    I love The Voice and it’s still doing okay. This cycle is almost over and they’re still not in the 2’s. Don’t forget that Idol had ratings in the 2’s on 7 different nights last season.

    Anyone who thought Thor would appear in AoS is pretty slow and should probably stick with CBS.



    I think not–CBS still won 3.0/2.5/2.0 to 1.9/3.2/1.9 (ie) CBS 2.5, NBC 2.35

  • Jenny

    I love The Goldbergs it’s better then Modern Family imo. Just wish it skewed younger like New Girl.

  • iSayso

    I agree they should gag The Voice and kill ALL the karaoke.

  • Doug

    @SJ – you’re assuming that AOS’s viewers watched ABC for the entire night. There was some inside-network ratings info released by ABC a season or two ago that revealed that only 46% of The Middle’s viewers also watched Modern Family, and that only about 50% of the entire audience watched the majority of the episodes of the show. For Lost, the number was something like 33% watching all episodes of the 6th season (I think). Audiences are very fluid.

    I actually don’t doubt that but I find it very interesting and mildly surprising that the numbers are that low. Do you have some article I could read? Out of curiosity only

  • omabin

    Person of Interest had one of the best episode of the entire TV season this year last night. I expect a bounce in ratings next week. I am still shocked with that ending.

  • HalCapone

    That’s still a Tuesday low for The Voice. I remember when the NCIS twins would regularly adjust up, too. I imagine these two adjustments should put ABC in a tie with CBS for the number one in the key demo. Too bad this site doesn’t post the updated network chart for those of us who like to follow individual show ratings AND the network overall ratings score card.

    Well, the Fox prez used to thump chest about The DVR and multiplatform views New Girl was getting. Still seems to gain substantial numbers in that regard. Guess they’re getting what they want? Be interesting to see if they stick with the lineup now that it’s clearly failing. (Mindy and Brooklyn 99 don’t get nearly the DVR bumps of New Girl anymore). Because it seems like trying to get viewers to watch the show live might be a solid idea. Bookending the night with the lowest rated shows this side of Friday is a problem. Put something on at 8pm that people will watch. Bones, Hells Kitchen, Masterchef, celebrity bingo, anything. Then put Brooklyn 99 after New Girl so it’s modest audience won’t be hemorrhaged away like it is now. After a while, maybe folks will remember to tune in to New Girl instead of just seeing it sitting in their DVR queue over the next few days, and Brooklyn 99s demo could improve at the same time.

    I’m curiousnhownNCIS LA will fair next week without NCIS as a lead in. Any predictions?

  • HalCapone

    “Anyone who thought Thor would appear in AoS is pretty slow and should probably stick with CBS.”

    Thank you, Anne. Other than name dropping, Iron Man, Thor and all of their Avenger buddies will NOT be making any appearances on Agents of SHIELD and probably never. What would be interesting if the television series developed some new super heroes but Marvel comic book purists would probably go apoplectic about that, too.

  • CBSviewer

    @ Steven

    I’m gonna say 2.4-2.5.
    NCIS: Los Angeles has its own fanbase now and, considering how last night episode ended, people probably want to know more about Kensi and Deeks relationship.

  • KH


    I think this will be the first time NCIS:LA will not have the NCIS lead in. I’m thinking there will be a noticeable drop. I’m going to predict season low in demo and viewers.

  • CBSviewer

    @ Steven and KH

    It’s probably a test to see if CBS can move NCIS: Los Angeles to another night next season.


    kh no it has happened before

  • forg

    Sucks that The Goldbergs didn’t rise.

  • HalCapone

    Since Rudolph has a big fan base ( which is amazing since it has been broadcast every year and is available on DVD ), it could easily match or even exceed NCIS’ more moderate ratings this year, so I don’t think this harm NCIS LA. Nothing screams American family values and Christmas yuletide like some good old fashioned serial killers, yellow crime scene tape and chalk mark outlines around victims bodies, following a story about Santa and his reindeer.

  • iHeartJoss

    @The Old Man

    No. I don’t watch that show. Doesn’t appeal to me. It’s nice to hear that she’s working though.

  • KH

    @CBS Viewer

    That’s what I was thinking. It’s kind of early for Rudolph. NCIS and NCISLA have always aired together. This is new and unusual. Test out how NCISLA does by itself to see if they can move it and anchor another night. The NCIS:New Orleans will get that 9 pm spot.

    I still believe it will hit season lows, but I guess we have to wait and see.
