    “Seems like Scandal will have a very easy year in ratings versus hannibal and elementary…”

    Parenthood is airing Thursday at 10 this fall.

  • Nope

    Hannibal is too good for american audiences.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    I’m sure if one of the players had had a public meltdown and been replaced by Ashton Kutcher that the NBA Finals could have been the Two and Half Men Premiere

  • NeNe Leakes


    That comparison was ridiculous.

    It’s like comparing the ratings for the Season One premiere of New Normal to the ratings for the Season One Finale of New Normal.

    They just don’t add up.


  • JC

    I realize it is a ratings machine but it still floors me that 8 million people watch a Big Bang Theory RERUN. That is more than most NBC first run shows get.

  • Stacy

    I’m a Fannibal. I’ll take what little we can get!

  • Daniel

    Hannibal feels like a good cable show that accidently got aired by NBC. Really liked the first season

  • K

    Immediate ratings are so stupid! I’m watching my beloved Hannibal now vs. when NBC schedules it. When will the ratings system catch up to reality?! Or at least the juicy reporting of it.

  • K

    Hells Kitchen did well as usual

    It will probably be a while before NBA gets these types of ratings again. The Heat have no competition for the foreseeable future.

    @EatMorePez & NeNe Leakes

    Thank you for that totally arbitrary comparison.

    That comparison was ridiculous.

    It was a joke. Apparently the purpose of the winking emoticon has changed.

  • Hi

    I wish know the DVR for Hannibal…

  • Doug

    @Melissa: Haha! The 10th season premiere of Two and a Half Men couldn’t even match the 1st season finale of Desperate Housewives (13.2)!!

    So long as we’re making pointless comparisons…

  • Dan S

    I just got done watching the Hannibal season finale. What a conundrum Will Graham is in now. The only slot I could see it getting on NBC would be on Wed after SVU assuming Ironside tanks.

  • marixa

    How could NBC Cancel Deception yet leave Hannibal with such horrible ratings those are CW numbers NBC

  • guest

    The Rating system should be recognized as the obsolete, antiquated system that it is and be discarded

    Bottom line is that I watch Hannibal loyally every week, but not at 10pm on Thursdays, I watch it Friday after noon, (or when its convenient for me), on NBC’s website.

  • Lisa

    @Melissa, I love how you actually explained that your obvious joke was indeed a joke and then STILL got another oh-so-serious reaction to it. :D Too funny!

    Terrible for Hannibal. The show must be really cheap for NBC!

  • HalCapone

    In the Season 2 opener of Hannibal, cannibal Lechter eats Paula Deen after basting her in several pounds of butter.

  • Alan

    Go Hannibal! I wish it would had pulled over one million viewers, but a 0.8 is enough.
