    Now it seems Almost Human may help The Following upon returning if its ratings stay as they were two weeks ago. I never thought I would see The Following dropping that much from its Sunday premiere

  • HeadlessHorseman

    Is that right? Are the HOD, The Bachelor, and The Following viewer totals completely unchanged from the prelims?

  • bjssp

    Maybe there’s life in Intelligence. I haven’t seen it, so I can’t speak to it’s quality, but if it can demonstrate some growth, perhaps it’ll get another season.

    More importantly, I think these numbers indicate TB is a legitimate hit. Not the biggest show in the world, but definitely super solid and capable of anchoring a night. Let’s hope that it goes back up once TV returns and finishes out the season strong. Let’s also hope NBC is smart and will use the summer to help the show find even more viewers.

    Also still, while CBS probably isn’t panicking over Mondays, it has to be worried. That’s why I think there’s an opening for another network to air comedies on the night. I think it was true this season, even with HIMYM, but especially next season, when it’s over.

    Go cbs comedies! !

  • Refrain

    Pretty amazing for 2 Broke Girls, breaking 10 million viewers. Been a while. It has been almost a year since it rated over 10 million.

  • don juan

    Great numbers for the cbs comedies! So happy. What in the heck happened with the following? Blacklist is showing it can stand on its own without the voice.

  • j

    Well, the 3rd Blacklist without The Voice is doing better than the 3rd Revolution with The Voice after the winter break. That’s good.

    Yes, a 2.5 is indeed a solid hit for any network, esp at 10 o’clock.

  • Matt

    Great for CBS-

    HIMYM 3.8 and 10.8 mil
    2BG at a 3.0 and over 10 mil
    and Mom at 9.58 mil

    Great shows!

  • Lasko6

    Wow amazing for CBS comedies! Keep it up! :)

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    It’s Following CBS in the ratings. That 2.4 for the Sleepy Hollow finale is looking even more peachy today. (except to jenna)


    GO CBS!!

  • Joel

    LOVED HIMYM last night. Well deserved.

  • Nick

    To be fair, the Sunday premiere of the Following was really boring so I understand why a lot if people may have been turned off. Last night’s episode was better so hopefully it will rise next week. Still an awful drop, though.

    Anyway,excellent for 2BG hitting 10mil this season, great for Mom too.

  • Nick

    B&TB is going to fall apart when it moves to Friday’s. I can see it hitting 0.1’s, especially if all of its current audience doesn’t move with it (which is more than likely) and the Friday factor.

  • Michael

    Go The Blacklist!

  • Anthony


    Who said B&TB was moving to Friday?

  • rob60990

    People getting tired of The Following lol.

  • iSayso

    WOW! After nine seasons and so many torturous episodes, dumbass Ted settles for a Lily clone.

  • TT

    @Nick, I didn’t know they were moving to Friday but I hope they do. Start the week off with fresh, new shows. HoD and BaTB both need to move. Though I wouldn’t count on their fans not following. They are a loyal bunch.
