    Weird, TVD stayed with the exact same total viewers number and still got adjusted up. How did that happen? Is this a mistake or did Nielsen originally miscalculate the ages of those viewers?

  • Luke


    In a year where series are in freefall, i’ll take VD matching last seasons low point instead of going below it!

  • halloween

    Are people still doubting BATB renewal chances? Mark Pedowitz has bigger fish to fry!

  • John A

    A little nicer to see TVD up. 1.0 is good. Hope for a 1.2 next week.

  • Wright

    Thank God TVD got adjusted up. I’m sad that Hannibal didn’t though. 1.4 still isn’t bad for NBC though.

  • CrimTV

    Glee is still getting a 70% retention!

    Yay TVD adjusted up, not a series low!!!
