    That’s a season high rating right there for The Librarians. Fantasic. The show does average around a 0.9 with DVR viewing, with over 3 million viewers. It’s just not loaded with aged viewers like Major Crimes. I’m expecting a Season 4 renewal this month.

      Lindy Booth liking John Larroquette? Were did that come from?? That seemed pretty random…and wrong. It’s probably a good thing a bunch of “aged viewers” didn’t see that.

      At the end, the vampire intimately kisses her, so was that supposed to mean something else?

      Then there was Wyle’s night with Romijn that turned out to be a pointless waste of time.

      The episode also made Booth’s tumor pointless, but I guess they had to resolve that when they probably realized it was probably not something they should have had in the first place despite making her character a bit more interesting.

      The show just keeps losing me with its stupid creative decisions.

      By the way –

      Your comment on “aged viewers” comes across as discriminatory. I know advertisers care, but I believe, in the realistic grand scheme of things, it does not matter a great deal, as you might think. In truth, I think the 25-54 age range, if one is to be considered, is the more realistic one. You (networks) make it sound like older folks should not be allowed enjoy a show like this. I don’t want to debate you on this, but do you think any network, TNT in this case, should cancel a show like Librarians because too many older folks are watching regardless of you appreciation of it? NBC did this, boldly admitting so, when they canceled Harry’s Law.

      I suppose rating at a season two level gets a renewal on crappy TNT

    What are the ratings for Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V that aired on Nicktoons at 10:00AM please?
