    All I care about is POI and Revenge are renewed.

  • aciel

    u are just pathtic do you have anything better to do in your then to compare revenge and scandal? ok we get the fact that your show is doing well but can you just leave revenge out of this.

    Max continues to make a fool of himself I see. :D

    that’s not my only issues with the show at the moment. Its that I hate how the love triangle (which is easily the weakest part of the show) has taken center stage this season while the main storyline is in the background. It’s like TVD went from being a cool supernatural show with a love triangle in the background to a show about a love triangle with a supernatural background. and speaking of the cure and sire bond there are so many plot inconsistencies with them. the sire bond is suppose to be really rare yet it happened TWICE to damon, how convenient for the show. and since it only happens if the person has feelings as a human before their turned then why aren’t there thousands of sired vampires out there or why wasn’t damon sired to Katherine. and as soon as elena turned into a vampire there’s a cure

  • easy

    Congrats to B&B,holding steady and bouncing up:) Good sign :)

  • TVDxItachi

    @Robin, what makes you think Damon wasn’t sired to Katherine, Just like Sage was sired to Finn, all the evidence suggest Damon was sired to Katherine!! And the sired bond seemed rare at first but the reason behind it was given, so its not about being rare, its if you love the Vamp that turned you, you will be sired! And remember, Even though there is a cure, what are the chances of Elena ending up as the Vamp that takes the Cure, i highly doubt that will happen! Still to eachs own, i myself usually have to rewatch TVD scenes right after the episode finishes airing, cause everything happens so fast, i always hate it at first, then i digest what happens and come to love it. Just like last night.

  • glover

    Still great numbers for Scandal! YAY!

  • BH


    I am pretty sure there is no “cure” It would just like moonstone curse.Totally different than what it should be.
    As for SB.its RARE but yet it has happened to Damon TWICE (LOL).And I agree. it was to make Damon and Elena happen without assassinating Elena’s character and still keep Stefan and Elena alive.
    The triangle is REALLY killing the show. they should just get it over with. Put an endgame couple right now and focus on much better storylines.

  • lll

    GO POI! Your ratings are consistent.
    GO VD for adjusting up.

    Stop with the Grey’s / POI comparison. No one wins when there is a tie in the demo.

    POI and Revenge are far from getting cancelled. Don’t worry.

    Example #1 all new shows without good lead-in COLLAPSE in last 3-4 seasons. This season even more.

    The Vampire Diaries, Arrow and Once Upon A Time beg to differ.

  • david

    TVD beating NBC and ABC last night is great news for the CW. Scandle is doing really good for ABC now. A show at ten geting over a 2.0 is really good these days.

  • robin


    yes I agree with you the love triangle needs to go because their just pushing it in our faces right now when they could be using that time focusing on better storylines which is why I think TVD has been down the last few weeks I love TVD when its all fast paced and full of twists and suspense and all the teen drama the love triangle have taken that away from the show

  • david

    Beauty and the Beast was really good last night too. I like that Vincent did go to the wedding and met Katt there after all.

  • robin

    *NOT* all the teen drama

  • B plus

    Glad BBT was not adjusted down. :)

  • CrimTV


    If they end the love triangle, either way TVD will lose many viewers from either Stelena or Delena fans.

    Last Resort made even less sense this week than usual, with the XO running around the world, and the island thug claiming he could get all kinds of “pirates” in to run supplies. Plus CHINA, no less! Is there an island blockade or not? LOL It’s a joke. :-)

    Plus now we know the wife is alive, so we know the XO’s gonna sleep with the French chick, thus finally screwing up his marriage. He’s doomed! They need to kill him off! LOL! :-) What a show… Autumn Reeser still the only character I care about. :-)

    PoI was pretty good. Fusco finally showed some nerve to that HR creep. Still waiting for Root or Reese’s ex-CIA partner to turn up.

    Beauty and the Beast was pathetic. Total love story filler. Still can’t get over Nikita’s grim “Cleaner” Roan being Cat’s father, smiling and all! Weird casting! :-)

    TVD was good. The whole “sire bond” thing is there because it’s connected to the creepy professor’s secret plan. That’s resolved now since everyone’s dead, so the professor’s plan and the introduction of Silas can now take place.

    Can’t wait for Caroline to kick Hailey’s butt for the neck break! :-) Hope they don’t kill off Hailey, Phoebe is SO smokin’ hot! :-) Sorry to see Tyler’s hot mom knocked off, too. :-)

    Scandal was just adjusted down 0.1 from its ALL TIME series high, this fan is pretty thrilled about that. Every wk there’s excuses why it keeps being high, but other then a couple weeks ago when the initial shooting happened while there’s been an uptick in the promo it hasn’t been extraordinary at all.

    And I agree with others, you guys are gaving Max the power, he’s not the only one who is so gungho about his show, just ignore him. I haven’t been here long so maybe there’s a history there but looking at his posts I really dont see anything different from other ‘haters’ of other shows.

    Revenge has been disappointing lately but I still like it and know its gonna be renewed now Im feeling better about scandal chances.

  • db

    POI and Elementary were not adjusted down that much!

  • Nick

    I wish you guys would wake up and realize that “Max” is just someone at TVBTN posting under an alias to get discussion and debate (and therefore page views) up. There’s no other way that “Max” could actually be first every single week. It’s probably Sara Bibel posting immediately after posting the finals.
