  • JR

    NBA finals will likely avg 15-20 million viewers per game, just a guess

  • TatiG

    WTF is Robot Chicken and why are people watching it?

  • Max

    What exactly does this “tax credit” thing mean for a show like Teen Wolf? I don’t quite get how it helps a show.

  • JR

    @tatiG I have no idea but it did better than the hockey finals lol

  • genie

    11PM with JS lead in is arguably the same as most heavily promoted show of the week at “the ten spot.” I still say if I was on TW I’d want to be avging greater than 1.6 to feel safe. It’s not a cheap show and MTV does a lot of developing. Cause Pants was cancelled according to MTV due to “what was on the bench.”
    (Plus retention, as you say, yes. I’d argue being after JS @11 is not a good spot for any scripted show but we are talking Teen Wolf not Pants here!)

  • Anon

    @genie

    The article Max linked detailing Teen Wolf qualifying for the tax credit says that they are planning to start shooting a minimum of 24 episodes in LA this fall.

    Plus, the creator of the show kept hinting that this season may be extended beyond 13 episodes, but wouldn’t say anything beyond that. He was probably waiting to see if they qualified for the tax credit. (Plus all the rumors that they are going to pair it with the Scream TV series MTV is developing.)

    Of course the show does need to stay steady, but I think last season showed that it has a built in audience. It didn’t have any fancy lead in yesterday, but it held it’s own and improved over last year’s second airing. Other MTV shows haven’t been so lucky, as evident by Pants.

    @JR

    I have no idea but it did better than the hockey finals lol

    LOL!

  • TatiG

    Even Stanley himself is not watching. I bet he is saying, WTF? since when do they have ice in LA.

    Seems like the LA Kings have enough radical fans to fill the Arena, but not much more.

  • Tony

    This LA tax credit will be really interesting considering I think that the 10.4 million that Teen Wolf would get is for 24 episodes. So if they don’t produce 24 episodes they don’t get the full 10.4 million. So I do believe this season could get extended or get renewed for a 24 episode third season. I haven’t heard of anything about the creator hinting about extending the season, but I believe it.

    Teen Wolf is a really great show! I got addicted to it just over the weekend thanks to Netflix and caught up just in time for Sunday’s premiere! If you have netflix… watch Teen Wolf! It’s NOTHING like Twilight and it’s even BETTER THAN The Vampire Diaries!

  • Matt

    JR, it’s the worst Cup Final I’ve ever seen. No physicality, no rooting interest in either team, and NJ seems to just be handing it to LA. Not hard to figure out why it bombed this year.

  • Tiera

    Good for Secret Life making it back up on the list even tho those ratings are still horrible. They better not get used to it considering they probably lost all of their gay audience within the past 2 episodes.

  • Max

    @Anon

    Thanks.

    I guess that leaves some wiggle room for the show in case it drops a bit this season. At least MTV knows they have this credit in their back pocket and so, renewal could be an easier decision. We shall see.

  • tvfan

    Ever since Secret Life came back in march it has SUCKED. the writers decided to regress every single character and devote the last 12 episodes to the love lives of the parents. Lots of fans have given up on the show in the last few months since NOTHING HAPPENS and at least 30 minutes of each episode is about adults. It better get better next week when season 5 starts or else. I don’t see a Season 6 for it at this point.

    and the last two gay-themed episodes were offensive and ridiculous. brenda hampton is useless as usual. I feel bad for the cast that has to mutter out stupid those lines.

  • Michael

    I expected Teen Wolf to do better, to be honest. The show isn’t performing badly, but I swear the promos were shown like 4 times in just one commercial this entire weekend. The countdown was ridiculous during the MTV awards.

  • Jaycee

    Teen Wolf is fine. 18-49 isn’t MTV’s demo so that doesn’t matter.

  • Slappy Go Jacky

    Matty Ice has excuses galore for the low hockey ratings. Bahahahahaha!!! I love it!

  • Ben Thompson

    The Boston fanbase must have been really big for last years numbers to be much bigger than this years.

  • Matt

    Teen Wolf isnt going anywhere, its steady

    Secret Life is doing pathetically!

    and RHONYC did awful!!! Their new cast obviously didnt help. RHONJ got a 1.2 and 2.5 mil on Sunday, compared to the .6 and 1.6 mil of NYC, pathetic!

    and for tonight! I think Storage Wars will get like 6 mil, PLL will get about 3 mil and other shows will perform well

  • TheLyingGameFan

    Bunheads, Pretty Little Liars, Switched at Birth, and Jane by Design all received the lucrative tax break, too.

    I was hoping beyond hope that The Lying Game would be included in this list.
    Oh well, with the $$$ ABC Family will save, maybe they will invest it in this series…

  • TheLyingGameFan

    PS I missed the sentence that stated these programs were chosen from 322 applicants via a lottery drawing! Major score for ABC Family!
