1.4 (1.5) (1.5) (1.2) (1.1) (1.6) (1.2) (1.3) (1.1) 20/20
1.3 (1.4) (1.4) (1.1) (1.2) (---) (---) (0.8) (0.9) AFH Videos
1.3 (1.7) (1.4) (1.5) (1.6) (1.9) (2.3) (0.6) (---) Revenge
1.2 (1.1) (1.4) (1.2) (1.3) (1.4) (1.4) (2.3) (---) Trophy Wife
1.0 (1.0) (0.7) (1.0) (0.9) (1.0) (1.0) (1.2) (0.5) The Neighbors
0.9 (0.9) (---) (1.1) (1.2) (1.7) (---) (---) (---) Once/Wonderland
0.8 (1.0) (0.9) (0.9) (0.8) (1.1) (1.5) (---) (---) Betrayal
--- (---) (---) (---) (---) (---) (0.7) (1.3) (---) Lucky 7

“Agents of SHIELD” is still falling but remains among ABC’s top five shows and is easily the netork’s top new hourlong – its competition being the cancelled “Lucky 7” and the soon-to-be-cancelled “Once Upon A Time In Wonderland” and “Betrayal.”

“Revenge,” with a 1.3 last Sunday, looks weak.

On the comedy side, “Super Fun Night” is not retaining enough “Modern Family” audience, just as the cancelled “Back in the Game” wasn’t hanging on to enough “Middle” fans.

Were I ABC, I’d movie “Trophy Wife,” its funniest new comedy to replace “Super Fun Night” in the post-“Modern” slot. It’s the only chance “Trophy” has for a second season.

 

NBC
(Adults 18-49; repeats in gray; earlier weeks in parentheses)
3.8 (3.6) (4.3) (4.3) (4.5) (4.6) (4.7) (5.1) (---) The Voice (Mo)

1.1 (---) (---) (---) (1.3) (1.2) (1.2) (1.3) (---) Parks and Recreation
1.1 (1.1) (---) (---) (---) (---) (---) (---) (---) Dateline (We)
1.0 (---) (1.3) (1.3) (1.2) (1.3) (1.3) (1.1) (1.4) Dateline (Fr)
0.9 (1.3) (1.8) (---) (---) (---) (---) (---) (---) Dracula
0.9 (1.0) (1.1) (1.2) (1.2) (1.2) (1.7) (2.2) (---) Michael J. Fox Show
0.9 (1.4) (1.1) (1.1) (1.1) (1.0) (1.4) (---) (---) Sean Saves The World
--- (---) (---) (---) (0.9) (0.8) (1.1) (---) (---) Welcome To/Family
--- (---) (---) (0.8) (1.0) (1.1) (1.3) (---) (---) Ironside

“Parks and Recreation” is doing horribly but is still NBC’s #1 sitcom

“Revolution,” amazingly, is now likely to hang on another season! “Parenthood” too, I reckon.

“Sean Saves The World” and “The Michael J. Fox Show” are now getting the same ratings “Welcome To The Family” got when it was cancelled.

Blah “Dracula” is dead.

Even repeats of SNL beat most of NBC’s primetime (and all late-night) series.

 

Fox
(Adults 18-49; repeats in gray; earlier weeks in parentheses)
2.6 (2.5) (---) (1.0) (2.7) (2.8) (3.0) (3.1) (3.5) Sleepy Hollow
2.0 (2.0) (---) (2.2) (2.0) (2.1) (2.2) (1.9) (2.3) Bones
2.0 (2.5) (---) (1.1) (---) (2.5) (2.6) (1.2) (1.5) Family Guy
1.8 (2.4) (---) (1.3) (---) (3.0) (2.9) (1.3) (1.2) The Simpsons
1.7 (2.0) (---) (1.8) (1.8) (2.1) (1.9) (2.1) (2.9) New Girl
1.7 (1.5) (---) (---) (---) (2.2) (2.4) (2.5) (2.2) X Factor (We)
1.6 (1.9) (---) (1.1) (---) (2.1) (2.1) (1.1) (0.6) American Dad
1.5 (1.8) (---) (0.5) (---) (1.9) (2.2) (1.2) (1.0) Bob’s Burgers
1.5 (1.3) (1.4) (1.3) (1.4) (1.3) (1.6) (---) (---) MasterChef Jr
1.4 (1.6) (---) (1.6) (1.5) (1.5) (1.4) (1.8) (2.6) Brooklyn Nine-Nine
1.4 (1.5) (0.6) (---) (---) (2.9) (1.6) (2.0) (---) Glee
1.4 (1.5) (---) (1.3) (1.4) (1.4) (1.5) (1.5) (1.9) Mindy Project
1.3 (1.2) (0.8) (---) (---) (2.0) (2.0) (2.1) (2.0) X Factor (Th)
1.2 (1.4) (---) (1.4) (1.5) (1.3) (1.3) (1.5) (2.2) Dads

“Dads” gets to finish out a full season, but its prospects for a second season seem as unlikely as those for Seth MacFarlane’s last live-action sitcom, “The Winner.”

The big shock here is the collapse of “X Factor”; its Thursday edition is pulling “Dads”-size ratings.

How wise was it for Fox to move “Bones,” one of its top series, to the Friday Death Slot? Preliminary ratings for the first Friday “Bones” was a 1.2; the final score becomes available Monday.

“Mindy Project” looks weaker than ever. “Brooklyn Nine Nine” deserves to follow “New Girl,” not “Dads.”

“Glee” hit an all-time low last week, but Fox renewed it for next season (now earmarked as its last) before the current season began.

Footnote: “Raising Hope” returned Friday with a preliminary rating of 0.7. If that holds when the final ratings are announced Monday, “Raising” ties the long-cancelled “Lucky 7” as the lowest-rated show on the Big Four.

1.1 (1.1) (1.2) (1.2) (1.2) (1.2) (1.5) (1.8) (---) Hostages

It looks like CBS is going to air all 15 episodes of “Hostages” before substituting “Intelligence” (“Intelligence” is kind of like “Chuck” without the Buy More).

CBS’ promos for “The Mentalist” suggest that show is going off the air after this season.

“The Good Wife” just hit a season high thanks to a CBS football overrun, but it’ll be back to cancellation bait after this Sunday.

0.3 (0.3) (0.3) (---) (---) (---) (---) (---) (---) Carrie Diaries

“Beauty and the Beast” and “Carrie Diaries” are doing horribly, but the CW hates to cancel shows unless they’re named “Veronica Mars.”

“Vampire Diaries” tied “The X Factor” and beat “Parks and Recreation” and “Once Upon A Time In Wonderland” last Thursday. (The only thing “Vampire” didn’t beat in its timeslot was “Big Bang Theory,” which garnered a 5.2, quadruple the “Vampire” demo.)
