    WOAH at TBBT!! I think its the highest of any scripted show in network so far this season?

  • Eugenius

    people are just morons for not tuning in for Last Resort, it’s an amazing show.

    and once again Grey’s Anatomy outran POI :D

  • RyanCanada

    omg at BBT, whats with all the sudden burst in ratings? didnt it used to average 14-15 million viewers now all a suddem almost 18 million? whoa BBT is a monster

  • POI

    TVD BEATS NBC AND ABC UNBELIEVABLE THE CW IS RISING FROM THE ASHES, TBBT IS A BEAST HOPE IT HITS 20 MILLION SOON.

  • DaxJackson

    5.7! Are you kidding me? It’s not even that good! Why is it so popular I honestly don’t get it.

  • Freyja


    And TVD beat Arrow as it should.

    oh please TVD only wishes it was just as good as Arrow ;)

  • Jere

    I agree LR is a great show. Too bad. Hope at least get an ending. Glad for most of last night. Great night of tv

  • Oliver

    Series high for TBBT.

  • Petar Ivanov

    Yep. For the first time POI is #1 CBS drama of the week, even with NCIS.(if friday or sunday CBS drama beat it will be insane)
    Only UP from here please. Best episode this season. And CBS will rerun next week one of the best if not the best episode of season 1 – baby blue where Finch was on extazy and hilarius if i am right.

    TBBT is INSANE beast. INSANE!

    Miley Cyrus REBORN TAHM. She must find female lead role is some of the new sitcoms next season.

  • RyanCanada

    its sad when the office used to have 8 million viewers and like 4. something demo, did that show ever die after steve carrell left.

  • TVDxItachi

    @Max, Arrow lovers are saying non sense like its the best new fall drama and non sense like it better then TVD. Yikes, Stephen Amill wouldn’t even exist without VD. VD is number 1 baby.

  • SarahL

    The Big Bang Theory beat The Walking Dead. Ah, Scandal never holding its miniscule increase. I think this is why ABC put out that press release so early.

  • Oliver

    ABC has to be thinking about pulling Last Resort with those ratings.

  • John A

    Have to hand it to Greys it grew 2 demo points from Last Resort. Not many shows can do that.

  • eridapo

    Season to Date averages…..

    Average of A18-49 Demo
    Network Non Scripted Scripted
    ABC 1.839 2.452
    CBS 2.571 2.614
    CW 0.408 0.72
    FOX 2.571 1.991
    NBC 4.013 1.81

  • Michael

    John A, Supernatural did it when it was on Friday lol.

  • Oliver

    I think Daniels/Schur leaving for Parks hurt The Office as much as Carrell leaving. The writing went seriously downhill afterwards.

  • Max

    @TVDxItachi

    Alright, I understand what you are saying but most of it (if not all) is purely subjective. The truth is that TVD and ARROW fans should both be supporting the other show and be happy because more success on the CW overall = a good chance the network survives. I don’t see the point of bashing one over the other if you want your specific show to remain on the air.

    It’s not nonsense, it’s only an opinion, and I think Arrow is 10X better than TVD any day. But I will say this at least TVD vampires don’t sparkle ;)

    “ABC has to be thinking about pulling Last Resort with those ratings.”

    At this point, they might as well air out the episodes in December.

    ABC has to be announcing their midseason plans next week. I’m surprised nothing was announced today.
