  • help me save ABC

    ABC had better move The Goldbergs to Wednesday night or they will never have a hit comedy again. It’s way more important to ABC than it is to The Goldbergs. I doubt ABC will survive unless it moves The Goldbergs to Wednesday night.

    Why doesn’t ABC realize how important it is to them to move The Goldbergs to Wednesday night? They’re acting like the fate of the network, if not The Walt Disney Corporation, doesn’t hinge on moving The Goldbergs to Wednesday night. When it does.

    Please note, I’m not a writer for The Goldbergs or anything. I’m just trying to save ABC by getting The Goldbergs moved to the timeslot behind Modern Family.

    Shield seems to be the lame duck of the season.

  • David Howell

    ABC scheduling does it again!

    CBS once again moving forwards by standing still.

  • HalCapone

    I thought without any competition, POI would have bounced back from its series low rating last week. I think I understand CBS logic in moving POI to 10pm to open up a slot to debut something new but making changes to established shows is not without risks, either. 10pm is a really tough hour for most everybody. Scandal and Blacklist are certainly exceptions but it is still not completely clear to me Blacklist can sustain its great ratings without The Voice. No one can convince me otherwise until Blacklist doesn’t follow The Voice for a few successive weeks. That being said, I think POI is safe unless it took a sudden nosedive into Hostages territory which doesn’t seem remotely possible.

    ABC has the stupidest people running the network than any other channel. They should have NBC / CW numbers because of it. They don’t deserve Scandal. The only smart thing they’ve done in years was renew Scandal.

    “I thought without any competition, POI would have bounced back from its series low…”

    The 10 pm time slot has plenty of competition on cable. “Sons of Anarchy” got a 2.4, a TBBT repeat got a 1.3, and TOSH.0 got a 1.0.

    Looks like not many people in the US or UK like Marvel’s AoS, but from my point of view, the show ain’t that boring as many people say. Is it because no superheros or well-known Marvel comic characters are featured in the show? By the looks of the constant rating and viewership drop, maybe it would indeed be canceled at the end of this season, I will enjoy it while I still can. As for NCIS:LA, I can see the show having at least 1 or 2 more season. Also,despite the 2.4 rating, it still ranks number 4 of the night, so I wouldn’t say it wasted the slot it currently in. I’m a Chinese Chinese by the way, so correct me if I say anything wrong

    Peeps enough of the being for Team CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, CW
    Just because a show fails on one network does not mean a show another network in the same time slow will be found to be a great product. Lets call a spade a spade , okay?

    NBC has /had some show that might be dead due to either script, casting, or time slot errors,
    The Michael J Fox Show (casting and script problems , DEAD)
    Sean Saves The World (script problems , DEAD)
    Iron Side (The show might have worked with different casting, DEAD)
    Revolution (WRONG TIME SLOT !, which is a shame because the show got better)
    Welcome to the Family (Huge Casting Errors !, DEAD)

    ABC like NBC made some huge mistakes,
    Goldbergs (SHIELD was not the right lead in, DEAD UNLESS MOVED)
    Trophy Wife (Hurt as was Goldbergs due to a SHIELD Lead In, DEAD UNLESS MOVED)
    Lucky 7 (Script errors, DEAD)
    Back In The Game (Script Issues, DEAD)
    Wonderland , and not the same Wonderland where the Scandal Spies are based, DEAD due to casting, concept errors, DEAD)
    Revenge (script / concept errors, DEAD)

    CBS has far less issues then the other networks but that should have been expected since they came in needing to replace a smaller percentage of their line up.
    We Are Men ( Was DOA due to casting, time slot, and scripts, it might have worked though after 2 1/2 MEN if the other issues had been both noticed and addressed, DEAD)
    Hostages (the network should have let the show have more action, skin, and edge , DEAD)

    As for the folk at FOX , well no idea to be honest because they seem to be able to make money even with crap ratings , BUT these are the shows I would axe
    DADS, (unless the show was better written I would kill this)
    X- Factor, (its everything that I hated about American Idol , Kill This Please)
    Glee, (Show is nothing more then an After School Special For Kids, NEEDS TO END)

    POI also had competition from the voice again this week. Combine that with the normal cable competition and its competition the last two weeks was stiffer. It will be weaker next week when CF returns.

    I like Trophy Wife, but I’m wondering now…

    ABC canceled HTLWYP, which as previously mentioned probably could have been viable (it got some Goldbergs/BITG/SFN ratings in the middle of repeats, but seeing as spring comedies get lower numbers and fall comedies usually don’t air 1. new shows in a night of all repeats or 2. half of their new shows surrounded by repeats, I still say that a normal-season low of 1.4 wasn’t *that* bad), and it’s been far more patient with TW.

    I don’t know about network thinking of course, but I wonder if any of these things might play a factor:
    1. ABC is almost unreasonably patient with its own comedies. (Hello shape-shifting aliens.)
    2. HTLWYP had bad press for the first five episodes shown to critics, which admittedly ranged from “bad” (pilot) to “OK but nothing special” (the other four) and though the writing improved starting with the sixth (retooled after the bad press?), critical reviews did not keep pace. TW has had excellent reviews out the gate. (Of course so did Ben and Kate, last season…)
    3. If advertisers don’t like being associated with poor people, could the fact that Sarah Chalke’s character was poor (even if her parents weren’t) affected ad revenues?

    Any one else feel like HTLWYP would have paired nicely with TW, if it had premiered a little earlier, and had managed to stabilize at acceptable numbers? (If they’d only aired six episodes regular-season and then moved it to Tuesday, I agree with those who say it would *probably* have done an Apt 23. Not certainly, but probably. One thing going for it would have been that episode seven was a *good* episode.)

    I also kind of wonder if Goldbergs is really a good lead-in for Trophy Wife, given that it’s a nostalgia show about the “good old days of the eighties,” whereas TW is about the blended families of today. (That said, while I don’t personally like the Goldbergs, the fact that it can self-start at almost Middle-level ratings means that it probably should be renewed.)

  • charmedcraft

    I’m still very happy for SPN, the ratings are really good.

  • RS

    Trophy Wife – blended families. Does anyone take notice of the fact that TW is an abomination to XX folks? Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the male character replace his age-appropriate, intelligent, professions (doctor) wife with a younger ditz. And then replace the ditz with a 20-something party girl. What part of attractive to women is this show going for?

  • Chris_SAdvisor

    AoS is on its way to 2.0 by mid-season. Not unlike Thor 2 which refers to AoS, neither seem to have much to work with until Avengers 2 comes out. Mostly boring, starting to develop plot holes and continuity errors, and they pay lip-service to developing the team while doing nothing of the sort. Joss needs to start schooling Jed a bit more.

  • Shelby

    Im hoping that with TW getting a back-9 they’ll head to Wednesday after MF mid season, with Suburgatory back in the 8:30 slot instead of 9:30. I’m forgetting, did Suburgatory get good ratings at 9:30 last season? They were on the certain to be renewed list all year, yet now they appear to be in a poor state with just 13 episodes in the season and having to get rid of two main characters (Noah Werner and then Rex Lee’s character, maybe Ryan Shay as well considering he’s on one of Fox’s mid season comedies now)

  • KimmelKanyeWest

    TW definitely needs to be moved. It’s odd that TW and the Goldbergs would be paired with AOS. It’s a completely different demo. Moreover, the retro 80s mediocre version of the Wonder Years repackaged and called the Goldbergs is getting old. I have no idea what ABC was thinking here.

    You might be able to salvage TW behind MF. If the ratings don’t improve, put the effort back into Suburgatory. Networks are way too enamored with the next “big” show that rarely turns out and they sacrifice what’s already on their schedule.

    @ HalCapone

    Thanks ! :)

  • Gaius Bolling

    I heard ABC didn’t like the creative direction of back in the game so i kinda respect them for not going through with it. I like Trophy Wife and i know people who like the goldbergs. I think they see something worth working with and trying to build on it. apparently both shows are big on social media and already have vocal fans. some comedies weren’t hits out the gate but when given time to grow they became hits. maybe will will happen with these two.

  • Jon

    @Michael1…..I always forget about sons of anarchy, a show that I have compete disinterest in, but I do understand why people like it. I’m sure a lot of PoI’s demo gets sucked up by that show. They probably share a similar audience, and its why POI gets so many viewers on the DVR. People are choosing to watch sons of anarchy live.

  • Jon

    Goldberg’s is hands down one of the funniest new shows to hit tv since Modern Family debuted 5 seasons ago
