    Yay! for The Neighbors! So awesomely ridiculous. I really wanted to hate this show and even voted for it to be the first to be canceled, but darn it… not many shows have me laughing out loud as much as this one.

  • John A

    I just finished watching Arrow. Not my kind of show but sort of felt like Smallville. It might do well for CW in the long run. The Neighbours may get a full season at this rate.

  • eridapo

    Just a shout out to SonofBronx for providing the data with a25-54 demo…

  • Dillan

    X Factor steady as a rock.

  • Networkman

    @Clarke, I am happy with you. YAY for The Neighbors adjusting up! Hopefully this show continue to grow on people. It is wonderfully written. I love unique family comedies like this.

  • HavingADomestic79

    BOO Guys With Kids being allowed to exist.

  • Bee

    could the neighbors actually.. survive? the WORLD was rooting against it since the trailer and yet, 3 episodes in and it’s still not tanking. it’s almost like whitney 2.0. i’m not saying it’ll become a hit, but it’s holding on and some good reviews are actually starting to come in.

    and YAY nashville for not adjusting down like i thought it would. next week will probably be 2.2-2.5. any higher would be a great, any lower will be troubling. great pilot. hope the rest of the show maintains the quality. i wish MF had provided an even better lead-in, but it’s better than most. hope MF picks up too and suburgatory premieres well next week.

    Will SVU after this season cancel?

  • John A

    The Voice and X Factor fairly stable all season. Doesnt look like people are sick of singing shows after all.

  • CrimTV


    Omg Arrow got a 1.4 18-49 in it’s second half hour woo!

  • Jessica

    The Neighbors might be a silly concept but it had me laughing out loud. I’ll look forward to watching it again. Criminal Minds was great last night but I switched back to ABC afterwards for Nashville. I was impressed with the singing. I enjoyed the awesome voices and familiar faces. I hope Nashville makes it so Wednesday can be a tv night I look forward to.

  • eridapo

    Check the schedule for ABC, and MF did not run a minute over into Nashville which is usually the main reason for adjustments for ABC.

    Not really. The CW has beaten FOX on Fridays in the past. The CW is certainly dropping in ratings but not quite as fast as the other networks. It will start to beat them more if Pedowitz can level out or even raise the network’s ratings.

    Meaningless wishful thinking. Regardless of how well Arrow does for the rest of the season, TVD is no longer the hot new kid on the block, ANTM and Nikita are not coming off Fridays, Gossip Girl and 90210 are still tanking, and whatever show you’re mad about getting canceled will still be dead.

    @ snowleopard

    If Arrow is still getting those numbers and that demo next week and beyond you can come back to me. Until then its all pie in the sky and delusion on your behalf.

  • SJ

    Wow, great for Arrow and the CW. Congrats on the only bonafide hit of the season. Who knew…

    Kind of a letdown for Nashville, I guess, although this has been a bizarre season as far as new shows go, so ABC is likely not too beat up about it. I have yet to watch the pilot, hopefully it lives up to the hype. Ugh Neighbors adjusted the wrong way. The sooner it goes, the better.

    The X Factor is really a bore from a ratings standpoint. It would have been way more interesting if it had either been a Duets-like bomb or an Idol-like death star. At this rate it’s just boring and not even worth commenting on.

    Oh wow, the 8pm hour on NBC lost out to the CW! And not a single show got a 2.0. There’s the NBC we all know and love. When The Voice’s away… I will say it is slightly surprising that Chicago Fire did better than SVU.

    OK for CBS. Wednesdays are likely their most consistent night this season.

  • Match

    OK so it’s like this, i’m a fan of both Revenge and Nashville and here’s how i see it. Revenge managed to get e 3.3 from 6.1 (2.8 deference), Nashville managed to get 2.8 from 4.9 (2.1 deference) so i say it’s solid. Everything else ABC has at 10 pm is bad this looks good and i don’t expect it to fall bellow 7 million and 2.0. So to all the haters suck it!!!

  • Kaylie

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS ARROW!!!! The CW is popping bottles and streamers at the hit they were waiting for!!!!

  • Fake Me Out

    One wonders how much better the ratings for Supernatural may have been the last few years if it wasn’t on a Friday and didn’t have that fugitive from the pound Nikita as a lead-in.

  • The End

    @3 episodes in and it’s still not tanking.

    Matter of opinion. The show is getting close to the abyss. These numbers are neither good or bad but a step in either direction will decide the outcome of the show.

  • Leoben Conoy

    Great news!

    So happy for The Neighbors.

    It is a genuinely original and very funny show. I absolutely adore it.

    For those rooting against it, do yourself a favor and watch an episode or two! I bet you change your tune!
