    Fifth Harmony? As in the X Factor group?

    Doesnt the CW get that no one watches these iHeartRadio concerts they have??? No one cares or could give a crap about them! They are a waste of space on the CW and they shouldnt air them anymore cause they always tank in the ratings…..

  • jamie

    They don’t always tank in the ratings though. Last year did well enough.

  • CrimTV


    On December 18 when hardly any original series will be airing on the broadcast nets it will do better.

  • Smallvillefan21

    they are never up there with any of the actual primetime shows that they air Monday-Friday. Specials like that dont ever do well, sometimes they are low 1 million area, and most of the time in the 0 point area.

  • Smallvillefan21

    I highly doubt it, its the CW! If it was any other network, even NBC, I would totally say yes, but its The CW and we all know how they work with specials and even half the time, repeats on their channel dont do well.

  • Dylan

    Yes sara from X Factor !

  • romo

    I always get free tix to this cause sis works at Z100.

  • Joseph Lambert

    what about cascada? she was in eurovision with #glorious.

    The CW made a deal with the Clear Channel and they’ll be broadcasting a lot of IHeartRadio specials in the foreseeable future. No idea why anyone would have a problem with that, they need as much original programming to start re-building their ratings eventually and this program is perfect for their target demo of W18-34, although I suppose it skews a bit younger than that.

  • eelna

    the cw has a deal with iheart, they have to air, and they don’t care about the ratings. right at the moment, the cw has five shows over 2.00mill viewers, and if it can keep this way, they are really happy.

  • Tiffany

    I’m really surprised CW doesn’t even do that good with these concerts since people are always interested in watching their favorite artist perform in Awards Show. These specials are exactly like award shows minus the awards. Really baffling they don’t get enough viewers. Maybe their sister stations should advertise them more

  • Joseph

    Will this special sink to a 0.0??

    Crim TV notes that much of the special’s broadcast-TV competition may be reruns (salth0ough I thought NBC’s “Sing Off” was going to air this year on mid-December), and that could prevent this special from reaching an embarrassing low rating.

    On the other hand, given that it will air a week before Christmas, this special’s rerun competition could include several classic animated Christmas specials, especially in the 8-9 P.m. (EST/PST) portion.
