    Camp adjusted down what a surprise. It couldnt beat a CSI Repeat.

  • John A

    Arrow did well. Its been getting some 0.2 the past few weeks. Good to see it up.

  • CBSviewer

    Camp is DOA. Good for Supernatural and CSI :)

    So where are all those people who stated Camp losing more than half its lead-in is doing oh so well?

    ABC was smart airing LMS now instead of Suburgatory reruns. Not only is LMS more compatible with The Middle despite being multi-cam, it will be returning in 6 weeks while Suburgatory won’t return until it replaces a cancelled new comedy. It just makes more sense to repeat LMS.

    Given that CBS & TWC are at odds those are pretty amazing numbers for Big Brother ,,

  • Ultima

    Per Drudge Report, Megyn Kelly will be getting the 9pm timeslot on FNC.

    With the exception of dropping Colmes from Hannity & Colmes, this is the first change to their primetime lineup since 2002. It will be interesting to see how the musical chairs plays out.

    My guess…
    1 – Carlson
    2 – Shep (2h)
    4 – Cavuto
    5 – The Five
    6 – Special Report
    7 – Greta
    8 – O’Reilly
    9 – Kelly
    10 – Hannity
    11 – O’Reilly (R)

    ABC should air LMS after the middle instead of putting the show in fridays.It also beats modern family in viewers.

  • Ultima

    The blackout is only affecting ~3 million households; it has a very insignificant effect on CBS’ national ratings.

  • Networkman

    Last Man Standing repeated well after The Middle. This is really great to see, exposing it to viewers before it premieres in the Fall.

    @Ultima…It doesn’t matter what Fox Comedy News puts on. They will still attract an audience mostly over 70.

  • Igwell

    Ultima, don’t be silly. Hannity’s audience can’t stay awake all the way to 11pm. Shep is staying in early prime. If any show gets the boot, it’s Special Report.

    Why do you Fox News haters keep repeating that false claim? Fox News consistently decimates CNN and MSNBC in the key demo. And the key demo doesn’t include 18-25 year olds who are far from young…

  • Joe

    I cant believe they are repating Last Man Standing. So what the ratings are decent. It is just awful!

  • SJ

    Suburgatory was growing every week and they replace it?! Stupid ABC!

  • Spen B

    @Stan T

    Look at the most recent cable news ratings post. Only about 15% of Fox News viewers were between the ages of 25 and 54, and only around 30% were within the 35-64 demo. So, unless you’re going to tell me that Fox News is extremely popular (relatively) with 18-24 year olds and 65-69 year olds, “an audience of mostly over 70″ is not an exaggeration at all. It’s accurate.

    While Fox News may often get higher ratings in the demo than its competitors, its massive senior audience makes CBS look young-skewing.

    That woman in the picture almost looks nude. Was that Big Brother?

    Why are we talking about Faux News on the prime time ratings page anyways?

  • rempod

    Ultima 2 consecutive hours of Shep will not work. Camp did not air here because of a never ending baseball game. Who watches MSNBC or CNN unless your stuck in a hospital lobby? Nobody!
