    I think the most significant take away last evening was the continued softness for those former “mid-to-high-3’s” CBS sitcoms.

    And yes, of course a third season of Revolution is looking unlikely even on NBC. I’m not a Revolution fan (I think it is dreadfully mediocre) but I would still like to see it succeed so that the networks don’t give up completely on science fiction/fantasy genre shows.

    It appears DWTS has found its comfortable ratings level between low to mid 2’s. It will be interesting to see whether ABC maintains 2 showings each year or cuts it down to one since it occupies so much prime real estate as a marginal performer. Tough call since one showing a year might drive interest and ratings even lower. If I were making the programming calls, I think I would keep the Fall and Spring sessions but tweak the format and cut down on the hours. It’s core audience of older viewers seems very loyal so they would probably follow the show whenever it aired. My parents tell me how Saturday used to be their big television viewing night with all first run sitcoms, etc. Obviously, the 18-49 demo is not coming back to Saturday night any time soon or ever but could a show like DWTS ever do well enough as a Saturday first run show? Not sure what “well-enough” is for ABC and their advertisers.

    @ steven I don’t think any show is treated worse than any other show. Everyone has different tastes. I liked Revolution before the hiatus but I hate the writing since they came back which is why I stopped watching.

  • Laura G

    I new the following was doing well when it was trending hours after it aired

  • Alex

    These Revolution numbers are becoming increasingly worrisome for NBC. Its going to be very interesting to see what they do with it next season. I still think Tuesday 9PM is the most likely and probably safest (for NBC) option but we’ll see…

    The CBS Monday line-up continues to look questionable. Clearly they’re going to have to make some changes to their comedy scheduling next season. They can’t keep things as they are on Monday night. All credit to them for trying to use 2 Broke Girls as the star attraction but it just isn’t working and the rest of the night is suffering without a big show dragging eyeballs to the block. Of course they don’t really have any easy solutions presenting themselves right now either.

    Also despite being about as awful as Revolution The Following has held up well for Fox across the run.

  • Austin

    Haha I love smash and revolution but Revolution is definitely the next Smash!

  • Hanna

    1.7 demo at 10 pm for CBS Monday , it is not just a series low , it is a low for at least 14 years. Good job Hawaii Five-0. !

  • Stop-Colin-Me

    I have a feeling that if NBC moves Revolution from it’s safe spot next year, that will be it’s last year. Unless some miracle occurs and a bunch of people catch up on Rev. over the summer, it’s done.

  • thesnowleopard

    Looks like Revolution is on track for two-and-done.


    That’s silly. Many an expensive crap sci-fi show has failed and it hasn’t convinced anyone to give up making them. Rooting for crap just gets you more crap.

  • Justin

    Revolution is so dead. Next season.

  • TV Addict

    Worried about Grimm tonight…

  • Ashley

    Woohoo on The Following!

  • Carl

    I always have so many questions about Revolution’s ratings status. Is it because The Voice lead-in doesn’t seem to work with dramas? Is it because NBC has lost so much status as a network over the years (status as in how many people are willing to try their dramas or comedies)? Is it because of casting issues? Is it because, without some of the behind the scenes and oncamera talent Eric Kripke had in his days at Supernatural, his flaws (poor story arcs, inability to write female characters, inability to figure out how now to take characters too far down a dark path) become more prominent? Is it because people are just tiring of this post-apocalypse format?

  • Cj morton

    @ Steven- it doesn’t treat Revolution different than any other show!

  • The End

    @Revolution is so dead. Next season.

    Greetings Time Traveller, how is the future 1 year from now?

  • Jake

    NBC should cancel all their comedies but Parks & Recreation. Then reinvent itself with the voice, the dramas revolution, grimm, chicago fire, parenthood & L&O:svu.
    Here’s how NBC FALL SCHEDULE should look:

    8p The Voice
    10p NEW DRAMA

    8p The Voice
    9p NEW DRAMA
    10p Parenthood

    8p Voice Results
    9p Revolution
    10p L&O: SVU

    8p Parks & Recreation
    8:30 NEW COMEDY
    10p Chicago Fire

    9p Grimm
    10p Dateline

    Sun. night NFL.

    Midseason shows: Celebrity apprentice, biggest loser, off their rockers, & Hannibal.

  • andri

    I would luv Hannibal moving to Friday soon. Sweetly surprised, Dwts outperformed the voice.

  • davie

    I wasn’t defending Revolution’s low ratings. The show’s not that good. But it’s no secret that a 4 month hiatus has been known to straight kill the momentum of network sci fi shows.

    FlashForward, V, & The Event come to mind.

  • Jon

    Why are people bailing on Revolution? Did something happen to the storyline the fans aren’t liking? I haven’t watched the show, so I really don’t know one way or the other about it.

  • Ultima

    But it’s no secret that a 4 month hiatus has been known to straight kill the momentum of network sci fi shows.

    You do understand that the show has been back on the air for a month now, right? We don’t have to guess what will happen. We can look at the ratings.


  • Chris

    @Jon –

    I can’t speak for anyone else, obviously, but I bailed on Revolution fairly early in the season, when I realized that I didn’t like any of it, despite my best efforts to. There was just nothing there to like: terrible characters, bad dialogue, abysmally poor plot. I regret watching as much of it as I did.

    But I don’t think NBC made a bad call by renewing it. Compared to the rest of their schedule, it’s doing amazingly well. And yes, that’s a sad commentary on the rest of their schedule, but still: it’s getting good ratings for an NBC show, so NBC will keep it.
