    Ravenswood viewers are down…..A lot, but if I had to choice between what show to be renewed Ravenswood or Twisted. I would go for Ravenswood, twisted is just to boring for me. The show really doesn’t go into detail about what’s going on, they keep focusing on the love triangles. Ravenswood doesn’t have love triangles so I’ll go with that

  • kay

    ravenswood is actually a pretty good show, but i wish it wasn’t tied to pretty little liars. they should have just found different way to write out caleb and given tyler blackburn a brand new character. shame it’ll probably get cancelled.

  • Ami

    I find it interesting that TVBTN continues to round their numbers up. Ravenswood actually had a 0.45 in the 18-49, and that’s a red flag.

  • Nikki

    @ ami well two different sites reported the same numbers for Ravenswood so I’m guessing that’s what it got. Just because you want it to do poor doesn’t mean they are making up numbers.

  • Hey

    I don’t like ravenswood but I do want it to do well because I don’t like Caleb and Hannah together for some reason.

  • DM

    @Ami, I for one learned in elementary school arithmetic that when rounding numbers to the nearest tenth, you round up then the hundredth is greater than or equal to 5 and you round down when the hundredth is less than 5. When you compare sites that post ratings to the tenth and ratings to the hundredth, every show is going to adjust either up or down. They aren’t making anything up, just basic mathematics.

  • Bumblebee

    Ravenswood is seeming like an official flop now. That rating is roughly on par with what it was doing without PLL. I think people just aren’t that interested. It probably has a better shot at being renewed than Twisted, assuming Twisted returns to similar ratings.

  • Oli

    I have been trying to watch Ravenswood and I have to say that it is probably one of the worse series on TV right now. The acting is so bad, the plot is absolutely ridiculous, the direction is really bad. I really wanted to like this show but it is so far-fetched! I am giving up. I am not a hater of the show, it is quite laughable actually. I am just saving my time to do more interesting things. So it’s goodbye Ravenswood for me.

  • iSayso

    PLL is the P in POS.

  • Nox

    Really not bad for Cougar Town, it only lost 0.2 rating points compared to the last week while the lead-in lost 0.5 points, so the retention growed.
    In it’s timeslot it was only 0.1 rating points behind Justified, which lost 0.3 points compared to the last week.

  • SP

    The main reason why The Daily Show and Colbert Report get so much attention is because their key demo ratings are really high. Advertisers care more about demo ratings than total viewers. Costs of 30 second commercials are based off of those key demo ratings (18-49). This is just to put things into perspective:

    The Daily Show gets on avg a .7 rating which equals 799,400 key demo viewers
    Colbert Report gets on avg a .6 rating which equals 685,200 key demo viewers
    OReilly Factor gets on avg a .3 rating which equals 342,600 key demo viewers

    This is why the O’Reilly Factor never makes the daily Top 100 cable shows list and why the Daily Show & Colbert Report always make into the Top 50 list…it’s because they base it on the Top Ratings (demo viewers, not total viewers).

    Advertisers don’t care about all those 70 and 80 year olds watching, they just care about the key demo ratings. Hence, why networks pay so much attention to those ratings.

  • gerry

    @ jenna

    you should familiarize yourself with was DOA actually means.

  • Ami

    @Nikki and @DM: Please don’t attribute meanings to my words that aren’t there. Of course TVBTN isn’t making numbers up. I never said they were. But they ARE rounding them. That’s the simple truth.

    I’m studying mathematics as a minor so I’ll tell you that, while rounding is mathematically legal, it is not always mathematically sound/logical, especially when rounding up/rounding down, especially when you have to account for significant margins of error when compiling data over time. If a tenth of a number is enough for execs to decide whether a show deserves a back order or a season renewal (which is about the difference between Twisted’s 18-49 average and that of The Fosters), then I think there’s a stark difference between 0.45 and 0.5.

    TVBTN has every right to round their numbers since most people are just interested in getting a general idea of how well a show is doing. If anyone wanted to actually make a statistical analysis of this data though, they will most likely use data that’s more exact.

  • Holly

    @Ami,

    It’s not really TVBTN’s choice to round or not round. Nielsen gets tetchy when they post more digits. Networks, ad companies, and others that actually pay for the numbers get less rounding.

  • Ami

    @Born to shine: The love triangle was a HUGE flaw in Twisted’s writing and I will tell you that many fans were extremely upset at the fact that the writers threw that in there since it not only derailed the main plot but it also short-changed all of the main characters. It was such a basic thing to do on the part of the writers and we’re all hoping that that’s behind us. I think, based on the spoilers, the next half of the season will center a lot more on the mystery though. When the writing is balanced with the mystery and the relationships, that’s when Twisted does very well.

  • d4h8a15r16m23a42

    If I’m not mistaken that is around what Kroll Show got last year with new Tosh.0 as a lead in so it isn’t terrible. Probably won’t see a third season though which is a shame cause it is quite funny.

  • Ami

    @Holly: Thanks for your explanation. So are you implying that the other site that I will not name that posts numbers without rounding pays more? Either way it’s not really a big deal. I just found in interesting, is all.

  • Holly

    @Ami,

    I don’t know. Maybe they aren’t posting as many shows. Or maybe it’s in a forum so less regulated. Or maybe they just haven’t drawn the notice of Nielsen. TVBN used to post far more information (more digits, 18-34 ratings, etc) but stopped after some conversations with Nielsen.

  • Ami

    @Holly: Yeah I don’t think they post as many shows as TVBTN. It’s definitely not a forum format but I don’t think it’s as popular as TVBTN so I guess that accounts for something. On that note, I think Nielsen ratings are ridiculous and outdated for polling such a small number of the population, even moreso for the fact that they’re still used for ad rates but it’s what networks insist on using so there’s really no other choice :/

  • rooney72

    Justified was down to it’s usual mid-season level. Let’s hope it stays there and doesn’t drop further.
