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

    The measured share was less than required to be rounded up to a 1.

    The Adjusted Down Diaries…. this show is more than done. 0.4 every week

  • Deo

    I´m happy to see I was wrong about Castle:) No adjustment down and an increase in viewers:) I know next week won´t be that good, but I´ll take what I got!

  • Austin

    Im really sad for TCD, EVERY SINGLE WEEK IT GETS ADJUSTED DOWN…… for one week could it please stay the same or get adjusted up??? :( I still really hope it gets renewed or if not, maybe abcfamily or netflix will pick it up….it most certainly would bring a different demographic of viewers to netflix since House of cards and the Werewolf show (forgot the name) are way different demographics. I’m still hoping CW will renew it though! I love you, Carrie Bradshaw

  • Dillan

    I will miss you TCD :(

    the biggest loser’s 2.7 will double most of the nbc shows this week…really good for a joke of a network…i still don’t get why nbc cut the biggest losers episodes by more than half this season, they should have cut somewhere else…

    happy the following was adjusted up :)

    A sound (if a bit bold) way for ABC to begin to get out of 4th place next season:


    DWTS/BACHELOR when DWTS ends 2hrs each


    DWTS/another profitable unscripted program when DWTS ends
    CASTLE-time for this solid player to help something new
    NEW SHOW-10:00

    Tuesday:-Riskiest move with the sitcom block. ABC used to be strong with sitcoms here.

    MIDDLE-why not ABC start the new night with one of their best sitcoms?
    NEIGHBORS-if renewed, if not, new sitcom
    NASHVILLE-10:00-should improve upon BOP’s ratings


    LAST MAN STANDING-should do OK here
    REVENGE-should improve upon NASHVILLE’S ratings


    NEW SHOW-SHIELD-should improve upon the multitude of ABC drama failures.


    PRIME TIME- another unscripted program later in season
    20/20- 10:00

    DWTS gets insane numbers for total viewers.

    TCD needs to go, such a flop

  • SueK

    Considering Bones and The Following were up against DWTS their ratings were rather good, IMHO. Considering Castle had a big lead in and was against H5O…well 2.2 is OK I guess.

  • Noel

    Wow Nikita did better than Carrie Diaries.

  • Networkman

    I’m no longer certain if CBS should have 8 comedies on their Fall schedule. They may need to consider moving two comedies from Monday over to Thursday and then simply having one hour of comedy on Monday night. 2 Broke Girls need a boost. The comedies are no longer doing great against DWTS and The Voice.

    8pm HIMYM
    8:30 TAAHM

    8pm The Big Bang Theory
    8:30pm 2 Broke Girls
    9pm Mike & Molly
    9:30pm *New Comedy-Mom

  • Bob

    I wonder if Dancing with the Stars is going to beat the Floppy Voice? The Voice was not even getting American Idol numbers.


    @ rob60990

    I think you’re way off base w/ CBS–no way they’ll be fighting w/ FOX for 4th

    Again we disagree w/ your 9:00 theory as all nets have their strong (or strongest) show @ 8:00, then often noticeably down @ 9:00

    We seriously disagree on this point


  • Matt

    Glad for DWTS for managing over 17 million viewers and a 3.2 – only 3 tents down from last spring BUT 7 tents up from the disaster of an all star edition. LOL. I do predict that DWTS will drop to around 15 million and a 2.6.

    Glad for Castle also…


    @ Bill


  • John A

    TCD adjusted up 1 week. Its not a conspiracy. Its dead.

  • John A

    The Floppy Voice? Lol

  • Grey

    Wooo! No adjustments for the 10PM hour.

  • JR35

    DWTS may be in its 16th season, but it’s only been on eight years. Still decent, of course. :)

  • Dan W

    I think it’s so funny that people say The Carrie Diaries is done because it has had so many 0.4’s in a row, but when people bring up that Beauty and the Beast has been getting a few 0.5’s in a row, people freak out about how it’s still doing good and it used to get 0.7’s! As far as I’m concerned, these two are in the same boat. One will either get a pity renewal for schedule filler or both will be canceled.
