Tra la tra la!!!

Niiiiice. I was thinking about that recently, wondering when they would announce what was getting picked up. I assumed it would, but it's good to know for sure.

Last week, Jan 11, The Office got it's highest ratings so far according to Brian Bumgardner. NBC came in 2nd for the time slot. This week was down a little, and they are 3rd.

"Ugly Betty" handily won the 8 p.m. hour for ABC with a 9.5/15. CBS aired a "CSI" rerun and scored a 7.8/12. "My Name Is Earl," 5.9/9, and "The Office," 5.5/8, put NBC in third. "'Til Death" and "The War at Home" were fourth for FOX, edging The CW's "Smallville," 3.1/5, (The CW had a few more viewers).

Jan. 11's ratings:

ABC's "Ugly Betty," 9.0/14, scored its biggest audience in some time at 8 p.m. "My Name Is Earl," 6.5/10, and "The Office," 5.8/9, put NBC in second.

Yeah, 9 share, pretty nice. Damn that Ugly Betty, though. Steals our ratings and our Golden Globes (we'll kill 'em at the Emmys, though).

im surprised. networks dont usually renew shows so early.

like VM. UPN people got pissed when the show got renewed so early, and didnt have to "prove itself" or soemthing.

I just saw my television guide and found that on Thursday, Feb 22 American Idol will air at 8 o'clock. It is a one hour show, so it will conflict with The Office. I hope it's only temporary because they will take the viewers. Every year the audience for AI keeps growing.

Every year the audience for AI keeps growing.

And every year our collective soul dies a little bit faster.

Shows will get pulled off for a lot of reasons in addition to ratings. I was wondering if they ever pre-determine how long a show will run? I just ordered SPACED (Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, the cast of Shaun of the Dead) on DVD and there were only 2 seasons. It was a great show - did they just decide not to make any more than 14 episodes, ratings or no ratings?

Feb 16th 2007

It would be hard to plan on a specific number of seasons before a show even starts, because so many shows bomb and never make it more than a few episodes -- hell, most of them don't even make it that far. But you do hear about the creators of some shows picking a finite end point: Damon Lindehof talks about Lost being done after five seasons or seven seasons (depending, I suppose, on how much he wants me to keep watching); Joss Whedon seems to have planned to end Buffy after five and (some would say regrettably) changed his mind after the fact.

Maybe it's different with the BBC, on which seasons run only six or seven episodes and everybody seems to know everybody. (Seriously. Play "Six Degrees of Martin Freeman" some day and I swear you could get back to Shakespeare and still have two steps to spare.)

Joss Whedon seems to have planned to end Buffy after five and (some would say regrettably) changed his mind after the fact.

I think what happened was that the WB dropped the show after 5 seasons, so they thought it would be the end, killing off Buffy. Then UPN picked it up for the last two seasons rather unexpectedly.

Feb 17th 2007

Yeah, I've heard that, but he'd certainly been planning on killing Buffy for quite some time. It has to have occurred to him as a natural place to end the show. I, personally, don't mind the last two seasons (or at least the sixth), but a lot of people really hate them. (Me, I think all the crying in season 5 gets really old really fast, and the Dawn storyline was a butchery in a lot of ways, and foreshadowed Sanctimonious Overserious Buffy from Season 7 a lot.)

Feb 17th 2007

Season 7 was annoying, I thought. And I wanted to drive a stake through Dawn every chance I got.

I wanted to drive a stake through Dawn every chance I got.

Ahem... TWSS

Feb 18th 2007

I think this is a more TWHS moment, really. And kinda gross given that she was like 14 when she started.

Feb 19th 2007

Oh yeah, I never though about that. Or that. Me and my big mouth...

Feb 19th 2007

That's what she said.

I felt that the Dawn storyline was a horror, and all the crying was tiresome, but I felt that the final punch of the show (not going to spoil it for the unspoiled) was worth waiting for.

Feb 19th 2007

Yeah, the final fate of Sunnydale was perfect. I just got so tired of Buffy in Season 7. I found myself talking to the screen: "Shut up, Buffy. Shut uuuuuuuuup, Buffy. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WILL YOU CAN IT?!"

I don't know where they got the idea that adolescent girls spend 75% of their time crying and writing angry diary entries. Anyone? Suck it up, Dawn!

As an aside, I can't watch Michelle Trachtenberg in anything now.

Hi BigTunaFishing!

What's up with these random threads that haven't seen the light of day for years on end? It's giving me an uneasy feeling, seeing them take over the front page.

Aug 25th 2008

I think bringing them back to the front page is a hate crime. Because I hate it.

Aug 25th 2008

Much like peach iced tea and anal fissures, no doubt.

It's like Packer pooped on the NA floor and stunk up the entire board. That's what it's like.

Aug 25th 2008

I don't see any package. How big was it?

Aug 25th 2008

Your mom's ratings suck.
