    Cougar Town was good, but Community’s still better.

  • TC

    @The Old Man

    Last summer, Graham Yost confirmed that his plan was for Justified to end after its sixth season, so it’s extremely unlikely that this will be the final season.

    Those are good numbers for Cougar Town. Although, yeah, it’s a pretty big drop from the lead-in.

  • Kissan

    PLL got a good rating for a boring episode last night. I saw a The Originals promo during PLL, why are the promoting their competition? Meh for Ravenswood, at least we know it can stand on its own. It’s doing much better than Twisted that’s for sure. Amazing for Haves & Have Nots but I was expecting a 1.0 but a 0.9 is still good. Good for Shahs Of Sunset and Dance Moms as well. Can’t wait for Monday cause that’s when The Fosters come back!

  • Jonathan

    Regarding Snooki and JWOWW, Snooki said recently that she really isn’t interested in another season regardless of what MTV May decide. JWOWW could probably get a baby and marriage show or special though.

  • paddii

    I was hoping Cougar Town would score 1s :/ but oh well. I don’t see another season happening. The episode order was reduced for this season and now they have enough episodes for syndication…

  • rob60990

    Awful for Cougar Town. It lost almost half its lead-in which was a repeat. Embarrassing. There were ads all over the place for its return.

    PLL didn’t do as well as I thought considering how the season finale and the Halloween special did which ended on a huge cliffhanger.

  • William

    Enjoyed Being Mary Jane the writing on this show, is way better than anything Tyler Perry could write. Now don’t get my wrong i enjoyed The have and have nots as well, just enjoyed Mary Jane more.

  • Krystaaal

    @Andy – Snooki and JWOWW are on the list with a 0.5
    Cougar Town is doing great, it was up and down between lots of 0.8′s and a few 1.0′s last year, so 0.9 is really good and nothing to worry about!

    Nice to see Justified back. One of my favs.

  • Alan

    I will be shocked if Ravenswood gets renewed. Twisted can go to another night and pull similar numbers, but it seems like Ravenswood depends of PLL to have good ratings and I guess ABCFAM wants to use PLL as a lead-in to promising shows.

  • Garrett

    Hopefully someone can explain this to me. Why can’t other networks purchase and run TBBT? It does ungodly numbers for TBS, so why can’t USA or somebody purchase syndication rights as well?

  • Kyle

    @The old man

    Next season is the one that might be the last for Justified.

  • Holly

    @Garrett,

    TBS probably paid for exclusive rights. They would have to give that up in order for anyone else to run episodes as well.

    COUGARTOWN

    why do people say Cougar town ratings are bad. I’m not sure I know of any cable show cancelled with ratings around 1.0. recently. I understand it may be a little more expensive than the avg cable show because it switched from broadcast. Didn’t it hit a 1.3 last season a couple times. TBS couldn’t have expected much more than what it is getting when they agreed to buy the series. I guess we will find out after this season if TBS will keep it and that will shed some light on whether this was solely a move to syndication or if the show is doing well enough to keep it going on the cable financial model. I’m curious because if community gets canceled this season I’m thinking it could pull around a 1.0 on cable and think a cable channel should take it if its at all possible. Happy endings couldn’t make the jump last year to cable so im curious what behind the scenes variables come in to play that make so tough for a series to jump to cable. Is it unwillingness to creatively alter the budget or other road blocks. The southland switch to TNT and friday night lights direct TV deal were the most interesting show jump of the last 5 years and there have been others so its not impossible. Just an interesting situation to me and it makes me curious. I feel the studios/networks are powerful enough to take some risk to extend the life of certain bubble shows more than they do, especially in syndication proximity situations like CT and happy endings and have it pay off in the long term even if its only a small profit its still worth it.

    @rob60990
    If a show does worse than expected, you laugh because it was hyped a lot, like Cougar Town. When a show does better than expected, you say it’s only because it was hyped a lot, like Scandal.

    Wait a minute. You don’t hate certain shows regardless of their ratings do you? No, that doesn’t sound like you.

  • SerferTJ

    How could ANYONE say Being Mary Jane didn’t perform well
    a) It’s a BRAND NEW SERIES
    b) It was the #1 cable show of the night
    c) It had a TON of competition with new episodes from CBS, NBC, ABC, FX, and TBS
    d) The repeat got a 0.8 (about what Real Husbands of Hollywood usually gets)

    You really can’t compare a TV movie premiere in July, where the competition is low and it had a 1.7 lead in, to a series premiere in the premiere week in January.
