  • John A

    TVD still No.1 on CW

  • Dillan

    Still very good for TVD!

    B&TB had some hope with its 0.8 but it’s back down to most likely being cancelled.

  • Jamie

    So good for TVD to beat ABC and NBC.

    Beauty & The Beast needs to be moved to Tuesdays at 9P.

  • Samuel

    Glad that X Factor didn’t get adjusted down!

  • Nik

    So Scandal stayed the same? YASSSSSSSSSSSSS!

  • rob60990

    Less promotion? LMAO. All that hype for Scandal for 2 weeks and that isn’t even a series high.

    Vampire Diaries still KING of CW.

  • Roco

    I agree with Max, what the haters got to say now?


    WOW b4 TVD was at 3 mil and some Now it ONLY 2 Mil

  • Austin Lauran

    Does anyone think that the only sitcoms the ABC & NBC execs should pick up are laugh track sitcoms that appeal to the lowest common denominator? Look at CBS. I read online that the only reason that CBS sitcoms have high ratings is because their on CBS & it has nothing to do with how good they are.

  • Bobby

    Extremely happy to see no adjustment down for Scandal!

  • Liam

    Holy Crap, TVD in third place. Soon it will beat the X Factor. Vany wait to see that day.

  • Roco

    @ Rob, stop hating..

  • POI

    Ouch did not expect TVD to go down but i did suspect that B&TB would because its ratings were too good to be true.

  • POI

    Wednesdays are back as the Best night for The CW!!

  • ally

    So are Beauty And The Beast’s ratings good enough 2 give it a 2nd season? Or is it still too soon 2 tell ??
    And I agree, think the ratings would be better if it was moved 2 tuesdays… (I think)
    LOVE Beauty And The Beast! Last nights eps was AMAZING! <3
