    @Networkman You do realize that Rebel Wilson is the creator of Super Fun Night, right? And she’s writing most of the episodes… so don’t feel embarrassed for her. She’s the one who apparently wants to be laughed at.

    Now, I do agree that the show is horrible, but I don’t think that another vehicle is a good idea. Rebel Wilson is just too cartoonish to be a lead character. She’s never played anyone that is a believable character and until she shows otherwise, I’m going to guess that she doesn’t know how to play one. You’re right. She should stick with guest spots.

    @Percysowner: Of course TTP has a lead-in – the 7 pm ET local programming of the affiliates :p

    The MF rerun tied The Middle?? I think they should replace SFN with MF reruns. Adding reruns to the fall schedule is actually a pretty good idea, I don’t understand why it isn’t done more. A 2.2 is solid and beats most of what they have going on.

    In a couple of years the 18-49 deomo won’t matter. There are only a handful of shows that get above a 3.0 demo. More than half of the shows on TV get below a 2.0. That’s why the 25-54 demo is more important.

    The 18-49 demo is so important now precisely because they are so hard to reach. If the live viewing numbers continue to go down that will only make it more important not less.

    Networks will continue to chase the demo because it will continue to be important to advertisers. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t try to adapt to the changing entertainment landscape. For example, Nielsen just announced that they will start tracking viewers who watch via streaming video (with several caveats of course – don’t get to excited). Why do they care? Because more young people (18-49 demo) watch on mobile platforms.

    was hoping for that arrow adjustment. as far as tomorrow people goes, i don’t think there will be a problem w a season order, i’m just starting to worry about it getting picked up for next year.

    @Crest – Doesn’t matter what the expectations were, Arrow will be renewed because even if it only holds at a 0.8 (it won’t) it’s still one of the highest rated on CW. And a 3rd season will guarantee a 4th.

    Sorry about that.

    Did anyone else notice that Nielsen adjusted the total viewers for Game 6 of the World Series to, specifically, 19.18 million people? Is Nielsen sending a message about the last time the Red Sox won the World Series at home…?

    LOL Nice catch! What a funny coincidence.

  • Duarte

    Yeah, Arrow adjusted up.

    Rebel Wilson annoys me. I am not surprised that Super Fun Night isn’t doing better.

    Revolution not only adjusted down (initially posted 4.91M – amount not overly significant, but direction is), but I had not noticed this: “8-901PM”. Sneaky NBC, very sneaky. If this were not up during the game I would have been interested in the real number. Since it was, the depressed value is of less importance (this week’s rating is a write-off for anything up against the game). The next rating of Rev. will be the one to watch unless they are bleeding over into other time slots again, at which point even maintaining an artificial 1.4 will not save it.

    To reiterate – I still maintain that a posting less than 5M viewers with only a 1.4 share is going to lead to cancellation – but since this week was vs. unique competition, it will take one more week to get valid numbers (and three weeks after that for NBC to pull the plug – at the mid-season mark).

    I though Arrow might actually adjust a bit higher, but still doing well. TP was another silly episode where the writers cannot wrap their heads around the powers that they only use when convenient. The multi-bomb scene was shockingly vapid given the protagonist’s power to stop time, even with his restriction on being very stressed. The bombs easily qualified. I knew they jumped the shark in episode one, but watched until now hoping I was wrong. Plus reiterating the premise that there is a gene for killing is just too nonsensical. Too bad, the cast is pretty good for a CW show. Oh well, I gave it a shot.

    I just saw Revolution, great episode, but everything with Monroe is great.
    Tom has a interesting story again, it was a little bit boring.

    I hope it will grow with 0.1 or 0.2 next week, this season is so much better as the first one.

    Bring back super fun night. I love that show
