    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

    Why should The Crazy Ones be getting a 3.0, compared to all the other comedies it’s doing fine! The other networks’ new shows aren’t so hot either!

    It keeps dropping every week.
    So I’m right when I say “down, down, down”

    Private Practice was doing better at this point of its run. It didn’t prevent it from ending in the low 1s.

  • CrimTV


    Of course the ratings are gonna drop week to week.

    Thursday night football was Da Bears vs the Jints. So the CW lost the Metro NY market AND the Chicago market.

    Plus, it was shown on the NFL cable network instead of ESPN. NFLN is in far fewer households then basic cable ESPN. So more NY and Chi people had to use the OTA CW stations, cutting the CW ratings even more.

    The Big Bang Theory was up vs same night last year (4.5) but The Millers was down vs Two and a Half Men (3.5). Anyway, TM was ok last night. The pilot was way better though. I thought CBS saw something promising on this show that it deserves the post-TBBT slot. But for now, it’s definitely because The Millers is a CBS produced show. I’m hoping the show gets funnier. Crossing my fingers for a Super Clyde miracle pick-up. That show has a lot of potential.

  • Billy

    The Millers is nothing more than 60% of The Big Bang Theory.

    Put it anywhere else on the schedule and the show would barely crack a 2.0. Look how TAAHM has lost so much ratings since it lost TBBT lead in. The Millers ratings are no big deal, when you count it has the biggest lead in on all of TV.

    That is not bad for Original repeat. It matched what BATB pretty much all of last season. Cant believe Spn was No.1 on CW this week.

  • Matt

    does everyone at least agree that big bang should be at 9??

    I would have 20+ 6.0+ every week

  • John A

    I liked The Originals alot and didnt expect to. Hope the numbers stay up.

  • Michael

    – Glee was only up because of the memorial episode of Cory. Ratings will be back to normal next week.

    – Scandal phenomenal numbers. That little show that could for ABC. Season 1 the show was in the bubble, at risk of cancellation, then season 2 came along and has done wonders for the network.

    – TVD is still safe. Not as popular, as it once was. No longer “must see TV” for viewers.

    – X Factor is just not needed in America. Leave it as an overseas talent show.

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

    Really??? crazy ones drop FULL POINT. NOW HALF POINT and is most promoted show on earth. 90 years old Robin W was on every single talk show. SMG too. If they can be successfull with that promotion how? TAHM wich now is disaster(in terms of quality) is on way to beat it. The Millers is ok i agree. But only because TBBT. Move TBBT from thursday and picture will be close to nbc picture.

    X Factor is just not needed in America. Leave it as an overseas talent show.

    Technically the US version is an overseas version. It was created in the UK.

  • CrimTV


    Sarah Michelle Gellar was on about 2 or 3 talk shows, hardly ‘every single’. I would hardly think CBS would be the same as NBC if they moved TBBT.

  • SJ


    I don’t understand this logic. I mean, they have to air something after Big Bang. And if the ratings stabilize to where CBS thinks The Millers can anchor an hour next year then it will have paid off. If not, well, Big Bang ain’t going anywhere for a while. They can just try again next year…

  • joy

    CrimTv,So you’re one of those psycho supernatural fan who is praying for TVD’s failure every week!!

  • EatMorePez

    @The Booper

    The football game aired on an independent channel in Chicago, not on The CW.

  • Petar

    Will NBC still try one more comedy hour on tuesday as they are saying???
    I mean as one great brain once said:
    “Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”

  • SJ

    I would hardly think CBS would be the same as NBC if they moved TBBT.

    But then again, you are not a delusional Person of Interest fanboy… ;)

  • HalCapone

    Even broadcast television’s biggest ratings monster, Big Bang can’t help the mediocrity (I’m being overly generous and diplomatic) that follows it. And NBC is well, just a godawful train wreck on every night without The Voice or Sunday Night Football.
