Is that like a pilot halting the decent of his plane when it hits the ground? "Sorry faults, that wasn't the pilot's fault... it was the asphault. Ba dum dum".
Oct. 19, 2010, 9:39 p.m. CST
Hunh. Well, I hope the creators are preparing to wrap everything up by the season's end because unless those ratings pick up, season two ain't happening.
Oct. 19, 2010, 9:43 p.m. CST
The Event might get a second year because NBC can't cancel their entire schedule other than The Biggest Loser, L&O:SVU, and half their Thursday night line up. Most of their shows get that rating or worse. The Event's ratings are actually good for NBC. For any other network other than NBC or The CW, not so much.
Oct. 19, 2010, 9:46 p.m. CST
a Tennessee blowout of Jacksonville, the entire CBS line up, Dancing with the Stars, and House can get more viewers than an ALCS game.

But I'm tired of these numbers here. They are not representing what people actually watch. Normal people watch stuff online or record things. Like 2 1/2 Men is number 1? Over football and playoff baseball? How many hicks and retards do they ask to be apart of these things? Most of CBS's programming is for people who did make it through high school this is pathetic.
Oct. 19, 2010, 10:46 p.m. CST
plus two teams that have no national presence (esp, JAX). I'm a football fan and only gamblers and fantasy fanatics stay tuned after the first quarter. The ratings will double/triple next week when Giants play Dallas, and let's see what the Event or 2.5 men does against that.
Oct. 19, 2010, 11 p.m. CST
As if the game wasn't bad enough, after seeing my beloved Jaguars get whipped like rented mules, I find out that the game got beat in the ratings by 2 1/2 Men. Good lord. What is this world coming to?
Oct. 19, 2010, 11:12 p.m. CST
Got very good buzz for Monday night. The ratings stabilizing means that people liked last week's show. Next week's should rise a bit.
Oct. 20, 2010, 12:29 a.m. CST

. . . now I REALLY see how bad it was to put the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday Night.
Oct. 20, 2010, 8:17 a.m. CST
seriously. then again, i don't know a single person that watches 2 & 1/2 men. i imagine the people that do watch those shows strongly resemble herc's avatar.
Oct. 20, 2010, 8:19 a.m. CST
but its live ratings in the Fall/Winter are going to be largely dependent upon what teams are playing Monday Night.
Oct. 20, 2010, 8:21 a.m. CST
The two lead actors are appealing, but the writing is TERRIBLE. Incredibly awful... not one good joke in the whole show. Plus, the guy who plays the partner is wall-eyed or something. He creeps me out.
Oct. 20, 2010, 8:31 a.m. CST
...about 2 1/2 beating MNF. This week's game (Titan's vs Jags) was one of the most boring Monday night games to ever air.
Oct. 20, 2010, 8:48 a.m. CST
That's all I watch on mondays. Hope lie to me and castle keep going.
Oct. 20, 2010, 9:26 a.m. CST
Usually catch it on hulu a day or two later, but it still says something that I've made time each week to keep up with it. It's interesting, because Sean and Leila are, I know, the better part of the show. Their relationship is strong, the acting is good, and I really buy their love. I mean, they're no Desmond and penny, but I believe in them. However, it's usually the less interesting part of the show too. The prisoners storyline is much hanmier, sillier, and really, just less quality overall, but it's still the more interesting storyline to me. Maybe just because we don't know how Sean and Leila is connected to the larger events yet. But I've enjoyed it. It was weird because last night was the first time, I thought, that the episode was hood overall, but the last 5 minutes were really underwhelming, when usually it's been the opposite. Biggest problem is I have no idea where it's going or what the point of the show. Even losts first season, as much as they didn't have the overall story set in stone yet, you immediately knew what the show was supposed to be about. I don't know what the event is actually about yet. But it's still fairly enjoyable. It moves along at a blistering pace most episodes too. They feel like 20 minutes long.

It seems that it must've been better rated than Chase. Am I wrong? It's sad to see that an intriguing show like Journeyman got the heave-ho so early on, but NBC will hold on to worthless crap forever. Take Heroes, for instance. That show sucked since seaon 2 and kept losing viewers week after week. Yet NBC kept spending money on it. What a shame.

Castle is one of the most entertaining shows on TV. I want it to stick around for a long time. Tune in if you've never seen it. Nathan Fillion is great. So is the rest of the cast.
Oct. 20, 2010, 10:12 a.m. CST
...Event has finally halted its slide, and yet Chuck which has been stable all season long (so far) is still barely above its low? If I remember correctly, last time it was reported that Chuck was on cancellation watch because of a 0.1 variance, yet Event was hot even with the MAJOR dropoffs. No favoritism here.
Oct. 20, 2010, 10:22 a.m. CST
Nielsens are as obsolete as record labels, fucking relics of the 20th century that should be abandoned
Oct. 20, 2010, 10:22 a.m. CST
Tirico is tolerable but Jaworski and Gruden are insufferable. Five-O isn't a bad show; I was afraid of it being CSI: Hawaii but it packs in a lot of old school action.
Oct. 20, 2010, 10:45 a.m. CST
This guy Gruden is an outstanding commentator.
Oct. 20, 2010, 10:46 a.m. CST
Chuck is not. That is a major, major difference that does actually natter. The event airs in many countries, and it has thy bug budget, big cast, globe trotting feel that international productions love. Chuck does not. At all.
Oct. 20, 2010, 10:53 a.m. CST
3.5<br>3.2 <br>2.9 <br>2.7 <br>2.4 <br>2.2 <br>2.1 <br>2.4 <br>2.2 <br>2.4 <br>1.7 <br>1.5 <br>1.7 <p>By the time those last 3 episodes aired the strike was in full swing and it was pretty much a given the show was cancelled. <p> Compare that to Chase and it does seem NBC had much higher ratings expectations pre-strike than they do today. Plus, Monday night is much more open now than it was then (in 2007 CSI Miami was one of the highest rated shows on tv and dominated Monday 10pm). On the other hand, who owns the show (produces it) probably has a great deal to do with its renewal or cancellation when the ratings aren't what the networks want or expect.

I enjoy it, but am getting frustrating that they are making us watch blindly without revealing what the heck the Event even is. Mystery is good, but walking blindfolded and barefooted through a broken glass maze and expecting them to guide us is just annoying.
Oct. 20, 2010, 11:52 a.m. CST
about anything else, when the Rangers play, my TV is right there. GO RANGERS!!!
Oct. 20, 2010, 11:55 a.m. CST
I enjoy the show and am intrigued enough to stay with it. It has a lot of concepts I love is probably more accurate. However, my main point is I expect the live showing to be crushed by football most nights.
Oct. 20, 2010, 12:04 p.m. CST
So was Heroes, and that didn't save it in the end.
Oct. 20, 2010, 12:24 p.m. CST
They are a fourth place (occasionally fifth place) network. None of their new shows has caught fire and are lucky to come in third in any given timeslot. They don't have anything lined up (especially in hour longs) to fill up space if they pull shows. Zucker left them with nothing in the cubbard. <br><br> Their only options are to either: <br><br> 1 - Keep what they've got and muddle through this season and hope they can start fresh rebuilding next year. <br><br> 2 - Pull shows over from USA to fill the gaps. And while it might be fun to see Psyche, Burn Notice or one of USAs other dramadies on NBC they won't get much better ratings than what the current shows are getting and NBC risks diluting USAs brand by moving them to broadcast. And since USA is one the key reasons Comcast is buying them they can't risk that.

Am I crazy or did they hire a new actress to play her? http://www.scriptgirl.net/
Oct. 20, 2010, 12:53 p.m. CST
It's just astounding that the two networks are related.
Oct. 20, 2010, 5:46 p.m. CST
That's why it didn't win. Some folks forget about or don't find or whatever. Plus the Titans/Jags was blow-out and both starting QB's were injured. OK, enough excuses.

...to the 'who cares' matchup. Next week will be different. <p> And yeah, Zucker basically killed NBC years ago with all the pseudo-reality programming, and now they have nothing, no strong hourly dramatic series a la ER, to fall back on. It'll take years for them to rebuild their cred.
