  • Nadine

    What a spectacular episode of Suits it was, too! Bravo, Suits!

  • Twist Of Fate

    Well, the Big Bang Theory has been going up in the viewers. Glad to see it making 3 million. Also, good for Family Guy and Spongebob, but 3 million is quite normal for them.

  • Aerilyn

    Awkward is doing REALLY good and last night’s episode was just gripping with a gut-wrenching cliffhanger at the end. I definitely believe it’ll cross the 2 million mark and keep climbing like it did least season. It has now MATCHED its Season 2 premiere number in the 18-49 demo, which is great.

    It’s definitely growing out of Snooki and JWOWW thankfully. I couldn’t be happier for Awkward!

  • Noelle

    Yay for Awkward! I can’t wait for next week. It should be the best episode yet this season.

  • Ram510

    AWKWARD!!!!!!! Past 2 weeks have been awesome!!!!

    Can’t believe Suits beat Burn Notice by that much, it’s not even that good

    And who’s watch Sullivan and Son? Can’t believe it’s still getting a .9 at this point

  • Max

    I have a question for those with a good memory.

    Is Snooki and JWOWW doing better, same, or worse than Pauly D’s Jersey Shore spinoff? I don’t remember at all what types of numbers his show did but IMO, Snooki and JWOWW is much more enjoyable 30min show than Pauly D was.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Well, Sullivan and Son couldn’t hold it’s Big Bang Theory lead-in (not suprised).

  • MattM

    These cable shows are doing much better than I anticipated. Especially the TBS shows. The fact that they’re even close to holding the BBT lead in is good news for original programming on the network.

  • Matt

    @max snooki and jwoww is doing better

  • Matt

    Happy for Suits…last nights episode was one of the best!!!

    and also great for awkward. praying it will climb over the 2 million mark next week!

  • James

    Sullivan and Son is doing good for TBS. 0.9 with 2.4 M viewers? That is good. On par with Men at Work.

  • silvit

    @Ram510

    It’s still getting 0.9 because it had TBBT with 1.2 at 9:30.

  • toons

    looks like anger management is gonna be getting that 90 episode pick up. when you think about it… in a year and a half sheen got out of a show he didn’t want to be on and that clearly had run it’s course… has a new show committed for 100 eps… got away from being type cast as charlie on “men”, has roles in 2 upcoming movies, changed his public image and still made tons of money from his men settlement and the new gig…

    without that blow up last year he would be languishing on men and no one would be talking about him…

    like him or not… brilliant

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Looking forward to Burn Notice’s summer finale next week – preview looked good.

  • Mon

    Let me guess. The Burn Notice summer finale is going to be another cliffhanger? This is torture.

  • jroche

    Any word on IFC’s Bullet in the Face?

    It’s seemed really under promoted

  • Dillan

    Snooki and Jwoww is doing quite good in the demo.

  • Michael

    It seems like Awkward does a lot better than Teen Wolf for MTV!

  • Judy912

    Count me as another viewer that says Bravo for ‘Suits’! It was one fantastic episodes. Next weeks finale episodes of ‘Burn Notice’ and ‘Suits’ are going to be OUTSTANDING!!

  • matty

    Why wouldn’t Awkward do better than Teen Wolf? It’s a much better show. I’m sick and tired of all this vampire and wolf crap and seems like the rest of america is too
