    I thought NCIS had a 3.0 among Adults 18-49 but it’s written it had a 3.3.

  • Dennis

    Yes, what’s right? 3.0 or 3.3? Than 3.3 then NCIS up vs. last week!

  • Max Vrany

    CBS PR copied and pasted the wrong number. The Voice got the 3.3. NCIS did in fact get a 3.0. Still impressive though.

    Gotta love the spin on VEGAS – boy do they want to milk that till it’s canceled :)

    Vegas kicked ass last night. I dare any of you to watch it online and tell me that the broadcast nets can’t produce shows as good as cable. Quaid and Chiklis were awesome, and the ending was shocking as hell.

  • Herb Finn

    Yeh,that ending was cable-worthy
