Monday: Castle doesn't start until next week because there's a special called Conveyer Belt of Love after The Bachelor. Women literally watch men go by on a converyor belt and decide which one they want to pick. Fox airs the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Heroes on NBC is actually a two-hour episode (or two one-hour episodes).
Tuesday: Fox has the FedEx Orange Bowl.
Wednesday: This week, what the grid says should be a rerun on ABC is actually another new episode of The Middle. CBS has the second episode of I Get That A Lot followed by the People's Choice Awards.
Thursday: ABC has the BCS National Championship game.
Friday: Dateline NBC is actually two hours this week.
Saturday: If you missed the premiere of The Bachelor, it reairs here. NBC has their second NFL Playoff game airing in primetime Saturday night, with Philadelphia playing against Dallas.
Sunday: Not sure why only Cold Case is new on CBS, but there you are. Those reruns on Fox are actually the last two episodes of 'Til Death this week. They're followed up by the 450th episode of The Simpsons, The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special In 3-D On Ice, and a new The Cleveland Show. NBC has the two-hour season premiere of Chuck on Sunday night before it moves to its normal timeslot next Monday.

Can it be? The Jay Leno show didn't even crack a 1.0?

I don't watch Leno, so I don't know if he had any new episodes, but Boffo doesn't include ratings for shows that are reruns.

Yeah Leno was reruns. They got between a 1.0 and a 1.3 among adults 18-49. So that's even worse for Scrubs and Better Off Ted. Reruns of a show that has been blasted for its horrible ratings did the same as new episodes of those two shows.

I love Better Off Ted (I need to write down everything Veronica says because she's hilarious.), but I didn't even get caught up on the last two weeks until last night. I'd love if it was brought over to the Wednesday comedy block when Scrubs can finally die (I loved JD's line the other week about how many times he's been gone and come back), but there's so much other awesomeness on tv right now I don't know how much I'd miss it.

You believe me, don't you?

Yeah, I haven't seen much promotion for Better Off Ted, but I still watch it and mostly love it. Ratings be damned.

Speaking of ratings, how is AFHV still getting like 10 million viewers per week? It has survived long enough to see Bob Saget come into relevance, disappear completely, come back as a foul-mouthed comedian, and then disappear again.

Then again, if Trace Bealieu (sp?) is still writing for the show, then I hope it goes on forever.

Airing two episodes of Scrubs and Better of Ted at a time (though it seems random if they're both new or one is new) seems to me like they're burning off as many as possible in anticipation of moving them out of the line up before Lost comes back, so they can have something in that lineup that might be around next year and could use the boost. - luchablog

Not sure where you guys are getting the idea that the Doctor is totally cool with murdering people from. This is a character who had a crisis of conscience when faced with the opportunity to wipe out the most destructive, evil race in the universe.
