    Up all Night managed to go up a little, damn it! If it just could hit 1.5!
    So this week TBBT beat Modern Family, interesting.
    Beauty & The Beast may get bad ratings, but considering that only Supernatural, TVD and Arrow pull decent numbers for the network, CW might keep if Carrie Daries and Cult fails (I wish the latter doesn’t!)

    TVD never fails to amaze me how its always adjusted up

  • TVDude

    Wow, The Office blow a 2.0? Soon Parks and Rec will do better than it. NBC definitely needs to do something about the Thursday block. Given than no more episodes were given to Up All Night or 30 Rock says they plan to do something here midseason.

  • Ambience

    Eff the ratings system. BatB is a good show. The pilot was never as bad as some critics said and I don’t even know why these guys have jobs. What does it even take to be a critic anyway? Methinks there is some sort of conspiracy that is pushing the ratings down even though the shows are getting better as it goes along. These Nielsen rating systems suck. They need a new rating system because they are very poor statistically.

  • Sid

    Beauty skews a little older than TVD. I’m really enjoying it so far; I still expect a Full Season.

  • DryedMangoez

    Definitely looking forward to seeing NBC overhaul Thursdays next season.

    I already contacted the people who own this website about max


    My toast was still yummy & that is a series low for the Office I think

    TBBT up to 5.0 & Elementary 2.2 at 10:00 (Smiley face goes here)

  • Sarah

    Yay TVD tied with last week and barely lost any viewers. :)

  • Tihomir

    The vampire diaries rocks again. And TBBT… just wow.

  • Mary

    Maybe we can now stop hearing people whine about NBC’s Tuesday night numbers and how they need to get rid of Go On, TNN or Parenthood. Obviously NBC has bigger problems with their Wednesday and Thursday shows. Parks & Rec is the only one of those I find funny now (and occasionally 30 Rock). Maybe they should have that as lead in. Obviously 30 Rock is starting the night off on a low note.

  • Just Desserts


    Grey’s is #1!

  • Matthew Chapman

    The World Series was adjusted up sixth tenths.

  • Ambience

    Maybe it’s the fact that BatB has three female co-runners (two of them show creators) in a predominantly male run industry.


    ABC 8:00-9:00 & NBC 8:00-10:00 is serious CAUSE FOR ALARM

  • Michael

    I still think they should invest in a post-discussion show. Julie Plec + cast members as the panelist discussing the episode. MTV does it with their popular shows. I think this is the only way TVD fans would stick around at 9 PM.


    NBC 10-11:00 is beyond pathetic w/ 1.1

  • bluejays

    Yeah for Grey’s.

  • Ram510

    YES SCANDAL!!!!! I know it takes a week off but hopefully Scandal can grow from here

  • HB

    Terrible for B&TB.
    So TVD beats Arrow han? Must say TVD has a VERY loyal fanbase!
    TBBT halloween episode was so much better then MF’s. It deserves those numbers.
    POI was great last night, was hoping it wouldn’t adjust down.
