    Is he joking? CBS has been known as the "geezer network" (I'm out of the "young" demo, so I guess I'm technically part of that, though I've been watching 60 minutes(*) since I was a kid) for decades.. Heck, I've known about it for decades, and it was probably true for decades before that.

    (*) Though to hopefully be slightly young, I actually listen to the free audio podcast which (1) I play at 2x, and (2) has very few if any ads.. (Once in a while they seem to put a few ads in the very beginning but I 30 second skip until I hear "and I'm <whoever>, on this week's edition of 60 minutes".)

    I'm smack in the middle of that 18-49 demographic and the only two networks I watch are CBS and Fox.

    I guess a lot of people grew up with CBS and stuck with Walter Cronkite for decades and it's rubbed off?

    Though, up to around 30-odd years ago, the most popular TV show in Canada was CBS news. (Then Canada actually started getting some local channels of its own that carried proper national news).

    Heck, even as the geezer network, they're still pulling in high ratings.

    I have zero idea what network any show is on except "Justified" being on FX for some reason. Why do people care about watching a network as opposed to a show?

    Comments from TVbytheNumbers:

    Last night’s Monday Night Football game (Minnesota at NY Giants) was simulcast on the CBS affiliate in Minnesota and on The CW affiliate in New York. As a result, CBS and CW numbers may be inflated and subject to more than typical adjustments in the finals.

    NBC was number one in Adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

    On NBC, The Voice fell to a new season low (for a Monday) 4.2, down three tenths from last week's 4.5 adults 18-49 rating. The Blacklist matched last week's 3.0 adults 18-49 rating.

    On CBS, How I Met Your Mother earned a 2.9, down two tenths from last week's 3.1 adults 18-49 rating. 2 Broke Girls matched last week's 2.6 adults 18-49 rating. Mom garnered a 2.4, up four tenths from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. Hostages earned a 1.4, up two tenths from last week's series low 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

    On ABC, Dancing with the Stars earned a season low 1.9, down two tenths from last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. Castle notched a season low-tying 1.9 down three tenths from last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.

    On FOX, Bones scored a 2.1, up a tenth from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating.

    On the CW, Hart Of Dixie earned a 0.6, up two tenths from last week’s 0.4. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST scored a 0.6, up three tenths from last week's 0.3 adults 18-49 rating.

    A bit late but Walking Dead's 16 and 14 mill audiences for the last couple of weeks (plus numerous DVR watchers I'm sure) put all the network shows, bar football, to shame.

    I don't get the enormous popularity, but I guess people like to be scared.

    :confused:

    Unless you're a small child afraid of monsters under your bed, there is nothing 'scary' about the show.

    You mean other than the horrific creatures who and used to be characters on the show coming out of nowhere then eating human intestines in a bleak, bleak world full of despair and violence?

    Sorry, I don't find it 'scary'. Intense? Yes. Gross? Yes. Possibly disturbing imagery? Yes. Scary? Nope.

    I have yet to find a horror movie that actually scares me, which is why I don't generally enjoy the genre.

    I think I read somewhere that when the economy is down, horror movies (and in this case TV shows) tend to do very well. Not sure what the correlation is, but the golden age of horror flicks, was the 1930s, which was during the Great Depression. We see a huge uptick on Vampire and Zombie movies and TV shows over the last 5-10 years or so.

    It must be true of everyone, then. No one is ever scared by horror movies/shows, apparently. :confused:

    I don't think scary is the correct word either, gruesome or gory to the extreme (it makes me laugh most of the time), but there's nothing to make me jump out of my seat or hide behind the couch :)

    Either way, the fact that Steve doesn't like the show isn't especially relevant to a ratings thread, I'm sure there are lots of other shows he doesn't like that get decent ratings. Walking Dead however is, I think, the top rated cable show ever and is beating most of the network shows these days.

    Yes, that's exactly what I said. :rolleyes:

    Nothing you put forth in what makes the show 'scary' would cause me, or most adults, to be in fear while watching the show. Some people may, but to say that the reason 16 million people watched the season premiere is because they like to be scared is ludicrous.

    I know I'm not. But I still like them.

    I like the Walking Dead because I think it is a good drama. Now most of the special effects look fake because it is a TV show and you need a movie budget to look more realistic with the digital effects. So I don't even see how a person could get scared from the actual effects.

    I agree with your last sentence (it's not good because it is scary to some people) but what you said was, "Unless you're a small child afraid of monsters under your bed, there is nothing 'scary' about the show."

    There are plenty of people who find it scary. Even some reviewers.

    We'll agree to disagree about the level of scariness. Let's leave it at that and get back to the ratings.

    Comments from TVbytheNumbers:

    FOX was number one in adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

    NOTE: Due to the nature of live programming the ratings for FOX (World Series) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers.

    On FOX, Game 1 of the World Series earned a preliminary 4.1 adults 18-49 rating up from last year's Game 1 (Detroit vs. San Francisco ) which earned a 3.2 preliminary rating (and rose to a 3.6 in the finals).

    On CBS, Survivor earned a series low (excluding recaps/specials) 2.3, down three tenths from last week's 2.6 adults 18-49 rating. Criminal Minds matched last week's 2.7 adults 18-49 rating. CSI garnered a 2.1, up a tenth from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating.

    On ABC, The Middle earned a season low 2.1, down a tenth from its last original's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. Back In The Game earned a series low 1.7, down two tenths from last week's 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. Modern Family garnered a season low 3.8, down three tenths from last week's 4.1 adults 18-49 rating. Super Fun Night notched a 2.2, up a tenth from last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. Nashville matched last week's 1.6 adults 18-49 rating.

    On NBC, Revolution tied last week's series low 1.4 adults 18-49 rating. Law And Order: SVU hit a season low 1.4, down four tenths from last week's 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.Now-canceled Ironside earned a 0.8, down two tenths from last week's 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

    On the CW, Arrow fell to a 0.9, down two tenths from last week's 1.1 adults 18-49 rating. The Tomorrow People also dropped two tenths to a 0.6 from last week's 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

    I hope there is another wave of cancelations coming in the next week or two. I have several borderline shows being saved. I'm not sure I want to watch them to begin with so the network dropping them would make my decision easier (Wonderland, Reign, Tomorrow People, and Hostages).
