    :O That is huge drop for Castle, now it will only be worse. And hopefully Revolution will stabilize somewhere around 3.0-3.2.

  • Tim

    Actually, I was disappointed in H 50. The whole shoot out scene on the street seemed pretty 2nd rate. I have never seen Castle but if 5o does not get better, I may.

  • W

    I am completely shocked with all the ratings!

  • Michael

    Fall TV back in full swing! :D

  • Kavyn

    Revolution was alright, but I still feel like people (like me) are staying tuned just to see where the show is going. I feel like the lead is pretty weak, and some of the secondary characters aren’t really working either. I’m loving the Danny side of the story though. People I thought I would like are becoming pretty dull, and no one has really impressed me just yet.

  • KarenM

    The sky’s falling! ;)

    Revolution crushed Castle and 5-0 in the 18-49. More so 5-0 because ABC skews older.

  • Sarah

    Bones matching last week and barely dropped viewers. Still not the greatest ratings, but I can’t help but be happy. :)

    CBS needs to pull Partners off the air quickly and air HIMYM and 2BG back to back. Reruns of TBBT will do better than Partners pretty soon.

  • Ron

    What a difference a year makes. These are March/April type numbers.

  • Ron

    @Vance, repeats of BBT will definitely be able to do better. I feel like they should have left well enough alone. 2BG did fine but wasn’t ready to take over the 9pm slot.
    The other option is to try M&M at 830 and a new show at 930

  • RyanT

    Pretty good adjustment for HIMYM. Yeah, it’s down from last season, but it’s still doing pretty damn good relative to the rest of the shows.

  • John A

    CW should just dump LA Complex. Let it live in Canada but they shouldnt bother airing it.

  • iggy

    Were these The LA Complex’s season finales?


    What a difference a year makes. These are March/April type numbers.

    Ain’t it great! (I don’t watch any of these shows.)

  • louise

    HaHa, The Castle fans are now in SHOCK about Bones beating it even though Bones is against much stiffer competition. Love It.

  • Andrea

    The thing with Castle though is that it’t not that far off from DWTS. ABC has to know they skew older so they can’t be too displeased with at least having the highest number of viewers. At least it’s something, even though I know that it’s the demo that matters.

  • GARebelman

    NBC most improved. CBS crashed what the hell happened to Hawaii 5-0. ABC skewing older than usual with the Voice in the same time slot. FOX no longer competitive. What a difference a year makes!

  • Slam

    Death to the procedurals!

  • Hubert

    So if CBS had any show in 3’s at 8:30, 2BG would score 4.0 I guess. The awfull partners lead in really dragged the young anchor down. If HIMYM was one hour long, everything could be diffrent.

    I expect HUGE increases for CBS comedys in december (yeah, long time ;p).

  • MoHasanie

    Yikes. Usually I’m not surprised by finals if I’ve already seen the preliminaries, but those ratings aren’t good. Every network has something to be disappointed about.

    Huge downward adjustment for Castle and this is the premiere! I think its time the show should end.
    DWTS premiere was very low rated as well. Competition is hurting this show.

    The Voice is very strong. I got it way wrong when I predicted 2BG would be the highest rated of the night. I can’t believe the show can manage a 4.4 against that huge amount of competition. Its its third highest rated episode this season, and only 0.3 down from last week.
    The 3.4 I predicted for Revolution was correct! :) . Recently, my predictions haven’t been correct.

    HIMYM did good then. I think its clear that 2BG and HIMYM do well together and help each others ratings. If CBS can just find a good replacement for Partners, than I think CBS Mondays can still work very well but not as well as it used to. Moreover, even if TAHM was still on Mondays, Hawai 5-0 would have still performed badly and that’s mainly dragging down the average ratings for CBS on this night. I’m guessing Revolution is hurting its ratings.

    Also, you have to give credit to Bones for getting a 2.3 against all that competition. If I were a fan of a weak show on Monday like Bones, then I’d be very worried all the time.
