Primetime Ratings, Wednesday, 4/2/14



CBS won Wednesday night in all measures.

'Survivor' matched last week's season low of 2.3, but once again knocked off 'American Idol' at 8 p.m. 'Criminal Minds' shot up four tenths to a 2.6. 'CSI' ended the eye's night by falling two tenths to a 1.8. Over on FOX, 'American Idol' dropped a tenth to a 2.1.

'The Middle' bumped up a tenth to a 2.0 to start things off for ABC. 'Suburgatory' recovered nicely from last week's drop, rising two tenths to a 1.7. 'Modern Family' wasn't so lucky, falling three tenths to a 3.3, although it still topped the night in the 18-49 demo.

'Mixology' matched last week's 1.6, which is quite a good thing after several down weeks. I still think it's more likely to get the ax than not though. 'Nashville' even had a decent night, rising two tenths to a 1.5, the struggling sophomore drama's first positive movement in several weeks.

'Revolution' rose for once, although it was only back up to the 1.3 it spent weeks sitting at previously. 'Law & Order: SVU' jumped up two tenths to a 1.7. 'Chicago P.D.' also increased, rising two tenths to a 1.6. Maybe this means 'P.D.' is finally recovering from its recent sharp decline. Finally, The CW had a down night, with 'Arrow' dropping a tenth to a 0.8, and 'The 100' dropping a tenth to a 0.6.

The five main factors I consider when making a prediction are thus:

1. Does the show win its timeslot, and how often? (CW shows are exempt from this criteria.)

2. How do the show's ratings compare to similar programs on the same network? (Self explanatory.)

3. How long has the show been on the air? (Veteran series are always more likely to get renewed.)

4. Does the show have any high-profile leads? (Never discount star power.)

5. How much does the show cost to make? (Approximately, exact TV budgets are hard to come by.)

Newly updated predictions are in bold.

"Can you possibly in the future put the name of the show that you have a photo of and maybe even the US Network that it airs on please?"

If you hover over the picture, it shows a description.

Question: I've never seen the show myself but isn't that photo of a Canadian imported show that shows in the US on Ion TV? The name of the show slips me at this time however I'm kinda confused why you show a photo you don't even mention anywhere?


Can you possibly in the future put the name of the show that you have a photo of and maybe even the US Network that it airs on please?


Lastly I was wondering how hard is it to have Cable TV shows stats/info at least maybe weekly sometime in the future? At least a few of the Major ones like A&E, ABC Family, Bravo, Discovery Channel, Food Network, FX, HGTV, History, HBO, SHOWTIME, Spike TV, STARZ, TBS, TLC, TNT, USA etc.?


Maybe just the ones that air regular weekly series like American Pickers, Amish Mafia, Anger Management, Chopped, Cougar Town, Cutthroat Kitchen, Da Vinci’s Demons, Deadliest Catch, Duck Dynasty, Game of Thorns, House Hunters, Pawn Stars, Pretty Little Liars, Long Island Medium, Storage Wars, Suits, etc.?
