    I never even heard of the Goodwin Games, nor did I have any idea it was going to be on. Based on the ratings, doesn't look like I shouldn't bother with it anyway.

    Isn't that what matters? How it does against the shows that are on at the same time?

    Not for a show like American Idol that was once the number 1 show on television. To go from #1 overall to 5th on the night is a pretty big tumble.

    The Goodwin Games: I watched this, and was pleasantly surprised. It was enjoyable and fun, and I'll watch the rest.
    Here is some background on it, from Alan Sepinwall...

    Normally I would run as fast as I can from something like this. But I enjoyed it enough to watch the rest of it. Plus I love Becki Newton.

    The TNT bar show is Sullivan & Son, starting back up this summer.

    The summer burn-off reminded me of something I read last week about FOX making a big commitment into "year-round programming". Didn't they say they were going to do that years ago?

    For all the lip service, summer still remains - for completely valid business reasons - a desert of network original (non-reality) programming.

    Yes, FOX made a big deal of it many years ago, then it kind of got swept under the rug. But the reality is, reruns are shown just a fraction as often as they were 10-15 years ago, and summer is filled with original programming, even if most of it is reality. Outside of CBS and their insistence on sticking with crime procedurals that rerun well, there aren't very many reruns shown by the other networks, either during the season or in the summer.

    It used to be summer was the time I watched cable, who had new programming. That's still somewhat true. There's usually a bunch of shows on USA that I watch during the summer, and one or two on FX. Of course now with DVRs, I always have a bunch of stuff saved up..and there's always a baseball game on, and Big Brother. The summer is no longer a time you have to suffer through reruns of any kind.

    comments from TVbytheNumbers:

    NBC was the number one network in adults 18-49 while ABC was on top with total viewers.

    On NBC, the news special Devastation in Oklahoma garnered a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating, even with the 2.0 that The Voice Recap earned in the time period last week. The Voice scored a 3.1, down 11 percent from last week's 3.5 adults 18-49 rating for its lowest rated Tuesday telecast this cycle. The season finale of Grimm earned 1.7 adults 18-49 rating, even with last week, but up 6 percent from a 1.6 fir the season one finale on May 18, 2012. Your predictions were accurate.

    On ABC, the special The Bachelor’s Funniest Moments earned a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating, up 9 percent from Wipeout’s 1.1 in the time period last week. The two hour season finale of Dancing with the Stars scored a 2.6, up 44 percent from last week's 1.8 adults 18-49 rating but down 21 percent from a 3.3 for last season’s finale on May 22, 2012. It was the lowest rated finale in the show’s history.

    On FOX, a two hour So You Think You Can Dance earned a 1.9 adults 18-49 even with last week’s one hour premiere.

    The burn off of ABC's Family Tools didn't last long. They pulled it tonight but as of right now next week's is still scheduled.

    "24" is scheduled for next summer. I sure thought there have been a few other non-cable, non-burnoff summer network shows in the past ~10 years, but can't think of any others.

    Was it originally scheduled for tonight? I actually looked in the listings to see if I was forgetting which day it was on, and yeah, I noticed it was still on for next week.

    This one is worse than "The Goodwin Games", but somehow I keep watching the shows with the lead in "Family Tools".. He always acts as the bumbling guy, pretty much the same thing, and the shows keep getting cancelled quickly. None are great, but are vaguely amusing.. (The "leading up to the wedding" one, based on a British show, was the best.)

    I've got 16 shows and over 200 hours of programming set to record this summer. I don't know how the hell I'm going to catch up on the dozen or so shows I still have left from the fall/winter seasons.

    Apparently NBC and CBS are fighting over whether Sunday Night Football or the Big Bang Theory is the number one rated prime time show for the just completed TV season.

    Here's NBC's arguments:
    I'm curious what arguments CBS has to refute those numbers.

    Here's a list of the premiere dates of all the shows airing on broadcast and cable this summer:

    http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2013/05/17/list-of-tv-premiere-dates-for-summer-2013/183099/

    Sure, most of these shows are on cable. But there are still several on the broadcast networks, and not all of them are reality.

    comments from TVbytheNumbers:

    ABC and CBS tied for the number one network in adults 18-49 while CBS was on top with total viewers.

    On ABC, the season finale of The Middle scored a 2.0 up 5 percent from last week’s 1.9 adults 18-49 rating and even with last season’s finale on May 23, 2012. The season finale of Modern Family garnered a 3.6 down 3 percent from last week's 3.7 adults 18-49 rating and down 12 percent from a 4.1 for last season’s finale on May 23, 2012, for its lowest rated season finale ever. How To Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) earned a 2.2 up 10 percent from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. The season finale of Nashville scored a 1.9 up 12 percent from last week's 1.7 adults 18-49 rating, for its best adults 18-49 performance since January 16. Your predictions were a little too low.

    On CBS, the two hour finale of Criminal Minds earned a 2.7 up 4 percent from last week's 2.6 adults 18-49 rating but down 25 percent from a 3.6 for last season’s finale on May 16, 2012.

    On NBC, Dateline scored a 1.4 up 8 percent from last Wednesday’s 1.3 adults 18-49 rating. The season finale of Law And Order: SVU earned a 1.6 up 7 percent from last week's 1.5 adults 18-49 rating but down 20 percent from a 2.0 for last season’s finale on May 23, 2012. The season finale of Chicago Fire garnered a 1.7 down 15 percent from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were too optimistic.

    On FOX, the season premiere of MasterChef earned a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating at 8PM down 13 percent from a 2.3 for the previous season premiere on June 4, 2012. A second episode at 9PM scored a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.

    On The CW, the movie Love Happens notched a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating.

    Wow, I didn't realize so many shows stretched their season finales out until last night. Most of the shows I watch ended a week or two ago, and the only new network stuff I've had this week was Simpsons, Family Guy, Rules of Engagement, Revolution, and Modern Family.

    It really makes you wonder where NBC would be without SNF? But, are they making money on it? The rights fees are huge, and, it doesn't seem to be helping bump their other shows much.

    I'm glad to see How to Live your Life with your Parents doing ok. That show has grown on me. The pilot was just ok, but it's really gotten to be pretty good. Is ABC planning to bring that one back?

    It was. I saw it in my ToDo List as late as Wednesday morning when I glanced at it to see what I could watch that night.

    Then, by the evening, it was gone from the ToDo List so I assume it was a last-minute ABC decision.

    To be clear on my comments about summer being a "desert" on the networks... I fully realize there are a lot more original programs in the summer than there used to be - and I enjoy many of them.

    My point was specifically about FOX because they said years ago they were moving to a "full year" schedule and they never really did. And now this year they're saying the exact same thing again. And I doubt they will now either.

    But that said, I totally understand why they don't. It doesn't make business sense because the audience just isn't there in the summer. I don't blame them for not doing more in the summer. I just hate to have them keep saying they're going to - when we all know they won't.
