    Supernatural top of the CW this week it seems.

  • CrimTV

    Glee did amazing!

    NO TVD! You better not fall further :(

  • JaneDoe24

    Scandal is doing just fine. Next episode looks good, so the ratings may go back up a bit.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    What happened to NBC last night?It’s almost close to CW ratings.They need to change their thursday line-up soon.I don’t understand Parenthood dropping every week,when the show was on tuesdays it was always winning the timeslot.

  • joy

    CrimTv,You do know that it was not shown in NYC tonight!!

  • erwanfromfrance

    That means The X-Factor STILL HAS NOT been under 2.0 YET !
    Go X-Facto, GO !
    That’s well for Glee, the episode were AWESOME !I’ll miss you forever Finn !
    Quite disapointed for Grey’s Anatomy, but I’m not worried, it will go up next week.
    And I’m devastated with NBC’s ratings tonight, I have no words I guess.
    Glad CBS is going down, down, down…..

    Why is there a P next to 2.5 men?

  • Matt

    Expecting Greys to be very steady this season in the 2.7-3.3 area. Scandal will probably rise to about a 3.3 next week due to the big bomber 2-part storyline.

  • CrimTV


    Yes I do, but it’s still at a series low.

  • SJ


    The Vampire Diaries is in no danger whatsoever.

    NBC’s lineup cratered. I didn’t expect MJF to drop quite that much.

    CBS still doing solid, but I can’t escape the feeling that none of the new shows seems to be sticking – not just on CBS, mind you. I don’t think a single new show has had an up week after the mandatory week 2 drop. That’s kind of depressing.

  • luisa

    It’s not TVDs fault. People from NY etc couldn’t watch it live bc a football game aired…

  • Shepherd

    I almost forgot for a second they don’t mention repeat adjustments in the headline; was thinking TO may have only been .1-.2 below TVD. 0.5 for TO repeat is still good.

  • Melissa

    Wow is this the first time Glee beat Grey’s Anatomy head to head?

  • Chris J

    No upward adjustments for NBC?

    They need to rethink Thursdays.

  • Wright

    Happy to see Elementary didn’t adjust down. TVD still doing good even with the adjustment. TO still repeated well. It did better in repeats than HOD and B&tB did in their premieres.

  • Rebecca

    I love P&R but just can’t manage to watch it live most of the time. Still need to stream last night’s episode. Enjoyed TBBT (recorded and watched later) and The Millers last night. Will stream Glee later when I’m ready to cry a bit, before watching the other comedies. Gave up on TCO after the pilot, same with MJF. Still watching Sean but I’m okay with it being cancelled soon if that were to happen. I want Community back.

  • SJ

    What happened to NBC last night?It’s almost close to CW ratings.

    And this is news?

  • Ringercomeback

    Glee did great…
    Tvd needs to staay above 1.0

  • SJ


    I think so. It’s totally depressing too considering it was Grey’s Anatomy’s 200th episode. Modern Family also went down for its 100th last night.

  • Mark Wood

    Could drop to an .8 and it would still be utterly safe for renewal.
