    If CBS want TCO to survive they need to save it somehow! Awful to see it’s ratings so low :(


    matthew perry to write produce and star as Oscar Madison on cbs new odd couple. will be a multi cam if that matters

  • Sebas P

    Go Grey’s and Scandal, sorry for OUAT in Wonderland. It should had been up.

  • sleepy

    Nice that greys and scandal held up. Is cbs still the winner?

  • Fabio – BR

    Damn…TCO was amazing last night…the cast has such a great chemistry idk why they have Millers after BBT instead of TCO…stupid CBS

  • Matt M.

    Scandal at a 10 SHARE!! Great night for ABC! Greys and Scandal win both of their hours in both total viewers and the demo.

    LOL at CBS. 3 shows under a 2.0 on Thursday night. Ouch.

  • CrimTV


    Agreed, TCO should’ve always been behind TBBT

  • Nathan

    Scandal :D

  • Mathew

    Why does everyone think the crazy ones is better than the millers. The millers is actually funny. The crazy ones is so boring! I will admit mom is better than both.

  • CBSviewer

    @ CrimTV

    100% agreed. CBS needs to move The Crazy Ones to 8:30 and The Millers to 9:30.

  • epidrone

    Is that a series low for 2.5 Men? Awful lead in for Elementary. I wish POI would have stuck in place.

  • Me

    TVD was the sole winner of the adjustments. Those CBS preemptions were expected and OUAT in Wonderland is such a joke. Its parent show sucks too. Who thought it would be a good idea? They should learn a thing or two about the Originals and how to make a spin-off superior to its “original” show :D
    Also, Reign rose in viewers! wow… great show btw but I’ll take TTP over Reign any day.

  • IP

    YAY TVD!! Still number 1 on CW. So shut your mouths arrow people saying that its the new number one rated show on the network. Even if it didn’t adjust up TVD’s average is still better than arrows.

    So much for those big ratings for Scandal. It only increased 2 tenths from last week. Some were expecting it to beat Modern Family lmao. I will say the 18-34 ratings are decent but not all that impressed considering the massive hype and promotion it gets, those are ratings it should be pulling. Great rebound from last week for Grey’s more than tripling its lead-in. OUATIW should just not even come back.

    Horrible ratings for The Crazy Ones. What a big failure this show is. The Millers is a big failure as well losing almost half its lead-in. CBS is a mess with sitcoms compared to a couple of years ago.

  • Justin

    Even adjusted up, TVD is the lowest rated program.

    @CrimTV It’s pretty obvious now that Non-Laugh Track/Live Audience shows fail on CBS. This, We Are Men, and probably more I can’t care to remember.

  • Matt M.

    Scandal is once again #1 broadcast drama of the week. :D

  • Simon

    No comment from rob and his delusional Scandal posts? LOL! The Big Bang Theory is still bloody huge even with downward adjustments! Surprised CBS hasn’t renewed it yet.

  • Me

    Actually, Arrow won this week solely by its total audience. But TVD still wins because it draws a younger crowd which are advertisers’ wet dreams.

  • david

    Good to see TVD up to eie Arrow this week.

  • Dave

    So this week The Mentalist on a Sunday beats Elementary in the demo and by nearly 1 million viewers, even though i watch both shows the decision last season to move the Mentalist to Sunday and put Elementary in its slot has continually been shown to be a bad one, surely Elementary’s chances of renewal will be in doubt if this continues.
