    TBBT and TVD are the big winners! It’s really impressive for both shows! Well done!

  • robin

    yay TVD up a bit in viewers and also beat arrow in viewers this week too

    Nice that TBBT beat Modern Family. Glad that TVD stayed steady.

  • Matt

    why cant POI ever stay at a 3.0????

    and great for BBT!

  • Jamie

    Is 2.5 Men doing any better than Rules of Engagement?

  • Ariadne

    I said it before but i’ll say it again:


    (sorry Arrow.You’re still a good show)

  • Albert

    Poor Xfactor!!

  • Ram510

    Are people enjoying this season of Vanpire Diaries

  • victor hugo

    Amazing for TBBT and The Vampire Diaries and good for POI

  • Matt

    Big Bang would do like 17-18 million viewers and a 6+ demo at 9pm

  • Lane

    ROE was lucky is it got a 3.0 so yes 2.5 men is better.

    I still hope Arrow can stay over 1.0 :(

  • Christina

    @ram510 I personally love it a lot more than last season. Episodes 2 and 3 were amazing and yesterday was pretty good too just not as good as the last two

  • Neil

    The Actors and Actresses on TBBT will be getting a pay rise soon!

  • Michael

    Big Bang Theory is a MONSTER HIT! I don’t necessarily get the appeal, I don’t find it funny. I guess I’m simply in the minority lol.

  • Matt


    Arrow will go to a 1.1-1.2 next week…Halloween and the NJ/NYC blackout effected it

  • DougF

    Walking Dead laughs at Big Bang Theory’s 5.2

  • Matt


  • Michael

    “the NJ/NYC blackout effected it”

    Um, that applies to every show this entire week, not just Arrow lol.
