    TGW deserves more :/

    No adjustments for revenge :-(

    Without overruns, OUAT’s upwards adjustments are limited. But, let’s HOPE that is the lowest it goes. While the first season probably was stronger, this season still has been enjoyable. The scheduling certainly hasn’t helped matters.

    TGW did miserable ratings for a season finale.

  • Rebecca

    Cool, AFV beat 60 Minutes in the demo. It had a military heroes theme, and yet the winning video in the end was of two guys screaming at a spider, lol.

    All Star Celebrity Apprentice is doing very well for NBC this season considering all these points…

    1. All of other NBC shows are doing worse
    2. the show builds on its lead in every week and grows throughout its two hours
    3. the lead in is a repeat
    4. This is an all star season, if it has new celebrities and a better lead in it would be doing much better.
    5. Not a huge platform to promote the show.

    All these considering, its doing pretty well in its 13th season

    At least Revenge is second in its slot. Hopefully with The Good Wife out of the way it will pick up some viewers, I know I watch both shows along with Game of Thrones. That 21 PM slot is crazy in terms of the amount of good shows on.

    Well done Amazing Race!

    To all the haters of reality TV shows, they are not going anywhere. If they are getting better ratings than scripted shows with cheaper budgets, why do broadcast networks need to dump them?

    :) Good Point

  • David


    The Amazing Race 2 hour season finale is this coming Sunday, and Survivor season finale after that. Both will run in the 9 hr slot. I think Revenge will have a harder time.

  • iMember

    Revenge climbed in viewers!! That’s good. :)

  • Wright

    WTH…no upward adjustment for OUAT?

  • DW

    TAR is more of a game show than reality. i dont watch it but from what i see of it its really good.

  • frodo


    Nah, I think The Amazing Race and Survivor target a much different type of viewer. Where as I know so many people who were watching both A Good Wife and Revenge.

  • Hahaha

    lol OUAT is the loser of its hour. What a shame.

  • kev873

    Really wish Red Widow was doing better :(

  • Illinois

    The Simpsons beat OUAT :)

  • WN

    I hope The Mentalist rises in its finale next week. P.S. Thanks for the photo.

  • psychic

    The Mentalist doesn’t deserve its ratings. Great episode, and what was inside the Tupperware surprisingly didn’t leave me disappointed.

    @Justin –

    1. Not all other NBC shows are doing worse. And you need to include Celebrity Apprentice in that, because it’s down from last season.
    2 & 3. If the lead-in is a repeat, I would HOPE it would be doing better.
    4. Doesn’t “all star” usually mean “people you want to see again?” What’s the reasoning that it’s doing WORSE by having recognizable faces?
    5. What platform would you like it to have? NBC’s Monday night lineup is huge. And NBC shouldn’t have to spend a ton of money promoting a show in its 13th year.
