Looking forward to the Arrow on 10/10.
The CW sure could use a hit.

The Mindy Project though... wow... I couldn't stand it. I know how I give people a hard time for deciding a show is no good after only seeing 5 minutes of it but I really hated it 5 minutes in. She just wouldn't shut up! I didn't laugh once, not even a chuckle. I forced myself to watch the whole episode though so I wouldn't be a hypocrite. :D


I think I was one of those you said you couldn't understand the 5 minutes in and decide. :)

How does it feel to have wasted the extra 25 minutes watching the whole thing? :lol:

Life is to short to watch a dud. Not to mention I don't enough time to watch all the new shows If I give a loser of a show longer than it deserves.

You have to wonder who picked that bomb and why.

Some other losers Animal Hospital, I watched 5 minutes of that turkey.
666 Park Avenue, I watched the whole thing, won't watch another episode however.


Cheers

I think Last Resort would do better in a later time slot... maybe following Grey's Anatomy instead of in front of it...

but time will tell, and I hope that they do NOT cancel it..

At least I can say I gave it a fair shot. :)

I think someone at FOX thought she could write since she writes some stuff for The Office (US). She's one of the reasons I didn't like The Office (US).

I hope they don't either. I liked the Last Resort pilot better than the LOST pilot and LOST went on to be my favorite show of all time.

I suffered through the whole thing just to see more of that monkey. She deserves her own show, IMHO. :P

Crystal is a veteran of movies and TV with an enviable IMDB credit list that includes "The Hangover Part II," "Dr. Dolittle" and "Community," and "Animal Practice" is her first gig as a TV series regular. [more]

NBC gave full season orders for GO ON, REVOLUTION and NEW NORMAL. So those are safe for the rest of the year.

The Mob Doctor. Most critic reviews weren't very favorable, but it will be cancelled based on ratings alone.


Mob Doctor didn't even make it to my DVR, so I second this one.

I have to agree, if any show is going to cancelled because of ratings it's this one.

I can understand Go On and Revolution getting the full season order, but the New Normal certainly doesn't deserve it imo.

I'm not normally the touchy guy, but The New Normal (the mom at least) is so horribly over the top offensive that I can't believe the show's still on the air.

While those may be quality shows, their overall ratings are fairly low. The CW is now barely an asterisk on the ratings charts. Here are last season's ratings for those three shows:

Vampire Diaries #139 of 195 shows, 1.30 rating in the demo (CW's highest ranking show)
Supernatural #167 of 195 shows, 0.89 rating in the demo
Nikita #184, 0.61

I think that the CW would get more viewers if it was in HD in more markets. It is only SD here.

I like the New Normal. It catches me off guard all the time, which is rare for a comedy in this day and age where you can usually see the punchline coming well before it arrives. Haven't watched Go On since the initial Pilot after the Olympics and thought that was horrible. Still recording them and might give it another shot.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

My wife loves Matthew Perry, so we kept the show, in spite of the fact I wanted to delete it halfway through the first episode. Watched the 3d episode yesterday, and we actually laughed out loud a couple of times, so it might now be a keeper. :shrug:

That's for the overall season, how did those shows do week to week in the core demos? Again for one of the Big Three, they are drops in the bucket. But for the CW, they are gold and that's why I personally consider them to be hits.

I usually give new series at least 3 episodes, because Pilots are just setting the stage and usually don't get everything right, the 2nd episodes attempt to fix what didn't work in the Pilots, and the 3rd episodes are when the writers and casts are starting to understand the characters and the direction the show is going.

Go On was good this week, and this week's New Normal was the best to date, filling us in on the background of two significant characters and rounding them out more.

And I think this is the 4th episode of each?

What? Why? I'm loving it. A funny and different series. I didn't expect to like it from the silly previews, so I didn't even set up a series recording, but just caught up with three or four episodes via the NBC iPad app and quickly set up the DVR. Glad it's been picked up for a full season. Hopefully, it gets renewed as well.

Anybody have any thoughts on The Last Resort surviving? Saw ep 1 and thought it might be worth watching ep 2, maybe. Wish they had way more global politics/7 Days in May stuff (and missiles) and way less mindless blabbing and idiotic gunplay standoffs and fistfights on the generic, stereotype island.

In fact, a new version of Seven Days in May would make a fantastic series. The idea of the military/industrial/banking/energy complex taking over America isn't that farfetched anymore. K Street has way more clout than Pennsylvania Avenue.

That's the trouble with Last Resort. They kind of bury their lead under the weight of the douchebag island gangster guy and all this feminist palaver with the Admiral's daughter. They need to stick to the point: the country is in crisis and the more direct involvement these characters have with it the better. Unfortunately it seems to be headed for Gilligan's Island territory.

I did find myself skipping over several minutes of Last Resort this week, don't care about one character telling the other how they need to stop drinking or how a family member feels. I think I skipped the last 5 minutes altogether. The Stateside part of the story would be great to get into more but I doubt they will, guess I still have Homeland for that kind of stuff.

Just looked Seven Days in May up, going to try and find it and watch it, never heard of it before looks like it should be good.
