    Will FNC be number 1 in primte-time average viewers next week?

  • AppleStinx

    @Hillbilly

    FNC is always a good candidate to be #1 or 2 until they run into their weekend ratings. :wink:

  • Hillbilly

    @AppleStinx

    I’m predicting the convention coverage will make them number 1. That’s based on the link you provided for the 2008 coverage. If I’m wrong its your fault. :razz:

  • Jason

    How come the Bravo press releases always take about how great the channel does in 18-49 when it is consistently near the bottom in these charts? It’s 2nd to last in the chart above.

  • VH1

    @Jason

    This Chart is out of 99 channel. They only put the top 25 up

    USA Has some of the best summer TV shows: Suits (best show on TV) N. Roughness, Royal Pains, B Notice, Covert Affairs are entertaining – have a plot. With Franklin and Bash – Riz & Isles – I do not watch network TV. I even like Longmirer. I watch the reruns over and over all these shows.
