    Do You have star vs the forces of evil rating at 7:00am on Disney Xd?


  2. Destiny

    Just imagine if Agents of Shield was on Fridays at 9pm. It’d be Emerald City v Sleepy Hollow v Agents of Shield, the race to the bottom. Hawaii Five-0 would look Empire esq in comparison to how bad the other networks would do lol.


    • baja7475

      What does the first three have in common. They are not occupational dramas…… Why do non occupational dramas generally do so poorly with neilsen viewers??


      • FlopWatch

        That type of audience tends to be very niche, or at the very least watches where it doesn’t have nearly as much value (advertising), it’s a factor to why networks tend to go after procedurals, comedies, unscripted shows, etc.


      • CMM

        One and done stories. It’s that simple. Viewers can also relate to the characters as they are realistic unless, of course, you work in that occupation and find faults with what the show does.

        Non-occupational is often, if not always, unrealistic – sometimes ridiculous – and involve ongoing storylines you have to keep track of, etc.

        Of the three, SHIELD is actually a decent show that may have found its footing too little, too late, but it did not come without poor decisions pushing viewers away.

        The same is evident of Sleepy Hollow.

        I only saw two Emerald City episodes and, well, it’s not Wizard of Oz.

        I think I’ve watched enough TV to basically get why many shows fail in their execution, but for too many reasons to go into. I wish networks would get it. Executives need to be much more like publishing editors-in-chief when greenlighting shows and better overseeing the ones they do regardless of studio producers and creators.


      • Destiny

        You could say this for any show but every show out there will lose its audience, some quicker than others. If you look at say AoS and its numbers, you could easily predict a decline like this. Because at the end of the day, every show has a lifespan, be it 1 year, 4 years, 8 years or more. It’s not so much the quality of the show, people just lose interest. It’s rare these days for shows to hold onto 100 percent of their audience between seasons, you just have to be lucky enough to be stable and to be well rated to last a while.


    • FlopWatch

      H50 really thrived on Fridays.

      As for the flops, well, they can either clean house or get worse next season.


      • Destiny

        I know right. I think H50 will easily reach 10 seasons on CBS.


        • Monzo

          Wow, you’re very optimistic about H50, Destiny! I guess state Hawaii wants to keep the show for promotion, that’s a plus. IMO Blue Bloods depends much on Tom Selleck, so if he wants to leave or too much money BB could be cancelled sooner than H50.
