  1. Strong numbers for the Gymnastics Olympic Trials as I’m not surprised it hit these kind of a numbers. I think these numbers are down a bit from 2012 as the trials overall are down from that year not sure what made 2012 so special honestly, 2016 seems more intriguing to me. Simone Biles is amazing to watch and Laurie Hernandez is fun too and she’s about to be a huge superstar after these games if she performs well in Rio because she’s a Spanish gymnast so that demographic will be hot for her like the black community was hot for Gabby Douglas and Sunday’s finals are setting up to be very thrilling with two of the last spots up for grabs. I think the first three are sealed with Simone, Laurie, and Aly Raisman and Gabby which was a lock before last night has to battle for her spot.

    Sunday’s ratings should hit a 2 and over 7 million viewers.

  2. One thing I’ve noticed on CBS Fridays is that NCIS: LA fits in really well with Five-0 and Blue Bloods and this is clearly a move CBS needs to make as NCIS: LA can settle in well here for a few years leading off the night. It’s not too late even though CBS has already been promoting MacGyver on Fridays but they should move it to a higher hut-level night maybe Sundays before the season starts or they can let MacGyver die in the fall and move NCIS: LA in midseason.

    • Not a bad idea, but I think MacGyver will fit relatively well into Hawaii Five-O.
