    Glad Revenge didn’t adjust DOWN at least.

  • Dillan

    The LA Complex repeat down, but still up in total viewers compared to the original airing. I still think the show should be moved to Wednesdays.

  • Owen

    Survivor & SVU :)

    ANTM to go below 1 Million next week?

    I think the problem with “Survivor: One World” is that there is no one to like besides Kim. So far she is one of the best Survivor players in history next to Boston Rob (the best player in the history of Survivor).

    Most of the women are stupid (Kat), dumb, or just plain mean (Alicia).

    As bad as the women are, the men are 100 times worse. The men won immunity as a team, and then voted to give up immunity and voted out one of the men, when it was the men vs. women tribes. WOW. And the men had Colby. The men on this show are beyond stupid.
    I think a couple bloggers put it best when they wrote: “disgusting we all felt watching Colton … issues of ignorance, entitlement, and racism.” “All the players lost all my respect when none spoke out against Colton’s hatred and harassment of others. I think a lot of people could not watch any more of Colton and Alicia hatred.”

    This has to be the worst cast of players in the history of Survivor.

    I could go on forever but there is no one to watch besides Kim.
    It will be fun to watch Kim in a Survivor all stars. ! I think she will do great.

    I think the viewing public is really smart. And that is why they make the decisions they make

    No LA complex should be axed from Wednesday. ANTM was getting a 0.3-0.4 as a repeat at 8pm.

  • Brian

    Revenge needs to go,so much for a big hit show..

  • John A

    APT 23 another loser after modern family.

  • Dario

    Yay for SVU! Up two tenths from last week!

    “Revenge needs to go,so much for a big hit show..”

    Not going anywhere. Get used to it. :D

  • Michael

    Lol, at LA Complex!

  • Tony ^_^

    Errrh… ANTM is in danger. It’s fallen really low this Spring and it’s almost below 1 million viewers.

    American Idol keeps falling but it’s back to being the #1 show.

    @Brian: “Revenge needs to go,so much for a big hit show..”
    Umm… No. It’s been really steady in the 2.3-2.5 range for the fall episodes. And in the spring it’s been at a 2.1-2.3 and all shows go down in the spring. So “Revenge” is doing really well for a show at 10 PM.

  • Dennis

    yes, SVU adjusted up again!!!! SVU come back! But, it’s was a episode with BD Wong. He returned for only one episode…

  • Andy

    CSI was HORRIBLE last night, no wonder it’s fallen. I hope when CBS cancels either CSI: Miami or CSI: NY (or both) that they put more focus on the flagship series. I wish Ted Danson & Liz Shue would leave, they’re good, but they aren’t Petersen or Helenburg.

    As for Law & Order: SVU, congrats to them, probably the best scripted show on NBC. Smash is dull, Grimm is okay, Awake is putting me and itself to sleep.

    Hope for 2012-13 NBC & CBS spilt up SVU & CSI; I wonder how they’d do away from each other.

  • rob60990

    SVU did better than Smash this week. Poor NBC. :D

  • John A

    Rock Center is killing SVU.

  • Jack

    Law & Order: SVU: Highest number of viewers since January 2012!!!!

  • Lane

    SVU has been GREAT this season. Grimm started okay.. got really boring.. now it’s AMAZING the last 3 episodes have been crazy good! I want NBC to pair Grimm and SVU somewhere together. Maybe like a Tuesday?

  • Juan

    Damn it, sad that Apartment 23 was adjusted down as it was my favorite episode so far, hilarious. Also at least Revenge went up in viewers. Hope it goes up all the way through its last few episodes especially since yesterdays episode was amazing. Will watch suburgatory and Modern family later

  • Ram510

    Yay Apt 23 adjust down!
