    @ Max

    Why do you hate Revenge so much ? I agree some people don’t like the Show and it’s their Right but YOU say every Sunday (and every time an ABC’s Show beat it) how much you hate it. Look, I don’t watch this Show either and I just don’t pay attention.
    This website is about the Ratings. You can say whatever you want about Revenge’s Ratings but stop saying you hate the Show and just be Happy for the Fans. I hope you know it won’t get canceled until 2 or 3 years (maybe more).
    And don’t forget last Sunday Revenge aired against NFL and a 1.7 is good considering the competition.

    Gleee dead?

    Youre insnane. Theresa huge following on social media and oline , and live viewing .

    Also, it’s all FOX has..

    Robin, well I didn’t say it did. However, CW goes crazy when their programs win these fan voting awards. Especially, since their programs will never compete in legit critic awards shows.

    Highest-rated live action show then. I forgot how well Animation Domination was holding up amidst the train wreck of Monday-Friday scripted.

  • Jaime04

    Wow – Haters to the Left!
    Glee is far from dead. It will definitely be renewed for Season 5 and maybe even a 6th. Fox typically looks at averages around 1.7 as ‘bad’ and as said above, Glee is at 2.4

    Lol@ Max.

    He really seems mentally unstable if the highlight of his life is some tv show beating another tv show.

    Beauty and the Beas was great last night. and good to see it up in the raints too. TVD was good as allways. I agree with the others that Beauty and the Beast has gotten better over the season.

  • Vanessa

    @karin Person of iNterest is not weak. It may not be strong on repeats but not waek either.

  • Petar Ivanov

    @POI’s repeats so weak

    I guess you mean #1 broadcast and CBS drama on reruns this season.

  • Mi

    I wouldn’t hurry to call B&tB safe yet, it is still very much on the bubble and will definitely be cancelled if Cult does better. Even if it’s renewed it’ll be shipped to Friday.

  • Petar Ivanov

    We can talk and talk but MATH and THE FACTS don’t lie. POI is #1 drama on reruns this season and only one drama that hit 1.9 TWICE. Period.

  • Ultima

    Fun fact for the Idol haters…

    While the premiere was down sharply last week, this week Idol is only down ~10% from the second week last year, which is in line with its typical year-to-year declines.

  • Vanessa

    @Peter Ditto!

  • Steve-A

    Scandal was a repeat, Revenge was new and they tied. And how exactly is Scandal a failure??? LOL!!!

  • Leondre

    I saw promos for Scandal on Sunday and Wednesday. That and having a new Grey’s as a lead-in is probably why Scandal did so well.

    P.S.- I love Scandal and Revenge.

  • Ultima

    only one drama that hit 1.9 TWICE. Period.

    But which is better, PoI’s two 1.9s or NCIS’ 2.0? ;)

  • Petar Ivanov


    By the way from Greys fan like you to talk about other shows repeat numbers is really stupid and show how low some Greys gans are when nobody even talk or comment their show.

  • Petar Ivanov

    @But which is better, PoI’s two 1.9s or NCIS’ 2.0?
    I miss that if ncis hit 2.0 but still, overall repeats think POI is a litle up i guess you can check all reruns until now.

    Its not so important they(POI and NCIS reruns the same way)But what make me angry is stupid Grey fan(who i guess know how ‘good’ are Greys repeats) but again try to use his/her hate for other show. As i said it so many times if your show is going down you can not blame other shows. Its just stupid. Its part of the life. Better be happy if your shows has hit with 10 seasons etc. Be smart and accept inevitable all shows start to declain even hits most of hit dramas after season 3. Why some people doesn’t get it that is the question.

    so glad BATB didn’t adjust down, it was probably because the last episode in december ended on a shocking cliffhanger so a lot of people tuned in to see what was going to happen. I wouldn’t call it safe unless it pulls 0.7s more often.
