    Interesting to see the Parks and Recreation repeat grow from The Office.

  • Billy

    TBBT goes up .2 and wins the night against all new shows on the other networks. That show is simply amazing.

  • Mon

    The Big Bang Theory REPEAT adjusted up 0.2?! Wow.

  • Bumfuzzled

    Why the hell do networks run shows from 8 to 8:32?

    This stupid run over caused me to miss the ending of Mike and Molly since my dvr taped from 8:30 to 9 and M & M ran until 9:02….

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    Ironically during the delayed Mike & Molly (due to the tornado), the tornado sirens went off in my town. For some reason I wasn’t that offended.

  • John A

    Knew CW would go down. Still solid for it. Great for TBBT.

  • John A

    Not horrible for ABC but still CBS Drama repeats doing the same so not that great.

  • JeffT

    Bumfuzzled, the networks do it specifically to annoy people. They know full well what they’re doing. Just more reasons to avoid their product.

  • MichaelChickless

    Looks like there’s no Saving Her. It’s actually a cute show.


  • Michael

    Poor Anne Heche. Will she ever find success? She’s a solid actress.

  • david

    TVD did the same as Arrow and SPN in repeats this week. ABC had a 1.2 the entire night.

    If you have manual record, you could try that out on your DVR since you want to watch every minute of the show. Let’s say that Mike & Molly is on at 9-9:31pm. You could record it starting at 8:59pm up until 9:35pm so you’ll be able to watch the whole thing. Hope it helps. :)

    Unrelated, but ABC is gutting the cast of Suburgatory and they let one more regular from Revenge go… Again I must ask, who the hell is running that network? They’re running their best shows in the ground! But hey, as long as Scandal’s budget isn’t trimmed… :roll:

  • SJ

    *into the ground. We really need an edit button

    “Why the hell do networks run shows from 8 to 8:32?”

    Extra advertising during a high rated show.

    FYI, There’ a CBS First Impressions list on Hollywood Reporter website in which critics give their opinions on CBS new fall pilots. They hated We Are Men, The Millers, & Intelligence. Most liked Mom. Very mixed reviews for Hostages & Crazy Ones.

  • Joseph A

    Also , about ABC , they are losing some of their supporting cast at, Once Upon A Time ,
    Blue Fairy, Red Riding Hood , both confirmed gone ,

  • JacobYates

    Knew that the Elementary viewership numbers were wrong. Wow at TBBT repeat!

  • Alex

    Go Hannibal!!!!

  • SJ

    @Joseph A

    Keegan Connor Tracy who plays the blue fairy has said she’ll be back. Meghan Ory (Red) will likely guest star in at least one episode but won’t be featured as prominently as she is now a regular on another show.

    Oh series low for Mike and Molly but it would have gotten lower if it aired on Monday so I guess this is OK

    @SJ Re: Suburgatory – I’m OK with them letting Alan Tudyk and Rex Lee go. That show had too many supporting characters and for me S2 suffered because we barely saw Tessa and George stories until the last few eps which were brilliant. Noah’s story with her nanny was so annoying and seriously I don’t get why they made Lee a regular where his character added nothing to the show. Parker Young should have been a regular but surprisingly he never was.
