    Yes! I’m happy that CSI still wins the hour in demo even though Chicago Fire had a stronger lead in with 3.8 demo from The Voice. NBC is pulling out all the gimmicks. It seems like The Voice is on everyday. But I’m glad that all the other shows stayed strong. I’m really happy for The CW. Arrow is a bonafide hit being tested against The Voice.

  • Networkman

    I am glad that The Neighbors kept its gain. It may have picked up new viewers from airing out of Charlie Brown last week. I did enjoy it but not as much as previous episodes. I don’t feel it was as family oriented. I kept thinking that this episode should have aired after Modern Family. I would like to see, for one time only, how it would perform at 9:30pm once again. Nevertheless, I did receive a few laughs. This show is still a keeper in my book.

    Happy that nashville kept the 2.0 i just wish it was a couple of tenths higher. Great for modern family hope it gets back into the 5.0’s


    CSI takes 10:00–Go CBS!

    How is X Factor a flop? Arent Flops canceled? Gotta love idiot commentators.

  • John A

    So CSI a 13 year old show beats Chicago Fire and Nashville thats impressive.

  • Caio

    Say all you want about The X Factor being a flop, but it’s already been renewed for the third season.

  • coolioni

    Supernatural this week was an excelent episode.
    It has the feel of season 1 and 2 when they were hunting ghosts and monsters.
    I really liked. so far this season I have been a bit diappointed, but still loved the show. I feel very lucky that Supernatural being ne of my favorite shows is doing well ratings wise and I dont have to worry about it getting cancelled.
    Next weeks episode looks like its going to be an epic one. Not only is Cass going to be back also Amanda Tapping(from stargate and sanctuary) is going to start being on the show in a recurring role as a new type of angel named Niaomi. She is by far one of my favorite Scisnce fiction actors/actresses!

    Next weeks episode should be one of the highest rated episodes of the season since amanda Tappping will ring in her fan base to the show which will proally give it at least another 250,000- 500,000 viewers (my guess of course).

    Flop Factor rolling in the deep :)

    They give it huge advantage like putting it after Voice where it will obviously do well, and then they give a full order as if they are pleasantly surprised.

    Um, no. It didn’t put Chicago Fire after the Voice. CF has been in that spot for five weeks now, and The Voice airing on Wednesday is just a one-time special deal. I’m 100% certain the bigwigs at NBC did not give CF a back order based solely on this week’s ratings, because they know that next week there will be no Voice lead-in. CF’s usual lead-in is the declining SVU which gets 1.7, about the same as CF usually gets. And NBC would’ve based their decision on that.

    Could you please not post spoilers for unaired episodes, or at least give a spoiler warning? Thanks.

  • William

    wow lookit chicago fire doing better

  • martin

    Chicago Fire is doing better than Nashville!! That’s probably why NBC gave it full season pick up!!

  • DParham

    You can thank FOX for messing up the flow of the X Factor due to incompetent scheduling. (baseball) Both the Voice and X Factor are good shows and if the execs had any sense they would schedule the shows on opposite nights so the viewers and the networks can benefit.Remember the viewers are the customers and without us the sponsors are not interested.

  • toadytoady

    Mickey, no your facts are wrong. SVU has been consistently higher than CF this season,considering CF is in the slot usually occupied by SVU at 10pm and is now at a disadvantage in 9pm slot, and considering its 14 years old and just lost Meloni, and considering CF gets advertised all the way through SVU.

    SVU ratings are 2.1, 1.85, 1.6, 1.9, 1.75.
    CF has ranged from 1.5 to 1.8.

    Maybe CF will beat SVU next week since it got viewed by a different set of people,younger.If so they can stop coupling them and give SVU the 10pm slot on Thursday and let CF hold itself up.

  • Jon

    why the big jump for Chicago fire?

  • tscchope

    X Factor losing ground to The Voice is not good from Fox’ perspective. Couoldn’t hapen to a more deserving network.

    Jumping for a joy about shows that get 1.3 and 1,0 respectively is rather misplaced. It remains to be seen whether the rating for Arrow is on the up or whether it will resume its downward trajectory. Whilst casting Ben Browder is as much a kiss of death for Arrow as, say, casting Summer Glau, it’s not far off.

  • tscchope

    Perhaps they left their TVs on, whist they went off to do something more interesting.

  • Jon

    I love to see The Neighbors picking up steam. So many people wanted that show to fail. I personally think it’s laugh out loud funny. Sometimes it’s nice to get a break from the serious and just laugh at silliness because it’s funny.
