    Oh, since my 6:34 pm comment is “awaiting moderation” it’s because I have a web link in the text but it was copied and pasted from this page anyway. @Michael, just look at the line that starts “If you’d like to personalize your comments…” in the text above the “leave a reply” box, that’s what I just said, since you asked “how do I get an image with my comment…” That’s how.

    never mind i got it

    Would like dads ti drop another dropout of 1-2million viewers.

  • Christina

    I don’t think Dads is long for this world. How can a show with so many good people in it be so bad? OTOH, LOVED Brooklyn 99.

  • Wanda

    Mindy Project premiered early on demand

  • Alan

    FOX: Dads will die next week. Brooklyn Nine-Nine will drop, but not a lot like Dads will. New Girl will be fine, and Mindy Project will drop a lot, but not quickly.

    NBC: TMSQ was the worst idea for a TV show ever.

    CW: That should be enough to lock up renewal for Capture. Perfect Score and Breaking Pointe will get cancelled, while Oh Sit! stays on the bubble.

  • Ultima

    NBC: TMSQ was the worst idea for a TV show ever.

    I disagree. It was an interesting premise, although the execution left a lot to be desired.

    I hope that NBC and the other networks don’t shy away from this kind of thing in the future. Event and limited format programming is important, otherwise all that’s left is weekly shows that people will feel less urgency to watch live as they can just catch up with On Demand, Netflix, etc.

  • Igwell

    the most highly anticapated show on TV which is SHIELD

    Fair warning that “the pilot is initially confusing, then not all that good.”

    I don’t watch Mindy but why did she chop her hair off. She looks awful.

  • Addrell

    Last Night I watched all the fOX comedies
    Here is what I think

    Dads: 4/10
    Brooklyn Nine-Nine: 9/10
    New Girl: 7.5/10
    Mindy Project: 6/10

    Dads > b99

  • new here

    am i the only one who loves CAPTURE?

  • I Love TV!

    Do you really think ABC’s tuesday night line-up from 9 to 11 is going to make it? Except ‘The Goldbers’, ‘Thophy Wife’ and ‘Lucky 7′ to be cancelled by January

    I was hoping Mindy would see a lift having a A-LIST Hollywood star James Franco do a heavily promoted guest stint. That’s really too bad because I think Mindy and Franco a fantastic actors! I for one can’t wait to watch Saturday (PVR)

    I never got the hype about The New Girl and haven’t watched a single episode. I’m kind of bummed to see Andy Sambergs new comedy do so-so because I really like him. I hope it can do steady next week. I think he’s run out of chances in the movie business so this is kind of his last big shot before a doomed post SNL career playing “The goofy best bud” next to a Hollywood a-list star in a stupid RomCom. I don’t get why he isn’t bigger? he’s the dude you just wanna hang out with!

    CW should be happy with their block for summer shows great numbers!

    NBC needs to do some RETOOLING to TALENT cause it goes lower each season. Howard Stern is not exactly edgy like he used to be and he’s NO DRAW for people in their 20’s and teens as we likely only know of him from our mothers disgusted faces every time he appeared on a TV.

    No! Don’t say that! LUCKY SEVEN is the show i’m most excited about

  • gerry

    no, capture is great. even with the adjustment i still say it gets renewed.

    i think mindy will drop a bit but her audience is fairly established at this point, so i don’t see huge drops. i DO see a HUGE drop for dads, and another lesser drop for b99.

  • Potato

    From this site anyway, they should rename the show “Everybody Hates Mindy”

  • Kissan

    @I Love TV!

    You do know Trophy Wife is one of best comedies this year right? ABC is promoting it and they put the first episode on the ABC website, Hulu and the Airlines. ABC wants this show to be the next Modern Family and I have to admit Trophy Wife is good and has potential. It’s not actually about a Trophy Wife it’s like Modern Family but a little bit racier. That’s why I think ABC didn’t put Trophy Wife after MF because they have potential in this show and they think it can get it’s own audience on Tuesdays because the only competition they really have is The Voice.
