    Oh my God, “Family Guy”! So close to breaking a 3. And “American Dad!” almost tied “The Simpsons”. I wish “Bob’s Burgers” had adjusted up, though.

    where are the finals for saturdays shows? i see the finals for friday and sunday but no saturday. interested in the final ufc on fox numbers

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

    The football delays help The Good Wife. They only hurt The Mentalist because it is pushed out of primetime.

    Do people even look at the ratings for CBS Sundays, or do they just assume late starts will necessarily have a negative effect?

    DO NOT CANCEL THE GOOD WIFE!!!!! Lord, what is wrong with American’s not watching good scripted shows?!?!?!

  • Mac Breck

    Renew The Mentalist!

    I stuck with The Mentalist DESPITE it being moved to Sundays with the inevitable, random length, football delays. 99% of the time, when a show moves to the weekend, I DROP IT, like I did with Shark when it was moved to Sundays for Season 2 (23/Sep/07) and got cancelled after only 16 episodes. Normally, I WILL NOT put up with football delays, but for The Mentalist, I made an exception. I have to timer record everything, and random delays are a real PAIN.

    I was glad when CSI:Miami moved to Sundays, because that meant it was likely not long for this world. I dropped that awful show after watching S5E01, 18/Sep/06, “Rio.” Horatio and his co-starring sunglasses, Boa Vista’s jumping to crazy conclusions, the tobacco filter over everything and the idiotic storylines got to be too much to take. Unfortunately, it appears that some of the people responsible for those illogical storylines and over-stylized, loud music have moved on to CSI: NY. :-(

    I have nothing against The Good wife, and if it’s on and I’m there and come across it while channel surfing, I’ll likely watch it. However, I’ll go through hell and high water to watch The Mentalist. I wish CSI: NY would get shape up and get renewed, too.

    CBS I am begging you..please renew the Mentalist. You will have a lot of disappointed fans. Simon Baker is great as Patrick & so is the whole cast. Besides he is a heart throb.

    CBS please cancel TGW.
