    SVU on USA beat TGW!!!

  • DenverDean

    Once again, a procedural in the “death slot” spikes up from TGW. CBS should seriously consider flipping TM and TGW.

  • Dan S

    Interesting that Blue Bloods outdrew The Good Wife. Maybe CBS should consider swapping days for both shows in the fall.

    Lmao@ golf demo

    Basketbbal only watch by 6 million more people than GOLF! Embarrassing! Basketball is way better

    Game 4 tonight is critical to NBA’s final series ratings. The Thunder have to win to at least make it a 6 game series. A 5 game series will only end up averaging only 16-17 mil while a game 6 will put it over 18

    @Disney basketball is certainly a much better but golf does have a lot of old fans don’t forget that. See the demo will tell you that

    Jimmy Kimmel ajusted down a full rating point

    Because at 7PM on West Coast 2nd half of NBA game was airing. In preliminary ratings those viewers were counted as Jimmy’s. Well, they aren’t.
