  1. Wow, that repeat of The Great Indoors did better than its last two original airings on Monday nights.

    • Power of the lead-in.

      That’s why you need to take it into account (and why network PR never does!)

  2. Truly awful numbers for the ABC and CW season finales…

    All, except Grey’s beaten by a BBT re-run…

    • Now that I think about it This is Us against Scandal may be a good move since Shondaland has sprung a leak and NBC wants to try to get one up on them with Scandal departing soon

  3. The Blacklist season finale for 2 hours “Mr. Kaplan” was superb. One of the best finales in a while. The last half of this season has been outstanding. This isn’t an 8PM show so I don’t know what NBC is thinking. Hell, one moment had Mr. Kaplan surgically removing an eye! I liked her character.
