The holidays are right around the corner, and many of our shows are leaving us until next year, but there are still quite a few programs to discuss. The Big Bang Theory continues to rule Thursday nights, while Arrow seems to be battling a bit of a holiday slump.
After a very light Thanksgiving week, most of our shows were back in force to make their presence felt before the holiday break. The Walking Dead hit its midseason finale with predictably huge numbers, while Once Upon a Time and American Horror Story: Asylum began to bounce back after slumps.
The holiday season is upon us, and that means our TV schedule is slimming out a bit. Most of our shows had Thanksgiving week off, but there's still plenty to talk about. American Horror Story tried to brave the holiday week and paid for it, while Once Upon A Time got a big rebound and Revolution stopped falling. And you can probably guess how The Walking Dead did.
We're very near the holiday break now, and some shows are already leaving us, but there's still plenty to talk about in TV. The Big Bang Theory once again set a record, dominating the whole week, while The Walking Dead slumped but still stayed on top, and Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue got some unwelcome news.
It was another big week for some TV shows, while others slip further and further into obscurity. The Big Bang Theory once again set a high in viewers, while The Walking Dead continued to dominate Sunday night. But things weren't so good for shows like 666 Park Avenue, Last Resort and even Beauty and the Beast, all of which are slipping as we head toward the holiday break.
We're about two months into the 2012-2013 TV season, and it's getting easier to tell which shows will be sticking around and which ones probably won't make the cut. On ABC, both 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort are struggling, while Elementary is making a case for another season at CBS. Meanwhile, there is no question at all about the futures of The Walking Dead and The Big Bang Theory.
In the lead-up to Halloween horror shows continued to rule the cable airwaves. The Walking Dead and American Horror Story had dominating nights once again, while on broadcast the usual suspects (The Big Bang Theory and Once Upon A Time) put up more strong numbers.
Last week, the big story was The Walking Dead's stellar season two debut. This week, American Horror Story returned for its own record-breaking performance. Meanwhile Arrow stayed strong, Big Bang Theory kept dominating Thursday nights, and Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue both continued to struggle.
It was big week for new and returning shows. Over on The CW, Arrow had a very promising premiere, and Beauty and the Beast got off to a pretty good start. Meanwhile The Walking Dead had a huge opening night, and things got worse for 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort.
Last season, The Walking Dead opened and closed its second year with record-setting numbers for a basic cable drama. Now the season three numbers are in, and they're enough to make even the broadcast shows quake with fear.
