    1. That week off for Roseanne was bad, that was an idiot move right there, ABC should’ve learned from NBC’s mistake earlier in the season when Will & Grace lost its momentum from that one long break they had in between episodes. These days breaks will kill your series networks gotta let series ride straight through with no breaks.

      Great growth for Chicago Med out of Rise and boy oh boy was Rise low that series is not coming back.

      • I liked the promos for Rise during the Olympics but there was other shows I liked at the time and just forgot to watch it even OnDemand looks like it’s a goner as you said Larry.

        So did you like the draft picks for the Lions at first I wasn’t crazy about Frank Ragnow until seeing his stats and not giving up a sack in college O-Line isn’t a sexy pick, glad the Lions drafted RB I like the Johnson pick, really the only pick I didn’t like was walker in the 3RD round but he’s Slay’s cousin maybe going to be good.

      • I maintain that while the programming may not have been smart, it’s the quality )or lack thereof) of those shows that led them to lose viewership.

    2. Kudos Marc for daring to draw attention to Roseanne’s already huge drop.

      It’s not down to 10 million viewers, but we’ll see oodles more unneeded remakes because of its opening numbers and the incredibly low numbers for the Cavalcade of Failures known as the Networks’ schedule…

      Once again, a flash in the pan is being hailed as epoch-making.

      Glad you are there to bring some perspective.
