  1. With the way it was treated, I’m glad to see Mike & Molly going out solid. It’s doing pretty much the same as the non Big Bang Theory comedies on Thursday.

  2. Marc – You put Gotham on at the 9PM hour. That was Houdini and Doyle.

    Speaking of which, Houdini and Doyle . . . . will Fox let all the episodes air or pull it? These numbers will get worse after finales next week going in to the slump of summer

    Castle . . . another show that needs to know when to call it wraps. Cast members leaving and ratings being depressed. At least the Good Wife called it quits when it was time. Castle appears to be milking it at this point.

      • Probably right on that one. But it will surely continue to trend downward. At the very least, move it from this time slot

        • That’s the usual faulty executive logic. Because they keep greenlighting bad shows that flop, they renew old shows that have lost their audience, thus preventing taking more chances.

          Of course, the pre-requisite to doing better is finding people who will stop ordering from the Greg Berlanti-Rob Thomas-Seth MacFarlane etc… small group of flop-makers.

    • Thanks for the correction. 🙂

      I am in awe at how awful the 10pm numbers are all over the board.

      Hard to remember this used to be a highly-rated slot for CBS for years.

  3. The Voice is clearly way overexposed and losing ground fast.

    PoI is predictably doing badly. Yet another self-inflicted blow by Nina Tassler.
