    @Amanda Kondolojy

    How I Met Your Mother had a 3.4 in the preliminaries as well.

  • Mon

    2 Broke Girls averaged 3.5 this February. Not bad at all!

    The Following looks really strong for FOX.

  • Aron

    Good night for fox, they must be pleased, all they have to fix is the rest of the week now, and a replacement for bones

  • Simon

    I’m shocked that FOX hasn’t renewed The Following yet given how well its doing! Are there any planned breaks soon? Or is FOX running it straight through without any like they did with 24?

  • zerg

    Great for The Following and FOX!!

    WC pathetic….0.4 1M and 0.3 0.58k

  • jake

    CW, cancel TCD, 90210, Cult & B&B, the Network has hit rock bottom!

  • Ultima

    I’m shocked that FOX hasn’t renewed The Following yet given how well its doing

    Maybe next Monday in order to try and draw in new viewers while CBS goes into repeats?

    Are there any planned breaks soon?

    No, they’re even airing an original while Bones is in repeat. I can’t imagine that they’ll air it against the NCAA Championship, however.

    How I Met Your Mother had a 3.4 in the preliminaries as well.

    That was my bad! The text/headline was correct not the table. It’s adjusted now.

  • Dinaminjo


    I think they said all 15 episodes will be aired without a break.

  • Clarke

    The Carrie Diaries is now on life support. The CW has some insanely tough decisions to make with all their bubble shows. Maybe they will just throw all of their bubble show’s names in a hat (HOD, B&TB & TCD) and the first 2 picked are cancelled?

  • AJ

    Yay… The Following was adjusted up!!! :)

  • John A

    Thats TCD dead anyway. Yay for The Following.

  • AaronExplicable

    Great for the following. There’s some ridiculousness happening in that show but I’m still curious as to how it plays out.

  • Ruan

    “The Following” beat “Mike & Molly”! About time.

  • Unicorn

    The Following is doing really impressive for FOX. We’ll see if it’s going down dramatically once The Voice returns.

  • Dave

    Yay for The Following! :D

  • Dillan

    TCD :( I can’t see it getting renewed now.
