Thank you, Dani.

LMAO!!!

This is so great. Yeah, and this is why ABC ranked THIRD in November sweeps, for example?

"According to Nielsen live-plus-same-day averages through Sunday (25 of 28 nights), NBC led in adults 18-49 with a 2.6 rating, followed by CBS (2.2), ABC (2.0) and Fox (1.7).  NBC was slightly ahead of CBS in adults 25-54 (3.3 to 3.2), while the Eye’s overall audience of 10.3 million put it well ahead of ABC and NBC (both 7.9 million)." (this is from Variety)

This is also why ABC is gonna end THIRD overall for the whole season at best? Well behind NBC that is poised to win the whole season (yes) and CBS?

Oh and for enlightening facts on why NBC is going to win, here, from yesterday on LA Times.

Do they seriously think that people, and more importantly advertisers, buy any of the crap they’re trying to spin here? Quite a humorous attempt.

Thank you Ales!!!! This is what I’ve been trying to tell some but no one believed me lol. NBC is kicking ABC’s arse and by next season with the way things are going Fox is going to beat ABC.

ABC is great at spin but advertisers are not dumb and they can smell bullshit from miles away. I mean it’s there job to promote and get people to by into bullshit so I think they will be able to recognize it when they see it.

They sure will, mainly because they won’t bother with ABC’s marketing press releases, and they’ll only bother with Nielsen numbers. Which are those reported above. ABC will end the season AT BEST in third place. And yes, at this rate, Fox WILL surpass it next season. The numbers are above for sweeps AND for the overall season in the link. Numbers are numbers, there’s no changing them.

More importantly, it is becoming increasingly clear that to win network ratings, sports programs are an ESSENTIAL part of the package. And ABC lost out exactly on that essential part that it needed the most, when it bid for Thursday night football rights and lost. Not that it ever stood a chance. ABC has no money, no competitive offers can be made. CBS always KNEW it was going to bring home the goodies, and that’s why they had programmed to move all their strong Thursday shows to Tuesday from the beginning of this season… they knew they were going to change next season anyway so they moved the whole package around, in order to have the slot ready for next season and have everything stable on another night already. Unlike ABC, CBS DOES calculate its moves WELL in advance and with great skill.

ABC is on an inexorable down curve, and given they kept Lee as, again, they had no money to make a competitive offer to anyone else and people are FLEEING from there, and no one wants to go to ABC, they’ll need a LOT more than this quite humorous attempt at spinning things, in order to sell advertising space for next season.

ABC has no money? Those of us who watch OUAT would strongly disagree.

You mean you believe in fairy tales? What they do on OUAT doesn’t mean they have money at all.

They are cutting budget left and right. Fact that can be checked in the balance sheets. This is all fact, not conjecture. Whatever they do on that show (And by the way that  is NOT a show with a high budget) doesn’t change the reality of numbers. *shrug*

First, don’t mock a show you don’t watch. I don’t mock Scandal and yes, I’ve watched it.
Second, it’s an expensive show to put on. Ask anyone involved with it. Even its creators have said it. Most of what they do is CGI. That’s not cheap.

"Bleeding Through" recap/my thoughts

This won’t be long, just a few things I need to get out there, see what you guys think about Sunday’s episode:

-I love the new relationship Regina and Snow have.  They’ve come such a long way and I loved how they aired it all out, especially about Cora.  It was sincere, genuine and Lana and Ginny were flawless. 

-Belle. Belle. My goodness. I watched her scene with Regina a bunch of times, it is still incredible.  

-Belle’s wardrobe/makeup.  Did this go un noticed-? She’s all serious about figuring this craziness out, she’s just like ‘I don’t give a fuck about my makeup and I’m just going to wear turtlenecks.  I’ve got better shit to do, and my man’s being held up in a fucking cage so it’s not like I need to really care about the way I look right now.” Plus, she’s a total badass.

-Excuse me but WHAT was the point of Hook in this episode? He literally added NOTHING to this episode. NUH-THHHING. 

-For the record, and I need to get this out, I am NOT a CaptainSwan shipper solely because I think it’s way too soon after Neal.  But I don’t hate any ships so I respect that people do ship them. I just don’t care much about them, to be honest. And the Neal hate from the CSers has got to stop.  He’s dead, can we just stop?

-That being said, I squealed when Regina and Robin kissed.  She TOTALLY deserves happiness after everything she’s been through.  And they are cute.

-Cora and Ava are never getting “Mother of the Year” awards. 

-Already mentioned the Rumple/Zelena scene wasn’t hot.  I watched it again, reluctantly, and still didn’t see much hotness about it.  And her moaning was annoying as fuck.

-If I like ANYTHING Zelena has done, it’s the suit she put Rumple in. Dear lord, Bobby has killed me. It was hard trying to follow the whole scene at the end where they figure out Z’s plan when my brain is mush from looking at him.

-Final thought: I know we didn’t get any Rumbelle, but I love how strong and powerful they are as individuals BECAUSE of each other.  You can totally see it.  I think Belle always had that “strong smart independent badass” inside her but I think Rumple’s strength and love have totally brought it out.  And on the flip side, Rumple is standing his ground despite being controlled and he’s got something to fight for.  Belle really HAS made him stronger.  Even though I always want them together in episodes, this time I really felt it was just as important to show their power as individuals because of their love.

Edit: Did I say it wouldn’t be long? Sorry!
