This isn't exactly my favorite show, but I think it's ok. (Though I would rather watch "Criminal Minds" instead).
At this point, the only reason I'm watching "The Following" is that it's on just right before "Hawaii Five-0" on Mondays. I'm usually not doing much else on a Monday evening.
This arrangement is sorta similar to when "Simon & Simon" was on immediately after "Magnum PI" back in the mid 1980's. If "Simon & Simon" was on a different evening and/or time, I probably wouldn't have watched "Simon & Simon" at all in the first place.
If either "The Following" or "Hawaii Five-0" were on different evenings and/or times, then I probably wouldn't be watching "The Following" at all.
