  • jack

    Suprised that the (hysterical!) ‘big schlong’ episode of The Exes didnt make the list.The funniest sitcom on tv.

  • Ethan

    personally stunned that baby daddy not only held demo, but gained viewers. super impressive. maybe abcfam can do comedy after all…just better off with hot young dudes than former sitcom stars.

  • HT

    DALLAS will be renewed – just look at it’s international sales. It’s paid TNT back already and will continue to do so for a couple of years. I say Dallas will squeeze out 3 maybe 4 seasons. Europeans and Australians loved this show.

  • Dennis

    lol Dallas continues to fall.

    0.8 for next week i bet

  • Overdamoon

    Go Dallas at 9PM!! It makes the top 100 list again at 11PM This reboot is so good it must be criminal or fattening.

    Next week, every in South Fork will know whether JR is a “changed man” as he claims every so often.

  • Kelly

    hahaha The Real World did bad I knew it, last season did better!!

  • Overdamoon

    It’s a no brainer that TNT will renew Dallas. Look at what else they have on their plate.

    LAW & ORDER TNT ………. 8:00 PM 1552 0.4
    Dallas TNT …………… 9:00 PM 4079 1.1
    Mentalist, THE TNT ……. 10:00 PM 1497 0.4
    Dallas TNT …………… 11:00 PM 1079 0.4

  • Ben

    So, how did The Exes fair last night? It was hysterical. Thanks for the numbers in advance.

  • ROB

    Last season The Real World Premiered with 1.9 million and a 1.2 rating and this season the Real World started with 1.2 million and a 0.6 rating the show is really bad no one really exciting this season!

  • Overdamoon

    @Martin
    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.

    It was reported that TNT paid $2.5 million an episode for The Mentalist in syndication, and for “north of $2.0 million” an ep for Hawaii Five-0 syndication in 2014.

    The Mentalist has been pulling only 0.4 ratings so if TNT is paying $2 million to $3 million per ep for Dallas and getting above a 1.0, they must be estatic.

    @ROB

    How do you think Dallas is doing ? I know it seems as if it is being debated wheither or not it is still doing well. What is you take ? I love the opinion of a TV GOD :):):):)

  • mike

    The real world will go up, Brandon will be good for ratings. Last season was boring. If I remember correctly. Back to Vegas started out low too and then all the drama with Adam happened

  • Dennis

    I’m sure TNT will renew DALLAS but its far from the major hit people said it would be!

    1.5 – 1.3 – 1.1 …… definitely even lower next week

  • Tom

    There’s way too much drama on Necessary Roughness this season. Last year, the show had a good mix of comedy and drama. This season, it’s one crisis after another. Callie Thorne is still a good actor but this program isn’t as much fun to watch. Maybe that’s why it’s ratings are down.

  • RHONJd

    Wednesday Recap: Disney and Nick are rocking the summer, Real World starts off slow, MDLA is almost to a million, 80 plates will be canceled, Soul Man falls 50%, ABC Family’s comedy block is doing fantastic, and DALLAS continues to drop.

  • Jenny

    The Exes didn’t do too badly given how badly The Soul Man fell.

  • guy

    Interesting if you look at 18-49 for the .6 group, The Real World has the lowest household but the HIGHEST 18-49 percentage.

    So Sponge Bob must skew very young (or very old?) and NCIS obviously has OLDER viewers.

    Agreed?

  • JakeSnake

    Looks like Dallas continues to plummet while Royal Pains works its way back to the top. The world will be back to normal soon.

  • The End

    @guy

    It’s not that hard to grasp, basically Spongebob is rating the way it is because it’s parents watching with their kids, or teenagers under 18.

    Of course you have the kidults(Adults without kids that haven’t outgrown childrens cartoons).

    @Dennis

    What makes you say that? Guessing hate, either way I guess you haven’t heard of ratings leveling off? Typically when a show sheds viewers it starts to stabilise at a specific ratings range, say 4 million a week and continues like thats until it gets a random spike in viewers(Be it from a finale) or someone new decides to tune in.
