    OUAT isn’t the “loser” of its hour; the FOX average for the hour was 1.9. :) And OUAT, even with the decline, still was top 20 in the 18-49 demo.

  • marcos

    Revenge should’ve been higher. that episode was amazing

  • Raul

    OUAT will be renewed! Really hope its climbs to the 8 or 9 million stage for the season finale!!

  • Jiji Moran

    Why has Donald Trump been claiming that his show is the highest rated show on television? “Family Guy” beat it by a whole point demo.

    Inside “The Mentalist” tupperware box was… the rapist’s tongue.

  • MichaelChickless

    Go The Mentalist! (To Monday nights at 10:00!)

  • Justin


    1. Usually All star seasons of shows don’t do very well…look at Survivor, Dancing With the Stars, Amazing Race

    2. Its doing better than Community, Parks and Recreation, Go On, The New Normal, Whitney, gets the same ratings as Law and Order SVU and does about the same or as good as some other shows.

    3. Some shows don’t hold up well if it has no lead in. This one does

    4. Yes there Monday night lineup is huge, but compared to other networks, they have a weak marketing platform

    5. If it had new celebrities, it would be doing better

    6. Its doing better than the recent Regular Apprentice

    All in all I do not think it will be cancelled this season

  • Shaun

    Nice to see The Mentalist rise. Good job Rigsby didn’t open that tupperware box after all. Its a shame The Good Wife didn’t get a better rating than a 1.6 although I will be looking foward to season 5 :)

  • Jason

    Lets hope next week Revenge & OUaT goes even way further down. For both the shows the 2nd season is moving like a snail

  • frodo


    or hopefully by next week you can learn how to write.

  • aciel

    revenge and OUAt have too many to be going down further and plus with with their finales approaching they will be going up whether u like it or not

  • Chloe

    because there are always haters everywhere on this page???
    do not have to worry about OUAT still doing great :)

  • Big ouch for “Once Upon A Time”…

  • FarscapeFan

    One of the best ever episodes of The Mentalist. :) Deserved better ratings.

  • TerryJacksonNYC

    I’m always amused when people suggest that an episode deserved better ratings because it was “good.” There are so many reasons why ratings are what they are, but not a single one of them has anything to do with whether or not the episode is good, since viewers won’t know that until after they’re seen it. If a show’s ratings are lower than expected, the only link to quality will be the lack thereof in the episodes preceding it.

    Cause and effect. It’s a pretty simple idea.

  • thesnowleopard

    Well, it’s all Fan Excuse Bingo, anyway, so I don’t suppose logic is going to come into it.

    I have seen examples where the viewers turned off an episode pretty quickly because it was bad. But you’re right that viewers tuning into an episode that turns out to be good isn’t going to happen.

  • pll fan

    no adjustment for ouat. ouch!

  • The End


    The Amazing Race 18(Returning Racers season) outrated this season too :)

  • Cass


    Really wish Red Widow was doing better

    Sorry, but you should consider viewing it as a one-shot miniseries to avoid heartbreak when it isn’t renewed. This is why I tend not to watch first seasons of shows until they’ve been renewed. Been burned one time too many.

  • Martine

    Once Upon a Time not so good!!!

  • Jayzel

    0.7? For Red Widow? ABC is the new MSNBDNC or CW. I forget
