    BATB and TCD are both dismally rated. The fact that they tied doesn’t make either show any less dead. A .3 is bad no matter what night of the week you’re on. BATB will be axed in May, while TCD will be axed at the end of its 13 episode order.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Tried watching Dracula live on Fri & fell asleep, then again on Sat OD & again fell asleep.

    Glad it wasn’t just me.

    @CBSviewer

    I know that is the plan. And that will happen. But I’m talking about season 2. If crossbones tanks and Dracula stays 1.5+. NBC would obviously want more eps. But Dracula doesn’t only have 10 episodes because of crossbones. The two aren’t related whatsoever besides the fact that they are schedules to share a timeslot

  • Joseph A

    Watched Dracula, like the look and feel of the episode, BUT, not really into the Oil vs Magnetic Energy story line. The character Dracula reminds me of Marvels Tony Stark / Iron Man, but I might have less patience then some when it comes to the liberty the writers have taken with technology, but then its a similar issue I am having with the new series SHIELD.

    @SHERI,

    “I’ve got two vacation days coming up and hope to veg out and watch everything !!”

    Enjoy them! Everyone deserves those moments! LOL

    Grimm is weak, not adjusting up. No competition, so perhaps the hype machine was not as effective this time?

    A premier like Dracula not adjusting up is a bad sign. People should have PVR’d it and watched it later, but apparently there was not much interest. I predict it will drop to 1.6 next week (possibly 1.5), and in three weeks there will be talk about it being shipped off to burn-off (which probably will not happen).

    I think NBC is trying to get Rev’s numbers to the point where they can exercise a clause in the contract to cancel it. They do not want to save a show where the show runner keeps changing the premise on everyone. They just want to get it off their books and hope no investors start asking questions as to why no one at NBC is performing any due diligence on their currently funded shows.

  • Jazmin

    I’m so happy for Dracula, let’s hope it can hold these numbers this week.

  • HalCapone

    Me thinks Dracula will probably suck big time in the ratings in the weeks to come post premier curiosity and Halloween seasonal interest.

  • iSayso

    TCD isn’t even good enough to be a crappy webseries. It deserves an early death.

  • Timmy G

    @JacobYates both are doing abysmal and both will be gone, but I’d give TCD 99 percent cancellation prediction over BATB 100 percent simply because it’s on Friday. Plus, Since it was getting .4’s, the CW had to have known it was going to get a .3 on Friday, so basically, I think it’s meeting their expectations unlike BATB. If I were Pedowitz, I’d reduce Beauty’s order and expand TCD to 22 if there’s no choice, but of course both should be done and would be done by December on any other network.

    If the CW were going to decide to be so bold, (which I doubt), they’d launch the two new mid-season shows on Monday, put HOD on Friday, and reality/repeats at 9. Of course then you have to look at the fact that Reign is already getting a .6 out of TVD, a .7 bleed, and it’s hard NOT to put a new show there mid-season.

    Ok but could future seasons of Dracula be 22 episodes or just 10 episodes.

    To my knowledge most likely future seasons will be short as well (could be more than 10 but not likely to be 22 episode seasons). While it is produced by NBC, it is done through Carnival Films (their international series/movie producer- the same one that makes Dowton Abbey), and is designed to appeal to international broadcasters (which generally like shorter seasons).

    Not even sure where to begin with this.

    How exactly is Grimm weak? It was the second highest rated show of the night (and premiered in line with what it premiered to last season).

    DVR viewing is not what causes shows to be adjusted up or down in the final ratings. Ratings are typically only adjusted if the show was preempted in certain markets or had overruns/started late. DVR viewing is something separate and does already count in the Live+Same Day ratings (the ones that are posted daily on this site) provided it is done by 3AM. Any DVR viewing after 3AM is counted in the various ratings reported days later (Live+3day, Live+7, etc).

    About Revolution, that’s not how contracts to produce/air shows work. NBC could cut the order anytime it likes. They would most likely have to pay a penalty of some sort but there is nothing stopping them from doing so now, and intentionally causing the ratings to sink would be of no benefit to them (as it would not make any difference in the penalty NBC would have to pay).

    H50 still steady :) and grew slightly in viewers from preliminary results. NBC shows Grimm and Dracula really did really good and it doesn’t look like they would crash next week. CW had very poor numbers – CD will be cancelled probably.

  • JR35

    Shark Tank isn’t exactly chopped liver in the competition department- or perhaps Chris meant in terms of similar-programming competition for Grimm?

  • r0ckmypants

    @tv2day – “The same old tired Dracula story from Bela legosi and abbot and Costello.”

    Did we watch the same show? I didn’t like Dracula either, but mostly because it bears absolutely no resemblance to anything that Dracula should be. Dracula wasn’t even Dracula for most of the episode; he was pretending to be that American tycoon. Or maybe I just missed the part of Abbott and Costello that was about clean energy?

  • Keanon

    @Martin I like that idea. Grimm followed by Revolution then Dracula. It could work maybe. :)

  • Kenny

    Dracula – nice ratings, great show

  • Hazel

    You should cancel TCD. It’s basically one of those kid shows with hierachy because there are three popular girls and they all wear bright-colored-makeup and by the time you’re a 16-year-old girl, I think you would have gone into more mature colors like green, black, gold, etc. I’m not saying you can’t be a little fun with makeup it’s just in real life most girls wear those colors more often. Also, I’d like to add the neon-colored nail polish.
    Second, TCD is so stereotypical. The normal ordinary girl who had something sad happen in her life gets the hottest boy in real life. Yeah, that’s totally real, oh I am so believing that, yep, it happens at my school also. Hell, no. Let’s do a reality check, here:

    Carrie’s mom died of cancer in the summer and everyone looks at her with pity except the queen bee, Donna LaDonna (the fake name lol) and her minions who just did a roll-of-the-eyes. Then Carrie saw the new kid after talking with her friends. His name was Sebastain Kydd (dude, who tf came up with these names lol). He was probably the hottest guy in school, Carrie thought. Carrie thought he was cute, but she didn’t know if she’d ever be with him in the future, ever (or if it’s the boy crazy version Carrie thinks: I think he is so cuteeeeee!!!! I KNOW I’LL BE WITH HIM!!! Love at first fight!!!! AAAAAH!).
    Later, Donna asked Sebastain out and he said “I’m in a relationship with Taylor Lautner and Shenae Grimes. We’re called the ‘Llama Eyebrows.'”
    Carrie also asks him out and he says the same thing.

    SEE?

    Third, Sebastain isn’t hot. He’s like, teen-girl-boy-crazy-phase hot, but I haven’t went through that phase and I’m 15. IDKER. Anyway, he has the llama eyebrow thing which lowers down his hotness and IDCER what ya think.

    POINT IS, TCD SHOULD BE CANCELLED!!!!!
