    Where we’re you the last few weks when POI was beating Greys on a consistent basis? Oh that’s right, you had nothing to say..

    I’ve heard that a lot today, but actually I commented just as much as I regularly do. Thanks for the false accusation, though.

    Well, I didn’t post last week due to business, but all of the weeks before I did.

    Glad Scandal was not adjusted down. Grey’s is doing well. I wonder if Shonda will do another “disaster” type of season finale or will be just low key

    Great for TBBT! I haven’t checked the season averages, but is it the #1 show of the season (behind football)?

    @ Melissa

    “Business”. Eh I’ll just take your word for it. Don’t f feel like arguing over petty things.

    I was here last week. Even on weeks when Grey’s lost, I always had something to say to rile those fans up. :D

    @Wow. Community scores a series low, then the P&R wedding can’t even hold those viewers. Sad.

    How do you figure that P&R didn’t hold the Community numbers. Community 1.1 and P&R 1.4. What am I missing?

  • a p garcia

    BATB rating are OK for a show on the CW.

  • rob60990

    Grey’s Anatomy returns March 14, but Scandal returns March 21.

    Kinda surprised Zero Hour didn’t drop below a 1.0. Maybe they’ll keep it around the full 13 (or not).

    I see TVD is back up.

    Ah, so you admit to being a troll! Haha! I knew it!

    Oh how convenient that you weren’t here to post when POI won the time slot! :)

  • frostycold

    Maybe NBC should run their primetime line-up during the day and their daytime line-up at night. Can’t get any worse…

    Yes, sorry I have a life. I was there every time POI beat Grey’s except for last week.

    @garcia: they aren’t, especially because it has the best leadin aka tvd. Shows like Hod and Tcd do jist as good with more competition and no lead in. But go on making up excuses for your Fan Excuse Bingo. Whatever floats your boat.

    “Ah, see now you’re contradicting your original stance. You said that high ratings does not equal quality, so I offered a list of awards to prove quality, and now you’re saying quality does not equal ratings. Just accept that you’ve been proven wrong so that you don’t continue to sound foolish.”

    Erm, so before I was saying that “high ratings does not equal quality” and now my altogether different and in no way exactly the same opinion is that “quality does not equal ratings”?

    Yep, you got me there. Foolish me.

    Irony can be ironic sometimes…

    @Lol

    I’m not a fan of any of these shows (although I’ll admit that TCD gets a major negative vote from me for being a prequel to the dire torment that was Sex and the City) but I have to think that BatB has a much better chance at renewal, based purely on the three shows that have already been renewed. The CW seems to be abandoning its teen soap image and heading towards being a more action/sci-fi/fantasy genre based. In that case shows like HoD and TCD will no longer suit the style of the channel. HoD is probably doing well enough to stick around for another season but given a choice between the soapy TCD and the more fantasy based BatB with relatively equal ratings? I think I know which one has the better chance.

  • iggy

    Just wondering…why doesn’t CW have any half-hour comedies?

    Because CBS runs the network in a way that doesn’t threaten to take audience away from CBS — with angsty teen shows.
