This article is complete rubbish. It is comparing this Friday night's ratings with the previous Saturday night's ratings. This show's Friday night ratings have always been lower than its Saturday night ratings. If you compare apples to apples, there was a very small decrease in the week-over-week ratings on Friday night (5.767% vs. 5.792%), but actually a small increase for Saturday night (6.775% vs. 6.496%).

I don't understand. How can it drop when the story is getting freakin exciting? Sometimes you just can't trust this kind of companies, they can manipulate everything.
