FOX Cancels Raising Hope After Four Seasons

Fans are currently mourning the death of  Raising Hope , which has just been  killed by FOX  after running for four seasons. The show has acquired a healthy niche audience over the years, but the emphasis was on the “niche” and not the “healthy,” and unfortunately, the ratings are just no longer there. The show has suffered some hard blows this year, with creator Greg Garcia leaving and it getting bumped to Fridays, usually a fairly obvious death slot. It pulled just a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo this past week, and now will close with an hour long finale on April 4th. Read More... //

TV Ratings: Olympics dominate repeats and Valentine's Day programs

Fast National ratings for Friday, Feb. 14, 2014It's no surprise that the 2014 Winter Olympics dominated television on Friday, Feb. 14. With almost all other networks showing repeats or Charlie Brown specials, there wasn't much chance of toppling the Winter Games.

An average of 19.1 million viewers tuned in to the NBC primetime broadcast.Still, that number dwarfed the nearest competition, a repeat of "Hawaii Five-0" on CBS at 9 p.m. Dismal numbers for new programming were represented by "Enlisted" (1.8 million viewers), "Raising Hope" (1.5 million) and "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
