30 Rock ratings are making me sad.


i love tbbt!! I'm so happy that its doing so great! Many shows would have a hard time to get this many viewers when a popular show like idol is playing at the same time..


Wow didn't expect the Finder to be that Up in Viewers. I guess the Idol follow up does wonders.
