    I was hoping Private Practice kept at least 9 million but 8 will do for me I just hope it dont drop back to 7 million,7 million is a safe place but it's no 9 or 10 million and PP used to make 9 pr 10 million.This season by far is the best and should not have lower rating then 9 million.


    Booo! Wi did more ppl tune in for the mentalist? Do they not get how private is more better... I read on Twitter that in two of the most important age groups PP held the greatest viewership... Hmmm...
