    PMSL, what’s next ‘SSTW and The MJF Show didn’t fall too much’?!? NBC and ABC would send out a press release for anything…

  • Michael

    Laughable press release…why even bother?

  • Michael1

    NBC put the fact that a repeat of “The Voice” gets more viewers than “Parks and Recreation” into one of its press releases?

  • DenverDean

    SSTW had TV (R) lead-in at 1.5 (8:30) v. 0.9 (last week) and yet still had a 1.1. I’m guessing there is a chance that might be adjusted down since TV (R) spilled over.

  • RJ

    This is one of the most depressing network press releases I have ever read.

  • TimsDale4ever

    BOTH of these new shows suck big time. Sorry, but it is what it is. If they both were getting huge ratings I would be going WTF?

  • Wright

    Revolution season 3 here we come!!!!

  • TVDude

    I guess it’s every network’s dream to maintain poor ratings…

  • j

    Maybe the writers of these get paid by the number of releases they do…

  • Igwell

    until the finals when they adjust down inexplicably?

  • glen

    These as the type of public-relations people you want working for you – they have the ability to make the sinking of Titanic sound positive.

  • Jan Burton

    To NBC: “Parenthood” is one of the classiest shows with a great cast on TV. To drop it would be a sin. A few character adjustments might help (lose Lauren Graham, or quit making her such a twit. She should have gone with Ray Ramano.) Just please, PLEASE do not drop the show!
