  • Max

    Repeat still beats a new REVENGE.

    O. Happy. Day. :)

  • John A

    TBBT repeat adjusted up. NICE and good numbers for TVD.

  • W

    CBS reruns did well!

  • John A

    Ah no Scandal tie Revenge not beat but yeah impressive for Scandal but Greys was new too so.

  • Linda

    So Happy for Elementary it is a very good show and did great with a re-run

  • D

    @Max the did the same in demo, plus revenge aired against competion.

  • Linda

    TVD was Watchable Last Night So I am glad it did well

  • Tea

    Go Grey’s Anatomy

  • Clarke

    A 2.6 for Glee isn’t that great, especially after American Idol. Sure, the show is doing good for FOX (simply because FOX is having a bad year), but the show certainly has lost a TON of viewers and the show is only in it’s 4th season – at this rate I think the 5th season will be its last.

  • Just

    oh well, looks like Scandal did not beat Revenge

    Scandal is a massive failure

  • SJ

    Glee at 50% retention. So much for compatibility. The show’s running on fumes. One more season and that’s it.

  • Shepherd

    Well, that was a little anti-climatic.

  • AgentVee

    I’m waiting for Max’s reaction when Revenge is predictably renewed, honestly.

  • JulieDawn

    Right. Just going to allow myself a little happy dance over BATB not being adjusted down. :)
    Yes! Brilliant! Now we just have to keep it there – and maybe, just maybe start aiming even higher.

  • edson


    Are you out of your mind? Massive failure? I guess Scandal haters are back.

  • Sarah

    I wish they’d put Bones back in Glee’s spot.

  • SRD


    Higher’s good. I like higher.

  • Dan S

    I’m sure the only reason Scanal did as well as it did is because new viewers were catching up on past episodes. It didn’t hurt that it’s only competition was Rock Center & a repeat of Elementary. A little surprised P&R didn’t do better with 2.5 Men in reruns.

  • karin

    POI’s repeats so weak

  • karin

    and Glee is dead,obvs.
