe was NCIS almost cancelled…..lol. I’ll admit the syndication deal might have spiked interest in the show, but it’s the quality of the show that keeps people tuned in

  • Amy

    Why do so many people here like Elizabeth Mitchell? I’m missing the appeal. Is it because you liked her on Lost?

  • Rachel

    Oop @ Revolution.

  • Jon

    I’m always amused by the amount of people who dump on revolution. So you don’t like sci-fi we get it. That genre of show is not for everybody. I will admit to never have seen an episode, so I won’t comment on the quality of the show. I just have other shows that interest me more, and at some point you do have to decide some shows just aren’t worth the time. One can’t watch everything, just not enough hours in the day. But for those who enjoy the show, kudos to you, and don’t let anyone tell you that you shouldn’t.
