    Dont wanna gloat but suck it POI fans Greys still wins :P

  • Dillan

    Yay for TVD! And tying Last Resort!

    I can’t see Beauty and the Beast getting a full season..

    Surprised Scandal didn’t adjust down.

  • Kavyn

    Too bad LR didn’t adjust up.

    I was hoping BTB would decline. I’m hoping it gets 0.5 next week :-)


    The Office was also adjusted down .2

  • rob60990

    HAHAHAHAHA after all that gloating from CBS and POI fans, Greys still came out on top. :D

  • Poweranimals

    Damn it, B&tB.

  • rion

    Awesome for TBBT:)

  • omabin

    Yay for the vampire diaries and yay for scandal holding! Up is up, especially when the lead-in is so much down! I think it’s the first time that it does not adjust down. Also, beauty and the beast is already doing as bad as i thought, i was surprised by the preliminaries indeed. Hart of Dixie will beat it within a matter of weeks, which is awesome (even though i feel sorry for the cw as whole).

    Also, so much for poi beating greys. it will have to wait for another chance. It was close though.

  • iMember

    Ouch @ Beauty and the Beast. I stopped watching after the Pilot, so whatever happens to it, no love lost.

    Was hoping POI wasn’t adjusted down though!

    Last Resort. :(

  • omabin

    Oh and bbtw beats modern family for the week and pulls the 5.0. Still behind TWD though :P

  • Seth

    Scandal didn’t get adjusted down! I know it’s low and unlikely to get another season but the fact it manages to stay at the same level (1.9/2.0) no matter how much Grey’s drops must be in it’s favour.

  • John A

    Great for TVD and BBT. Those are woeful numbers for NBC.


    WOW…just noticed that NBC’s average for the night is under 1.4, also no show above 2.0 (oy vey)

    Greys pulls out a photo finish and it wins…good job

    2 weeks in a row BBT beats MF

  • rob60990

    Series low for The Office?

  • lll

    I hope those POI haters above me laugh it up. POI will rise again because they have the potential to beat Grey’s; they have done it before and will do it again.

    Anyway sad POI went down a point but glad TVP went up.

  • Michael

    I’m not a retentionista, but those numbers should be concerning for Mark Pedowitz (Beauty & The Beast).

  • Vance

    The CW needs to seriously try something else at 9 PM. Shows like TSC and B&TB cannot compete with Grey’s Anatomy for female viewership. The network should consider moving Supernatural back to Thursdays.

  • Andy

    Just as Beauty and the Beast was getting better. The show still sucks but I feel sorry for Jay Ryan and Kristin Kreuk.

  • Clarke

    YIKES. The Beauty and the Beast is doing terribly! They need to revamp the show and get new writers and better supporting actors because all 3 episodes of the shows thus far have been a snozefest. CW should have just kept Ringer & Secret Circle, they would have done the same if not better ratings as Emily Owens & B&TB.

  • Billy

    The Big Bang Theory is just on fire. Those are season highs. It beat Modern Family two weeks in a row.
