    The drops by half hour for Emerald City, while not drastic, are not a good sign.

    • FlopWatch

      Keep in mind that even a low rated show like The Exorcist premiered with a 1.0.

      • renamoretti1

        The demo number is quite irrelevant in any case… Those are bad numbers, but not as awful as disasters like Crazy Ex Girlfriend which just got a 3rd season with no viewers, so look for NBC to scream “Smash Hit”… 🙁

        • FlopWatch

          The CW renews low rated shows, and even then there were other factors in that case.

          • renamoretti1

            CW renews flops. It apparently loves to flop.

            The feeling is apparently catching as Hollywood has, en masse, embraced flopping and keep making more and more. 🙁

            On a different note, I do like your nick. 🙂 It’s what ratings watch has become…

          • FlopWatch

            Thanks.

          • renamoretti1

            You bet!!

  • Marc Berman

    It was right on far with Grimm, which is exactly what I expected.

    • renamoretti1

      It’s bad for NBC, but they’ll look at it as good…

      That’s why they keep failing…

  • renamoretti1

    Crazy Ex Girlfriend strikes out laughably once again and get a thrid season…

    What a joke?

    I keep wondering why nobody in the media investigates (or even acknowledges) this clear scandalous waste?

    On FOX, more ratings pain for Sleepy hollow. Another huge waste of money…

    The theme of the 2010s? Our networks throwing money at flops for reasons unknown…

    • Consequently, one of the biggest themes in his Q&A session was the network’s loyalty to programs like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “Jane the Virgin,” despite their low linear ratings.

      “It has nothing to do with numbers,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said. “‘Crazy Ex,’ ‘Jane,’ as franchises, have helped alter the perception of what the CW has become. When you have great critical work, critically acclaimed, award-nominated shows like ‘Crazy,’ it deserved to be picked up. Sometimes with critically acclaimed, great programming, you just [renew it] and hope that it finds an audience. In today’s fragmented world, [awards nominations] give you a calling card.”

        Thanks for the quick response. 🙂 Much, much appreciated. 🙂

        I’m glad the question was asked.

        Was the follow-up: “Your answer is nonsensical, what is really going on?” asked? 😉

        It’s probably hoping for too much.

        Personally, I find those answers pat and not believable.

        Flops don’t get you a “calling card”. Nobody actually thinks that. They also didn’t alter the perception of CW: it’s still known as “What’s CW?” by the public since they renew flops nobody watches.

        [not answering you – answering Mr. Pedowitz’ non-reponse] 🙂

        Again thanks for the quote. 🙂
