  • Davis

    Finally, ‘Conan’ broke a million viewers

  • Jared

    Awkward is repeated so much on MTV that anybody whose a fan of the show can catch up pretty much anytime they want.

    Are those good numbers for Sullivan and Son on TBS? Because they dont seem too good to me.

  • One

    The text and the table contradict each other w/ regards to Mountain Men (1.3 in text, 1.2 in table).

  • Gary

    Suits best summer cable show bar none

  • Aerilyn

    Considering Awkward. has managed to hold up consistently within the 0.7-0.8 range since its premiere, even after it was made unavailable due to the DirecTV vs. Viacom dispute, I have absolute faith MTV will be renewing it for a 3rd season. All I’m hoping for is that it gets a 3rd FULL season with at least 22-24 episodes.

    Also, Awkward.’s second season has been better than ever! The writers are still on their A-game and the cast continues to do a great job.

    …and now I’m beginning to sound like some MTV spokesperson.

    Anyway, when Teen Wolf was off of MTV it fell to a 0.6, right? With 1.3 million viewers. Awkward. is doing pretty darn great here in my opinion, and I hope next week it does manage to go up now that the whole DirecTV vs. Viacom thing is finally over!

  • Nick Rules

    Nice to see Spongebob on the list

  • The Bandit

    I must be the only one watching golf.

    Hard to believe that Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson make more money than any football player when apparently no one is watching them play.

  • Jake Jowcowski

    How Bout that Property Wars!!! Intense way more money on the line then Storage Wars, cant wait to see who gets the house and whats behind the door. I have a buddy who buys houses for an investor like this and he says its true you cant really see inside, the Banks dont want you to know so you have to take the good with the bad…just like the storage loacker places.

  • Oliver

    Anger Management up versus last week. Pure speculation, but I think it might squeak into its monster syndication order.

    Awkward down, still doing okay and I think it will be renewed. Still beating the axed I Just Want My Pants back despite a lower lead-in and, of course, MTV care about a younger-skewing audience than 18-49.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @TheBandit: It’s not hard to believe, especially since due to the time zone differences between USA and the UK, all the ESPN coverage was while most people were working.

  • kbmv

    @nickrules why is it nice to see spongebob on the list? Are you 5-12 years old? Now family guy is grownup animation

  • Tessa

    Who was it again that said USA’s star was declining?

    I wished I could like BN though. I so so wished with all my heart.

  • USAmerica1st

    Burn Notice rolls on and on. Great ensemble cast, wonderful writing, clever casting of well known character actors: Dean Cain, Kristanna Loken, Lauren Stamile, Tricia Helfer, etc.. Roll on!

  • Sparky

    Phenomenal episode of Suits last night – can’t believe we only have 5 episodes left until the summer finale!!

  • Simon

    Go Burn Notice!! With four weeks of steady 1.2 in that demo, the show finally rises! Season high I believe.

  • Aces and Eights

    Seems like the Fiona in jail stuff has really helped Burn Notice get back to 5 million viewers this summer and owning the night again. USA needs some leverage outside of Raw against TNT in that race for the cable title.

    Good growth for Anger Management as they’ll have another week without the Olympics in the picture so it should succeed. This show is miles ahead way better than Two and a Half Men.

    Good start for Sullivan & Son despite the drop for the 2nd episode, these numbers are similar to Men at Work. It would be in ABC Family, TBS, and FX’s best interest to put together a 2 hour multi-cam block next summer.

    How about TNA just missing the deadline deal for Viacom and Direct TV and still growing from last week with 1.3 million viewers. Next week I’m expecting a bit more as this product has been on a role. With Aces and Eights looking like the next NWO expect them to help move the ratings needle for TNA.

  • Fiona BN

    Good to see Anger Management stabilizing and growing. FX needs new comedies around it though.

  • MJDB

    Has anyone heard what’s going on with TBS’ Are We There Yet? Is it true that it won’t be on TBS anymore but first-run syndication in the fall?

  • Neil

    USA has themselves one heck of a tag team there on Thursday nights. Two, top notch shows. Hard to remember when I even watched network TV between 9-11 on a weekday.

  • Charlie Sheen WINNING!

    The whole DirecTV saga actually gives Viacom a chance to see what’s actually performing strongly for them.

    Shows like Awkward and TNA proved that their worthy to Viacom.

    Anger Management is just running away with the cable comedy title right now.
