  1. Damn like more than half of the night bombed hard doesn’t look good for ABC next week. I knew The Menendez Brothers was gonna bomb hard so that’s two strikeouts in a row for NBC’s new 10pm dramas. NBC should’ve just started Chicago Med on-time.

    • Many wanted NBC to put a similar to “This is Us” type show at the 10PM hour for compatibility sake. But NBC went with a stark contrast show instead.

      CBS is very low in the Demo at 10PM

      • Yep NBC made a lot of moves that people didn’t want for this fall season, I think what they have to watch out for both new dramas now because one of them might have to replaced in November by Chicago Med. CBS is too low in the demo at 10pm they still haven’t fixed those problems.

  2. Very soft opening for NCIS, which still beat This Is Us, no matter what NBC’s PR keeps saying…

    Good opening for This Is Us. It is solidly solid at this juncture (don’t ask me why, you’d have to pay me!). NBC will say it’s a major hit of course… 🙁

    Menendez has flopped.

    Bull is barely solid. NCIS: NOLA is out of juice.

    Leathal Weapon, The Mick and Brooklyn 9-9 are still flops (big surprise there – well done Newman and Walden!)

    DWTS looks on its last legs. Too bad ABC never used it to find new hits…
