Ratings: Showing Your Age

BGC12

Yes I put the numbers in the comments last week but now you get to recognize them in their full glory. However it is far from the only show under a million viewers on this list and I will say 4 VH1 shows got even lower ratings than Bad Girls Club: Chicago.

The CW 2014-2015 Schedule

flash1f-1-web

Since its inception, The CW has been the little brother to the big 4 broadcast networks. They have never had a major hit show to give them equal footing and for a time it appeared that not much was working out for them. A couple of years ago they finally decided to wean themselves off of girly teen dramas and since then it has been working out for them with marginal success. This year is no different as their schedule has a heavily supernatural theme to it but their success the past couple of years left the network with very few holes to fill and as a result there are only 4 new shows due next season.

CBS 2014-2015 Schedule

I think I said something like this last year but CBS is often seen as the beacon on stability. They have a very tight schedule and it is not often that major changes are made to it. Last year forced them into a position they have rarely been in where they had to deal with their rookie dramas being complete flops and all of their comedies (not including The Big Bang Theory) looking more vulnerable than ever. As a result they had no backups in reserve when the failures came rolling in early and they were left with glaring holes all season long. This year CBS has decided to go all-in with dramas while they are trimming the fat on their comedies. They are also beefing up their sports slate with a brief run of Thursday Night Football (Yes I had to use a photo of one of their current shows. CBS is very picky about their photos and I have no choice but to respect that).

once-upon-time_s3_finale

This week is like the equivalent of final exams and freshman orientation all rolled up into one. For you fans of Once Upon a Time, Resurrection, Nashville and Revenge, take solace in knowing that your show will be on at the same day and time next season. Scandal fans need to prepare themselves to be in front of the TV an hour earlier than usual. Next week the summer season officially begins and things will get very quiet and very boring for the broadcast networks.
