  • Stephanie

  • MichaelChickless

    POI held all of its lead over Grey’s.

  • Petar Ivanov

    POI = so strong, so hot, so good. Best crime drama and new 9 pm king. And with so litle promotion. abc promote scandal like crazy.

    CBS win the first night of the february sweeps for the first time since 2006 year. 7 long years.

    Congratulations for CBS. I guess next week will take #1 broadcast spot? Its well desetve victory and wins. This year is best network without any competition. Next season fox can strike back.

    Interesting is it possible scandal takes the 9pm slot next season

  • Brandy

    Scandal is a hit baby!

  • rob60990

    Scandal won’t be with Grey’s Anatomy forever. Grey’s will very likely end next year. Then we’ll see just how “loyal” its fanbase really is. :D

    If you thought NBC’s Thursdays were bad, wait until next week when Community returns.

    OY! No adjustment for Idol again?! Last year the show’s final 18-49 ratings were adjusted upward EVERY time! They did get a 70,000-viewer boost in overall viewership…

    …But regardless, 13.8 million is the smallest total viewership since the 1st season, and I’m afraid we have not seen or heard the other shoe drop yet.

  • jake

    If BaTB keeps that rating or even increase I’m sure it will be renewed.

    TCD, 90210, and Cult will be canceled, mark my words.

  • Rocky

    Yay! POI stays strong.

  • John A

    TVD dont adjust up anymore. Still strong at a 1.3.

  • eridapo

    Great news… TBBT was adjusted up. POI remained unchanged.

  • Michael

    Are people seriously still doubting Beauty And The Beast renewal chances? Lol. 0.7 is not great, but this is targeting the middle ground for the network into safe zone.

  • bsp


  • John A

    BATB might actually be renewed.

  • Petar Ivanov

    POI was very close to be adjusted up a tenth. It was 15.62 and finals are 15.71 last episode 3.3 was with 15.76 i think.

    @rob60990 I always see you hating on Scandal and other shows while all of your shows are flopping.Get a life
