How do you feel about arrow's declining ratings?

Last year (Season 4), only two network shows didn’t see their ratings decline.  Only.  Two.  Arrow was one of them.  (The other was Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.)

This year (Season 5), we’ve seen Arrow’s broadcast ratings decline while its online viewing has gone UP.  Personally, I don’t care HOW people are watching the show so long as they’re watching.  So to answer your question, it doesn’t bother me one bit that Arrow’s broadcast ratings have gone down given how its online viewership has compensated.

NBC Renews ‘Law & Order: SVU’ for Season 19

The long-running Dick Wolf police procedural, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” will continue to be long-running.

NBC announced Friday that it’ll be renewing the show for its 19th season.

The show stars Lt. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) as a veteran of the Special Victims Unit of the New York City Police Department, which investigates sexually-based crimes.

The drama also stars Ice T as Sgt. Odafin “Fin” Tutuola, Kelli Giddish as Det. Amanda Rollis, Peter Scanavino as Det. Dominick “Sonny” Carisi and Raul Esparza as Assistant District Attorney Rafael Barba.

“SVU” recently reached a milestone few TV shows ever reach: the 400th episode. It was directed by Hargitay and aired on Feb. 8, 2017.

In the criminal justice system, sexually-based crimes are considered especially ratings worthy. The 400th episode seized the best numbers the show had since September.

Among current series, NBC renewed “Great News,” which joins “The Blacklist,” “Blindspot,” “Taken” and three of four of Dick Wolf’s “Chicago” shows. On the flip side, the network has canceled “Timeless,” “Emerald City,” “The Blacklist: Redemption” and “Powerless.”

NBC has also picked up several other new series including “Good Girls,” “AP Bio,” “Rise” sci-fi drama “Reverie” and “The Brave,” previously titled “For God and Country.”

For musical fans, the network will be adapting the classic “Jesus Christ Superstar” for a live musical on Easter 2018.

Benson and Stabler Are Back Together! Mariska Hargitay Has Sweet SVU Reunion with Chris Meloni

Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson just can’t stay apart for long!

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit costars Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni thrilled “Bensler” fanatics with a photo from their recent reunion, clearly they’re still feeling the love leftover from Valentine’s Day.

“And then that happened… Just when I thought Valentine’s Day was over,” the 53-year-old actress captioned a photo posted Wednesday of Meloni planting a kiss on her cheek while she smiled.

The nostalgia-inducing snap racked up over 118,000 likes in 14 hours.

The duo lead the first 12 seasons of SVU together, but split up as fictional partners when Meloni left the long-running series in 2011. Hargitay remains on the show, which is now in its 18th season.

In real life, however, Hargitay and Meloni remain close friends. Most recently, the costars got together for a cute selfie around the holidays.

Meloni first shared the pic on his account with the caption “Friends at Xmas.”

Hargitay reposted the smiling shot with a slew of hashtags: “#ChrisMas #ChrisKringle #AVeryBenslerChristmas #TheChrisWhoStoleChristmas #HomeMeloni #HolidayClassics #BenslerTogether.”

Friends at Xmas.
