    talking about reruns
    Elementary – amazing
    L&O – decent
    Scandal – horrible.

  • Jayjay

    American Idol must have gained some viewers in the 2 minutes it overran.

    @ BigFlop

    “Scandal-horrible” ????? How?

    Good job BATB. Extremely consistent and decent numbers for both repeats this week.

  • forg

    Community makes a good case for renewal this week,

    Good for Community. I love this show almost as much as I like my goatie.

    You’re an a$$hole. Person of Interest did great. You have always hated on this show so stop commenting about it. If you’re not on board say so.

    NBC has to be the saddest network around. People are actually cheering and saying wow over a sitcom getting a 1.5. Really sad that NBC could be so destitute that people could actually get excited over a 1.5. More a reflection of NBC’s ineptitude than the show.

    Fans of Fox’s Fringe would have FAINTED if that show had got a 1.5 anytime in its last few years.

  • MichaelChickless

    Go Community!

    Come on Person Of Interest!

  • NBC Fan

    American Idol’s Thursday average is now a 4.3

    Overstatement. Person of Interest did fine. Its 2.8 is a decent rating and no cause for panic. However, I think most were expecting the show to be up into the 3’s this week, considering it had decreased competition, so it didn’t do “great”.

  • Samm

    Wish WB/CBS WB would put new episodes of POI on iTune or On Demand.

    community sucks

    and once again, melissa is on one of her typical psychotic rants against a cop show that airs at the same time as one of her precious soap opera wieners that has cast members jumping ship every year
