Expect the vampire diaries numbers not too do so well tomorrow either. Because the we are going to get block out again for the thursday night football game giants vs. bears.


It is not a fair way to judge Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast. Because it was blocked out for Monday night football on the east coast. A lot of people including my self have to want online, CWTv App or wait until Saturday. I don't why they put that number up if half the country wasn't able to watch even if they wanted too.


Go NBC. They definitely have the lead with such a strong selection.. I mean, it's The Voice and The Blacklist after all! Nothing can go up against THAT.


I hope that the reduced numbers for the CW have to do with the football blackout preventing fans in New York from watching last night. I would have watched Hart of Dixie live if I could have but instead I have to watch it on Saturday or watch online. How much can New Yorkers represent their viewing audience?


They say the CBS comedies are not doing well on Monday night. Maybe it is because they are all vulgar and you can’t watch them with the whole family!?!?!


Yes...But keep in mind that the CW has a huge demographic that watch their shows on their computers, I Pads and I phones. Plus both CW shows were pre-empted for local football in NY. New York has a very large market share.


Consider canceling Heart of Dixie. Consider Renewing Bones, Castle and Hostages.

WOW I can not believe the numbers for HOD and BATB.
Will the CW regret shows they cancelled and kept? Looking back, Secret Circle, Ringer and even Life Unexpected NEVER did that bad. I know the CW shows usually have 2-3 million but 1.1 is awful!
