    Scandal Scandal Scandal. Facing a scandal of its own again below a 3.0 despite being hyped all week with a special guest star.

    All of CBS’ new comedies are officially failures.

  • Jay

    I know Reign got 0.6 but I think it dropped to 1.5m and I think last week it got 0.6 but 1.7m. So can’t we say it went down?

  • Truth


    So it’s ok for fans of other shows *cough* Nikita, TVD *cough* to trash SPN but when SPN fans want to celebrate for a legitimate reason, it’s rubbing it in their faces?

    Get over yourself!

  • willowxandra

    rob60990, you are so pathetic !

    You were nowhere to be found when Revenge hit a series low last Sunday.

    Pathetic loser.

    All of CBS’ new comedies are officially failures.

    It’s better to leave out the adjective than to use it incorrectly and undermine your entire statement by making yourself look like a moron. ;)

  • sinisha

    TVD below a 1.0, sad day. Unfortunately, it was bound to happen at some point. The writers need to let go of this damn triangle, and need to concentrate on smoothing out the ridiculously complicated doppelganger storyline!

  • HeadlessHorseman

    Maybe all the hype is what prevented Scandal from dropping. What will be your excuse when it hits 3.0 again next week?

    Last I checked, both Revenge and Grey’s Anatomy hit series lows this week while that’s just a SEASON low for Scandal. And Scandal more than doubled what Revenge pulled.

    I can barely imagine what your excuses would be if you hated Walking Dead.

    “LOL at TWD! What an embarrassment! It can’t even hit a 10.0!”

  • HalCapone

    [“Elementary just needs to bide its time. I think that this time, next year it will overtake Scandal in the ratings again. Scandal relies on shock value and twists to sustain interest but that is just unsustainable.”]

    I’m not invested in either show but what has Elementary relied on to date to sustain its marginal key demo live ratings? It’s primo post Super Bowl airing hasn’t exactly transformed it into appointment television. Perhaps the 50 and up crowd can’t handle shock and twists:)

  • Charmed

    I don’t watch it but I was hoping TVD would make it to 100 episodes without going below 1.0 :(

  • joy

    Truth,hit a nerve?you deserve it!!Btw,We’re really getting tired of this line-not too shabby for a 9 year old show to over 1.0!! we all got the message,no need to listen to the broken record all the time!! your behaviour is proving all that i’m trying to say!! and don’t bother answering my reply,you guys are pathetic!!

  • Preston

    2.6 for Grey’s…..BUH BYE!!! Cancelled after this season…..

  • rob60990

    “You were nowhere to be found when Revenge hit a series low last Sunday.”

    ABC’s addictive hit drama Revenge has nothing to do with these ratings but how nice of you to mention it!

  • mark

    ok, i love supernatutal, but i think that i’ll stop watching the show because of the fandom. i mean, why you have to be like this to every other show and be happy when the ratings fall? worst fandom ever.

  • karin

    Ga not adjusted up,curious seeing the half & total viewers up?
    On the other side Scandal not down?
    I like both shows btw ..and Nielsen’s not hype,i guess

  • Refrain

    @All of CBS’ new comedies are officially failures.

    While I wouldn’t call any of them hit shows, they’re far from being failures(We are Men aside). I would best describe them as distinctly average. CBS can now pick what they wish to keep and what they wish to discard with ease now. It may decide to cancel one or two shows and premiere 2 new comedies next season.

    In my opinion.

    Will be renewed: 2 Broke Girls, TBBT, The Millers
    May be renewed: Mom, The Crazy Ones
    Will be canceled: 2 and a Half Men(Declining viewership, overall cost)
    Has been canceled: We are Men.

  • Russell

    CBS Thursday line-up is fine with the exception of the Crazy Ones. CBS you have to flip flop Two Men with Crazy Ones. Once Crazy Ones has aired all its’ episodes Bad Teacher could take over.

    Supernatural is not the topic but when SPN IS the topic and have good ratings like this week and people is happy about it I read a LOT of comments traying to BASING the fans saying that TVD will beat it or that we shouldn’t be bragging because it’ll only last one week and blah blah blah so what now, we can be happy and this post because it’s Thursday rating but we can’t be happy in our OWN post??? seems to me that when SPN is doing good people is very willing to go the the post for saying that we don’t have the right to gload and nobody says anything like you said here so it’s obvious that many SPN fans also watch TVD like me but they like SPN most like me and I’m very happy that SPN is numer one this week why? because it’s a nine year old show which was been underrated since the begging BUT that doesn’t mean that I’m happy that TVD has so low rating I’m very surprised actually I didn’t think, it go this low and I now it’ll bounce neek week like I also know that maybe SPN will drop because it’s a filler ep. again and many fans don’t like that, pace out.

  • cris

    NBC is weak on thursdays :(

  • Keith

    I’m sure the people who watch TVD will find another way to watch it cause last night was great and had stuff happen they won’t want to miss !!

  • Brio


    TVD will go back above 1.0 next week, you don’t have to be so upset.
