    Only Americans can say its bettter to have 12 mil. then 20 mil..ffs

  • Ultima

    CF loses HALF of TV 9:30 lead-in

    The retentionistas will be shocked when it’s renewed! ;)

  • CBSviewer

    Maybe a new record for NCIS next week ?

  • Saba

    Cf still finished with a higher demo, bewp :)

  • karin

    POI’s series low confirmed

  • Networkman

    Once Biggest Loser premiers, I expect NBC to garner low 2’s in the 8pm hour. Also, I don’t feel it will pull in over 10 million viewers. So I’ll say the network will be looking at 2.2 and around 8 million viewers.

  • Hi


    Nikita is a myth. Awful rating, but it keeps getting renewed and now will have a final season :D

    I want to see if another CW’s show will enjoy this same kind of treatment. hehe

    Not all viewers are equal.

    It’s better to have ~5.9 million viewers aged 18-49 than it is to have ~4.6 million viewers aged 18-49 The advertisers don’t pay for viewers aged 50+, so it really doesn’t matter how many of them you have.

    But, I’m sure you’re right. I’m just a dumb American who doesn’t realize that the value of things is irrelevant and that more is always better! Therefore, I’ll trade you 5 pounds of iron for 1 pound of gold. :roll:

    Elementary is probably the lightest in tone among all the 10pm shows. I can see it blending best with the Monday comedies.

    I really wish there was a way to fit “Person of Interest” and “Intelligence” into the same block. If only they hadn’t moved the show off of Thursdays, they could have done it there.

    @ KittyKat,
    Mario doesn’t know what ratings represent and how relevant it is for advertisers lol. You really think those 50 year olds are after a new car?

    You apparently don’t know why the demo is important either. It has nothing to do with those 50 year old wanting a new car or whatever. It has to do with how easy it is to reach the 50+ demos. Advertisers target the 18-49 demo because they watch less TV, thereby making them harder to reach. The 50+ group come along with the 18-49 demo so if advertisers reach the 18-49 demo they will reach the 50+ers too.

  • Michael

    Whoa! 51 million people watched BROADCAST TV in the 8pm hour last night. When is the last time one can say that?? (sports and awards shows excluded)

  • Dave


    Nikita and The Vampire Diaries are the only “watchable” shows on that generic flop that calls itself a network.

    Go cry me a river somewhere else.

    @Tommy M

    I think Trophy Wife will air its 13 episodes but I don’t see it lasting beyond that.

  • Ultima

    @CBS Viewer
    Maybe a new record for NCIS next week ?

    23 million viewers is certainly possible, although its best days in the demo are long gone.

  • EmaPonche

    poor CW, they destroyed it more than always

  • bjssp

    What are the half hour numbers for CF?

    POI’s series low confirmed

    It’s what CBS wanted so they could cancel POI.

  • Seth

    Wow imagine that another show with Seth Green that no one wants to see, perhaps why? Material terrible, someone needs to wake up and cancel this show. Poor Seth can’t catch a break.

  • Ultima

    It’s what CBS wanted so they could cancel POI.

    The competition to be the most ignorant poster on this site is fierce today, so I applaud your effort.

  • LoopyZach

    CF already hits a 2.4 without The Voice!
    But haters gonna hate.

  • Flame

    Always nice to see someone so passionate about their favourite show, so welcome back, Petar! (Not so sure about CBS’ #1 drama this year though, having moved to the 22:00 hour.)


    Still great for Chicago Fire despite the downtick. News of the show’s demise are greatly exaggerated if you ask me. We only have one data point for the season, but last year it was continually in the Top 3 for NBC scripted shows, and I don’t see that changing much, especially now that Fire is accompanied by The Voice for a lot of weeks instead of just a few choice episodes.

    POI is down, but it airs later and on a new day. It’s above 2.0 for now, which is still great for the late hour, and I can see it given Fire a run for the money. I’d say both shows will reach syndication seasons.

    And finally we’ll have to see about Revolution tonight. As far as I remember it continually lost ratings after The Voice on Mondays the longer the season progressed, and now is on its own at 20:00, opposing Survivor, ABC comedies and an – albeit weak – X-Factor. But that will change once Idol rolls along. So that show could be in trouble coming spring.
