For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • Wow, NBC got hammered last night!

    Has a Big 3 network ever been in this bad a shape, or does the pendulum always swing, such that every network has their turn to shine, suck, or fall somewhere in between? Maybe getting clobbered this bad will make them try harder and NBC will be on an upswing soon.

  • BizarroP

    wow NBC’s numbers are p-a-t-h-e-t-i-c! Heroes is an embarrassment

  • HUDDYSUX

    After another ridiculous Huddy-centric episode that crossed way too many lines (and the cruel way they let Jennifer Morrison go) House has lost almost 1.2 million viewers. And it makes me happy. TPTB have been told time and again that they are making a huge mistake with the horrendously long, drawn out, and ill-conceived Huddy arc, but they insist that they know what’s best for us. They have also seriously underestimated the number of people that liked Cameron (and seriously OVER estimated the number of people that like 13).

    What’s best for us is getting back to the show that hooked us all in the first place. We want the intelligent, witty, slightly off center medical procedural back. We want House back. We want clinic patients back. We want POTWs that we CARE about back.

    We do NOT want the soap opera that it has become. Most of us don’t give a rat’s behind about Huddy, and even less so for Foreteen.

    The only people watching now are tweenaged Huddy fangirls. But hey, if that’s the demographic theyre looking for, good on em.

    COME ON, TPTB!! WAKE UP. STOP LISTENING AND PANDERING TO THE FANGIRLS. THEY ARE A VERY SMALL MINORITY IN YOUR VIEWERSHIP. IF YOU DON’T SMARTEN UP SOON, YOU WILL LOSE A LOT MORE VIEWERS.

    Morons.

  • Jody

    The Big Bang Theory takes down 2.5 Men in the top comedy spot! Finally! Now will the Emmy’s take notice?

  • Linda B.

    Wow, Trauma did better than Heroes? I think Heroes has its days numbered.

  • John

    I think your “Castle” 18-49 number is wrong.

  • Marcus

    TBBT is doing great and it’s well deserved! 🙂

  • John,
    Thanks for the heads up.

    Jody, Marcus,
    TWO AND A HALF MEN is no longer CBS’ top rated comedy… something really thankful to be about this Thanksgiving!

  • HuddySux, I agree with you — mostly. I also don’t buy the potential relationship between House & Huddy. I’d like to see more of the kinder, gentler House we began to see near the end of the series premiere, but those two still aren’t right as a couple, and House hasn’t come far enough to be a father figure to Cuddy’s baby.

    I also hate to see Cameron go. I’d much rather she have stayed than Chase.

    However, I’m also one of the few people who like 13 & Taub and didn’t mind the 13 & Foreman relationship. I also think the team would be interesting with two women at once instead of only one, another reason Chase should’ve been written out instead of Cameron.
