Ironic that MJF and Sean Saves the World will be replaced post-Olympics by Hollywood Game Night, which is exec produced by Sean Hayes.

Also funny that NBC probably couldn't have done worse if they had kept Go On.  Or even Outsourced.

They're gonna give Leno a prime time show aren't they?  That's exactly the idiotic shit NBC would pull.

Before they had moved it to 10:30 when they wanted 3 hours of comedies, the numbers were actually pretty good. And after they moved it, it had one of the higher DVR numbers around.

Yeah that was a puzzling move.  Remember when NBC could do no wrong with their comedies?  Such a long time ago...

I think they buckled under the pressure of people bitching about a show about outsourcing jobs at the same time the economy bombed. It was a pretty good show with likable characters.

I dunno, it seemed to get critically slammed (I never watched it so I'm purely recounting things I've read) when it came out. Not to say that matters too much (see 2.5men & BBT) but I guess low rated shows that are critically acclaimed may stand a better chance due to DVD/merch sales and prestige

The problem is that the critics get to watch the pilot and must base their opinions on that.  In the pilot the protagonist moved to India and basically did every stupid stereotypical thing one would expect a white American from the Midwest would do in India.  The idea was not that they were making fun of South Asians, but that they were making fun of the American who had poor preconceived notions about South Asians, and needed to adapt to his situation.  But maybe I was wrong in interpreting the show that way.

I've watched something like 25-50 episodes of the show over the course of its run. I always meant to watch more but I could never remember its timeslot.

The thing about these USA shows is that, for as long as they last and as many fans as they have to have...you'd be shocked at how often they STILL fly under the radar. I NEVER see them being brought up in public. It's weird. Even amongst nerds on the internet, nobody ever discusses them.

I have watched just about every USA series from the past 10 years, and liked nearly all of them. Psych and Monk have been my favorites. When I watch a show, I watch every single episode in order like my life depends on it.

Daytime talk shows are a tough market.  Especially if you have a dubious level of fame, like being on Real Housewives and Apprentice: Martha Stewart.

It's the weakest performer out of the other CBS Thursday comedies, but it doesn't get particularly bad ratings. So as of this point

I always trust commercials that air in September as being accurate months later, so I just assumed it was still the #1 new hit show on CBS.

The Crazy Ones isn't produced by CBS, is expensive and the ratings have been slowly slipping lower and lower. Right now, it's dead.

A chance exists though if it dies on CBS, it could be moved to FOX since I think they produce it.

And holy shit, Unforgettable is still on the air?!?! I thought that show had been cancelled twice!

The problem with "The Crazy Ones" (other than the fact that it sucks and you can tell Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Geller don't want to be there) is that it doesn't have very wide appeal*. Look at something like "The Big Bang Theory": I'm not a fan, but I understand if someone is and it can appeal to different kinds of audiences. Compare that to something like "The Crazy Ones", which is clearly meant to appeal mostly to baby boomers, who are a shrinking audience.

Oh, and "Elementary" is switching nights next season, which is for the best.

*I could hazard a guess that this is also why a show like "Two and a Half Men", which still has legs, has taken a dip in the ratings. Like TCO, it's not going to appeal to a wider audience-at this point, people have either finally realized the show sucks and it only appeals to the Chad Numbers of the world. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends next season or the season after next.

It was cancelled once, but then they brought it back as a mid season/summer show.

Elementary and Big Bang are moving nights. With CBS getting Thursday Night Football, they needed to move them.

It's like this.
The Crazy ones would be a hit for FOX
It would be a solid hit for ABC
It would be MASSIVELY HUGE hit for NBC

For CBS, it's battling for the bottom of the comedy ratings ladder and in trouble of getting knocked off. If Two and a Half Men ends (it should, it's old and desperate) and the new comedies bomb out, it may make it but price is everything.

Crazy ones was doing 2.6 to 2.7, it's down to 1.7 and sinking.

Who in NBC is David Walton fucking to keep getting these TV shows?  About a Boy is his 4th try in 4 years...all on NBC.  His episodes aired record is 13.  This week...we see if he has something that can break that record!

The ratings were not that great, so it's not surprising. I really dug the show, though. Hopefully Helix is picked up, otherwise I have nothing on Syfy.
