    @Ashton: a 0.6 is not worth renewing a show, and this is just falltime. Wait til Spring ratings come around, it will fall even further. The CW should just get rid of the failures and try something else. Or do you think Reign would survive next year on Mondays with a floppy lead in? Please…

  • Avery

    @Ashton – yes I have watched, the show sucks, sorry.

  • Ben

    @ Skylar James

    No way should Reign move to Fridays. It’s been steady the last 3 weeks.

  • Lucas Melo

    The Voice elas nota a repeat! That “R” is for Results?!

  • Kelly

    Absolutely amazing that TVD beat X Factor…not sure anyone would have predicted that! This weeks ratings give pretty much absolute proof that the dip for TVD last week was entirely due to Halloween/pre-emption in NY. I know most people realised that anyway, but I did see one or two posts saying that 0.4 drop was huge and it surely couldn’t all be to do with Halloween/pre-emptions. Well, the following week going straight back up to the exact rating it was at before the Halloween dip is pretty much proof that it was. Really pleased for the show, it’s doing amazing. Third at 8PM!

    X Factor…ouch! For a show that requires people to call in and vote, that’s really bad. Glee tying it’s series low is not great, but it’s now actually growing out of it’s lead-in so I guess it’s a plus that it’s not even lower. Wonderland now at sub CW levels, the spin-off just hasn’t worked. It’s a shame, the Once universe is perfect to launch spin-offs from, but Wonderland has tanked.

    Don’t worry SPN fans, TVD will be Inflated by Football soon , you’ll have a CHANCE to beat TVD then and Gloat.



    REVENGE After a muddled second season, ABC’s gleeful guilty pleasure has returned to its soapy firt-season zenith (yes, please!) with steamy hookups, campy cliff hangers & the perpetually icy glare of Madeleine Stowe’s Victoria.



    Homeland, New Girl & Scandal hooked us with fast-paced storytelling–but three seasons in, the rush is starting to fade.

  • KJ

    The Voice was NOT a repeat! Take away the R please

  • Skylar James

    @Ben: so has BATB, doesnt mean its ratings are good. A 0.6, during falltime, and after TVD, is not good.

  • Ram510

    At least Crazy Ones didn’t adjust down. I wish it were higher though, it’s an excellent show


    THE X-Factor is averaging 7.9 million viewers a week

  • Rob R

    Didn’t expect THE VOICE to weaken this much so fast…..beaten decidedly by dreck like “The Millers” last night. Poor NBC is falling apart.

    “Don’t worry SPN fans, TVD will be Inflated by Football soon , you’ll have a CHANCE to beat TVD then and Gloat.”

    Nobody cares about gloating (except TVD crazies) and SPN doesn’t need to beat TVD. The fact that you’re in the mindset that they’re competing is a red flag.

    Also, you’re the same person that called SPN fans “retarded” last week. You can piss off now.

  • Jake

    I guess some people just can’t recognize good tv when they see it. Reign is a good show with excellent writing.

  • Carthy

    Sean saves the World has some potential, though I think it would be a lot better if they hadn’t bothered with the “gay father of a daughter” angle. But the MJF Show is just boring.

  • mark

    yeess!! im so happy for TVD!! this season isn’t great (for me) but its really good and i think it deserves good ratings! and get over the whole competition between fandoms!!my favorite show is TVD,but i also hope supernatural rise next week, because (after 9 season!!) its good, too!!

  • Norma

    I’m glad The Crazy Ones recovered a bit from it’s Halloween drop and didn’t get adjusted down. I wish CBS had kept it at 8:30. It held TBBT’s audience better than The Millers, which obviously NEEDS it’s lead-in (look at it’s INSANE drop after the rerun last week). TCO is a more quirky, intelligent show and it suffers from being sandwiched in between 2 low brow, blue collar sitcoms. (The Millers and 2.5 Men).

  • NDfan

    Hahah supernatural fans LOOK who’s the BEST ? TVD forever ! This season is juste AMAZING ! the best season since the season 2….

  • Brandy

    @Maya HoD & BatB say hello.lol.Both shows doing 0.6 in thie first season in fall and got renewed.Also, Reign is a limited series.So do you Tommorrow Peole should be cancelled too?It gotten 0.6 the last two or three weeks too.You know that nothing works after VD right?Plus,CW has lower ratings/expectations than the big 4.CW also doent just look at ratings, they look at DVr,onine veiweing, international sales much more than one of the big 4.BatB was renewed partly cause it sold well internatinally.HoD was renewed in its first season partly cause itdid well online.
