    Final nail in the coffin for Constantine

  2. Tran says:

    Wasn’t surprised to watch President Charles Logan from 24 making a guest appearance on Hawaii Five-O last night.

    Hey Matt, how did 12 monkeys do?

  4. Larry says:

    Doesn’t look like anyone watches TV live on Friday. The networks might as well go with L+3 as their standard because there are more people timeshifting their programing. To stay with live overnight ratings is going to kill broadcast.

  5. Carla Krae says:

    Recorded Constantine and watched at 10. Wonder how many people didn’t know it moved to 8pm? I personally know a few that had to be told yesterday.

  6. Kidwynn says:

    Really disappointed about Constantine’s ratings. I really enjoyed last night’s episode. I wonder if the ratings were due in part for NBC really not promoting the new change when it airs from 10pm to 8pm. Not to mention with it’s dark tone is it really a good idea to air it at 8pm? I think NBC just wants to kill this show.

    Kind of sad about Constantine. I didn’t care for the pilot but was hooked after SyFy ran a marathon.

  8. Boiler says:

    Can’t renew Jane and cancel Hart of Dixie. Pair them up and let them go!!!

    • Patrick says:

      They can, and they almost certainly will.

      • Boiler says:

        Would be stupid. Nos. basically the same and Dixie established. Nothing against Jane but doubt numbers wil
        l get better.

        • brandydanforth81 says:

          Jane has critical acclaim,AWrds. HoD none.HoD can be syndicated like Nikita with 76 episodes.CW supports,promotes Jane but compleley ignores HoD always has especially after season one.CW already renewed 8 shows ,some for Midseason& summer that leaves little room for those returning series plus new series three times a season/year.Jane was also Likley brought in as Dixie’s replacement-non genre show,a kplight,soapy dramedy.CW HAS to cancel a few shows to make room room for new shows,

          • brandydanforth81 says:

            I say this a fan of Dixie but I expect it ,BatB,Messengers( based on the death slot timeslot) cancelled in May.

    Move Constantine to The CW. They would love those numbers. They’re more into comic book series than Nothing But Crap.

    • brandydanforth81 says:

      CW dosent pick up other networks castoffs.Theyve already got a full schedule as is and are already devolving a third DC show of thier own.Plus they said they don’t want all genera shows and it would Likley be too exspensive for CW

    Glee was freaking awesome Britanna Forever

    The sad thing is I thought Constantine was really good last night. I for one enjoy the show. I know it is a long shot, but hopefully it gets a chance to continue.
