33 TV Characters We Still Can't Accept Are Gone

I don't know how long ago this was made, but I think Gideon, from Criminal Minds was a really big blow to the viewers. I mean, you have to admit, some of us were wishing Gideon would come back.

NCIS Season 12 Report Card: Grade It!

As for the ratings this season....we've had quite a few series low in viewers and demo. And overall ratings isn't looking so good either. This show hit it's peak in Season 10 and has been downhill ever since. But hey, apparently the show is doing fine even with these series low. :-)

Never claimed to know the actress personally unlike those who have been throwing their tantrums over her quitting her job. But since you brought it up, perhaps you should look further into the comments of those who claim to be her fans. It'll be interesting to see what you come up with. The fact is - it's been TWO years since she quit. the constant whining and hijacking of EVERY single article, social media post etc regarding NCIS by ziva fanatics, tiva wishers and Mote insisters has, in fact, driven away more fans of the show itself (& some who actually LIKED ziva and cote) than the storylines the character was in. oh and newsflash - by continuing to comment you yourself are a part of your last sentence. It's pretty much what makes and keeps a fanbase active on social media.

Wow, all I did was mention that this #1 most watched show had series low in demo & viewers in Season 12. The last time this show had these series low in demo was in S2. Yes, other shows have had their ratings fall but nothing like this show has. If this show has improved since Cote left, why haven't the ratings shown that?

The ratings DO show that - they are stable The ratings ALSO show that viewing patterns have changed across the board. It's that fact that you and your cohorts refuse to acknowledge. Until you guys do, your comments (& glee) about NCIS's ratings without cote are pointless and hate-filled and deserve to be called out as such. for years, you and your buds thumped your chests over being 'true fans' of the show. Guess the 'true fans' have been identified and for the most part, it's not the ziva/tiva/mote crowd. At least not the fanatical part, that is.

The difference is, if Harmon or Weatherly choose a different path for their career and their personal life, I would accept and respect the decision to move on and I would move on with my life as well.
I wouldn't throw a two year temper tantrum, hoping the show fails because I didn't get what I wanted from the show.
I wouldn't spend 24/7 on Facebook and Twitter trashing anyone and everyone connected to the show.
I wouldn't make up conspiracy theories about pretend ratings and David McCallum's jealousy.
I would watch the show without them. If I still enjoy it, yay for me.
If I don't enjoy it anymore, I will just walk away. No scorch the earth drama. No "if I don't like anymore, no one else should either".

I look at it as weeding out the posers. The so called fans who watched for one character and/or the nonexistent love story.
The show is now left with the fans who started watching day one and stuck with it no matter who quit and who replaced them.
Of course, I'm one of the old people that doesn't count, I am 50, so even my opinion is irrelevant.

That's okay, chris. I'm about to turn 65, your opinion will become more irrelevant as you age. When NCIS began, I was working 12/7, but a couple of years later a lady turned me on to it and I hit Netflix (maybe Amazon) and caught up in a marathon and have watched it with dedication since. I do wish the ad people would catch on to the fact that us more mature people buy much more than depends and Viagra.
(I've never bought either, but I do buy big screen tvs, electronics, and other high priced stuff that the twenties don't.)

People watch only for Gibbs or Tony, what's the difference if they watched for Ziva? Everyone has a favorite and some of these opinions are getting contradictive when most watch for one person, no matter who it may be.

The point John is the elongated temper tantrum that's been going on since July 2013.

It's pelicular that you say this, AnnSann. As I read further through my notifications and the comments on this website, you as well seem to be having a tantrum. How in fact do you know the actress? It comes across very stifling that you do not like her and you do seem to be harassing anyone that does. For someone that claims to know an actress so personally, why are you degrading her and her choices? Aren't there better things to do in life than put down people? It is a TV show, fictional. Everyone, including you and your comments are taking it as if this is the actual NCIS.

So, those who claimed they didn't watch when Ziva was on , but now do or those who complained the whole time Ziva was on are the real fans?!? And those of us who don't care for Bishop & miss Ziva, an integral character for 8 yrs , aren't fans!? I tried watching these last 2 seasons but had to stop with 6 ep to go this year. Its not because 1 character is gone. Cote is the reason I started watching but I stayed because I grew to love all the characters. The problem for me is there was a charisma and a cohesiveness that is gone now. That is why I can no longer watch. If that's related to Cote being gone or just crappy writing I really don't know. I think its a combo of both. And whether or not Cote being gone is the reason for the ratings being down can't really be proven unless we survey those who have stopped watching. All I know is that the show used to get 21 mil viewers on the 1st night. Now they are getting around 15 mil. The Dovekeepers, (which so many of you like to point out as being awful) received over 9 mil viewers the 1st night and about 7 mil on night 2. Wow, 21-15=6 mil! So maybe that loss in viewers for NCIS are those of us who stopped watching when Cote left. But sure, if you like to think it's just the ratings becoming stable and leveling out, go for it. Kinda a coincidence that the numbers lost in NCIS viewers equals the number who watched The Dovekeepers. I'm sure it's not related! But we all know what Gibbs thinks about coincidences!

Well that's to be expected of any aging show. And while the show hit its audience peak in Season 10, the demo started dropping in Season 8. And, really, all you have to do is look at the long list of series who hit their season lows this year. Why should NCIS in its 12th season be exempt from that? Why are TV pundits saying that only a handful of shows will be hitting 2.0 or above next season? The ratings landscape is changing. Why else are networks happy to renew shows averaging 1.1 in the 18 - 49 demo?
What we're really seeing is Nielsen's increasing inability to capture all the viewers watching network content as viewers find other content delivery vehicles.
So, yeah, NCIS is doing fine. And its viewer percentage drop is well within norms for an aging show.
I do wish people would do a little more research (like how about analyzing the ratings for a few other shows in NCIS' genre and/or years on the air), then tell me NCIS is underperforming when compared to other scripted series.

Ahhh yes, the favorite argument of the ziva/tiva crowd. Yet you and your buds refuse to acknowledge the mere idea that the viewing habits have changed period. Pointless argument as always. Your dear favorite and the romance you think made the show a hit are gone. Time to suck it up and either actually be the fan of MW/Tony you like to claim to be outside of your little havens or just let your real colors show already. Those who truly know you aren't fooled by the act since they've already seen what you're capable of.

What does Ziva/TIVA have to do with my comment? Did I mention Ziva or TIVA in my comment? *scratches head* All I did was mention the ratings.

You and your merry band of chicken littles are looking at the ratings in a bubble, ignoring the full picture.
All shows on network television are down 12-15%. That is a fact not some lame excuse for anything. Next season, predictions are that most network shows won't reach a 2.0 in the coveted demo. And all the networks have stopped looking at the live numbers. They are all going with the +3 and the +7.
The Nielsen Co and Madison Ave want to still feel relevant using the over 50 year old system. The fact is, they need to look to the future like all the networks are or they'll be left behind.

Give it up. Anyone who knows you and your arguments knows that ALL of your ratings comments lead back to a gleeful comment about how the ratings prove that their best seasons were with ziva and that 'Gark' or 'Harberg' or whatever you folks are calling them now screwed up by 'selling her out' it's a tired claim that has been debunked far too many times so you, luvtiva, lucy (& all her accounts), ladymris, ash and the rest of them on twitter and whatever board you bash everyone in need to just give it up. The 'haters' in the fandom have been found and exposed. and guess what? it's not those fans that found a Mossad liaison problematic from the start.

Vikings Season 3 Episode 10 Review: The Dead

I was disappointed in the last episode. I couldn't get my teeth into it. It felt rushed

Avatar

With the actress constantly getting PG the writers have to figure a way to deal with it as best they can. Any way they choose/chose would be awkward at best as the show is not a family show to begin with. Lucky next season will be the last as a lot of the quirkiness of the original show wears off and the writers try to figure out new and different things to do with the characters same characters..

Avatar

I don't mind their family stuff I just want to see more of Booth and Brennan together that's why this story is tough because the separation is necessary. I re watched episode and Brennan's part wasn't as bad as I thought but it would have been nice if they could have enjoyed her pregnancy more. Hopefully last two episodes will get them closer

she is one of the worst actresses I have ever had the displeasure of watching

Such lazy writing to go for Iris as 'character who needs work' when SO many other characters need so much more. I mean, I expect it from The Flash fandom but I still can't remember a single time Iris has been whiny or self-involved. Then again, you gave Captain Cold "best villain" completely inexplicably. He's such a mediocre character that is completely one-note and, at the very best, bland. Maybe he'll get better writing on LoT but on The Flash he was little more than a stock character, showing up occasionally when they needed to fill a specific trope.

Great recap for an incredible season of The Flash. It was an incredible season with some outstanding moments. I hope they keep the level of storytelling. ^_^
