    I predict POI and Elementary stay where they are next season. The Mentalist wasn’t moved until after 4 years.

    @Petar: “Great shows should stop in their primes or close to that like friends, lost etc. When this is not happen because show is still profitable and network want more money fans start looking like losers and bitter(like now) when more and more fans leaving once great show.”

    Says the guy who is one of the most bitter and nonsensical commenter on this site.

    Zero Hour is in a terrible ABC timeslot. Will be killed there.

    Yeah, I think people just looked at the 15% slide in the opening week and thought, okay at that rate, it has about 3 or 4 more years to run. However, that slide has now turned into a 35% slide, a lot closer to the edge than anybody could have expected.

    First of all, all i hear from TVDs are just opinions. I actually think TVD is doing better then last years. But who knows im not too good with numbers. Okay TVD dropped this week but its going to get a 1.4,1.3 or maybe 1.2. Like it usually gets. Arrow fell down to a 0.9. When has tvd fell down far? never. SO clearly tvd is still and always will be number 1. aND WAIT TILL THE NEW Sereis spin- off of the vampire diaries ” The Originals” regain the tvd audience again. Because klaus is tvd character favorites. So how do you like that arrow fans and supernatural fans. Idk if its just me but arrow is going to do poorly next season. And please dont compare tsc to any other shows because it got over 1 mil views on every episode with an exception of 4 or 3 episodes. Plus, The secret cricle has a stronger fan base than beauty and the beast. Really, if Batb gets caned no one would really care.

    Just stating the truth^-^

    I hope they pull Zero Hour as fast as they did Do No Harm. I couldn’t even get past the first 1/2 hour of ZH. The story is convoluted and the acting is bad.

    Daybreak never finished it’s first season. I was one of the few that could appreciate what it was, but most people tuned out because the show looked like it was re-running every week. You are right that ABC didn’t know how to present it.

    When did I miss the memo that Grey’s and Scandal were competing for ratings? Who cares who beat who the shows are from the same network,bothare from Shonda Rhimes and dfferent context so pitting them one against the other is ludicrious. They are doing very well so Kudos to both
