NBC’s “Parenthood” came to a conclusion on Thursday night, when it enjoyed a nice Nielsen ratings bump from last season’s finale. The Jason Katims‘ show’s lead-in — “The Biggest Loser” Season 16 finale — was down 36 percent from the comparable episode last year.
To be fair to “Loser,” last year the show aired on a Tuesday in a different timeslot, so its competition was quite different. In other words, it didn’t have to contend with the monster that Shondaland Thursdays have become.
Speaking of which, ABC’s return of its hit #Tgit handed it first place in the key demo. »

Fast National ratings for Friday, January 29, 2015. "Scandal" and "Grey's Anatomy" both returned up from their November finales, leading ABC to an easy Thursday win among young viewers, though a strong primetime start from "The Big Bang Theory" let CBS hold on for an overall win. With ABC's dramas returning big and several CBS comedies rising from last week, Fox bore the brunt of the audience hit, with "American Idol" drooping 19 percent week-to-week and "Backstrom" falling 26 percent. Finally, the series finale of "Parenthood" rose 31 percent over both last week and last series finale's 18-49 numbers, drawing its biggest overall audience since December 2012. Let's get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged a 3.1 rating for Thursday night, tops in the key demographic. CBS was second with a 2.3 key demo rating, followed by the 1.8 key demo rating for Fox. NBC averaged a 1.5 key demo rating in fourth, still ahead of The CW's »

“Guys like us don’t get the girl,” Oliver told Barry back in the first part of The Flash and Arrow‘s two-night crossover event, and while he may have been right (at least for the moment) about Barry and Iris, that isn’t going to stop Central City’s hero from trying to find love with someone else. And that’s exactly what Barry, along with Caitlin, does in next Tuesday’s episode of The Flash, titled “Crazy for You,” as he meets the lovely Linda Park (played by The Vampire Diaries alum Malese Jow) and even, as these photos show, introduces her to Iris. That won’t be the least bit awkward at all, will it? Elsewhere in the episode, Barry and the team set their sights on Shawna (Britne Oldford), who isn’t exactly using her teleportation powers for good, as she breaks her boyfriend out of prison. »

There’s something ironic about a vampire uttering the phrase, “Life’s too short,” but if it means that the Delena hiatus is over, then that’s a reason in itself to celebrate. And, it’s a good thing too since The Vampire Diaries is about to get a lot more convoluted before anyone gets a glimpse of happily ever after again.
Even when Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) intentions are noble, and that’s a good majority of the time lately, his flaw is always in the execution. Simply put, he has no finesse. For a vampire who’s been alive for somewhere in the ballpark of a century and a half, you would think he would have learned just a little more about the art of subtlety. Yet, impossible as it seems, he has very little self-restraint – and once again, it’s come back to bite him in the behind. »

Last season, Arrow became The CW's most-watched show (surpassing The Vampire Diaries) but it was down year-to-year. Will it continue to be a top show? Will the ratings rise or fall? Could it be cancelled or is it a lock for a season four renewal? Stay tuned.
On Arrow, vigilante Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) works with a former military man (David Ramsey), a computer science expert (Emily Bett Rickards), and a reformed street criminal (Colton Haynes) to fight injustice in Starling City. The series also stars Katie Cassidy, John Barrowman, Paul Blackthorne, and Willa Holland.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am »

Nikki Reed was spotted on a run in Atlanta on Thursday, and we finally got a glimpse of what looks like her engagement ring!

One of the best parts of The Vampire Diaries Season 6 so far (for me, at least) has been the developing relationship between Stefan and Caroline. Whether you consider yourself a “Steroline” shipper, or whether you just enjoy the friendship that the two characters have together, this season has been full of some great moments between them, and as evidenced by the photo above (along with the photos below) from the Feb. 12th episode of The Vampire Diaries, titled “Stay,” there are plenty more moments ahead for Stefan and Caroline. The only question that remains is simple: will they have these moments together as friends, or as a couple? Additionally, “Stay” will serve as The Vampire Diaries‘ farewell episode to Jeremy and the actor who portrays him, Steven R. McQueen, who will be leaving the show as a series regular. While the door is open for McQueen to make guest…
