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?
