    Hopefully AOS can do better then 2 million and .7 on fridays if comes back lower that will be a disaster. It’s already making CW live ratings

  2. MiaB says:

    Surprised The Flash didn’t get a bump last night. Maybe for the season finale.

  3. Billy meacham says:

    Chicago Fire was really on fire last night. I’ll see myself out.

  4. ChicagoDan says:

    Missing the big story here: NCIS finale down from 2.6 last year.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      When every show in the #PeakTV era cannot possibly maintain its finale rating year-to-year, it ceases being expected, it ceases being news.

  5. John Moberly says:

    The writing for NCIS has not been its usual stellar product.Plus they tried to add too many new agents when only one would have sufficed.Get the woman who plays Borin and put her in the slot that Tony held down.

    I cannot believe the key people on Chicago Fire are all going to die in that fire! I suspected Mouch would end up getting killed, but not all the others! And if Herman had just picked Mouch up and carried him right out when he collapsed instead of losing so much safety time trying CPR and trying to get him to revive, they would have made it out. Chief Bowden even yelled at Herman to just carry Mouch out. I’m guessing Casey dies, because he wouldn’t have removed his mask if he thought he had a chance. He wouldn’t have said goodbye to Gabby. I was upset and couldn’t sleep just thinking about it, and I know it’s a TV show, but it’s one of my faves.

    Flash didn’t adjust up. .9 is fair as the ep just rehashed everything except for Snart & King Shark & even they can only do so much against so much made up angst. Yesterday’s AoS & Prison Break were trending like crazy. Will be interesting to see if Flash’s finale does the same next week.
