    • Good observation. 🙂

      It speaks to the extreme weakness of Gotham.

      As we discussed last year, there was no case to be made to renew Gotham and the numbers it got were entirely predictable.

  2. The Voice is ebbing really fast, but I guess it does that every year, probably through playing too often.

    Blindspot is a big ratings failure, but you’ll rarely read it in the media as it’s been renewed (apparently 50% retention is considered worthy by Bob Greenblatt!)
