  • edson

    Haters making up excuses for Scandal’s numbers in 3… 2… 1…

  • rob60990

    The only show on ABC in danger of an adjustment down due to football was Last Resort since Oakland is on the West Coast and the game started at 5.

  • Melissa

    OMG. Scandal kept its 2.5, and Grey’s Anatomy bested Person of Interest as usual, despite not being adjusted up for the first time all year!

  • Ricardo

    Still not very good for TVD. Hope it goes up next week!

    Scandal! :O

  • ToXiX

    Lol @ Scandal haters

    So much for dropping during the finals.

    Pissed that 2.5 Men went down but its still a 4.0 and how many shows can still do that.

  • Michael

    Vampire Diaries will be back to 1.3/1.4 next week!


    TVD is still down A lot

  • The End


    Person of Interests 25-54 rating > Greys Anatomys.

  • DeanW

    A new low for Elementary :( I think all new Shows on CBS will get the axe this year.

  • gary

  • Jenny

    Wow, at Scandal! Hitting a series high, and all the socialmedia buzz it’s been getting I bet you ABC is taking notice. I expect way more advertisements for this show!

  • rob60990

    “Person of Interests 25-54 rating > Greys Anatomys.”

    Who cares? Grey’s slaughters POI in the 18-34 demos.

  • Bri

    POI took a tumble no surprise as the numbers had football in it.

    @petarIvanov said “#2 drama dor the season for CBS. MWith a shot for #1….if not this season next 100% sure bet.” not happening, yet, better luck next week!

    very happy for scandal numbers did held. Elementary is so not a hit.
