    The Big Bang Theory still wins the night !

    Even taking a bit of a punch from that Sound of Music thing TBBT still is the undefeated winner of Thursday nights. Not only did it beat TSOML by 4.8 to 4.3 in its half hour, but it also beat in on the night 4.8 vs. 4.6.

    Please people, stop answering to rob60990 ! Don’t feed the troll ! Don’t give him such importance !

    Oh wait I must have misread never mind lol

  • Sparrow

    Grey’s has just about reached it’s expiration date. It’s about time to end it.

    The Millers is utterly horrible and only being deemed a “success” because it’s piggybacking on TBBT. Throw it on Mondays and see how fast it tanks.

    In my opinion, Mom deserves to be placed in that post TBBT time slot instead.

    You’re posts about Scandal are always hilarious. Please never stop posting.

    Reing was amazing last nigth, next week up up up! go reing

  • HeadlessHorseman

    Third in the hour in total viewers? Really scraping the bottom of the barrel there aren’t you?

  • Ultima

    If the X Factor adjusted up by .1 shouldn’t the table now say it got a demo of 1.1?

    The preliminary rating for The X Factor was a 1.3…

  • reign is sooo good ..what even

  • HeadlessHorseman

    His posts are so delusional that they’re funny. He adds something to the comment section that makes it more fun to read. He’d keep posting even if we didn’t reply to him.

    This happens when ABC is doing bad promoting for Grey’s Anatomy and note showing any Promo for this weeks episode :(

  • Melanie

    @Billy Yeah, TBBT is great to start off the night (still down I believe from its last episode), but after the first half hour, NBC crushed everything from 8:30 to 11:00 with the SOML.
    I think NBC is the winner of this Thursday night.

  • lakersupbyten

    Elementary has been outstanding the last 2 weeks….not surprised it is heading toward the 2s again..with a growing number of viewers. Keep it up guys!!!!

  • Michael

    Go Scandal. Back in the 3.0s. Should go up next week for the Fall finale Feel bad for GA fans.

  • cc

    NBC had it’s brief moment, thinking it beat TBBT. It didn’t. TBBT rules!

  • CBSviewer

    What CBS should do for midseason:

    8:00 – The Big Bang Theory
    8:30 – The Crazy Ones
    9:00 – The Millers
    9:30 – Two and a Half Men
    10:00 – Elementary

    The Crazy Ones would do well after TBBT. The Millers is too lead-in dependant. If it’s Renewed, it will tank next season.

  • Billy


    NBC is the winner over everything but TBBT. Yes, NBC wins the night because TSOML aired the entire night. CBS won 8:00, and would have won the night if it had the luxury NBC had of airing TBBT all night. TBBT remains the undefeated champion of Thursday nights.

    @ Charlie, like you didn’t get excited over TTPs 0.7 in prelims yesterday?Reign still tied TTP.Oh and Reign does better in social media than TTP according to a new list that out the top 25 new shows most popular on social media Reign is # 8,TTP #10.CW also said Reign does very well online in the press release announcing the full season pickups.

  • caster-percy-stydia

    Glee ???? that’s too bad, because the season started awful but the latest episodes have been WAY better than the first ones of this season (I’m talking about quality not ratings)

  • Valentin

    I was thinking something like that
    8:00 – The Big Bang Theory
    8:30 – The Crazy Ones
    9:00 – Two and a Half Men
    9:30 – The Millers
    10:00 – Elementary
