    Go Hannibal!

    What about greys

    Scandal got only a 0.3 DVR lift?

    That’s a fanstastic DVR lift for The Office.

    NBC please renew Hannibal. Looks like it’s just on the wrong night or has an incompatible lead-in. The DVR lift was great.

    What about greys

    I’m assuming Grey’s Anatomy’s L+3 rating is higher.

  • The End


    Scandals viewers are watching it live. That’s a GOOD thing.

  • KarenM

    Good news for Hannibal or good spin for NBC?

  • Michael


    How’s that a bad thing? That means, people are watching LIVE!

  • Mon

    Michael, I was just a little surprised because 0.3 is quite small and some shows that do well on live also do well on DVR – CBS comedies, Modern Family, Grey’s, CBS procedurals etc.

    Please renew Hannibal!! Such amazing show!!

    So Hannibal has found a audience, it’s only on the wrong night.

    And good for The Office.

  • Rth

    Yes please renew Hannibal!!!

  • Juan

    How is that a .3 lift for scandal, it got a 3.2 last week so it was a .7 increase which is pretty good since it had yet to break a 4 with DVR. Anyways good for the office, I don’t watch it but I love when a show ends well after this long.

    “So Hannibal has found a audience, it’s only on the wrong night.”

    If it was the wrong night because of the competition (Scandal, Elementary), the show’ll have a shot at getting better rankings this week!

    If it doesn’t, nobody will have any reason to blame NBC for pulling the plug.

  • Chris

    Hannibal is getting better every week. I love the relationship between Will and Hannibal. Hope it gets renewed.

  • Colin

    Hannibal may be renewed since L+3 takes play in what advertisers pay…
