How I Met Your Mother was a big winner this week. Too bad it wasn't that great of an episode.

Heroes has got to be a goner for season 4. Those people who left are not coming back.

Re: TV Ratings (Monday 3rd March)

Heroes has really slipped. But the show has gone so far downhill in quality, I'm not surprised. It's too bad, given the potential this show had in its first season. The audience was there for it, too--but repetition of both storylines and character arcs really killed it.

Glad to see 24 doing fairly well. It's definitely an aging show--but its audience is still there.

Heroes is a sinking ship and it's taking Chuck and Medium down with it.

Chuck was doing well, and building every week, and then that break a couple weeks ago screwed it up.

Yeah pretty much. Every time that happens they take a dive. Considering that they didn't start to develop a following until this season, because the writers strike killed their first season, and considering they're going up against the stiffest competition on TV right now, I'd say they're doing about as well as anyone could given their situation. Having to act as lead in to Heroes doesn't help their situation though. A move to another night would do wonders imo.

Heroes last week did even worse so at least it went up, it was 6.5 or something. It was a series low.

6.95 million...season 4 will be the last at this rate.

Re: TV Ratings (Monday 3rd March)

Every show I follow seems to be sharply dropping in ratings this year (Heroes, 24, Lost, CSI, etc). Is there a single show that is RISING in the ratings this year? Well I think Mother & Big Bang went up. Isn't this just an artifact of everyone switching to TIVO/downloading?

At this rate this season should be the last.

Probably, yeah. But at least Bryan Fuller will have a year to get the show whipped back into some kind of shape and give us something to remember it by besides, "thank God that crap is gone."

Who knows what NBC will have planned after that. NBC is an even bigger sinking ship than Heroes, so it's all relative.

The ever-savvy Review/Cancel Index:

Heroes is way down from the heights of its earlier seasons. Heck, it’s way down from earlier this season. Fans are worried that the shows big budget might cause it to be canceled. I don’t buy it. I think NBC’s scripted line up is just in such utter shambles that NBC will somehow work out the numbers to bring Heroes back. It might come back with a big budget cut, and may not look like the current show, but I think it will be back.
Scuttlebutt has it that Heroes is firing its junior writers. Maybe it should fire all its writers. But it's a good sign for budgetary restraint either way.

It's an artifact of competition with cable. But no, I can't think of any shows that are doing better than treading water for their lives.
A little over a generation ago, the three commercial broadcast networks controlled over 90% of the primetime television audience. Today, the share of the 11 different commercial broadcast networks is less than 40% and falling.

Big Bang Theory keeps gaining in the ratings (well, this particular week is a bit of an exception to that).

Downloading has barely any impact on ratings at all, if any. It's still a relatively small number who download in the US (relative to the millions who watch via traditional means), and people who are so into a show that they're going to bother to download are probably going to try to catch it on their TV as well if they're a Nielsen household.
