    I guess Simon is coming back to the UK X Factor now, yes! Hopefully he brings Demi with him

  • Samunto

    That TVD beat the walking dead show that is The X Factor is the news here.

    Sean hardly gained from The Voice and MJF hit a new series low.

    Anyone notice how weak the 9pm hour has become?! Grey’s is leading at lows, CBS has dropped and NBC can barely register. That slot is up for grabs.

    Nice to see Vampire Diaries get the ratings boost it deserved. The last two weeks have seen a real improvement in the story. I think The CW can consider their Tuesday through Thursday schedule a success, albeit with the non-Originals newbie shows starting to struggle a bit. Now if they can just cut the less impressive Monday and Friday shows…

    Not much to be said about X Factor. A terrible show getting terrible ratings. I don’t favour reality television so I won’t even pretend to be totally unbiased here. It’s time the reality bubble burst.

    Glad Elementary got an uptick. Along with Person of Interest it’s the best show on CBS right now.

    Why didn’t reing adjust up when it got 0.7/0.7???

    “NBC has to be pretty happy with Sean Saves The World. Its up this week and the show is getting better.”

    Yup they’re happy it pulled a 1.4 out of a 2.5 and came 4th in its timeslot.

    Well said! ;)

  • starship

    It didn’t get a 0.7/0.7. If it had, it would have been a 0.7 in the preliminaries too.

  • marcos

    yay TVD deserves it! the best CW show

  • Samunto


    It’s Cheryl and Danni he’s going back with.

    Then ofcourse, no one knows which UK channel has grabbed the rights to that new Israeli hit show ‘Rising Star’. Wouldn’t be suprised if ITV nabbed it given how low XF has been perfoming. Last wkd was a 6year rating-low!

  • Pepper

    oh man, if NBC had its normal line-up then TVD probably would have come in second

    Good night for CBS/the CW, horrible for Fox.

  • Scandalicious

    CW is third in the 8pm hour! Nice work TVD! That is awesome. Though Scandal isn’t as much of a beast as it was at the beginning of the season, it is still doing really well. I have hope that it can climb back into the 3’s! I can’t believe MJ Fox got a 1.0 – ouch. The Voice inflation made Sean Saves the World look not so bad. Still, even The Voice pulling a 2.5 last night is bad. CBS and ABC still beat NBC even though NBC had an original Voice episode last night… The fact that Reign is remaining solid at a 0.6 is good I think. It really is a brawl between Reign and The Tomorrow People to see who gets another season..

  • CrimTV


    But X Factor UK still gets 8-10 million final ratings viewers where X Factor US struggles to get more than 4 million.

  • Brian D.

    Absolutely SHOCKED that NBC’s show adjusted down. Especially The Voice. Though the football game in Washington would’ve made the ratings leap bound on ratings for NBC.

  • joy

    Truth,i was just wondering where you were? How does it feel now when someone is attacking your show randomly!! remember last week u did the same thing!! now it’s time to taste your own medicine!!

  • whyIcannotPost

    yeah!!! The Blacklist is the best show of the week at 10 pm! :D

  • David

    The X Factor was beaten by Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project and Dads, and was even beaten by The Vampire Diaries on The CW tonight! What a flop.

    Also, why should Scandal fans be worrying about the show getting a 2.8?

  • Reign Fan

    Reign up in viewers :) I’ll take it, but I was hoping for an upward adjustment. Oh well there’s always next Thursday.
    Good for Elementary.
    Sorry, but TVD is just getting ridiculous. They need a better storyline quick. Though I know the ratings say otherwise.



    The Voice @ series low! Didn’t really save SSTW or MJF! Parenthood 1.3–BIG OUCH FOR ENTIRE SKED!

    Alice came back & nobody cared! The GA/Scandal race just got tighter!

    Amazing that Glee outrated XFactor, but FOX still pathetic for night.

    TVD out rated FOX @ 8:00 (WTG, Kid!) but Reign not reigning so well.

    TBBT is still a beast, but TM is so dependant (but still good) as TCO still floundering @ 9:00 & 2.5M series low so not good–Elementary still OK @ 10:00.

  • Valentin

    The Big Bang Theory 4.9pts, The Millers 2.6pts (-2.3pts), The Crazy Ones 2.1pts (-0.5pts), TAAHM 2.0pts (-0.1pts)

    Say what you want but The Crazy Ones looks stronger than The Millers.
