  • eric

    great total viewers for the closer but man does it skew a tad old

  • Tony JJ

    Teen Wolf was amazing!!! One of the best shows on television right now. and I can’t believe that it is on MTV!!!

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Alphas was absolutely terrific. The back story on Nina was very well done. And man, was I surprised when Nina went after Rachel in the club! That was very unexpected – and hot! :-) Hick’s save at the end was well done, too.

    Anyone else wishing Clay would get offed sooner rather than later? That guy is a major a*hole…

    All in all, Alphas second season continues to prove that it’s the best sci-fi show on the air, bar none.

    I should start in on Teen Wolf, I’ve been meaning to all last season.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Tom: While I agree with you that there is no “Summer Glau Curse” (which was originally the “Firefly Curse” until Nathan and Adam proved it wrong by being in shows running four seasons or more), I doubt Summer’s appearance will raise the ratings much. Guest stars don’t tend to do that unless they’re really major stars doing “stunt casting”.

    The problem with Alphas is that it’s just not the usual bogus sci-fi fare or fantasy crap like Warehouse 13 or Eureka or a space opera like Battlestar. Despite the superb writing, acting, directing, plots, engaging actors, and plausible premise – or perhaps because of them – people just don’t get it. It’s not pure escapist fare.

    Worse, it’s on SyFy whose reputation is lower than dirt concerning sci-fi at this point as a consequence of their stupid “reality” shows and crappy movies.

    I don’t expect the series to go beyond the current season, unfortunately. Hopefully they’ll wrap it up intelligently by the finale (and Summer will be in both episodes 12 and 13.)

  • The End

    @Richard Steven Hack

    On the brightside there’s always

    Ghost Hunters
    Ghost Hunters International
    Destination Truth
    Fact or Faked
    School Spirits
    Haunted Highways

    And one other, name escapes me

    7 Ghost esq shows that will still be on the air, whilst quality shows vanish.

  • Kissan

    Even though Bunheads is goin down, I bet u it’s still gonna get renewed. And with Secret Life also goin down a lot, I think when they come back there gonna announce it as the final season. Hope they don’t go below a million viewers. 1 more episode to go for Bunheads and 2 for Secret Life.

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Dora did really good at 7pm.! Lol..

    @Nick
    Can u post hollywood heights and degress ratings once u get them.? Thanks(:

    O and is there a way I can get or see the ratings so I wont ask u so many times lol.?(:

  • Nick

    Bunheads only went down 0.1 since its premiere. I think it’ll be renewed.
    Secret Life will probably get a final season of 13 eps. It’s not doing well enough to get a full 22 or a giant 30+ season like ABC Family likes to do.

  • BJH

    I think Bunheads would succeed at 8pm. Maybe ABCFamily should try it an hour earlier? Btw: wasn’t Gilmore Girls an 8pm show?

    Teen Wolf was top notch last night. Talk about a show surpassing its debut season. No sophomore slump here. It feels like the Vampire Diaries’ summer cousin.

    The Closer was touching and great as always. Good to see it receive the viewers/demo it deserves. I was so afraid it would nab only 6-7m. Major Crimes was decent, but needs some improvement. McDonnell needs a “Pope” to play against.

    Not surprised at Syfy numbers. TNT was all over the ratings last night. Still, Warehouse 13 barely slipped. This has now stepped into Eureka’s old spot. I stopped watching Alphas. It was OK, but I’ve simply lost interest. It appears some people stepped out as well.

  • Tom

    Kissan I hope you’re right but one of the unknowns is cost. Sutton Foster is a huge star on Broadway and I’m betting that ABC paid her a lot of money to try and transfer her brand to television. In fact, she cut short her contract to star on Broadway in “Anything Goes” by three weeks to start Bunheads. I doubt if she did that for loose change. However, the show isn’t going anywhere. That’s sort of the same situation the CW was in with Sarah Michelle Gellar on “Ringer”. So, the question is whether ABC is going to continue to pay Sutton Foster big bucks to front a show that isn’t working. We may get lucky and the show will get a back order. Personally, I believe that ABC could just as easily come up with a less expensive show that will draw at least as well as the mediocre to low ratings Bunheads gets.

  • Kaylie

    Bunheads rebounded a little from Secret Life. ABC Family may keep it. It does well on itunes. Secret Life needs to end, its ratings are falling flat. Hopefully S@B does good this fall.

    Teen Wolf was great last night. I hope the 20 episode order don’t drain out the shows ratings.

    WWE Raw should go back to 2-hours. If Love & Hip Hop didnt have it as competition, it’d rate higher.

  • I hate bunheads

    Bunheads is the dumbest show on the face of the earth.

  • david

    I was thinking Secret Life and Bun Heads would go back this week. Hopefully Bun Heads will go up for next week. Teen Wolf did good for its season two finalle. I to hope somebody has the Hollywood Heights ratings now on Teen Nick.

  • rob60990

    @Tom, I’m only kidding but actors appearances don’t really have much effect on tv shows like they use to.

    I have a lot of faith in Bunheads getting a 2nd chance. I think the show has some potential, maybe they should pair it with Switched at Birth.

  • Evan

    How did “Hollywood Heights” do on TeenNick Monday night?

  • Travis

    Hollywood Heights was a ratings bust on Nickelodeon. Primetime telenovelas don’t work for American TV. WWE should not be 3 hours.

  • Tom

    @Rob60990 I know you were kidding. I just had to maintain my standing among Geeks by defending Summer’s honor. Here’s the thing: Summer was only on one episode of Alphas last season. I have it running 24/7 as a continuous loop projected across the length of my rec room. SyFy has gone to some effort to advertise her recurring role in Alphas this season. That should put the majority of unwashed Geeks living in their mom’s basements on notice to watch. So, I seriously believe what I said about ratings going up.

    About Bunheads: IMHO the only way they would be able to boost ratings is to increase the pace of each episode. This show has a great premise. Its also frequently tedious. Of the nine aired episodes, maybe four have meaningfully advanced the storyline. That’s too much character development. However, I doubt if anyone can tell Amy Sherman Palladino to change her approach.

  • luisl

    Alphas is the best sci-fi series on the air. Too bad people don’t watch.

  • luisl

    I think this season was already filmed before it got to air, so I don’t think it will have a proper ending. And that sucks.

  • nikki

    Bunheads deserves a better lead in, secret life has sucked since the last half of last season and all this season. Its gunna end this year I think or hope anyways. And I think bunheads is awesome, but I was a gilmore fan so I like her style and all that. But it had steady ratings except for the last 2 weeks. It should get the pick up for the rest of the season, and then once that happens the ratings will pick up and it will shine. ASP is awesome at what she does, the show is good. It was really good last night, idk why the ratings aren’t better. It needs time.. I love it. I hope it sticks around. With jane gone (thank god) there’s only secret life, pll, and bunheads. For drams if they get rid of bunheads what we will get another comedy. No thanks!
