  1. NBC took a hit all shows down 0.2 vs their last original installments. Blacklist has been off since November and it will be off another 6 weeks straight soon when the Blacklist spinoff airs.

    Big Bang Theory has a pretty good surge. Seems CBS will fall in to the same thing NBC did and find nothing that is at least 60% compatible with Big Bang Theory and BBT is getting old in the tooth so who knows how much longer the cast and crew want to go on.

    • Agree with you on Big Bang.

      When Les Moonves gave away the reins to Nina Tassler CBS lost the ability to greenlight hits.

      He needs to come back in charge and forget everything that he’s read in the press about what has to be picked and how.

      CBS can save itself by going back to what it used to do: ignore the other networks and ignore what critics say they should do.

      Can it do it?

      Blacklist never was a hot and needs to go, but it won’t because Bob Greenblatt has no ability to pick winners and is afraid he’ll get something doing worse.
