  1. Amaury

    Bad ratings for Paradise Run again. 1.03M compared to 1.36M on January 9 last year. But, again, at least it’s staying consistent. Even if it’s on the bad side, that’s a good thing, right?


    • Amaury

      Also, I like how everything came back strong for ABC and then returned to their lower levels. For example, The Middle went from 1.5/6.36M last week to 1.3/5.42M this week. That’s roughly a 13%/15% drop. Number-wise, that’s a loss of 0.02/0.94M.


      • Destiny

        I could see The Middle dropping further in Spring, but I do hope it gets a strong finish. I think the numbers this season reflect the general state of ABCs sitcoms.


        • FlopWatch

          I think ABC needs to be careful with their comedy slate especially with Middle ending, MF possibly close to ending, Mayor failing, already cutting down an hour only to have it backfire miserably on them, etc.


      • FlopWatch

        Not that many shows came back strong to begin with, The Middle was one of the few, along with Shark Tank/AFHV tbh.


  2. Destiny

    I’m sad for Major Crimes as its the end of an era started by The Closer. Who knows what the future will bring, but one would hope show number three becomes a thing in the future. If not, RIP.


    • Amaury

      Is 0.30/2.25M bad for that network?


      • Destiny

        If TNT didn’t care about appealing to younger viewers like they do with Animal Kingdom & Claws, these numbers would be fine. The shows biggest failing is that what audience it has is too old for a network looking to get more younger viewers aboard with its shows. Combine that with the show being a sixth season show anyway which isn’t cheap.


        • Shan

          Which is why low rating channels should start merging TNT/TBS, USA/Syfy, MTV/VH1, Spike/TVLAND and move to an advertising supported on-demand model before cable tv kills itself with dropping subscribers.


          • Russell

            I think low-rated, similar channels should merge. For example, Syfy/TNT, POP/TVLand, Spike/Comedy Central or TruTV could merge. MTV/VH1 would probably do well in a merger.


          • baja7475

            Most on-demand cable shows (except pemiums) have advertising, just like their websites. THe problem with the current rating system, it’s not counting any of that. If it is, it’s not on here.


        • Jon Baime

          The cut off might be something like a .60 0.3 just won’t cut it.


        • Amaury

          Ah.

          Well, I’ll tell you one thing. I would die from happiness if something on Nickelodeon or Disney Channel got 2.25M right now.


  3. MEMES4LIFE

    Just upgrade to 200 originals already
