  1. So does this mean after the two week easter break there will be new episodes of Castle , Bones , How I Meet Your Monther etc ? cause i am really injoying these seasons of my fave show 🙂

    @Johnson – I understand that the reason given for the Easter ratings break is the same as that for the summer – less people watching. I’m just calling BS on it’s actual purpose. As I said, advertisers still need to know where to spend their money (and how much they should pay), whether 5 million people are watching TV or if 1 million of them have gone on holiday.

  3. @Tasha: we are almost up to date with the US with episodes of HIMYM.
    @Secret Squïrrel: there is a two-week Easter break because traditionally people travel around during the period and spend less time watching TV.

    David, what’s the deal with these “breaks” in ratings? I understand that they don’t count toward end-year totals but they’re still reported and, presumably, advertisers will still take the numbers into consideration when purchasing air-time. So what purpose do they serve?

  5. Will new episodes of Bones and How I Met Your Mother return soon David?

    HIMYM is gone from the schedule and Bones has been repeats for a while now, I think because we got close to the US but not past them… Ever heard of fast-tracking that’s actually fast Seven!?!

  6. Can i ask why How I Met Your Mother was pulled off the air? It was performing well, so why did they have to put Heston’s Mission Impossible on on Thursday night…why not Wednesday night when TV is as slow as paint drying?

    Not happy Seven!!
