TV-Show-Palooza! The Hustle Gets You Up On TV News!

So the new TV Season is in full swing. There have been some surprises (really, Robin Williams?) and not-so-surprises (We are Men). So I am here to sort it all out and tell you what’s ahead. TV Rules!

First up. The next shows to be chopped are…

Cancellation Clock Is Ticking for a Handful of New Series

“The rookie series that would seem to be the most in danger — and in dire need of a ratings uptick — are NBC’s Thursday comedy “Welcome to the Family” and ABC’s Sunday drama “Betrayal.” Both did a mere 0.8 rating/2 share in adults 18-49 in their timeslots last week, according to Nielsen.”

The shows in no danger…

Total Viewers (in millions-Nielsen)
1. Sunday Night Football (NBC), 22.07
2. NCIS (CBS), 18.33
3. The Big Bang Theory (CBS), 17.64
4. The Walking Dead (AMC), 16.11
5. NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS), 14.84
6. The Voice-Monday (NBC), 14.64
7. Dancing With the Stars (ABC), 13.00
8. The Millers (CBS), 11.73
9. Person of Interest (CBS), 11.65
10. Monday Night Football (ESPN), 11.45

And maybe America’s Sweetheart…?

The Biz: Is Katie on the Way Out?

“The daytime talk show hosted by former Today and CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric was the highest-rated new syndicated talker of last season. This season, Katie is averaging 2.3 million viewers through Sept. 29, ranking sixth among all syndicated talk shows and higher than any of the new entries.

But the program has never delivered the audience levels Disney/ABC’s syndication arm promised to the TV stations that pay high fees to carry it. Although Katie finished last season with more viewers than NBCUniversal’s new Steve Harvey, the comedian’s show was considered a bigger success because it is far less expensive to produce and license, and it needed to satisfy much lower expectations. Harvey’s ratings were higher than the programs it replaced, especially on NBC stations, and it has already been renewed through 2016.”

Poor Katie…..but, on the flipside, she IS rich. So there IS that.
