  3. This may be the stupidest question ever, but when you see that Ion beats the CW in viewers and ties in the demo…aren’t the fees to show the Criminal Minds repeats cheaper than producing JTV and CEG?

    • Not a stupid question, Louis. It probably is cheaper to show Criminal Minds, but CW will spin it that because they own both of their Monday shows, they’ll get more bang for their buck.

      • And now that you say that about owning them, I bet they would also spin that they are making money on them in other markets, although I have no idea if they have even been sold to other markets.

        • Of course. Spin is what they do best. After all, Bob Greenblatt recently said he didn’t need viewers to make money.

          And the press didn’t demand that he demonstrate how on the spot…

          I guess it’s called being polite, which is a good thing. 🙂

    • It’s A LOT cheaper. And the reason why I keep pointing out that CW is losing oodles of money.

  4. From ABC:

    ABC Monday Prime (8-11pm – 6.9 million and 1.8/6 in AD18-49): Against NBC’s The Voice and Blindspot, ABC finished a strong 2nd on Monday in Adults 18-49 (1.8/6), beating Fox by 29% (1.4/4) and CBS by 50% (1.2/4). The Net once again ranked #1 on the night with Adults 18-34 and Women 18-34.

    · ABC’s The Bachelor: The Women Tell All was Monday’s #1 TV program in Adults 18-34 and #2 in Adults 18-49 (behind only The Voice). In fact, The Bachelor was Monday’s #1 TV series for the 10th week running in Adults 18-34 and Women 18-34, beating NBC’s The Voice by 11% and 29%, respectively

    The Bachelor: The Women Tell All (8-10pm – 7.5 million and 2.2/7 in AD18-49): Opposite NBC’s The Voice from 8-10pm, ABC’s The Bachelor earned 2nd in Total Viewers (7.5 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.2/7) while winning its 2-hour slot with Adults 18-34 and Women 18-34.

    · The Bachelor Emerges as a Top Show with Upscale Viewers: Among Adults 18-49 in Homes with $100K+ Annual Income (4.96 rating), ABC’s The Bachelor ranks as the #4 broadcast entertainment series this season (behind only The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family and The X-Files, respectively) and is #1 among unscripted series.

    Castle (10-11pm – 5.7 million and 1.1/4 in AD18-49): At 10pm, ABC’s Castle grew 8% week to week in Total Viewers (5.7 million vs. 5.3 million) and held even with Adults 18-49 (1.1/4), drawing its biggest overall audience in 4 weeks – since 2/8/16. L+3 Playback for Last Week: Last Monday’s telecast of Castle surged to a 1.7 rating among Adults 18-49 in the L+3 numbers (from a 1.1 in L+SD), growing 6% over the prior week (1.6 rating) to match its highest L+3 rating of 2016.

  5. Lucifer is holding its own after Gotham. I really enjoy the show clever and witty writing!

  6. Once again we see CW clobbered by the Hispanic networks and be Ion…

    Mark Pedowitz must get a raise. He deserves it. It takes talent to achieve that kind of result with a nationwide network. No idea why Tribune is unhappy…

    Blindspot continues to show what a flop it is, squandering badly its lead-in. And Mr. Greenblatt bought more (of course!!)

    Gotham also continues to fail to impress, but I’m also counting on a renewal.

    I mean where else is FOX going to find 4 million viewers. 4 whole million!!! Beat the CW!!! I mean guys, if this isn’t renewal numbers I don’t know what is… 😉
