    Quarter hours on The Neighbors:


  • Bob

    Good job for the Middle! I am so happy that this little show is doing so well. It is a “comfort food” type of show. Congratulations!!!!!

  • Brit&Simon

    I love how XF fans are “it’s great, not bad, so well, bla bla bla”. Get over it! This show is a flop. 3.4 and 9.63 millions?! Really?!

  • Tony ^_^

    “Revenge” recap was down but a 1.5 is still good.

    “The Neighbors” adjustment was expected. Were 15-Minute ratings ever posted for it?

    “X-Factor” doing well for FOX even though it underperformed this season. :p

  • Michael

    ABC must be very happy that the Neighbors didn’t fall down to earth in its second half.

  • John A

    Im surprised Modern Family wasnt adjusted up.

  • Clarke

    The Middle deserves to be even higher!
    A 3.2 is still good for The Neighbors..lets see how it will fare next week.

  • King1022rr

    Looks modern family isn’t going anywhere anytime soon 5.5 rating :)
    This show is a beast

  • Michael

    @SurvivorFan, if I’m not mistaken, almost all of the reality competition shows are adjusted up in the finals. Of course, besides “The Next” on the CW lol!

  • Colin

    Fantastic numbers for X Factor once again. What a hit show.

  • BJ

    Modern Family was off just 90,000 viewers from last year in terms of viewers but off 600,000 viewers in the 18-49 demographic. I’m guessing it’s skewed a little older this season than last.

    Anyways, good for The Middle but not so much for the Neighbors. Too early to say, but ABC made a great decision by moving the Neighbors from 9:30 to 8:30 and moving Suburgatory to after Modern Family.

  • The End


    Absolutely, if the numbers get any higher. They’l have to give the Judges a hefty increase in salary. As this show is absolutely breaking all known records on Nielsen.
