    YES! Castle didn’t get adjusted down like so many of you would say it was! A season high in total viewers! :)

    Good for DWTS adjusted up. Still pretty good for a show in it’s 16th season. You won’t see that often.

  • Melissa

    Nice DWTS!

  • halloween

    Carrie under a million….CW thanks Josh Schwartz for another flop

  • omabin

    I did not expect DWTS to go higher than a 3.0 to be honest. ABC really should wisen up and send it to Sundays where it won’t have to compete with the voice. It would also be perfect counter programming to everything else that is going on at Sundays. Revenge would do just fine Mondays at 9 and the results show could still be on at 8.

  • Andies

    DWTS is only doing good this time around because it doe snot have the Voice as it’s direct competion

  • Aniin

    Carrie Diaries is the new Nikita constantly getting adjusted down.

  • Bizarro

    TCD just fell under a million, not good for it at all!

  • Sarah

    Bones :)

  • JacobYates

    Carrie Diaries and Deception adjusted down.

    Five 0 still solid and climbing !! Aloha!

  • guest

    DWTS got a lucky first week with “The Voice” not being on yet. The cast is terrible, half of them cannot dance…watch out below cause this thing is going to slide every week.

  • OWL

    The Carrie Ovaries is done.. I don’t really see them renewing such a low rated show.

  • forg

    No demo bump for Castle but increased in viewers and I think this is going to be case as well for Body of Proof, huge total viewers bump but not much difference in demo

    2 Broke Girls is weak to be the 9 pm anchor, it would have been better if they just groomed it to be their 8PM anchor once HIMYM ends. I wonder if CBS will move 2.5 Men back on this night

  • John A

    Nice to see Castle steady. Decent for The Following. Kind of sad its Fox’s top rated show. 2.5 is weak.

  • JacobYates

    I love the picture. Following adjusted up and Kevin Bacon just fixes his tie like, ‘**** yeah!’

  • John A

    Nice to see Castle steady. Decent for The Following. Kind of sad its Fox’s top rated Drama. 2.5 is weak.

  • JacobYates


    It says that HOD earned a .2/0. How can the rating share be a 0 but the actual rating be .2?

  • Michael

    Mark Pedowitz needs to end his work relationship with Josh Schwartz!

  • Amy

    No more programming from Fake Empire.

  • rob60990

    DWTS is far from dead people.

    Time to move TCD to cancellation because it ain’t coming back for sure now.

    At least HIMYM cracked a 3.0 last night. CBS needs to fix this mess unless they want to fight with FOX for 4th on Monday.
