    HoD 1.60 million viewers, great!

  • carla

    Incredible! House had less than 6.5 total viewers and only a 2.2 in the demo for its penultimate episode.

    Since Cuddy left, that show has become a straight up dud in both ratings and storylines. Even the vaunted return of 13 last night couldn’t attract any crowds. Nobody seems to care anymore. Such a sad way to end a formerly awesome show.

  • carla

    That’s less than 6.5 million total viewers.

  • Ultima

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

    *jaw, floor*

    “Hart of Dixie is the most watched show on the network behind VD.”

    How do you know this since GG and HoD were the only shows that have aired this week on the CW? SPN usually is second so we will see.

  • Mickey 1.0

    HoD is looking pretty steady. I hope the CW shows HoD repeats this summer, I was intending to catch up. But OTH is on the schedule next Monday.

  • Kavyn

    A big congrats to HOD. 1.6 million viewers and it kept steady the entire season. I’m thinking of giving the finale a watch and giving it a second chance for season 2.

    @Mickey 1.0

    How do you know?

  • sophia

    Glad for Dixie, it was a great episode last night (especially the last 15 minutes)and I can say it was Rachel’s best performance all season.

  • Aakygt

    Soo happy about gg even though it doesn’t matter anymore fans can watch it without worrying over ratings. But note that Gg is the only cw show which can magically go from 800,000 viewers to up 1.14 million the next week; just proves to haters and everybody why cw was confident enough to renew it. I sure hope if it keeps up the 0.6 demo cw may consider making the final season at least 15 episodes. The crap sack Nikita still gets a full season with 0.4 demo; such a disgrace.

  • kaslad

    HIMYM was epic. Brilliant.

  • Allen

    @kaslad: No it wasn’t. It was awful. I hope the ratings tank next year.

  • WB

    HART OF DIXIE— 0.6/2 and 1.60 million viewers!! I hope people will tune into DIXIE and get hooked this summer to boost Season 2 ratings! Not only for dixie, but the whole entire CW network!

  • Nick

    Wow, go Mike & Molly. Such a great show. Good demo, but great total viewers. Most watched show on CBS last night.

  • WB

    When does DVR ratings come in??? To make a final season average for a particular show ???? Does anyone know???

  • Taylor

    Go Hart of Dixie! Can’t until Season 2! Just a few more viewers to make it to 2 million viewers!

    0.6/2 1.60 million viewers!

  • Taylor

    I need to catch up on Hart of Dixie too from the beggining, I just recently start watching due to everyone was talking about it and it’s fate on here and now I’m hooked lol. I started watching it back in March, so that’s pretty much half the season!

  • Linda
