Corny joke #1: If only it ended in a Big Bang...


TVD was a great finale and the ratings seem to have been steady. Same with Secret Circle however it had half the viewers TVD did, so for all those people that claim they do not like TVD anymore and always complain about the show, obviously people are watching and it got the early renewal as well, which is only given to shows that do well!
I love Grey’s I also love POI but I record POI as I can not watch them at the same time. POI always seems to lead that hour.
Good and bad news for Awake it had more viewers than last week and I am really enjoying the show and if it was on CBS or ABC it would last, however NBC will cancel it and bring on tons of new Dramas as it has already picked up a few pilots and they will not do well either and thus will be the rollercoaster that is NBC.


Hoped The SC could poll over 1.5! but Noop! Still holding fingers crossed for S2!
With some new Cast additions to attract some girly girls and with the constant well written drama they can raise again! :D
