    Was there anything on last night that could possibly have inflated the preliminary ratings? :-) :razz:

  • Theresa

    CBS wants to get that press out ASAP before the final number are in! ;)

  • Douglas from Brazil

    @AllOfHerTw!st,

    yes, NFL playoff overrun which aired until 8pm.

  • AdWhois

    I mean CBS did have the highest rated (of this week) NFL playoff game right before…
    Also, will this change your “cancellation predicted” status for The Good Wife?

  • THE OLD MAN

    This just may well be irrational exuberance until the finals

  • DenverDean

    Wait, CBS didn’t use any excuses or whining about the Golden Globes. Waiting for ABC’s excuse ridden PR and probably an NBC one with “NFL -inflated,” blah, blah, blah. Credit CBS for always focusing on its results and no B S excuses.

  • Miles R.

    The Good Wife is on fire this season. Last nights episode was incredible!

  • Gabriel

    TGW won’t be cancelled this season, that’s for sure

  • Jami

    @ALLOFHERTWIST
    I was going to say the same thing. LOL

  • THE OLD MAN

    LONG LIVE THE GOOD WIFE

  • j

    Still mediocre.
    Maybe more mediocre for TGW given its crap retention.
