  3. Ouch at ABC.

    I am sad about Elementary. I know that its ratings deserve the Sunday banishment but sad to realize that this will probably be its last year.

      • maybe with OUAT they can do specials – like 6 eps here and there …or maybe show exclusively on Disney Network…but yes the numbers are quite low ..(How about DVR increase though) ?…

    • Well, for those like me who never liked it, banishment was too sweet for a show that I considered a flop from its first year. 😉

  4. I said it before many of times ABC should get away from original series on Sundays and go back to specials, mini-series, and movies of the week to draw in different crowds every week. FOX needs to do the same with that played out animation block and move that to a different night of the week as they need to using the NFL lead-in to boost things.

    So far so good for NCIS: LA on its new night and time.

  5. ABC’s trio of renewed flops is sinking ABC (Congrats Ms. Dungey for making that great decision!!)

    Speaking of renewed flops, Last Man on Earth also delivered the bad ratings that could be expected…

    Football was oddly low-rated, while I am surprised at NCIS LA’s relative strength.
