    TBBT now up week-to-week. Good for The Millers!

  • dame

    What’s weird is that no one cares about tbbt ratings any more, it’s getting boring, we all knows it will be high so no surprises, still a great show though

  • JJ

    Wow parenthood almost matched elementary…

  • Survivor Fan

    Why is TBBT adjusted by about three tenths on average?

  • Shane

    Reign is dead.

  • eelna

    Sad for Reign! Why not above a 2.00 Million. But still good.

  • Tea

    Go greys

  • omabin

    Elementary is a pure bubble show now and honestly if I had to guess, I am not sure I would guess against a friday show or even the good wife when it is pulling comparable numbers on a freaking thursday and is only a sophmore…

    – Vampire Diaries is back on top, where it belongs on the CW! Last week’s fall was due to preemption with football.

    – Scandal MASSIVE HIT!

    – NBC’s Thursday line up an ugly sight.

  • mathew

    ‘Elementary’ Adjusted Down


  • Sara

    Yikes is right for Elementary. This might bode well for TGW and TM. Elementary would have to go a couple more years till syndication and if the ratings are this low now….look out. Better to feed off the already syndicated shows then try to milk this dead cow.

    By the way, Reign already aired in CANADA, and was released online on inlegal websites. And it had tough competition, with Baseball airing.

  • John A

    Glad TVD was high. It was a great episode.

  • Tom

    Hawaii 5 O is looking better to get renewed!!

  • Bobby

    I know it’s nothing to write home about number wise, but Parks and Rec being thrown to die against Big Bang Theory, yet outrating all the new comedies to air on the same night for NBC kind of makes me happy.

    @Survivor Fan Believe it or not, TBBT is such a massive show that the extra minute that it airs can get it a substantial increase in the finals
