  2. Why is FOX cancelling Idol again? Stupid decision especially because they will likely be rebooting it in 2-3 years anyways. Idol minus well be two hours on Wednesdays instead of one because Hell’s Kitchen is not doing any good there.

    NBC Wednesdays having a good season this year as they did a great job taking advantage of the last night before February Sweeps. Dick Wolf is the main man on this network two nights in a row where his shows touched the top of the network this week. SVU is going to see a 20th season at this rate and Chicago PD doing a great job of only scoring behind its mother Chicago Fire and SVU this week and beating Chicago Med. Queen Laura is slaying to a third season.

    Odd tumble for the CBS comedies but still pretty good although I gotta believe after BBT is over 2017 that Chuck Lorre will be a hot free agent as he should take Mom with him wherever he goes, NBC or FOX should pick him. Code Black’s performance was horrible this week this show is on life support right now as I think it all depends on Limitless and CM: Beyond Borders if it comes back next season.

    Decent for Madoff especially viewership wise but horrible for AC which needs to be shopped to Netflix or something if it wants a third season. I think AC just gave Nashville another life to get a fifth season as I think ABC will keep it on especially with that country partnership it has with the CMAs.

    • Curious what makes you think that Chuck Lorre would want to leave CBS (assuming he doesn’t retire) or that BBT will be over in 2017 given it’s the highest-rated comedy on TV (by far!)

      • They haven’t had anything new in development from him and they seem to be slowly but surely moving away from his comedies. Mom is his only comedy left after that 2016-17 season.

        • Thanks for the response. 🙂 Sorry I don’t check my the board too often any longer.

          There really is no reason to think BBT won’t be there after 2017. It’s the only comedy hit on television and as long as the cast doesn’t make really outrageous demands it’s a sure thing it will be there for a number of years.

          Even if it lost 1/3 of its audience it would still beat all other comedies!!

  3. FROM NBC

    ‘THE TONIGHT SHOW’ AND ‘LATE NIGHT’ DOMINATE WEEK OF JAN. 25-29, WINNING IN ALL KEY CATEGORIES
