    This season of Survivor is really becoming one of my favorites. These people and their game play are really entertaining.

    then comes LEGEND!

    • Chris says:

      Legends will pull between .9-1.1, I didn’t think arrow would benefit that much from the crossover I thought it would do 1 or 1.1 at best

    Good for DS that it rose a little. No surprise about Dolly Parton, even down they are still good numbers . FOX still owns Wed but Empire is slipping and it is not going to get any easier what with Hairspray next week and a long layoff

    I was right on the money with my Arrow predictions. 3.5 and 1.3 was exactly what I had said yesterday. Legends will probably be like at 3.3 and 1.2. The DC crossover has worked big for the all the shows.

    Watching Oliver hug his parent and Laurel good bye was HEARTBREAKING!

    It is nice for the Cw, I guess, in the ratings it is seeing for the crossover. Personally however, if they do it more often I quit watch Supergirl, the only one of the 4 I watch

    Glad that Arrow rebounded so well. Hopefully this will give it a decent boost overall because I think this has been one of its strongest seasons in a while (new “team” aside).
    Also, Lethal Weapon is just consistently good. I love that show. Probably one of my new favorites.

    Great news for The 100th ep of Arrow and THE CW this week with the crossover. Looking forwar to tonight’s LoT for the climactic ending of the crossover.
