  • Jayson

    Glad to see Grey’s go up! Even though the ratings aren’t where I’d like to see them, you can’t ask for much more from a 10 year old show.

    Way to go Scandal! Scandal continues it’s reign as the highest rated drama on network television, while that embarrassment of a show called Revenge continues to lose viewers by the millions on a weekly basis. :)
    Take notes Ms. Van Camp, and let Kerry Washington show you how to actually attract viewers instead of repelling them. If I were the President of ABC I would pull pull the plug on Revenge today and replace it with repeats of Scandal, as Scandal repeats would do a much better job of holding onto the audience of OUAT.

  • MARTY

    jayson sure you can example ncis

  • Rachor Samien

    Elemantary vs CSI, looks like CSI is better side against E right now

  • Revenger

    ABC should fix Sunday and Thursday

    Thursday
    8 Grey’s anatomy
    9 Scandal
    10 Revenge

    This should make ratings go up for ABC

  • Matt

    Oh, and just realized that SCANDAL is Broadcast TV’s #1 drama. ABC should start promoting that… :D

  • Billy

    Every week we hear all day TBBT is down, because they compare last week’s finals to this week’s preliminaries. It should have an asterisk on TBBT’s preliminary ratings, because in the finals it goes up to or beyond last week’s ratings.

  • Jayson

    @Marty Good point, haha!

  • Ultima

    @Survivor Fan
    Why is TBBT adjusted by about three tenths on average?

    It’s not. If it were, then we would be seeing upward adjustments of four or five tenths to average out the upward adjustments of only one or two tenths.

  • Charmed

    RIP Elementary

  • aciel

    @joe
    we will see about that, are u going to croak when revenge is renewed?

  • Robert

    @Sara

    Was thinking the same thing. I feel bad for hoping the demise of one show will help The Good Wife (and I don’t know if it would mean anything for TGW anyway), but I can still hope haha. I think TGW was still getting 2′s in it’s second season, but of course that was behind the NCIS’s.

  • Paris

    @Joe
    LOVE YOUR COMMENT. LOL
    BUT I LIKE ABC HAVING THIS FAILURE CALLED REVENGE ON ITS SCHEDULE, IT MAKES SCANDAL LOOK EVEN BETTER COMPARED TO THAT FLOP AND PEOPLE AND ADVERTISERS WILL BE EVEN MORE ATTRACTED TO THE SHOW.

    BUT I HAVE NO DOUBT SCANDAL REPEATS WOULD DO BETTER THAN THIS REVENFLOP.

  • aciel

    @joe
    revenge an embarrassment? oh please it has some of the toughest competition and there’s still plenty of people out there that watch revenge if u look at it’s dvr gains

  • Shepherd

    poor Elementary. :(

  • Charmed

    Brooklyn 9-9 gets full season order

  • aciel

    @paris @joe
    i’m happy with scandals success but do u guys really need to hate on a show u guys clearly don’t watch to get more people to watch scandal? because it’s clearly not working
