    Those numbers are really bad for TSC.

  • Eugenius

    Missing repeat ?

  • Ram510

    They news to renew Rules of Engagement (even if it’s scheduled on Saturday) cause web though it only got a 2.2 that same 2.2 was one of the highest ratings of the entire night.

    Funny how TBBT got a 3.1 in a repeat at 9 a couple weeks ago.

    Scandal still a toss up…

  • Dennis

    @ SID The numbers are really bad for every cw show, not just TSC lol

  • Lane

    I only see TVD lasting two more seasons.

    Poor Scandal can’t catch a break. Good for Grey’s.

  • Cliff Macke

    AWAKE is such a well written, directed and the acting is top notch…on any other network…or even cable it would have been a hit…too bad such a good show will get the AX because nobody will watch it on NBC.

  • AsTheWorld

    Scandal is getting Body of Proof numbers on a thursday? It’s canned!

  • Skylar

    Scandal really isnt doing that great considering the lead in it gets. GCB did better.

  • Oliver

    I suspect ABC will move Revenge to Sundays and put an extra hour of comedy at 10pm.

  • Beckham

    Greys did well because it didn’t really have much competition. POI really is its main competition. Next week will be the real test.

  • Phil

    I wanted TSC down and TVD. Oh well…

  • Phil

    TVD up I meant

  • Lane

    Hey ROE is the second highest rated show tonight behind Greys so its not thaaaaat bad.

  • Me

    @Michael, I’m just wondering if people will remember that the Friday night shows are back. I wonder if that was last night’s problem.

  • Skylar

    @Phil: you’re a dumbass.

  • Michael

    Kathy Bates and Ashley Judd have senior citizens as fans of their respective shows lol.

  • Ingmar

    Nice for Grey’s!

  • SJ

    Man, ABC should have just kept Private Practice after Grey’s Anatomy…

  • Leondre

    Wý did Greý’s end at 10:01 @
