    Why is Criminal Minds marked as a repeat? Was not… o.O

  • rob60990

    The total viewers are not lined up right.

  • Bri

    Maria, the table is not aligned, look at football its total viewers was 21357 but yet nothing is shown for football.

  • Maria

    @Bri
    And the excuse for the first table, the one with the demo is…? :D

  • THE OLD MAN

    Go CBS!

    “The total viewers are not lined up right.”

    That will get fixed.

    “Why is Criminal Minds marked as a repeat? Was not… o.O”

    Indeed. The info from Nielsen had it as a repeat incorrectly. I fixed it.

    12/5 wednesday final ratings of Criminal Minds was 11.326 million viewers, but here it is 11.450 million viewers. Why “Final” ratings change weekly nielsen ratings??

  • romo

    Still a jip that fox nfl doesnt count.

    That would be #1.

  • Flarikker

    Compared to previous years, I think the Victoria’s Secret fashion show was the highest rated it had ever been. You think it has to do with the musical acts(Bieber, Rhianna, Bruno Mars)???

  • POIFanatic

    @Flarikker: Because of Bieber, the ratings came down from 4.5+ last year. Lol.
