I probably should have pushed harder to have this up 6 hours ago, but life is different now. These late posts are going to be a thing now.

VH1 Ratings: 2019

A new year brings a brand new list. With so many shows starting from the outset, this list is going to fill up pretty fast. As usual, I will update this post on a weekly basis, all specials will be located on the bottom and I will continue to bump last year's post until the final show concludes its season [Update: 6/11/19].

I wish I had some comments for this week's numbers, but my time is short and my thoughts are elsewhere.

As far as television goes, the summer season has officially begun. That typically means the cable networks will have their time to shine, but I'm not sure we'll see too much of that this year. Many of the networks have already rolled out their strongest shows over the spring. This summer will probably see the takeover of typical long-running veterans and events that pop up randomly (mostly super early Presidential debates and other breaking news like these ridiculous storms all over the country).

This is the kind of week where I would normally do a full list, but current circumstances in my life have and will continue to keep me away from doing any kind of substantial writing for the near future. Anyway, Game of Thrones hit series and network high ratings for the series finale. It was a bit expected, but now HBO and television as a whole probably laments that they don't have anything that looks like it will catch fire the way few shows have over the last decade. HBO has been fortunate enough to benefit from these mainstream successes for much of the last 20 years. We're in a new era now and it will be a surprise to see any future show become nearly as successful as this one.

The cancellation of Star was by far the most shocking news from the last week. I found it shocking, but my first thought was that the cancellation only made sense if Empire ended next season (FOX made that announcement official yesterday). Going by already released schedules and the habits of networks still to come (CBS and The CW at the time of this post), next fall will see the networks taking a highly conservative route; going with known entities and plotting graceful exits for some long-running shows. Unfortunately, that means everything after January will be a mess with the normal slew of awards shows and sports events plus coverage of the 2020 Presidential primary elections. My view is that the Broadcast networks know that they don't have too much to rely on as far as shows go and they may just try to survive next season by acquiring and promoting as many live events as possible.

It took me until 2:45 this afternoon to realize it's Tuesday. At least this post isn't super late today.

VH1 Ratings: 2018

It's about that time to start the new list for 2018. You know how this goes. All shows appear in the order in which they premiered, the specials appear at the bottom of the list and shows with split seasons are marked under the original listing. The list will be updated at least once per week and shows with 2017 premiere dates but aired episodes in 2018 will be found in the 2017 list (which will also be updated weekly until the conclusion of those seasons) [Updated 5/7/19].

I have never seen one episode of Game of Thrones. Not likely to watch once it's all wrapped up, but these numbers took a big bounce from last week.

I don't have an opinion on much of anything this week. I do question if Married to Medicine LA has done well enough to get another shot, but it might if the plan is to throw it on Friday nights like the regular show.

This past week kicked off the final season of one of the last ratings juggernauts on TV and it featured the resurrection of a show that has been dead for nearly a decade.

Some strange things going on with Martha and Snoop's show. First, they quietly changed the name of it, but they still consider it to be season 3, they meant to premiere it next month, but they are advertising it to come on at a totally different day and time now (at 11pm, which is usually considered to be a burnoff zone for anything on cable that isn't a talk show). I have no idea what any of it means. It will be a challenge just to try to keep track of it.

I could have thrown up a list several hours ago, but there were a few too many shows to talk about this week and I couldn't ignore them.

The biggest news of the week was the announced ending of the long-running series Supernatural, a show that is older than The CW network itself. I also want to note that Freeform probably hoped to see better numbers for their Pretty Little Liars spinoff.

Having a few issues with the photo this week. That isn't important though. The big news of the week is the announcement that the next season of Arrow will be the final season. Since the order is only for 10 episodes, it's likely that the show will wrap before the end of this calendar year.

There were a few premieres and finales last week, but my thoughts are focused on How to Get Away with Murder. Personally, I think the numbers all season have pointed towards the show being canceled. ABC is typically very mum on the fate of their shows, good or bad, and you can't read anything into their silence thus far. If they cancel the show, it will be because they have found something that can comfortably sit in that spot for at least half a season (Preferably the front half). If they renew the show, I'm thinking that it will probably be an announcement for a final season and it may not be for the full 18 episodes either.

The list is super short this week because a lot of networks dodged the Oscars on Sunday while others are getting ready to transition towards their spring lineups.

The Super Bowl was a bit of a disaster (I didn't watch it. I only watch for the game and the matchup wasn't interesting enough for me), The CW dropped their bulk early renewals and VH1 seems to not be pleased with how January turned out for them. In summary, last week is what trying to put on a brave, united front when things behind the scenes are falling apart looks like.

There isn't much to say about the numbers over the last week except that CBS might be wasting their time with Celebrity Big Brother, but because they have the Super Bowl this year, they won't care (they should because I don't believe the game/commercials/halftime show will get the numbers that they expect to get). Also, Cartel Crew is increasingly looking like a one season show.

Going to a list this week because I'm a day late, sick with a cold and all the broadcast shows that returned over the last week basically returned at the numbers they were getting before the winter break.

I'm back for the new year and I've got some premieres to talk about. The broadcast shows aren't back yet, but there's plenty of content on cable to get into.
