  2. I thought Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was an okay show, it has some charm to it, I wish I could say the same for it’s ratings, Monday at 8 pm is really The CW’s weak spot.

    • TV executives are in love with pseudo-edgy shows (“pseudo” because they have no lcue what a really edgy show would be like).

      CW, which specializes in failure, just loves being able to hype that show and just ignore the ratings (they always do anyway!)

  3. Worth noting that Lucifer grew out of Gotham in both total viewers and the Demo. Season finale next week!

    • Good observation. 🙂

      It reminds me I said to popular frowning and grinding of teeth that Gotham wold keep plunging this season.

      It never ceases to amaze be that TV executives can’t see those trends that you can read in Braille (as Chick Hearn used to say!)

  4. Sorry, but I have to disagree on Supergirl. It’s a bad performance and the show has failed. It can’t even equal NCIS LA, which is far from a hit.
