    Wonderland seems to have stabalised at 0.9…

  • Dillan

    Fantastic that TVD didn’t adjust down! :D

    If Reign continues like this, it will see a 2nd season.

  • Ultima

    2.90 to 2.67 but same 1.3 for TVD
    2.19 to 1.81 0.9 to 0.7 for Reign

    The Vampire Diaries could have adjusted from a 1.34 to a 1.26 (both round to 1.3); Reign could have adjusted from a 0.87 to a 0.74 (resulting in an adjustment from 0.9 to 0.7).

    The game doesn’t start until 8:25pm, so the 9pm show having a bigger downward adjustment is expected.

    CW, please renew TO, TTP & Reign.

    “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.”

    I knew you were coming with that argument. You’re so predictable, Rob, is not even funny. *rolls eyes*

  • epidrone

    Yay, I was afraid Elementary would adjust
    down. Nice two-tenth rise this week. It’s staying afloat despite a horrible lead in and a big competitor.

  • Robin

    I knew TVD wouldn’t adjust down I knew it I knew it I knew it. BEAST

    The Big Beast Theory

    Not So Gleeful

    At least NBC didn’t take any further hits.

    Dang, TVD almost caught The X Non Factor.

  • rob60990

    lol at all this cheering for Reign. It lost almost half of TVD’s demo. It would probably pull .4s at best on its own.

  • milo

    So many awful ratings last night and someone decides the one to complain about is *Scandal*?? That’s one pathetic fanboy.

  • Kissan

    Reign is a pretty good show. Sucks that it adjusted down to 0.7 while TVD didn’t adjust at all. Reign and TVD both come back in two weeks so everybody catch up on Reign on the CW website!

  • Keith

    I’ve said before, I’ll say again.. If you want ROB to stop his trolling, just don’t even acknowledge her! She will thrive off of everyone’s anger towards her. If everyone just totally ignored ROB anytime she posted some trollish rant, she would stop.. But she isn’t going to stop anytime soon, so as long as we have people here that cannot help themselves and just HAVE to reply to a troll…

  • Ultima

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

    But that’s a silly comparison, because obviously the ratings will drop during the spring.

    Season-to-date, based on time, it’s down ~18% year-to-year. Season-to-date, based on episode count, it’s down ~14% year-to-year.

    Grey’s Anatomy is still doing fine, however.

  • Dave


    First SCANDAL and now REIGN? Move on dude.

  • Melissa


    I knew someone would catch on to what I was doing, but whatever. ;)

  • Ronald

    ohhhh Reign still stable week to week it’s a good thing rigth!

  • AllOfHerTw!st


    At least you didn’t mention her. ;-) :-)

  • Michael

    I’m so ready for Hunger Games bingo excuses tomorrow morning!

  • Brandy

    @Garyit’s too early for that and right now TTP & Reign are bubble shows that won’t be decided and announced as cancelled or renewed til late April or May.Also, there’s no way all three of TO,TTP,Reign can all get renewed.With TO,VD,Arrow,SPN ,& HoD certain to be renewed(HoD for syndication) ,they need room for new shows.

  • remi

    LMAO at Big Bang Theory. It’s all downhill from here, It’s gonna get a pity renew through 2020, and then it’s gonna get cancelled for sure!
