    nice adjustment up for bob’s burgers

    hope it can return to above 2.0 with regular scheduling

  • Survivor Fan

    Do we have finals on the Survivor reunion?

  • RandyL

    Series low for The Simpsons. I can imagine the Spring will be just as bad. Time to put this dinosaur out of its misery.

  • Survivor Fan

    How much did ratings go down (on CBS) during the Obama Speech? I know that it could be called Fan Excuse Bingo, but I bet that his speech cost Survivor at least two tenths of a point. Not that it matters, as Survivor will still be renewed.

    The Simpsons!!! :OOO

  • John A

    Why doom and gloom for the simpsons? It will rise in january.

  • ChannelDante


    You have to be craaazy to think the Simpsons is going anywhere anytime soon. It can still pull high 3’s out of its ass on occasions.

  • RJ

    One of the weirdest nights I can remember.

  • Joseph A

    Great numbers for both NBC & CBS ,
    ABC & FOX though , not so great
    I have little issue with the low FOX numbers but ABC put nothing up to compete ,

  • MBurns

    In NY the Simpsons and all the other 8:00pm shows were preempted for Obamas speech that’s what caused the low ratings.

  • j

    Last season, after the winter break Simpsons was lucky to get mid-2s.

  • Tony ^_^

    Ouch at “The Simpsons”! Series low and first time it’s ever fallen below 4 million viewers… :o
