    Yay for Reign’s 0.7 :)

  • AlanHalliwell

    No glee :(

    Reign still stable though week to week.

    My 2 favourtie shows Glee and Parks and Rec have hit lows this season :(

  • Matt M.

    Is that a multi-week high in total viewers for Greys? I think it is, actually. And good for it for topping its hour across all demos and total viewers.

  • Melissa

    Grey’s Anatomy is doing fine. Its season ten average is only 7% below its season nine average so far.

  • Joana

    ABC should be happy Grey’s has no real competition to speak of.

  • Matt M.

    Nice viewership adjustment for Scandal. Still pretty good for Reign, too.

  • ver

    Reign 0.7 is still more than TTP 0.6! Go reign!!!

  • Markitos

    Yay for Grey’s :D

  • Dave

    Reign stable! And it’s audience went up again!

    This show is really good, glad it’s performing descent.

  • Charmed

    Reign steady week to week, and up in total viewers :D


    halcapone so much for elementary adjusting down

  • JaneDoe24

    Good for Scandal. Glad to see Greys adjust up. I’ve only seen a couple of episodes of Reign but I think I like it. I need to catch up though.

  • Tea

    Yay for Grey’s

  • Oliver


    Pre-emptions and shows not starting/ending exactly on time.

  • Brandy

    Yay Reign 0.7!Beat TTP again

  • rob60990

    Scandal still below a 3.0 I see despite massive hype about Olivia’s mother being alive. It couldn’t even fully dominate its cushy timeslot losing to Elementary in viewers. Good for Grey’s though almost tripling its lead-in and winning the hour.

    The Millers is still underperforming.

    lmao at NBC. How embarrassing. Parenthood is doing as well as it could.

  • l_o_13

    reign numbers are very greate and better than the tomorrow people

  • TV God

    I still love SSTW. Hopefully TVLand will pick it up.

  • 18-49 Demo

    CBS #1

    CBS is a true beat best channel all of that without sports

  • Zilla-rilla

    Reign is inching up further and further every week :-)
    At the start of the season I thought TTP would be a lock over Reign, but quality wise, Reign is definitely earning the renewal at this point (if it comes down to the two shows).
