Yeah, when you don't control the process, you just sorta have to speculate on what will still be there next week. We both have Elementary on our "Keepers" list, so maybe it'll have a chance. But, as you say, it also "...has a good chance of being cancelled".

"Elementary" had decent ratings... so it stands a good chance. I like JLM (still think it's funny he was married to Angelina Jolie), so that's good. It was a lot better than I expected.

"Made In Jersey" will most likely be cancelled shortly. The dialogue needed a lot of work, but I thought it had a LOT of charm. Sadly, a lot of the dialogue that needed work was used in the commercials, so that probably turned a lot of people off...

Wow, learn something new every day - didn't realize Jonny was connected to Angelina!

I haven't watched "...Jersey" ... something about the name of it sorta makes me cringe.

Like most folks here, I'm a bit jaded with all the network hype about their line-ups. History has a way of repeatedly proving them all collectively wrong. My defense mechanism (admitedly, with some Elementary exceptions) is to avoid them until the 2nd or 3rd season - once all the hoopla settles down and I see how they're really doing.

I'm sometimes tempted to take peek at on or two of them (Go On, Last Resort), but that usually ends badly.

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.

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.

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.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

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

It's not on the air in all markets.

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