    HH and HOD return to normal status. I predict cancelation for these two.


    What can be determined from this is that only 'feel good' and comedy shows rank in well. Must be the true demographic when everybody needs a good cheer.


    That sucks that Hawaii Five 0 did not get as much viewers as Smash and I hope it dose not hurt the show as I love H50. Usually Castle is #1 and it was actually 3rd....I do not watch Castle but did record Smash and will check it out, however H50 will remain my # 1 show on Mondays
