The After the Rose post-mortem (8.33 mil/2.5) similarly slipped 6 and 19 percent year-over-year, yet with double the numbers of any Mistresses episode put a dent in CBS’ Under the Dome, which with 10.2 mil and a 2.5 was down 11 percent. (Note: CBS is estimating that the ongoing Time Warner Cable blackout in some markets is impacting numbers by an average of 1 percent.)

    Really been liking Get Out Alive. Wish it would get better ratings. But hopefully for a summer show on NBC it gets picked up for a second season.

    I stopped watching The Bachelorette in the middle of this season (I actually thought it ended last week). I guess I’ve started to grow up. :)

    Bachelor and Bachelorette are GARBAGE! These shows feature desperate people who are willing to sacrifice their dignity to be watched by pathetic people and end up in relationships that apparently never work out. Who watches this trash?
