    Awesome for Hannibal!

    And by “awesome” I mean “awesome by current NBC standards” :)

  • iMember

    Yaaaay Hannibal!!

    Honestly loving the show. This makes it the second show this season to go up from its premiere numbers next to The Following.

  • SP

    Go Hannibal

  • T

    So happy for Hannibal!

  • rob60990

    Hannibal DID rise from its premiere. The show deserves a better timeslot.

  • John A

    BBT repeat adjusted up too. Weird that TVD doesnt repeat as well as Spn and Arrow.

  • The End

    Hannibal shouldn’t be moved, and won’t be moved. Season 2 will likely see a new day, Friday.

  • halloween

    TVD drops about 1.0 in demo in reruns…while batb only falls .2 in reruns

  • JackMcRue

    The good word of mouth has already started.
    Great, amazing show. Best Network show by miles.
    Let there be many awesome seasons!

  • RandyL

    Hannibal adjusted up. .1 higher than the premiere. Certain renewal, that’s for sure. Go On is an embarressment and needs to be cancelled.

  • Bee

    so hannibal did rise! why isn’t this show on after the voice on tuesdays? i mean, a 1.1 lead-in? oh well, at least its taking advantage of the repeat competition.

    NBC, renew NOW before its too late lol jk

  • Billy

    TBBT with a 3.0 for a repeat is just insane. That number is better than almost every sitcom on TV in originals other than Modern Family.

  • rob60990

    I know it doesn’t mean anything but weird that B&TB rerun had more viewers than TVD.

  • The End


    Lower expectations for this show. The performance so far should prove it has some legs at least.

  • Bee

    also, this season of idol is FINALLY interesting. all the men are gone. thank goodness. they were dead weight this season and now we have 5 talented girls. can’t wait. i hope the ratings rise.

  • Roco

    NBC use to be the number 1 network, and Hannibal ratings are horrible, that show would not survive in CBS, ABC or FOX

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Hannibal adjusting up means it really beat the odds by growing out of its premiere. I’m pleased as the show is pretty compelling.

    Nonetheless it’s too soon to call it a “hit” even by NBC standards. We need to see if it stabilizes at where it is or grows some more or begins to drift downward over the next four episodes. I wouldn’t be surprised to see any of those outcomes at this point.

    halloween: “TVD drops about 1.0 in demo in reruns…while batb only falls .2 in reruns”

    Because BATB doesn’t have that far to drop…and half its fans are probably too stupid to know it’s a repeat. :-)

    Death to BATB!

  • Penny

    YAS! Hannibal is amazing.

  • JacobYates

    That’s great for Hannibal and its fans.

  • DryedMangoez

    Good for Hannibal! Hope those new eyes stick around and maybe tell some friends.
