    Well, I guess nice adjustment for SHIELD? Despite falling almost 4 million viewers from last week… Hopefully it can rebound in January with more promotion and reworking. Last night was its best episode yet.

    Huge viewership adjustment for NCIS.

  • Michael

    Still kinda bad for SHIELD, but at least it is an improvement.

  • David

    Absolutely brilliant for NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles and The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

  • Simon

    HA! Knew it would Adjust Up, like usual!

  • Shepherd

    See now, why all the doom and gloom? AoS only dropped 1/2 a ratings point!

  • John A

    Why do CW air those stupid Iheartradio rubbish? The Originals and Spn repeats would repeat at least 0.4.

  • Chris

    SHIELD is still at a series-low.

    It’s falling below 2.0 before this season is done.

    The only question is how far.

    Working in the comic book biz, specifically in the Marvel arena, means Wednesdays are usually when the S.H.I.E.L.D. buzz is at its peak and today has been no different. Unfortunately one thing I’ve heard a lot of is that many people didn’t think that there was a new episode last night, due to last week’s badly timed break. Many of these people I know are serious fans of the show and so I’m not surprised at all to see the drop in numbers. I can only imagine that many less dedicated viewers believed it was done for the Christmas hiatus already. Piss poor scheduling there, ABC. Surpassed only by CBS’s ludicrous Person of Interest December plan.

  • Derek

    @Bored Now – What exactly is CBS’ POI plan? I don’t believe I’ve heard of it.

  • Dochas

    @JohnA – ITA. These shows do nothing for the network. It feels like they HAVE to air them for some asinine reason. I can’t help but roll my eyes when I come here for the night’s listings and see iHeart anywhere near the CW lineup.

    @Bored Now

    I would imagine to be a Nielsen viewer(aka one of the chosen few who are tracked and reported on ratings websites) you need to know enough to be able to tell when your fav tv show is on. Which is why I don’t buy the ‘Many people didn’t think it was a new episode excuse’. I think the more realistic reason is that people are slowly but surely losing interest in the show.

  • Me

    Those iHeart crap specials mean nothing to The CW, because they actually earn a lot of money from the broadcast rights. It doesn’t matter if the special pulls a 0.1 rtg.

    The show one new episode in December schedule the show has. But I think they likely planned on 2 in December but thought for dramatic effect Episode 8,9,10 had to viewed as normal. Episode 11 airing December 17 just seems so out of place lol. In my opinion they would be better off not bothering airing any new POI eps this month and just airing them as normal from Jan 7 2014.

  • CKO

    The CW signed a 3 year deal with Clear Channel for the iHeartRadio shows earlier this year, so they’re not going anywhere anytime soon.

    @JohnA – both iHeart specials last night were repeats.

    However, I think Clear Channel either pays CW to air these specials or gives them to the CW for free. The events are typically Clear Channel promotions – tickets are only available to contest winners. iHeart gets network quality content for their website and an exclusive concert to lure their listeners to text to win (and mine their cell phone numbers in the process.)

    They could always terminate the contract if they don’t view as value for money. It could work out that if they have to pay up to end it, they could just take the loss if it works out less than it would be long term keeping it on the network.
