Put me down for $5 on "How to Be A Gentleman." Seems like a 2 1/2 Men ripoff.
I watched 2 broke girls last night and while amusing at times, don't think it will last more than a season.
I agree with the others, I think Pan Am and Playboy club will go quickly.
Yes as it has a very strong lead-in. BBT struggled at first, but given time it has grown into a great show.
HIMYM is it's lead-in...
That's the one I'm hoping for.
NBC affiliate in these parts refuses to air it, so we (the CBS Affiliate) made a deal with NBC to air it on our subchannel.
Many hoops to jump through to get it on our air, including the covering of NBC promos within the show since they are a "competitor".
It will make Monday's a lot less stressfull as soon as it goes away.
HIMYM is a very successful show. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_I_Met_Your_Mother#Nielsen_ratings
Last night it did very well:
I'm aware of that... I've seen every episode (other than last night's... I'll watch them tomorrow) and own S4 on Blu-ray.
He was referring to (I'm assuming) "The Big Bang Theory." It's the lead-in to "How To Be A Gentleman" which I don't think will make it that long.
:lol: I think he's reaffirming your idea of 2 Broke Girls being successful because HIMYM is it's lead in. And how TBBT was huge at first, but caught on because of it's lead in.
It all makes sense now... I don't know why I didn't get that from his post.
I agree. BBT is good, but it doesn't have that whole comedy night feel that Monday does. BBT couldn't save !@#$ My Dad Says and I thought it was funny but miscast.
HTBAG won't make it to November.
I hear the numbers for Playboy Club were disastrous last night. I'm not sure why NBC decided to open the show on a night with so many major event shows on.
5 million viewers...only 7-8 million behind Hawaii 5-0 & Castle. :lol::lol:
TBBT is my favorite comedy hands down... I start laughing at the very start, and I don't stop until after the credits. !@#$ My Dad Says was funny, and I watched the whole season, but it lacked that special something.
HTBAG not only doesn't have that special something (or William Shatner), it doesn't have anything going for it.
2BG had it's hits and misses last night. It got off to a good start ratings rise due to "Two And A Half Men," but next week should see a fairly stiff drop. If it only gets better, I think most of next week's viewers will continue to tune in. If it gets worse, I feel it will air it's complete order, but it won't be back.
I like the premise, and I think it has potential, so I'm rooting for it.
Surprisingly there are quite a few NBC affiliates who won't air the show. That won't help numbers at all. That's the main reason I'm saying it will be the first cancellation. You can't compete with others if you're not shown on all outlets that they are.
Yup, stick a fork in it.
Playboy club would be much better suited on one of the sister channels, either USA or TNT. The prudish nature of some areas resulting the it not being shown is a definate handicap.
I can't believe they took a chance on Free Agent after the Paul Reiser debacle last year. Based on what I saw, I'd be surprised if many folks tune in tomorrow night.
We weren't bowled over by either Up All Night or 2 Broke Girls, but we're not willing to write them off just yet.
Keep in mind that:
NBC cleverly dumped "Chase" which did 20% better last year.
Folks at Comcast who are stuck with this lemon network in the NBCU majority share purchase last year must be unhappy with whoever made this choice.
NBC is so bad at this I'm starting to feel sorry for them.:sure:
By the way, my wife and I liked "2 Broke Girls" much to our surprise. It will not be moved our "wait-to-see-if-it's-canceled" EHD like "Playboy Club."
The Playboy Club only had 5 million viewers, making it the 2ned worse pilot from NBC since Cruso
