    Good for the CW i guess has arrow gotten any better i gave up after ep 9

  • Michael


    Absolutely NOT! Well, in my opinion. The flashback sequences are tedious and boring.

  • Mark Drei

    Fox: 3.3 rating – 12.46 viewers. CBS: 1.9 – 8 million viewers. NBC: 1.4 – 4.23 viewers. ABC: – 1.3 – 4.05 viewers. CW: 1 rating – 2.74 viewers. Fox has all new programming. Fox wins night. CBS is 1/3 and gets second. NBC is 2/3 and gets third. ABC is 1/5 and gets fourth. CW has all new progamming, gets last.

    I guess anyone could figure that out themselves.

    Why did NBC not air a new Chicago Fire? Shouldn’t SVU have less episodes since it started two weeks earlier with a two part episode?

    YAS @ SVU being the 3rd highest rated show of the night!

    IMO, Arrow was starting to feel a bit flat at the end of its fall run but it got better since it came back. It is more focused and the characters are more grounded. I would give it a go again.

  • Fred

    NBC must be very pleased with L&O SUV. A 1.9 for a show this old is very impressive. Much newer dramas would be thrilled to achieve a rating like that.
    FOX must be relieved that IDOL is over 3.0. Many believed it would sink to the 2s by now.

  • Evan

    Survivor is doing so great now! There is no way that CBS is gonna move it, it is so consistent and is finally getting great ratings again. Hopefully it’ll keep going up as the season comes to an end. I knew this season was gonna start out slow because of the theme but these past few episodes have been so good i’m glad people are coming back to watch.

  • Mon

    SVU did well. I’m curious how well it will perform next week with The Voice lead-in at 8pm. I hope it gets a season high despite full broadcast competition.

  • Charmed

    Not bad for a 14 year old show.

  • Holly


    YAS @ SVU being the 3rd highest rated show of the night!

    3rd out of 5 original shows on the 4 major nets…

  • Mi

    @Michael speak for yourself, Arrow is my favorite new show this year and each episode since 1.14 has only gotten better.

  • Mon

    Arrow skews slightly older!!!

    But Arrow regular beats Supernatural in 18-49 and 18-34. Though there might be a couple of times where they tied or SPN beat Arrow by a tenth.
