    Very happy for Nashville.

    Wow, really bad for Revolution and SVU, and of course Nashville. Not my kind of show, but NBC should try Revolution at Wednesday’s at 10:00 until the end of the year before Chicago PD takes over in January. SVU is a staple so I guess even an uptick in upcoming weeks will keep it alive. Nashville? On life support. As for CW shows, who cares? Weak shows, awful acting, low ad rates, why even bother.

    Tomorrow for the Yay People!

    I was hoping CM and CSI might adjust up, but those are still solid numbers.

    Are you people on drugs! TTP suck and 0.7 is bad considering it’s the 2nd episode of the FIRST season!

    Actually that was episode 3 of TTP; and don’t forget, last season BaTB went 1.2, 0.7, 0.5 for its first three episodes and got renewed. So far, TTP has gotten 0.9, 0.8, 0.7 which averages out to the same 0.8, with much steadier ratings and a low 0.2 higher than BaTB. TTP is fairly safe for now depending on what their spring dramas do.

    SVU can go to thursday at 10 and CF to be lead in for its spin off on wednesday. That make most sense.

    I wish Nick Stokes was there though

    What happened to Stokes?

  • Steve

    Why isn’t anyone watching Back In The Game? I like it!

  • Brandy

    @allfhertwist. The actor who lays Nick was suspended after a altercation with a writer a couple months ago

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    I’m worried for Elementary tonight against the WS.

    Why isn’t anyone watching Back In The Game?…

    I watched the first episode, and it was cute, but it just wasn’t awesome enough for me to add it to my viewing schedule.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    The actor who lays Nick was suspended after a altercation with a writer a couple months ago

    Wow! I hadn’t heard about that. The guy who plays him does strike me a bit (so to speak) as a guy who thinks he’s too cool for school.

    TTP is in its 3rd episode, not 2nd. Besides, it’s doing fine for the CW. BATB got renewed after dipping to .5 in its 3rd episode.

    HOD is not going anywhere. It’s in its 3rd season and is one more season from syndication. Even if it it’s going to be given the Nikita treatment next year, it’s still coming back.

    It’s still too early to make a call on Reign.

    As for your wish for TCD and BATB to be cancelled, your wish will be granted.

    when does the twitter rating thing take effect?

    It already has. I don’t know what you are expecting though. It has no affect on TV ratings at all.

  • MVProductions44

    Nashville has a faithful following and ABC clearly loves the show… therefore I don’t understand why people think its in so much trouble! ABC comedies are clearly struggling and Modern Family is not the huge hit it once was; Once Upon a Time and Revenge is struggling in their time-slots (even though I understand why Revenge is struggling since it faces the toughest time slot on broadcast television) but Nashville is fine for now….!

  • a p garcia

    World Series affected CW the most, but all shows suffered.

  • jp

    Ok numbers for the World Series…tonight should do better. The SVU episode was good but a very low number. Not good for NBC. Look for NBC to move new episodes of SVU to 10et/9ct and air repeats at 9et/8ct now that Ironside has been cancelled.

  • Brandy

    @Russ HoD needs a full season for syndication.Nikita maybe been a special case of a show getting less than a full fourth season for syndication.CW cancels 5-6 shows a season.Whether or not HoD gets a full fourth season or a short one depends on how many pilots cw picks up, how many freshman series they renew,& Dixie’s ratings this spring.Its ratings have been steadier and better than Nikita’s were at this time.GG got a short final season cause it was past s yndication & the cast wanted to move on.
    HoD needs a full season next season to get to syndication.Why would they have two short seasons on fri for Beast?Its ratings are bad,and will be worse on fri and with the ratings so low already, it won’t make it to syndication(88episodes).

  • Joseph A

    Still liking the numbers for ABC, CBS, FOX, the only network that has to fix itself is NBC but with IRONSIDES being replaced at least the recognize some of the problems.

    as stated in the other thread ,

    I thought SUPER FUN NIGHT would bomb , and the Title does :)
    But the show is actually good, plus last night they introduced us to Oscar Nominated Actress , JACKIE WEAVER , (Silver Lining, Animal Kingdom, btw last one is a great film if you have not yet seen it)
    Would say the show is worth checking out ,

  • Ronak

    Nashville will probably get canceled. Connie Britton is a fine actress who deserves a better vehicle for her talents.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    I’m a bit worried about how low Elementary might go tonight against Game 2.


    why its a special event if you are worried think about next thurs, if it goes 7 games. game 7 will be a week from today
