Awake is so much better than Private Practice, it is ridiculous.


The Mentalist is my favorite show -- and this disappoints me: people watched Person of Interest ... and then turned the TV off rather than watch Mentalist?


So a Private Practice rerun did better than Awake? Wow. Go Private Practice! :D


Damn it!




Well its not like the mentalist has increased that much more. People not watching cuz no grey's.
