    Big bang, as usual, adjusted up multiple tenths. Still can’t get into the show, but great to see a sitcom get these kinds of ratings.

    NBC’s numbers are awful.

    At least we don’t have to hear now that TBBT is down. It was adjusted up from the 4.9 to a 5.2 just like last week. To say every week it is down comparing the fast nationals to the finals is like comparing apples to oranges.

    lmao at Scandal. Already below a 3.0 and less viewers than Grey’s Anatomy.

  • hannah

    Awesome for TVD & BBT! Not so hot for Reign.

  • gg

    TBBT is consistently being adjusted 2 or 3 points

  • eelna

    YAY Tvd but little sad for Reign though, hope it doesn’t fall further

  • Maximillian

    Sucks for Reign not to adjust up. Better not fall anymore!

    Great for TVD though

  • T

    Reign :(

  • Ben

    Vampire Diaries killed it.

  • Ryan

    Reign sucks

  • James

    CW will not give Reign the back nine. Reign should be moved to be Mondays or Fridays fast.

  • AniMatsuri

    Seems some people are getting over the hype that is Scandal.

  • Nasir

    Good job TVD!

  • Hi

    Wow, CW beat ABC again!

    How many days/hours to OUTiW be canceled and pulled???

  • Matt

    LMAO at Rob. Too bad SCANDAL is ABC’s highest rated drama, Thursday’s #1 drama, builds on it’s lead in, and is the #1 10PM drama on television. Oh, but yet it is such a flop. “LMAO at Scandal”? More like LMAO at YOU.

  • jT

    MOM is going to catch up and surpass both the crazy ones and the millers.

    Glad to see Elementary back up! I love this show! Even though I don’t understand the hype behind Scandal, its unfortunate the ratings fell but still huge for a 10 p.m. show. I still believe its a big enough powerhouse to launch a new show. Anyone who tries to downplay the power of Scandal simply needs to chill; and this is coming from someone who loves Revenge and doesn’t watch Scandal at all.

  • JonB

    Such a troll , Rob. Get over it. Scandal is a hit

  • A

    Last week The Vampire Diaries beat NBC’s lineup, this week it beat ABC’s show.

  • reedmac

    I’ve never seen a CW show adjust up more than 1 tenth before. Anyway good week for TVD and SPN and pretty good for Arrow and The Originals too.


    I disagree with moving Reign, at least behind TVD it will get the best ratings it possibly can for its 13 episodes and then be replaced mid season. If they cancelled or moved it now what would they put there instead?
