    I don’t think Revolution was a failure, I just don’t think that keeping it behind the voice for the remainder of the year changed the outcome. Moving the Blacklist this year would be a risky move, for sure, but I think it would be one worth making considering how badly NBC could use it on Wednesday-Thursday.

    I would suggest to CBS to move Hostages to Sat ASAP & replace it with Unforgettable. They have several unaired episodes from last season they can use until Intelligence is ready in the new year.

  • Avery

    CBS saved 2 Broke Girls, but how will it do next year without HIMYM as a lead in?

  • JerryTAZ

    Will Cher as Guest Judge/Performer raise DWTS ratings? She is going all out to presell 2014 tour tix.

  • 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.

    Last year they actually had much better luck putting shows on hiatus than keeping them on the air. Revolution and Grimm (two shows that went on hiatus) both returned with respectable ratings. Go On and New Normal had no such hiatus and flopped miserably in the second half of the season.

    Enjoyed my usual Castle, HIMYM and Mom. Saw part of 2BG and thought it was funny. If they could lay off more of the racial jokes and “vag” jokes, I might watch more.

    Leave Grimm and Dracula where they are on Fridays – good night for popcorn/genre viewing. They’re doing fine there.

    Wow the CW is sinking on Mondays.. Beauty sucks. And Hart has lost a ton of its auidence. They have 1 good night and thats tuesdays.. with the originals and SPN… and then one good performing show on Thursday VD. The rest of the week sucks for them.. not suprised though. And i cant wait to see how terrible Nikita does when it returns. Pathetic network. Cant they just go away now.

  • Wright

    Well on the positive side, HOD and BATB are steady.

  • Bryan

    I’m boycotting the CBS Monday 10 p.m. time slot because Hawaii Five-0 was moved from that time slot. I know some other Five-0 fans have been doing the same thing.

    Without Five-0 on CBS Mondays, I have no interest in any CBS Monday night programming. I’d rather watch The Voice and The Blacklist.

  • Samantha

    interesting that a nyc based show like castle shows a dip in ratings (last week) whenever the NYC Giants or Jets play a monday night football game.

    THRILLED that CASTLE kept the 2.1 Prime Demo ranking and though it means nothing, still kept it’s edge on total viewership at the 10 PM hour. I do think CASTLE is up against the toughest new show competition this season and I am excited that it has still been able to hold it’s own. CASTLE remains my favorite series on TV. WAY TO GO CASTLE!!
