  1. Wednesdays at 8pm should be a top priority for NBC next season they need to fix that hour and get something stronger in there because time after time its been proven that SVU and CPD will both go up. Ever since the removal of Laura both SVU and CPD have struggled a little bit trying to rise from its sad lead-ins so if this hour is fixed going forward that will keep SVU and CPD upright and NBC might have a chance at leading the night or coming in 2nd especially since the ABC Wednesday comedy block is showing signs of dying and FOX Wednesday is one power program away from being knocked out. It wouldn’t surprise me if The X-Files does better than Empire this winter.

    Good to see my little baby Dynasty getting back over 700k viewers as I’m hoping it’s starting to gain momentum with Nicolette Sheridan coming in as Alexis later in the season because the show is great and addicting to watch. Dynasty regardless of how its ratings started this season will be back for a second season thanks to those international deals and Netflix.

    • It amazes me that the two highest rated regular series of the night are both elder statesmen across all the TV landscape.

      • Yeah that is amazing as those shows have been around since the turn of the century and are making it into their 3rd decade of existence. It seems like it comes down to people just not really trying out new shows anymore as I’ve noticed anything released after the time BBT came out is not getting watched for the most part unless it’s a true lucky hit. Like if Will & Grace was brand new it’d be struggling like Great News but people were familiar with it. People seem to be sticking to what’s familiar with them instead of checking out new stuff.

        • I think you are right about W&G. I wonder how large of a percentage of people watching the current version were viewers from the old show. I wonder if they have picked up any new viewers who either discovered it on cable or the premise peaked their interest.

          • And about W&G, their current ratings are lower than the lowest they had then, which is not surprising given they were canceled for low and falling ratings.

            Again, bad shows = no ratings = no money.

            That’s the death spiral network TV is in and all the talk about imaginary big money from Netflix for flops won’t change a thing about it.

          • That’s a very good question because I think it will be interesting to know how many of those W&G viewers were watching the original series watching the current series now. I really want to know how many new viewers are tuning in because it’s possible from 2006-17 they’ve picked up a lot of new viewers and probably picked up even more since the relaunch of the series. My guess is that the original viewers are dominating the percentages but it’s probably a good amount of new viewers as well.

            I think NBC needs to get an estimate of that number somehow someway because this might be the difference in how many viewers they can get to watch one of their new comedies if it’s possible or if they need to stick to reboots.

            • If it picked up lots of new viewers, then it lost even more of its original viewers as the ratings are much lower than they were in the original run…

      • It is, as we have amply discussed, because the new shows are terrible. Audiences aren’t fooled.

      • Google is paying 97$ per hour,with weekly payouts.You can also avail this.
