    How I Met Your Mother was the #3 most watched scripted show last week, that’s legen….wait for it….

    Both NCIS shows are still beasts with total viewers, I wonder if they made the right decision to not make the 3rd NCIS.

    Nice to see The Office in the top 25 for the last time.

    …..DARY!

    BB Music Awards almost same demo as AI Finale. WOW. I remember when BBMA were lowest rated music awards show.

  • KK

    Wow, no freshman series in the 18-49 last week. And Elementary is the only one in total viewers. Yes sir, this has been an awful season for the rookie class. Better luck this fall.

  • Judy912

    Good to see ‘CASTLE’ was ABC’s third most watched program as well as most watched scripted series with the overall audiences and ABC’s 5th most watched program with the prime age demo group.

    Hello,
    Can somebody please tell me if there’s a complete list of shows (from 1 to 100 or whatever) of the ratings tallies for the 2012-2013 TV season available? Thanks.

    @SIl
    The list of top shows for the season should be coming by the end of the month, probably within a week. Though we all know NCIS topped the list at #1.

  • Bradleigh H Horton

    You an thank KELLIE PCKLER and DEREK HOUGH for RAISNG THE BAR on DWTS. Don’t be surprised if Derek Hough gets his OWN show in the future because he has won more times than any other dancer on DWTS.

  • Sil

    Thanks, “American”.
    Yes, it’s a given NCIS will be #1 (at least in total viewers) but I was more interested in seeing the tallies for the shows that were in the middle of the pack. I’ll keep my eyes open for the list to show up….
