We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our primary source, if you don't see your show it was not in that top 100 list. 

The list below is long but you can use your browsers "find on page" feature (usually CTRL+F or CMD+F) to search - that's probably the easiest way to find Tuesday night's episode of Futurama

    @renaldo: probably not, but also not worse news either. Hollywood Height’s 18-34 and 12-17 ratings are relatively the same (as bad) vs. Nick’s other shows as the 18-49 rtg. Last night:

    Victorious 8:30 0.4 rtg with women 18-34, 0.2 with men 18-34, 1.8 with people 12-17
    Hollywood Heights = 0.1 with women 18-34, 0.1 with men 18-34, 0.9 with people 12-17
    George Lopez 10:30p= 0.3 with women 18-34, 0.2 with men 18-34, 1.2 with people 12-17.

  • Nick

    Oops. Sorry for not clearing that up.

    @Melissa&JoeyFan

    It might, or it might not. There are ways of hiding it.

  • Jase

    @ mike

    I think last year’s RW may have soured some people on the RW concept a bit. Last night episode was great (quite the shocker imo), so that should help ratings going forward.

  • david

    Thanks to Amy for the Hollywood Heights ratings and thanks to Robert for breaking it down more for us. As i was thinking the maing demo for the show is people 12-17. Maybe after the olympics it will go back up.

  • RHONJd

    Nice to see E News doing well

  • Martin

    @Melissa&JoeyFan

    Well at least you know they are not going to write in in to the show anyway, it would probably look bad a pregnant Mel Burke chugging down bottles of wine.

  • Jared

    Melissa & Joey is a good show to get into syndication numbers. ABCFAMILY will renew this show most definitely.

  • zodd

    “Getting tired of all the 15 year olds on the comments talking about Nick and Disney”

    Sad thing is, there twice that age maybe even more.

  • zodd

    “Poor Futurama. I’m not sure why it got moved to Wednesday. In all honesty I think it would fit well with South Park. They could have an animation block. Especially since South Park probably will be done after its 20th season. I agree with who said that Futurama should be on Adult Swim. Which it really should because look at how well Family Guy and American Dad do on that network.”

    Yeah, it’s pretty bad. Even King of the Hill gets more ratings and same demo as Futurama does.

  • Chris O.

    Any info on Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated? Thanks! :-)

  • pinevalleylover

    Goooo Dallas! the show may not get the best ratings but i love the show so i hope it does better for its season finale next week.

  • pll fan

    Ouch at those Baby Daddy ratings! It started off strong, but hasn’t been doing too well over the last few weeks. Last night was probably the weakest night of the Olympics so far, so I really thought Baby Daddy and M&J would do pretty good. Guess not….

  • JJ

    @disney rocks
    how is it a horrible thing?

  • Nick

    I just noticed that The Olympics seem to target young-skewing shows more than older-skewing shows. Baby Daddy, Melissa & Joey, and Royal Pains got hit hard, but Dallas, The Soul Man, and The Exes stayed steady or grew.

  • MJDB

    @Nick

    Thank you, I’m sorry I must have been confusing the two. Thanks for the ratings!

  • toons

    zodd… one thing that even with it’s rating lower compared to last season… futurama is still one of the highest rated shows on comedy central… it’s not really fair to compare to other networks… comedy central doesn’t have a lot of shows that end up in the top ranking every day…

  • LB

    Regarding Dallas the advertising charges are based on Live Same Day which means it’s demo is 1.1 – the same holds true for Royal Pains. Last week Dallas demo was 1.0

  • LB

    @Nick Dallas gets a higher 18 – 49 demo than the shows you just mentioned with the exception being Royal Pains who it is usually around the same demo so your statement doesn’t make sense about older skewing. Personally it seems like every elderly person I know is glued to the Olympics all day!

  • Melanie

    Glad to see Dallas going up a tenth even though it has some tough competition from the Olympics. Not bad at all! Great episode and next week is the season finale!

  • disney rocks

    My guess as to why Fred:The Show is doing okay/decent ratings- It has a good lead-in, Spongebob reruns
