    Was hoping HOD WOULD adjust up

  • It’s funny

    I’ve not fully grasped the prelim vs. final ratings math, so forgive my ignorance, but… What factors into those 8-10 p.m. shows being adjusted up without outside factors like pre-emptions? I feel like this is the second or third week in a row that that’s happened.

    I’m open to an education of sorts. :D

  • Dillan

    Great for 2BG.

  • victor Hugo

    Week after week and HOD still the same rating.. how this is possible?

  • It’s funny

    And how does Hostages adjust down without any sort of overrun factor from its lead-in? I’m really confused, sorry.

    Happy Castle didn’t adjust down, though.

    Great for Blacklist!

  • k:Alex

    Ok, Blacklist is officially a hit.

  • Anthony

    Was hoping HOD WOULD adjust up

    Why would you hope that, it was preempted for football in St. Louis. The best you could reasonably hope for in that situation is that it doesn’t adjust down (which is what happened).

  • Deo

    Yay for Castle not adjusting down:) And, even knowing it doesn´t matter, it´s the 3rd week in a row Castle beats The Blacklist in viewers!

  • Michael

    I wonder, if DWTS had a younger and more current judging panel if it would reflect in ratings? Goodness gracious, skews so old!

  • Ryan T

    HIMYM is very, very consistent.

    Last five episodes now: 3.1, 3.0, 3.1, 3.0, 3.0.

  • Simon

    Total viewers mean nothing. It’s the 18-49 demographic that counts.

  • Matt

    ABC has top two most watched entertainment programs of the night! :D

  • Scandalicious

    It blows my mind that DWTS can have more viewers than The Voice and score over two points below it! ABC needs to do something about that! I am really glad that The Blacklist and the CW lineup held. Also glad to see HIMYM back at a 3.0 and a nice adjustment for 2 Broke Girls as well. Now it is stating to look the solid show it used to be.

  • Brandy

    Yay 2 Broke Girls adjusted up!HoD & BatBdidnt adjust down

  • TV God

    Mom :/ This show is growing on me!

  • Addy

    Meeh, B&TB wasn’t adjusted down. :( Why don’t you die already!!
    HIMYM is pretty solid. The show is also solid and still makes me laugh out loud every time I watch it.

    “I’ve not fully grasped the prelim vs. final ratings math, so forgive my ignorance, but… What factors into those 8-10 p.m. shows being adjusted up without outside factors like pre-emptions?”

    Think of it like election coverage. You don’t need 100% of precincts reporting in to make a very good estimate, but sometimes those estimates are just a bit off. There’s a good chance that Hostages just went from something like 1.26 to 1.24.

    There are a small number of shows in which the estimates don’t work quite as good as others. The Big Bang Theory springs to mind as the show that changes the most for no “real” reason.

  • Reprise

    2 Broke Girls I feel has more direction this season, the quality has improved quite a bit and it genuinely is an amusing show.

  • CrimTV

    CBS may have just saved 2 Broke Girls.
