It doesn't surprise me. Last night's show was boring as all hell. B&S needs to get its act together and FAST. If it keeps up like this, I could really see this being the show's last season.

To be fair Mason, DH was also down nearly 2 million and IMO it was the best episode of the season.

I think it's because not a lot of people realised it was new, hopefully.

B&S really needs an overhaul and hopefully killing Tommy off will be the shot in the arm. I kind of felt like some of last nights episode was rewritten, because spoilers said that Kevin made out with Julia while hopped up on pills, but it happened in a dream. Also the whole biological father thing really makes me think Tommy will die and Kevin and Scotty will raise Lizzie

That's true, but who knows if ABC will even care? LoL

I really, REALLY hope Tommy is killed off, because that's just what the show needs.

I think the show wants to kill him off, but the network is apprehensive.

It looks like it was not a good night for ABC. Maybe a lot of people called it an early night since today was the first workday in a while for some, Haha. Who knows?

I heard B&S was bad, but I didn't see it. I think it will come back for one more season next year.

True about ABC, but Berlanti just signed a 5 year 10+ million dollar deal with ABC and they already cancelled two of his shows. (DSM, ES) so I don't think they'd get rid of his baby. Plus is gets great critical praise and award nominations.

Ya know, sfter he started working on all three shows, Brothers & Sisters started to suffer. I am confident that Feb-May will be awesome B&S like Season 1 and 2

Here's his latest shows set for this coming fall.

THE RETURN (ABC) - Drama about the impact on the world (including the White House) when aliens land.

MYSTIC CONFIDENTIAL.COM (ABC) a family drama focusing on a how a blog impacts the lives of the members
of a small town.

I know! seriously! I can't even stand to look at him anymore. I'd rather watch Scotty tan than see Tommy on my screen.

Those new shows sound weird and crazy! LOL!

I think B&S will be better in the Spring too, but I fear what the new shows will do to the show like DSM and ES did.
