Editor's Note: Television viewing on platforms such as DVR, Video-on-Demand and Online streaming continues to grow at a fast pace.  Last season during premiere week, Live+7 CBS audiences grew 20% over Live+SD in total viewers, up from 17% in 2012.  In A18-49, Live+7 levels grew 29% from Live+SD, up from 23% one year ago.  Additionally, many CBS shows experienced as much as a 50% increase in Total Viewers once full 30 day Multi-Platform audiences were accounted for.  In an effort to quantify how much non-linear viewing adds to Live+SD audiences, CBS Research will provide estimates for series which will include DVR playback as well as Multi-Platform viewership.

    Margo Martindale saves the day again. Her character, Carol, with modesty not her strong suit, continues to dominate the comedy on the Millers. Way to go, Margo


    And the bragging rights ensue!

    ASIDE Margo’s comedic talents are a real joy. Had no doubt re: her drama skills, so hopefully The Millers will last for many seasons to come.

    The best part was when Nate was complaining about how his ex-wife was able to sabotage his lead-in. I’m just glad Amy Poehler couldn’t do that in real life.

    I am loving. TBBT- MILLERS-CRAZY ONES.

    3 great comedies.

    Great for The Crazy Ones anyway, Glee may had stopped it a little but I guess next week, it will get its 2.8-2.9 on 18/49 But it’s still great that the show is number one in viewers & adults (25-54)

    “The Big Bang Theory,” “The Crazy Ones,” and “Elementary” were all great last night. I feel that’s all I need to say about them because a lot of my comments begin to feel repetitive and almost even redundant. So that’s all I’m going to say regarding those shows.

    “The Millers” was actually better than I was expecting. Wasn’t impressed with the premiere, and I only stuck around for the second episode because it comes on in-between TBBT and TCO.
    It was a big improvement, and I hope it continues improving. Last night’s episode showed that the show does have more potential than one might have originally thought (after watching the premiere).

    As much as I told myself I wasn’t going to watch “Two and a Half Men” last night, I ended up watching it. It was better than the last two episodes, but that is not a compliment at all. I almost feel insulted when watching it. It used to be one of my favorite comedy shows, now it’s one of the worst. No, I’m not one of those Charlie Sheen fanatics that thinks the show sucks now because he’s gone. The show just sucks now. That’s it.
    I’ll probably end up watching it again because it comes on in-between TCO and “Elementary.” It feels pointless to change the channel just to change it back.
