    Haha @ Happy Endings & Apt 23. Even worse than the prelims. :-D

    Isn’t ABC supposed to be above CBS at 10 pm?

  • Sid

    I see Happy Endings doing okayish with the DWTSR lead-in. But I doubt Apt. 23 makes it past Season 2.

  • Justin

    I don’t get why nobody watches Happy Endings. It’s a really good show.

    Tuesday Final Averages

  • John A

    Lol HE always adjusted down last year and now in repeats.

  • K


    Maybe some viewers think Happy Endings is lame.

  • Oliver

    Repeat numbers don’t bode well for HE/Apt 23 but young skewing shows tend to repeat badly.

    Still won’t be surprised if they are axed next season. Helps that ABC’s new comedies all look terrible and Sony will really want syndication for HE (even if it means the show ends up on cable).

  • jake

    I’m confident Apartment 23 is going to do ok and get a 3rd season, at least.

  • Joseph

    Don’t worry ,, CBS was ahead of ABC at 8:00, 8:30, 9:00, 9:30, they were a smidge lower at 10:00 pm but my guess is that a few thousand of their viewers opted to catch up on their recorded shows rather then a delay broadcast from the Republican Convention.

  • Stan T

    Wow….Fox News Channel devastated ABC, CBS, and NBC in the ratings last night…FNC at 10PM was 6,979 compared to 4.770 by NBC, the closest of the three…you can tell people don’t trust the MSM to tell the truth…lol

  • MNP

    Oh Stan T, that is because only regular viewers of Faux News are used to digesting that amount of lies in an hour.

  • richierich

    C’mon folks. Let’s keep this about ratings. Go to a political website or news website if you want to play political sniping and bad mouthing. I find solice in this website because I can escape from the political rhetoric of both parties.

  • Grandano

    I’m going to be seriously honest here ABC should go on ahead and cancel Apt. 23, at least with Happy Endings their closer to syndication with that and can always move it back to Wednesdays.
