And the rerun of Big Bang Theory will probably get higher ratings than the other sitcoms on CBS that night. Kinda pathetic for CBS.


Same thing happened with House. Fox had nothing better to show and House would fill in and get 4-6 million viewers in reruns on a Friday.

NBC Cancels Ironside, Welcome to the Family

Ironside looked like it was DOA as soon as the ads for it started so no surprise here.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

No surprises there. What did Ironside really have to set it apart from all the other cop shows except for the fact that he's in a wheel chair? I know it was a remake from the show with Raymond Burr, but I can't imagine that would really attract any viewers to the new show.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

But I had been waiting for the longest time for Spencer Grammer to make it back on TV.

The "can I punch you in the balls" line was great on Welcome to the Family.

It was a hell of lot better thought out that the Michael J Fox Show.

No wonder they, all of them really, have so much contempt for us if Under the Dome is what we want.

I wonder if they're keeping it around for now because they fear looking like assholes if they cancel the show starring the guy with Parkinson's disease.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

It doesn't matter how shit it is if the ratings are good.

Creative failure can still translate into ratings bonanza... Look at Under the Dome.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Benefiting from a massive Big Bang Theory lead-in, ad-agency comedy The Crazy Ones had 15.6 million viewers and a 4.0 rating among adults 18-49 at 9 p.m. In the same time slot, family sitcom The Michael J. Fox Show had only 7.2 million viewers and a 2.1 demo rating, on par with last fall’s final season premiere of The Office.
Meh. 4 weeks later, any better?

Is that from it's debut? Because when it debuted it was on right after 'Parks and Rec" but after that it had to contend with being on after "Welcome to the Family" which we all know is now cancelled.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

That was day one. I'm not used to looking for Neilson Ratings, and some side by side graphs would have been fantastic, but if they exist I have no idea where they are. Another article google found me that said that the MIchael J Fox Show was "Most Improved" which probably means that their numbers went from shitty to okay... But is "Okay" really good enough?

Is Michael working for scale until the show can stand on it's own two feet?

What about Anne, her name isn't on the mast head but she's probably still in shock from Saved being whacked after 7 episodes even if she is a c-list movie actress slumming it?

Oh, didn't know that. The commenters at The A.V. Club practically loathe it.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

The consensus that I have observed in this thread (which is probably inaccurate.).

There was a great line in the Neighbours last week... Debbie weaver goes to a black female hair salon with Jackie Joiner Cursey, where they give Debbie cornrows with beads. Really tight ones. Afterwards she's looking in the mirror, not quite sure what to make of her new Stevie Wonder like apperance, stroking her hair, when she gasps "Oh my god... [mock horror]I look like Predator[/mock horror]... HA (snort!)... (epiphany) ...[glee]Alien vs. Predator[/glee]. (smirk.)."

All the new shows suck.
