    Yay for Hannibal!

  • Wright

    Good for Hannibal!!!

  • Alex

    NBC will be happy to see Hannibal adjust up.

    Regardless of what other circumstances may or may not have contributed to that rise NBC need every pit of good news they can muster so some week two growth for Hannibal can’t be a bad thing. Its going to be interesting to see how it holds up for the rest of the run. I’ve been really impressed with it so far though so I’m hoping for good things.

    Elsewhere not a whole lot to say really.

    I know we don’t like to talk about total viewers here, but how about TBBT getting 11.44 million viewers for a repeat. MF got 10.38 million for a new episode on Wednesday night. TBBT still gets the most viewers for sitcoms this week with a repeat.

  • Billy

    I know Hannibal did well, but I need to see what it does when both Elementary and Scandal are new. This was not an even playing field this week to rush to judgement on Hannibal.

  • Chipiro

    Hannibal has a ceiling just like Grimm very limited appeal that’s not going anywhere but late week hell.

    Next week the beasts are back Elementary and Scandal to take a bite out of that show.

  • martha

    Yay! More than 10 million for a POI rerun. :D

  • forg

    wow impressive for Hannibal.

    What will air at 9:30 next week? Go On over alreadt

    And wow at TBBT repeat ratings

  • Chipiro

    @ Billy

    Yeah BBT is a straight up repeat monster putting up 11.4 million viewers for a repeat. BBT has a purpose for syndication what purpose does Community have when it can’t even draw 3 million for an original episode, a cable network will pull it quick as soon as it debuts for reruns.

  • rob60990

    Is it so hard for some of you to look at the schedule? Scandal is a rerun again next week and CBS is airing a POI rerun while airing 2 hours of comedy reruns.

  • Barbie

    Elementary reruns well!

    But GOODNESS, The Big Bang Theory!!!! Better than original NCIS this week!

  • forg

    Greys repeated well for an ABC drama. ABC drama repeats are usually under 1.0

  • The End

    @Hannibal has a ceiling just like Grimm very limited appeal that’s not going anywhere but late week hell.

    You say it like it’s a bad thing. You have Grimm currently on its second season pulling renewal numbers with the third pretty much in the bag. If you want to call out the shows for their limited appeal, fine, but either way the fans are winning.

  • Tony

    GLEE didn`t adjusted down.. Yeahh!!

  • MichaelChickless

    Hannibal! Yowza!

  • brutony

    Yeah, GREAT for Hannibal and its Viewer! This show was a long, meandering BORE! Saw the pilot last week, thats enough, thank you!

  • Jenny

    Glee at 75% retention this week very respectable. Horrible episode though

    Hannibal is looking like a lock for renewal.Next week it has the same limited competition, and a stronger lead-in with Parks and Recreation.Wonder why they aren’t airing this show after The Voice. If it can get a 1.7 after a 1.1, then it would likely hit 2’s after The Voice.

  • MichaelChickless

    @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.”

    America loves serial killers!

    I watched about the last 10 minutes of Go On, waiting for Hannibal to come on. Is that show supposed to be a comedy?

  • communitufan111

    I wish community would pull better numbers….. it still will probably get another season… what else is NBC gonna put up against the big bang theory? And Go On is gone

  • k:Alex

    8:00 – Community new
    8:30 – The Office (rerun)
    9:00 – P&R new
    9:30 – P&R new
    10:00 – Hannibal :)

    next week it has a lead in :)
