    How long until Hostages gets cancelled?

    CBS probably won’t acknowledge that it’s not being renewed until May.

    I wouldn’t expect it to get pulled at this point. If a 1.2 rating wasn’t enough to get it canceled three weeks ago, it definitely isn’t enough now to do so now with sweeps right around the corner.

    0. 4.1 11,65M
    1. 3.4 9,21M….

    I loved episode zero of Revolution!

    Castle’s Performance when compare to last year (first 6 episodes of season).

    S6 demo 2.0833 average versus S5 demo 2.05 average
    S6 viewers 10.88 average versus S5 viewer 10.563 average

  • Ultima

    CBS should put hostages to Saturday and put Big Bang repeats there till intelligence

    CBS held a decent amount of repeats for The Big Bang Theory, but even airing eight episodes at 10pm during sweeps is unreasonable; doing it for a couple months would be impossible.

  • s0303

    wow…the voice beat the world series and football…never thought that would happen :)

  • TVDude

    Nice win for Blacklist fans!

  • eridapo

    Blue Bloods averages 62.8 (oldest skewing show)
    DWTS 62.1

    The Walking Dead 32.3
    American Horror Story: Coven 35.3

  • Snoot

    Wow you don’t see a 2.1 with a 9 share very often. Usually around a 5 or 6.

  • C.S.Strowbridge

    2 Broke Girls seems to have found its stride. It was a smart move by CBS to give it the earlier time slot.

  • Couch Potato

    HAHAHA!!! I knew that Hostages uptick was too good to be true! Down goes Hostages! Down goes Hostages! Down goes Hostages!

  • tvwatcher


    Thanks! Interesting putting the first week as 0 for Revolution, because of no comp (and wider sampling!) I agree that makes it clearer that as of now, The Blacklist has stabilized much more than Rev. did last year.

  • Pepper

    How long before Hostages is yanked? Surely they won’t let it stay in that slot for sweeps?

  • j

    This time last year, Revolution got a 3.0 from a 4.8 – a 1.8 dropoff vs. last night’s 1.2 dropoff.

    Revolution got a 3+ EXACTLY six times. Blacklist might beat it as quickly as possible.

  • JR

    If Hostages wasn’t billed as a “limited series,” there’s no way it would still be on the air. Those numbers are atrocious for CBS both in the demo (which is what ultimately matters) and total viewers.

  • steve

    so those saying the blacklist would be adjusted down what happened? NBC dont screw this up like you did with revolution by putting it on an extended hiatus

  • Paulo PT

    CBS could replace Hostages for TBBT and other comedy repeats.

    8:30PM 2BG
    9PM Mike & Molly
    9:30PM Mom
    10pm TBBT (R)
    10:30PM The Crazy Ones (R)/ The Millers (R)

  • Ultima

    If Hostages wasn’t billed as a “limited series,” there’s no way it would still be on the air. Those numbers are atrocious for CBS

    Just like The Mob Doctor last year!…

    Sometimes networks are just stuck without a decent replacement and have to suck it up.


    I have to say the voice very solid for knockout rounds by this point it usually goes down its staying steady. I love mom I think it should follow big bang. It deserves the big bang push IMO.
