    With the % changes btwn LSD & L7D listed here, I don’t see any reason to move shows around. Maybe Glee & New Girl. But Glee is #1 Teens in it’s highly sought after Thursday timeslot. Teens love to go to movies & are highly susceptible to ads b/c of hip/new factors. New Girl is not going to move against always Voice & bigger NCIS. Small possibility of Following & New Girl/Mindy switch places though. Since Following is one of 3 returning shows that has high % gains.
