    What are the ratings for My Babysitter’s a Vampire that aired at 7:30? Someone PLEASE find out and get back to me! Thanks.

  • ZmaX

    awesome ratings for Gravity Falls :D

    great episode! it finally revealed why that mysterious man w/ the goggles was in the background of all the previous episodes. Love that the show actually has continuity through out the season’s story arcs.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Amanda Kondolojy

    @Jamie Rotch

    It’s in the table. Search for “My Babysitters”

  • Jamie Rotch

    @Robert @Amanda

    Oh never mind, I see the ratings for ‘Vampire’ now, it’s under “My Babysitters”. Considering this isn’t a Disney original and has no major promotion (like Gravity Falls), it does fairly well.

  • Irish Townie

    bering sea gold is awesome man..i love that group of buddies toughin it out that had a good first week

  • One

    I almost dread to think what the Strike Back ratings are going to be once we finally see them. I also wonder what the bottom barrier is for Cinemax, since they don’t have any other primetime originals yet. (also since it’s a co-pro w/ BSkyB in Britian, and from what I understand it does fairly well for them there)

  • Jamie Rotch

    @Amanda @Robert
    Do you guys have the numbers for the last My Babysitter’s a Vampire episode that aired (on August 10th, 7:30PM)?

  • disney rocks

    Great numbers for Disney all-around! All were great episodes!

    Is that a season high for A.N.T Farm?

  • Ryan Stoppable

    Good to see “Phineas and Ferb” and “Gravity Falls” continuing their strong trends – the highest total viewership in nearly a year for the former, and just off the series high for the latter.

  • disney rocks

    Wonderful for Gravity Falls, P&F, and Jessie. Also really good for ANT Farm and decent for MBAV. Disney has a great night!

    Also, i check wikkipedia, last night was a season high for ANT Farm.

  • disney rocks

    Also, It’s good to see ID numbers in the list. Great channel!

  • Nick

    Any #s for XIII on ReelzChannel? Thanks.

  • Nick

    If MBaV continues its ratings, will it be renewed?

  • Atmos

    I wonder about Cinemax’s basement levels for Strike Back too. I know that last season averaged a little less than 300,000 viewers per episode, and last week had about 400,000. I asssume that the number of people who subscribe to Cinemax is well below that of HBO, so hopefully, between the US and Great Britain, Strike Back’s numbers are at least meeting expectations. Then again, I love the show, so I’m being optimistic.

  • Kaylie

    Beautiful night for Disney. All their episodes were really good & had great plots. So happy Jessies back at the ratings they started out with.

  • Jon23812

    Horray for Gravity Falls. I hope it gets renewed for a second season.

  • Jon23812

    @Nick, Well, the show is made in Canada, so, if the ratings in Canada are good, then it should.

  • Jamie Rotch

    @Nick @Jon23812 Actually Teletoon (Canada) renewed My Babysitter’s a Vampire a season 2 after Disney finished airing season 1, they (Canada) had never aired the first season until January 2012.

    Teletoon and Disney likely do business in their own rights. Vanessa Morgan said via Twitter that Teletoon wants to do another movie and two more seasons at least. It’d air in Canada, the question is what Disney chooses to do.

    MBaV rates fairly well for an adapted series that Disney pays little-to-no attention to promotional wise. I think if Disney treated it “equal”, it’d rate at LEAST how A.N.T. Farm does.

    The MBaV reason premiere skyrocketed, but Disney keeps shifing the series around, confusing the fans. And in September, some episodes will air NEW on Sundays in the Shake It Up & Good Luck Charlie time slots — Disney is rushing season 2 of MBav off air for some odd ball reason, it’d be wise for them to “creep” the season out with October/Halloween coming around the corner.

    I’m not a fan of Gravity Falls, but those are pretty good numbers, Nickelodeon could take a lesson from Gravity Falls & P&F when it comes down to animation. Spongebob sucks now, but it’s Nick’s highest rated program in general, which says something.

  • MTB

    Any numbers on “Outlaw Country” FX show?

  • Nick

    Outlaw Country (FX) –

    0.2 rating, 0.620 million viewers
