5/4 Friday What You Should Watch

4 May

Fringe has two episodes left this season, that news is easier to swallow now that I know they have renewed it for a 5th season. Granted it’s only 13 episodes and it is the final. But at least they have an opportunity to give the show and the fans a proper ending.

Also new tonight Supernatural, I stopped watching for a season or two when they did that whole Dean/Satan storyline, but the last few weeks with Dick Roman and Bobby’s ghost have been really good.  The announced a new EP for next season, so even though they haven’t officially announced it has been renewed I can’t imagine they would cancel it now.

TV News Round Up, Ratings, Grimm, Fringe Boss talks cancel and more

22 Nov

First Monday Night Ratings

Thanks to TV By The Numbers for the numbers

CBS won the night even though all it’s shows dropped compared with last week.  People could be getting ready for the holiday and have less time for TV this week.

Here is a breakdown

Top Show of the night, 2 and a Half Men 5.2 rating and a 13 share, It wasn’t as funny as last week, but still a good outing.

Second highest rated: 2 Broke Girls 4.4 rating and a 11 share.  Alot of gross out humor, used tights, cum jokes and vibrators. I guess nothing says Thanksgiving like skank humor.

How about the big twist on How I Met Your Mother. Google it I am not going to spoil it.

House stayed even, so did Hart of Dixie, Castle returned strong but their numbers could be adjusted down for Monday Night Football.

Full numbers and analysis here TV By The Numbers

TV Line has a very interesting article about the fate of my Fringe, what is really important to note about this article, is it covers 7+DVR ratings and how those numbers are calculated into a shows overall performance.

7+DVR are the number of people who tape a show and watch it later, Fringe has alot of those, it was those numbers that saved it last year. The problem is advertisers don’t like those people because they are skipping the commercials.

Interesting reading that adds a whole new demension to the ratings game, TVLine

Grimm got a full season order, no surprise, it’s numbers have been steady TVLine

And another sign that General Hospital really is going to get canclled next September, Kimber McCullough has announced she is leaving the show. Kimberly orginated the role of Robin Scorpio and has been with thw show since 1985. Earlier this month Johnathan Jackson (Lucky Spencer) announced he was leaving.  Look for more exits over the next few months.  Brian Frons ruined ABC daytime.  TVLine
