    Happy TTP beat Reign even if it may only be this one time. :) Good for TVD.

  • John A

    TTP beat loser Reign. Glad TVD adjusted up.

    In retrospect, I think The Crazy Ones is in a better position than The Millers retention wise. Big Bang got a 5.2 and The Millers only got a 2.6 out of that? It lost 2.6 and The Crazy Ones only lost 0.7 from The Millers. I would just be interested to see how both The Millers and The Crazy Ones do without The Big Bang Theory (new or repeat) to prop them up. Something tells me they would be about even in the ratings. I don’t think The Millers is as big of a hit as everyone seems to think it is.

    Also, so sad that Reign adjusted down! Really hoping this gets renewed over The Tomorrow People. The acting and storylines are so much better and it’s a nice change of pace from sci-fi/fantasy shows.

  • Sel

    Reign is getting renewed fo sho mark my words!

    @John A
    Reign may be a loser in the ratings but its episode was way better than VD’s.

  • j

    Oh look another 50% drop for The Millers.

  • John A

    I’m a loser so I need to call others what I am

  • Dude

    Reign gets adjusted down and TVD gets adjusted up every week! ugh

  • Bluebells

    People are making fun of reign now, but i am 100% sure that it will be renewed, the thing about other shows is that their ratings fly all over the place but reign remains steady.

  • Steven

    The big Beast is still on top. No one will dethrone that show for quite some time still.

    Taste has to be a goner. Even for a cheap reality show those are horrible Demos. ABC cannot be happy.

    Reign being adjusted down while TVD went up really isn’t helping Reigns cases. It will really be just a case of how well this Mid season premiers do for The CW on whether Reign or TTP will even stand a chance for a second season.

  • Dan

    @Dan W,

    The Millers is produced by CBS, TCO is produced by FOX. Even if they were even in the ratings if CBS only had room for one which one do you think it would be?

    Supernatural number 1º CW

  • Bluebells

    TVD seems to be very overatted while reign is underrated, no matter how crappy a VD episode is, it always adjusts up for some reason. Its fans are freaky loyal.

  • verus

    With 0.6 Reign did worse than the Tomorrow People. Could they cancel or renew both for that matter ?

  • Oliver

    Yikes, The Millers only retained half of TBBT’s ratings.

  • Alex C

    As long as Reign continues to have steady to decent growth. It will do well. Still in better position than TTP

  • Billy

    The Millers 50% retention is awful. Yes, retention does matter to an 8:30 sitcom.
