    Glad to see Castle up three tenths I was actually expecting lower ratings from last week, glad that wasn’t the case.
    Also Blacklist seems to be steady and stellar rating for NBC at 10 o’clock

    @steve
    NBC dont screw this up like you did with revolution by putting it on an extended hiatus

    Just to make sure I have this straight, your definition of NOT screwing it up is to put it on a four week hiatus for the holidays; then bring it back for a couple episodes, without The Voice as a lead-in; then air a couple repeats; then a new episode for sweeps; then take it off for two weeks for the Olympics; then bring it back when The Voice returns, but without enough episodes to run it until the end of the season without needing to air repeats after new episodes of The Voice.

    Awesome!

    @Ultima,

    I actually think NBC should roll with it and use it to anchor Wednesdays at 9 this year. If Revolution showed anything was that the second part of the year was pretty much useless exposure. Those who wanted to sample and stick with it had already plenty of time to make up their minds.

    They’ve already announced Chicago PD will go there so this won’t work and they wouldn’t do it regardless but I would have rolled with Revolution/The Blacklist/SVU or The Blacklist/Revolution/SVU after the Olympics. If it is going to fail next year, it might as well fail. If it won’t fail, then it should be ready to take over a new slot and free the voice lead-out slot. Win win on both sides I would say…

    Great for 2 Broke Girls. I hope CBS keeps it at 8:30 next season, or they move it to 8:00, since that spot will be free when HIMYM ends.

    “It might as well fail” would imply NBC wouldn’t enjoy at least another dozen or so episodes of We Won the Timeslot With the Season’s #1 New Show. And I’m pretty sure they would.

  • Movie12

    Yes for 2BG!!!

  • Tina

    Surprised The Voice performed so well against the World Series. A number a regular viewers on their site said they would dvr Voice and watch the game instead.

    NBC’s hiatus plan hasn’t been working. The schedule as you described does make more sense.

  • Rich

    I’ll ask again,How can a show win in the 18-49,for example,demo when viewer numbers are so low for a particular show(e.g. Hostages or Mom). Viewer numbers DO matter. No/few viewers+low demo numbers=cancellation. If it can’t get the viewers,it can’t get the demo no matter how you try and say veiwers don’t matter.

    Okay, just ask the ABC spring Sunday lineup how a schedule like that works out. I’m not saying hiatuses always work (they don’t- see shows like The Event, Flash Forward) but they also sometimes work (see- Grimm, numerous cable shows such as Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, etc). It’s ridiculous to say a fragmented scheduling pattern like that works, and then in the same sentence dismiss a scheduling pattern with a hiatus (as they have an equal chance of working- if promoted correctly).

    I wish Mom was higher.

    Uh because when the viewer numbers are high, it doesn’t mean the demo also is (see Dancing with the Stars- second highest in total viewers, yet number NINE in the demo). If only younger viewers are watching the show, it can certainly still be renewed despite younger viewers. Also, I LOVE how you pointed out two shows who finished LAST (Hostages) and Tied for last- (short of knowing the half hours for Dancing- Mom) in it’s timeslot. Besides, the two shows you specifically mentioned are not guaranteed renewals, Hostages is certain to be cancelled, and Mom isn’t guaranteed to return (although it is a possibility).

    @Anthony

    For the past few seasons, when NBC has launched a show to big numbers and then removed it from the schedule for ~2 months, it returns down and keeps on falling. The alternative might not prove any better, but to imply that considering a new approach is absurd or even idiotic on its face is thickheaded.

  • Katherine

    3term,

    The last few seasons haven’t also involved a winter Olympic break.

  • Thi

    Great for 2BG! :D

  • Jon

    @Rich…..you are wrong. Every year shows with less viewers than other shows get renewed. It is the demo that determines this. Remember Vegas……regularly a top 12 show in total viewers but its demo numbers were terrible.

  • Ultima

    @Rich
    If it can’t get the viewers,it can’t get the demo no matter how you try and say veiwers don’t matter.

    When we say that total viewership doesn’t matter, what you’re supposed to take away from that is viewers over the age of 50 don’t matter. Obviously, viewers aged 18-49 matter, but they’re already being measured by the A18-49 rating.

    No matter how many A50+ viewers you have, they will never have an impact on the A18-49 ratings.

    Right, because Revolution was a failure. If you think The Blacklist is also a failure, then yes, it should be moved to make room for something that has a chance to be successful.

    Those who wanted to sample and stick with it had already plenty of time to make up their minds.

    There’s been plenty of shows which have needed more than ten episodes behind a big lead-in before they were self-sustaining hits.

  • Ultima

    For the past few seasons, when NBC has launched a show to big numbers and then removed it from the schedule for ~2 months, it returns down and keeps on falling.

    Wow, your sample size is a massive one show (only Revolution) over the past five seasons.

    No, don’t bring up shows like The Event; its ratings had already crashed before they put it on hiatus. Also, remember that ratings are going to be lower in the spring, hiatus or not.
