Gah! That list is a little distressing. The only show I watch in the top list is Gossip Girl, but several of my favorites have suffered significant drops... Terminator, Old Christine, Dirty Sexy Money, Heroes :(

I'm deliriously happy with Supernatural gaining because that's my new favorite show. I love it just as much as Moonlight.
