    …..Revolution only got 2.0 this week and that is NBC’s top rated flagship new show. SVU got 1.9 and its 14 years old….soon to be 15 !

    @Anthony Parello (AP076),

    First, I would appreciate if you would contain your language Then, as one of the “idiots” who argued for the possibility of that move, I do stand corrected, because I didn’t see Survivor making such a comeback this season, it looked pretty bad when it premiered, but it is looking better and better now. I no longer think that is a good idea. However, I still maintain that it is not such an idiotic thought if CBS is keen in premiering 3 new dramas, since the combined ratings for TAR and Survivor are lower than what CBS gets with its comedies right now. Therefore, it would depend on how high the new comedies would go. Given the great performances of both the reality shows, I no longer think it is worth the risk, but some sort of case could still be made.

    Not only is SVU old, it basically rates half as well in repeats. The residual effect of SVU must be gold. The show will not be going anywhere for a very long time. Even if Mariska were to leave, the show is sustainable without her. Yes, it’d dip a little but the payoff for the show to air more and more episodes will outweigh another slight dip. It can always be aired on Fridays or NBC’s woeful Sundays if/when Mariska leaves.

    Survivor is great this season especially now that Philip and Brandon are gone. Now they need to get rid of Dawn. Can’t stand her. Go Cochran!

    Law & Order:SVU is like comfort food. When everything else is in repeats, you return back to the show. I know I have respect for it because it is an old favorite. I feel certain episodes/issues may also create curiousity. Lastly, NBC may want to think about just keeping Dateline NBC as the lead in to Law & Order:SVU. Because those that watch the newsmagazine are more likely to stick around for SVU. These ratings justify NBC renewing the drama for a 15th season.

    I thought Supernatural was wonderful yet again. The clothing montage, Sam looking like he’s going to fall over when he’s shooting, the beer toss that failed, the kiss on the head Dean gives Charlie in a brotherly kind of way, just a great episode all around.

    Survivor is great this season especially now that Philip and Brandon are gone.

    I TOTALLY agree. Those two were why I didn’t watch the start of this run. being controversial doesn’t equate to being a “FAVORITE”. Those 2 are more suited for Heroes vs Villians, and neither are heroes.
