    Nashville did perfrorm a lot below average (too bad cause the concert was great) but it performed a lot ABOVE average in records sales. Right now it dominates itunes charts. Really hope next week, when they’ll (FINALLY) be an actual episode it will perform better and even above average so that ABC will do the right thing and renew Nashville

  2. MisterGrimmster says:

    Terrible for Arrow. Hope it adjusts up. And farewell TTP, The 100 will most likely be renewed.

  3. sarah says:

    Arrow was so good!
    I also enjoyed Modern Family and the Nashville special

  4. Kim says:

    Arrow was amazing. Great episode.

  5. Katherine215 says:

    That is great news for The 100! Even if it gets adjusted down, it’s still retaining a lot of its lead-in (and what the heck is going on with Arrow??).

  6. Elyse says:

    the 100 was awesome last night! loved seeing more about the grounders :) glad it’s up!

  7. DJR says:

    The Modern Family “Australia” episode was terrible. The only funny item was the running gag about Phil being hurt by Australia’s wildlife. The writer’s missed an opportunity for some funny scenes about driving on the left side of the road.

  8. Britt: Happy May Sweeps!!!! says:

    People are missing out on Arrow! It was amazing. Glad to hear The 100 is doing pretty well too.

    I am so loving American Idol this year. Sure, some of the contestants were not up to regular standards for getting in the top 15 or so, but the looseness of the show, the fun the judges have. The contestants seem more at ease. Now if next year they get major contestants outside of the 3 that really have talent, the ratings will be even bigger.

      Not gonna happen. AI has started a free fall due to it’s age and its more likely to fall even more next year. It had a great run but those days of amazing ratings are over.

      • Ben says:

        The days of amazing ratings are pretty much over for network TV full stop. The Voice is sliding down the tree quite quickly too, as are the NCIS shows… only a couple of comedies seem to be surviving with more than a 2.5 these days.

    • Jerry says:

      I thought it’s the blatant playing of favourites during the last few seasons that turned people off. I miss those days during the early seasons where even the hot favourites got criticized on a performance-to-performance basis.

    Arrow was super great last night. Each week is becomming more exciting and for me heart stopping, especially when Slade is in the scene. Modern Family was good, but I wished they had at least a part 2, for their Australia Trip. So much more of this trip could have been added to this show but it seems like they left out a lot of sightseeing they could have been quite funny. It felt to rushed and compact. Australia definitely should have been awarded something much longer then one 30 minute episode.

    I’m not sure what I think of The 100 yet… I don’t feel invested in any of the characters and it’s slightly on the boring side most weeks. I understand the need to fill in the backstory and such but it doesn’t seem to move at an exciting pace. I want to like it but it’s very “meh” at the moment.

  12. holly says:

    I have really enjoyed The 100! I am hoping it gets renewed. I don’t have the CW in my cable package (Canada) but its on our Netflix.
