  • Aerilyn

    Also, it should be noted, Awkward. is up from last years’ 2nd episode of its 1st season. That’s good!

  • ACR

    Hope Awkward does better next week. Amazing show

  • Max

    Odd.

    When Teen Wolf does these numbers, people say “steady,” “good for MTV,” “the teen audience is probably big as compared to 18-49,” and stuff like that.

    So, shouldn’t Awkward be given the same type of remarks?

    To me, MTV is probably very pleased with the performance of both their scripted shows airing right now, no?

  • Steel

    Louie’s episode last night was fantastic. Melissa Leo stole the show.

  • Aerilyn

    @Max It’s still definitely good numbers for Awkward. like it is for Teen Wolf. I guess people like it here so much that they want to see it higher than it is!

  • disney rocks

    how i met your mother syndicated cable ratings? Nick, do you have them?

  • Jared

    Although AWKWARDS ratings fell substantially hard from its premiere..its numbers are still extremely good for MTV and with its critical praise..theres no doubt it wouldn’t be renewed for a third season.

  • j

    Yeah last year on Metacritic Awkward was #6 or so in the list of most-cited comedies on top 10 lists.

    But yeah, it’s a big fall for Sheen. From dominating to being below syndicated off-network reruns.

  • Jared

    Snooki & JWowws ratings are holding up pretty good..the show even repeats well for the night.

  • Jon

    Anger Management will still get the 90 episode order, it’s repeating very well for FX. Both Wilfred and Louie will be renewed as FX tend to let their comedies grow unless they’re really flopping and they’re also fairly cheap to make.

  • nick

    Honestly I’m not surprised that anger management fell so hard. But over 3 million views is still FANTASTIC for FX. Even if they went down to 500,000 viewership that would still be pretty good for FX. In my eyes it’s still a Hit show.

  • Corey

    @Max Both shows are doing fine! Most people say the things you said about Teen Wolf is because it has no lead in and it’s on Monday night. If you look at MTVs track record for shows that came on Monday nights they didn’t do well but Teen Wolf has. And I’m not surprised with the numbers for Awkward it was the day after the 4th. Some networks decide not to show new episodes during the week of the 4th. ABCfamily didn’t show episodes of it’s entire line up this week. Bottom line is both shows are doing great and both shows should get a season 3 renewal with the numbers that they’ve both gotten so far.

  • mike

    Awkward was hilarious frasians amasian

  • Martin

    It was the day after the 4th, I’m sure Awkward will go back up next week, I think people expect more out of that as it has been the higher rated of the two shows.

    Snooki and Jwoww is doing pretty good, if the rumours of next season being the last for the original cast of Jersey Shore, i can see this show being renewed and having the two girls carry it on. Also, during the preview for next weeks episode, didn’t see Mike there when the roommates came to visit, would like ot see what’s up with that.

    Did expect Anger Management to fall so not surprised, not far different for my guess i would of said 3.5million and a 1.4a18-49 for its second episode, it does repeat very well considering the episodes that were repeated were on a week ago and probably were repeated several times already.

    It is interesting to see some shows didn’t fall with the holidays and some did.

    But i think the likes of Awkward. and Anger Management and Dallas from Wednesday(which was actually on the 4th of july, I might add) will probably go up next week.

  • rob60990

    Most shows drop from their premieres so I don’t understand the concern over Awkward. It only dropped 2 tenths.

  • Tessa

    I love it that our predictions about Anger Management were right. Most of us knew once the curoisity was over half the audience would move on.

  • Joe

    poor Charlie I hope thats not begining of the end

    Seth must be thrilled syndc. beat original charlie sheen show lol

  • Colin

    I love Snooki and JWOWW they’re soo funny and the ratings is wow.

  • Bryan

    @Nick: Can you could post ratings for Disney XD’s new episode of “Lab Rats” at 7:30pm – thanks!

  • Anonymous

    Well I hope anger management continues to go down.
