    @Joe: usually (except for weekends & Nielsen delays) we receive the top 100 list for the day before between @~1:30-2p PT and it comes in a format that is very easily made into a table and we post every show in that list. The second list from @TVBill comes usually 2-4 hours later (or more, or even not at all if TVBill isn’t around) and it does not come in a format where it’s easy to post as a table. Other shows usually get added into the post and/or the comments later.

  • Jenny

    Baby Daddy is doing really well, and it’s getting renewed for sure.

    The Soul Man rebounded back to the one millions. The Exes looks good for renewal, and hopefully it can increase some more.

  • James

    Hollywood Heights is having a good week…needs to continue to go up though. Avg 741K viewers this week so far. 699K for Monday, 812K for Tues, 714K for Wed.

  • OMG

    I’ve got to say Dallas is just way too soapy, and this coming from someone that absolutely loves Revenge. I gave up on Dallas after the 6th episode, because I feel that most of the episodes it is just people threatening one another, then the other comes up with something else to threaten, and so on and so forth. There is too little action besides people talking, which is fine if the actors are excellent, but the new actors are quite limited in portraying the characters. The characters are not that well-written and compelling, and they are not people you root for. I do not love to hate the villains, or love the “good people” either. I just do not see myself going on watching.

    I hope Dallas fans do not take offense, I am not rooting for this show to fail, but it is my opinion and I believe a lot of others’ which may have given up watching.

  • joss

    lol glad to see that pedofhile show Toddlers & Tiaras is so up in the list… exes is doing well

  • John A

    Pathetic Dallas numbers.

  • John A

    The real issue i have with Dallas is the new cast is awful. Elena and Rebecca are awful and John Ross and Christopher too.

  • Ryan

    I saw, Hardcore Pawn was on as well. Any ratings for that?

  • MJDB

    Hope Retired at 35 will end up on the top 100 list, it was hysterical Wednesday night and also The Soul Man and The Exes did great.

  • Cyrax86

    So after 6 episodes in a row of 0.8 rating, Necessary Roughness drops even further. But I still think it’s gonna be saved, since both Common Law and Political Animals are unlikely to be renewed. Plus Burn Notice might be too expensive for a 7th season…

  • Melanie

    Ouch at Dallas! I think it has been really good and there are just two more episodes in the season. Hopefully the season finale will pick up.

  • silvit

    @Ram510
    I predicted that Dallas would be underperforming. TNT will never learn. Shows like this won’t work on that channel. Not to mention a trite product like that which was on 30 years ago. Destined to fail.

  • silvit

    NCIS on USA at 0.3? Is the world going smart? ;-) SVU repeats do better. These are TNT repeats’ numbers.

  • Max

    Dang. Just when all thought DALLAS had finally stabilized to where it would be (in the 0.9-1.0) range, it drops to this. The viewers are still there somewhat but the show is definitely on the weak side. I guess fans should just be glad that it already has been renewed.

    Am I alone in saying how wonderful it was to see the old-school type table with only first run shows instead of the crazy long table that includes everything?

  • Mike

    Melissa and Joey was getting 1 1/2 million viewers at one point this season, and Melissa was on Access Hollywood and The Talk on Wednesday so there was some promotion there.

  • Sexy Back

    Don’t understand the drop for Dallas after coming off their best two episodes of the season so far. I didn’t expect the drop until next week when the Olympics start but the numbers are still good b/c I know TNT focuses on the 25-54 that’s not psot here far more than that 18-49 number.

    Speaking of the Olympics please start posting the NBCSN and other Olympic cable numbers until the games end I believe people were requesting this earlier in the week so no excuses why those numbers weren’t posted.

    Good to see the ABC Family comedies numbers up!

  • Nadine

    Too early to set up a funeral pyre for Dallas. Notice that it’s a soft week all around. And: the Olympics are coming! the Olympics are coming! So let’s windsurf and eat lobster and give it a few weeks’ rest. It’s true that it may be trending down, and it’s also true that the young cast just hasn’t got Hagman’s or Duffy’s charisma–which was obvious from the first. But TNT simply has to stop thinking of this show as the home run they thought they had, and accept it as another summer show. A double ain’t bad — especially when Royal Pains in pitching. Trouble is, it’s gotta be expensive.

  • Nadine

    Well you go, Restaurant Impossible!

  • neil

    Don’t get it Beverly Hills Nannies is pretty good…could it be the 10pm rerun hurting it?

  • Red Jane

    Dallas is on its path to extinction… Basically going back where it should have been left back in the 90s
