    Vampire Diaries is repeating horribly this summer.

  • David

    It is probably repeating horribly because the season kept repeating itself over and over again, so nobody wants to watch it again.

    I am surprised the game averaged almost 17 mil because the beginning was horrible and didn’t really get good until the 4th.

  • Mr Mikey

    Hello that’s when the most people tune in. In the fourth.

  • robin

    Im pretty sure it TVD would be repeating better if it was in it’s regular time slot

  • Colin

    I thought Jimmy Kimmel Game night was a 2.1 demo with 6M viewers from thursday ratings before finals

  • rob60990

    I can’t believe The Choice is actually doing decent. Show is a fiasco.

    Damn a Game 7 could be huge for ABC. So far both teams have won so they should get at least 5 games in.

  • David

    I was referring to the average, which was obviously pulled up by the fourth.

  • jj

    Another good rating for the NBA. Those numbers will keep going up after each game

  • GARebelman

    Jimmy Kimmel’s pre game show is doing worse than last year. Nobody cares. And they over-run it from the West coast I do believe that’s why he looks so high in the overnights.

  • Tim

    Loving Person of Interest. I heard CBS loves that show big time and that’s why it’s going to the San Diego Comic con,

  • rob60990

    Jimmy Kimmel and the pre-show are inflated in the overnights with West Coast viewing of the basketball game because sports programming is live on each coast.

  • Monica

    Saving Hope was super bad!

  • Nick

    The preliminary ratings aren’t always accurate.
    A few shows are susceptible to adjustments in the finals. For example, “The Big Bang Theory” is from 8 pm to 8:31 (31 min), not the usual 30 minutes, and the prelims only measure the first 30 (the other minute is given to its follower, in this case 2BG, which would be 29 min). The numbers are corrected in the finals.
    In a similar way, the #s for the live events are shaky. The prelims record what everyone was watching during the 8-8:30 time period, not just JKL. The West Coast was watching the NBA Finals live. In the final ratings, the numbers are seperated.

    The networks don’t bring their shows to Comic-Con. That’s up to their production company. In POI’s case, that would be Warner Bros. (CBS Distribution, ABC Studios, and NBC Studios have not given their schedules out yet, but Warner Brothers and 20th Century FOX have)

    The NBA will have great ratings. Especially if it goes 6 or 7. Game 6 would get 24 mil game 7 maybe 28-30

  • Norman Charles

    For the second consecutive week, Rock Center actually lost viewers from Saving Hope. Rock Center is like a horse with a broken leg. Please, NBC–I’m begging you–shoot Rock Center and put it out of its misery.

  • Allen

    How does CBS do it?

  • hubert_wentland

    2BG holds TBBT lead-in really well. if these shows were paired in the fall, they would both be over 5. CBS will do great anyway with TAAHM, but i’m not being to optimistic about 2BG at 9 pm, monday. it won’t do the best it can.

  • Rolls Royce

    wow are those 18-49 ers hiigher than american idol

  • Fancy Pants

    CBS Should have kept 2.5 men 9 on Mondays 2BG Thurs 8:30

  • Nadine
