NBC | A.D. The Bible Continues (6.3 mil/1.1) dropped 19 and 35 percent, while American Odyssey (3.3 mil/0.6) fell 20 and 25 percent.

FOX | The Simpsons (3.2 mil/1.4) dipped a tenth, Family Guy (3.3 mil/1.7) rose two tenths and Last Man on Earth (3.4 mil/1.4) inched up a tenth.

    Never in a million years if I could have three and a half hours of watching a sleepless award show like the ACM awards last night. Guess we will never have another three and a half hours for another awards show involving music just like what the Grammys did back in February.

    Ouch for NBC.I think 2014- 15 is a bad year for NBC.None of the
    2014-15 TV shows are hit,but nearly all of them all canceled,due to low ratings(not surprised).Americans really hate NBC.Its the end of an era.RIP NBC

      NBC lost its way when it abandoned development and committed to reality and nightly Leno. So misguided. Peacock needs a couple of buzzy series and be sure they are executed well. SMASH was bungled. New seems too late to the party with ALLEGIANCE and AMERICAN ODYSSEY and the Heigl vehicle. NBC could make good with Dick Wolf again, now located to Chicago. That LAW & ORDER reboot could be a launch pad for viewers. And bring some stars in. And revamp DATELINE. It is sucha grab bag an dnot compelling.

    Interesting twist in last night’s Secrets and Lies. Never thought much of Ben’s wife but last night she was a total and complete shrew, lol. Curious to see how this ends up. Revenge had a great episode also. I hope this is the end though, it has no where to go.

    Happy to see “REVENGE Ticks Up” in the headline! Last night’s episode was one of my favorites.

    I think the country awards show was boring; same people in your face, Miranda (you’d think she was the only one there), Swift again is always on camera; sick of these people.

  7. Boiler says:

    I like country music but last night’s show not good. Started with having it in a football stadium, as another poster mentioned same people all the time. These used to be fun but maybe they have gotten too big for themselves

    NBC did no favor to American Odyssey when they scheduled it after The Bible because they appeal to a totally different demo. Most the folks watching The Bible probably go to bed at 10.
