    I mean I love Revenge, much more than Scandal but come on now, Revenge’s ratings are nothing compared to Scandals. It is a huge success and will last for many years to come, how can someone consistently bash a show which is one of the highest rated on television!

  • John A

    TVD adjusted up to finish No.1 for the week. Lmao at TCO. Another failure show for SMG. Greys came back strong from last week. Still dont get the appeal of Scandal.

  • Andy

    Man CBS goes from 5’s to 1’s in an hour. Love TCO… but it’s done. CBS tried to go off brand with Hostages and TCO and both failed miserably. Still they succeeded with Under The Dome, so I hope they still take risks in the coming years.

    CBS Sitcoms: Big Bang should already be renewed, Millers likely will be renewed, Crazy Ones and 2.5 Men are bubbles in my opinion.

    ABC: Wonderland will be underland by next fall, Greys will depend on salaries, Scandal should be renewed.

    FOX: X Factor should be Xed off by the network when fall is announced.

    NBC: Sing Off might come back, Parks and Rec will get a final season, Sean Saves the World and Michael J. Fox show will both not see Season 2, and Parenthood will depend on how dramas do this spring. Enough hits and the Bravermans will be toast. If only, say, Chicago PD stays strong, then Parenthood will see another year.

    @Matt M.
    [quote]The Blacklist scored a 3.2 with a 3.5 lead-in, however, you praised it. It gets equal amount of hype as Scandal.[/quote]

    That is actually pretty good retention for a show leading-out of a LIVE show with a slight over-run.

  • CrimTV

    If TCO rebounds in 2014 (unlikely) but if it does it has a shot. Unfortunately this could be another one-season show for SMG :( It should have gone to Fox really.

  • Dave


    The day that any show involving Sean Hayes rates above Michael J. Fox is a sad day for television and the entertainment industry.

  • doug

    ringer was so much better than TCO

  • Justin

    I meant in It’s Timeslot!

  • doug

    @Dave why?

  • John

    yay for TVD and Scandal! :D

  • Sarah

    Great for Grey’s Anatomy, I really think that sound of music had a very big impact on them last week. Glad to see that they are back on track. And I know that the 7+ rating is going to be awesome as alway. Because last nights episode was AWESOME.

  • Dillan

    I sort of feel bad for SMG, first Ringer and now this. CBS need to move it to 8.30 asap.

  • Nathan

    Rob must have forgotten that both Scandal and Blacklist increased “only” two tenths for their recent finales.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    That’s you’re excuse every time.

    “Scandal only got that rating because of all the hype.”

    You’re criticizing ABC for implementing a marketing strategy that works?

  • Edward

    Wow, CW’s big hits SPN, Originals, Arrow and TVD are all getting very similar ratings this year.

  • Kelly


    But it’s not the lowest rated in it’s timeslot…Once Upon A Time in Wonderland is a whole 3 demo points beneath it, hence the fact that it’s underneath it in the table. So that makes no sense either…

  • John A

    Oh forgot Arrow got a 1.1. So Arrow and TVD got the same rating.

  • charlie

    Reign still sucks tho :D
