Isn't the Matlock audience pretty much dead by this point?

I thought it was replaced by NCIS.

Apparently, not. It shows how much 'The Office' sucks when a 20+ year old show whose star is dead is more popular than a show currently in production.

The Office was a repeat, as was Parks and Rec.

I don't know why he's laughing, that Matlock rerun probably got more viewers than he does on cable.

I never saw Matlock in the original run, but as a late 20-something, for whatever reason, I enjoy it.

Same way I enjoy Murder, She Wrote.

So my hats off to Cleveland.

taxandspend: Was this done this past Thursday? Because besides Community, everything was reruns.

Whoever at NBC decided to delay Revolution and The Voice into March should never be allowed to work in television again.


Even though I never paid much attention to The Voice, I have to agree with you. Also why in the hell do they keep showing reruns of their most popular shows?

Because repeats get better rating than the original shows they cancelled.

what do you, mean? I recall, that  Comedy Central did overkill of showing reruns of the first two seasons of

the Chapelle show when  it wasn't aware if he would return. It got to the point I couldn't stand it anymore.

No, not yet.  They could do this i West Palm Beach and half the population would think they had died and gone to heaven, though.

I was talking about this in the FWC thread. It was odd that Matlock was randomly on and I didn't know that it was just a regional thing. I ended up watching it because it was such a fricking random thing to have on.

/where's my expressway

IN West Palm Beach.  IN.

Why are they mixing in new episodes of the Office and Parks and Recreation one week, and then showing reruns the next week? Stuff like that kills the momentum of a show.
 
2013-03-02 09:23:38 PM
In 2006, I spent the entire year decompressing, and watchiing Matlock two hours each day.
 
2013-03-02 09:47:50 PM
Maybe this means NBC can start showing Hockey again during the week. They don't own the rights to anything better

At some point, NBC should just raid USA and start stealing stuff. White Collar is formulaic, but miles away better than any other NBC drama.

=================================================

It does amaze me that NBCU owns NBC and USA. For all the awesomeness that's on USA, you'd think they'd find something decent to put on NBC. But, alas, no.

Course, USA is pretty much all dramas and the comedies are in the toilet ratings-wise at NBC.

New episodes with reruns is ideal to just taking the show off the air completely for several months.
Revolution aired its last new episode on November 26th. It comes back March 25th. NBC did the same thing with The Event and it only lasted one season.
The Voice season three finale aired December 17th. It comes back March 25th. In comparison, The X Factor finished on Fox on December 20th and American Idol started January 16th.
Grimm aired it's last new episode November 16th. It finally comes back next week.


Or maybe they could just air the entire season and then air it again in reruns during the summer like they used to before the last writers strike? fark this half seasons 3-6 mo apart bs and especially fark the season x.0 and season x.5 dvd sets... I mean yeah if the superbowl or oscars or olympics are on another channel, sure, show a rerun, but jeez.

What a Cleveland Affiliate might look like.

TheHumanCannonball: I never saw Matlock in the original run, but as a late 20-something, for whatever reason, I enjoy it.

Same way I enjoy Murder, She Wrote.

So my hats off to Cleveland.


It's written for older, mature viewers. So it has to have a coherent story-line, and not just quick camera cuts and scene changes.

/Get the hell off my lawn.

I'm guessing here, having not actually watched either show.
 
2013-03-02 11:35:37 PM
Hell I'd rather watch old reruns of Matlock than half of the crap that's on tv these days.

There was a new Community this week?  The local TV listings showed it was a rerun.  Maybe that's part of NBC's problem if they're not giving local TV listings the right info.  This would now make three of the four episodes this season that were listed incorrectly here.

/off to Hulu

taxandspend: I blame Sex and the City for that trend. I believe that was the first major program to spilt a season into halves and now the trend won't end.


Huh, i woulda guessed Battlestar Galactica and the writers strike.

Attention 1600 PENN writers:

Get a way for Bill Pullman to make a large drawn out speech at the end of every episode to recap what happened and make it spook his famous Indepence day speech.  Have it be a running gag and people may watch.

But they probably wont cause Sitcoms and reality TV are for the Brain dead.   I actually feel like Pro Wretling is on par or higher than most of the crap TV networks put out now.

Fixed that for you.

/Seriously tho, can NBC MAKE a good decision or will they burst into spiders or magnetically attract every knife in a one hundred mile radius? Or both.

1600 Penn should rightfully be a sequel to Independence Day. I mean it can still be a sitcom, just change the setting to post Independence Day and the effort to rebuild the world.

White Collar was good but season 4 came back from hiatus and the magic was gone. bored. boring. dull.

Get the FARK out of my head.  The first lady died in Independence Day and NBC owns the rights to Fresh Prince so Will Smith and the kid who played his son could be cut into the title.
