  1. Calucci’s Dept. ratings seem to be going from bad to worse. They were getting nines now at 7.5 with a 12 share. Thats what 2018 ratings look like if the shows a hit. Dirty Sally which replaces it would get much better ratings according to Broadcasting magazine. A 17 something for the season but CBS still cancels Sally. Maybe to make room for the series version of Planet of the Apes?

  2. Notice how many of the bottom 10 were on ABC’s once popular Friday night…surprised that “The Brady Bunch” wasn’t there
