    DANG! TBBT is once of CBS’s biggest hits! I know that’s a season high. But is it a series high?? Amazing! And nooo Last Resort!! Why must you and 666 have awful ratings! Some of the only new shows I like!! :(

    TVD is HUGE for CW! WOW! 3rd place?!

  • Dóchas


    Bitter SPN fans? What do Supernatural fans have to be bitter about? Not a thing. Especially when it comes to the quality of TVD or Arrow.

  • CrimTV

    I LOVE TVD! But i’m wondering that the majority of the weeks it’s been on the air, it is adjusted up?

  • eridapo

    Is the Max that’s posting about TVD the same Max that posts on Monday’s about Revenge?

  • aciel

    scandal adjusted down oh ya baby

  • Dóchas


    Thank you. I want to laugh but I’m SMH.

  • Ultima

    Big Bang Theory is the highest rated show on television, right?

    This week? Probably.

    This season? No; The Walking Dead is averaging a 5.4, The Big Bang Theory a 5.0.

  • aciel

    @eridapo its someone else posing as max if it was max wouldn’t he be like “scandal is steady and revenge is dropping”

  • Phill

  • Petar Ivanov

    @ Big Bang Theory is the highest rated show on television, right? I’m talking scripted, of course.

    ANd unscripted too. This year TBBT will beat AI.

    I seem to remember that BBT reached a 6.0 when it followed 2.5Men, maybe two years ago or so.
