    YES! 1 & 2!!! American Idol STILL has the power after 12 SEASONS! Never have seen a show to be this dominate after 12 seasons! Go AI!

  • Dom

    GLEE the 15th biggest show! Wow. YES the show has jumped the shark…but DAMN- still great with the 18-49 crowd

  • David C

    I think we can say for sure that after three seasons, the audience has found the quirky The Middle and I say, it’s about time. Hate Patricia Heaton’s politics, love this show.

  • joe

    u are all morons i dont think any1 knows the actual ratins ive gotten about a millon websites all saying diffrent things.

  • Pavelsauce

    @joe

    You sure aren’t making a case for yourself if you can barely even spell.

  • Suzie

    @pavelsauce, good one-lol

  • Jason

    That interview with Hillary and Obama on 60 Minutes by that hack, Steve Croft, didn’t result in impressive ratings. Are the American people finally seeing through the MSM bias?

  • Randy

    Hey Joe, maybe you got it all wrong since you obviously can’t write, which means you probably can’t read. “u”, that’s not a word. There’s no period after morons. “i” should be capitalized. “any1″ is not a word. “ratins”???? What the hell is a ratin? The i is not capitalized and you did not use an apostrophe in ‘ive”, it should look like this “I’ve”. “gotten” is not a word. What’s a millon?? “diffrent is mis-spelled. YOU FAIL! YOU GET AN F! Moron…
