    If that show were in the 9pm slot, my bet is it’d be over 20 million and 6.0.

  • Matt

    Big bang would have 20+ million and over a 6 if it were at 9

  • TVDxItachi

    Eat shxt Arrow Lovers or should i say TVD haters. Next Episode will be up big time.

  • SeAN

    Good for Grey’s Anatomy considering the poor lead in from Last Resort.. 1.2 to 3.2 is big.

  • Kavyn

    Man I wish Last Resort was doing so much better. I’m hooked on it! :(

    Congrats to CW for third place! They’re slowly creeping their way back up.

  • Andy

    TVD is always adjusted up. Weird.
    Die Gleeee, Die! However, I was kinda liking the new season, mainly bc of the new kids (including Alex Newell’s awful character Unique)

  • João Paulo (@JPaulo645)

    TBBT is huuuuuuuuuuge and no adjustment for POI, this also awesome.

  • Max

    What is this battle brewing between ARROW fans VS. TVD fans? It is very interesting.

  • JC

    Poor Last Resort (I think it is good tv). The hotness that is Daisy Betts deserves better.

  • rob60990

    Scandal adjusted down. :D

    Grey’s back on TOP where it belongs. #winning

  • Michael

    John A, it’s like this every week lol.

  • JC

    And TBBT is just a tv behemoth. Those ratings are stupid good by today’s standards.

  • Rach

    Not only thrilled that TVD adjusted up and is number 1 on the network again this week, but to beat ABC and NBC? Wow. TVD’s demo isn’t even that high compared to what it often gets, which just highlights how bad 30 Rock and Last Resort are doing. I follow a few actors from Last Resort on Twitter, and they were tweeting and re-tweeting none stop yesterday about how they had a chance of a full season if people would just tune in for yesterday’s ep…that didn’t go so well. The way they were talking, it sounded like the ratings for this particular ep were crucial. No idea if it means anything, (probably doesn’t), they were just really badly pushing yesterday’s ep in particular, saying how important it was people watched it, as if it was a make or break kind of thing for a full season pick up.
