  • chicco

    Not Reign !!!!!
    This show is really good and i’ve never been a pathetic fan before , but this show deserve a chance


    congrats to parenthood, it beat a rerun by.1 and lost in total viewers by 3.5 million lol

  • JJA

    Reign is still getting renewed. Don’t worry about that!

  • Maximillian

    Sucks about Reign!

  • Shepherd

    At least TVD can say it beat TO this week.

    Both episodes of BBT adjusted up, 3 of 5 8pm shows adjusted up as well.

  • Nick.

    Rake still got a 1.7. It’s a shame. It will need a miracle now.

  • Ultima

    this show deserve a chance

    Reign is airing a full season behind the highest rated show on the network; how is it not getting a chance?

  • Maximillian

    BBT repeat hitting 3.0 and almost 13M viewers is massive

  • robin

    Yes great for TVD only three CW shows have reached 100 episodes Gossip Girl, 90210, and now TVD which will probably be the last too.
    Gossip girl 100th episode 1.39M viewers and a 0.7 18-49
    90210 0.99M viewers and 0.5 18-49
    TVD 2.72M viewers and 1.2 18-49 proving that it is the only truly successful show on the network has produced

  • Chris

    It’s big, heavily promoted 100th barely beat TO by a tenth. I like both shows but that’s not really a big deal

  • Sam

    hahahahaha TVD beating NBC. Made my day.

  • Nancy

    I enjoyed RAKE very much. I will be back next week. Greg Kinnear is fun to watch! It is NOT like HOUSE, however. :)

  • Bluebells

    Damn, I swear someone is rooting for Reign’s downfall, lol.

  • +1

    The only good thing about TVD is Katherine. As such, The Originals is superior to TVD. Such a shame for Reign, it’s also quite better than TVD lately. :(

  • Draco

    I honestly don’t get what people see in VD. It hasn’t been great this season. Oh well.

  • tedtalks

    TVD 3rd place, poor NBC, ABC


    AI adjusted up but so were both airings of TBBT-R (Ha! Ha!)

    Go CBS!

  • tedtalks

    Reign isn’t doing much better than Tomorrow People with a better leadin…so much for People’s Choice award…both disappointments for CW
