@mina I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be 12.6 since they ranked it so high. Also criminal minds never gets that low.


I expected more for One Tree Hill with Lucas' return, then again, Peyton wasn't with him. So I can see why.


I can't believe Criminal Minds got only 2mil viewers....What happened?
