    Go Arrow!

  • Scandalicious

    Yay for Arrow and Modern Family! I am happy about Survivor and The Middle as well. I think that Nashville’s chances of renewal are looking better and better the closer it gets to Super Fun Night which happens to air out of Modern Family! There really is not much of a difference between a 1.6 and a 1.8 and Nashville doesn’t have a strong lead in.

  • Bee

    ahhh NASHVILLE! i know it’s only a 1.6 but this show is FIGHTING to stay alive. it’s so steady and has to suffer a low-rated, dying, and incompatible lead-in. it would be a shame if it got cancelled.

    and DAMN IT ABC! STOP interfering with the show’s content!! it’s been known since last season that the writers/producers of the show want to make a more realistic country music drama and ABC just wants another damn soap. there needs to be more music and less bed-hopping. it’s not like the bed-hopping has helped ratings. let them sing great songs + tell dramatic stories about the music industry. the show is so great and can be so special, but there is literally no reason for some of the glaringly soapy subplots like the whole peggy nonsense and the rayna’s dad subplot.

  • TBM

    The programmers at ABC are ruining their Wednesday comedy block with these awful sitcoms following The Middle and Modern Family. They deserve the ratings they’re getting.

  • Bee

    and this MF drop is SO weird. hopefully the ep in 2 weeks does better.

    but LMAO at the people calling it dead and going “MF sucks now.” next week, if it rises to 4.0, all the comments will be “yeah MF! amazing season!” lol

  • Seth

    Outstanding for X-Factor. It’s the little show that could defying all the odds!

  • Janus

    Not awful for Revolution at all–very solid for NBC and compared to non-Voice inflated shows…not bad at all.

  • Jagger Dagger

    I remember when The Middle was in it’s first year it was on the cancellation bubble.
    Glad ABC stuck with it. It’s viewer base and numbers are as steady now as anything else out there right now.

  • Psac

    A lot of Arrow fans here… and I’m one of them. Glad to see we’ll get another year for sure. (And then the obligatory 4th year at least.)

  • M

    X Factor is far from being the “little show” defying the odds.

  • The Cool Max

    Middle is fantastic, I just don’t see why it can’t have any awards buzz.

  • Last Words

    Modern Family is clearly not as funny as it once was (a trip through the syndicated episodes makes that sad truth very clear) but the show is beyond safe and is going absolutely nowhere. Anyone who claims ‘beginning of the end’ is only right if that end is 3-4 seasons down the road and due to the fact that the cast is bored.

  • Sam

    Don’t know how TTP managed to adjust up in viewers since last night’s episode was terrible. They need to focus less on the stupid triangle which let’s be honest nobody wants or is interested, cut back on the High School stuff and keep the main A storyline focus on The Tomorrow People/Ultra stuff. Oh and keep Julie Plec as far away from the writers room as possible.

  • Scott

    X Factor is still lower than last week in total ratings. Down about 200,000 but the same 1.7

    X Factor is NOT the little show that could, where Cowell expected 20 million viewers. It’s had mass promotion. Not a “little show”


    YES Arrow adjusted up thank god.

  • ms13

    Is there any site to see some tv-ratings from the previous season?

  • Samunto

    Me thinks that Chicago Fire will be moving back to it’s old slot either mid-season or next season. Not gaining so much from The Voice as hoped.

    I see CRISIS launching Tuesdays at 10. I know this is Wednesday’s thread but oh well….


    @ M,

    I think Seth was being sarcastic. We all know how much of a , excuse me for lack of a better word, FLOP X Factor has turned out to be. I fully expect it to be cancelled and Cowell to return to the UK version to salvage some of his “legacy” considering both sides of the pond has seen dramatic loss in ratings.

  • David

    Good for The Middle. I’ll continue to cheer on this show for as long as it’s on the air because it really is brilliant. Good for Modern Family as well, anyone who thinks it’s going anywhere anytime soon is stupid. Pathetic for Back in the Game, Super Fun Night and Nashville though.

    Decent for Arrow, though Tomorrow People continues to underwhelm.

    The X Factor is done. Next year it will drop even more if it’s renewed.

    Nice for Survivor, Criminal Minds and CSI. CSI needs to stay over 2.0 more often.

    Revolution looks OK. I’m honestly not sure what NBC will do with the show by May, it truly is a bubble show. Law and Order: SVU doing well.

    Back in the Game’s cancellation was one of very few things ABC has done right. While Suburgatory should be able to improve on those ratings, ABC should have put The Goldbergs there for now. SHIELD is obviously not helping it since it rose when SHIELD was a rerun. SFN getting more episodes gets more and more laughable.

    Criminal Minds has rebounded nicely after a few below average weeks.

    Despite poor ratings, I think The X Factor will return next year but only airing once a week. It should be cancelled but I can’t see how FOX can fill all those holes at once.

    TTP still wasting its lead-in. It would probably do B&TB type ratings on its own.
