    I think The Blacklist will stay above a 2.0 the rest of the season. It’s going to have The Voice lead in again soon.

  • Ross


    They won’t even air in Chicago til Saturday. Anything that comes from them is essentially useless.

  • jenna

    A 2.2 for Sleepy Hollow. For a finale, lmao!!!!!!! Say hello to cancellation.

  • Maria

    @jenna Um that was for the first hour. Let me guess, your a BATB fan.

  • Chris

    Castle doesn’t seem able to hit that 10mil viewer mark anymore. It’s weakening badly, and when was the last time it won its timeslot against first-run competition on the other two nets?

    ABC needs to move it out of there, and see how it does without that big lead-in.

    Lots of openings on Friday. Where already-syndicated shows losing their audience go to die. :)

  • HeadlessHorseman

    I love how you ‘forgot’ to mention that the second hour got a 2.4

  • Tyler

    Castle has a stable audience. It’s always around that amount of viewers w/o the DWTS lead in. It’s doing fine where it is.

  • Shepherd

    It’s funny how fans of poorly performing shows can fight over whose show gets cancelled ‘worse’. Cancelled is cancelled, and both BaTB and TCD have one way tickets.

  • tam

    Castle total viewers are usually always below 10 mil in the Spring. It’s normal.

    Blacklist is doing great by NBC standards. It will be interesting to see how many viewers it will be able to get back when the Voice comes back.

  • John A

    At least with Intellegence bombing it makes TGW almost certain to be renewed.

  • Siami

    Good for Sleepy Hollow. Nice to see it adjust up.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    Normally, I’d say that comparing TCD to BATB is like comparing apples to oranges. But when you think about it, apples and oranges, like TCD and BATB, actually have a few things in common.

    Apples and oranges are both good for you.
    TCD and BATB both have terrible ratings.

    Apples and oranges are both fruits.
    TCD and BATB are both getting cancelled.

  • John A

    God Chris/Pisher get a life. 6 years you have been bashing Castle. Pick on Revenge Killer Women and more ABC flops.

  • Tom Shaw

    Whew, that was close. Beauty & the Beast still keeps the crown for most stable show, recording a 0.3 for every single first run airing this year. (Nikita and Hart of Dixie each have one week with a rating 0.1 higher than the usual.)

    Posters, keep that in mind the next time you want to laud a show’s stability as a major factor in renewal.

  • Charmed

    I’m convinced that @Shepherd and @HeadlessHorseman is the same person

  • Angie

    Jenna you are so blind and dumb.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    So because we both think that TCD is getting cancelled we have to be the same person? I know it’s tough when not everybody shares your opinion, but that’s just part of life.

  • Ultima

    Jenna you are so blind and dumb.

    Come on, that’s out of line. She’s clearly not blind. ;)

    “Sleepy Hollow!” I wouldn’t be surprised if FOX decides to bring it back early.
