    Keegan should (hopefully) be getting the pipe from young Norman Bates on Bates Motel next season..She shoulda got it this year but poor Norm doesn’t know how to close the deal when it comes to her as she is one of his teachers..

  • The End

    @Joseph A

    That’s not a problem with the show or its budget. Megan Ory has accepted a bigger role on Intelligence, this is clearly a move to further her acting career as she was woefully underused in Season 2.

    Besides, the show has a huge cast, even with her gone we’l see all the old and new people come on to the show.

    Infact Michael Raymond-James also known as Neal/Bae(Adult) will be a main character in Season 3 ;)


    Thats still solid viewership for Mike and Molly to be honest with you. Mike and Molly is a solid show for CBS, its weird its even built out of 2 Broke Girls in viewers before. It has a solid following. It will be used midseason but honestly the way CBS cancels, it could come back as early as November.


    Amazes me Gordon Ramsy shows don’t have any erosion when FOX airs his shows almost ALL YEAR LONG… I mean look it when Wipeout, Minute to Win It, Millionaire, Deal or No Deal was aired multiple times a week, throughout year.


    CBS most likly won’t get rid of Mike&Molly even if ratings fall a bit next season- Melissa McCarthy is the biggest comedy actress right now, and is too big for CBS to let her go


    OMG the critics hated the Millers and despised We are Men. They said these shows are so bad. So again Mike and Molly might be used sooner if these crash and burn. Why can’t CBS find something better. Honestly I think moving Person of Interest was a mistake, it did well on Thursday why move it?

    As a bigger fan of elementary than Hannibal, I find it hilarious that elementary can get higher demo in repeats. Still, glad Hannibal was renewed.

    2.39m < 2.74m = 12.8% less total Hannibal viewers than last week. But I don't think NBC care about ratings or pleasing their audience anymore. Bizarrely, that does not seem to factor into their business decisions at all. All they DO care about is what a hand full of pompous elitist critics think. Their philosophy is that of an ostrich with its head stuck in the ground. And why argue with bird-brains whose hearing is, in any case, impeded by sand? Time will show them, and that corrupt core of critics, the folly of their ways!

    edit for final ratings: total viewers drop from last week now 10.8%

    @ TVMAN

    Gordon Ramsey has that something something, that his shows just do well.

  • K

    HK is doing so well, they are already casting for next season. NBC, CBS and ABC must be so jealous of FOX in this regard

  • Billy


    CBS is so jealous of FOX and HK, that the repeat of TBBT beat HK in its time slot.

  • Mathew

    how many episodes does someone have to go? have this season?

  • LisaM

    Keep your chins up, folks. We got lost of new reality shows a-comin’. I can rest my TV for a long while. Well, except for Falling Skies, I can.

  • TV#1

    Mike and Molly is the type of show that does well when it has a popular (new) lead in. It seemingly does not do well when it is by itself. Even so, I am surprised that it will be absent from CBS’s fall line up. I personally am not a fan, but it does rate well. I am sure a network like NBC would love to take it off CBS’s hands if they are no longer interested in it.

    About the CBS Pilots ,,
    The Millers , I like the cast, but the pilot also found the pilot lacking, this show still has a chance if they dig deep and rethink their direction.
    We are Men , they need help with the cast, and wish they had taken more of clue from TBBT which learned you need to appeal to a larger demo.
    Mike & Molly , The show comes back when every they can get the episodes shots , Molly is heck of busy doing films.

    Unfortunately I allow my Bright House dvr to perform the scheduled recordings. Shows like Glee always add an extra minute. If Glee runs until 9:01 and I am recording 2 shows starting at 9, it will only record one since Glee ran over.

    My other pet peeve- the Today Show added yet another commercial after the weather. Then, they cut away for commercials breaks at 7:20 and return with a 15 second spin. More commercials and then local news. I guess they had to add more commercials to pay off Anne and take care of Matt’s ego and salary.

    There’s a coldness about Heche’s onscreen persona that makes it hard for audiences to connect with her, I think. I’ve always found her very offputting and she never seems to be anything but Anne Heche playing a role.

  • snoot

    TBBT repeat adjusted up two tenths

  • The Booper

    I had read somewhere (IMDb? Deadline?) that M & M is replacing it’s creator/XP with a new showrunner and it will take time to set up the planning and filming of the fall episodes. Plus Melissa is busy doing movies.

  • Jon

    Mike and Molly did a tenth or two lower than I expected even. I think its coming to the end of its shelf life
