    Nikita is on fire with it’s repeas keeping a good pace for a Summer Friday repeat. Hopefully season 4 also :)

  • John A

    Wow Community total viewers are horrible.

  • erourou

    Shark tank is repeating well !! i’m french, and i follow the ratings in america every day

  • Hades

    Am I the only one who think Next Top Model could beat Community at 8.30 in the fall?

  • RJ

    @ Hades,

    That’s doubtful. Community would do a 0.6 at worst, which Top Model will probably struggle to reach. Hell, it was getting 0.4 and 0.5’s on Wednesdays.

    Rj yes TM did 0.4-0.5 in the spring but got two 0.6 if I remember right one for the finale which aired a couple weeks after all other broadcast network shows finale which leads me to believe that starting in August with much less competition will help it.Plus it usually got 0.8-1.0 in fall last fall so if returns to that & CW isn’t down again(part of the reason TM did poorly in spring),it’s possible especially since moving Community to Fridays will possibly/Likley hurt its ratings but TM will probably be hurt by the move to Fri too.(I hate Mark Pedowitz).
