  1. So my prediction that the Flash will throw Fox in 5th place (not counting the spanish networks and a few others) was right on the money . Awful awful awful. Fox it is time to scrap all this and start over.

    I didn’t watch No Tomorrow and have no interest to do so. No surprise by those numbers. At this rate, the CW should just stick to science fiction and comic book shows since they seem to draw at least interest and more buzz.

    • Fox is in a real bind this fall, but this is something almost every observer could foresee since May. Such a lackluster lineup. It was time for them to be much bolder in their scheduling and series development and they did the opposite of that.

      • Yep. Apparently all of us but them saw it. FOX has gone the NBC route with low rated niche comedies. NBC seems to have learned from this mistake for the most part but FOX just seems to keep it going. I heard a while back they were thinking of reviving the X factor. At this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if they did!

        • Don’t know that NBC really learned much of anything, at least when it comes to scripted shows.

          They’ve been as devoid of scripted hits as FOX has.

          But you have a point if you mean it’s hard to do worse than six seasons of New Girl and renewing Scream Queens (but Channing at ABC is trying hard!!)

    • What?!!! Scrap super-maga-hit-that-will-make-us-tons-of-money-in-syndication New Girl??!

      Perish the thought.

      It would be admitting we were wrong when we started making it and renewed it in spite of no ratings… 😉

      I am of course totally in sync with you on what FOX should have done years ago (ans Brooklyn 9-9 was also a dud in season one).

      CW put itself in a situation where, even if they had a great show, they’d have trouble getting sampling done.

      Years and years of hyping bad shows (Gossip Girl comes to mind but there were many others) have paid big dividends…

      The small audience of die-hard comic-book/SF fans who will watch anything in the genre seems indeed bigger that what they can attract otherwise, but it’s settling for failure.

      Then again settling for failure is what CW does best.
