    GG should’ve been given a full final season, 11 episodes aren’t enough :(

  • W

    CBS won again! Great job on the finale episodes for all the comedies and H50. Congratulations!

  • robin

    I’m sorry but magically going from 800,000 viewers to up 1.14 million isn’t something to really be proud of or impressive.

  • A


    Its a show in its 5th season with story lines that went downhill; IT IS impressive. Especially for CW. You obviously don’t know anything about the show.

  • Meg

    Really, really happy for HoD. I know the ratings aren’t the best, but 1.6 million viewers for the CW is pretty good. I hope the CW promotes it well this time around, because I think it has a chance to grow.

  • bonescrazy

    Hey, for a popular show that was stuck in a horrible time slot on a horrible night, I think Bones did a heck of a good job!!

    @ 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!”

    me too, I started watching Hart Of Dixie due to the comments on tvbythenumbers and now it is my favorite show!

    CW has my favorite show Hart Of Dixie , they need to give it a better time slot and promote it more

  • BJH

    I wonder if Gossip Girl’s rebound was due to its renewal? Fans may have been leaving the show due to the possibility of cancellation. Still wish Secret Circle was renewed – if only as a midseason replacement. I’m disappointed it was canceled in favor of Hart of Dixie. But, there’s always next fall, which looks promising.

  • Becky

    NBC should always be on top! If they be smart!

  • Valarie

    CBS is always one up on all the networks ! They just too good who watches i wonder who watches CBS!

  • MarcJames87

    11 episodes is enough for GG, at least it will get a good send off! I can’t see where else it could have went in terms of the storylines…..

    At least it has made some big actors.

  • david

    Good to see Heart of Dixie end the season with a .6. I hope they show repeats during the summer sometime. I watched half of the season so maybe i can get got up over the summer and i really hope it grows and has a better lead in or if it is the lead out show.

  • Taylor


    Yes they really do need to promote it more! I think it could possibly gain more viewers if this happen! It’s also my new favorite show lol! I LOVE IT! I haven’t felt this way about a show since Gilmore Girls lol.

  • John

    Hart of Dixie premiered with 0.8 18-49 ratings, and 1.8 million viewers. It ends the season with 0.6 18-49 ratings, and 1.6 million viewers.

    Seeing how it maintained itself and had good retention from season premiere to finale, maybe its reneweal is now NOT in question? :)

    CW just needs to promote it harder.

  • forg

    I didn’t expect Mike & Molly to have more viewers than 2.5 Men although the latter is still far ahead in the demo. Anyway, nice rating for HIMYM :D

    So-so performance for DWTS but The Bachelerette did OK

    Poor House, it’s ending silently

    Good performance for AGT

  • Kate

    I’m not a fan of the show, but HOD definitely deserved that renewal. Interested to see how it performs next year.

  • Lee Holt

    Bones Finale was like the good ole Bones we all love so hopefully we can get back on track with the ratings for Season 8!!!

  • nikki

    Hahaha cw ratings blow like usual. Abcfamily kicks its ass on Mondays and will continue. What a waste of network. Lol can’t wait to see them crash and burn!

  • Tim

    The Bachelorette did good. Great retention after dwts. 2.6/2.6 :)

  • John

    I think this is the highest rated HIMYM finale so far, at least demo wise?
