    What is the chance of Top Shot (0.7) having a fifth season?

  • Dennis

    Many Law & Order: SVU!!

  • Lane

    I wonder how much CBS gets for these repeats of TBBT in terms of money and viewers?

    “I wonder how much CBS gets for these repeats of TBBT in terms of money and viewers?”

    No good numbers in public that I know of, but it’s certain to be a very big number.

  • chris

    Great numbers for Real Housewives of OC at 9 and 10pm :)

  • zed

    Will Modern Family get a rating bump next season when repeats of it start airing ? I think USA bought the syndication rights for 3 million an episode.

  • peter

    @Survivor fan:

    Top Shot (season 1 to 3) usually gets anything from 0.7 to 1.0 A18-49. This season the ratings have been on the lower end of the spectrum. But two positive things to keep hoping for season 5:

    -The lead-in is not as strong as the previous years. So that might be a good excuse.

    -The show is pretty cheap and that’s why History made 4 seasons in less than 2 years. If the ratings are bad i’m sure History will try first to have only 1 season per year instead of 2.

  • Andrew

    I know this is a stretch, but does anyone remember what kind of numbers The Office was pulling when it had that 3 hour Tuesday night block on TBS?? Those Big Bang numbers are amazing, just wondering how much higher than the Office they are?

  • msupdate

    16 & Preg’s rating just keeps falling… What’s going on with MTV?

  • Freddy Arrow

    The cable nets’ habit of having mini marathons of shows seems weird to me, but I guess it works. I would think having an hour of The Big Bang Theory at the same time every night would be better, but this seems to work.

  • Mon

    @Andrew
    I remember one airing of The Office got 0.6, another one got 0.8. Most likely that was the range of The Office ratings during its Tuesday marathon on TBS. Recently, The Office got 0.4 at 12am. Still good. I don’t remeber how it did on total viewers.

  • Clay

    Any Ratings for Shannen Says? I’m extremely curious.

  • David Howell

    TBBT season 1 reruns on TBS doing roughly as well as NBC’s first-run scripted shows. Wow.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Clay, the first episode drew only 172,000 total viewers. HORRIBLE! It was beyond ad nauseum how the WE network advertised this show about 20 times per hour months before it’s premier. I can’t imagine who would want to watch this nonsense. Obviously, no one did.

  • Tolstoyx

    Wow, The Five on fox has finally reached the level that Glenn Beck was fired for.

  • Andrew

    Thanks Mon!

    That’s not bad at all for the Office then. I like them both, but was just curious as to why the Office was completely booted from TBS prime time to make room for like 8 hours of Big Bang Theory episodes every week. Guess it makes sense if the ratings are 5+ tenths higher!
