    I’m glad Private Practice is holding up so well in its new timeslot. This week it got a similar rating after a 2.4 DWTS results show to what it had been getting after 3.0+ Grey’s episodes.

    It’s definitely a lock for renewal now; here’s hoping for a full 22-episode season.

  • Amy

    New Girl’s 2.2 is still solid compared to other FOX shows. Only Family Guy and Glee are doing better.

  • Jane

    90210 will get renewed over HOD, Nikita, TSC because it has better ratings. It has nothing to do with the content of the show.

  • Brandy

    Bjh, you may not like 90210 but it had the highest rated premiere of any cw show in cw history(4 million viewers)) and this season it has been the fourth or fifth highest rated cw show(after VD, SPN,OTH, SC) and even in season two GG got 2 million viewers a episode.Networks don’t care quality, just ratings/making money.Back in thier day, 90210&GG&Nikita had 22-24. Episodes to prove themselves too. SC, Hart of Dixie,Nikita might be cancelled cause they’re just not bringing enough viewers/money to CW because they’re demo ratings are lower than or same ad GG,Top Model,90210(90210 has several 0,6 this season, Top Models been between 0.5-0.7,Nikita started at 0.6 but fell to 0.4,Hart of Dixie has been between 0.5-0.6 for quite a while( since Jan)).I like SC & HoD too & hope they’re renewed.You may not think Top Model,GG,90210 are quality shows(&thats ok, everyone has thier own opionion). but there are a lot of people who think otherwise & CW thought they were quality shows,otherwise they wouldn’t be on CW. Personally, I like in GG, SC, VD, 90210,HoD,Top Model.

  • Brandy

    Also, VD,GG,HoD,90210 are cws highest rated shows in w18/34,which matters to cw(mark Pedowitz said in a interview cw is tripling its w18-34 audience this season and in another interview said GG,SPN, 90210 ect have saved the network through Netflix, Hulu, iTunes,DVD/merchandise sales. GG is the first cw show to hit 100 episodes, sells well overseas, does well in iTunes, merchandise sales,used to do well in DVr,cw will try to get a good syndication deal for it, and other shows have been lower rated than Top Model,GG, 90210.Yyou may not think Top Model is a quality show but it’s cws only reality show hit( though it’s upn originated) & used to be one of cws higher /highest rated shows.

  • josh

    [Glee is] still the #1 scripted show on FOX!

    (i`m not homophobic)

  • Mary


    Actually VD was the highest rated premier, it got almost 5 million. I think Smallville had the highest ratings ever on CW not premier, but an episode during the season got 6 million.

    I agree I know noone who watches ncis reg or LA and Im a bartender in a bar thats crowded with the desired demo most people liked csi but feel it lost it when they lost its main star and moved to Wewds its a ridiculous concept theres hardly any high crimes in the Navy I can say for certain and the real NCIs are very much not working very much cept to defend/prosecute drunks and push pencils the whole concept is stupid and def doesnt warrant two shows with same ridiculous set up

  • Networkman

    In my opinion, those coaches on The Voice are horrible. And I think alot of people probably don’t care who really wins because many of the favorites have already gone home. But Justin Bieber is schedule to perform. So who knows?

  • Bob

    Doesn’t matter what your area of example does. NCIS and LA are one of the most highly viewed shows on TV with NCIS being the most viewed show on TV most times. I think the original is especially great. I am so glad that CBS has the best shows. Otherwise not much to watch. I am in the coveted demographic and love many of the CBS shows. The only non CBS shows I watch are Harry’s Law (lol), The Apprentice, Desperate Housewives, GCB, Revenge, Shark Tank, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, and the rest CBS. Obviously, I have to watch On-Demand for some of these shows as good CBS shows are on when they are on, but I do watch all of those at some point. It is 100 percent accurate that CBS is the best network on TV and the ratings prove it.

  • SJ

    Private Practice steady! :)

  • Pam

    I think NCIS and NCIS LA are the best CBS shows, and that is why they get the viewers they get, 20, 16 million viewers. I think those numbers are the best prove of how good those shows are. I think those shows, Criminal Minds and all the CSI are the best cop procedurals. I am not sure if CBS will ever be able to produce something like that again.Although Person of Interest seems to be the new NCIS for CBS.

  • mattfitz

    FOX NEWS has alot of viewers as well doesnt mean its good or accurate just that people have no discernable taste or sense lol

  • Christy

    Don’t forget to watch CBS tomorrow night. All the shows are really good.

  • Christy

    I watch NCIS. It’t a really good show. I really like the cast in the show. I really like Mark Harmon. He was really good when he played Ted Bundy.

  • Yannis

    The reason LA Complex is low in ratings is because it’s a repeat as you can find all of the 6 episodes available online (Pirate etc.)

    It’s no different than any other show on that network that airs reruns. Hopefully the CW realizes this and will keep it on their network.
