  • JWOWW

    TNA > WWE

  • Hugh

    Surprised the viewers are disapearing for Louie. The show is great. Luckily we have a S4 renewal. Hopefully the viewers come back when Anger Management comes back.

  • Colin

    Lol, Snooki & JWOWW ratings wasn’t bad. A 0.6 is bad for MTV… Snooki & JWOWW usually top 2 of the night and #1 reality show

  • Ike

    Anybody got numbers for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell?

    If it’s not doing better than Russell Brand’s awful, awkward, horrible show, then there’s no justice in the TV universe. :P

  • William

    Pretty sure Wilfred is done after the last 2 weeks ratings, especially after Louie was re-newed already

  • Miliania

    Really not that surprised at Housewives of Miami. It faced a lot of competition with the AGT finale, X-Factor second night premiere, and Glee. I think it will start out the way Housewives of NY started this year, slow but eventually the ratings will absolutely go up because the drama looks very intense, especially for a Housewives franchise. The question is whether it will go up enough?

  • John A

    FX would be a complete joke without Sons of Anarchy. Anger Mgt Numbers are weak but it did repeat well for FX so it might do well syndication. Honestly why renew Louie? 0.2 is just awful no matter how cheap the show is.

  • Melanie

    Ouch at the Real HW of Miami premiere! I enjoyed the show and also liked last season, although it is the lowest rated out of all of the housewives franchises. Looks like some interesting additions to the cast and Mama Elsa is always fun. Even the DC one was higher rated and it got cancelled after the first season. I even liked the DC ladies, except for the Salahi twit.

  • vin

    is those numbers for impractical jokers good

  • MJDB

    I’m a little bit worried about Wilfred. It has been consecutively getting 0.3s and 0.4s for weeks now, and it is not as cheap as that dumb-a-s Louie that is also a ratings loser, but a critical goldmine. It sucks in my opinion. Also, Two and a Half Men FX syndicated reruns with Ashton Kutcher didn’t even make the list. Charlie always does, WINNING!

  • Matt

    MTV will be fine….they do need more programming to expand their ratings but Teen Mom 2 ranks higher than 1 did so that will be good, and they are coming out with a Teen Mom 3…plus Teen Wolf will be back in January and Jersey Shore should do well 5-6 million range

  • Jared

    Wilfreds such a niche show that I can’t see it lasting more than 2-3 seasons…no matter how good the show is..or how much critical acclaim it receives.

  • Dave

    The thing about Louie is that his show is so cheap that they could put it on at midnight or 2am and probably still make money. Plus the DVR ratings would still be good.

  • brentpo

    Enough with this Louie is cheap. Yeah, maybe it is. It has 300k for an episode.

    Ok, Wilfred’s creator, writer, lead actor and producer Jason Gann only took 195k for whole first season. I think it is a official number, because of that assault or whatever.. Anyway, Wilfred isn’t that expensive then. Ok, they have staff writer and regular cast. Other hand Louie does original music every week and because segments are so different, it changes a lot of location. That cost a lot. I mean, Wilfred was shooting in one day different scenes from 3-4 episode. That’s how much it costs.

    Louie is cheaper than Wilfred. I understand. I don’t think there it’s too much.

  • wonderworld

    Real Housewives of Miami was supposed to come on at 10 first before they changed it to 9.

    Do you guys have ratings for the 10:15 rerun immediately after the 9pm premeire?

  • david

    good to see Awkward up in the ratings. I love that the TNT morning line up showed up too from 8 am to 12 pm. Interesting how all the shows got just abuve 700,000 viewers. TNT has a great morning line up. I would say Charmed is my favorite show of all of thoughs than Super Natural and i just started watching R and I over the summer some and its ok. I hope the move to Wednesday nights on the CW and TNT repeating the show in the morning who should be geting season seven of the show soon. Because its coming out on DVD on Tuesday. I hope that helps the show to get new viewers to the new season over on the CW.

  • Jenny

    @Matt

    Where did you read that Teen Wolf was returning in January or are you just speculating?
