    The AFHV rerun did pretty well.

  • Shepherd

    how does that 4.0 compare to last years pro-bowl? seems low for any football game, particularly one held on an annual basis.

  • DW

    since all the talk yesterday was how bad TGW is or how bad it did ratings wise , I watched family guy and american dad last night. boy how those shows have fallen. there just dead weight now quality wise. i’m wondering if people just have it on in the background while talking to people online.

    As long as The Good Wife doesn’t get cancelled………

  • SJ

    Considering its lead-in was a .9, I’d say The Good Wife did OK.

  • John A

    Wow The Mentalis grew 0.4 at 10pm from TGW. That makes TGW look bad.

  • Rebecca

    I watched the Hallmark movie, and it was okay. Might watch the April 21st one, though, that has Zach Levi from Chuck!

  • Illinois

    Please CBS cancel TGW it’s a good Show but it’s now time for it to end !

  • rob60990

    LOL at the Simpsons. Sure gonna miss being propped up by football games every other week.

    David Walton just tanks everything doesn’t he? Why ABC was not new last night I haven’t got a clue. They don’t know wtf they’re doing over there. They’re a mess.

  • MichaelChickless

    Definitely time to renew The Mentalist!

  • Fake Me Out

    For those missing 666 I’d say you’re more likely to see the final episodes than not at some point in some fashion … they began airing them in Australia last week so it’s likely only a matter of time before they get aired in North America … in some fashion. :-)


  • Juan

    Wow who would have tought OUAT would repeat the same as NCIS from the same lead in, they both should have repeat better though

  • Zakk

    The Mentalist!! They should renew it asap :D

  • Dan S

    I don’t watch The Mentalist but agree it’s earned another season. It’s been able to grow its audience from TGW in both ratings & overall viewer numbers. I don’t even think it should be moved to Fri but moved up to 9pm on Sun.

    The Pro Bowl is terrible. Worst football on earth. The players just use it as vacation time. It needs to be cancelled. I don’t care about the ratings still being good. It is an embarrassment to the nfl.

  • Lisa

    @Shepherd, an article from a couple days ago said that last year’s Pro Bowl got a 4.3, so a 4.0 is not really out of line.

    I enjoy the Pro Bowl. It’s a fun game. And of course the players use it as “vacation.” Don’t like that? Just don’t watch it instead of whining.

  • Showtime

    Best Mentalist of the season last night, show has to be renewed. It feels FRESH again for the first time in 2 years…

  • Red Jane

    The Mentalist is looking awesome but with so much Red John content this season I can’t help but think that this will be the season where Jane finds RJ and the series ends…

  • Douglas from Brazil

    The Mentalist has more chance to be renewed than The Good Wife now.Even without the football delays the series hits low.

  • Woody

    Looking at it simply from the ratings POV, if it’s between TGW and TM (that’s an IF, as I still think both could be renewed) then I can only see it going The Mentalist’s way. TGW hits low even when it has a bigger lead-in (and loses most of it) where as The Mentalist constantly builds on TGW. Every week.

    tbh I’ve been pretty confident of The Mentalist’s renewal all season.
