    Yeah, no way back for Greys now. POI seems to consistently dominate.

    TWO AND A HALF MEN WILL CONTINUE TO BEAT AMERICAN IDOL.

    BURN SLOW IDOL. BURN SLOW.

    It might have dropped, but there’s never any danger for BBT. As long as the writing/acting stay consistent, it’ll do just fine. Now, if it actually had 4.0s, one might be concerned, but 5.0+, it’s fine. There’d have to be a drop eventually anyway. Now the show can just rise up again next week! Even if not a 6.0

    “American Idol” may slightly beat-out “Big Bang Theory” and “Two And A Half Men” in total viewers and key demos once “Idol” starts their live performance shows, since the Thursday edition will consist of the results (who stays and who gets voted off).

    But if it does, “Big Bang” and “Men” will be very strong number-two’s, both within a couple of share points of “Idol”.

    “Person of Interest” was amazing last night, one of the best episodes this season. As always, the acting, writing, directing; everything was top-notch and intriguing. A very suspenseful episode.

    “Elementary” was also one of the best episodes this season. It was nice to see an episode about Jon Michael Hill’s character. He seems to mostly just be there to question Holmes’ theories or use his pull as a detective to help Holmes with something.
    A very good episode, with some great acting, directing, and writing.
    The only thing negative I have to say, is that I figured out who the criminal was halfway through the episode.

    I do not mind those millions of viewers, never failed to exceed my FRIENDS. CBS attempts since 2000 to beat NBC singly with false police dramas like CSI franchise, Law and Order will always have its realism and indeed his 20 seasons the franchise CSI thing still not achieved. As for comedies like THE BIG BANG THEORY and TWO AND A HALF MEN I can not believe they are from the same network of EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND and THE NANNY: (
