    Ouch at New Girl at a 2.2.

    Time for ABC to swoop in and do a 2 hour comedy block on Tuesdays!

  • CrimTV


    Because ABC’s Tuesday comedies are doing so well ;)

  • Kelly

    Unforgettable was a really good episode. The ratings are disappointing for such a good show.

  • MattM

    Nice to see that “boring” New Girl show get adjusted up. Sorry for the rants earlier but when somebody calls a show something that it in reality is the opposite of, I get kind of annoyed. Tune in for the finale, it will be fun and hilarious, just as the rest of its episodes have been this season.

    @H50 Fan

    Take it easy.

    @ CrimTV
    Yes, that what makes Smash so fun to predict how it will do without The Voice lead in. Is it strong enough to stand on its own, or does it need a big lead in. Then we get into Retentions stuff, which is always fun. And we get to predict what Smash will do next year. And we get to analyze if NBC wasted the time slot after The Voice, or if they made a good choice.

    Fun Stuff
    Thank You

    @horrible…no need to be more concerned for new girl than lms…new girl has already been renewed :)

  • MattM


    Also their highest rated comedy not named Family Guy, doing quite well for itself. :)

  • H5O Fan

    @MattM, you are so right…happy ratings to all.

  • Linda E.

    NCIS LA will drop next week. It benefited from it’s strong lead-in and the
    HF-0 fans who watched.

    I’ll be glad to see Alex O’Loughlin back on HF-0 next week.

    They should renew Ringer for a 13 ep and put it in another slot if The LA Complex magicly goes up in viewers again as a rerun on wednesdays. If the LA Complex can’t prove this is a tragic trend then the CW has no hope of being saved! I mean 3 shows being cancelled in the same slot on the CW and in the same year. With two of those shows hitting under a million and last years and the year before that hitting under a million. I was suprised Ringer didn’t hit under a million!

    Odd, LMS gets 1.6 w/6.51 total 2 weeks ago and just 1.5 w/6.52 this week.

    And has anyone else noticed or mentioned that NCIS’s Abby is really Cindy Brady all growed up and gone goth?

  • Ryan

    @Tony –

    No, it’s time for NBC to do an entire new night of comedies in the Fall from 9-11 behind a Voice results show!

  • Ryan

    Cougar Town had more eyes last night than New Girl. Just saying, not that it matters much, but still…

  • Andrew

    Glee has been horrendous this year, save for the first six eps. Murphy has obviously learned nothing from fan feedback on season 2, which was an absolute mess. Not surprised ratings have dropped – none of my friends watch any more, and we were all so enamoured with season one. I predict last year will be its last, and rightfully so! Murphy, please don’t destroy american horror story like you did glee :(

  • suzie

    New girls kinda boring, nothing really happens and it only has few funny moment, the rest of the time you spend cringing. no wonder its only the 4th best rated show in its time slot.

  • Joseph

    NCIS LA has at least 2 more seasons so those thinking its going any where need to get a clue :)
    There are 4 shows that are confirmed getting enough episodes for syndication via the CBS earnings call , and as such have the backing of the Network so no need to worry that they will be cut pending a production disaster.
    The Good Wife
    Blue Bloods

  • Pete

    Oh dear @ people thinking a HOD Season 2 is a certainty given that its scored a 0.6 this one week. Just forget the fact its performed abysmally the rest of the season right!!!

  • LOL

    I hate cocky, and some fans of LA put me there. Being a fan of NCIS for years, NCIS LA would have been another CMSB and cancelled the same year, if NCIS wasn’t as strong. If H5o fans didn’t support this episode it would be behind has much as any orginal episode of NCIS LA. Fans of LA should be thrilled about this cross over, it gave them the best ratings they have had for a long time.

  • Roger

    Crime genius Patrick Jane is fired from his job after an emotional meltdown at the office May 10 episode.
    Don,t forget to watch The Mentalist Thursday nights.

  • CP

    lol GG just started getting a 0.6. It actually got it earlier in the season but went back down to 0.5. So I wouldn’t be surprised if next week it went back down.

    HoD is in it’s first season. For a show to get renewed for a second season, the first season has to have a strong fanbase and ratings.
