Great for Mentalist. Easily one of THE best shows on tv right now.
The finder is also holding out okay, I guess. IT has some promise but does not fully use its full potential. TVD should be lower. So far the s3 stroll of episodes has been seriously mediocre. I guess romance-hungry fangirls make the viewership somehow stable for now.

In fact, there were only three shows this week that were kindof bad which were: Gossip Girl, definitely Glee, and maybe a tad of the Vampire Diaries. That said, GG had a good amount of Dair which was pretty good, but left the rest of the characters with nothing to do. As for Glee I thought was a bit of over-hyped with Ricky Martin, but Santana saved that episode for me. And it's nice that the Vampire Diaries is rating so well again despite the fact that it wasn't the best episode. Every other show, including the premiere of Smash, were spectacularly well written.

Yeah with the exception of Vampire Diaries every single CW show has suffered a ratings drop for some reason???. Don't think Secret Circle has any chance of being cancelled though, it's pretty much a lock for a 2nd season IMO

I guess the vampire diaries is no longer helping the secret circle get viewers although tsc is still doing good for the cw

Secret Circle is fine, it's the 2nd highest rated show on the CW although yes it's rating has dropped slightly since after christmas

Secret circle really needs more viewers if they hope to stay on.
