    “2.8 14+ million viewers = cancel

    a real shame.”

    Who exactly is suggesting POI will be canceled?

    Person of interest is the best! I missed it do to a funeral wake, but its not available on the xfinity app on my xbox 360 and i can never find it on the web.

    a show with 14 million viewers every week is completely safe. any advertising for PR and for political issues go for viewership not ratings. also, its good for advertising cable tv shows as well as tv service providers. its not good for advertising for the GAP, but for 14 million viewers there is no show on network tv that would get cancelled

    …I hope not. I guess I was just hoping for an early renewal.
