    TCD has more chances than batb lol

    Without Glee, FOX wins Thursday Night! I think we should expect these results next week as well when American Idol runs for 2 hours once more.

    NBC should just cancel 1600 Penn and move Go On behind The Office. Also once Guys with Kids ends, instead of showing Whitney repeats, NBC should move The New Normal to that timeslot. It feels more like a 8pm hour show anyways.

    i really like batb, but it’s a goner :(

    @THE OLD MAN

    Then why not enlighten us to all those other noms that I “forgot.”

    Also, a win is always much better than a nom, so gloat it out!

    Sure! …

    Alma Awards (5 noms) for Ramirez
    Critics Choice (1 nom) for Devine
    Directors Guild (4 noms) for directing
    GLAAD – Can’t find a full count but numerous wins and noms
    Grammy’s (1 nom) for soundtrack
    PRISM (3 noms) for Chambers and Reaser
    Producers Guild (2 noms, 1 win) for Shonda
    Satellite (5 noms, 2 wins) for various cast
    Screen Actors Guild (3 noms, 3 wins) for various cast

    I think that covers every award you didn’t mention. Let me know when POI tops that with even nominations.

    “PoI won’t run for 10 seasons like Grey’s will, you’re so obsessed with that show is a little frightening, tbh.”

    Grey’s, of course, has the advantage of being a by-the-numbers hospital romance drama, meaning that as long as the writers can keep inventing new ways for the doctors to get in and out of relationships, they’re fine for another season’s worth of story.

    And I really hope POI doesn’t drag itself out for ten years. I prefer my shows to know when to call it a day, y’know? Not continue on just because they can.

    @Melissa

    You’re really hung up on the whole awards thing, aren’t you? I judge quality based upon what I think, rather than what I’m told is good by a panel of people who may or may not share my taste in television and (based on long experience of seeing nominations) pretty much always go with the safe “popular” choice anyway. Grey’s Anatomy could win a Nobel Peace Prize for all I care. Still wouldn’t make it a well written show, in my opinion.

    @ Melissa

    As I’ve asked you several times before, I wish you would stop pulling me into your POI bashing as I have never even hinted that I’m a POI fan ever at all.

    The only awards I have ever followed were the Oscars & I have one book that covers TV ratings that only goes up to 2007.

    You’re the one consumed with bashing other commenters & try to pull others into your cesspool.

    As you’ve now proven, Max isn’t the troll!

  • Phill

    YAAAY GREYSSS pleae sit down scandal xD

  • Brian

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

    Amen to that.

    Oh, really? Perhaps it was a different old man who wrote “I’ll support the crazed GA fan & go with a 3.1-3.2, but it will be toast sooner rather than later Go POI!” on a Grey’s Anatomy poll in November (http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2012/11/15/predict-the-ratings-for-tonights-episode-of-greys-anatomy-poll/157943/comment-page-2/#comments). You think you’re entitled to bash Grey’s for no reason, but I can’t make logical arguments against crazed POI fans.

    @Jorge
    I know it gets better and better each episode just like Ringer did last season. I’m just so sick of shows that keep on getting better and better creatively each episode and viewers keep on decreasing. I hope it doesn’t get cancelled, the CW has some tough decisions to make this year. All of their shows that have not been renewed are getting .5 or lower.

    And the nominees for “Crazed Fan With Handy Dandy List Of Awards That Are In Someway Supposed To Prove Quality Rather Than Basic Popularity” are…

    Elementary is getting better and better. Last night’s ep was one of the best so far.

  • greens

    I watch BATB from time to time, but I am so tired of hearing that it is probably going to be cancelled you can’t enjoy it, I say just cancel it and get it over with.

  • a p garcia

    In my opinion Raj’s girlfriend on TBBT doesn’t cut it and she should be replaced ASAP.

    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.

  • Melissa

    Correction: I meant “do not” equal quality, not “does not”.

  • mmel

    @Nathan
    I think Scandal returns in 3 weeks, they have not made that clear yet.

  • Declan

    @ Melissa
    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..
