    Okay…worried for Scandal

  • Sarah

    Yay Grey’s. :)

  • Kyle

    NOW that is the NBC we all know. Pathetic numbers across the board for NBC. Grey’s extremely strong. Sad about Last Resort. Hoping it’s stable if not goes up next week!!!!

  • Tony ^_^

    Didn’t expect +0.2 for “Big Bang Theory”.

    “The Office” even with last week. So that must be a bright spot for NBC Thursdays…

  • TomNYC

    NBC Thursday is dead.

  • Matt

    @bigbrotherfan… I wouldnt be too worried for Scandal, as long as they manage above a 1.8 and above 6M, which I think it will, it will be safe. Also, its from Shonda Rhimes. She’s considered royalty at ABC.

  • James

    I wish Last Resort had a bigger premiere :(

  • John A

    Scandal did bad. Even PP could hold better retention than that.

  • PreciousCat

    Bye bye Up All Night

    and Last Resorts has the same amout of viewers as the x-fator but skewed oldder… I think Last Resort is doing decent thus far.

    As for Scandal, half the viewers went away, that’s pretty bad..

  • Cass rowlwland

    every abc and CBS show did better then NBC

  • Kyle

    Also does anyone have 15 minutes for Last Resort and Elementary? Interested in seeing how they leveled.

    Last Resort at least went up .3 from the first half to the 2nd half.

  • alim

    greys continues to reign supreme in the drama world

  • badman

    poor gleeeeeeee….

  • Clarke

    Wow…Glee is dying …and fast. I know a 2.4 on FOX is still good but the show is plummeting at a rate that will get it cancelled.

    Sad to see Parks&Rec so low. GWK doesn’t look so bad now compared to NBC’s must see TV lineup.

    Amazing ratings for TBBT. That show is on fire.

  • Petar Ivanov

    Hannibal at 10 and NBC will kill CBS and ABC in thursday.

  • LL2

    Scandal has potential, but Shonda Rhimes’ writing is awful. Another commenter described her being ham-fisted. In my opinion, the show would do better if it had a better head-writer. I want Scandal to succeed and I love Kerry Washington but I don’t know how much longer I can continue to watch after last night’s premiere. Hopefully, Shonda Rhimes makes some changes soon.

  • Cass rowlwland

    I have a feeling last resort will rise next week because abc showed the pilot online

  • bigbrotherfan

    Matt-I sure hope so. 50 perecent loss is kinda scary.

    Why compare PP ratings to Scandal-It should be doing better it’s a spin off from GREYS that used to come on RIGHT AFTER.

  • Petar Ivanov

    LAST SEASON for expensice TAHM i guess. Lose 1.5 from its lead-in.

  • Jack

    Last Resort might make a full season but definitely not a second .
