Tonight at 9PM, CBS debuts its new drama Intelligence, a show that dares to ask the question, "What if Chuck had starred Sawyer from Lost?" Actually, they are tonally very different series, with Josh Holloway playing an investigator who has the internet implanted in his brain. CBS obviously hopes that a lot of NCIS viewers will sample the show then follow it to its regular Monday at 10PM timeslot next week. Does Holloway have what it takes to make a somewhat familiar premise a hit? Predict the ratings for the premiere than discuss your reasoning in the comments.

    I fee llike it will end up like hostages maybe a 1.7 premiere

  • Victor Hugo

    Will do fine 3.0 rating

  • Babar

    Mid 2’s most likely.

    No rating prediction here, just dissapointment that this is not a remake of the awesome Canadian series about organized drug trafficing of the same name.

    Seeing it is after NCIS, I expect a very respectable rating 2.7 or above.

    Let’s remind everyone that NCIS only gets around a 3.0. No way it does better than NCIS, so anyone guessing higher than a 3.0 is insane.


    I’m going with a 2.5-2.6 though I must say I really don’t like what I’ve seen so far. $6M Man anyone? (for those of us old enough to remember such a show).

    I am also looking at the premiere of “Killer Women”. I was under the impression it would be on after Revenge or is Tuesday? Does anyone know? Hope Sofia Vergara’s show does well, will she also guest star?

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    I’m guessing a 2.5, or just about where a regular NCIS:LA would be.

  • omabin

    I am rooting for this show so much. My guess today is a 2.5-2.6 which will be just fine. However, unless it either bombs or that it does so well up to the point of nearly tying or beating NCIS, I think the most relevant results will be the ones it will get on Monday. I continue to think that this should be the schedule though, LA is strong enough to fix the horrible Monday slot for CBS.

  • Janet

    It looks dumb enough for the CBS audience to embrace. I think it will do well.

    @a p garcia

    Killer Women premieres tonight at 10pm. It follows Trophy Wife, which has been struggling, with such a weak lead in I don’t expect it to do particularly well. The show also lacks star power – I love Tricia Helfer, but she’s not exactly a household name – and I don’t think Sofia will be guest starring at any point.


    @ ap garcia

    “Killer Women” is 10:00 Tues thru 3/11, when “Mind Games” takes over

    “Revenge” moves to 10:00 Sun on 3/9 & “Resurrection” begins @ 9:00

    Does NASA let you surf the Internet while at your job at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory? You’re obviously a brilliant rocket engineer or something.
