    I’m simply happy with Supernatural’s numbers. This show is an 8 year old CW show that has (mostly) the best and most loyal fandom. Honestly, I’m glad Sera is gone because the show has had it’s moments this year but I see new life. That’s hard for any aged show to do but SPN is doing it.

    “Since show is dropping dramatically, it’s time to start using ‘flop’.”

    Please go look up the definition of a flop.

    By using that, you’re saying CSI, Survivor, Grey’s Anatomy, Two & a Half Men, DWTS, The Office, etc are all flops because they’re not pulling the monster ratings they did in their prime. That makes no sense.

  • Jesse Cardoza

    Nice for Chicago Fire.

  • Tessa

    I’m rolling my eyes at the people taking hoki’s comment seriously.

    Why am I the only one who sees hoki’s comment as what it is: a mockery of the overuse of the word flop and its mash-up with show names on this site?

  • Ultima

    where do you get these numbers?

    Live+7 when available (Live+SD otherwise) for all regularly scheduled episodes, including repeats.

  • Flame

    Hm, Idol down another 0.8 – continue that tomorrow and 2.5 Men has a fighting chance. Not even talking about TBBT.

  • Once & Again

    @Sutton & Emma
    I hope you are not a Lying Game fan because i don’t expect those fans to be stupid like you.

    Modern Family is the best sitcom out there and it will go up eventually. And NBC will continue to be a disaster network, so don’t get your hopes up.

  • Nick

    Modern Family is beginning to become the next Glee. It’s starting to crash – ABC has got to be worried. Goes to show that bad writing really can kill a show – Modern Family has gone from smart and ingenious to dull and dreadful in just three seasons.

  • DeanW

    The CW will Renew Supernatural in the coming weeks. I hope it’ll beat Smallville :)

  • BigFlop

    @ultima thanks!

  • rob60990

    Whitney can’t even beat ABC comedy reruns. Seriously, I’d LOVE to have what you guys are having.

  • MichaelChickless

    Good job Chicago Fire, and CBS.

  • Mon

    Nice to see Criminal Minds adjusted up. They had one of their best episode ever.

    Every episode with a little bit more of JJ than usual is great in my opinion. Last night was no exception.

    The Middle and Modern Family will have their 100th episodes next season. I hope they fall on the same night. It’s going to be epic!

  • Once & Again


    Have you even watched Modern Family this season? Every new episode is great. And don’t compare ratings with quality because if it was like that a show like Last Resort would not be canceled.

  • rob60990

    Sock puppetry? I KNEW IT.

  • Max

    CHICAGO FLOP still nothing to boast about, even with the adjustment.

  • Saísse

    Supernatural up!! Very Happy and it was deserved, season 8 is consistent, interesting … And I can’t wait to see the new episodes! :D

  • Melanie

    Woot! Great to see Supernatural adjust up!! Rock solid ratings! I’m glad Arrow is back up to a 1.0 — it should be higher — really good.

  • MichaelChickless

    @tom “MF is dead”

    Yeah, probably only 3 or 4 more seasons left.

  • Joseph

    “American Idol” must be missing Paula and Simon!

    They had a lot of appeal.

    If the show gets renewed for another season, it will likely be worse: Ryan Seacrest is expected to leave the show at the end of this season to join NBC’s “Today” show to replace Matt Lauer.

    Reportedly, if Seacrest moves to the “Today Show”, the “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” special he hosts each year supposedly will also move to NBC so he can continue doing it.
