    Nope, it doesn’t look like it’s working.

    Hey there about Live+7 , it is already being monetized but its contract specific with certain advertisers , it comes down to the how the ads are being sold ,

    @Jon – TTP jumped the shark in the first episode (more use of powers, excellent pace, excellent story to action ratio). Since then it has just meandered with brief glimpses of what it was in that first episode. I watched up until this week’s episode and then gave up on it. The largest issue is that fact that they do not use their powers unless convenient for the story. If you can teleport, a girl choking you through a fence means nothing. You just teleport out of the hold, as they did earlier in the match. But for some reason, that did not happen. Also, now that Cara has shown that she did not lose her powers by teleporting into the club and back out (under surveillance), Stephen should be forced into hiding from Ultra too. Of course that does not happen (based on the writeup for the next episode).

    It was a great premise, and I can see why the CW thought it had potential. Too bad they put their A-game into episode one only. Translating a BBC children’s show (1973) and it’s remake (American/UK 1992) into an modern adult show was a gamble.

    @Cindy (if you are reading this) – I failed to take into account how high the (apparent – as I can find no data) budget is on TTP. After sending you the last comment, I had some time to watch this week’s episode and realized how much money CW it throwing at this. I am adjusting my prediction slightly. If this drops below 0.6 it may just have it’s budget reduced to normal CW levels. I still think it will not be cancelled unless it crosses the mid-point of 0.5 though. Not unlike NBC & Revolution, I think the CW is overly attached to this given their ordering of new scripts a few weeks ago when the curve was pretty steep. With TTP adjusting down by 40K viewers this week, we are going to see how committed the CW is.

    Revolution being flat (only adjusting down by 10K viewers) was a surprise. I really though it would have dropped to 1.3. Perhaps it has found a solid bottom after all. If Kripke pulls his head out and let O’Bannon actually do some (actually all) of the writing, perhaps the show could regain some of the lost viewers. If O’Bannon was made co- showrunner and Kripke spent considerably more time on plot development, the show could actually stage a full-blown comeback (2.5+).

    Revolution Season 2 is following the sam tradjectory as Jericho Season 2 if anyone recalls what happened with Jericho several years ago. Of course with Revolution it wasnt cancelled then brought back but the plotting is very very similar. Of course its NBC so this turn of events should not be a suprise at all after in the season 1 finale when they revealed the remnants of the US government was hiding out at Gitmo – I was quite sure where Season 2 was headed, with its thinly veiled political allegory of the Bush administration and conservatives in general, and I figured it would alienate a large percentage of the audience attracted to the look and feel of Season 1. After the mid season break I wouldnt be suprised to see it pull under 1.0 in the 18-49 demo for some episodes with probably cancellation.

    @Joseph A – Live + Same Day ratings turn out to be very nearly the same as the C+3 ratings. Since no one makes money based on L’s, only the C’s, and since C’s are not often shown to the public, we talk about the L scores. You are correct that contracts may be out there which take L+3 into account at a greatly reduced rate ($0.60 if I remember correctly), but it would take something like NCIS or LOST to get L+7 money. CBS made it sound like they are getting this in their 2013 Nov. conference call, but is was a statement about on-going negotiations, not in-place contracts. So basically it is just spin until they actually get an advertiser to cough up the money, and then the entire landscape of television advertising will change (and L could become C).

    A word of caution, the L and C measure different numbers, so there is not guarantee that L+SD will equal C+3 on any individual basis. It is just an acceptable metric that is highly correlated with the actual result that we are interested in tracking (the money of course). ;)

    @Other Than THAT Mrs Lincoln? How Was The Play? – Yes the Jericho ‘borrowing’ has been noticed all the way down to the electricity being knocked out.

  • Other Than THAT Mrs Lincoln? How Was The Play?

    Its slightly possible Revolution might get a short season 3 on Frdays but its unlikely to hold 1.4 thru the end of the season. If it does, I will be suprised.

    I just found out the last episode was called “Patriot Act” and that was the reason for the pointless waterboarding scene that added nothing to the episode and was there for purely gratuitous political reasons. Things like that will only drive more viewers away. NBC – gotta love those progressives. I wonder if hosts of MSNBC have begun ghost writing the episodes this season? Id guess either Ed Schultz or Chris Matthews. They make the unseen President look like George W Bush or Cheney and go all in.

    Too bad for The Tomorrow People. It’s actually quite a good show with a lot of promise. One of only 2 CW shows I watch (the other being SPN).

    @Dan S, I agree that it is time to put Criminal Minds in the 10pm slot next season. I don’t feel it is as strong any more to anchor the night and help any new drama that follows. I feel it constantly garnering 2.0-2.2 would be adequate for 10pm. The network has to continue to have a higher expectation for its 9pm hour than what these aging dramas are capable of giving. It will also be time to move NCIS:LA away from NCIS.

    Hopefully Intelligence hits so that it can remain on Monday @10pm in the Fall.

    8pm NCIS
    9pm New Drama
    10pm Person of Interest

    8pm NCIS:LA
    9pm New Drama
    10pm Criminal Minds

    10pm New Drama

    8pm Hawaii Five-0
    9pm CSI (Final Season)
    10pm Blue Bloods

    7pm 60 Minutes
    8pm Survivor/The Amazing Race
    9pm Elementary
    10pm The Good Wife

    Undercover Boss can simply step in as a needed replacement.
