    The ratings were up over the cruddy numbers they got last week with no TBBT lead-in.

    No *new* TBBT lead-in on Halloween night.

    The millers isn’t compatible with TBBT!

    CBS needs a younger show to follow TBBT.

    @Paulo PT

    Younger shows aren’t compatible with CBS ;)

  • Valentin

    They should switch The Millers & The Crazy Ones or put Mom there!

  • Wanda

    I hope all shows get renewed especially The Crazy Ones. 9pm normally was Grey’s but now The Crazy Ones and Grey’s the next day both excellent shows

  • Sleepy

    Millers ratings are a joke. You can only ride coat tails for so long.
