  • ragincajun

    Is there any wonder why CBS wants a third NCIS? Now, if they were only smart enough to introduce the “Mom” character played by Anna Farris in an episode of TBBT . . .

    Love all these shows..how did Vegas do? Great show

  • DenverDean

    @Michael – Yes L+7 determines Season Averages.

  • Ekras

    Vegas is all but cancelled…. remember it’s all about how the ratings do relative to other shows on the network – and it’s nowhere even close. They will Axe Vegas in hopes of getting another show that can pull in 20 mil viewers.

    I agree with Richardg; Blue Bloods should bring back Jennifer Esposito, (whose medical problems forced her to take a temporary leave of absence). Congratulation to NCIS and The Big Bang Theory for their huge ratings! NCIS was the most watched scripted television show in 2012, (according to Time Magazine and the Neilsen ratings), and 2013 looks like the winning streak will continue.
