    Fresh Off the Boat isn’t DOA?! That’s good! Where ABC makes room for it though will be interesting.

  4. Aimee says:

    So happy for Fresh Off the Boat!

  5. Network says:

    Sure would be nice for Fresh Off the Boat to get some help even though it looks like it is doing well on it’s own. The middle has to be heading towards an ending in another season or so. Maybe it can move to Tuesday and the goldbergs can move into the main 8pm spot.

  6. Ray says:

    Haven’t watched Fresh Off the Boat yet (I’m saving up eps on the DVR), but I’m thrilled its doing well for ABC. Those numbers would be much better if it was on Tuesday, but ABC better be kind to this one!

    I love Fresh Off the Boat. Constance Wu is everything.

  8. kmw says:

    Interesting night what with most of CBS down, FOTB did well, and for once FOX had a good Tuesday night. Good that Chicago Fire was steady but NBC is struggling(without their SNF, Super Bowl, SNL special and The Voice they would be even worse off) Also good for POI for staying steady, especially with the NCIS shows being down

    That scene with Jessica watching the Nightly News on the couch was really funny. And Mindy, “I have great credit, I have 25 credit cards!”

  10. Gerald says:

    Agent Carter was so good last night. Ratings are not bad, hopefully good enough for a 2nd season.
    I also really enjoyed Flash and Supernatural.
    I wonder how ratings will do on Supernatural when it moves to Wednesdays when it returns in March.

  11. Jared says:

    Fresh of the Boat seems to have a ton of buzz right now which is somewhat surprising considering mid season comedies(or new comedies in general) never seem to see a S2.

  12. I really like Fresh Off the Boat. I’m glad the numbers are up. I was concerned with it going up against The Flash & NCIS (thank goodness for DVRs that record up to 5 shows at a time LOL)

    Like that?! Do You Like That? No?! Well girls don’t like that either! No means No! Respect Girls! Nightly News!

  14. Alice says:

    “No Evan, this stuffed animal belongs to Grandma now. That’s poker.” I love Fresh Off the Boat

  15. Kelly Collins says:

    Fresh off the boat is so funny!

  16. Hannah says:

    Yay for Fresh Off the Boat! Great show.

  17. DavidSask says:

    Repeat After Me is such a lazy programming decision hope it dies fast! PS. Wendy WIlliams did similar show first on Oxygen! It will be interesting what NBC does for this night next year as is fail currently! Fresh Off The Boat is great don’t F’ this up ABC!!!

    I’m really going to miss Agent Carter, but I’ll start watching Fresh Off The Boat on hulu (my Tuesdays at 8 belong to The Flash). I’ve learned from Blackish not to get too hung up on titles.
