Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

The fact that TVD is matching Last Resort spells doom for the latter.

Arrow seems to be doing quite well. I wonder what kind of dropoff it'll get.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

Based off all the ratings I've seen in the past few weeks, CBS is facing an 18-49 demo collaspe which along with the struggle FOX is having to replace its past shows and the hole NBC has been in for the past few years I wonder if theres room for so many networks with cable and other sources chipping away at them.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

Not really accurate:

This week, not including Sunday:

1. ABC Modern Family 4.9 12.226/ 4.7 12.03
2. NBC The Voice (8-10PM) 4.7 12.577/ 4.4 11.93
3. CBS The Big Bang Theory 4.2 13.767
4. CBS 2 Broke Girls 3.7 10.124
5. CBS Two and a Half Men 3.4 11.74
6. FOX The X Factor (8-10PM) 3.4 9.357
7. CBS NCIS 3.3 18.09
8. CBS How I Met Your Mother 3.2 8.139
10. CBS Mike & Molly 3.1 9.417
11. NBC Revolution 3.1 8.206
12. CBS Criminal Minds 3 11.352
13. FOX The X Factor 2.9 8.25
14. CBS NCIS: Los Angeles 2.9 15.1
15. ABC Nashville (Series Premiere) 2.8 8.978
16. NBC Go On 2.8 6.95
17. FOX New Girl 2.7 4.99
18. CBS CSI 2.6 10.584
19. CBS Survivor: Philippines 2.6 9.576
20. ABC The Middle 2.4 7.807

CBS has 1/2 of the top 20 programs and Elementary & Person of Interest were pre-empted. NBC is actually making huge strides with The Voice, Revolution, and Go On.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

Revolution and Go On will continue to slip over the season but its CBS I was mainly focusing on. ..

While TBBT is no doubt very very safe and even Two & Half Men, the latter is a mere shadow of it past self and erosion will occur from every year on from now IMO. Hawaii Five-O can't break past a 2.0 demo and The Mentalist (in a bad time slot) has even worser problems. The Good Wife (which should be in the 10pm slot) scored recently a 1.7 in the demo. Vegas is on the way to being cancelled by May and Elementary start has been lackluster too. Mike & Molly will never be the smash hit CBS wants it to be but will easily last 5 years.

All am saying is CBS weathered the issues networks were facing quite well but now even they are seeing worrying erosion in yearly auduences.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

The collapse that CBS is seeing has been a long time coming. If your audience is aging outside the target demo, sooner or later the strategy of getting a mass audience to compensate is not going to work. They should have been thinking ahead long before now, figuring out how to shift into a new audience, instead of producing more cop shows and sitcoms.

FOX Is also in trouble but in their case, they did it to themselves with a new slate of shows even worse than their competitors. Where was their Last Resort or Revolution type attention grabbing action show for their male audience?

More on the topic here.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

TV just has gotten progressively worse over the last decade IMO. I used to not have a problem finding several consistently good shows--in recent years it has been a struggle just to find something halfway passable.

Networks just dont have the kind of writers they used to have. Instead of fresh storytelling, good casting and compelling characters we are treated to a bunch of stale recycled stories I've seen done better a million times before(just about any CBS series. cop/hospital/legal drama) OR we get some overly ambitious epic mystery drama that quickly falls to pieces with bland characters or worse yet bland plot devices(hello V, FF, Invasion, Surface, Alcatraz, The Event, Revolution, Last Resort, Happy Town, Heroes to name a few). And even the "better" series can only muster maybe about one decent season before imploding(Heroes, BSG, Prison Break)--gone are the days of a series putting out at least 4 or 5 good years of consistently quality episodes.

And cable tv is just as bad. SyFy, A&E, History etc have strayed from their intial purpose and have started to become more and more full of crap.

Honestly I've considered dropping cable/Dish and just watching older series on Netflix--even if I've seen them a thousand times before--they are much better written than the crap today that relies on sloppy writing, shallow characters, juvenile humor, flashy effects and ADHD pacing.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

This CBS stuff is just unfounded. They're still going to come out a main competitor. Their new shows are doing strong in the demo outside of Made in Jersey. Just because you don't like cop shows doesn't mean that CBS is bleeding viewers. Show me the facts other than some people quit watching Hawaii Five-0.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

CBS stuff isn't unfounded because TV audiences across the networks are down in general from 5-10 years ago. CBS ratings were much bigger 2 years ago then they were today. Older ones are still there but the key 18-49 demo based upon the current TV model is leaving.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

Here's the article I was looking for with the handy chart showing how bad things are, especially for FOX and CBS.

If that link is blocked for you with a paywall, try going here and clicking directly to it, it's the third link down.

Basically, FOX and CBS are both down about 25%, which is significant enough to get the business press talking about it.

Television viewing of both cable and broadcast networks among adults under age 50 fell for the first two weeks of the new fall season, Nielsen data show, a much weaker start than the industry experienced last year.

The major broadcast networks lost an average of 15% of their viewers in the 18-49 demographic compared with the first two weeks of last season. In that same group, viewership of ad-supported cable channels dropped 1%, according to Nielsen.

The figures show less of a decline among people over 50, indicating that overall television audiences are getting older. Among all adults, the declines at broadcast networks were 11% while cable's overall audience rose 4%.
Older ones are still there but the key 18-49 demo based upon the current TV model is leaving.
Right, it doesn't matter if CBS is hanging onto 50+ if the advertisers won't pay for them.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

And yet another piece of the puzzle: DVR numbers are in!

And the impact of time shifting is bigger than ever, especially for some shows like Grimm. The question I always have is, how much do advertisers count time shifting when it comes to paying up? The fates of 666 Park Ave and Last Resort, which shold be cancellation bait without timeshifting, may be revealing. If either or both stave off cancellation, then time shifting counts for quite a bit. If only 666 Park Ave gets renewed, that may be a budget issue.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

CBS also has the issue of having their aging hit shows that with age people leave. Just because it's a top show this year doesn't mean audiences will be with it in a year or so when the actors of the show are leave. Not every show is as stupid as 2.5 "Men" with it's cast changing.

And both 666 Park Ave and Last Resort will never get a 2nd season, LR probably won't get a back 9 and 666 might, but I think it's pretty screwed unless it turns into this year's Revenge with word of mouth.

Re: TV Ratings, Oct 8-14

So are you guys advocating that CBS cancel NCIS, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, CSI etc. because they're getting up there in seasons and losing a few viewers? I'd rather have something I know is going to still resonate with viewers and get a high demo than cancel everything and roll the dice.
