  • John A

    Go New Girl.

  • erwanfromfrance

    At least smash adjusted up ! Thanks!
    hope it will grow on feb 19th

  • Aniin

    If Emily Owens MD was stronger in the A18-49 category (like 90210 & Gossip Girl were when they could get that amount of viewers) it totally would’ve gotten the back 9 episode order.

  • Holly

    Smash was adjusted up. It’s a sure renewal now ;)

  • rob60990

    CBS is so dumb to be shipping Golden Boy to Fridays.

    The Bachelor still beat overhyped New Girl.

  • George

    Do you guys know the hourly breakdown for Smash? I know in the prelims the Futon Critic listed the first hour as a 1.2 & the second as 1.0. Just curious to see what they were in the finals.

  • cris

    Vegas has less rating than Raising hope =D

  • Max

    This makes me sad. I actually watched Smash last night and LOVED it. It’s a good quality show worth checking out.

  • Lauren

    Glad HOD keeps its 0.6.

  • Michael

    I don’t watch Smash, so I really couldn’t care less what happens to it. However, these numbers look concerning for the fans.

  • gerry

    that’s not much smash, but i’ll take an up v. a down.

  • Skylar James

    The Bachelor just found its perfect slot

  • matt

    goodbye Vegas

  • Win

    Slow and steady HoD, Slow and steady…..

  • David Howell

    90210 is looking more like bearchow than ever as the rest of the CW lineup, one show at a time, moves towards something approaching respectability.

    Vegas needs a miracle. Although getting one would be entirely fitting given the setting!

    Well, Smash’s retention out of Betty White was much better than we thought ;)

  • NewEnglandMike

    Poor Vegas. I will miss you.

  • forg

    Wow Bachelor did three tenths better than on its actual timeslot

  • Petar Ivanov

    Two points one from me one from guy i like to:

    1 from me STOP with these singing scripted/unscripted shows PLEASE. PEOPLE REJECT THEM. Smash/glee/nashvile all droping.

    2 from RG-X i will said it this way STOP with period dramas for the past please.
    Dramas about yesteryear do not connect with today’s (18-49) viewers on network TV:


  • Joe Daniels

    So long, Smash. :)
