    these were the best three shows of the night (only ones i watch) besides the fosters! which i hope did well

  • Harry Ballsachs

    What about the #1 hit new show Intelligence. ..rofl

  • TV Viewer

    Intelligence’s ratings fell fast and into the deep, just like the actors’ dive out of the building into the water on last night’s episode.

  • Michael1

    I think I’ve discovered CBS’s formula for a comedy.
    1) Take a random actor/actress from a show tha NBC renewed.
    2) Find a relative of that actor/actress and give them their own sitcom.
    3) Watch the ratings pour in.

    Mom – Chris Pratt’s wife and Rob Cordray’s brother
    The Millers – Amy Poehler’s Ex-husband
    How I Met Your Mother – Taran Killam’s wife
    The Big Bang Theory – Melissa Gilbert’s sister

    Nick Offerman’s wife is available. Just saying…

    MOM is seriously such a funny show. Anna Faris does such a great job. Glad to see it doing well.

  • Tom R

    This show, the writers, CBS itself, all boring. I know everyone talks about the vulgarity of it. I and many people I know tried to watch it. We gave it a chance. It hasn’t risen to the level where I care to get mad about it. It’s just not funny. It’s not Howard Stern. It’s just uninteresting.
