    Lostboy – JJ is taking a backseat to Eric. So all those things you attribute to him are actually coming from the showrunner and lead writer (Eric Kripke). Sure JJ is talking some of it over with Eric and giving his opinions on critical script ideas, but computers looking like the came from the 80s is probably due more to the fact that they needed far less electricity to run than modern-power-hog systems. Mine needs a 750W power supply, while a 286 probably only needs 120W.

    Stan – Rev had no significant competition. The tiny bump in viewers will continue through to the final (still no competition), which will then evaporate as soon as the Fall starts. Being placed out in front at the 8 p.m. timeslot, this show will have to either drastically improve, or die. Currently it enjoys a strong lead-in (the voice), which it will not have on Wednesday. Right now the coin is in the air, as to which it will be. There are far too many variables for anyone to know for sure, though most bet with the way the show has trended since the pilot was aired.

    Live +3 = Ad money and Live +7 = Total Popularity
    Any playback after Day 3 does not make any ad money so if L+3 is too low, L+7 would not matter (which is illogical as a commercial is not more effective on Day 2 and less so on Day 6). Eventually the average commercial take will be reduced and the system will move to L+7, but until then the L+3 rules.

    Since the show has been renewed for a full 22, NBC wants the show to survive. The only real question is if Eric can somehow take the mess and clean it up. Only Season 2 will tell that tale. Removing the nanites from the story could prove to be critical to that success, as long as they do not replace it with more future-tech (rail guns with infinite batteries), or techno-magic (nanites).

    @ Dennis People who watch the voice really aren’t necessarily watching revolution. I think the way the ratings have gone the past few weeks the facts bear that out. Rev has remained steady even after the voice has shed its earlier huge demos. The voice is kind of a unique show like that, in which it really doesn’t create some big lead in ratings for what follows it. I think the whole lead in hype is over done anyway. That being said I do think it won’t get as good ratings as it is getting now, simply because of the tougher shows it will be up against this fall. People watch what they want to watch regardless of what show airs before or after it.

    (the other Chris)
    It is certainly not a 1:1 ratio for lead-ins, but they have proven significant in the past, which is why the term exists. Remove any advantage and a show will lose viewers (initially).

    One point of good news for Rev is that the only significant competition is Arrow (CW). Sure it has a significant overlap in audience, but with the rest of Wednesday being lame (across the board), people will be more likely to watch both (record one) right away thereby scoring in the Live +3. I wonder if NBC got luck, or if they have good spies (probably the latter).

    @the other Chris
    I agree JJ is taking a back seat to Kripke. I honestly believe the second half of season 1 is better written and more exciting. You make a good point about the computers(80’s) never thought about it just reminded me of LOST and FRINGE.
    Right now Revolution has no competition. The Voice has not helped Revolution, maybe in the beginning for promoting the show. The past 4 to 5 weeks it has been stable. The Voice did not help Grimm or CF.
    I am hoping S2 will be as good or better as the second half of S1.
    I have faith in Eric and JJ to make this show what they pitched to NBC originally and to loyal fans. Honestly did people really believe that a SyFY show would pull 2.7 all season long, after taking the show off the air .
    I kinda like the Nanonite theory explains why Rachel/Miles/Monroe/Neville have not aged and why the survivors of Oceananic flight 815, I mean Revolution are pretty health yand have good teeth, and Aaron does not lose weight.
    MAN I LOVE THIS SHOW it is so JJA/Kripke. Now Miles is going to say just another Wednesday instead of Monday.
