    Truly pathetic night for ABC w/ a 1.0 avrg, still good for The Sing Off, though.

  • AH FAN!

    What sucks is that AH doesn’t come back until next year…in 3 weeks.

    And I only started watching Sleepy Hollow last week when John Noble was on, but I like it and can’t wait for it to come back, whenever that will be.

    @AH fan
    Everything sucks, lol! You suck, too! :)

  • AH FAN!

    The thing that i only kinda don’t like about AH, is that they are cops in an unknown city (at least not yet). Although knowing/not knowing what city they are supposedly in doesn’t make any difference to me, they could at least create a fictional city like “Gotham” or something.

    I would much rather want the cops be Federal Agents rather than local city cops, but it works.

    The Feds would be better though.

  • Mike

    @ AH Fan. So people will bconfused and stop watching. Can we say Firefly and Space above and beyond. This ishow fox kills their good scifi shows.

    The Sing Off should find a sponsor and operate on a bigger budget. The show has a lot of potential and the singing is great BUT it looks so cheap and too rushed.

  • AH FAN!

    I don’t know what those shows are/were, but the FOX executives that make these kinds of dumb decisions to air out of order, must have some sort of business minded decision behind it, and not an artistic point of view.

    TV is art. And art needs to be represented in the way that it was made. Not by the pockets of the art-dead FOX executives.

  • AH FAN!

    To reply to my own post: Or maybe in season 2 (or higher) they get promoted to the FBI and then we can see how the Feds handle the tech. ‘Cuz if city cops have drones and androids, just imagine what kind of tech the Feds have.

  • NBC Fan

    Disappointing for The Voice. Maybe the drop had something to do with how this was the first finale without members of Team Blake.

    My prediction for the finale-
    14.70 million 4.0

    I don’t want to get it the middle nor do I want to slam others for not like their show, but Bones Sucks. I tried it in season one and didn’t make it passed ep. 1. Bones is chicks. AH is for men. You know, the hard demo to get. The demo that advertisers want. Bones Sucks. AH is Awesome

    I watch both, but Bones was truly a stalwart performer recently for FOX on Mondays.

    And I’m so glad you didn’t slam anyone! ;-) :-)

    @AH FAN!
    The main reason Fox aired the episodes out of order is so they’d have a better episode to pair with the pilot that would keep people interested in watching.

    While they continued to do so after that puzzles me. They aired the episodes of Terra Nova, Firefly, Alcatraz, The Finder, and Touch out of order and look what that got them. Four 1st season cancellations and a 2nd season ratings disaster.

    Terra Nova and Alcatraz got pretty confusing and from what I heard, Firefly was pretty serialized too.

    However, Almost Human is not very serialized. Almost Human is basically a police procedural with a nice twist, so viewing the episodes out of order won’t cause too much confusion. Still, if it wouldn’t have mattered, then Fox should’ve aired the episodes in the correct order.

  • AH FAN!

    haha yeah it’s just not my kind of show. I think there was a wedding ep recently. meh, more action and less weddings is what I want to see :)

    AH satisfies my action/sci fi appetite. Fringe did the whole character love interest in just the right amounts in a great action/sci fi show.

    But to each their own :)

  • HeadlessHorseman

    @AH FAN!
    You do realize what you just said basically boils down to this:

    “I don’t want to insult anyone or anyone’s show. Bones sucks and AH is awesome. The end.”

    And the demo that advertisers want is the 18-49 demo. Men 18-49 and Women 18-49 are pretty much the same thing to the Big 4. A show that pulls a 2.0 with mostly female viewers will make as much money as a show that pulls a 2.0 with mostly male viewers.

  • AH FAN!

    yeah i didn’t mean it that way, but when i saw my quote in a reply i realized how it could come across. How i meant to say it, is above your post.

  • AH FAN!

    And i can’t find what i am looking for at the moment, but I seem to recall reading that advertisers what the 18-49 demo, but more specifically young males. because young males are harder to target. And the harder the target is, the evermore the advertisers want to reach.

    So, i don’t mind being corrected, but that is what i thought. young males are the goldmine target.

    @ Luka…..1.6 is not good news for almost human in is continuing its downward trend. Although the show is better than I expected ive quit watching it. I just don’t see it making it to season 2.

  • Jon

    @ah fan…..Ive watched bones for years and have never once considered it a chicks show. In fact in all the years ive watched it ive only had one girl I ever dated that would watch it with me. Most couldn’t get past what they called the ick factor of the bones and human goo. The one that did was a scientist so it made sense. She loved all the science speak.

    MNF was huge so this doesn’t surprise me at all.

  • BD

    Love the Sing Off but I feel like NBC is just throwing it into their schedule wherever they have a hole. They need to give it a normal run

  • reidjr


    Its doing well because of the short schedule.
