  • CrimTV


    This will be the final season of Revenge.

    4th season of Revenge is guaranteed (syndication)!

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Go The Mentalist! Outrated TGW, again.

  • s0303

    wow that’s really low for amazing race…i expected it from tgw and tm, but not tar…

  • omabin

    Damn it Revenge! Still better than I expected though, so I am still happy but damn it for the adjustment.

  • Wagner

    I hope CBS cancel The Good Wife this year. I love the show, but I think 5 years are enough, the show never were so strong anyway and the awards stop being so frenquently.

  • PhilipM

    @Nope: Red John’s going to be revealed this season. That’s about as much of a proper ending as any fan could hope for.

  • Matthew

    Whoever thinks revenge will be cancelled is sadly mistaken

  • Setheriel

    Anyone who thinks Revenge will be cancelled this season must have never heard the word “syndication” before. Silly Revenge haters.

  • Ernest

    OUAT is lame. Those ratings are terrible for and over hyped show

  • Bee

    quick question: i know syndication is like.. THE THING. but how long can revenge’s ratings go before it’s not worth it? meaning, it something like 1.5 becomes the new norm for revenge, is it still a done deal for renewal cus of syndication?

  • Bee

    also, can anyone who’s been watching ABC on TV say how much they’ve promoted scandal’s return?

  • Networkman

    CBS has to now really be concerned about Hostages. Not only did it tie The Good Wife’s 1.5 demo but also its viewership is low for a Monday Night. It is down by over 3 million viewers from the Sunday dramas.

    I feel Revenge’s premiere was excellent. So it really should stay consistent or if word gets around that this show is back on track, it may increase.

  • harry

    Revenge did great it hit 1.4 and 1.5 last year i was afraid it wouldnt recover… but it did . if the storylines get better this year it can increase.

    Scandal will hit series highs this thursday. The big secret is out and that makes the episode the most important until now so i guess a 3.8 -4.0 for it


    That’s weird revenge went down a tenth in demo but up in viewers. Revenge will see a 4th season.

  • HV

    I haven’t seen any promotion at all. All I’ve watched on ABC though is Lucky 7, The Middle, Modern Family, and Last Man Standing.
