    Go TVD!

  • Max

    Go SCANDAL! :D

  • jamie

    B&TB should get higher ratings than that. Nontheless, still good night for the CW and NBC.

  • Kourt

    Scandal and Castle neck and neck with the demo this week: 1.9

  • Melissa

    Glad Grey’s Anatomy was adjusted up; now it’s four distant tenths ahead of Person of Interest. However, I worry that Once Upon a Time might get a higher rating and register as the week’s top drama.

  • POI

    called it with tvd.

  • Melissa



    I love Scandal, but let’s not pretend that a downward adjustment into the 1s is a positive thing.

    TVD this year is stronger than ever. 1.6-1.3-1.3-1.5-1.5… Last year was much weaker!

  • robin

    Why did I know TVD would adjust up lol. It’s amazing that this show is actually pulling better numbers than last year, which is rare for a serialized network show.

    Yay for the vampire diaries!! The big bang theory is phenomenal! And greys is doing very well as well still. I am sad scandal never manages to hold up… Oh well. Surprised beauty wasn’t adjusted down. Let’s see if it can really mantain the uptick in coming weeks.
