    Great numbers for Big Brother that makes them equal with last year, also happy about the Survivor numbers given that an increasing large part of the viewing audience is now watching that show via a delay

    Happy for SPN, can’t wait for the premiere.

  • Pepper

    Can the X Factor be cancelled after this season or is Fox under contract for a certain number of cycles?

  • loveTV

    Nashville 2.9 and 9 mill. ??? :O lol

  • jenn

    Survivor was actually good last night, hated last season tbh
    why do they always use Redemption Island when its for returning players only, seems sorta rigged for the loved ones or favorites to do well, like the last time it was used. I’d rather have exile Island back than that, I think idols on Exile Island were the best, Idols these days are easy to find.

    Big Brother renewed for next summer and did very well this summer for CBS. CBS is king of reality TV—-Survivor, Big Brother and Amazing Race are all still going strong!

  • Oliver

    Ironside doesn’t premiere next week? Aww, that means I’ll have to wait two weeks to not watch it.

  • Ross

    I am probably in the minority but I loved MSQ. The only part I didn’t like was Seacrest. Not 100% sure if this show was made by Seacrest’s production company? I’d love for this show to come back.

    I did predict a 2.6 for the premiere of Survivor: Blood vs Water and a 2.2 for X Factor. I underestimated the ratings for Big Brother 15, America’s Got Talent, and Million Second Quiz.

    I do have to commend this site on one thing: polls. Even though a lot of people didn’t answer the poll question correctly, this site provided links to the poll results for at least a few days.

    There is a certain website for Big Brother fans that polled predictions on the winner of Big Brother (this website’s name starts with a J). On the day before the finale, 58% predicted Ginamarie would win. On a separate question, an even higher percentage said Ginamarie should win. When Andy won the 3rd part of the final HOH competition but before Spencer was evicted, I checked on this website to see if the poll was still there. For some reason that poll was taken down. Maybe that website was too embarrassed to have their predictions turn out so wrong.

  • Mark Milton

    I knew Andy would win from day one. My theory was no one would target him for fear of being called a bigot

  • Aeiouy

    They should cancel Arrow

  • Phil

    AGT oh yea!

  • Andrew

    The new Survivor is off to a great start, and I think this will be one of the most interesting seasons to watch. Also I think Survivor, The Middle, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, and even Revolution will beat X Factor next week. I think Back in the Game will be a flop and will premiere to low 2s but will sink after that. I definitely think Revolution will premiere above a 2 (possibly a 2.5) as people have had a chance to catch up with it or get into it over the Summer, and Revolution’s core audience will be watching as well.

    Good (in comparison to other CW repeat ratings) numbers for SPN. I’m still not convinced that a move away from Arrow and Wednesdays is wise, but time will tell.

    SPN has been the CWs best rerun performer over the summer. Not sure what the CW will do when they no longer have this reliable ratings-deliverer to prop up their new shows.
