    Fair enough, but you’re referring to the overnight numbers. The final UK ratings are posted on BARB and the 3rd live show results received 9.69 million viewers and throughout this 10th series, the ratings have ranged between 8.60 and 10.61 million viewers.

    Reign didn’t do terrible. It held steady. There is no show on the CW that can retain TVDs ratings so far. The show is doing fine and deserves to be renewed.

    CBS, Thursday at 9 PM

    Person of Interest, November 3, 2011: 2.7
    Person of Interest, November 8, 2012: 2.9
    The Crazy Ones/Men, November 8, 2013: 2.1/2.0


  • SPN Fan

    SPN is far superior to TVD.



    LOSER! The X-Factor


    One upside: We Don’t think Fox’s The X-Factor (down 19 percent from last season) will be on this list again next year.

    John, I know you’re just a troll, but Elementary is not a flop. Are its ratings mediocre? Absolutely. But it’s against a super-hot show and it has a pathetic lead-in. A lead-in where, apparently, viewers leave and come back at the 10pm hour. It should be doing worse.

    Elementary will do well in syndication. CBS owns the show. It’s not expensive compared to many other CBS shows–small cast and NYC location. The huge DVR lifts show the show has an audience–they just have to find away to either monetize C3 and C7 better, or they need to get people to watch live.

    Elementary has many, many intangibles going for it that would bump things in their favor against another CBS bubble show. They haven’t even attempted to move it to find some of that DVR audience yet.

    Also, it gets a ton of critical praise, so it’s not the crappy Sherlock ripoff you were hoping for, and I’m sure that bothers you.

    “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!!”

    If it doesn’t matter to you, then why even bring it up? Yeah, right. *eyeroll*

    By the way, no one doubted that TVD would go up this week. The problem last week was your fellow crazies couldn’t handle not being on top and lashed out at SPN.

    “Back at the top where it belongs!!”

    It’s not hard see how your bunch has melodramatic meltdowns over nothing.

    Ratings are doing well for TVD. A lot of people told me don’t give up on it. This season is so much better than last. So I decided to catch up. Yes it’s marginally better than last season. That’s not hard to accomplish though. I think I stayed with the show because I wanted to see the brothers relationship rebuild. Instead though they turned Damon even more selfish and ungrateful. He’s a terrible brother. Stefan was willing to sacrife everything for him and yet Damon wont give up anything for him. Damon would be happy if Stefan died so he could keep Elena. They destroyed what I loved about the show originally. The aspect of families whether by blood or the ones you created. Now I’m not sure what I’m suppose to be watching for other than Damon/Elena porn.

  • Valentin

    @CrimTV, you’re so right about The Crazy Ones!
    But CBS won’t switch both shows :(
    But I hope they will see that The Crazy Ones can do so much better

  • Melissa

    Hopefully Reign increases next week. I look forward to each episode.

  • Maya

    @Beth: yeah, steadily LOW. It deserved to get cancelled.

  • Mark Drei

    CBS wins the 8th night of sweeps. I see this as the biggest story here. The first whole week of sweeps was won by either NBC or ABC, the 3rd and 4th rated networks. CBS will win the best of the Thursdays and maybe Tuesday if the Voice keeps declining. I cannot see a situation where FOX wins a single night of sweeps. Even on Saturday, they always have the lower rated game.

  • Avery

    Wow CW, please remove Reign from that slot, what a waste!

  • joy

    Steven,I agree with you!!

  • Samunto


    Somehow i never get through with BARB. I’m probably doing sth wrong.


    That Panel with Cheryl, Simon, Danny & Simon was the best. It was Must-See TV! The question is whether they can rework the magic again.
    Nicole has been pretty clear on leaving but who knows. Not watching this year but loved her last year with ‘Charmaine’! Danni’s back on ITV in Dec with a Boyzone special.

    And for sure XF UK will be back next year. As usual the contracts issue will be allover Digital Spy, and the rest.

  • Skylar James

    The CW should move Reign to Fridays and put one of the midseason shows there, clearly Reign isnt working in that slot.

  • Ashton


    The CW has lower ratings than other networks, so 0.6 isn’t bad.


    Reign is a great show. Have you ever watched an episode? Don’t judge unless you know what your talking about.

  • KJ

    ABC should put a new reality show at 8pm, OUATIW is dead.

    lol at Reign. Terrible.

  • david

    Wow the CW beat Fox and ABC at 8 last night. XFactor is crashing the past 2 weeks. It needs to be canciled for the sake of Fox. People must be tired of xfactor now.

  • Samunto

    Does anyone think TAAHM would do better at 9pm out of fellow multicam and ‘crazy’ would still do good at 9:30?
    Same with a switch of Sean and MJF?

    Not sure the mixing of Multi- & Single cams is working. Me thinks CBS will try the switcheroo latest mid-season.
