    So Baby Daddy didn’t lose any viewers at all? It actually hit a series high in total viewers for episode two. Bunheads and Baby Daddy are actually bucking the trend, which is very impressive for ABC Family. The Soul Man fell a boat load!!! The Exes isn’t even on the list?

  • TimsDale4ever

    Go DALLAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Aerilyn

    Wow, Baby Daddy is performing extremely well for ABC Family.

    Melissa and Joey is also performing stronger with its new companion. I wish it picked up the higher total viewers like Baby’s Daddy, because as much as I like both of these shows, I do like M&J more than Baby’s Daddy.

    Both were great last night though! Looks like ABC Family might finally have a comedy block working for them.

  • xwiseguyx

    Soul Man down a lot… Million Dollar Listing inching it’s way to 1 million.. 80 Plates just never caught on. Good for Dallas!

  • bb

    Baby Daddy is a really good show, I like it more than Melissa and Joey. Hollywood Exes is really good, no where near as trashy as vh1 other shows like love and hip hop, (the worst) basketball wives and mob wives. But I hadn’t even heard about this show until Monday so hopefully the viewers will pick up next week, it reminds you of something with the quality of bravo, not as good as The Real Housewives, but I like it.

  • Martin

    Wow at the Baby Daddy retention, really good and again it helped Melissa And Joey.

    Dallas is down again, hopefully it will go no more, can still see it getting renewed easily though, with just the overseas sales potential, would like it to level out now or even grow cos it is just so good.

    Does anyone know how low it could go and still be renewed, based on averages and expensiveness of the show and stuff like that.

    The Soul Man dropped, i’m not that surprised, didn’t really like it last or that much this week. The Exes though was absolutely hilarious, definitely the best episode of that show yet, wonder how low it got though, would say maybe 1mil and 0.3, definitely not as low as Retired At 35 anyway.

  • teevee time

    Will someone please shoot the ignoramus that came up with the term “baby daddy”?

  • Ryan530

    Good sign that Futurama went up from the premier last week. People must not have know that it moved to Wednesday.

  • Sid

    DALLAS is no breakout hit for TNT, however, Deadline is reporting that it’s apparently a “shoe-in” for renewal as well as the rest of TNT’s lineup. Also, L.A. Noir is nearing a Series Order( :D )

    Baby Daddy is a great show, glad it’s holding steady. It appears to be helping out M&J.

  • panda22

    I suspect Baby Daddy like last week will boost M&J in the coveted female demos. Baby Daddy seems to really appeal to young female and women…..babies!

    Yep, babies and young clueless guys makes for lots of Twitter chatter and forum postings. I guess ABCF finally have the golden comedy duo they were looking for.

  • MJDB

    Does anyone have The Exes ratings please?

  • Ivan

    Any numbers for the new Figure It Out at 7pm, Nick? Thanks

  • Sonny

    I still can’t believe TNT is going to air an original episode of Dallas on the 4th of July.

  • Vh1

    Hollywood exes did better on Monday night then it did on it original airing

  • John A

    So Dallas has lost 3 million viewers in 2 weeks. I hope it stays steady now.

  • John A

    Funny that TBBT and family guy repeats beat Dallas and Royal Pains.

  • Martin

    just checked and Baby Daddy was the second most watched show on ABC Family this week and the third highest in a18-49, tied with Melissa And Joey.

    I can see a renewal for these two any day now.

  • Ram510

    YAY Melissa & Joey!!!!!! Baby Daddy was really good too. Now hopefully they don’t lose steam with the holiday hiatus.

    Futurama was up and had a waaaaaay better episode this week (as expected) don’t know how it and Dallas will do on the 4th of July.

    The TVLand comedies were great last night as well! Overall Wednesday is a busy night filled with great comedies and Dallas!

    Real World sure did drop the ball. I haven’t seen a real World premiere that low in I don’t know how long if ever

  • 1mars

    So let me understand this, demo is king on networks but total viewers is king on cable?

  • Red Jane

    Dallas seems to be losing its ‘fizz’ fairly quickly – how long before it goes under 1.0 and what will be its steady level??? I am betting 0.6-0.7-ish – This summer is not going to be kind to this kitsch bit of soap….
