    Lol at John A, so you have now become a TTP fan? I never heard you calling TTP a loser when it scored all those 0.5s, give me a break.

  • John A

    @Bluebell I agree that TVD sucked last night so that dont offend me lol.

  • John A

    No dont like TTP but even that flop beat Reign.

  • sam

    im a huge fan of TVD yet it should be declining in ratings because storylines have been poor this season… but reign is really good it should have higher ratings

    heres hoping for reign and TTP renewal come may

  • Katie

    Oh look TTP beat Reign this week…..for once.

  • Timmy G

    @verus, if both midseason shows completely flop, and the cw decides to renew 7 shows, then yes, both could return. It’s actually not that much of a stretch to consider that. It’s highly doubtful though neither will return unless the network decides to completely clear house.

  • John A

    All that promotion and network love and thats all Reign can do. It should have been moved like TTP. A waste of a good timeslot.

  • Bluebells

    LOL, its only this one time, both shows have about 11 more episodes to go. I am honestly more concerned for TTP and star crossed at this point. I’m not surprised reign’s ratings went down today,most fans were unhappy about the fact that Francis wasn’t in this episode, lol. Soon the TTP fans will come out to play and rub it in our faces, but we all know who will win at the end :)

  • cc

    Glad to see The Millers down and TAAHM up.

  • Bluebells

    @John A
    That flop beat reign for once in a long time, also people tend to forget that reign was the first flop not ttp. So if any show was expected to do better its ttp.

  • Victor Hugo

    That`s not good for Reign… CW must be dissapointed with Reign.. if Star Crossed ou The 100 goes well… so goodbye

  • John A

    CBS ratings are hilarious. 5.2 at 8pm and down to a 1.9 at 9pm. Just how bad are The Millers and TCD?

  • CookyMonzta

    Idol slowly losing total viewership, under 12 million before the end of January, but bravo for avoiding the 2s before February.

  • Bluebells

    I think reign fans are not as loyal as they thought, lol. But we’ll see how things play out on May 15, anything can happen.

  • Timmy G

    @Bluebells I said from the beginning I would fight this war till the end and I’m staying with that, ha! So of course I’m going to celebrate this week for TTP. But I’m also a realist about it’s prospects and right now it’s still very much a bubble show. Either way my support won’t waiver!

  • HalCapone

    After 8:30, it’s all downhill for CBS. The Crazy Ones was even beaten by the long in the tooth, 2-1/2 Men. If (but more like when) CBS moves The Millers next season, I think it will be lucky to earn mid 1 ratings. I’m guessing both Mom and Crazy will not live to see sophomore seasons.

  • ToXiX

    CBS should have never cancelled Gary Unmarried.

  • Bluebells

    @Timmy G
    Lol! Fight this war to the end, you make it sound like a f****** chore.

  • Alan

    Woo TVD!

  • Mon

    Nice to see The Millers down too! I hate it when networks play favorites
