    Oh Sit is doing really well for CW. I wish I would have some time to watch it. Is it a pretty good show?

  • Michael

    Hopefully, Mike Booger lol is evicted tonight. He’s such a great social game player, though! I guess we’ll see tonight.

  • John A

    Im so tired of the cw is doing great with oh sit comments. Barly over a million and a 0.4 isnt that great. Matching a SPN repeat isnt amazing.

  • CrimTV

    @John A

    For summer it is, and being it’s highest rated premiere in the Summer! And everyone predicted it would do badly cause it’s a reality show involving musical chairs!

  • John A

    But its just a 0.4. Supernatural could get the same in that slot.

  • Danimals

    Considering that a repeat of SPN is the best performing show for the CW this summer is actually a good.

  • rob60990

    The praise for Oh Sit is highly exaggerated and just shows how low the CW has reached.

  • Martin

    Was The Next a repeat?? – also, know its different day but just rewatched the Season 2 finale of Raising Hope and it was, at the same time, the most awesome, saddest and funniest thing I have seen in a long time.

  • SJ

    So has NBC officially pissed away EVERY original AGT would-be lead-in on a repeat? Who the hell is running that network?!

  • Joseph

    Nice , good to see the weekly bump on Big Brother ,
    No issue with the rest of the ratings due to local Ball Games ,
    But as was pointed out above its a shame that NBC does not capitalize better in its use of a AGT as a lead in.

    While I don’t think it’s a sign of the CW’s imminent death, since it could have been a lot worse, I do think Oh, Sit!’s getting the equivalent of an SPN repeat in the same slot is hardly cause for celebration on its behalf. Surely even a new reality show is more expensive than a scripted repeat. All it really does it show that Wednesdays at 8pm have the same potential for great ratings as Thursdays at 8pm, which is good news for the CW. But they could have put an SPN repeat there and got the same result.

    Also, there doesn’t seem to have been much point to putting a repeat of The Next in place of the SPN repeat so that it could get a few thousand viewers less. I guess it was just SPN’s week to be preempted.

    So has NBC officially pissed away EVERY original AGT would-be lead-in on a repeat?

    No, the AGT performance finale will lead into the Guys With Kids’ premiere/preview. So, they’re batting .100, post-Olympics, with AGT lead-outs!

    I laughed more at that than I should have.

    It would have been nice if Grimm were on Tuesdays at 10, but I guess NBC really had a lot of faith in Stars Earn Stripes…
