    Necessary Roughness drops even further when the other USA shows are on the rise, unfortunately it’s not gonna get a 3rd season like this…

  • matty

    Best thing on tv yesterday was the Little League WS

  • Michael

    Hopefully, next week’s wedding season finale episode of Melissa and Joey will rise!

  • Kaylie

    Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy :)

  • Jared

    The fact that Honey Boo Boo won the night makes me crack up..lol

  • Ram510

    I hope Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy can reach at least a .7 next week

  • silvit

    @Jared

    It just makes me weep.

  • Connman

    @silvit

    I agree – truely sad.

  • Nadine

    Good for RP, though. Weird episode — very episodic. We want Boris!!!!

  • Tom

    @ Cyrax You’re absolutely right. They changed the whole format of Necessary Roughness for season 2 and ended up creating a series of tedious subplots within the main story. The kids have pretty much vanished and the patient’s problems now get resolved in 10 minutes or less. The rest is about football. It’s really sad. I’ll miss Callie Thorne though.

  • Nick

    Sad at Melissa & Joey for going down. Hope it gets 0.7 or even a season high 0.8 for the finale.

  • Kev

    I’m surprised Royal Pains is still doing so good, maybe it’s just me but it’s kinda lost its “wow” factor and there’s nothing gripping about it that makes me wanna watch every week anymore. So episodic now instead of the way it used to be eh.

  • Ben

    Anyone have numbers for The Exes? Thanks.

  • Dan

    Honey Boo Boo is my favorite reality show on TV. Every time she opens her mouth she has something funny to say. The family may not be refined but they are fun to watch. You will not see any back stabbing, fighting, jealousy, yelling or disrespectful behavior on this show which unfortunately is the norm now on reality tv.

  • rob60990

    People seriously watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo? The show is an absolute trainwreck.

  • BJH

    Those numbers for necessary roughness bode well for Common Law. CL nabbed 0.6 demos with two-thirds of NRs audience. And it was on a Friday.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Go Honey Boo Boo! The show is entertaining! Hope it can maintain those ratings!

    Let loose and stop being all sassy about how the show is a trainwreck or how it’s disgusting. It’s funnier than some of those cheesy sitcoms other networks air..

  • fernando

    congrats Honey Boo Boo, its a funny show and theres nothing wrong with the family, they are good people, they just true rednecks thats all.

  • Martin

    Hey, saw the Exes ratings and only 15,000 viewers behind The Soul Man and it has a higher amount of people in the A18-49 demographic that watched it, still a 0.3 but higher amount of people.

  • John A

    Why are ABC Family more leniant with comedys? If dramas had a 0.5-0.6 they might be cancelled.
