    Unfortunate for “Reign”. Hopefully it doesn’t fall anymore.

    even though i’m not really fan a scandal i think that it’s pretty delusional of you people to call scandal a flop when first of all pretty much all season its stayed in the 3?s and a 2.9 rating is not a flop that’s still a hit. so stop hating if you don’t like the show . its like the number 1 scripted drama on abc. unless it falls below a 2.0 (which will never happen for at least 5 seasons from now) come back.
    They’re delusional.. Saying its a flop is ridiculous… A flop is not the #1 show on a network and I believe still averaging #2 drama on network tv… Far from a flop….

    LMBO, to all the Scandal haters who say it’s a flop, go get mental help because y’all are Kray Kray, Scandal is a hit wheter or not you like it or not and @rob60990 LOL Revenge is a flop, there is nothing you can say or do to change that. So choke on that!
    You sound almost as pathetic as rob saying scandal is a flop…A flop is not going to continue to air it’s episodes out and going to get renewed for a S4…

    The tvbythenumbers comments sections are hardly bare able anymore.. All the trolls and pathetic hating on a show whether it’s in 1st place or a show that is declining some but is still in no danger of getting cancelled.

    “SMH at everyone bashing The Crazy Ones. It’s better than The Millers and 2.5 Men put together.”

    That it may be but that’s not exactly a very high bar to reach. The Crazy Ones isn’t very funny as a sitcom, Robin Williams’ world class improvisation skills are far too confined by the rules of network TV, and the cast has almost no chemistry. I tried giving the show several opportunities but just couldn’t get go past the fourth episode. I’m not alone; Almost no one I interact with regularly watches the show anymore, so I’m really mystified where these numbers are coming from.

    I’m personally just waiting for the other shoe to drop. After the name recognition runs its course the show will collapse under its own mediocrity.

    I think if Two and a Half Men doesn’t get more viewer by the end of November that season 11 will be the last season of Two and a Half Men.
