The Question Results Through 10/2/14


Here are the standings through October 2 for the ratings prediction game The Question. Since none of the October 2 premieres were on ABC, I think I'm fairly safe including it as an "under," but I will revise tonight or early tomorrow if any of them adjusts up to 1.5.

I tried to double-check on people only missing one game to make sure I wasn't omitting one, but error is very possible since there's much more to sift through this year. (Not that I'm complaining!) Please let me know if something looks fishy.

Back on Sunday for what should be six or seven more games over ten days. The volume of games will drastically decrease after October 14, but I'll be more specific about that on the next standings update in ~2 weeks.

I'm weirdly disappointed that there are no super-lopsided victories so far. I always enjoy it when there are two correct guesses and twenty wrong ones. A 13-24 result isn't entertaining enough, people!

Spot said...

I am much happier with myself than usual! I still have two losses that annoy me greatly. One was the Selfie/MLS one which was soo damn close. I always hate loosing those especially when I was so much in doubt because it really comes down to coin flip. The other one, and the one I am more furious with myself, is the NCIS New Orleans, since I had it right and was reasonably convinced but then came back to change it to wrong. Grr. The DWTS and Madam Secretary ones were honest misses, no complains there

But still, I am happy with me so far, I don't think I've ever done so well in these before.

Spot said...

I have NEVER been over 50%! This is a great accomplishment for me!

Spot said...

Yay! I now have 10 points!!!

Spot said...

So many of the new shows feel like they'll struggle to make it to sweeps. How much of this is Kevin Reilly's doing?

Spot said...

NBC's lack of depth is showing up.


Their pilot development was very poor. Marry Me and State of Affairs will be nothing but timeslot hits (there is zero interest compared to Blacklist) and once The Voice goes past its prime, it's today's FOX all over again


Chicago PD fans, for instance, can easily, relax, the show is at 1.5 after two episodes but has no chance of being canceled.


At least they will beat FOX on scripted average too after years holding the fourth place.

Spot said...

By that logic, The Flash should be in the post-Arrow slot. The Messengers fits better tonally with Arrow, and we already know The 100 is only running 16 episodes for season two. iZombie feels like a Vampire Diaries or Originals lead-out.

Spot said...

As a viewer, I can say that season 5 of The Vampire Diaries was a hot mess. I could see the struggle on screen to connect the disparate plotlines and tie them together by season's end. I thought with how provocative the finale was, the viewers that dropped off as the Year 5 went on would come back since they "killed" 2 core characters and brought one back.


I wouldn't be surprised to see a bump next week, though, for The CW's Thursday. The network had no momentum beforehand, so with the new eyes for The Flash, Arrow, et al. I think a tiny bounce is possible.

Spot said...

That's the thing with Jane the Virgin for me. What I hear is, "It's surprisingly good for a CW show," which is the definition of damning-with-faint-praise. And The Carrie Diaries got the same kind of reception before its debut. But if a prequel property that had a tonally compatible lead-in could barely eke out a season 2 (in a network season that had many a megabomb), should we think Jane has better odds?

Spot said...

That would be a possible pairing in that The 100 is operating on a short order (I believe 16 episodes). And since it's not "DC proper" if I recall right, there's less chance of viewers having the "oversaturation" response.
