    Awake was canceled, but Hannibal renewed. Unfair.

    The ratings for Mike & Molly would have been a bit higher if the DirecTV DVR’s had properly adjusted. Since they already thought that episode had been recorded (the day of the actual tornado) they didn’t adjust. I knew this would happen so I went in and manually set it. But I’m sure many people missed it because of that.

    Other shows have been pre-empted before and the DVR failed to adjust. If it thinks it’s already recorded a new episode I can see why this would be a problem.

    Did this occur on anyone elses DVR who doesn’t have DirecTV??

    @Kevin I have Dish and my program guide updated with the correct information stating it was a new episode on Thursday. I didn’t have to manually do anything… of course, I still missed the last scene due to the stupid run-over. @Bumfuzzled I have my DVR permanenantly set to record EVERYTHING with 5 extra minutes added… but when two shows start at the same time, it will clip the extra 5 minutes from the previous show in order to start the next two shows recording. Usually it’s not a problem, but I’ve noticed A&E shows generally run a little over… and heaven help you if you are recording the results show of the Voice without 5 minutes of extra recording! You would never see who got voted off. I originally began doing it because the final like 10 seconds wouldn’t record of Once Upon a Time so if there was a big shocker cliffhanger, I always missed it.

    “Does Someone Have To Go” is going to be primed for a Saturday late-night burnoff.

    So CBS runs the Tornado Episode of M&M even though more tornadoes were hitting Oklahoma again this week!

    I would have just made it a one-hour premiere episode in the fall.

  • rgxx

    FOX – just make HK 2 hours long. Do more challenges and longer dinner services and still eliminate 1 person a week.

  • Andrew

    And yet again a Big Bang repeat wins again, although Hell’s Kitchen was close. Very interesting that Parks and Rec repeated better than The Office this week, as well as New Girl and Raising Hope.

  • The End


    That would never happen. Ramsay would demand more money off Fox as it would require additional effort and time on his part.

    “Glee” canceled in France because of low ratings. Apparently, season 4 won’t air in France. The ratings felt a lot between season 2 and 3 , for example : season 2 finale : 1.23 million and 7.2% share and season 3 premiere : 0.55 and 1.8% share

    Love Motive and Hannibal on Thursday nights!
