    Woo! Gooo Greys & Scandal. :)

  • Joe Daniels

    American Idol needs the judges to be Chris Daughtry, Adam Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson. The viewers will increase a whole lot then.

  • Reven8ger

    Wow at Grey’s going from 8,3millions to 9millions!

  • Fábio

    all comedies in NBC had 0.7, repeat or not. lol

  • Nick

    BAB didn’t adjust down. That’s good news.

  • gary

    B&tB renewed for sure
    Go Scandal!!!

  • forg

    Impressive for Grey’s Anatomy. It recovered from that series low 2.6 it got 2 weeks ago. I wish The Middle and MF’s series low ratings last Wed was just a result of long hiatus and they’ll bounce back next week just like Grey’s did

  • Dan W

    Ugh so bummed that Beauty and the Beast stayed at a 0.6! I would much rather it go off the air than The Carrie Diaries! Gave up on BATB a few weeks ago as it is way too repetitive and I feel like I’m watching the same episode every single week!

  • JacobYates

    BATB didn’t adjust down. It may have a chance after all.

  • Patrick

    Solid ratings for TVD and BATB. what a relief!

  • carl

    American Idol = Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Lambert, Jordin Sparks, Philip Philips & more

    The Voice = ¿?

    X-Factor USA = ¿?

  • Michael

    Joe Daniels,

    That actually would be a fantastic idea! Adding past American Idol successful winners, as the panel would be fresh, intriguing, and it would show how successful American Idol is creating superstars.

  • Carla

    Grey’s¡¡¡¡ so happy, love the show.

  • JacobYates

    Those were season lows for Modern Family and the Middle, not series lows.

  • Claudia

    @Dan W think we are watching 2 different shows BATB is getting stupidly better specially after last night episode nothing repetitive at all

  • electric_dog

    Adam Lambert? LOL

  • forg

    Good thing Raising Hope is already renewed anyway, the scheduling for this show had been awful no thanks to Ben and Kate flopping

  • Tom

    The 0.6/150MM rating is pretty much where I thought the Beast would inevitably end up. The program has been over 170 MM viewers since it returned from hiatus but has been unable to hold that number. I can only assume that the jump in viewership was related to new viewers who quickly stopped watching. So, I believe it’s safe to assume that the Beast lacks the potential to permanently increase its audience beyond the present number.

  • Mr Mikey

    Are there going to be any Thursday cable ratings today?

  • forg


    I stand corrected
