I thought The Taste would crash and burn… color me surprised. I was especially impressed with the growth in the demo over the 2 hours. This certainly isn’t a break-out hit… but for filler during the dregs of winter – not too bad. Obviously having NCIS in repeats helped…
Go On and New Normal continue to tank (and that’s without addit’l comedy competition from ABC, and NCIS:LA in repeat mode). Still not sure why NBC was so quick to renew… esp. with the latter. Sure, ratings will pick-up when it follows The Voice, but at what cost? NBC could be using that hour better… with programming people actually like.
So it looks a few people may have dribbled out of Parenthood and over to Private Practice. Parenthood fans fretting a renewal may be alarmed, but i wouldn’t be.
As far as the cbs reruns, i’ve seen people post that Vegas repeats horribly. Actually, it does about 2/3 of its originals in demos and similar in TA, which is about par for the course for cbs dramas. Its problem is that the originals are so horrible the rerun numbers look bad.
