    Even thoug CBS doesnt get any of that syndication money??

    Wow.. this is early for the finals to be in…

    Wow.. Neaarly 50M viewers watching OTA networks at 8PM… When was the last time that happen (not sports or award related nights)

  • Rob

    Trophy wife was very funny. Goldbergs, not so much. I’m sure that the Shield helped the Goldbergs as a lead in. Do you think it’s possible that Trophy Wife could have been higher if they hadn’t of released the pilot a month ago online?

  • CBSviewer

    @ Michael

    I can see Person of Interest moving to Sunday next season to replace The Mentalist.

  • Wright

    Great for SHIELD and NCIS!!!!

    Wednesday and Thursday will be ugly for NBC. I thought last year was about establishing Mon-Tues and this year Wed-Thurs, but outside of Voice and Voice lead-outs, I’m not seeing any effort at all — for the second year in a row.

    ABC and CBS both should be fine on those days, though when all said and done and the dust settles, CBS will have to worry about Monday and Thursday (their comedy-heavy nights), ABC Tuesday and Sunday, NBC Wed and Thurs, FOX Tues-Thurs.

  • Ultima

    I think NBC will finally up their expectations to at a minimum, a 2.0 for renewing dramas.

    Relative ratings matter, not absolute ratings. If NBC doesn’t have a half dozen dramas pulling 2.0+, they will renew dramas with lower ratings.

  • CrimTV


    CBS will most likely renew it, if the ratings get that bad, WB will drop the cost for CBS to ensure syndication. Remember, Fringe was practically free for Fox during it’s last season.

    @ Dante
    Yes, in the days when 1.5 and 1.6 were acceptable for a lowly net like NBC. But with The Blacklist doing well, Parenthood being steady (it will be because it always is) and Revolution returning, those low numbers won’t cut it anymore.

    This is laughable, how can you possibly expect to know what Parenthood will do when it’s never a) aired on Thursdays before and b) faced the kind of competition it will face there.

    I think NBC will finally up their expectations to at a minimum, a 2.0 for renewing dramas.

    NBC will not have an arbitrary cutoff point like that. NBC will make their decisions based off of the scripted network average like they always have.

  • eridapo


    I disagree with your assessment on POIs future performance… I think the show will stay around the 2.3 area with an opportunity to grow, and I don not expect it to drop in the spring like it has in the past.

  • Ultima

    Even thoug CBS doesnt get any of that syndication money?

    CBS won’t get syndication money from Person of Interest, however Warner Bros will lower the licensing fee to compensate CBS and keep the show on the air (even if it means they take a sizable loss excluding the syndication deal).

  • cris

    poor NCIS
    GO Chicago Fire & The Voice!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Theisssuesarenow

    What a disaster for POI. It’s been obvious this was going to happen since may and now it’s probably in it’s last season.

  • Justin121

    Considering all 3 Wednesday dramas, Parenthood, and all of their comedies probably won’t be able to hit a 2.0 unless on the rarest of occasions, I think it’s safe to say the renewal bar for NBC will remain sub-2.0.

  • JacobYates

    What gives you the notion that Revolution will be the smash hit that it once was without the Voice as a lead-in?

    Parenthood last year pulled between 1.7-1.9 regularly. Given year to year decline, it will probably be pulling 1.6-1.8 by mid season.

    Blacklist is a good show but it will be down to the mid 2s by mid season, like Revolution last year.

    And CrimTV is right. The sample size is not nearly large enough to assume that mid 1s won’t cut it. Going by last year’s data makes the most sense.

  • Nasir

    Will catch up on AoS in the next two days or so. From the posters here, it appears the pilot reaction was very mixed.

  • Samunto

    @Petar is back! I’ll admit i missed hearing from Petar how great POI is.

  • Brian

    CF is doing fine I expect that it will even get an order of 2 extra episodes like last year.

  • tested

    Kinda awesome to see 3 of the broadcast networks deliver 12, 14 and 20 million viewers at the same time. Broadcast network TV is definitely a long way from dead.

  • Dan S

    NBC is off to its best start in 25 yrs. I expect Revolution will do fine in its new time period despite some naysayers predicting its doom. Granted if it collapses then it deserves to go. It certainly should do a lot better than the lame comedies that aired there last season.
