    Those Quantico numbers are getting scary. At least they’ve got picked up for a full season already.

    Treehouse of Horror was always the standard for me each season, if they did good with it, I had no worries for the season. Sadly, the last few years have been completely boring and lame, I haven’t gotten much farther into the season after it. Each Halloween I hope they redeem themselves, but it just keeps getting worse. When you can’t recall any of the segments the day after you watch it, you know it was pathetic.

  6. Quantico is losing me a little more every week.

    Last week’s Halloween theme episode of the Simpsons was so much better than this year’s Treehouse of Horror.

  8. Ben says:

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine used to feel like a show that was just clinging on to the edge. Now it’s a 2.0 rating? Save as houses.

    Good for FOX. I knew the Treehouse of Horror would do wonders for them plus football might have helped. Too bad for ABC and especially Blood and Oil. it sure seems done. ABC needs to move Quantico. CBS had good HH numbers like usual but their demo numbers are not good
