    At least, American Idol isn’t a series low.

  • chris

    now that Malcolm is gone,,so are survivors ratings :(

  • rob60990

    The Voice recap show adjusted up.

    YES The Middle held its 2.0 tying overhyped New Girl. Just pull Family Tools now ABC.

  • JacobYates

    Lol at How to Live… That show is awful!

  • SJ

    Man, SVU sure has fallen. The weakest show on NBC Wednesdays? Yikes… I’m almost certain NBC will announce its 15th season as its last. It’s had a good run, but those numbers are just bad.

    Still a series low for Criminal Minds. Did not expect it to dip below a 2.5 this season. It’s still 100% certain to return however.

    I wish How to Live with Your Parents hadn’t quite gone up so much… I kind of want it to be cancelled, along with The Neighbors, so that Suburgatory can stay in the Wednesday block for one more season.

    Considering the hand it has been dealt with the lead-outs this season, The Middle is holding up very well on its 8pm island all on its own.

    Sara Bibel,

    I’m confused, The Voice recap episode had a 1.6 earlier today, now a 1.7 so it didn’t adjust down.

  • tv_viewer

    Even though I wished Survivor was adjusted up more, I’ll take it at 2.4, matching the season premiere.

  • Sergio

    did american idol went donw or went up, the preliminary was 1.6 now 1.7 but it says it goes down..

  • Sergio

    I meant the voice…

  • Glue

    I think that they should keep The Middle – Suburgatory pairing together because they are very compatible.

    Here’s why The Neighbors shouldn’t be cancelled;

    1) It’s ratings airing alongside the Middle were 1.6-2.0 which is fine.
    2) The show is good (an Invalid reason but, you know.)
    3) On it’s first season, they (ABC) left it out alone for weeks sandwiched between repeats and it still produced so-so ratings.
    4) Before you compare Malibu Country to the Neighbors, Malibu Country did NOT get 1.5’s regularly, It got 1.2-1.3’s regularly. (BTW I really like both MC and TN and I hope both get renewed.)

    My text was wrong. The Voice went up. Thaks for catching.

  • Zach

    chicago Fire should be adjusted up :/

  • Mary

    Stephen Amell? has no charisma and charm.

  • diane

    I was a faithful criminal minds viewer for the last 8 yrs, but they trashed my beliefs one too many times, so i no longer watch.Mayb other ppl are doing the same. Just a thought.

  • NBC Fan

    Modern Family still beats Idol.

    Back in February some posters said that it wouldn’t happen.

  • Ratingswatcher

    After adjustments, HTLWYP’s retention out of MF is now just 58%. Isn’t that about as well as Dont Trust the B/Happy Endings?

  • CookyMonzta

    With 2.9/9 and 11.26 million for a performance show, it will be incredibly interesting to see if the results show drops to 2.7 and under 11 million viewers. I have a feeling the finale might not even crack 16 million (the first show drew 17.9 million).

  • Samunto

    Looking at those ratings, Tuesday isn’t the only day looking for a new loud big hit! 8pm so weak. And will even be weaker in the fall with X Factor. Criminal Minds and MF have fallen too. Anyone remember when repeats of MF would do 3.?

  • Charmed

    Yay Nashville didn’t adjust down!

  • AniMatsuri

    The Voice was a clip show? No wonder Idol crushed it in the ratings.
