    TTP :(

    A smart thing to do would’ve been for ABC to air a new episode of NASHVILLE after the CMA’s last night. Would’ve easily garnered around a 2.5 in the demo, and probably would’ve helped it in the long run.

  • CBSviewer

    Go CSI :)
    Series low for Criminal Minds ?

  • Matt M.

    Series low for criminal minds in viewers and the demo?!

    “A smart thing to do would’ve been for ABC to air a new episode of NASHVILLE after the CMA’s last night.”

    How the hell is it smart to cut an hour of a highly rated music awards show just to air an episode of a failing show?

  • Carl

    Wow at Survivor carrying the night for CBS.

  • Matt M.


    Maybe to help boost the show’s ratings and help promote it? Both deal with country music. And some the actors were presenters. Would’ve made a lot of sense!

    The past three Wednesdays had been tough for CM and CSI due to World Series and CMA Awards. Here’s hoping they rebound next week. Arrow did well. It got its male viewers back. I think TTP is fine as long as it doesn’t go down further. 9pm is tough too.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    Even airing Nashville out of primetime would have given it better ratings than the 1.4 it got before

  • Mike

    Csi will be gone soon withing 2 years

    Glad to see CSI up. I think the show is still successful enough to last 1-2 more seasons. Ted Danson is a great addition to the cast and the show is still very entertaining.

    Shocked to see Criminal Minds that low. Last night’s episode was directed by Matthew Gray Gubler and his episodes tend to be very dark but creative.

    How do you guys think the 8pm hour is going to do today?
    I think:
    BBT- 4.7
    The Voice- 2.8
    X-Factor- 1.5
    Wonderland- 1.1

    I’m rooting for Vampire Diaries to be 3rd in the hour. Die, X Factor, die.

    CBS must be getting great bang for their buck on Survivor, which beat both Minds and NCISLA this week (and almost tied Molly/Broke)!

  • Juan

    I forgot:
    The Millers- 2.7
    Vampire- 1.1

  • Scott


    X Factor lower than 1.5 due to the fact there are no results.

    Horrible for the X Factor but a spokesperson for the show said somewhere in an article “people think X Factor is done but it’s really not” and “If it gets renewed….”

    FOX is not getting that *minimum* 2.0 number.

  • Samunto

    At the end of the day, it’s also about earning money by selling ad breaks and having high ratings to compensate for those low-rated nights.

    There’s no way ABC would have aired a failing Nashville at 10. Doesn’t make sense to gain a 2.5 at 10 instead of a 4+.
    And these award shows always take the whole of primetime.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Come on Criminal Mimes! Please go up next week!

  • Owen

    Wow. Survivor is doing spectacularly well for a show in its 14th year. I was wondering if 30 would be its final season, but I suspect that if CBS has its way it’ll be on for quite a few more years to come. And I am VERY okay with that.

  • j

    If all Nashville can manage is a 2.0 from a 4.3, no reason to give it a primo slot like that and lose a bunch of $.


    Go CBS!
