    @ Pete

  • forg

    TBBT ties AI Wednesday and Modern Family

    Scandal adjusted down as always

    Grey’s Anatomy still a a ratings magnet!

  • Oliver

    I suspect Fox will regret renewing Touch.

    That said, the network is in a downward sprial, so perhaps it’s better than the alternative.

  • Brittney

    I’m happy for TSC!

  • S.

    Grey’s going up and Scandal doesn’t. Again.

  • rob60990

    Grey’s should be well over a 4 next week. It’s amazing how steady the show has been. Here’s to 10 seasons at least. :D

  • Kavyn

    A lot of upwards adjustments, nice!

  • John A

    Here we go now Tsc will be renewed earlier it was cancelled lol it still lost half its lead in.

  • Pete

    @ A

    Hi there :)

    Yes those pathetic people who hoped it would adjust down to a 0.4 can go take their negativity somewhere else, sad individuals.

  • SteveO

    GCB pulling a 1.8 with mid 2’s lead-in. Scandal pulling 1.9 with much stronger mid 3’s lead-in. Interesting.

  • EatMorePez

    Scandal adjusted down: shocker.

  • Anon

    Wahhh, move TVD above missing :)

  • John A

    Community and 30 rock below 3 million is pathetic.

  • Dillan

    “GCB pulling a 1.8 with mid 2?s lead-in. Scandal pulling 1.9 with much stronger mid 3?s lead-in. Interesting.”

    This is why I think ABC should renew GCB over Scandal.

  • PJM

    And BBT takes the last scripted title of the season! (well, when going head-to-head against Modern Family and overall viewers is the tiebreaker)

  • Jack

    Touch should have not get a second season …
