HA @ BATB! Cancelation is coming it's way...


Good for Scandal! It's one of the most underrated shows on tv, glad to see people are starting to notice how good it is. Emmy nods wouldn't hurt to get the exposure they deserve. I don't agree with Mrs alex o'loughlin about Grey's, it used to do a lot better until a few episodes ago. This is one of their lowest ratings.


I am so happy more folks I realizing just how awesome Scandal is.


TVD went down two weeks straight. It lower than last week's ratings.


Wow the Vampire Diaries did good, well at least in my opinion!
Great to see Greys and POI did well.
