  2. My December viewing is getting lighter and lighter. What is the NBC plan for Timeless? I believe it was given 16 episodes but I find it hard to believe it will get a second season renewal. It’s doing worse out of the Voice than Blindspot did.

    What will be the post Voice show in the spring?

    • The numbers show everyone’s viewing is getting lighter and lighter, so you’re not alone.

      Given renewals depend more on political backing than anything else, the order cut may have been to allow for a renewal that they’ll explain based on raw numbers, and which the plaint media will of course echo.

      We will know better. 🙂

  3. Hard to believe CBS used to tower over Mondays not so long ago…

    Speaking of flops, Conviction is never talked about and is one more of the many flops renewed by Channing Dungey last season to great effect….
