THE RUNDOWN: Thursday, April 24, Friday, April 25, & Saturday, April 26

I will be out of town for a couple days but when I get back on Saturday, I will have reviews of Bad Teacher and Black Box!

THURSDAY
Thursday night has two very late-in-the-season series premieres. Black Box is a new drama that's taking Scandal's spot on ABC for a couple weeks, but don't expect it to do anything close to Scandal numbers. Things could go better on CBS where Bad Teacher could get a solid sampling, most likely better than recent numbers for The Crazy Ones. Elsewhere, NBC has the season finale of Parks and Recreation with a one hour episode.

ABC 
8:00 Jimmy Kimmel Live: Behind the Scandalabra (SPECIAL - REPEAT)
9:00 Grey's Anatomy #217 "Change of Heart"
10:00 Black Box #1 "Kiss the Sky" (SERIES PREMIERE)
Prediction: Grey's - 8.2 million, 2.5/Black Box - 6.8 million, 1.8

CBS 
8:00 The Big Bang Theory #156 "The Anything Can Happen Recurrence"
8:30 The Millers #20 "Tomlandia"
9:00 Two and a Half Men #244 "Lotta Delis in Little Armenia"
9:30 Bad Teacher #1 "Pilot" (SERIES PREMIERE)
10:00 Elementary #45 "The Man with the Twisted Lips"
Prediction: Big Bang - 16.8 million, 4.7/Millers - 10.7 million, 2.6/Men - 9.8 million, 2.5/Bad Teacher - 8.5 million, 2.2/Elementary - 8.1 million, 1.8

NBC
8:00 Parks and Recreation #111/112 "Moving Up" (Season Finale)

Prediction: Parks - 2.9 million, 1.1

FOX 
8:00 Hell's Kitchen
9:00 American Idol
9:30 Surviving Jack #5 "Something to Talk About"
Prediction: Kitchen - 4.8 million, 1.6/Idol - 7.6 million, 1.7/Jack - 4.2 million, 1.0

FRIDAY
Friday night has the season finale of Last Man Standing among lots of other new programming. I think it'll be a pretty normal Friday.

ABC
8:00 Last Man Standing #64 "Mutton Busting" (Season Finale)
8:30 Last Man Standing #58 "Stud Muffin" (REPEAT)
9:00 Shark Tank
10:00 20/20
Prediction: Last Man - 5.8 million, 1.2/Shark - 7.1 million, 1.8/2020 - 7.0 million, 1.6

CBS
8:00 Unforgettable #33 "East of Islip"
9:00 Hawaii Five-0 #91 "Pe'epe'e Kainaka"
10:00 Blue Bloods #87 "Custody Battle"
Prediction: Unforgettable - 7.5 million, 1.0/Hawaii - 9.4 million, 1.4/Bloods - 11.5 million, 1.4

NBC
8:00 Dateline NBC
9:00 Grimm #63 "Nobody Knows the Trubel I've Seen"

Tuesday night had a mix of repeats and originals. On NBC, The Voice was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo for a season low. The good news was it didn't have a negative impact on About a Boy as that show was down a tenth in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. This show is certain to get renewed. At 9:30pm, Growing Up Fisher was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. On ABC, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was up half a million viewers but down two tenths in the demo from last week, when it aired at 9pm. Celebrity Wife Swap was down a tenth in viewers and the demo from last week's season premiere. Finally on FOX, Glee was up a tenth in viewers and down a tenth in the demo while The Mindy Project was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

THE RUNDOWN: Wednesday, April 23

Wednesday night has ABC's lineup almost back to all new though there is a Nashville special instead of a regular episode. Modern Family is in Australia for their episode and that, as well as limited competition, could help it climb a bit. The only other new shows on Wednesday are Survivor and American Idol.

ABC
8:00 The Middle #115 "The Wind Chimes"
8:30 Suburgatory #54 "No, You Can't Sit With Us"
9:00 Modern Family #116 "Australia"
9:30 Mixology #9 "Dominic & Kacey"
10:00 Nashville: On the Record (SPECIAL)
Prediction: Middle - 7.0 million, 1.9/Suburgatory - 5.5 million, 1.5/Modern - 9.8 million, 3.5/Mixology - 4.5 million, 1.7

CBS 
8:00 Survivor
9:00 Criminal Minds #195 "Strange Fruit" (REPEAT)

8:00 Bones
Viewers: 6.0 million, 18-49 demo: 1.5
9:00 The Following
Viewers: 4.4 million, 18-49 demo: 1.4 

CBS Mondays are hurting without How I Met Your Mother, but it probably could be worse. At 8pm, 2 Broke Girls was down a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series low, but a 2.1 at 8pm is not the worst thing. Week three of Friends with Better Lives was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Mike & Molly was down two tenths in viewers and the demo. On NBC, The Voice was down seven tenths in viewers and a rough four tenths in the demo for its first live show, but The Blacklist was down only two tenths in viewers and even in the demo despite a weaker lead-in so it was a good night for NBC's drama hit. On ABC, Dancing with the Stars was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. This show has held up very well this spring. At 10pm, Castle was dead even with its last new airing almost a month ago. Finally on FOX, Bones was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while The Following was dead even for a third straight week. It has had the same demo for six straight weeks.

9:00 Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey
Viewers: 3.7 million, 18-49 demo: 1.4 

Easter Sunday had a mix of new and repeat episodes along with a few specials and that led to low numbers. CBS saw The Amazing Race fall 1.1 million viewers and a tenth in the demo, The Good Wife drop six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo to tie a series low, and The Mentalist drop three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. On ABC, Once Upon a Time tumbled half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo for a series low. We can maybe chalk this up to Easter and a different lead-in and lead-out, but it needs to recover next week. NBC's Believe was one of two shows to rise as it was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo, but Crisis was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. The only other riser was Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey on FOX, which was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

THE RUNDOWN: Tuesday, April 22

Tuesday night has a bunch of repeats mixed in with some originals. The originals may benefit a little bit from repeats but that doesn't happen much. I think the best chance for a rise is the NBC lineup from 8-10pm.

ABC
8:00 Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #19 "The Only Light in the Darkness"
9:00 The Goldbergs #15 "Muscles Mirsky" (REPEAT)

9:00 New Girl #57 "Menus" (REPEAT)

Monday, April 21, 2014

THE RUNDOWN: Monday, April 21

Monday night has mostly new episodes except for 9:30-11pm on CBS. I think week two of CBS' lineup without How I Met Your Mother will not go as well as the first. Everything else should be close to normal levels.

WEEKEND REWIND: CBS 2003-04 Season

CBS 2003-04
Year by year, CBS was building a lineup full of solid hits. This past year, they added CSI: Miami,  Without a Trace, and Still Standing, all of which cracked the Top 30. This year was huge for them. They only launched eight shows but three turned into big hits: NCIS, Two and a Half Men, and Cold Case. Two of those are still on today and have been cornerstones of the CBS lineup for a decade.

Check out my ABC Weekend Rewind from 2003-04

Mondays
8:00 Yes, Dear
8:30 Still Standing
9:00 Everybody Loves Raymond
9:30 Two and a Half Men
10:00 CSI: Miami
"Two and a Half Men"
Monday nights remained steady as can be all season. With The King of Queens on the move to Wednesdays, Yes, Dear slid up to the 8pm slot and was paired with Still Standing in its second season. It wasn't the strongest hour but it was serviceable. Yes, Dear was only renewed for a midseason order after this year. Everybody Loves Raymond continued to dominate at 9pm but CBS needed to find a new anchor because Raymond was getting old. They did just that when they launched Two and a Half Men. The vulgar sitcom starring Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer was an instant hit with viewers and a departure from the gentler family sitcoms that were all over the CBS lineup. Men was one of the most recent comedies to be a smash hit out of the gates and it's still going strong in its 11th season now. CSI: Miami continued to be a strong performer at 10pm.

Tuesdays
(Sep 23-Mar 9)
8:00 NCIS
9:00 The Guardian
10:00 Judging Amy

(Mar 16-30)
8:00 NCIS
9:00 Century City

10:00 Judging Amy

(Apr 6-May 18)
8:00 NCIS
9:00 The Guardian (through May 4)
10:00 Judging Amy
"NCIS"
JAG was on the move to Fridays and in its place on Tuesdays was a spinoff, a little show called NCIS. The Mark Harmon starring crime drama didn't make a big splash in its first couple years but it was a decent enough performer. Over time though, it became the most watched drama on TV, which it still holds today in its 11th season. Just like Men on Mondays, CBS struck gold with this show but it wasn't apparent from the beginning. It was only getting 11-12 million viewers in its first season and now it gets 17-20 million viewers. Hard to believe considering how much overall viewing has gone down in the decade since its premiere. 9pm and 10pm continued to be The Guardian and Judging Amy. For a very brief time in March, The Guardian was replaced by Century City, a futuristic drama set in 2030 in Los Angeles starring Nestor Campbell and Viola Davis. The show lasted just a couple weeks before it was yanked and The Guardian was back. However, CBS felt they could upgrade on the night and cancelled The Guardian at the end of the season after three years. 

Wednesdays
(Sep 24-Nov 26)
8:00 60 Minutes II
9:00 The King of Queens (starting Oct 1)
9:30 Becker (starting Oct 8)
10:00 The Brotherhood of Poland, NH (through Oct 22)

(Dec 3-Mar 10)
8:00 60 Minutes II
9:00 The King of Queens
9:30 Becker (through Jan 28)
10:00 48 Hours

(Mar 17-May 19)
8:00 60 Minutes II
9:00 The King of Queens
9:30 The Stones (through Mar 31)
10:00 48 Hours
"The Brotherhood of Poland, NH"
CBS revamped Wednesdays yet again but things didn't really get better. 60 Minutes II slid back up to 8pm where it had been at times the previous year. CBS tried a new comedy hour at 9pm with veteran sitcoms The King of Queens and Becker. King survived and did pretty well in its new Wednesday slot but Becker was already on the decline and this just sped up the process. It was cancelled after 13 episodes, ending its six season run. Aside from a very brief (three episode) midseason run of new sitcom The Stones starring Judith Light, the 9:30pm slot was a rotating wheel of repeats of comedies. The 10pm hour was initially given to a new warm family drama The Brotherhood of Poland, NH. Created by David E. Kelley and starring Randy Quaid, John Carroll Lynch, Chris Penn, and Elizabeth McGovern, Brotherhood wasn't along the same lines as the other CBS dramas coming on the air. It didn't fit with the crime procedurals and was yanked after just five episodes. The rest of the season was 48 Hours at 10pm as Wednesday night still didn't have any flow to it.

Thursdays
8:00 Survivor (Sep 25-Dec 11/Feb 5-May 13)
9:00 CSI
10:00 Without a Trace
Thursdays was the top night for CBS with three hit shows: Survivor (in two editions, as usual), CSI, and Without a Trace. There was no reason to mess with this hit lineup.

Fridays
8:00 Joan of Arcadia
9:00 JAG
10:00 The Handler (through Jan 30)
"Joan of Arcadia"
Friday nights brought a trio of dramas including two newbies. At 8pm was Joan of Arcadia, a family drama about a girl who could see and talk to God. Starring Joe Mantegna, Mary Steenburgen, Amber Tamblyn, and Jason Ritter, the show was critically acclaimed out of the gate and even nominated for an Emmy in its first season. It was a surprise success story on Friday nights but it was short lived as the show only lasted one more year. JAG moved over from Tuesdays and was the first of many CBS dramas to spend its final couple years on Fridays. At 10pm was The Handler, a crime drama set in DC and starring Joe Pantoliano. The show lasted just 14 episodes. When it was cancelled, repeats of other dramas filled the 10pm slot for the rest of the season.

Saturdays
(Sep 27-Dec 20)
8:00 48 Hours (through Nov 29)
9:00 Hack
10:00 The District

(Jan 17-Mar 13)
8:00 Star Search
9:00 Hack
10:00 The District

(Mar 20-May 15)
8:00 Various Programming
10:00 The District (Apr 10-May 1)
Saturday nights were a bit of a mess as this was the last season where CBS really made a serious effort with the night. 48 Hours started at 8pm but was needed on Wednesdays. It was replaced by Star Search for awhile, which floundered in its second season on Saturday nights. 9pm was the second season of Hack, but it was cancelled after year two and the 8pm slot became movies and specials starting in March. 10pm was The District, but it was cancelled at the end of the year after four quiet seasons. This was one of the most unheralded shows to run as long as four years.

Sundays
7:00 60 Minutes
8:00 Cold Case
9:00 Sunday Night Movie
"Cold Case"
After striking out with comedies the previous season, CBS found a new hit drama to bridge 60 Minutes and the Sunday Night Movie. Just like Murder, She Wrote and Touched by an Angel before it, they found a feel-good drama in Cold Case, a procedural that blended past crimes and present investigations. The show featured many flashbacks and heartwarming moments as it pieced together the puzzle each week. Starring Kathryn Morris and Danny Pino, it became a reliable Sunday night performer for several years.
