  1. Another good week for the Chicago twins but NBC needs to keep these two together next season and not move them just yet. Chicago Med can still get stronger in the future behind The Voice before moving it on its own.

    FOX needs to just cancel both comedies, nobody’s watching them or caring about them. ABC is just as bad as I always knew that Fresh Off the Boat should’ve never returned for a second season just a complete waste of time and scheduling space. The Real O’Neals is even worse and doesn’t need to return. I have no idea what ABC can do on Tuesdays but they need to completely scrap this night and how the fuck did Battlebots return? ABC really should’ve stuck with Rising Star and made it work. I was worried about the NBC’s Sunday comedies but look at ABC and FOX’s on Tuesdays makes me less worried.

    • After reading what Fox has lined up for next season, there’s a decent chance Grandfathered and/or The Grinder return (amazingly). But the ratings show they really shouldn’t.

      • At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if either one of them got renewed but like you said ratings show they should both be toast.

  2. I like to use the CW as a measure of when other shows shouldn’t be on the air. The Flash out rates ALL of Fox’s comedies in viewers and the demo. That’s awful

    I question if they will leave Chicago Med in this slot because they’d likely want to use something else there pending the Voice is back in the Fall (we know it will be).
