    Yeah, someone really needs to get a life and a hobby :)

  • Randy


    Aren’t you here as much as I am? Maybe YOU should get a life and a hobby? As always, deflect away from the truth. Put me down when I say the facts. Lame of you.
    Here are some more FACTS. The advertisers pay for the shows. They pay MORE for shows they consider good for live viewership and eyes on their ads.
    Guess what? H50 is LOSING in that area on Fridays.

    What’s the ad rate ranking for the Friday primetime hour?

    Adweek places H50’s rate at $58,456, BEHIND NBC’s “Grimm,” which will earn $82,165 when it joins the Friday schedule Oct. 25, AND BEHIND ABC’s “Shark Tank,” which charges $77,870. Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow,” airing reruns on Fridays, is earning $33,125, BUT Adweek lists the show at $139,120 for its first-run Monday slot.

    Highlights from the primetime payout roster, in descending order (only shows charging $100,000 and more are listed here):

    Fox’s new “New Girl,” Tuesdays, $231,570.
    Fox’s “Family Guy,” Sundays, $223,145.
    ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” Thursdays, $206,0785
    CBS’s “Two and a Half Men,” Thursdays, $204,176.
    ABC’s “Scandal,” Thursdays, $200,970.
    NBC’s new “The Black List,” Mondays, $198,667.
    CBS’s new “The Crazy Ones,” Thursdays, $175,200.
    ABC’s new “Marvel’s Agents of Shield,” Tuesdays, $169,730.
    Fox’s “Glee,” Thursdays, $169,535.
    CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother,” Mondays, $168,435.
    CBS’s “NCIS,” Tuesdays, $161,094.
    Fox’s “American Dad,” Sundays, $158,725.
    Fox’s “The Mindy Project,” Tuesdays, $150,950.
    Fox’s “Bob’s Burger,” Sundays, $149,650.
    Fox’s “The X-Factor,” Wednesdays, $146,594; Thursdays, $112,675.
    CBS’s new “Mom,” Mondays, $138,575.
    CBS’s “Person of Interest,” Tuesdays, $138,265.
    Fox’s “Bones,” Mondays, $137,875.
    ABC’s “The Middle,” Wednesdays, $135.050.
    CBS’s“Hostages,” Mondays, $134,420.
    ABC’s new “Super Fun Night,” Wednesdays, $130,823.
    ABC’s “Castle,” Mondays, $129,250.
    CBS’s new “The Millers,” Thursdays, $122,390.
    CBS’s “Elementary,” Thursdays, $121,395.
    CBS’s “NCIS: Los Angeles,” Tuesdays, $120,290.
    Fox’s new “Dads,” Tuesdays, $120,100.
    CBS’s “Survivor,” Wednesdays, $115,717.
    NBC’s “Chicago Fire,” Tuesdays, $110,385.
    CBS’s “The Michael J. Fox Show,” Wednesdays, $110,000.
    CBS’s “60 Minutes,” Sundays, $107,745.
    CBS’s “CSI,” Wednesdays, $107,015.
    CBS’s “Criminal Minds,” Wednesdays, $106,678.

    OK, Annag and the other H50 fans, deny this? Why do you think H50 is doing so poorly in making ad money for CBS? HINT: It is losing in the important demo for advertisers.

    Therefore, it doesn’t make CBS very much money in comparison. CBS therefore depends on syndication for money. But wait!!! They are bombing there also. Oh, my.

  • Alvar

    Why is everyone saying that H5-0 should be wary of Grimm returning? Last I checked Grimm only rates around a 1.5 on Friday. I’d hardly call that a ratings beast.

  • chloe

    could someone explain this charge and expensive cost your talking about please.

  • Mike1

    Mike , if you Google “NY filming tax incentive program” u will fund alot of articles that explain all.

    On Tuesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo approved yet another expansion to the state’s already robust incentive program for film and television production, signing legislation that sweetens the deal for filmmakers who do post-production work in the Empire State.
    The law, which takes effect immediately, increases tax credits from 10 to 30 percent for qualifying productions that do post production — which includes editing, visual effects, color correction and sound mixing — in New York City and its surrounding counties. An additional 5 percent credit — for a total of 35 percent — will be given elsewhere in the state.


    @ Randy ‘Did you know that The Mentalist and The Good Wife are getting a 1.6 and 1.7 demo ratings and they are on Sunday night;’

    So Mr. Facts – why don’t you tell the truth ?

    5-0 is doing GREAT on FRIDAY NIGHTS !!

    9:00 CBS Hawaii Five -0 1.5/5 9.24

    9:00 CBS The Good Wife 1.2/3 8.36

    10:00 CBS The Mentalist 1.3/3 9.35

  • Samunto

    So Sean could actually work well Thurs at 9:30 out of MJF. (which is what is bound to happen in November when NBC changes the schedule after axing WTTF.

  • Chrissy

    Seriously everyone, ignore “Randy” (@mccrazyfan on Twitter). She is a H50 anti-fan who is obsessed with the show’s star Alex O’Loughlin and is bitter because he is happy with his life in Hawaii, working and living his life (and out of her reach). Yes, she desperately wants the show to tank for her twisted personal reasons, hence her severe tunnel vision that is often reaching and makes little sense. She’s belligerent, rants, argues, taunts and picks fights, causing trouble everywhere she goes until she is banned. Her m.o.

  • anna g

    Honestly I cannot comment on those numbers – I am not an expert but I do find few things weird on this list. NCIS gets much less than Fox “New Girl” and it is higher rated show. Also Hostages get more money than H50 and this show ratings like CW network now. Apparently, there is no clear connection between ratings and advertising costs. I read some time here on the board that it is the day of the week that it more important. That’s why last year CBS wanted so much to strengthen Thursdays, because the biggest add revenue is on that day! Friday is the cheapest day, even Sunday is more expensive.
    So this is what I know, if anyone can write more details about this, I will be very happy to get some insights inot the topic.
    And you my friend are really obsessed with H50 – you rant about bad syndication numbers each week, you come here each week as well and rant about bad network ratings and lack of competition. You mock fans of the show for no reason – I’m really curious – what is your problem with this particular show?

    “Apparently, there is no clear connection between ratings and advertising costs”

    I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt that you saw the ad price list elsewhere and didn’t read the text in our post.

    Perhaps you should do that now.


  • Mike 1


    I read too that some shows can get some Premium money added to them because of the type of viewers they ATRACT. I read that about TGW that is loved by wealthy viewers,. I read those viewers are loved by advertisers because they are not easy to reach by them. I hope that helps TGW to be renewed,:)
    That may explain the money New Girl is getting too.

  • anna g

    Thank you Bill for the link. I have read it for the first time – now everything makes more sense.

  • TV Viewer

    Good for Hawaii Five-O! It’s doing okay for a television show that went from Monday to Friday (unlike Vegas which went from Tuesday to Friday and only lasted one season). I think it will be renewed. CBS has been having a lousy Autumn and 5-O is one of their dependable (Friday) programs along with Blue Bloods. If CBS were to cancel Hawaii Five-O, they might get a show that has far worse ratings.

  • Simon

    While I am enjoying Five-0 more this season so far than the last, Grimm next Friday will be taking me away from the show.

    I think if Hawaii 5-0 gets moved to Sundays next season at 9 that could help Sundays and if CSI moves to Fridays at 9 it could hold the momentum for fridays.
    OK Dan, but which show will be on Wednesday then?

  • Randy

    Thanks, Bill.
    That is what I have been trying to say. H50 doesn’t bring in a lot of ad dollars for CBS BECAUSE they do not bring in the preferred demo. What keeps shows like H50 going is SYNDICATION, not number of viewers or the international viewers or a ton of excuses I have seen over the years for shows. I have watched this site explain over and over about that and yet fan excuse bingo still dominates.

    One of the reasons I chose to follow the progress of H50 is because it is a classic example of a show that is hyped one way (especially by CBS) but in reality, its performance is another.So when a show is weak out come all the same old excuses as to why it should go on forever. But there is another reason why I follow it also. It has been marketed so well by CBS that they got TNT to buy it in season one and CBS continues to push it hard. Like I said before. This is an interesting show to follow.

    I understand also that the tax incentives for H50 have been offset by the clean up CBS has to do from all the explosions and expensive stunts that show uses to survive, since the writing is mediocre to poor.

    What will be interesting to watch will be how TNT handles H50. They have done very poorly over there and when TNT bought the rights to syndicate at the cost they paid (2.5 million per episode) they expected much better ratings for it.

    Oh, and why would I go on twitter for a show like H50? What do I care about the lead in that show? LOL Aren’t there like 4 or 5 leads now?
    If you want to disagree with me please do but at least do it intelligently.

    Yes Simon. I think a lot of fans will be like you. They are watching H50 but when Grimm comes they will DVR H50 and watch Grimm and DVR numbers do not help the show and mean nothing.

    To assume that Grimm fans are not the same fans as H50 fans or not the same fans who watch comedies is to assume that we as viewers only like one kind of show. So, does that mean that viewers are incapable of liking different kinds of shows? Of course not. I like comedies and genre shows and procedurals (just don’t like reality shows.)

    As for Randy and Kari, I’m no longer repsonding to childish posts. Both of them are apparently angry that H50 is not tanking like they want, but it’s nto my problem but theirs.
