    What I mean by ever is this year… Wanted to clarify that.. No way it’s getting that low this season.

    @issues – keep a dictionary close by because it’s apparent you have no idea of the meaning of the words you are using – collasping? 12 million viewers and you use that term? You gave serious issues!

  • ron

    @headless or is that brainless? As one person correctly pointed out, the intelligent show is way over the head of the 18-24 who have an attention span of a knat. They are all over the place and to sit and watch a well written tv show is just not their thing; put on a music show which they can check in from time to time and that is about their speed.

    25-54 really should be the key demo, because, as people have stated, advertisers should be concerned with older potential customers, who actually can buy stuff on their own.

    Quick question, and not sure if it’s been answered before- for the under-18 demographic- they too are included in the ratings, yes? So, we always say “skews old,” but if they’re included in the sampling, couldn’t those shows, theoretically, be attracting 17-and-under viewers, along with 50-plus? :) On that same note, though, they don’t really make buying decisions, so the advertisers don’t care. hehe

    Gnat is spelled with a g.

    The decline of POI is tragic. This was a great show with a terrific premise: four damaged people fight crime while struggling with personal demons as they reestablish connections and relearn trust. The machine was a fantastic fifth character in this mix.

    Now with the dreadful addition of Shaw and the egregious extension if a Root beyond her expiration date, the show is losing focus. Shaw is redundant. The show already had an emotionally troubled killer in Reese and a kickass female in Carter. Shaw brings nothing new to the show and her insertion eats up time that should be devoted to the relationships among the main four characters.

    awesome for originals! cw has another strong night on their hands!

    Nonsense.

    18-24 is when many people buy their first car. No matter if it’s new or used, they’re going to need to buy car insurance.

    That’s also the age when people need to get their own cable provider for the first time, so branding and getting in as their first buy is very important.

    Branding on other products (like fast food) is also much more effective at that age than amongst adults 50-55.

    Tech gadgets (phones, tablets, etc.) are also extremely big sellers among that demographic.

    Movies (either theatrical or home releases) are consumed by adults 18-24 at a much greater rate than adults 50-55.

    And so on.

    Maybe the writers of POI have a storyline coming up that involves more Fusco. Just because some of the characters have not been shown as much , doesn’t mean it will continue that way. As far as Shaw, I just watched the episode with the little girl, to me it showed she was starting to open up a little. You can’t expect it to happen all at once.
    And is anyone else wondering who the “mystery” woman is behind the machine now? I think it’s Zoe.

    So happy The Originals was adjusted up. I was hoping for this yesterday when I saw the preliminary ratings! A really great show so far. Cheers!

    “…but it is true that when quite a few people share the same or a similar what you call a “whim” (though I’d say opinion) and collectively choose not to watch a tv show, then yes, that does have bearing on ratings.”

    And again we come back to the core of your delusion. This idea that you and the few people who share your anti-Shaw views are somehow legion. You’re not.

    Let me use Supernatural again to offer another comparison. Online there are Sam girls who hate the emphasis on Dean episodes. Then there are Dean girls who are sick and tired of the storylines always focusing on Sam, meaning Dean gets shafted into secondary character mode. Both groups having entirely subjective opinions of course, based on their own preference as to which brother they want to see more of. Then you’ve got those that hate Castiel and any episode of the show that he stars in. Then there’s the Charlie haters, those that want Bobby back, those that believe the show has sucked ever since season five. All of these extremely vocal little groups with their oh so justified opinions about what is wrong with Supernatural and why the show isn’t as good as it used to be. Half of them stating week after week that they are giving up on the show because it’s not how they want it to be.

    Except Supernatural is still one of the most successful shows on The CW. Nine years in and the show is possibly the healthiest it’s ever been, generally speaking. So despite all these online uberfans with their supposedly correct opinions about this character or that character, the show continues to thrive.

    Why? Because most people don’t judge a show based around a single character or a plotline. Most enjoy the show in its entirety. The majority of people don’t come online and complain. They just turn on the television as watch the show they enjoy. That’s how the real, non-crazy-internet-fan world works.

    Always thought this too.

    @CrimTV

    If a show skews very young, then it’s possible a significant number of the non-A18-49 viewers are younger, not older; this is especially true for shows on FOX (which has been the #1 broadcast network with teens since 2000) and the CW and for things like holiday specials (e.g. Toy Story of Terror).

    In general, however, the vast majority of the viewers that fall outside of the A18-49 demo are older simply because the A50+ demo is much, much larger than the P2-17 demo and watches a lot more primetime TV.

  • Parker Wyeth

    @iHeartJoss What does “politically correct” have to do with character development?

  • Ioioswag

    TO!!

  • JR35

    Thanks for expanding on that thought, Ultima.

    As for 18-24- one thing to keep in mind is that a number of parents are still buying things for their kids at that age, too, including their gadgets and such. :) But, I hear what you’re saying.

    True, but just because they’re being supported by their parents instead of having their own income doesn’t necessarily mean that they aren’t in control of their purchasing decisions (especially for smaller ticket items like phones, maybe not so much for that first car).

    lol at POI. Below a 2 already. Remember when the fanboys thought this would dominate Grey’s Anatomy? lmao.

    It would’ve if it had stayed in its old timeslot. And you can’t prove otherwise.

    ;-) :-)

    @Thedelusionsarenow

    Um, doesn’t POI have a history of its ratings actually going *up* in the Spring?

    @fatso guidoinny

    If you don’t want to see people who are passionate about TV ratings, then don’t come here.

  • Theisssuesarenow

    I do like POI ,watch it every week! But it’s dying! Time slot plus shaw equaling big problems.

  • Theisssuesarenow

    Carla is right!!
