    NCIS is officially the most-watched show in the world. It actually won an award for it this week.


    I'm not sure if Grey's Anatomy's have improved much, but it's the premiere and they always have higher ratings, much like a finale.
    I look forward to Private Practice airing next week, however, I'm not sure how it's going to go against The Mentalist.


    @Matt, it'd be better if there were no major networks, just a bunch of minor networks and a lot more niche programs would get 5 seasons. If TVD was on a major network it would have been cancelled by now.


    :( The Secret Circle lost 50000 of the TVD viewers. I don't want this show cancelled
    Greys is loosing to the mentalist big time. Charlies angel had a good turnout.... Hmmm....


    Thanks Matt! It's reasuring! It's all I wanted to hear!


    @Superidole: it's normal. The CW has far lower expectations than other networks and VD is the highest rated show on there, by a wide margin.


    The Big Bang cast deserves it! They're great!
    But I am a little worried for VD, is it a normal score and low one? I don't really know the usual ratings but it seems a low, doesn't it?
