    Was there something special on 60 minutes last night? I know it does well but these numbers seem exceptional?

  • Wright

    Great for OUAT!!!!!

  • Stefan

    @ SB

    Those numbers are awful given the thought that it had a 9.9 18-49 and 28 million lead-in.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    CBS, please swap Hostages time slot with The Mentalist.

  • Michael

    SB, it was football-boosted.

  • psychic

    Could The Mentalist be saved if it was moved?

  • CBSviewer

    The Simpsons is Sunday’s King :) It was a really good episode of The Mentalist. Can’t wait to see who is Red John in six weeks !

  • psychic

    Some people keep whining about not knowing who Red John is yet and quitting the show for that very reason. Pretty ironic that we’re about to find out his identity and they’re missing it.
    I think six seasons is a perfectly reasonable amount of time for a serial killer’s identity to be masked.

  • POIFanatic

    @Tom: I’m not kidding, but one particular ‘CW show’ definitely used to be Emmy-worthy during its first 5 seasons – Supernatural.

  • JR35

    Elia, I agree that the first season was best for OUAT- but, that was built around the curse, and Emma’s journey to believing. So, it’s understandable that it would not be the “same show,’ so to speak.

    I liked that this week’s episode had Enchanted Forest scenes, which were lacking (I believe) in the season premiere.

    Glad it adjusted up. :)

  • Stu

    OUAT is 2nd worse show on network tv, the 1st one UTD. Both shows are awful, badly acted, and written for a 8 year old.
    Maybe if I was 8 years old I might like the show.
    Much better show’s unfortunately the dumbing down of America still continues.
    Jennifer Morrison looks more like 40 than 28 LOL. Almost as bad as Tracy Spiradkos at least 30 playing a teenager.
    The Best new show is Orange is The New Black and that is on netflix original series.
    Now Sleepy Hollow have to admit not a bad show.


    I think the mentalist would go up if it moved maybe to 10 pm on Monday’s or move it to Friday nights at 8 pm. The mentalist did well for being out of primetime. Revenge held on even though it slipped. Betrayel is a goner big time. It’s a terrible show.

  • DenverDean

    So FOX dumps AD to TBS for BB, which dropped 35%+ of TS demo. Definitely the weak link in the line-up. Starting to hurt FG as well.

  • diana

    I was really hoping revenge would adjust up

  • cas

    Well she is 34, just as close to 40 as she is 28. Personally, I like the show and I wouldn’t put it in the same category as some of the shows that dumb down America. It may not be as good as others out there but everyone has different tastes. I have yet to catch Orange is the New Black as I am undecided if I want to watch some of the storylines in it but I have heard it is good.

  • diana

    At least revenge is up in viewers but if ouat goes up maybe it will save revenge due to it’s bigger lead in

  • Flame

    Now 2.4 looks much better already than the 2.1 last week for Race. Seems like about the same than what the previous season was doing.

  • Dylan

    ABC should move Revenge to 10 pm next year i think

  • Networkman

    I really do think The Mentalist should be moved to Monday night @10pm. CBS needs to quickly fix that hour. Hostages can move to Sunday after the Good Wife to burn off its episodes and then Intelligence can air on Sunday @midseason. It won’t go up against NFL football.

    Also Bob’s Burgers dip pretty low after the terrific ratings from The Simpsons. I’m not sure of how its helps the flow of the entire evening. Cleveland Show could probably pull the same or better numbers.
