    @Janice first of all revenge a lot of competition and scandal doesn’t

  • JulieDawn


    Okaayyy…then I’ll take a dead salmon any day!!

    I wonder if the people slamming Beauty & the Beast have watched any of the last few episodes or if they just enjoy spewing vitriol. The show will never be rocket science because it isn’t aimed at Mensa scholars. It’s improved tremendously over the premier and is a very enjoyable romance. This is the CW not HBO.

    Scandal > revenge.

    Max is right

  • aciel

    thats because revenge has a lot of competition going on

  • aciel

    actually brian
    its scandal=revenge

  • aciel

    scandal and revenge both got 2.4s in their winter finales at least revenge always adjusts up in its final. revenge has never adjusted down 3 tenths.

  • Melissa


    revenge has never adjusted down 3 tenths.

    That was possibly the most ignorant remark I’ve heard all day. Both shows ended up with the same ratings for their winter finales, so the fact that Scandal was adjusted down to that rating is irrelevant. It’s not Scandal‘s fault there was a preemption.

  • Tellitlikeitis


    You know that H50 had no competition, don’t you?

  • aciel

    i know they both had the same ratings for their winter finales all im basically doing is giving max a taste of his own medicine

  • rob60990

    Scandull lmao i love it. I have to steal that. It describes the show perfectly.

  • andy

    I can not believe that some people are happy with BATB 0.6 for the first half of the first sezone. is simply pathetic

  • Alan

    Up All Night has awful ratings. Cancel it ASAP.

  • JulieDawn


    Hear, Hear!

  • aciel

    REVENGE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> scandal the reason for its ratings spike is because of the shooting of the president and the aftermath usually gets higher ratings

  • aciel

    i can’t understand how scandal managed to adjust up this high in a short period of time just a few episodes ago it was getting a 2.0 but then all of the sudden it goes up to a 2.7. is it because of lots and lots of promotion or is it the plot event of “who shot the president” storyline ever since that storyline has started scandal has been on the upswing.

  • John A

    Wouldnt both Scandal and Revenge both be renewed at these ratings? Why this constant stupid war?

  • Fed up

    I used to go to Zap2It to view the ratings but then left because of all the name calling and childishness of the site. So I went to this site. Now, there’s the same name calling and antics here. Does anyone know of a site I can go to in order to see JUST the ratings and not a bunch of people unzipping with rulers in hand to prove whose show is better?

  • Bitter Ringer Fan

    @Fed up. simply don’t read the comments if it annoys you, just check the ratings and go.

  • aciel

    @fed up its simple u dont even need to read the comments u could just check the ratings and go. maybe i need to start doing that as long as this physco max remains
