  • Arrow was great last night. It was like a finale or midseason finale.

  • Count Vertigo is just horrible on Arrow,can see why people might have skipped.TTP was horrible too,waste of a decent bad guy.

    • I agree. Seth Gabel tries to act like the joker and the love triangle on TTP is terrible.

    • I agree. I loved that actor on Fringe but Count Vertigo is too over the top and just looks like a silly caricature.

  • So, is it just me or is Revolution going in a…..I don’t know… weird direction? I’ve been watching the last few weeks just to see if it gets better, but honestly, I think I’m done. Sad because they have a really fabulous cast. Maybe I’m alone in this opinion and that’s fine if I am…just wanted to see if anyone else is as thrown by the direction of the show as I have been.

    • I’m loving Revolution this season :-) I just hate the time slot they put it in.

      • the show has gotten better but it’s still tough sledding…. with its expense, how can it survive past this season???

        • Not sure it will but I’m going to stick with it anyway and see where it goes.

      • I’m loving season way more than season 1. The tone wasn’t dark enough for a dystopian drama. The tone is way darker this season.

  • I stop watching TTP because I’m rooting more for Reign, I hope it comes back this week with another .7 or grows

    Arrow had a great episode last night, it’s still a great show for CW, I think the 100 should be place on wed after arrow and move TTP on Fridays with BATB but it won’t happen, Star Crossed can be put with HOD on Mondays. I just don’t want HOD on Fridays but I can see it going there

    • what the Reign have to do with TTP ?? the come on completely separate nights

      Comment by nate – November 21, 2013 10:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Same network, if TTP fails then Reign might get a season 2 pick up. I watch both shows but if I had to pick it would be TTP :-) I find Reign a bit boring.

      • They’re on the same network, competing for renewal

    • Fernando, unless you are a Nielsen household it doesn’t matter if you watch the show or not. If you stopped because you don’t like the show that’s fine but if you stopped because you thought your might affect the ratings of one over the other then I’m afraid all you are really doing is depriving yourself of some entertainment.

  • Wow, I haven’t watched Arrow yet but I wonder what’s causing these big drops in ratings. And I really like TTP, it is getting interesting.

  • Arrow was great last night. I was expecting a drop from last week thought just because it sounded like they set some kind of series high. So with the drop, does that mean Arrow is back to being more inline with it’s “normal” ratings? Either way… still a good episode. I enjoyed it.

  • Supernatural fell Tuesday night and It was really good. They blamed it on the Gaga special they had on before it but I wonder if something is going on with CW count.

  • I’m glad he took care of count Vertigo. He was terrible. Seth Gabel is no Heath Ledger. He should not try to act like the joker.

  • This season Arrow has been awesome. And, the reveal at the end was so unexpected!

  • CBS has very little competition on this night. Save for MF, what else is there? NBC, please get your sh** together. SVU can no longer promote a night; move it to 10pm, somewhere.

  • Yay for Criminal Minds! Still going strong after all these years.

  • Frankly, I think a lot of fans are getting frustrated with Arrow’s wayward fall into the typical CW melodrama ditch with all this Ollicity nonsense. It started off as a great, action-packed series which was faithful to the comics…this so called romance between Arrow and Felicity exists solely because the tweenie fans are pushing for it. Ridiculous.

  • Love love loved the “Captain” of reveals at the end of Arrow. Made this 40 y/o as giddy as a tween. Lol.
    i’m sure some won’t understand the Capt reference. ;)
    Granted the reveal about Thea…. I saw that coming since Season 1!!!
    No to olicity! Ugh. I like them as friends. Why can’t they just be good friends and confidantes. I like him with Laurel. I actually see the potential there.
