    Another article on the same site breaks it down further for Nashville - all good news for my new favourite show!

    I feel kind of insignificant/slighted now that I'm 50 and advertisers only care about the 18-49 demographic. :drama:

    I think I still spend more dollars than your average 20 something.

    Up here in Canada we feel even more slighted. The 18-49 demographic still rules the roost due to US influences, even though the original Boomers are by far more numerous and lucrative. The Baby Boom Echo up here just was not significant - more like a super-pale imitation. Marketers don't seem to be able to think for themselves here though, so whatever is happening in the US is what drives things here too.

    ^ Yup! Also excited that it doesn't conflict with anything else in my viewing schedule. Though ... from the brief previews & writeups I've seen, I'm surprised it's not in the 10:00 slot.

    If nothing else it should open up a few new levels in the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game. :D

    I literally have nothing else to watch on Monday nights. So I will most certainly be watching.

    Did anyone watch? Since its supposed to repeat Friday night at 9p (at least according to my local guide), I decided to wait to read some reviews first knowing I can catch it on Friday. I've read that its pretty violent and gory, and I really don't like like horror/gore, etc., but I love Kevin Bacon ... so I'm torn as to watching. :lol: Was it really as squeemish as the things I've read, or really no worse than your typical murderer type stories?

    I enjoyed "The Following" and will keep watching. It's a bit gory but I don't think it's really any worse than anything else on TV.

    The only thing is, I have to watch "Being Human" on SYFY when it repeats later in the night since they are both on at 9:00.

    Really enjoying "Continuum" on SYFY too.

    As AliasJohnDoe says, I don't think the gore level is any higher than a lot of other network shows out there -- although, again, I'm surprised this is a 9:00 show, it really feels more like 10:00. And at least the gore "makes sense" -- it's about a serial killer for pete's sake, you gotta expect some blood. However I did have to close my eyes in the scene
    when they went to the prison guard's house. As soon as I saw all those missing dog posters I knew what was coming. I'm with the young agent: I can handle watching human-against-human violence, but human violence against animals turns my stomach.

    I liked it very much. It was a thriller in the best sense of the word. I think some of the other actors have some catching up to do to get to the same level as Bacon and Purefoy, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

    However I'm glad it's a mid-season starter: this is the kind of show that will work better with shorter seasons IMO. If they try to string it out over multiple 22-episode seasons it will I think get ridiculous. But as it stands now ... :watch:

    If The Wedding Band is canceled, does that mean Brian Austen Green may return to Happy Endings? I prefer Penny with him over whatshisface.

    ABC hasn't made it official yet, but the cast of Don't Trust the B believes they have been cancelled - US Weekly article.

    Interesting comments by James Van Der Beek re Neilson/scheduling/when people watch. I thought there was a way to account for pvring, but is there? And what about online viewing? And do those two alternate ways to view give the same breakdown of demographics?

    I've also always thought networks were playing with fire when they move shows around the schedule. There's a lot of stations to scroll through, and if people don't know where to find a show, they certainly aren't going to keep watching it.

    So disappointed that POI & Elementry are in reruns so soon after returning from their holiday break. And I'm looking forward to The Americans. Can't believe AI is still so popular!

    Was anyone watching Last Resort, which is now over and canceled? I'm so confused. Why did the senator dude kill himself last week? Why did Kylie kill that guy in the hotel room (I even forget who he was?)? And did Kylie really kill the president at the end and if she did .... why??

    I need to pay more attention when I watch my shows. I miss so much all the time. :shuffle:

    Last summer when I first read about "Last Resort", I was interested.

    But then ABC scheduled it at 8PM on Thursday's against "The Vampire Diaries" and "The Big Bang Theory" which ruined the chances I'd ever see it.

    I just found out about "Apt 23" by watching an SNL skit from last night. I'm so crushed! :wuzrobbed: I FLOVE that show. :( I knew it was only a matter of time, but I hope they at least burn off the episodes or make them available online. Meh.
