    The Simpson’s were so low simply because it did not air in 60% of the country.

  • DEF

    I read on an article on IMDb that the Family Guy episode that was suppose to air on this Sunday will on the next one, anyone know if this is true?

  • SoCal

    That’s got to be an all-time low for the Simpsons

  • Melissa

    Great night for CBS. Also, football was so high Sunday! 9.0 for CBS’ overrun and 8.7 for NBC’s Sunday Night Football – awesome!

  • Melissa

    Also, The Simpsons‘ 1.7 Sunday pulled its seasonal average from a 3.1 down to a 2.9!

    It’s so sad to The Simpsons this low :( I just don’t understand WHY?

    You should try reading the comments.

    I bet ABC misses Desperate Housewives with these Sunday ratings, since ABC was trying to get it for a nithn season but the shows producers turned down the offer!

    I bet ABC misses Desperate Housewives with these Sunday ratings

    Desperate Housevies averaged a 2.7 last season and had ~20% year-to-year declines in each of its last four seasons.

    Revenge, with a 2.6 rating, is performing better in that time slot than Desperate Housewives would have been projected to do.

    Scandal, which likely doesn’t get renewed if DH is still on the schedule, is only barely underforming DH’s projected ratings (2.1 vs 2.2) and likely costs significantly less to produced.

    I doubt ABC is missing Desperarate Houswevies.
