    With numbers as low as this and salaries as high as Simon’s, I think it’s a safe bet that “X Factor” will be canceled after this season. Then, there will be tons of media hoopla when Simon Cowell slinks back to his judging chair on “American Idol” next year. I liked him on AI but can’t stand the format of X and tuned out after the very first episode. Stick to “Idol,” Simon! As for “Glee’s” low numbers, it is being sunk by X and actually performed better. Swap timeslots FOX!

    Still good for SSTW & Parenthood
    ABC is a lame at 8pm

  • Blah

    TVD sucks! Dunno how people even watch that supid show! Hopefully everyone will realise just how dumb it is and the ratings will drop just like GG and 90210 did!

  • Gabe


    Yeah I have to agree… I mean I still watch it, but after season 2 I just watched for the Originals. The plot TVD has going on right now is kind of crazy, Nina Dobrev is now playing THREE characters…

    The way things are going she’ll probably be playing the entire cast at one point.

  • Irene

    What about all the folks that watch huluplus and shows online?

    I do a lot of marathon watching so I don’t want to lose the shows I watch. I hope we are being counted also.

    “@truth…please get your mommie to find a more age appropriate site for you to be on…”

    Ladies and gentlemen, the pinnacle of intelligence from a typical TVD nutjob.

  • charmedcraft

    I’m very happy for Reign, it’s really holding good.

    That’s good for TVD also that it beat two other networks in it’s time slot.

  • thesnowleopard

    Man, TVD’s ratings are all over the place this year.

  • Bored Now

    Truth, seriously, what the hell? I’ve never seen anyone more oblivious to their own actions as yourself. I mean, you’ve got to be trolling here, right? You can’t possibly be as unaware of your own hypocrisy as you make yourself out to be.

    I’ll grant you, there’s been a number of annoying comments from a few TVD fans looking to cause trouble too but no one here is pushing it more than you are. You clearly came here tonight looking to cause trouble and wind everyone up into an argument. How is your behavior any better than the people you are calling TVD nutjobs?

    Then you have the nerve to have a go at Angela for calling you out about it, same as you did me last week. You ever stop to consider that if you didn’t act like such a child then maybe people wouldn’t feel the need to talk down to you?

  • thesnowleopard


    Funny how you weren’t preaching this kind of moderation and tolerance to TVD fans last week.

    @Bitter Go On Fan (Former Bitter Ringer Fan)

    So far this season, SPN has beaten TVD twice. And it’s only on its fifth episode. I’d call that more than a “few.” Maybe you count differently. Then again, you’re also still bitter about Ringer, which explains a lot.

  • thesnowleopard

    @Bored Now

    “A few”? Dude, you and a bunch of other TVD fans were practically having a stroke over the whole thing last week. Maybe you shouldn’t be the one preaching to Truth about trolling.

  • Bored Now

    You might want to go check your facts there, thesnowleopard. I’m primarily a Supernatural fan, although I do enjoy TVD too. Last week I was saying pretty much exactly the same thing as I’m saying now. That trolling from either fandom is damned annoying and needs to stop.

    Personally I’m happy when both Supernatural and TVD are doing well in the ratings, and could care less about which one happens to do better on any given week. Long as they both get renewed, I’m good.

  • ToXiX


    I think The Millers would be a better fit after Two and a Half Men.
    I don’t care for The Millers though. Mom is the only new CBS sitcom I like.

  • Truth

    @Bored Now

    “I mean, you’ve got to be trolling here, right?”

    If it helps your blood pressure, you may believe whatever suits you. That’s not my concern.

    Define “pushing it more”. How is it any different from the other noise here? This is a point you seemed to deliberately avoid last week. It seems like you’re projecting all your frustrations from this site towards me in an attempt to justify your grievances.

    If my posts bother you so, then why not simply ignore them? Should be an easy task for someone that claims moral superiority.

  • Truth

    Exactly. TVD favoritism, straight and through.

  • Dodger

    I’m surprised at the hostilities towards Supernatural here. It’s pretty stupid, but from what I’ve seen it’s mostly coming from Vampire diaries fans.

  • Scott

    The Voice was very low due to the fact….

    A) It aired on a Thursdsy which has only happened once or twice before
    B) Not that this really counts but competition with X Factor, though that’s another low for that show.

    FOX: This is the breaking point with X Factor. Since the Season 3 premiere of 6.5 mil I was up and down for a fourth season possibility but I highly doubt it after the past two weeks.

  • Kev

    wow, and thats how it’s done, way to go TVD!

  • j

    What’s the point of the CW rivalry anyway? The network has a better chance of being cancelled than the net cancelling either of those shows.

  • Networkman

    The Voice airing at 8pm last night certainly didn’t help X-Factor. It’s ratings were pathetic coming in after The Vampire Diaries. I really think FOX should cancel it after this season. It is simply not working. Viewers have lost complete interest in the show.

    I’m sorry to see CBS 9pm hour not as strong as last season when Person of Interest held the spot. At midseason(January)CBS should announce that this is the last season for Two & a Half Men. It may get some viewers back that abandon the show to watch the final 12 episodes. Also maybe the writing will get stronger as the writers would want to wrap things up correctly. I want to see more than just their escapades with women and partying. I would love to see Jon Cryer’s character Alan become independent. Show him getting a job and how he deals with that and his wanting to eventually leave that house.

    The MJF Show is definitely one of the biggest disappointments of the season. It should be able to garner high 1’s on his star power alone. I feel NBC is now giving more support towards Sean Saves the World hoping to create that into a modest hit.
