    2 Broke Girls must be either cancelled or shipped off to Fridays/Saturdays. The “flag ship” of the night is getting lower ratings than Partners from last year in its second episode of the season. Horrible…

  • reidjr


    The difference is 2 Broke Girls is not a new show.

  • Jayzel

    And??? So a 3 year old show with no viewers should stay on the air in a prime slot?? Great logic. No wonder broadcast TV is dead….

  • forg

    As expected, We Are Men flopped. I hope Mike & Molly returns soon

    Nice for Castle. It’s just like The Middle, while there’s no big spike in the ratings over the years, they managed to retain their solid numbers throughout their despite a lot of shows on ABC and other networks declining fast season by season,

    FOX has Sleepy Hollow, Bones, Almost Human, The Following.

    Since Hollow was assigned as a limited series, I say keep it that way:

    Fall: Bones – Sleepy Hollow
    Midseason: Bones – The Following

    But since Bones is aging I think would like to finally end it and replace it.

    Launch Almost Human somewhere else on the schedule and let it take Bones’ slot after it proves itself.

    (though the only “somewhere else on the schedule” would be cutting an hour of The X-Factor or un-renewing Glee.)

    Hostages is between a rock and a hard place. Move it.

  • blackrock1969

    Would it be too farfetched to consider moving Big Bang Theory to Monday @ 9? CBS needs help bigtime on Monday nights.

    Hoping Blacklist and Sleepy Hollow pull enough rating to stay on the air. I’m getting sick of boring reality shows clogging the airwaves.

    Watched the Blacklist E2 tonight it was good, however the FBI chic is a terrible actress. I was glad they brought in the Chic from ER as the CIA agent she was awesome. I also watched Hostages that show is absolutely the worst show. I normally give a new show 4 episodes this one no way.

    Stop with the Revolution bashing about 7 million of us like it and we have yet to see the live 3 numbers on it.
    Blacklist Ep2 3.3 Revolution Ep2 S1 3.4 with real competition,
    Hostages is not competition. CBS was stupid to move H50.
    Those that are bashing it probably did not even watch the season premier of Revolution.
    I haven’t watched nbc for years except for football now I am watching the BlackList and plan on checking out Ironside.They axe Revolution/LOST. Revolution is what it is pure escapism. I will just watch cable and netflix original series.

    Kind off, Thursday is a bigger night in terms of viewership and ads because of weekend movies. Moving TBBT to Monday will kill CBS on Thursday night, its not like they are blessed with hits this season!

  • HalCapone

    Castle did not adjust down, even with a DWTS 1 minute overrun.

  • HalCapone

    Other than Agents of Shield, this is turning out to be an underwhelming new Fall season at least w/r/t network television. DVR usage is reportedly up 12% this year for the 18-49 demo and up nearly double that for the old farts 50 and up.

  • Pepper

    How long until Hostages yanked/moved to another night?

  • Mark

    Nice to see that Sleepy Hollow is doing well. It is actually a good show nice mixture of horror and history:) If I was Fox I would call for a back 9. As I predicted this summer Mom is not doing good in the 9:30 spot, CBS cant be to happy about 2BG either. CBS Monday lineup is turning into a hot mess fast Time to bring back Mike and Molly. I think we will see Black list average out next week between 2.8-3.0 which NBC will happily take.

  • Igwell

    I don’t understand how people can have such dislike for a network re. CBS.

    They’ve just run out of patience for the network to produce something they’d watch.

  • reidjr


    I don’t really agree Sleepy Hallow/Blacklist/Goldbergs/Crazy are all doing very well then other shows are really not doing all that bad.

  • verus

    Number of weeks before Castle is number one in that time slot ? ;)

  • Bayard Hiler

    I hope “Sleepy Hollow’s” ratings don’t fall any further. It’s just starting to get good!

  • Christopher_C

    I wish Hostages could do a little better. 6 million does seem a little pathetic. I like the show and hope it doesn’t get canceled.
