    That’s not always the case, LOST was able to pull back some of the audience at the end and if you remember far back Raymond, Seinfeld, and Friends (I know, so 90’s) they had their highest ratings during their finales.

    If Grey’s is able to pull off a classy final season, it may keep its ratings hovering between 3.5-4.0.

    I knew this would happen but i hoped for an upward adjustment i just hate GA so much its such a boring show only season 1 was kinda interesting and if u want to watch a doctor show watch reruns of ER its much much better than GA i dont know how people watch it.

    “they also messed up solid shows like H50 and The Mentalist by moving them.”

    Nope, Hawaii 5-0 has always been on Mondays at 10.

    @Ambience

    Ah, the old conspiracy theories. This must go into the Fans Excuse Bingo: my show tanked because critics badmouthed it on the basis that it has THREE female showrunners (the problem is that it has THREE female showrunners instead of one) :-)

  • Sonia

    Is just delete the show is going badly. Beauty and the beast goes badly despite pulling TVD think what it does without hitch!

  • SPM

    CW should just be renamed The Vampire Diaries network and be done with it.

    VDN

    Don’t worry POI will beat GA soon.

  • silvit

    @POI

    People don’t watch GA because is a good doctor show. It was never intended to be one.

  • Bonnie

    I think it would be better if The CW put BATB before TVD.

  • BJH

    Beauty and the Beast has fallen faster than Secret Circle. Makes me happy.

  • AppleStinx

    ‘Rock Center with Brian Williams’ is again having fewer viewers than a certain program on cable news. There was a time when this would have been huge, especially considering who Brian Williams had as a guest.

    @silvit

    What do you care about my thoughts or the failure of a show I like?

    Everyone knows that Hollywood is a big gentlemen’s club. Less chance of female show-runners wanting to make a casting couch conditional eff to the talent before they give them a job.

    @Sonia

    what does that even mean lol

  • Bobby

    Wow….Up All Night beat Last Resort…..

  • Petar Ivanov

    When we will see poll for CBS post super bowl slot…….come on.

  • Danie

    @Kurt

    You’re right, my bad. Shame it dropped from last year.

    @ BJH

    Me too :D

    Justice has been served.

    That’s extremely unlikely. Final season’s in general do not see a ratings bump – the finale maybe, but not the season overall. Finale aside, the final season of Grey’s Anatomy will be its lowest rated season no matter when they announce its end.

    In those examples, by the way, Lost was flat with its previous season (so down without the actual finale), same with Everybody Loves Raymond. Friends was up, but it had a massive finale – without that, it was down year-to-year.

    Of course, Seinfeld was up in its final season (to #1), but that was not an announced final season – they decided to end it because they were on top.

  • CBS makes me happy

    Look at you ladies gloating over Grey’s you love your soaps don’t you

  • eridapo

    Nikita is on tonight

    So I guess I will avoid the site tomorrow. What is up with these CW fans? Even when their shows are dead they keep talking about them.

    Hey Chuck fans, Please share with us what you did so that we may pass it on to TSC fans.
