    Castle is a better show that Hawaii 50. Good stories in each episode but the most important part is that has an amazing cast with a lead man that has a lot of chemistry. This is why it was beating Hawaii 50 on Mondays and this is why it is beating Hawaii 50 on syndication, even if the show has been aired a lot of times, including marathons.
    I tried to watch Hawaii 50 but it is unwatchable, so as expected syndication numbers are weak because this is not a show to watch over and over.Watching it for the first time is even too much to ask.
    2.5 million for a show that is giving TNT the same results as CW Supernatural is just crazy. I bet they are paying less than 700.000 $ for Supernatural.
    It would be nuts from TNT to keep paying that kind of money for this mediocre remake.
    I don’see this show going into a S5. It won’t do well on Fridays, Grimm is a better show. And BB will suffer having it as a lead in.

  • John A

    2.5 million is crazy money for H50. Why would TNT pay that?

  • 728huey

    My prediction is that H5O will edge out its timeslot in total viewers against Shark Tank and Grimm but be killed in the demos, thus ensuring this will be its final season.

  • Kate

    Is there a place to see the 25-54 demo list? I’ve been curious to see how it compares to the 18-49 list. I’m especially interested in the TNT ratings. Do they focus on 25-54? Castle must be doing something right for them to keep playing it with the frequency they are. They’ve played the seasons over and over again. I’m a huge Castle fan, but I’m surprised that with the addition of H50 they haven’t decreased the number of episodes to play more H50. Anyone have any insight?

  • June

    John A ,
    I remember reading the TNT deal was made very early in the Fall even if cbs didn’t put it out until April. Hawaii got 3.9 demo in the premiere and later 3s demos in the next 9 episodes. It was around episode 10th that went into the 2s demos zone and keept trending down until now. So I think TNT got the deal thinking those high 3 demos would remain for all S1 and probably the next 3 or 4 seasons, as had happened in other CBS procedurals, CSI Miami, CM, CSI NY. I don’t think they would had paid that fortune for a show getting low 2 demos.
    TNT won’t be able to play Hawaii over and over and get decent numbers.Wonder if they can get the money back, LOL

    Any idea how the Daily Show did overall in ratings under Jon Oliver, versus the average with John Stewart hosting?

  • Ryan

    “With the failures of Small Town Security, The Pitch, Showville, Freakshow…”

    Remove Owner’s Manual, The Pitch, and Freakshow and add Immortalized and you got a good purge list.

    The problem with their unscripted slate (for the good shows at least) is scheduling. You put Comic Book Men at 11:30 PM on a Sunday, then put it on a Thursday AFTER a new show, then changed the schedule midway through it, and now putting it at Midnight.

    Same with The Pitch. You have it at 11 PM instead of 9 or 9:30 PM to lead into Owner’s Manual.

  • Pepper

    I can see H50 possibly getting a 5th season, IF

    -it holds its s3 ratings on Fridays (high 1s, low 2s)
    -it gets a big budget cut (less flashy guest stars might actually be a good thing – they can focus on the core 4 again)
    -CBS has enough new shows that don’t do well this year

    but only time will tell for sure

  • lakersupbyten

    Five 0 should do great in its time slot…it is a excellent show which continues to go up at the season finale.
    It basically is the only show that actually showcases the pacific rim and ethnic cultures. No other show has done his. That is why this show stands out and attracts so many internationally. It is not typical hollywood. The core 4 are essential to its success. This show at one point had 19 million viewers and averaged about 10 million and above. Hopefully it can stay in the 2s in demos as well again. They were in the 3s ratings its first year. But I agree Five 0 is at the crossroads. If they can focus on the core 4…they may do better again..their chemistry is fantastic. And many nations in the pacific rim who have a lot of money would love to see many more years of this show.

  • lakersupbyten

    Both castle and five o are great together on tnt….btw. It would be great to see the channel go up in the ratings which would be great for both shows. They should buy Lost and Firefly to add to the mix….;)

  • lakersupbyten

    Five 0 has helped Hawaiian business ….and no show since magnum pi has been a big boom to the economy there. I am sure the state will continue to support the filming of such shows in the future. CBS and Hawaii have a good history…and success. Hopefully tnt and with five o and castle it will continue.

  • Pro Wings

    This whole Castle vs 5-0 rivalry needs to stop. 5-0 has moved to Fridays now and their on the same network which means their in the same boat. Both are doing really well for TNT.

    @ Mr Mikey

    You’re actually the idiot as Tito actually has a better judgement based on what I read there. Nobody should be giving the WWE these days any credit over TNA its not even close.
