    Greý’s pulled a 3.2 a ýear ago

  • You Go Girl

    Can somebody explain to me why NBC believes in single-cams and not multi-cams after seeing these numbers?

  • robin

    yes TVD adjusted up. take that everyone who thought that it would fall below 1 this season. as for TSC well who can concentrate on anything else after that TVD finale

  • tommy

    SCANDAL STILL RENEWED!!!!!!!!!

  • Scot

    Wow….the CW ended up in 4th place for the 8 p.m. hour, when was the last time that happened?

  • kev

    @You Go Girl They have multi-cam sitcoms, too. Have you seen those ratings this spring?

  • Jason

    Sucks that TSC bit the bullet. At least it goes out on a higher note than thought. :(

  • forg

    Shonda tweeted Scandal renewed

  • forg

    I don’t understand. Why are the total viewers numbers posted?

    Because people are interested to know

  • Diana

    MOVE TVD UP ON THAT TABLE PLEASE IT DESERVES THAT SPOT :)

  • SmG

    Scandal has been renewed for a second season.

  • bluejays

    Wow Greys is doing very well at the moment.

    Touch being renewed is a sign of how dire Fox is with regards to scripted content.

  • Ben Thompson

    Odd that both Vampire Diaries and Secret Circle adjusted up but great for Vampire Diaries nonetheless. I don’t really care that TSC got cancelled, not into it as much anymore.

  • Mark Wilkins

    Touch was already renewed for a second season, but it should be moved to Monday’s just to there’s something to watch because that slot is lacking anything decent.

  • RHONJd

    Yay for Greys! Really good numbers for an “older” show. I wish Scandal did better, but it is doing well. And also, BYE MISSING! ABC has a really tough time with shows on Thurs. @ 8. The next new show at 8 better have a huge star and LOTS of promotion! #justsayin

  • One @ Robert Seidman

    You’ve got the order wrong in the 8pm hour. Missing finished fifth.

    Yes, that’s right America. Missing finished FIFTH! IT WAS FIFTH IN ITS TIMESLOT! ABC FINISHED FIFTH IN ITS TIMESLOT! HAHAHAHAH!

  • Networkman

    Scandal was lucky to get renew with these numbers following Grey’s Anatomy 3.5 demo. The network could be pleased with how the show is developing.

    I also think Parks & Rec should be able to get at least a 2.0 following a show in which it is similar to. I thought Rules of Engagement was really funny last night so I would love the network to give it a final season so the writers can wrap up the story they wanted to show. Sara Rue is perfect in her role on this show.

  • Steve

    Remember that one time when Person of Interest looks poised to over take Grey’s? Me either.

  • Guy

    I predict a 4.0 for next weeks Grey’s finale. Yes i know its a bold prediction but it looks like it is going to blow everyone away. Someone is going to die during the hour so looking forward to it.

  • evelyn

    please don’t cancel Scandal – finally a show I can watch!!! Love it!!!
