    Always a treat to see Supernatural adjust up.

  • Billy

    Modern Family down to a 3.7 and under 10 million. Maybe those are good numbers for most shows, but really bad numbers for Modern Family.

  • DenverDean

    SPN holds 100% of Arrow demo!

  • Honey Badger

    Congratulations to everybody involved at tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com
    To be mentioned on ‘Suburgatory’ on ABC last night 2/06/2013 is a great accomplishment.
    Details here:


    WOW, Modern Family tied 2 Broke Girls in the demos but lost to it in Viewers, that means MF will be 5th this week

    Arrow/Supernatural are as consistant as CBS last fall

  • rob60990

    Modern Family adjusted down? WTF? 3.7 is its lowest rating since its 1st season.

    Bye bye Neighbors.

    Chicago Fire doing solid for NBC.

  • victor hugo

    Good for The Middle.

  • robin

    SPN adjusting up just makes arrow look even worse

  • John A

    Lol at Suburgatory. Modern family losing its appeal too. Strong numbers but still.

  • Honey Badger

    What ratings will American Idol on Fox have tonight going against an all new The Big Bang Theory on CBS?

    I say American Idol on Fox will get a 3.9 18-49 rating

  • timotey

    The CW finally has a night that actually works. Though I’m surprised that Supernatural skews so much younger than Arrow.

  • John A

    Great night for CW. TVD will continue that trend tonight.

  • Dillan

    That’s great for SPN!

  • Honey Badger

    Nashville on ABC 1.7 18-49 rating , the Cancellation Bear is following you now

  • Michael

    This is why Supernatural will continue to live on. This show survives on its own, not lead-dependent, whatsoever!

  • CK

    ABC should try switching Modern Family and The Middle. Having their strongest show kick off the night might lead to viewers sticking to the network for the night and DVRing Idol.

  • Honey Badger

    @ CK , you are right

  • Shaula

    Wow… I wasn’t expecting Supernatural to be adjusted up. I’m so happy! :D

  • Poweranimals

    Dang it. 1.0’s still good for Arrow but the fact that it’s lost its edge over Supernatural bugs me a little.

  • rob60990

    Maybe dumping awful The Neighbors will help ABC’s Wednesdays a bit but Modern Family isn’t really lead-in dependent. The Middle is only down slightly from last year. Modern Family is way down but I wouldn’t compare the equivalent year ago episode as American Idol was an hour. Syndication could also help Modern Family. Modern Family falling is the LAST thing ABC needs right now.
