TV Premiere And Follow Up Ratings Notes For Monday, September 30, 2013: We Are Men (CBS), Mom (CBS), The Blacklist (NBC), Hostages (CBS)

You might notice that I'm not going to post about Sleepy Hollow (FOX), and that's because the show is still solid as a rock three weeks in.  Unless it has a major ratings crash, which is unlikely to happen, FOX might as well renew it RIGHT EFFING NOW!

We Are Men (CBS, Mondays at 8:30pm ET)

6.396 million Overall Viewers
2.0/5 in the 18-49 Demo

On paper, this looked like a great idea, with the cast involved.  In promo, it looked terrible.  In actuality, not many people watched.  In fact, these are DOA sitcom numbers on CBS.  The real question now is what the over/under is on episodes aired?  I'm going to put the line at 4.  You can add your guesses in the comments.

Mom (CBS, Mondays at 9:30pm ET)

6.927 million Overall Viewers
2.2/5 in the 18-49 Demo

Yeah, this show is in trouble.  All of the creators of popular TV shows on CBS are seeing their new offerings fall relatively flat.  I thought the Pilot wasn't terrible, so I'm going to watch a few more to see if I can get into the CBS brand of comedy.  CBS does not like 2.2s in the 18-49 demo for comedies, so it's already on the down slope to cancellation.  If it stabilizes exactly here, I think it could get to stick around for political reasons, but that's about the only reason it might.  If it drops lower than this next week, you can forget it.

The Blacklist (NBC, Mondays at 10pm ET)

12.900 million Overall Viewers (First Half Hour)
3.8/10 in the 18-49 Demo

11.264 million Overall Viewers (Second Half Hour)
3.3/9 in the 18-49 Demo

This show clearly benefits from its lead in, but it's a solid, if unambitious show.  There's nothing sophisticated about it, and that works just fine for most audiences, especially those getting ready for bed.  We'll see if there's a noticeable drop next week, but this show looks about as renewable as it gets, right now.

Hostages (CBS, Mondays at 10pm ET)

6.238 million Overall Viewers (First Half Hour)
1.6/4 in the 18-49 Demo

5.747 million Overall Viewers (Second Half Hour)
1.4/4 in the 18-49 Demo

Poor Jerry Bruckheimer.  Poor CBS.  I'll let them wipe their tears, from this disaster, with their respective millions and billions.  Thanks for reading.
