    TCD is such a trash show.
    My God. Never watch it again. Never.

    @The Old Man (re: rob60990)

    I’m sure he meant, fighting for third. ;)

    Fox’s entire line-up has been adjusted up for the second day in a row. Weird.


    ABC isn’t getting out of 4th place next season, what with NBC having the Olympics next winter. Also, I’m sure they won’t keep The Voice off the air for so long next year and I’m pretty sure there’ll be two Biggest Loser cycles again. All that, plus football, and ABC faces an uphill battle no matter what they do.

    Plus, that is a really terrible schedule you made there. That will only cement their fourth-place status further. Those Tuesdays, especially, would crumble.

    Castle wins in both , demo and total numbers !!!!!!

  • Bobby

    Okay it’s official, Carrie Diaries gotta go!

  • J-albaadani

    The Carrie flop is dead. Under 1 million pathetic!
    BATB will be renewed because the ratings will go back up like it always does.


    @John A. You want sad. Look at NBC.

  • CarrieDiariesSucks

    Haha Carrie sucks she’s the next character to die from cancer

  • JacobYates


    So it could’ve gotten like a .4 share? I see what you’re saying.


    @ SJ

    Rob knows exactly what he means & he knows I know (smiley wink face here)!

    I’m more unnerved about his 9:00 theory, but as I’ve often said: “Oh, ROB!”

  • CarrieDiariesSucks

    josh schwartz sucks goodbye scary Carrie and cult can they not like pick up his horrid pilots

  • John A

    @TVMan Sure but Fox aint that far behind NBC.

  • Liam

    Castle the only show to pass the 10 million mark (scripted) on the night. And a season high in viewers. Hopefully the show cam keep up these ratings for the rest of the season. This season has been really good (possibly the best season to date) and its great the ratings are rising, and the ratings are near enough to the same level as this time last year, so fair play to the show for not dropping in the ratings and improving verses the first half of the season.

  • karin

    So the Following is a hit 2,5 in demo? lol

  • Kavyn

    @Paddiii I love that name over “The Flop Diaries” ahaha

  • GG

    WOW I REALLY feel bad for Carrie and the LEGACY of SEX & CITY. This is awful.

    Season 5 and 6 of gossip girl were getting higher numbers than Carrie does as a freshman. Gossip Girl is really CW’s golden drama show.

  • rob60990

    CBS only did 2 tenths better than FOX for the night.

    The 9pm sitcom is usually the anchor of a comedy block. I’m sure there are exceptions from years ago that I can’t even remember. If CBS can’t find another hit sitcom next year, they will have no choice but to move TBBT back to Monday.

  • GG

    @Karin, well it actually is. None of FOX’s show gets higher than 2s demos. Except for like Idol which doesn’t count.

  • Gina

    Yay Bones!!!

    Next week will be the bigger test. The Voice and Revolution are back. I expect Bones to be steady. Fan base is solid. Hope the following is steady as well.

    No clue what will happen with CBS comedies. I didn’t expect them to drop much this week.

    I suspect ABC to go down next, considerably. DWTS drops, will cause a drop in castle as well


    Using the youth card on me? Friends is probably the most “current” Sept 03-May 04

    CBS seldom moves their monsters & I see TBBT right where it is for some time

    CBS has had a sitcom lineup Mondays going back to “I Love Lucy” in 1951 (even before I was born!) until present day, so I have utmost confidence they will make the right choice

    BTW the youth card didn’t work

    Sad CD adjusted down, happy 2 Broke Girls adjusted up.
