A Nielsen software error created a disjointed start to the season for the networks and ratings crunchers, but things started to get back to normal this week.
The measurement service on Thursday afternoon issued the complete primetime ratings data for the third week of the TV season (Oct. 6-12) — more than two days later than its usual Tuesday morning release.
The first 17 nights of the TV season were affected by the software glitch that inaccurately credited some shows (mostly on ABC) with the viewing totals of others. Nielsen acknowledged its error late last week and re-issued program averages for premiere week (Sept. 22-28). A bunch of ABC series were revised downward in the updated nationals, while some shows on the competition (including Fox’s new “Gotham” and CBS veteran “The Big Bang Theory”) were revised upward.
Nielsen says data for every night since last Thursday has been accurate, and complete »

Flying. It's something so many people do every day, and therefore, it's the perfect way for Criminal Minds to really get at its fans, as it does in the third episode, "A Thousand Suns." Taking a plane somewhere already puts your life in someone else's hands, but on these flights, the passengers' lives are in the hands of a mass annihilator who wants to play God.
Meanwhile, the premiere introduced a young woman in Kate's care, and fortunately, it doesn't take long for them to answer who she is and what Kate's secret is, and I like how they do it. They don't draw it out, and they don't make it a big deal. It's not really treated as a secret, though that is the word that has been used, and instead, it leads to a nice moment between Kate and Reid.
You can always count on CBS' Criminal Minds to come up with something else to add to your list of "things to fear upon stepping outside (or inside) of your home," and as you can see in the previews released for this week's episode, "A Thousand Suns" might not be the episode to watch if you have a fear of flying.
This episode sees the Bau called in to build a profile around the suspicious circumstances after a passenger jet crashes in Colorado. This is a case that hits close to home for Kate and reminds her of a family tragedy. »
