    Scandal so far this season is pretty weak, so I can’t say i’m surprised about the ratings drop.

    I think the writers are morons for turning Olivia from a strong woman into an idiot.

    8:00 ABC NBA Finals Game 2 – Live (8-10:31PM) 5.8/17 14.57

    This is for the NBA Finals these year, and since these teams are not really small market team teams you can really say that the NBA is the # 2 league in America. MLB is now number 3.

    It hurts to compare OUAT Wonderland and The CW’s ratings.

  • Matt

    very BAD for CBS. 2’s all around. 2.5 Men? More like 2.3 Men. Crazy Ones will be cancelled. CBS should’ve renewed ROB, never dipped below a 2.7. OK for The Millers, although a 2.7 out of a 5.2 is almost the half and not very impressive.

  • Candy

    @rob50990, reading your comments is so tragic.

  • Dillan

    TVD adjusted up 2 tenths?! Wow, that has to be a first. Amazing! :D

  • reedmac

    I recon if TVD and SPN were paired on Thursday this season the CW might have had a chance of beating NBC at 8 and 9?

  • j

    I’m thinking Mom will get the post-BBT timeslot in January? Almost 50% dropoff is sad.

  • rob60990

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

    TVD already beat OUATIW last week. Embarrassing for ABC yet they keep heavily promoting it.

  • Rick

    Ouch to STTW and MJF

  • Charlie

    Reign already sinking in the ratings. Keep doing like this and the cancelation bear with love the epic meal.

  • Rick

    @Matt Crazy Ones canceled? It’s the #1 new comedy on CBS so far.

  • Valentin

    Y’all claiming The Crazy Ones is killing everything but it only drop a little 0.1point whereas the Millers lost half of a point. Say what you want, but TCO is steady & holding by itself.

    sucks for parenthood such a great show, I hope nbc renew it for a shortened sixth season, or cancel it now and announce this as the final season giving time for the writers to wrap things up,

  • JJA

    Reign is so good. Like Nikita, it’s a well acted and produced show that can’t find its audience.

    I hope they choose to renew it for 13 episode seasons. I think it could work better like that.


    matt so what dos that say abot nbc and abc fox had the world series cbs is on the way again to be the most watched in viewers and demo nbc will collapse again without voice and football

  • rob60990

    The Millers needs to go or at least be moved since CBS already gave it a full season. It lost almost half its big lead-in and there’s no way it could stand on its own. Next week it will sink when aired after a TBBT repeat.

  • Wright

    Impressive for TVD. I still have hope for Reign. Reign is well written and has an extrordinary cast.

  • Kate

    ABC will probably keep Once as is. They are too embarrassed by the disaster they created by not using it as the OUAT hiatus filler it was supposed to be.

  • Matt

    @Rick a 2.3 is rather bad for a CBS show, let alone a CBS comedy, let alone a CBS Thursday Comedy. 2 years ago, ROB held steady in the 3.0, 10 million range, and it’s all-time low was 2.7 and 9 million viewers, and it was cancelled. The Crazy Ones is already at a 2.3 and 8 million viewers. Just some comparison. And, I believe that The Millers is now CBS’s #1 New Comedy.
