    Poor Wilfred and Louie. I’m glad FX values quality over stupidity and gave both another season but damn those are some low ratings. NFL took a chunk out of everything it seems.

  • Aerilyn

    Gooooo Awkward.! MTV’s underrated gem and one of the best comedies on television today.

    So happy to see Awkward. rise from the Snooki & JWOWWW’s lead in. That is fantastic! And it held really steady compared to last week too.

    I can’t wait for next week’s episode. It’s going be intense given the cliffhanger at the end of this week’s episode. And from the creator’s tweet to Molly Tarlov, it seems Season 3 is going to be even better next year!

  • Twist Of Fate

    Great rerun numbers for Spongebob and Fairly Odd Parents. Both around 3 million. Can’t wait for the new seasons.

  • Oliver

    Rebound for Anger Management vs last week (0.7), likely due to Martin Sheen guest starring.

    Wilfred and Louie are fine. They’re dirt cheap.

  • Matt

    Awkward is such a great show. If any of you arent currently watching it, you all should start!!

    Suits was really good last night too!

  • Jared

    Last nights episode of AWKWARD was great…One of the funniest..wittiest comedies on TV..next weeks episode is gonna be epic..cant wait!..

  • Mr Mikey

    Football oh yes football is back. The NFL shall now take over Thursday nights.

  • SMP Belltown

    I’m not too hep on the process of sorting through cable ratings for single events.

    But did yesterday’s cable coverage of the USA gold medal-winning soccer match against Japan actually do better in the TV ratings than the pre-season pro football opener? (4.35 million and 2.74 vs. 3.386 million and 1.4 18-49.)

  • Jenny

    Awkward and Teen Wolf have held steady against the Olympics, so MTV has got to be pleased.Now that The Olympics are gone next week I’m wondering if Awkward will go above a 0.8 next week. MTV should air an episode of Awkward after the MTV Movie Awards the ratings would be huge, and it could give the show even more exposure. They wasted it last year on the weak I Just Want My Pants Back.

  • Tom

    I can’t get enough of Awkward. This program packs more entertainment into 20 minutes than any comedy on television. Every character is portrayed brilliantly. One of the real treats is watching Tamara (Jillian Rose Reed)keep losing it over her ex-boyfriend. I just love her rants. So, thanks for giving us a 20 episode renewal MTV.

  • David Ec

    Perhaps I’m being overly optimistic, but I think the Olympics are what is killing FX’s Thursday line-up. Wilfred was at 1.3 million before they started and Louie was at least hovering around 1 million. Even though Louie already has a renewal, less than 800,000 viewers seems like a disaster.

  • brent

    @David Ec

    I hope so, man. Seriously, I can’t understand these rating. Louie and Wilfred are best shows on TV.

  • responder

    Louis is dirt cheap. Wilfred aint.

  • The End

    Aha. Guess I was right that some Nielsen viewers elected to watch the Olympics over Anger Management last week, but some came back due to losing interest in said Olympics. Expecting next weeks numbers to be over a 1.0, probably 1.2.

  • The End

    @David Ec

    Careful. Some mindless drone will come along and spout the Fan excuse Bingo at you, like they tried and failed to do to me, as my points raised were valid and proven correct.

  • brent

    @responder

    Exactly. I think Wilfred’s renewal is on danger. Louis CK doing all jobs, directing, writing, producing, acting. It has 300,000 budget with that.

    Other hand, Wilfred’s Jason Gann’s salary was 200,000 who has created, acted, wrote for the show. With writers room, starring actors and big name Elijah Wood. I imagening over a million.

    I love the show, but i’m feeling it will be canceled.

  • Kaylie

    1) The MTV Video Music Awards are on Thursday this year. They should air an episode of Awkward after it and an episode of Snooki & Jwoww before it. That would help the show get more exposure.

    2) Spongebob and Fairly Odd Parents are doing so well in repeats. Its so sad that thats the only thing and Victorious keeping Nickelodeon running strong. The most recent episode of BTR garnered only 1.4 million total viewers. Nickelodeon needs those iCarly spinoffs fast!

  • Nadine

    Dynamite episode of Suits last night. Wow, this show is absolutely riveting — compulsively watchable.

  • Ram510

    AWKWARD!!!!!! Last night was the best episode since the Asian episode. Hope it continues for the last 2 episodes of the season

  • Aerilyn

    @Ram510 Last two episodes of the season? AWKWARD still has 5 more episodes to go this season!!
