    • Yes! Totally agree, but I like Suburgatory and The Neighbors is growing on me, and since The Middle and Modern Family are not going anywhere anytime soon, where would they go?

  • I think it’s really hard when new shows take these long breaks. I bet it will pick back up next week. I didn’t even realize Chicago Fire was back last night until this morning.

  • Chicago Fire could do so much better if it had a decent lead in. SVU has no crowd anymore so CF is suffering.

    • I agree. It’s beating SVU on a pretty regular basis in the ratings so they hopefully they find a better show to lead into it. It’s gotten SO much better since the pilot and I’m really enjoying the stories and the entire CF cast. =)

  • CF has up and down ratings and I don’t think it’s solely SVU. NBC like the other two networks keep screwing around with these schedules no one knows what’s repeats. You reap what you sow.

  • Looks like if Suburgatory gets renewed for a 3rd season, it will prob get the Cougar Town/Happy Endings treatment.

    • I really hope not!! I know that it definitely does better with a new Modern Family lead-in, but it would be a shame if they let this show go!

    • These shows are great and solid ratings for the CW. Wonder what ratings they would get if it was on a big network, no matter, keep up the good work CW.

      • they probly wouldn’t exist on another network….closest is Grimm and Fringe maybe.

  • I don’t understand ABC’s thinking in scheduling new episodes of the Neighbors and Suburgatory behind reruns? This guaranteed low numbers the last couple of weeks. The Neighbors had been steadily improving and Suburgartory had stabilized nicely. Why jeopardize that with boneheaded scheduling moves? It’s not like ABC has a wealth of sitcom riches to draw from making these 2 shows expendable.
