    If the casts are willing the following shows are far from looking at their last seasons ,,
    The Crazy Ones
    The Millers
    2 /1 Men
    All will end the year and I would expect get an order for next year

    X Factor , I do not know enough about how valuable their part of the demo might be

    Sean Saves The World , This will not come back for another season but could last until the spring

  • Fake Me Out

    Is it safe to assume NBC will shortly be issuing an amended press release that was touting SStW & MJFS highs?

    ‘Sean Saves the World’ Hits Series High …

    PS: it would be nice to have active links back, I know they won’t be but at least on site interlinks would help

  • Truth


    How about reading the whole thread before making asinine comments?

  • Frito Bandidto

    TVD fans are the worst

  • Lane


    Don’t worry, I read the whole thread. And now I’m done feeding the troll.

  • Truth


    I doubt you’re done, otherwise you’d starve.

  • David

    Obviously, NBC is trying to kill the Voice.

  • Charmed

    Sean Saves The World CANCELLED

    aka 5 more episodes ordered

    Dear ABC,

    It appears as though an impromptu scheduling of a results show can vastly improve upon a struggling comedy line-up. Please bring back the “Dancing with the Stars” results show on Tuesday Night at 9 pm. Your ratings will appreciate it.

    Let me try and explain it to you. You are trying to prove you are one of the SPN fans who just wants to celebrate when your show does well. You stop being one of those when you come in here and quote any comment that you think even MAY have a bad thought about SPN. Then you become someone who wants a fight. You are no longer someone who just wants to celebrate. You are now just as bad as the people you are complaining about. Quit pretending you aren’t.

    As I said before, it’s great to celebrate your show. It becomes not so great when you root for another CW show to fail. The CW is not a thriving network. I think it’s awesome whenever ANY CW show does well because I would like the network to stick around. TVD and SPN are the only shows that are doing well that have been around awhile. If CW crumbles and we have ZERO CW shows to root for, you guys can all pat yourselves on the back for all these pointless rivalries.

    Good luck with your fights Truth.


    i hope scandal goes down in ratings and also hell or whatever is below victoria!!!!

  • Andy

    @ john your inferior!!!

  • Truth


    That’s adorable. Do you intend to chastise everyone on here that steps on your self-righteousness, or are you just picking and choosing whatever suits your ego?

  • Bitter Go On Fan (Former Bitter Ringer Fan)

    I think both SPN and TVD are great shows but the way SPN fans celebrate the “few” occasions they win for the week is really annoying.

    Anyway it’s good for theCW to have 2 shows that almost all the time hit 1’s and other 2 that constantly hit 1’s

  • Robin

    Why are people fighting over TVD and SPN. That’s just as stupid as the revenge vs scandal fight

  • Frito Bandidto

    hey bitter fan sounds like go on and ringer aren’t the only things you’re bitter about

  • Avery

    @Toni: no, it wasnt

  • Nikki

    sad for Parenthood.. they should of just left it on Tuesdays at 10.. it had its best season last year. And this is just mean, a good performing show gets treated like crap. I mean i had a feeling this would be the final season but jeeze.. it deserves better. Awesome show.

    @truth…please get your mommie to find a more age appropriate site for you to be on…

    Well, at least everyone now knows the NBC comedy lineup is NOT Voice dependent–Sean and Michael are not going to save NBC. I’m not even sure The Voice is Voice dependent since a lot of its fan base didn’t follow it to Thursday. The least deserving NBC victim of their ratings challenged Thursday is Parenthood.

    CBS is wobbling on Thursday. Other than Bang, it’s comedy shows are marginal performers at best. Not sure CBS can ever find a lead out show that retains a bigger chunk of Bang’s viewers. Disagree that Crazy would do better than The Millers; I actually think it would do worse and not just because of the Robin Williams annoyance factor. Both The Millers and Crazy Ones could conceivably be back for a second season but if that happens, it would illustrate just how creatively bankrupt and desperate CBS and the other networks have become to find that elusive breakout comedy hit. Barring some miracle or NBC-like desperation, I can’t imagine Millers or Crazy returning beyond a season two. Ditto for Mom. If CBS does indeed go ahead with the How I Met Your Father spin-off, it will be official that comedy is dead.

    Can’t say anything that hasn’t been said about Ex-Factor, already. Can we get a live feed of Simon Cowell’s panties when he is told the show is being canceled.
