    Glad about Nashville. Wish it was at least 2.0 though.

  • Mr Mikey

    Uh oh.

  • CBSviewer

    Still good for CSI :)

  • Phill

    IDOL still rocking

  • Maria

    And Criminal Minds goes up to its premiere rating… :D

  • Wright

    I was hoping SPN would be adjusted up. Oh well still a good episode and rating.

  • DenverDean

    CSI still +.3 from last week. Trashville -.3. ABC would be wise to move it to Sunday at 10/9. (Guaranteed Red Widow is a major flop in the making.) NV has some life to it. They should salvage it.

  • Dan

    Wow at The Neighbors, I expected it to stay at a 1.8-1.9 but it may actually be renewed for Season 2. I still see it as 50/50 since it may go the “Better With You” route but otherwise not too bad/

  • Shepherd

    Holy surprise for CM, CSI, and Nashville. Small adjustments, but suddenly their numbers look a lot better than this morning.

    I wonder if viewers lost interest in Suburgatory or if it was just a better fit with The Middle. Guess we’ll know in a couple of months.

    The Neighbors will be lucky to pull a 1.5 next week.

    The Middle. :D

  • Bri

    Criminal Minds is doing great and against very good compétitions in Modern Family and American Idol and with a rerun as a lead in, not bad for an 8 years old show :)

  • POI

    ABC Shouldnt have taken Happy Endings off the post modern family spot it was doing much better than suburgatory is doing now , ABC excs are fool you dont try to fix what is working and that is what CBS does and they dont have problems like ABC do

  • Michael

    Nashville really does have great music! Hayden Panettiere should consider becoming a Country music singer, along with being an actress, of course.

  • Anthony

    Arrow did well.

  • Mike

    I hope Big Bang theory destroys American idol when it returns next week.. I can defiantly see America Idol dropping to the low 4’s this season an low 3’s next season which will hopefully be the end of that and the x factor

  • Carl

    .9 seems good for SPN, considering everything. They might want to have more stuff going on in the first half of the episode though, since the last two episodes have had a drop at the halfway point.

    Does anyone else think Nashville might have been better off on a network like FOX? The show is stabilizing but doesn’t fit ABC in my mind.

  • Mon

    The Middle up vs week 2 of American Idol. Say what?!?!? :) CSI is still strong after adjustment.

  • F.

    Modern Family up! Yay!

  • jake3988

    2.6 for a 10pm these days is good for CBS. Much better than its last new ep, anyway.

  • Crispie Treates

    I think a simple fix for NBC would be Whitney and Guys with Kids moving to Tuesdays at 9p.
