    The Brave was dead before this week, now it’s Zombified. NBC could have aired any one of their hit dramas and got much higher numbers. Even Blindspot or The Blacklist would have done better there.


    • FlopWatch

      They really should’ve cut down the episode orders, if your series is either burning off or capped, the better option would be over and done with before the new year instead of dragging it out to January.


      • Destiny

        I agree but I don’t think NBC has ever done that for flops airing after The Voice. I know they cut Revolution by one episode for scheduling reasons, but that did really well during its first season. I think it’s a case of “We own it, so we may as well air it”. Look at CBS with Wisdom, or ABC with some of its flops.


        • Destiny

          Correction, Wisdom was a co production.


        • FlopWatch

          Agreed, but it’s better than dragging it out into January either way especially if it comes out this low.


          • Destiny

            I think it’s just keeping the slot warm before the Olympics. NBC kinda did react by not giving it a back nine order and keeping it with The Voice. They did confirm its death by bringing out the excuse that they had always intended it to be 13 episodes, which of course is just nonsense.


          • FlopWatch

            Yeah, it got capped, but it does make it even easier to replace it like they already did for midseason.


  2. Amaury

    At least Paradise Run is being fairly consistent, I guess, even if it’s on the bad side.


  3. Destiny

    Game of Games renewed by NBC. Well deserved for such a hit series.
