    Nashville rose because I am sure there were many people like be that watched it at its regular time as Chicago PD was not on.

    I love how Survivor wins the night in the demo and comes in second in total viewers, yet TVline still somehow is still able to make it seem like they didn’t do well

    • Patrick says:

      Reality TV doesn’t need to do well. It needs to be a monster. Because there is no resale value. Supernatural runs 4 eps a day on TNT, and sells well all over the world. Reality TV gets watched once. Survivor has some international appeal, but not that much. Music reality shows get watched 1 time, and 1 time only. If they don’t garner numbers large enough to generate huge ad sales, they can be far less profitable than even a modestly rated scripted show.

      • Billy says:

        You obviously don’t know all your facts because the U.S. version of Survivor is shown in over 150 countries and Amazon currently sells Dvds of the past seasons. So according to your criteria it doesn’t need to be a monster to stay on the air it just needs to be competitive, which it more than is because it has been winning it’s time slot (or the night) for years. Also while most television shows as old as Survivor have been in ratings nosedives in recent years Survivor had been consistent in their ratings over the past 5 years only. With all that, and low production costs, Survivor is probably way more profitable than most of CBS’ other shows.

    Not Happy with my shows last night.
    Arrow relied too heavily on Ray, and not happy with two of the characters fates were left at the end of the episode.
    Survivor ratings will now plummet with the latest castaway being voted out in my opinion. This is not a great season.

    • dan says:

      I don’t think Survivor’s numbers will plummet, but I am sorry about who was voted out last night. Hopefully there will be some backstabbing and blindsides soon to make the last few episodes of the season more exciting. Otherwise, I probably won’t be happy with the final three.

    Supernatural was fantastic! Great episode with awesome brother moments.

    Even though Survivor was down they still won night in demo number, no matter what that number was. Idol was up in viewers but demo was terrible. Nobody’s numbers are as good as they used to be

    Criminals mines: sorry to say that Jennifer Love-Hewit did not add to this show.
    She is no longer that beautiful woman she was in The Clints list.
    Taking into consideration she is older and pregnant, she looks tired, circles under her eyes. Can’t make up help with that?
    She is not this sweet perky, venerable woman she has played in the past.
    Recently, I have watched all the Ghost Whisperer episodes. Great show, just bad story board. Way too many storylines introduced with no follow up.
    I would like to see this show make a comeback. Just need better continuous story.
    Not sure if she will make it on CM. not found of her worn out, nonenergenic roll.
