    Hawaii Five-0 was the CBS show with the lowest total viewers numbers so I am not surprised how bad is doing on TNT. I am sure TNT was expecting the weak numbers, a weak show in network TV will no get a miracle on syndication and suddenly turn into a hit.
    Sheri, if the show survives another season it won’t be because it is a strong show, but because the syndication deal.

  • SHERI

    @ MAYA

    That is a TOTAL LIE and you know it!

    5-0 was one of the top shows in VIEWERS in it’s time slot on CBS
    Look at the numbers before you spew your hatred

    It will do fine on Friday nights and in syndication – it also does very well world-wide

    really, HATFIELDS-MCCOY WHT LIGHT, how far back in woods do you have to live to watch this show? Have to have satellite tv, no cable company would be that far off the road.

  • Maya

    @Sheri

    Don’t be ridiculous , a “top show” is not dumped on Fridays by CBS. Or do u think the move was a reward for the “good” numbers?
    The shows that do the worse are the ones moved to Friday or Sunday.
    And the show is not doing well world-wide.Someone posted the numbers here some time ago and they were totally mediocre.

    Does anyone know why Futon hasn’t released ratings since Tuesday?

  • Bill

    I really enjoy Hawaii 5-0 and do not watch Castle. But it dropped ratings-wise big time this past season that why it was moved to Fridays. I’ll be interested to see what the numbers are like now. If H50 got the same numbers in season 1 as it did in 3 it wouldn’t still be on the air. Doesn’t mean it’s a bad show there was more competition this season with Revolution on as well. Hopefully the numbers will be good enough for a fifth season, but I think it’s done this year
