  1. I’ve enjoyed Superior Donuts so far. Episode 1 was a bit stronger but this has potential. CBS seems to be overall benefiting from no DWTS or Voice competition. Its not like the Bachelor is really the same crowd. Speaking of ABC, its official: stick a fork in Quantico. If they have any hopes for Time After Time, it should air on Monday’s at 10. I’d slide Quantico back to Sundays for burn off. Ditto for Agents of Shield. Even with DVR numbers it’s bad. The network is better off giving American Crime the comedy lead in on Tuesdays.

    • I don’t see what rationale could be used to keep Quantico or Timeless at this point. I think one of the things with Quantico is the jumping around so much in the timeline. It’s more confusing this season than last season.

      I’m starting to believe ABC will give Agents of SHIELD a reduced 5th and final season.

      • The same rationale used last year to renew Quantico… 😉

        It was a disaster last year and everyone with a quarter of a brain knew that awful ratings were coming for the whole season…

        Where are the adults at the networks?!

  2. Interesting ratings night on this Monday after the Super Bowl as I will start with FOX because I think the ratings reactions on it seem mixed but confused. People seem more confused on 24’s ratings than certain. I’m more in the leaving the door open mindset because I will like to see how it performs over the next couple of weeks before The Voice comes in. All of these shows airing on Mondays this spring will be impacted heavily by The Voice and DWTS so I’m letting people know right now I will be giving these shows full excuses.

    24 to me had a solid outing but it has room to drop so with this show I will need to see how it does in the next two weeks. The shock to me was how well APB performed after it where it kept all of its audience and even had a rock solid half-hour to half-hour performance. FOX under the radar is having a solid season for its freshmen shows not all of them but most of them as Star did better last week and I think if APB holds up it’s a realistic partner for Lethal Weapon in the future. For FOX sakes they need APB to work for them so that they can reconstruct either Tuesdays or Thursdays with Lethal Weapon and APB.

    For CBS I thought this was a solid night despite the drop-off from January as Superior Donuts has already made this a more cohesive night although SD’s performance wasn’t spectacular it was solid or okay enough to help 2 Broke Girls actually improve Odd Couple’s timeslot at 9:30pm so CBS has to be happy about that. If SD can hold up it will be a great bench option for them next season because I think CBS has problems with The Great Indoors, Sheldon, and Life in Pieces on their own and will need a show like SD to come in and do the job.

    I can’t say enough about how well that Kevin Can Wait and Man with a Plan duo is performing this season as Man with a Plan looks a lot stronger lately than it did just about a month ago that’s why I’m holding out hope for SD to grow although it will be highly difficult with The Voice and DWTS coming back.

    • The 24 remake is already a dud. It’s only because the media keeps lowering the bar that it’s not identified as such already.

      The bar is now literally at 0 viewers as shown with renewals of shows like Jane The Virgin…

  3. Is the 24 series suppose to be a limited series or will this be a show up for renewal for the Fall? If these numbers for both shows retain in this range, no doubt FOX will give them a second season. If this does happen, they will probably leave them in this slot which puts the Gotham/Lucifer combo in limbo (I don’t think Fox will rid them because they have so many issues right now). And I really don’t want Lucifer to go away because it’s a damn good show with great writing! I just wish I didn’t have to wait until May 1.

    Put a fork in Quantico and Timeless. Timeless concludes Feb 20 and that will likely be the series finale. That’s the lowest I have seen /any/ show in that time slot for NBC in years. Quantico is just flailing at this point. I think a lot has to do with the jumping around so much. It’s worse this season than last and probably a lot got tired of it. They did kill off a popular character last season and for a freshman show that probably wasn’t the best move.

    Jury is out on what NBC does with the Apprentice. And CBS looks stable at least.

    Supergirl is decent though I miss Cat Grant! And Jane the Virgin had a “shock” ending last night.

  4. Yikes for a night that used to have hits…

    Special Mention to Quantico and Jane The Virgin, 2 entirely self-inflicted disasters.

    And Mark Pedowitz and Channing Dungey are still cashing their big checks… 🙁
