    So much for Scandal rising this week. :D

    Will the POI fans gloat about tying Grey’s Anatomy despite having a lead-in more than 4x higher? POI isn’t even the highest rated 9pm show on CBS despite having the best lead-in on the network.

  • Michael

    TVD is solid, as a rock!

  • Dillan

    Yay for TVD!

    I don’t watch Scandal but those ratings are still pretty good considering the show was consistently around the 1.9 mark before.

  • fearless

    And Criminal Minds Bested Them All!!! Hurray!!! =)

  • CrimTV


    We are forced to remind you once again that Scandal is not larger than Revenge because Revenge is not airing this Sunday, the same as last week, so you can’t compare it’s ratings tonight with the ratings of Revenge two weeks ago.

  • TVDxItachi

    TVD was soo Good last night, Next episode looks even better. Yay!!! TVD is on NetFlix Peeps, give it 5 episodes, you’ll be hook. Its too good for the CW!

  • Bri

    Yay Criminal Minds is, for this week, broadcast tv # 1 show!

  • Matt

    CBS didnt get adjusted down that much at all

  • edson

    Good for TVD and Scandal.

    Dear Max,

    SHUT UP! You’re the one causing a feud between Revenge and Scandal, when there is NO NEED for one. And any way you like it, Revenge has been averaging higher ratings than Scandal and is actually increased year-to-year which typically shows like Revenge don’t do especially when they move into a new time slot, so this is a very good thing for Revenge and ABC. Scandal is doing just as good on its own. So please, enjoy your show, and again, SHUT UP.

  • Sammy

    Still great news for Scandal. It was only down a tad (2.5) from last week. Glad it’s getting the love, it’s been great all along but these last 2 episodes have been PHENOMENAL!!!

  • Jamie

    So happy for CW.

    Max, get a grip. What does saying the same thing every day achieve?

  • Bee

    YAY SCANDAL! so it only fell 0.1 from last week’s surge. awesome. ABC should really capitalize on this sudden, big buzz for the show and show a marathon sometime. allowing people to catch up a bit and get hooked. same for nashville. both of these shows have found their stride and now is a good time to try and get people to catch on.

    not a fan of this 2.9-3.2 new normal for grey’s. ABC needs to stop shortening the promos to 20 seconds and also stop making them funny. that’s not going to get viewers excited.

  • BH

    Good for TVD :D

    TVD so steady year to year. Amazing as the show has been garbage lately.

  • Max Vrany

    We did warn you.

  • Petar Ivanov

    POI #2 drama for network TV this week tie with Greys. CM #1 for the week. Hm, strange things happen folks, NCIS is #4. Long way to go till the end of the season but this is BEATIFUL batle if you ask me.
