    Every week the same stupid comments about the CW ratings and yet none of you have thought to go look at how their shows do historically or what the network reviews?

    They’ll never match the major networks and for all intents and purposes care only about the demo. TO is their second rated show when you factor in L+3 and is arguably in their worst time slot. It’s remained rock steady since its premiere and has a strong social media presence. Those are the sort of things that CW looks at.

    CBS probably worries more about Elementary’s 1.5 (two weeks ago) than POI’s 1.9.

  • Epidrone

    The problem with POI’s numbers vs a similar Elementary’s is that POI doesn’t have Scandal to compete against. I think CBS is more likely to bank on an eventual Scandal slide (would anything else compete?) and keep E in place, whereas POI might sooner be headed to the Friday syndication farm. Plus, E being on Thursday benefits from a higher potential C3.

    I came back to AOS after bailing due to the acting and writing, and I’m glad I did. The show is definitely improving.

  • Epidrone

    Plus, Elementary jumped up three tenths and stayed steady the following weeks. They’re clearly not great numbers, but I think CBS has shown itself to be patient with Elementary. I think they recognize the potential once it hits syndication.

    Nooo Trophy Wife!

  • Bored Now

    Does anyone even bother reading Theisssuesarenow’s comments anymore? Given the fact that he does nothing but repeat the exact same three sentences regarding Person of Interest in every thread possible. All totally deluded, mind you. What’s with his obsession with the Vegas comparison?

    Regarding Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D., I’m not in the television business but I am in the comic book business and I have been for long enough to have made some friends at Marvel. Whilst no one will deny they would rather it be the massive mega hit that was predicted, right now nobody there is complaining about the fact that the show is only getting the numbers that it is. AoS was conceived as much more than just a standalone movie spinoff concept and as such its ratings, so long as they stay in the realm of ‘solid success’, will be almost irrelevant, because it isn’t there to draw in advertising money alone. Marvel have made a fortune for Disney when it comes to international sales of the series, along with related merchandise and comic fare, and as we all know, ABC is also owned by Disney.

    At the end of the day, AoS is going to have to absolutely tank in the ratings for them to play any serious role in a renewal decision. I know TVBTN doesn’t allow behind the scenes rumours to cloud their methodology (nor should they, this being a ratings site) but in this particular case there are much larger plans afoot for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and AoS is very much at the centre of them. Short of a ratings disaster (which a 2.5 in no way is) the show has a long future.

    Really… NCISLA is wasting its spot. It’s still gets more viewers than every show besides the original. Sure it loses some of the demo but what show do you think would be more compatible with NCIS and not loose more than LA?
    Now I am curious how LA would do without NCIS as a lead but why would CBS change what is so obviously working for them.

  • Aiden_Mathis

    Trophy Wife = DEAD! There’s no excuse for this rating. Say what you say. It’s dead. Even SUPER FUN NIGHT has more chances at this point.

  • Lukel

    NBC is hurting The Voice by extending it past 10:00. They also shouldn’t do the Thursday episode…that won’t turn out well.

  • Michael

    RIP ABC COMEDY…Trophy Wife, The Goldbergs…Gone!!
    FOX has a lot of comedy problems as well. Mindy Project is a FAIL.

  • Toldyasooooo

    Hey TW apologists…


    Oh wait let me say something constructive.


  • Tony JJ

    Yes! Exactly my point. POI is doing fine. Yes well below what it got on Thursdays but still good. Heck TBBT dropped when it first moved to thursdays now look at it.

    (And for the record I don’t watch POI but I’m not hoping and praying for it to fail like many of these posters now a days)

    Ah I remember a simpler time here at TVbythenumbers where people could talk about ratings and give their opinion without being annoying and spam. I rarely comment now a days because 75% of the comments of jiberish.

  • Michael1

    I’m guessing that Julie Andrews will come in to play Pete’s mother on “Trophy Wife” a la Martin Sheen in “Anger Management”. Andrews is the real life mother-in-law of the show’s creator. Short of that, I don’t see the ratings ever getting back to 2.0, even if it is to air after “Modern Family”.

  • CBSviewer

    @ Tony JJ

    100% agreed. TV by the numbers is now TV by the Trolls ;)

  • Justin121

    CW actually seemed competitive with 2 of their shows at +0.8 and four others at +1.0.

    However, that didn’t last…

    NCIS: LA is definitely wasting the slot.

    It’d do as well as any other 10 pm drama if moved (to a 10 pm slot), while freeing the slot for a new drama that’d pull mid-high 2s (a huge win).

  • HalCapone

    “TV by the Trolls” is inspirational. You just made my day.

  • Justin121

    “Why would CBS change what is so obviously working for them.”

    Because they need new hits?

    NCIS/CSI/Criminal Minds: old.

    Mentalist/Elemantry/Person of Interest/Hawaii/Blue Bloods: not hits.

  • Biliam


    I agree… If Originals was at a 0.6, I’d worry but 0.9 and staying there is great for a freshman show on CW.

    I’m more worried about Reign and The Tomorrow People than I am about The Originals…

    ABC screwed up with OUAT, Revenge, Suburgatory, Malibu Country, Apt. 23 and HTLWYP. Suburgatory was doing very good between The Middle and MF but ABC wanted to move it to 9:30 even though it’s much better suited as an 8:30 pm show. And now look at it, it’s now a midseason replacement and the next Happy Endings. OUAT and Revenge were doing good last year until ABC screwed with the scheduling by putting them against award shows and big football games and now look at them, OUAT is in the low 2’s while Revenge is hovering in the high 1’s. Malibu Country wasn’t doing THAT good but it was doing good for Friday and was compatible with LMS. It could’ve been a good Friday hit. Apt. 23 was a VERY funny show but like somebody said ABC screwed with it and put it at midseason so it can mostly have repeats of MF as a lead in. And then they thought Apt. 23 had an audience after only seven episodes that it could go to a new night with a much weaker lead in and now where is it. It’s cancelled and long gone. And HTLWYP could’ve been a good hit but ABC was impatient and didn’t let it grow. This is all the stuff that ABC did the past years that was stupid.
