    Another solid night for ROE :)
    # 4 in the 18-49 demo!

    I think the Carrie Diaries is done. It has gotten a few .4s now in a row.

  • Mon

    FOX got lucky with The Following. Elementary and even Revolution aren’t as strong and consistent as The Following.

    Matt: the Bachelor finale was only up from last year because it didn’t have to face The Voice this year.

  • Ash

    Like another poster, I too wonder how long The Following can keep up the premise, but it has turned into a stable for Fox. Question is how long will it last?

  • Networkman

    Yay! The Following has its own following! lol I’m really glad that this show is not lead in dependent. But, it has to remain at 9pm because of its dark subject matter and intense scenes.

    Also, I’m really glad that Rules of Engagement returned for a final season and will get to the 100 episode mark. It really brings in decent ratings. Other networks would want a comedy that could garner 2.1 and over 7 million viewers.

    bachelor was great…haters surely didnt watch. i watched 1st three followers and could not believe how horrible it is..so predictable and unrealistic…i so hope the voice kills it.

    Terrific for The Bachelor. Surprised the ATFR didn’t see an adjustment down. ABC made a great choice picking Sean. He was a nice guy who didn’t have an agenda. ABC was so stupid not to announce he would be on DWTS last night when they had all that young audience watching. Instead they announce it on GMA. Not that I think him being on will do anything for that show’s ratings.

    I’m not sure why people assume The Bachelor being up will be good for DWTS. I expect around a 3.0 for the season premiere since it won’t have to face The Voice.

    The Following surprises me yet again. If it can hold steady vs DWTS & The Voice, I’ll be more impressed.

    I really enjoyed Deception. It was a great Who done it? crime drama. But there is no way it returns with NBC now having Chicago Fire and Revolution. Also Grimm out performs Deception and it aired on Friday night after the horribly rated Fashion Star. Also it is looking more likey that Law & Order:SVU will return for another season.

    HAHA @TCD knew it was never going to get a 0.7 ever again,the episode hit once and the fans we’re getting excited what a disaster!

    and yes I’m going to keep repeating myself every week until this crap goes bye bye

    tho if only it would go lower it would be hilarious

    when does the verdict for TCD? we all know it’s going to be the same rating every week

    it even premiered bad


  • Dan S

    I can’t believe the season finale for The Following is next month Apr 29th. It’ll make a good double feature with Revolution on Mon for at least a month. Aside from TF last night was otherwise meh.

  • Ram510

    I figured Rules of Rngagement would be adjusted up. Still solid ratings for being in a sea of repeats.

    I know at this point it seems a renewal isn’t likely but I hope it gets renewed and Patrick and David can still do their own shows

  • rob60990

    not me btw. ;) ^

  • iMember

    @rob, The Bachelor is doing better than Once, Revenge, Greys and Scandal. What a sad world we live in. ):

  • ann

    The Following is so addictive…happy to see that it’s holding up so well.

  • s0303

    i really like the following also…something actually original on network tv compared to the 20 police procedurals on cbs…

    happy the biggest loser adjusted up…only nbc show that has stayed at 2.0 or above since the voice ended…hopefully they will make next season longer after cutting this seasons episodes a bit…

    90210 isn’t all dead. The new time slot hurt the show the DVR ratings is the prove in the putting. I who have been loyal to the show since the beginning don’t even watch it @9pm.

    i really like the following also…something actually original on network tv compared to the 20 police procedurals on cbs…

    I like The Following as well, but come on, it’s basically just 24 with Kevin Bacon (it’s still awesome, but that’s what it is).

    Also, CBS only has ten cop dramas! ;)

    “90210 isn’t all dead”

    If the word dead in TV parlance is the same as the word cancelled then it is in fact dead. The funeral will be held on 5/13/2013 however.

    The Following stole Cult’s thunder.

    CBS has 11 cop dramas + l legal drama + 3 hours of laugh-track + 5 reality + 2 hours of repeats on Saturday.
