    NBC shouldn’t have given Revolution a full season.
    How about putting Grimm on Mon and Revolution on Friday!? That would be more competitive.

  • Mike

    They need to revamp revolution if they want it to do good net season…. They should place it in the Tuesday 10 pm slot

    I took the averages from spottedratings.com

    Congrats to the creative at Castle for making an essentially
    clip show fun. Especially liked Castle’s remark
    about Beckett’s changing hairstyles.

  • Ali

    Always deserved Castle!!!!!

    Oh, how happy I am to see Revolution adjusted down below 2.0. :-) The episode was mostly filler crap, worse than the usual crap.

    Too bad it’s already been renewed. It will die next season for sure.

    Castle, on the other hand, was awesome with all the clips from previous shows. Hilarious stuff. And for a computer security guy, it was fun for me to see Beckett saved by a bad password choice. If I’d been the bomber, she’d be dead now. :-)

    Hawaii Five-O, on the other hand, has officially jumped the shark. The whole TV talk show gimmick was just too much. Stupid beyond belief. Wo Fat was handled abysmally as well. He was taken down way too easily. While I don’t find Five-O compelling most of the time, at least it’s mildly entertaining when they aren’t dealing with ordinary criminals. But this episode was just awful.

    The Following finale was decent. Not too many stupid plot holes other than how Ryan is going to explain shooting the guy in the head. No real way to cover that up – although the FBI is good at that sort of crap (don’t ask how I know.) Highly disappointed that they killed off Annie Parisse, however. The ending was decent, though, as obviously tons of Carroll’s followers are still around. If he actually is dead, I wonder how they will do season two without a serious main villain. If it turns out he’s still alive and it was “all part of the plan”, I’m going to be seriously disappointed at how lame that is.

    I don’t even like The Following but it’s still nice to see serialized scripted drama do well. Can’t take anything away from Fox on that one. They took an expensive risk and it paid off this season.

    I’m just gonna ignore Revolution.

  • davie

    its nuts how well Revolution was doing earlier in the season, that four month break crushed that series.

    At least it’s renewed…who knows. Maybe it’ll be NBC’s “next” Chuck

  • Mon

    That’s where I got the averages too.

    That’s where I got the averages too. But the averages are not updated. They do not include the latest episodes so I added them.

    CBS is doing pretty OK. CBS will be second to NBC in viewers and demos next season. They need to cancel Rules and move Hawaii Five-0. I would schedule the following:

    8:00 How I Met Your Mother
    8:30 Greg Garcia new comedy (multi-camera)
    9:00 2 Broke Girls
    9:30 Mike & Molly
    10:00 Beverly Hills Cops (New)

    FOX will not be as strong next season – Bones will be in its’ final year and The Following (when it returns in winter) will decline – it will loose its’ buzz. Any drama that fills the 9:00 fall schedule will fail.

    NBC: Will do fine with The Voice but they need to move Revolution (next year’s Smash) and find a good drama to fill the slot.

    ABC: DWTS is definitely falling fast, especially in the demos. They most likely will come in either third or fourth for the night. I would keep Castle at 10:00 but it could loose viewers and dip below 2 in the demo depending upon the competion.

    its nuts how well Revolution was doing earlier in the season, that four month break crushed that series.

    Towards the end of its fall run, Revolution dipped into the 2’s, falling as low as a 2.6 on multiple occasions, and never recovered back into the 3’s. Then it returned to a 2.6 in March, which was not lower than any of its fall airings. It only started its downward slide after the initial return from hiatus, so obviously the issue was quality. If Revolution returned well below a 2.6 in March, then you could’ve argued that the break hurt it.

  • Rebecca

    Yay for Castle! That has to be my favorite episode of the season thus far, and in the flashbacks it included one of my favorite scenes ever: Castle calling out, “Killer’s a zombie!” and high-fiving the officer who walks past him. Nathan/Rick rocks.

    “its nuts how well Revolution was doing earlier in the season, that four month break crushed that series.”

    After the 4 month break it returned to a 2.6.

    After the 4 month break it returned to a 2.6.

    After the 4 month break it returned to a 2.6.

    After the 4 month break it returned to a 2.6.

    After the 4 month break it returned to a 2.6.

    Well now that that’s out of the way, last night’s episode pulled a 1.8. The break is not the problem, it’s the show.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    OMG, Revolution. It was still a no-brainer renewal but still.

    I believe Smash did not hit a 1.8 until its 3rd from last episode with only two more to go which also got 1.8s.

    Revolution has hit the 1.8 with 5 more episodes left to go, two of which will not be fronted by The Voice.


  • ABCFanatic2013

    Castle wins again!

  • Tyson

    Go On and The New Normal didn’t have a four-month break between seasons of The Voice. Everyone here saw their post-Voice ratings. Is that what you wanted for Revolution? Never mind Smash’s numbers this year when not airing after The Voice.

  • rob60990

    What’s funny is that several fans of those comedies stated that NBC should have put them on a break so either way NBC can’t win.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Revolution is crashing in the spring the same way Ringer did – the audience finally realized there is no “there” there.

    Some shows do that – the audience gives them chance after chance until they’re finally fed up. Usually happens in the spring when other entertainment options break whatever spell of boredom the audience was under in the fall and winter that kept them watching…

  • Nikki

    not suprised the following adjusted up.. i was very pleased with the episode. and i will be back next season for sure. Does anyone have the season high for the following just curious. Also does anyone know what secret life got? it never makes the lis anymore and i didnt see anyone comment about it in the other post. so if anyone has the numbers could they please share. thanks.
