    I see CSI is still holding its own. I remember when at least 26 million people use to watch CSI every week. I am glad it is still holding on.

  • Tony ^_^

    Random question, does anyone know what FOX is airing this Sunday? They still have a live episode of “The X-Factor” listed for that day…

  • jens2488

    @ Z both were doing worse. And both had lead ins, while Arrow is anchoring the night.

  • panda22

    Arrow lost 500,000 viewers in just a couple of weeks!….not good!
    Still second highest rated after TVD, but it’s trending down + the upcoming long hiatus won’t help!

  • Michael

    I wonder how much damage The Voice is going to do next week on Wednesday + Thursday night?!

  • Adam

    I can see Arrow going up in Viewers next week and I think it will maintain the 1.0 rating at least

  • Brittney

    I’m just glad Suburgatory wasn’t adjusted down.

  • Nikki

    The voice is new tonight?
    In why is it coming on Wed and Thursday.

  • DougF


    In their 4th episodes

    Ringer 0.6/1.50
    Secret Circle 0.8/1.96
    (Remember Vampire Diaries was its lead-in and that it was basically made to be paired with it, as they were both created by the same author)

  • Pepper

    Still happy with SPN’s numbers, considering that it was pre-empted in Chicago and with everything on the East Coast.

  • Samunto

    Nashville won’t be the hit ABC desperately wanted it to be. Those are very poor numbers.

    Chicago Fire has potential. It needs a better lead-In.

  • Candy


    Are you insane?! Why would NBC risk losing their right now #2 drama by making a rookie mistake by moving SVU to Thursday at 10, they’d move CHICAGO FIRE or REVOLUTION there before SVU (which would be just as crazy). CHICAGO FIRE is just barely hanging on because of SVU, but I feel SVU needs to be back on Tuesdays @ 10, this “Wednesday night, LAW & ORDER/Dick Wolf” sh*t has been going on @ NBC for TOO LONG, they need to reinvent NBC Wednesday and the booting back of SVU and cancellation of CHICAGO FIRE will inspire that to happen.

    GUYS WITH KIDS should have went with ANIMAL PRACTICE (and it’s not too late for that). I’d rather WHITNEY and 30 ROCK hold down NBC Wednesdays along with two new dramas – DO NO HARM and HANNIBAL – because like I just said that NBC Wednesday = L&O/Dick Wolf night sh*t needs to go.

    As for ABC, NASHVILLE is dying because it’s in a bad spot, REVENGE was doing better on Wed. than NASHVILLE is now. NASHVILLE is a great show and it needs a night that it could fit and can handle and Sunday night is that night.

    Well on the bright side for Arrow it’s a big hit here with the frozen chosen. It premiered big on CTV Two and when a repeat aired on Sunday on the bigger CTV the numbers actually went up by 200k to 1.3 million. (1)
    The 3rd episode drew 1.8 million.(3)
    To (ballpark) compare multiply our numbers by 10 to get the equivalent US numbers. Personally I think Arrow is the best of the new shows this fall but then again I’m only watching 3 new shows this fall … the rest just struck me as meh.


  • Michael

    @Nikki, results show on Thursday for The Voice!

  • Roco

    I say ABC should swap Nashville and Scandal and see how it does, if not move Scandal to Sundays and Nashville,after greys.

  • Z

    Based on those numbers, Arrow will probably stabilize at a .9 – 1.1 for the rest of the season and might dip down to .7 – .9 in the spring.

  • Mickey


    There’s also that Arrow is getting a lot more positive response than Ringer and TSC, from critics and fans alike. I read every review of Arrow I came across and all were very positive. Also, TV Guide ran its annual poll on new series, and Arrow won as the favourite, beating out Revolution in second place.

    So I don’t think Arrow will drop like Ringer and TSC did. It’ll level out at this point.

  • Oliver

    I’m surprised 30 Rock did as well as it did given the ridiculous last-second schedule change.

    GWK needs Whitney to give it a boost to survive the winter.

  • WillyWonka

    So for someone like me who isn’t so well-versed in what consitutes as good ratings on a ‘per network basis’, what is ‘good’ on the CW?

    I gather they have much less subscribers so a 1.0 would be good on the CW while really bad on other networks with a much larger audience?

  • Ariadne

    I guess TVD regained its throne on the CW!

    I thinks nothing will ever beat this show on this netqork.Ans what suprises me the most TVD not only held its audience for S2 but also improved it!
