  • Nope

    please renew THE MENTALIST

  • ToXiX

    Its always lovely to see Bob’s Burgers above a 2.0

  • DeanW

    The Mentalist looks done.

  • POI

    i think the mentalist will get renewed but cbs is unpredictable

  • Mrs Florrick

    Haha, guess there’s nowhere to hide for all the fans of The Mentalist who were blaming The Good Wife as a lead in for it’s low numbers.

  • JC

    I blame football for it. I record it weekly but keep forgetting to pad the recording. Week after week I end up with half an episode or no episode.

  • Dan S

    I don’t even watch The Mentalist & I feel bad for its fans. This show has been treated poorly after moving it to Sundays that’s the equivalent of dumping it on Fridays. It could very well come down to TM & TGW facing the bear & only 1 walks away.

  • Ram510

    What happened to The Mentalist? Maybe a move to Friday can save it

  • POIFanatic

    Simpsons doesn’t do so well after football. FOX should have used some other show all season. Simpsons has been sampled by everyone and they know whether they like it or not. It won’t gain new viewers.

    I think many forgot that Mentalist still hasn’t gone on an hiatus after last week’s break at a crucial Red John episode which really felt like a midseason finale. That’s my fan excuse bingo (used for the first time) since even I had forgotten about it until I saw the ratings. CBS’ shoddy treatment is appalling and its now coming back to bite them in the butt.


    @ Mrs Florrick

    I know you know how much I so agree!

  • James_Ableton

    The Simpsons & Family Guy were in top form Sunday night!! Two hilarious episodes that should have been programmed for November sweeps.

  • Angie

    Haha mrs florrick yourself. Mentalist when on at right time beat its lead in. As soon as it does not you toot your horn. At least it doesn’t use the ‘oh Tgw is a emmy fave so will get renewed’ crap. Mentalist was only new drama last night so wouldn’t be surprised if viewers thought it was a repeat. But hey each to their own. 6 times it bettered tgw and its also had 5 really late starts. Its stuck it out despite all crap its had to put up with.

  • Joe

    I don’t understand why CBS issued a death warrant for The Mentalist. That time slot is where shows go to die.

  • Frank


  • Stephen Judson

    So that means when Cleveland leaves, Bob’s Burger is next.

  • Mayorofsmpleton

    The Mentalist is done. The Good Wife moves to Friday. I’m calling it.

  • The End

    The team I wanted to win The Amazing Race, out of the remaining teams won. Fantastic result there. The underdogs, who were against the 3 team alliance performed admirably.

  • TVGuy

    Man, I love watching The Simpsons consistently beat Family Guy.

    Why is football overrun always so damn high?
