    yay for greys !!!!

  • rob60990

    YES GREY’S. :D

  • SVUnCI

    Sad for 1600 Penn, maybe NBC could burn off the 4 episodes of Last Caller while Save Me gets it’s act together…or maybe they should just forget it and air all of 1600 Penn except for Jan 31st if they want Do No Harm to be able to succeed.

  • John A

    Good for TVD. Its weird Idol didnt adjust up the past 2 days.

  • DeanW

    Next season of Grey’s will be its last ?

  • Ateofi

    Scandal will probably dip again next weeks, especially when Elementary returns with new episodes.

  • Petar Ivanov

    As i said it months ago USA, TNT, FX, Spike or A&E must kill for POI syndication deal. 2BG get after season 1 in syndication on TBS wich was gold mine too. Congratulation for them. But i am surprise that PoI syndication deal is still missing. With these reruns can beat NCIS. I guess WB are GREEDY again and want record breaking deal not other explanation. Syndication will help POI to grow even more.

  • Juan

    Yay grey’s, against idol only down 2 tenths

  • mark

    OMG 1600 Penn is screwed. I guess this week ranks kinda green-light the continuation of Go On, The New Normal and maybe, just maybe, Parks and Rec. In my opinion, Whitney and Guys with Kids are equally screwed. NBC needs to rethink next Fall.

    Holy $#!+! I’m actually shocked now! NO adjustment for Wednesday AND Thursday for Idol?? I don’t think that has EVER happened in the show’s history, except maybe for its 1st season.

    There is, though, a 90,000 gain in the total viewing audience (from 16.19M to 16.28M), which is infinitesimal. But what does this mean? Could it present the possibility that one or more of Idol’s future episodes runs the risk of being adjusted DOWN?!

    That, of course, remains to be seen.

  • Petar Ivanov

    I mean can beat ncis reuns. To be clear.

  • Mike

    Do hope Grey’s comes back for a 10th and final season in the fall while its still doing 3.0 rating each week!!

  • Juan

    Also great for scandal, it won’t go down next week as a big event is happening, the commercials elude to the people finding out SPOILERS that the election was rigged

  • Michael

    At this point, I don’t think anything on the CW will beat Vampire Diaries. Hopefully, during the 5th season the show will continue to be above the 1.3 mark!

  • Wright

    Glad TVD held.

  • gerry

    abc is not going to cancel greys. look at where the ratings are. and they need strong dramas right now. i would imagine that abc will beg shonda to beg the core group to renew a bit longer.

  • Tea

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaay Grey’s Anatomy still going strong :)

  • eridapo

    About Scandal….

    We should now if the recent ratigns rise will last in two weeks. It is then that we will really have some competition. Elementary will be new and will be setting up something for the SB, and on that day NBC will premiere Awake 2.0 (i.e. Do No Harm)… DNH is more than likely a goner, but I will tune to catch Alana De La Garza. Thursday at 10PM has been the least competitive slot on all network TV, so I’m curious to see how well Scandal holds up when it has another scripted show to compete against.

  • Owen

    ABC will push for more then 10 seasons. Greys is still one of their star performers. Will depend more on Shonda/The cast if it excists after the 10th season.

  • Greg

    Parks and Recreation was NBC’s highest comedy this week! Surely it will fall when Two and a Half Men returns, but that’s still impressive.
