    The week before the ratings went down from .7 to .6 due to a Cubs game in Chicago.

    So the finale went from .8 to .7 again due to a Cubs game in Chicago.

    Have we gotten the +7 for the penultimate episode (I love that word)?

    1. Paula R. Stiles

      That’s usually three or four weeks later, assuming the show appears in them.

      The good news is that the station in question in Chicago is dropping the CW and the network is moving to a FOX affiliate next fall, so hopefully, we won’t see as many preemptions in that market next season.

    Thanks for the info. I am from Chicago, and the Cubs were on WGN but I checked WGN and they are not showing them on my cable so I am confuse if the CW runs off WGN.

    Do you know anything about this? i looked it up and google said 40 games on WGN and the rest on something called CSN (which I assume is Cubs Sports Network).

    I mean, if I got the CW on TWO channels (the Albuquerque NM channel and WGN I would be happy. But I did not ‘find’ the CW shows on WGN. So I don’t know what is going on.

  3. evave2

    Ok I checked again and there are “no” CW shows on my WGN Cable. Have they already dropped the CW so there are no ratings available or is the stuff that is shown on DISH (my provider) different from what the channel shows in Chicago?

    Very confusing.

      1. evave2

        That makes sense, I should have thought of it. I wondered if they were not allowed to have ‘two’ CW channels on my queue.

        Sometimes the world of satellite providers confuses me. I found out about 2wks ago that I have had Smithsonian for years and now I got lots of goodies to dvr.
