  • THE OLD MAN

    All but nine shows in the 18-49 demo were CBS. WOW!

  • tv_viewer

    Why is Grey’s Anatomy #15 and Person of Interest #16? Person of Interest had 3.725 million viewers 18-49 and Grey’s Anatomy had 3.633 million viewers 18-49. Person of Interest actually beat Grey’s Anatomy on December 13, 2012.

    @tv_viewer

    Maybe a little typo, maybe Grey’s Anatomy actually got 3.833 18-49 viewers, or a mistake of putting it above Person of Interest?

    @tv_viewer

    Apologies, the gremlins of bad sorting got me. The numbers are correct.

  • Flarikker

    Boy, the X-factor is turning out to be a real dog compared to The Voice. Could this be Simon’s swan song?

  • Phlox

    I think they will cancel X Factor.

  • Silvio

    Where is Survivor Reunion on the table???
