    Absolutely extatic for The Vampire Diaries! Amazing!

  • HB

    WOW WOW.Seriously TVD has done so gooood.Not bad for B&tB too!

  • Toni

    All of those condescending naysaying tweets about early celebrations. Good for TVD and BaTB.

  • Mike

    damn last resort…. damn u ABC

  • Eridapo

    Wow. Shocked at the lack of adjustments for the CW.

    I guess Football isn’t that popular in Pittsburgh after all…LOL

  • rob60990

    Thats great for the CW. TVD is strong and B&TB was decently sampled.

  • Mike

    ABC Gives their best new show in years the worst timeslot… DAMMMMNNNNIIITTT

  • John_M

    So no one in Pittsburgh, between the ages of 18-49, watched the NFL on their CW affiliate?

    That smells fishy to me.

    @Rachel

    Next time you should try being ecstatic.

    All of those condescending naysaying tweets about early celebrations. Good for TVD and BaTB.

    Yes, historical precedent being on your side means nothing when you can be a sore winner right?

  • robin

    TVD got the same rating as a show with twice the audience lol

  • Joe Daniels

    Wow, TVD went down 300,000 in viewers. :/

  • Val

    Wow, Vampire Diaries, Beauty and the Beast, Arrow and Supernatural all had a good week! Good for them, all 1.0 or higher. At least the network has something to cheer about (this week) after the horrible performances of GG, 90210 and Hart of Dixie.

  • BATB

    GO BATB GO. I liked it alot more that Arrow.

  • Matt

    good BaTB considering the horrid reviews it was getting.

    Can someone please tell me how every friday TBBT is always adjusted up like 2 or 3 tenths? It is seriously the only show that does so.

    Not good for 2.5Men… I think thats a low in viewers.

    Be nice to know the ‘cable provider’ split in Pittsburgh and which ones have NFL (and NFL HD). I don’t have the CW in HD where I am.

  • Greg

    I’m a fan of The Vampire Diaries, but I find this awful. This just means the CW will drag this show for 10 seasons, like they did with Smallville and will do with Supernatural. And NO show is able to be good for so long.

  • swalker

    TBBT adjusted up 3 tenths! Geez…

  • Tom

    Would someone please post the half hour breakdown for B&B. Thanks.

  • Eridapo

    @ Robert Seidman

    Do we know how well the game did in the NFL Network?

  • Marcelo

    Holy cow, what’s up with the CW these days?

    I hope Nikita increases as well (let me dream a little bit, please)
