    I wish people would stop making this fake argument that anyone criticizing Scandal thinks that the show will be canceled this season. NO ONE is making that stupid assertion.

    Declining ratings = declining interest. It may not have an impact on this season, but seasons 4/5 will definitely suffer/be in jeopardy.

    OUATIW is a pretty good show to me. Too bad it went below a 1.0:( ABC should be extremely happy that GA isn’t lead in dependent after all these years, and now old lady Grey is still doing good. Scandal is just soaring high right now even though it lost some viewers from GA. TVD beat X Factor!!!!! It’s a Friday evening and we should all celebrate!!!! TVD fans should meet up and go for drinks!!! Too bad Reign didn’t adjust up. X Factor sucks and it will always suck! Wasn’t X Factor getting 4.0’s in 2011? And wasn’t Glee doing 5.0 ratings in 2009?

    Reign deserves better.

    “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!!”

    You mean the meltdown you and your fellow crazies had last week when TVD wasn’t #1? No rest for the delusional.

    NBC’s comedies are killing Parenthood. They need to give it a better lead in in the Spring!

    @Samunto I know Cheryl’s supposed to be coming back, I’m not sure about Dannii, she seems to be comfortable on X Factor Australia. I think a panel of Simon, Cheryl, Demi, and Louis would be great, and it also would be great with Dannii instead of Demi, it would be like 2008-2010 when XF was at its best.

  • Marc

    Should have kept Whitney….

  • AlanHalliwell

    Glee did alot better than I thought I don’t think it ever had such a low lead in

  • CrimTV


    No but I love Nicole Scherzinger so she has to stay on the panel!

  • Maya

    Reign did terrible!

    Is The Voice airing on thursdays now too, or was this a one off?

  • Russell

    Sean Saves The World and MJF Show shoud end at end of December. If there are any episodes left they can be burned off on Saturday. (What’s up with Sean Hayes make-up?)

    ABC’s Scandal is becoming very boring and Elementary is becoming very entertaining. I think I’ll DVR Scandal and watch Elementary in real time.

    CBS is doing pretty good on Thursday. They established two nights of comedy and now they have to make sure that next year’s comedies are not just okay but great. CBS is the network to beat in viewers, households, and 25-54 demo. Their 18-49 demo is respectable and will probably place second in the November sweeps and they are make tons of money in revenue. If ABC comes in second it will be because of the Country Music Awards and the upcoming American Music Awards.

    Why isn’t Wonderland cancelled yet?

    Truth,Now TVD is Back at the top where it belongs!! my point earlier week has been made,so your nonsense will not matter to me now!! bye bye!!

    X Factor UK hasn’t seen the 10mil range in a while. Last weekend it was around 7.6mil including catch up which was a 6year low. Then again, in the UK they hardly publish the young important demos (16-34) but i think XF pretty much wins over Strictly Come Dancing (aka the DWTS) which in overall viewers is beating XF by 2mil+.

    The UK media is pretty much sure Simon will return next year. And they tend to be quite right when it comes to TV gossip.

    @Reign Fan

    Totally disagree. The story on TVD this season has been pretty good, and better yet it’s actually helping to make sense of the mess that was season 4. Vast improvement if only that they have been able to make Elena a less annoying character again. Still prefer Katherine though.

  • Charmed

    @CrimTV me too! I would love her to stay, but unfortunately all signs are pointing to her leaving :(

  • CrimTV

    I don’t see why The Crazy Ones didn’t get the TBBT lead-in. It gets a 2.1 out of a 2.6 whereas The Millers gets a 2.6 out of a huge 4.9. TCO would have done so much better behind TBBT.

  • Percysowner

    TVD is a hit. How everybody says, TVD is boring. Surely it is not as good the first seasons, and some storylines are messed up. But I love it. What do SPN fans say yet?

    That I watch BOTH SPN and TVD. Also too Arrow, Tomorrow People and when it comes back Nikita. This really isn’t a war. SPN fans are happy when their show does well. Just as fans of every show is happy when they do well.

    Gee Rob, nasty much!

    @Samunto XF UK recent ratings may seem low compared to previous years, but it’s still head and shoulders above the rest. Also, it’s still to be renewed, I haven’t heard anything about new contracts?
