  • Flop Night lol

    • renamoretti1

      Exactly. 🙁

      When the disaster called Elementary can win its hour, you know you’re in flop-ville.

  • Hello Larry

    Looks like the demos went straight to TNT for the NBA All-Star Game. Viewership wise the night wasn’t that bad particularly for CBS which had a good outing from NCIS: LA.

    I’m interested in that NBC special I actually recorded it because I love watching television history stuff like that. I’m going to watch it sometime this week when I get the chance. I think NBC will do something bigger for their 100th anniversary in 2027 like they did back in 2002 for their 75th anniversary where they had all of the stars there like in an award setting. If you’re a young television fan like you were born after the 2000s you should watch this show and brush up on your television history because NBC had many hits that aired on their network.

      Demos are really not important, although it does feel like Karmic justice to see NBC hoisted on its own ageist petard.

  • JimU

    I wonder if all the old people that watched The Good Fight will be annoyed that they will have to subscribe to a service they don’t understand to watch additional episodes.

    • Louis

      I wondered the same thing. I wonder how many will be looking for it on regular network tv next Sunday evening…
