    Oh and SVU. Why don’t they just move it to USA since it is technically the Law & Order: SVU Network. Hell why don’t they just create the Law & Order SVU: Network. It kills me the stopped the original & kept on with this one.

  2. Wes says:

    Glad to hear that Grimm and Parenthood are book for a full season pickup. Hope P&R and Community also get the green light for a full pickup.

    Revolution deserves to be renewed, as much as the rest of the NBC shows. It has competed with CBS and ABC and won the demo. NBC made the mistake of putting the show on a 4 month hiatus. SMASH was not pulling the demo or the ratings. Moving any show around is asking for more disaster for ratings and the viewers at NBC. Grimm, Parenthood, SVU and Chicago Fire would not be able to compete on Monday nights with ABC and CBS in that time slot. CF is 1.8 for NBC is good, Revolution appeals to different demographics and was beating the competition until their long hiatus. NBC has tried others shows all cancelled. NBC will keep Revolution with the Voice. NBC did not renew Revolution to save face. They renewed the show because it does have promise. It is a JJA show. NBC has no reason to save face with Revolution. I never like a show that is to hyped up and automatically has high expectations. I knew when it premiered with the highest rating since V it would drop to the lows 2. The show in the second half of the season has been very good. I would like to see it succeed and so does the President at NBC. Honestly was surprised NBC renewed it because syfy just does not work on major networks. Everyone complains about the Voice lead in and expectations a show should keep the audience. MF on abc every show after sheds viewers. I watch Revolution and Hannibal on NBC have never watched an episode of Grimm or Chicago Fire on another network they would be cancelled. Thank goodness Revolution is on NBC. I did watch Deception and I really liked the show. That show could not compete with abc or nbc. I still hope it gets a mercy renewal.

      Well NBC does own SyFy, but that aside ‘Revolution’ came back strong from that 4 month absence. I love the weekly twists and expanded geogrpahical map.

    Please convince NBC to renew Smash and move it off Saturday night to give it a fair chance. If they want to know why their ratings are so low, they should quit showing so many senseless sit-coms and reality shows. I am not talking about The Voice, whgich is probably one of the best competitions on TV now.

    I really need to Netflix or DVD Parenthood, looks like such a fun show.

  9. schu says:

    Yay Bravermans! So happy for more Parenthood.

    Thanks nbc for renewing Parenthood. finally did somthing right, after the anne curry firing

    Revolution DOES deserve a 2nd season. After Danny got killed (rather heroically – t’was a good death Crixus) the show took on a darker tone. Well it was already dark in tone but it’s really lost any hope of a quick end to the Monroe republic or Monroe’s life for that matter. And now they can make nuclear devices? I’m sticking with this one via torrents. Nice to see Grimm also returning for a 3rd year, Munro is a great character.

  12. Brandy says:

    So glad Parenthood got renewed, and I hope it continues into the next few years. That is one of the ONLY shows I watch. Love it! Best show on TV in my opinion right now.
