    But…but…what about all those comic book fans who yelled and screamed about how Arrow was going to fail now that they killed off the Black Canary? It’s almost like they didn’t follow through on their promise to quit the show or something…

      …and it was barely good then. If we’re all honest with each other, we’re only watching for Cookie and her antics. Otherwise ZZZZzzzzzzzz

    I know The Middle ticked down but it is still doing well for an older show especially going up against Survivor which will never end the way they are going. I was expecting Empire to rise higher without much competition but at least it stayed steady.

    Good news about Arrow. I’d barely seen any promo on TV after 3 weeks hiatus so I thought ratings would be lower. Good news. :)

    I am so upset with Nashville. The story with Maddie sucks. What the writers are doing with Avery and Layla, makes me really angry.

    I find it disappointing that “Modern Family” will not be having 24 episodes this season (like all of its previous six seasons), and will have the order for its current seventh season stay at 22 episodes. The current seasons of “The Middle”, “The Goldbergs”, “Black-Ish”, and “Fresh Off the Boat” all get to have 24 episodes.
