  • MARTY

    matt matt matt a 3.3 to a 3.2 is nothing 20 million viewers to 10 million ncis still the most watched show on tv end of discussion

    @Billy
    Every week we hear all day TBBT is down, because they compare last week’s finals to this week’s preliminaries.

    Comparing preliminary ratings to final ratings is the correct thing to do (except when comparing non-timeshifted ratings for a live coast-to-coast event to the same thing the previous week/year).

    It should have an asterisk on TBBT’s preliminary ratings

    While I do agree in principle that it might be useful to denote which shows don’t air aligned to the hour or half-hour, I think it’s fruitless. NFL preemptions typically cause more significant adjustments and those get red, bold, italicized notes that no one bothers to read, so what’s an asterisk going to accomplish?

    @Revenger, I like your schedule but I don’t want Supernatural to move again, so keep it on Tuesday’s and the Originals to Monday (This is specifically because Tuesday at 9 is the CW death spot when it’s not occupied by Supernatural, and I think launching any new show even the spinoff is a bad idea).

    @Sara Bibel

    My post was eaten again. Probably because I used that nasty combination of “n f l” and “p r e e m p t i o n s.” ;)

    Hope, REIGN can stabilize around a 1.7 Million Viewers and 0.6 rating.

    Greys looks terrible…What happened?

    @Paris
    2 Scandal repeats aired in place if Lucky 7. They scored .9 and .6

    You may note that Revenge has never hit below 1.0

  • Andrew43

    @HeadlessHorseman(Formely JacobYates)

    Well, you should consider exactly that those were repeats. And Scandal repeats better than Revenge.

    @Marty

    If memory serves, NCIS hit a 3.1 this week, two tenths below Scandal’s 3.3. And even if it was just a tenth of a difference, Scandal still came out higher than NCIS. Total viewership is completely irrelevant.

    @paris
    as the previous poster mentioned above revenge has never hit below a 1.0 and its very unlikely this season nor the next the lowest revenge has hit was a 1.4. so stop hating seriously your just pathetic

  • Scandalicious

    Now The Millers rating increase this week rise makes more sense. Sad for The Crazy Ones but at least it matched last week’s rating. Still happy for Scandal!

  • Revenger

    @Timmy G I actually like that as well. It could go more like this

    Monday
    8 The Originals
    9 Flash

    Tuesday
    8 SPN spin off
    9 Supernatural

    So on

  • j

    Oh another two point drop from Bang to Millers.

  • KC

    @vicky
    Greys looks terrible…What happened?

    The show is bad now, that’s what has happened. It’s time to pack it up. 10 yrs is too long.

  • Dee

    @vicky Shonda happened. She killed off or fired the most interesting actors/characters and features the weaker ones like Arizona, Jo, and Meredith ad nauseam. Yes Meredith is a show staple but Ellen Pompeo is a poor actress in comparison to say, Kate Walsh!

    “2 Scandal repeats aired in place if Lucky 7. They scored .9 and .6

    YOU’RE RIGHT BUT SCANDAL REPEATS DIDN’T HAD OUAT AS LEAD IN, IT HAD FAILED NEW COMEDY TROPHY WIFE.

    AND REVENGE WILL NOT HIT BELOW 1.0 THIS SEASON BECAUSE ABC IS TOO AFRAID TO REPEAT IT AND HIT A 0.0

  • THE OLD MAN

    Of course expected the 0.3 increase for TBBT & 0.1 for GA

    ALCS also up 0.1 & hoping that’s the culprit for the downswing for CBS 9-11

    CW still looking good

  • charmedcraft

    That’s good that Reign didn’t get adjusted down. I hope it can hold steady at 0.8 or higher, it’s a good show so far.

  • Dee

    @Paris turn off the caps. Screaming to get your point across is pathetic and annoying.

  • aciel

    @paris
    well last time i checked revenges repeats it got a .6 seriously your just pathetic why would they cancel revenge just to put scandal repeats. it’s not doing that badly
