Personally, if MacGyver were suddenly canceled or whatever, the worst part would be all the time and effort everyone put into making these episodes that no one could see dry.gif

Oh, I doubt the episodes would just disappear. They would use it as a filler show, shove it onto CBS All Access or drop it to Saturday. They did the same with Justin's "Rush Hour" - when the ratings kept dropping, they pulled it from the regular schedule to make room for another show. A few months later in Spring, they dropped it onto Saturday evening; basically burning off the episodes.

Also, because the Reboot isn't in its first season, they would still release it on DVD. CBS would still try to squeeze some money out of it after paying for the production. And if they got a syndication deal, they wouldn't care about the ratings anyway. Look at the ratings for the CW shows. CBS has people paying for the shows, so they don't care that shows like e.g. Dynasty has a demo rating of barely 0.2.



That's always a sign you might be in trouble if your dashboard is on fire...

I am not experienced in understanding ratings, but a few things have stood out to me since this move. While I understand Magnum is not completely CBS owned so it is important to do what is necessary to help the show, I still believe Macgyver got the short end of the stick in all of this and shouldn't have received a shorter season and been sent to mid-season. In saying that, does anyone have any info on the following:

1. From what I see the shows now on Monday have not seen the ratings Magnum did in the same slot?
2. Are the ratings Magnum is getting now equal to what Macgyver saw at the earlier timeslot?
3. Does it seem H5O is not achieving the same ratings it did in the 9pm hour?

I can't help but wonder if maybe H50 is nearing its end in the next year so they are trying to save Magnum and will keep Macgyver back to Friday?

Just a few thoughts..If anyone has insights on ratings, that would be great.

Just a few thoughts..If anyone has insights on ratings, that would be great.

1. Magnum had an average demo-rating of 0.89 and 5.99 million live-viewers on Monday 9pm last year. After three episodes, "All Rise" has 0.63 (demo) and 5.65 (million live-viewers) at the moment. So yes, it's doing worse and the drop that usually happens in Spring hasn't even started yet. I doubt the show gets a full season order.

2. At the moment, Magnum has an average demo-rating of 0.60 and 6.25 million live-viewers. It's been 3 episodes and the ratings have been rising this week, so it can get better - or worse. It's doing better in audience, but a lot worse in demo than last season. For comparison: MacGyver had 0.70 (demo) and 6.11 (million live-viewers).

3. Ratings usually drop every year. Yes, H50 has lower ratings than last season, but the drop is really small. It's hard to say if it would have been different if it stayed at 9pm.


If you're interested, I wrote an entire blog post section this Friday about the ratings of all CBS crime shows at the moment; predicting which one might be cancelled and soon making room for MacGyver tongue.gif
