  1. Very good bounce back night for NBC as LBS going up gets everything behind it up as well. So it looks like those people who used the Easter and extra competition excuses from the weeks before were right. Good to see Carmichael and Crowded both up and up two-tenths instead of one and up in viewership as well although one of these two are likely to fall in finals.

    Crowded right now has gotten itself back into a favorable position of getting renewed and it won’t lose its ground from this week because it’s getting the LBS lead-in next week with a special two-episode week giving Carmichael some rest.

    One of the really good things about Crowded’s performance this week is that it did something that I pointed out after its first Sunday airing that it needed to do at some point during the season if it had any chances of getting renewed and that was to show some sign of growth and not just stabilize every week. I think Crowded was in great position to achieve this based on how quickly it stabilized over the past couple of weeks as its ratings were the same every week meaning it had a small but loyal audience and any kind of growth was on the horizon.

    For Crowded I believe it’s already done something that Telenovela wasn’t able to do behind a stronger lead-in in the demo and that’s get out of fractional territory at some point, once Telenovela got in fractional territory it stayed in fractional territory so it may have killed any slim chances that Telenovela had of returning. Also it seems stronger than Undateable but its hard to read because Undateable aired on a Friday with tougher competition and lead-off so I can’t make a good comparison just yet on those two except the fact that NBC owns Crowded and they don’t own Undateable. Either way Crowded is looking good for right now.

    Carmichael quality wise continues to get better and better every week and last night might’ve been the best episode out of all of them so far as it was good to see One Tree Hill’s Antwon Tanner back on TV. This really is turning into the best comedy on all of television right now and I would highly recommend anybody reading this who is curious about the show to start tuning into it.

    • Sorry, but Carmichael is a disaster.

      It lost over 60% of its lead-in.

      In any era with sane people at the helm, it would have been pulled immediately and replaced by a 20/20 re-run.

  2. I’m sure NBC is finally happy to have found /something/ to work on Sunday other than football.

    • Exactly. But I don’t believe they’ll mess with success by airiing Little Big Shots in the fall like on Thursdays especially with incoming Thursday Night Football. Sundays again starting next midseason seems more likely.

  3. Wow! Those Carmichael numbers really are hideous!!!!

    No wonder Bob Greenblatt wants more.
