    Good performance. Bad performance. So-So performance. It’s all a moot point, Sleepy Hollow has been renewed, it’s coming back for season 2, it’s one of Fox’s better rated shows … for people that don’t like it I suggest you avoid these posts if gnaws away at your very soul that the show you hate is doing well enough that it’s coming back for season 2 … but then it may just eat away at you day in and day out, week in and week out, month in and month out, consuming your entire waking thoughts, filling you with contempt and bile, causing ulcers and heartburn and high blood pressure just knowing it’s coming back for season 2! :-) It’d say have a good day but I know you can’t have a good day knowing it’s coming back for season 2.


    PS: :-) It’s coming back for season 2! :-)

    First time “Hostages” didn’t come in 3rd. LOL. Merry Christmas CBS.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Go Sleepy Hollow! Top scripted show of the night on all of television! :-) ;-)

  • Ryan

    funny that one direction is one of the biggest music group and in the same time slot as BATB and Look at there Ratings. Lower than BATB. CW Monday nights Slots Sucks no matter what’s on blame the network

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    First time “Hostages” didn’t come in 3rd.

    I smell a CBS press release coming!!

    those iHeartRadio things always do bad. No promotion and nobody ever knows they’re on. No matter who is on it it does terrible numbers, but they must be dirt cheap for the CW to air.


    See Castle got knocked down a bit, too.

  • Scott

    Really fantastic number for The Voice. Shortening from 2 hours to 1 helped.

    Finale next Tuesday highest rated yet? I think so.

  • Ronak

    lol at a Castle repeat doing almost as well as an original ep for Hostages.

  • Katiebug

    I always wish people would wait until the ‘final’ ratings are released before bashing shows.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    Yes, while we would’ve liked a 2.5 and 7 million viewers, you can’t argue that a 2.2 is a bad rating. And Bones skews older than SH. Even on a Friday, it makes sense that some of Bones’ older viewers would follow it.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    @Fake Me Out and @grey
    I needed a good laugh. Thank you for that. :)

  • Networkman

    Almost Human did pretty well for FOX, considering that this show has to lead off a night in its first season. Almost Human also has to face The Voice and it goes up against Monday Night Football. FOX should be very patient with this show. It has potential and could eventually garner over 2.0 If it got these numbers on Friday night after a new episode of Bones, FOX would be really pleased. It would be a great improvement over the .8 that Raising Hope achieves.

    Oh, you know it! LOL! :D

  • Networkman

    Mike & Molly did good being surrounded by a sea of repeats. Melissa McCarthy was hilarious. She is still my frontrunner for the Emmy.

    I do think FOX can breathe a sign of relief. I feel if Bones was still airing on Monday opposite The Voice, it would be garnering identical numbers as what Almost Human pulled. So in my opinion, the network took care of two timeslots at the same time. Monday @8pm hovering around what it what normally do with Bones. And a big improvement for the Friday @8pm timeslot.

    Does anyone know how The Following compares to Sleepy Hollow in the demo episode by episode? I tried looking the other day and could only go so far back for The Following.

  • Networkman

    Wasn’t the One Direction iHeartRadio Album Release Party a repeat airing? I really thought it was shown maybe about two weeks ago before the album came out. Tonight the CW is repeat the Katy Perry and Lady Gage release parties. I expect a .2 tonight as well for both. Is Britney Spears getting an iHeartRadio Album Release?

  • Percysowner

    @rob60990 Sleepy Hollow still tied a series low against weaker competition. Are we really going to cheer such a poor performance?


  • Coffee Steve

    Love Sleepy Hollow, and hopeful for Almost Human, the story hopefully will improve.
