    ABC should do this for January, or now: Put super fun night on Tuesdays at 9 followed by mixology at 9:30 (they’re both about Friday-night-out) and then mind games at 10. Put the Goldbergs after the middle and trophy wife after modern family; back in the game on Fridays after last man standing (or before) and do one hour burn of the neighbors on rerun Fridays. Oh, and lucky 7 on Saturdays, or just don’t air it.

  • RJ

    Ironside gets one more and it’s out, I’ll bet. Maybe 2 if NBC is feeling generous. They can just repeat SVU or Chicago Fire something there until they have something ready for that slot.

  • Owen

    Survivor :)

  • Ryan

    Ouch at Ironside. That’s as bad as Lucky 7. I guess Trophy Wife won’t be finding its way to Wednesdays after all :(

  • Oliver


    ABC doesn’t want Super Fun Night to air opposite New Girl. Both shows appeal to young women.

  • Greg

    Very solid retention for Back in the Game, only three tenths lower than its premiere.

    Sorry about the other post. I definitely agree with you.

  • grey

    Whoa, “Ironside.” Maybe I won’t bother with it ON DEMAND. 1.3 makes me warry to invest my time.

  • Owen

    Another Owen on here who is a Survivor is confusing me. Nevertheless, Survivor :).

  • Charmed

    Ugh Nashville was so close to 6 million!

  • Michael

    Wow, Modern Family skews so young. To see its total viewers side by side with those Criminal Minds, yet for there to be such a big spread in the target demographics solidifies just how youth-centric MF really is.

  • Joe Daniels

    MF back in the 11’s and has a 4.2, matches last week. Might stay like this across the season.

  • Jay

    I would wait to see if Super Fun Night stabilizes after its initial premiere. I really don’t like moving shows in their first season. Keep it where it is unless it clearly ism’t benefiting from the Modern Family bump.

  • Owen W

    @Owen, i will change it to Owen W

  • Shepherd

    Wow! No adjustments for MF, SFN, or Nashville. I figured with the overruns/ late starts we would see at least one or two for sure.

    An upward adjustment is better than downward for Rev, but this is still going to be a very tough season. – 11% isn’t bad retention from S.2 premier though.

  • HalCapone

    Would someone please give Blair Underwood functioning legs! He’s gonna need them to run as fast as he can away from the soon to be canceled Ironside.

    The Middle is the little show that could. It nearly tied the Ex-Factor in demos and beat it in viewers. Way to go Hecks!

    Great premiere ratings for SFN. Bitter CBS said it would adjust down and it didnt. Terrific for Modern Family not droppi g from last weeks premiere. Back in the Game will likely get a full season just because ABC does not have enough replacements for their comedies. Nashville already below a 2. Wait until SFN drops. It will sink lower.

    Ironside flopped. I thought it would at least hold SVU audience for its premiere.

    Good rating for Survivor.

  • Owen

    @Owen W, Oh, I wasn’t complaining, but that’s still very thoughtful of you. :)

  • Grz12

    I hope Ironside failing means Rev moves to the 10 spot ASAP. Anything would help right now; they’ve got a good product in a terrible spot.
