    supernatural should just shut up! nyc football was on air in new york, new jersey, and in this area. tvd is still more popular, and spn will fall next week.

  • eelna

    *i meant the supernatural fans

  • CrimTV


    I am aware I it’s just that TVD has never been below a 1.0 in the finals and yes it will inevitably happen (probably this season) but it’s like it’s the end of the +1.0 era, haha :)

  • jake

    Glee’s best rating since the 4th season premiere!
    Hopefully it will gain a few viewers to stay in the low 2’s.

  • CrimTV

    That’s amazing, Glee rose 81%!

  • KJ Styles

    @erwanfromfrance- “Glad CBS is going down, down, down…..”

    They have the number one comedy, the number one (and two) new comedy, and the number two drama. How are they going down?

  • chloe

    Scandal can last like 10 years because of shonda rimes
    and doing good in the ratings

  • Joe Daniels

    The Vampire Diaries is the second most watched show Adult 18-49 this week. It’ll be completely and utterly fine. No worries.

  • Matt

    CBS really cant be happy about any of their new shows. None are doing well at all

  • Wagner

    WOW at Glee. Glad that things are going this way on NBC’s Thursday, Parks maybe safe due to the lack of strong shows on Thursday.

  • eridapo

    These rating are pathetic of OTA. I realizes every year the ratings for OTA broadcast continue to decline, but when you look at those NBC numbers you wonder just how low can they go. Those are cable numbers.

    What has the decline being like when compare to week 3 of last year. Is is another 10%?

  • CrimTV


    CBS really cant be happy about any of their new shows. None are doing well at all

    The Millers and The Crazy Ones are doing good/great!

  • Paul P

    At least they’re not NBC.

  • Ytr

    Ugh.. It’s all because of this stupid football in NYC :/

  • Matt

    This is what I would do for thurs at CBS

    8- The Crazy Ones
    830- The Millers
    9- Big Bang Theory
    930- Bad Teacher
    10- Elementary

  • EatMorePez

    Why are people excited about Supernatural being the highest rated show on The CW? That’s like bragging that you live in the warmest city north of the Arctic Circle.

  • Matt

    I meant that as a whole– We are men, mom, hostages, millers, crazy ones — all are not doing that hot in terms of where they should be.

    The millers after big bang should be getting a 3.5+ — anything below is not good

    the crazy ones should be getting above a 3.0+

    mondays fell apart so idk where any of them should be haha

  • Petar

    Interesting. If crazy ones is below 2.0 in next week or two as i think what will cbs do next? Even heavy promotion can’t help single cam om cbs. Move TAHM for last season on monday(for mom) and POI back to thursday? Or try with more new sitcoms till end of the year??? Or like TBS use TBBT reruns more for the night. The millers look most strong from all new cbs shows. Not sure that if or when is move away from TBBT 5.0 lead in won’t callapse too. And at least this year cbs has HIMYM.

    TBBT stars are so happy right now. They can ask as much money as they want and cbs will pay.

  • Mark Wood

    SPN fans are well aware of how preemptions impact ratings, remember it has aired more episodes on Thursday with Football then VD currently has, though that will change by the end of this season.

    It’s that we have had a few ties, but no victory yet.

    And yes we also know that it is very likely for SPN to drop in the future, after all we have seasons of data that shows events like that.

  • eridapo

    Deadline just reported that NBC last night tied the All-time Thursday Low and finished 7th in primetime… WOW..
