A bad night for TGW, but a great night for OUAT! I'm positive TGW will get a 5th season, seeing as CBS would want syndication purposes. Not to mention, seeing as TGW is on Sunday, it's understandable why it'd get those numbers.


yay OUAT and revenge!! both had great episodes last night


was told last night The Mentalist is getting the a few weeks ago THE GOOD WIFE could end up on the chopping block as surprise here Look what CBS did to CSI Miami....... Nobody is to blame for this but GREEDY ASS CBS who are only worried about the millions they rake in from ad revenue from STUPID FOOTBALL!!!!


It's bad for the Mentalist, too. That's a bad move from CBS, this show was garnering 12-13 millions viewers last year...
