    • I have to imagine that NBC — even with a repeat Voice lead in — was expecting Carmichael to do better than matching its SUMMER premiere numbers. Hopefully it’ll do a bit better on Sunday.

        • Yes it’s following Little Big Shots this Sunday with two all-new episodes then Crowded gets a preview behind The Voice on Tuesday then it takes over the 9:30pm timeslot the following the Sunday.

      • NBC should’ve expected it to do better but I personally saw this kind of a rating happening mainly due to the fact that it wasn’t following a real episode of The Voice, once I found out last night’s show was a clips show I knew Carmichael had a chance of getting this rating. Let’s see how it does out of Little Big Shots, I don’t think The Voice helps comedies very well and AGT was a better fit for Carmichael. I’m expecting Crowded to do a similar rating this Tuesday.

        • I can’t imagine that LBS will get the ratings that the Voice did, even in repeat, so I feel that that does not bode well for Carmichael on Sunday.

          • I expect the same as well, LBS probably draws the same ratings this clips show did for The Voice but the difference could be the audience that night. So if the audience for LBS is willing to stick around Carmichael might stay around 1.1 or 1.0 and not go fractional. I really think NBC should switch the two and go with Crowded behind LBS the week after.

            • It did 4 million viewers behind a 9 million lead-in… It’s really, rally awful even if you do make a good point that the two shows may not be all that compatible.

              Then again, it’s The Voice or one of the many comedy flops as a lead-in. Which would you want if you were Carmichael?

      • It just goes to show Bob Greenblatt can’t even tell when a flop is a flop.

        There was no reason to renew Carmichael. It was a given that it would die a painful ratings death based on its first seasons numbers and yet, here Bob goes, wasting millions of a show that never had the ghost of a chance.

        Bonus check time? 😉

  3. Carmichael should’ve done much better but this was only a Voice clips show and not a regular edition of The Voice that scores a much bigger audience so if it can hold these numbers on Sundays it will be fine. Carmichael got around these same numbers back in the summer after a lower AGT so AGT might be a better fit with Carmichael than The Voice is which has never ever truly helped any comedies to-date. Little Big Shots I imagine has an audience similar to AGT so that might help Carmichael.

    • 4 million viewers out of 9 is not fine in any way.

      Then again, it flopped last season too so why not a third season.

      Renewing flops is the new renewing hits this century… 😉 🙁

      Same comment for CSI Cyber. 6 million viewers, even coming from 2 isn’t good.

      The networks have two hits left (three if you count The Voice – let’s be nice and say three 🙂 ). They need shows that don’t need a hit as a lead-in to get so-so ratings.
