    @Robert and et al.

    Any info for MLS All Star game on ESPN2 on Wednesday night?
    Any info for AS Roma vs. Liverpool on ESPN2 on Wednesday evening? Thank you

  • caressastar

    I personally like the top list and wish we could see that every day. Is it too much trouble to post both?

  • Survivor Fan

    The Franchise SHOW 66 0.0

    First time I have ever seen this!

  • MJDB

    Any Retired at 35 ratings please?

  • Max

    @SurvivorFan

    You should see how WEB THERAPY is doing on SHOWTIME. LOL. I love that show but I think it does about half of what The Franchise does with the same 0.0.

  • AJ

    Dallas is still doing good for Wed. nights. It’s been either the number 1 or 2 watched show by viewership.

  • Greg

    I think they need to phase out the two young female leads on Dallas because they just aren’t that interesting. They also look alike a little bit. Bland characters just don’t draw in the viewers. Look at the original DALLAS. Sue Ellen was a drunk, Pam was absolutely beautiful and riveting…they were interesting. I love the Dallas reboot but they need to bring in new love interests for John Ross and Christopher. They also need to add a few new characters, and this foolish feud about drilling for oil on Southfork land is really ridiculous. Bring back Ewing Oil and bring in some competitors for them to fight with. This in-fighting is tiring. Josh as John Ross is by far, IMO, the bright spot of the show (as is Larry as JR). Josh is not only one of the most beautiful people on tv but he’s a good actor. He totally sells me as being Jr’s son. I also am not that interested in Christopher’s alternative energy. Dallas was always about oil. Keep it about oil. Its just more dramatic and interesting that way. AND OH, BRING BACK PAM EWING! Ann, Bobby’s wife, is just as boring as the two young female leads!!!

  • Jennifer West

    These numbers are difficult to put in context other than week to week performance. There is so much more than influences the first run rating including what was on b’cast, what were the premium channels airing, what sports were on, no PUTS or HUTS are ever published to see if audience viewership is just down across the board. The share is critical to publish so we have some indication if PUTS/HUTS are influencing.
    These shows will have a very tough time up against the Olympics being on so many channels. This has been a tough summer to get a real read with large electrical outages, weather – so much influences TV viewership. We don’t know how much was DVRed for playback.

  • Jared

    Any numbers for Wakebrothers on MTV at 11 pm?..

  • Ralph Hahn

    I hate the above list because I think it should include the 25-54’s as well.
    On the cable news shows, the important demo is the 25-54 age group and “The O’Reilly Factor” is King of the World there. No one would really know that because Bill O is at the bottom of the above 18-49 list. I don’t think it’s fair that some shows, like cable news, should be on both lists because they are for clearly different average viewers.

  • AJ

    I agree with Greg, DALLAS needs to get back to the old Ewing oil, Ewing Barnes feuds, JR needs to get back to being his old evil self. Maybe bring in a son of Cliff Barnes and let him start the Barnes Ewing feud.

  • Rono

    Finally Hollywood Exes, one of the good reality shows without stupid fighting, is up. think it’ll grow next week

  • Jon23812

    If Dallas does well in DVD sales it won’t be in that much trouble.

  • HT

    Dallas actually got a 1.0 if you include the 11pm showing.

  • JNK

    @ HT I don’t think that is how it works. Please anyone let me know if I am wrong but I do not think you would add in the repeat, correct?

  • James

    Thanks Nick!!!

  • silvit

    @JNK

    Repeats don’t have any value. And for a repeat, it’s pretty low. 11 pm showing repeats of the other shows on TNT do better.

    They are just trying to pimp up bad Dallas numbers. At the moment it’s TNT worst performing scripted show of the summer. Leverage gets the same numbers but at 8 pm when the ratings are lower in general. The numbers speak for themselves. It’s TNT Political Animals.

  • Usi

    Thanks so much Nick!

    @ silvit

    You just sound like a big Dallas hater so stop yourself while you’re ahead.

    Thank you @Nick
