Thursday Ratings: Sluggish Bow For CBS’ ‘McCarthys’ as ‘Big Bang’ Hits Season Lows

Originally posted on Variety:

CBS had an unspectacular premiere for its Thursday comedy lineup, with “The Big Bang Theory” easily topping the night but at season lows and “The McCarthys” looking lackluster in its debut behind the solid “Two and a Half Men.” ABC, off to a hot start on the night this fall opposite football on CBS, stayed on top in young adults with “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder.”

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, ABC opened the night lower than usual with the annual special “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” (1.7/6 in 18-49, 6.2 million viewers overall), which placed second for the 8 o’clock hour and was down half a ratings point from its performance on the same night a year ago. It was followed by “Scandal” (3.0/9 in 18-49, 9.1 million viewers overall) and “How to Get Away With Murder” (2.7/8 in 18-49, 8.5 million viewers overall)…

Bat bonanza in West Virginia

Originally posted on U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Northeast Region:

Today, you’re hearing from Emily Peters, who hails from the little town of Alfred, New York. She graduated from Delaware Valley College in May 2013, earning a B.S. in zoo science. Within a single year, she has lived in three different states, building her career in a way she didn’t expect- through environmental education and outreach. She now makes her home in the fourth state, as an Appalachian Forest Heritage Area AmeriCorps, or AFHA, member serving at the Service’s West Virginia Field Office in Elkins. While she’s in the mountain state, she hopes to make a difference in the community by developing strong education and outreach programs about local environmental issues, particularly on non-native invasive and endangered species.

Arrow Season 3 Ep 4 (TV Show Review)

Originally posted on Shadowhawk's Shade:

Last week I mentioned that Arrow is really good at keeping secrets close to its chest, until the right amount of critical mass is reached to unveil said secrets. The big mystery of who was bankrolling Sebastian Blood last year was a terrific reveal, as was the whole subplot about breaking to Thea the news that Malcolm Merlyn is her blood-father, not Robert Queen. And this season, it looks like the big mystery is “Who killed Sara?”. We’ve seen some development so far, not entirely satisfactory, but it has been a good source of background tension to the show and things look set to intensify even more.

Nyssa al Ghul made her season 3 debut on the show in this week’s “The Magician“, which also happens to be the show’s 50th episode. I’d expected some really great things from the show in this episode, but it kind of…

In the CBS hitcom’s Nov. 6 episode, “The Prom Equivalency,” the gang recreates a high school prom on the roof of the guys’ apartment building. But as with any prom, jitters are to be had — namely by Sheldon, who feels pressure to participate in all the typical romantic traditions.

I'm still playing with the overall concept of this blog, it's not a news site, you won't find "scoops" or "breaking news" here. (For those I would suggest visiting What you will find is a fun take on WWE goings-on, and an angle here and there I think would be fun or beneficial. I have no experience professionally in the business, but as a fan for 20+ years I think I have some good ideas. Let me know what you think!
