  • The End

    Good job Amazing Race. Season 22 is currently being filmed, and will be shown as usual next year, so no worries there :)

  • DanaK

    So I guess The Mentalist doesn’t get a rating for this episode?

  • John A

    Good Wife Steady at least.

  • touchsucks

    where is mentalist?

  • Fed

    Very nice for Amazing Race. The worries are for next fall season, because CBS may shorten it to just one cycle a year. And no one wants that.:)

  • peter

    Do we know how much The Good Wife does in the 25-54 demo because that’s CBS main target and it will probably decide its fate.

  • CBSViewer

    Where is The Mentalist ?

  • Max Vrany

    Enough of The Mentalist must have been out of primetime for it not to be included in this report. The last time that happened, it was in the list of shows Bill and Robert got and was added as soon as the numbers were available. Be patient.

  • CBSViewer

    So The Mentalist got a 1.4 and 8.07 million viewers. The Show had less viewers than CSI: NY but the same demo. I don’t know for which one it’s bad news ?

    I REALLY hope that CBS will pair The Good Wife with Blue Bloods on Friday for a full 5th season. I know they have been already very generous to the show, but still, I do think it could work rather well with the Friday lineup. Long story short : it’s just such a great show, I don’t want it to end, especially not without warning and a proper series finale.

  • Max Vrany

    The Mentalist is there now. 1.4 Ouch!

  • Jiji Moran

    “The Mentalist” was doing great at it’s regular mid-week timeslot, and now that it was moved to Sundays nobody is watching. CBS has done such a disservice to this nice show.

  • Thomas T

    I think we all just found out that Red John is actually The Cancellation Bear.

  • lll

    The good wife on Fridays is a good idea.

    @jiji moran
    Sundays is killing the mentalist. Hopefully next year it will move into the good wife’s slot or moved to a respectable night.

  • Bob

    I think they will give The Good Wife one final season. It really is a great show. I hate that they have both Revenge and The Good Wife on at the same time. I would imagine that they share the same group of fan base. Anyway, The Simpsons came in last place in the timeslot? Wow!!!

  • DW

    with all the talk on here that TGW if it last next season , will be moved to fridays , then your going to have to put one of the ncis or person of interest in there to get a rating because you cant put a new show in there with the wacky fall lineup in the fall and for those who say well you put TM in there , no you dont , it will get the same rating as TGW. you want to improve the slot not keep it at the same level.

  • Philip2

    Which show will get the much-desired Sunday, 10 PM timeslot on CBS next year if TM is indeed to be canceled? CBS doesn’t have a show that would do better than TM in that timeslot, well, at least not one they’d really want to move there. Maybe H5O or TGW, and even that’s questionable for different reasons.

  • #1MentalistFan

    Sunday night is really killing The Mentalist. Hope CBS gives it a chance and waits to see if it can survive this football season and maybe bring back big ratings after the season.

  • tv#1

    I don’t know why CBS bothers to show two scripted series on Sunday nights. They could easily drop either The Good Wife or The Mentalist and still be able to fill the night.

  • #1MentalistFan

    Not to mention that The Good Wife isn’t helping it out at all.
