  • Sid

    F/X must be thrilled!

  • Steel

    You’re missing the ratings at the bottom of the chart.

  • Max

    As expected, AWKWARD shows TEEN WOLF who is boss of MTV’s scripted programming.

    And FX has a solid night all around. Every one of their Thursday shows is a hit.

  • Chris in Kansas

    What? This is the first week I haven’t seen Kathy on the list! Crap! And last night’s show with Jane Fonda was hilarious. Can’t believe it only got a .2 (or worse). If anyone sees numbers, please post. thanks!

  • me

    Charlie Sheen, get your old job back. Is the news of the day Sheen or Ann left NBC crying…no tears for not Winning…

  • Jake

    I don’t understand why TNA wrestling can’t break the 2 million viewership mark. The show is great and the only reason I can think of as to why the viewership won’t go up is because of those hardcore only watch WWE programing marks. Sad, as last night was by far one of the best wrestling shows I have ever seen in my 26 years of watching pro wrestling.

  • Chris

    TNA wrestling got robbed last night

  • Daw Johnson

    Just terrible #s for the Snooki & JWoww series. What a letdown that one is.

  • Dillan

    Glad Snooki and JWOWW didn’t drop too much.

  • Daw Johnson

    And I’m glad Louie showed some life in the demo, but that’s a pretty underwhelming # when you consider how much press CK has gotten recently. Every media outlet basically prostituted themselves to CK, and the show still couldn’t break a 1 in the demo.

    Such a shame, because you won’t find a more artistic show anywhere but AMC.

  • Eric

    @Jake, no TNA can’t get past 2 million viewers because nobody wants to waste 2 hours of their night watching that garbage.. WWE is a far superior product right now and doesnt need a bunch of cussing and blood to try and prove it

  • Martin

    Knew Snooki and JWoww wouldn’t have Pauly D level drops in their second week.

    Great numbers for Awkward and without the massive ratings of Teen Mom as a lead-in like it had last season.

    Men at Work holding up really well, almost equal to TBBT.

    And Suits had a higher demo than Burn Notice, when will they be renewed again??

  • xwiseguyx

    Sad to see Kathy not doing well. Since she has added celebs the show has gotten 10x better.

  • Sam

    Good for AWKWARD. Enjoyed it last night!

  • Jared

    Awkward was great last night..and the numbers reflect that.

  • Mark

    How old are you Eric? six? eight? If you watched TNA Impact you would know how great it is atm but because fans like you are so brainwashed into only watching WWE produced crap (Which btw I watch all wrestling) you miss out on some of the best pro wrestling out atm.

    But I will take the bait, why is WWE a superior product right now?

  • Ben Thompson

    Great for Anger Management and Awkward.

  • brian

    @eric @jake- Shut up! neither product is good or great. Besides a segment here and there. Wrestling hasn’t been good in 6 years! Move on, both shows are a waste of time.

  • disney rocks

    Disney: 11 entries
    Nick: 4 entries

  • nick

    Kathy Griffin deserves so much more!!!! Her show is 100 times funnier then Jay Leno, Letterman, and Conan. My favorite late night talk shows are

    1. Kathy
    2. Craig Ferguson
    3. Jimmy Kimmel
    4. Jimmy Fallon
