    Sadly, this is how I handle most new shows, especially mid-season tryouts (not so much for Fall Premiers). Record shows, wait for buzz, discuss possibility of renew/cancel... then maybe watch. Red Widow, Zero Hour, Golden Boy... those and others waiting to be viewed or deleted.

    Most new sit-coms I'll try right away. It's the dramas that gotcha.

    It's sad, because it didn't use to be this way. I made every effort to watch pilots quickly. But the itchy trigger finger syndrome by the nets has eliminated all desire to be their guinea pig. :(

    We so the same thing... I just deleted all of the Zero Hour shows, unwatched. We have The Following's episodes, and will probably start watching that soon, since it's been renewed.

    Well at least that is good news for a mid season show I started watching.

    comments from TVbytheNumbers:

    FOX won the night in adults 18-49 while CBS was on top with Total Viewers.

    On CBS, The Big Bang Theory earned a 5.4 adults 18-49 rating down 4 percent from a 5.6 for its last original episode on February 21.Your predictions were too optimistic. Two and a Half Men scored a 3.9 adults 18-49 rating even with its performance for its most recent new episode on February 21. Person Of Interest garnered a 2.8 among adults 18-49, down 3 percent from a 2.9 on February 21.

    On FOX, a 90 minute American Idol scored a 3.5 adults 18-49 rating down 8 percent from last week’s 3.8. Note: The show ran over two minutes, so both it, and Glee are likely to be adjusted in the final ratings. At 9:30, Glee earned a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating up 47 percent from a 1.7 its last episode on February 14 when it aired at 9PM.

    On NBC, Community garnered a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating up 25 percent from last week’s 1.2. 1600 Penn tied its series low with a 0.9 among adults 18-49, even with last week.

    That's much better from Community. It might survive to another season if it can keep pulling in ratings like that (which would be sure-fire cancellation numbers on any other network not named the CW).

    You guys realize that if any of the Nielsen families do the same thing, you guys are effectively the *reason* for the early cancellation.

    No, if any of the those families do the same thing, then THEY have an effect on the ratings. We are not a ratings family, and I've even opted out from the anonymized data collection that directv does, so we have zero effect on the ratings.

    sweet home, al
    i disagree. the method used to analyze the data doesn't allow any show to build. either it's a hit right away, or it's done. no room for growth or time for development.

    often a show is gone before i even knew it was there. downton abbey was into it's second season before i watched the first episode.

    in fact, we've been trained NOT to watch a new series. why waste our time if it's gone after three episodes air? we might as well wait for ratings evaluators to decide a new show has a chance before investing any time or effort.

    Not necessarily true. Scandal was getting 1.9-2.0 ratings in its first season last year and this year is up to around the 2.8 range. It doesn't happen often but it can happen.

    comments from TVbytheNumbers:

    Please Note: On the first Sunday of Daylight Saving Time, overall TV usage declined notably during the opening hours of the night: Adult 18-49 PUTs were off -6% during the 7 o’clock hour and down -7% in the 8 o’clock hour

    CBS and FOX tied for number one among adults 18-49 while CBS was on top with with total viewers.

    On CBS, 60 Minutes was even with last week's 1.6 adults 18-49 rating. The Amazing Race scored a 2.3, down two tenths from last week's 2.5 rating. The Good Wife garnered a 1.5, down a tenth from last week's 1.6 adults 18-49 rating. The Mentalist notched a 1.6, up a tenth from last week's 1.5 among adults 18-49.

    On FOX, American Dad earned a 1.6, down three tenths from its last original's 1.9 (which aired at 9:30). The Simpsons was flat with last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. The Cleveland Show was even with last week's 1.8 adults 18-49 rating. Family Guy earned a 2.6, up two tenths from its last original's 2.4. Bob’s Burgers scored a 1.8, up a tenth from last week's 1.7 adults 18-49 rating.

    On ABC, America’s Funniest Home Videos garnered a 1.4, down three tenths from last week's 1.7 adults 18-49 rating. Once Upon A Time was even with last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were far too optimistic. Revenge earned a 2.0, up two tenths from its last original's 1.8 four weeks ago. Red Widow earned a 1.2, down three tenths from last week's 1.5 adults 18-49 premiere rating.

    On NBC, Celebrity Apprentice was even with last week's 1.7 adults 18-49 premiere rating.

    Man, Once Upon a Time has taken a real beating this season. I wonder if they'll pull Red Widow or let it run its course.

    I've watched OUaT since day one. But I now have the last 3-4 stacked on the TiVo. I no longer feel the same impetus to watch it like I used to. I think the writers have done a poor job of handling the sophomore season. Obviously, lots & lots of others feel the same, as its ratings have really dropped over the last few months.

    Red Widow falls into the group mentioned above. Will wait and see if it survives. If so, I'll try it.

    I agree. I watch it while doing other things and I keep it because my 13 year old daughter still loves it. I just think that the "charm" of having the fairy tale characters showing up and guessing who they are is no longer interesting to me.

    I'm not watching Red Widow until after I see the numbers for week 3. I suspect it will be pulled before week 4 with the current trend. I've never waited to watch a show before - heck, I even watched Zero Hour - but the timing was such this time that I saw the numbers before I watched it and became wary of emotionally investing.

    When OuaT started up again in January, I went to start the episode and my wife said, "I don't really care about this show anymore." So we haven't seen the last six episodes and I assume we never will, unless we get caught up on everything else, or hear that it suddenly got really good, neither of which is likely.

    After being 14 eps behind, I just deleted all of my unwatched OuaT eps, and deleted my SP. I never really liked it (I got similarly behind last season), but just hoped that it would get more compelling, which it clearl never did (for me).

    The show isn't even reaching the 1.0 ratings mark. Most shows would get pulled off the air with ratings like that. Be happy that they are being shown at all.
