LMS and Malibu Country keep falling which is not good. Its also surprising it fell from LMS, and now, its 1 point below its premiere. I was sort of hoping these two shows could stabilize in the mid to high 1′s territory, but they keep falling. I think ABC should put the idea of moving Shark Tank on hold for now. Unfortunately, what ever they will put at 8pm on Thursday’s will fail. Wipeout does fine there and is very cheap.
Viewers are bailing on LMS because of the changes from what I have read. Recast and rewrote the oldest daughters whole storyline, personality included. Supposedly it is a little more serious now, I have no clue if that is true as I don’t watch it.
Then you have the group that DVR’s it and watches it when they have time on Saturday or Sunday

This is why Shark Tank should have remained at 8pm.
I completely agree. Shark Tank should have never moved. 9 PM was the timeslot that ABC had to work on and fix.
However, I still think that TGIF in general was just a poorly timed idea that wasn’t needed. Last Man Standing and Malibu Country needs to move off Fridays and on to another night. 20/20 specials and Primetime: What Would You Do? can fill in at 9 PM (although ABC still has to look for more 9 PM options).

Grimm has deflated slightly since Shark Tank became its new competition, which is ABC’s goal. I doubt LMS and Malibu would’ve done that.
It’s possible that CBS and ABC moving their programming could have impacted Grimm, but I think that the bigger issue is that NBC hasn’t put anything original at 8 PM. Repeats and specials have varied in the ratings which hasn’t helped Grimm.
