    Sooooo…LUX is beating Gossip Girl, 90210, AND Melrose Place. Two of those 3 have already gotten renewals. I think MP is a gonner. I’m not sure about OTH (don’t watch or keep up with ratings) but LUX has to get renewed!! It’s the best show the CW has beyond Smallville.

    And V gets beat by a rerun??? Not good. Parenthood in 3rd?? Not good either But I still have hope for it.

    Following LOST with V might not have been the best thing ever. I know that after I watch LOST I immediately want to shut the tv off on go call someone up or log in to a community online to talk. I completely forgot to watch Parenthood last week because I did that and the same for V this week, though I remembered after 15 minutes and turned it back on. Oops.

    well didn’t look like any of the 10pm shows did all the hot. so in comparison its really not that bad i think.

  • Josh Emerson

    You have to remember that it’s the demo number, not the overall viewers, that matters. V won the hour and had a 2.9 according to TV By The Numbers. That’s not all that bad. If it can hold those numbers, I think it’ll return.

    Lost loses to a repeat.

  • Gurtegh,
    Does it help any that I’m DVR/PVR’ing it?

    I too hold out hope for PARENTHOOD. I’m lovin’ it!

    I’m actually enjoying Parenthood so far too. The only storyline that is bothering me is the “overworked mommy” sister. I think that one has been overdone on TV and it isn’t that interesting anymore.

    “Lost loses to a repeat.” … NCIS: Los Angeles (R)

    Well, I guess we know what all the old people were watching last night. That is hardly a knock on LOST.
