    Glad HoD and GG stayed steady.

  • Marcelo

    Hart of Dixie got 1.6 viewers, wow O:

  • Julia

    Woho GG!

  • jamie

    CW shows don’t really rise for their finale’s so they’re great numbers. Hart of Dixie is the most watched show on the network behind VD. (Yes, I know viewers don’t matter).

  • Charmed

    Yes, Hart Of Dixie steady and adjusted up in total viewers!

  • Survivor Fan

    The 3.7 and 2.6 ratings are very good summer numbers.

  • Sara

    HoD always eats from GG’s raitings in the finals.. is it because of overrun?

  • Al

    Wow… Mike and Molly has more viewers than 2.5 men??????

  • Hades

    I wonder if HOD will beat SPN for total viewers this week.

    GG skews really young, look how many less viewers it had with the same demo.

    Anyway both shows showed why they should have been renewed, I don’t watch or care for either but I think the CW will be pleased enough with these ratings, they could have been worse.

    I wonder will SPN and Nikita both be up for their own season finales? I would love for SPN to finish the season on a 0.8, back where it started at the beginning of the season. It would be a somewhat positive sign for next season imo.

    m&m still tops taahm in viewers, weird.

  • Paulo

    WOW “Dancing with the Stars” and “The Bachelorette” same demo numbers, but DWTS skews so old. Or maybe The Bachelorette skews to young. LOL

    I was waiting for the american version of “Tu Cara me Suena” on ABC next season, replacing one cycle of Dancing with the Stars.

  • Alejandro

    @ Jamie

    Actually SPN is generally the second most viewed show on the CW after TVD ;) Of course whether HOD bucks the trend this week remains to be seen.

  • June

    People REALLY expected the Smash season finale to do as well as the America’s Got Talent premiere?! HA!

  • Mark Wood


    Hart of Dixie is the CW most watched show besides VD.

    Nope please try again.

  • Pete

    Hart of Dixie never even adjusted up for its final ratings, TSC did yet it gets cancelled? ridiculous

  • Jenny

    Hart Of Dixie is my favorite show. Great acting, great writing, great plots, great scenery, great camera work, great everything. And lots of eye candy for both men and women.

    I hope CW will put it in a better time slot, and promote it better !

  • Hades


    I think Jamie meant HOD being the second highest in viewers for a season finale…so far. I expect SPN to beat it barring any preemption that is.

  • Jack

    H5-0 steady … yes!

  • Hades


    They don’t renew shows based on how many times they adjust up. Yes TSC was adjusted up for its finale from a 0.5 to a 0.6. HOD didnt need an adjustment to get a 0.6 an it had more viewers with a lower rated lead in. I think HOD earned its renewal over TSC. Thats coming from someone who doesnt even like the show.

  • Andy


    It doesn’t matter. Dixie was renewed, TSC was axed! Get over it!

    In the bright side, Dixie could be a hit, if crappy GG wasn’t leading the night.
