    ABC’s bouquets of roses should arrive at Shonda’s door in 3…2…1…

  • John A

    Pity TVD didnt adjust up.

  • Nik

    Was hoping Scandal would be steady (it has been during the last couple of eps with Greys overruns) but a 2.7 is still pretty good.

  • Al

    Ohhhh so Scandal didn’t rate higher than Greys… They might as well write a whole new press release now.

  • Jenny

    Awww it was going to be the first time Scandal beat Grey’s.:(

  • israelCD

    GREY’S ANATOMY Higher Than SCANDAL as it should be !
    U Better Deal With It !

  • BigFlop

    ouch, poor Scandal down :D

  • Honey Badger

    If POI holds and next week vs Idol really should(not could) take wednesday at 8 as anchor show. In season 3 dramas grow to their prime in most cases.
    8 POI
    9 NCIS Red
    10 CM

    Survivor on sunday 2 cycles at 8 or one cycle with AR.

    So, it wasn’t this time that Scandal beat GA. Still very solid for Scandal though. I would love to see both Grey’s and Scandal over 3.0s though. Poi is very solid as well, and a little less bad for Community. I think there is a chance that it was hit more than usual last night and that it settles around 1.5/1.6. That would be a renewal.

    aw, bummer. it wouldve been special. but oh well. it could very well happen sometime this season.

  • Matt

    American Idol is LOWWWW

  • Tea

    Go greys :)

  • Blake

    Still an all-time series low for American Idol. And yes – it’s only February. How low will it go by April?

  • s0303

    pretty much all the midseason shows have been tanking…maybe networks should rethink their strategies…

    no adj. for cw :( batb is a goner…

  • eridapo

    Where is Max now… Lol

    @Peter Ivanov

    Unless they expand to two hours of comedy on Thursday, I think POI is staying put. They are not going to premiere two new shows one after the other (Elementary is not staying put) and I don’t see any of their current shows being likely to move to Thursdays. Also, I think POI could use one more season of stability there, even though the Wednesday at 8pm slot does sound good considering there is zero drama competition at the time apart from arrow at the cw.

  • Edward

    NO Beauty and the Beast! Hoping for better ratings next week!

  • Charmed

    Bye B&TB, hello TCD season 2!!!!!

  • alim

    abc should make greys last season for next year and move it to 8pm and put scandal at the 9pm slot and launch a new should on the 10 pm slot
