    I feel so bad for 666 I really liked it yes its not american horror story but its still really good and its not AHS becouse is 22 E show not 12 E show people really need to give it a chance becouse its worth it

  • Match

    Good for Once Upon a Time, but 666 Park Avenue 4.99M seriously in the second episode, a real shame. And a question which season was the last ABC was number one? And from 2004-2007 which place it took?

  • badman

    666′s numbers are not good but it’s beating the mentalist.. this can be either good for 666 or really bad for the mentalist..

  • Vincenzo

    Last Resort is in danger, 666 Park Avenue is in danger, Elementary is going down… I guess I chose the best year to start watching tv again. :)

    This will probably sound like a really stupid question given the forum, but I genuinely don’t know nor can I figure it out:

    How can 4.99 million viewers garner a better demo than 9.01 million? What exactly is a demo?

  • Justin121

    REVENGE!

    THE GOOD WIFE

    @ kul65

    The demo refers to the age demographic. For tv the ratings the coveted demo is 18-49. So you can have 4.99 million but if fewer of those viewers are in the right demo it means less.

    OUAT :D

    “This will probably sound like a really stupid question given the forum, but I genuinely don’t know nor can I figure it out:

    Demo is short for the demographic that advertisers care about, which in the case of primetime broadcast TV is people between 18-49. Each demo point represents 1.265 million people in this age range. 666 had approximately 2.15 million people in the this range and 2.84 million people out of the range. The Mentalist on the other hand, had about 2 million people in the demo range and 7 million out of it (most likely most of these are 50 and over).

    Many people here, myself included, don’t believe it’s really in the advertisers best interest to solely focus on this range, but it’s more or less what they do. There are other demos looked at as well, such as 18-34 and people with higher income levels, but its unknown just how much attention to give those.

    Great for OUAT

  • s0303

    really good for 60 minutes…i thought it would drop a lot more than that…

  • Ram510

    So OUAT actually won the night, not Family Guy. Good Job!

    I’m surprised 666 didn’t adjust down. Maybe it can make its way back to a 1.9-2.0

  • Upol

    such an amazing and emotional episode of the mentalist, but it got soooo low ratings, it’ll probably be its final season

  • Mate

    666 Park Avenue is so gone!

  • Craig

    Shame for 666, good show

  • JR

    Yay for Once- so, a 13% decline from the season premiere. Not bad.
