Last week, The Following tumbled to a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating, down from a 2.9 on February 4. Will it come back tonight? It's President's Day. The show had its monster premiere on Martin Luther King Day. Maybe holidays are good omens for The Following. On the other hand, half a ratings point is a big fall for a drama with serialized elements.  It could be tough for it to mount a come back. What do you think? Make your predictions below.




  • Matt

    will stay in the 2.2-2.5 range. 2 Broke Girls will repeated crush it

  • rob60990

    NO, 2.2.

  • Greg


    Mindy will soon become FOX’s highest rated new show.

  • Joseph

    Going to go for a 2.2- hype seems to have gone

  • steve

    :( nope unforunatly I think it’ll drop to a 2.1 which is a shame as its the best new show this season stupid neilson box owners

  • erwan from france

    I hope for a 2.3 for Bones and a 2.5 for The Following

  • Shepherd

    2.2-2.3 this week. Basically steady.

    I took the 2.3-2.4 option thinking it may be relatively stable for two episodes before falling again. If it can’t find a short reprieve this week, it will be in some trouble.

  • Dan S

    I’m guessing a rebound at 2.7-2.8 tonight. While the hype is now gone it’s a solid performer for Fox. I suppose 2 factors that can bring it back down is next month. That’s when the dreaded DST returns & The Voice could take a bite out of it. I just don’t see its current competition like 2BG to be a real threat. Bottom line is this show will be back next year & not as Friday filler.

  • Josh

    The Following will hit a series low 1.8

  • BG


  • Mark

    Stable or slightly up. It’ll fall when DST + The Voice deal it a double stroke of bad luck, but four weeks in and it looks fairly healthy for a new show.

    “The Following will hit a series low 1.8″

    I know I’m being a bit soft on The Following this week, but if I weren’t, I still don’t think I could go lower than 2.0-2.1. Your BOLD statement did bring a smile to my face though.

    Bring on the Sunday prelims!!


    2.3 to 2.4 & hope it stabalizes there

  • Samunto

    a 2.5 or 2.6 is realistic.

  • moshane58

    No matter what we say its up to Neilsen box holders which isn’t far so few have the say.

    I guess 2.3, Last episode was kinda creepy with the whole 3 some deal with the kidnappers… Prob one of the grosses things I’ve seen on a TV show
