    Those 2.3+ million people that watch that trash of a show, HONEY BOO BOO, need to have their TV taken from their homes. Such garbage.

  • Nick

    @John A
    Because comedies are cheaper.

  • Den

    White Collar in tougher time slot and rockin the same ratings as Royal, excellent!

  • cece

    How come the Style Network ratings for Gossip Girl aren’t here?

    How come the Style Network ratings for Gossip Girl aren’t here?

    “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. “

  • Nick

    @cece

    TvBytheNumbers only gets the top 100 shows of the day in Adults 25-54, which they then order by Adults 18-49 rating. If the Gossip Girl repeats did not make the top 100 list, you won’t find them here, unless Style Network issues a press release or someone else finds them and posts them in the comments, which is highly unlikely because it wasn’t a new episode.
    I know that was a really long sentence, but who cares? :-D

  • Nick

    … I see I’m seven minutes late :-D

  • Kyle32

    Dare I ask what is a Honey Boo Boo?

  • pll fan

    Somewhat disappointed in those ratings for both Baby Daddy and M&J. I really thought both would get at least a 0.6 demo, with around 1.5 million viewers. Both shows started out very strong back in June. Since then, neither have looked real hot.

  • KMS

    Poor Necessary Roughness. I loved that show the first season, but while some of the clients were more interesting this season, they focused on story arcs and subplots that just were not. This most recent episode was a big improvement in focus, pace, and writing, but it looks like no one was still around to see it. It is coming back in the winter with at least 5 more episodes. Maybe if USA promotes it right and puts it in a good time slot, it will recover some viewers.

  • Nick

    @Kyle32

    Honey Boo Boo was a star of Toddlers and Tiaras who got her own tv series.

    Read that, and reflect on the state of TV today. :-(

  • jim

    Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is hysterical. Everyone dogging it just thinks they are so far above them. I think that little girl is a riot.

  • Jared

    @John A

    Its true that comedies are cheaper to produce..but I also think ABCF is trying to build up there comedy block and both M&J and Baby Daddy have been series that show potential for growth.

  • Jenny

    @John A

    As others have stated comedies are usually cheaper to produce, but also ABC Family have struggled with finding comedies that even get decent ratings and they want to create a strong comedy block. Their comedies being on par is a good thing.

  • arial2

    Re Honey Boo Boo as number one: once more, the viewers need to feel smarter than somebody wins out over quality television. Get some self-confidence, people!

  • silvit

    @arial2

    Isn’t it the same reason why people watch silly sit-coms and same old same old procedurals? I can’t believe people watch this kind of stuff because they think they are watching something smart or realistic. At least I hope.

  • d

    ok

    @Avery16

    You’l be pleased to know it’s not 2.3 million actual people watching.
