    Yay Shark Tank. :D

    Still decent for ANTM. Nikita down down down. :)

  • :D

    Shark Tank was good last night. Top Model was good as well.

  • Karin

    Touch? lol

  • Mark Wood

    Ok who would like to continue arguing about how Nikita’s ratings equal Hart of Dixie, SPN and VD?

  • John A

    Still not terrible for Top Model. Shark Tank doing really well

  • Mark Wood

    Top Model

    Last year 4th episode
    1.9 million viewers .8 adults

    So not terrible, but not anything to be happy about, and again this was its best outing versus multiple rerun programming, what happens when Fall really starts?

  • rob60990

    ^ NBC isn’t premiering their comedies until Oct 19 (which are both flops waiting to die). Only CSI NY remains and I doubt there’s much audience crossover there with that and ANTM.

  • Cory

    Nikita is already a flop so it doesn’t matter

  • robin

    @Mark Wood

    yeah but remember last year ANTM wasn’t on fridays

  • John A

    Nikita dont equal SPN and VD. VD got a 0.4 and SPN got a 0.3 this week. I dont want to start a battle but it dont equal those two.

  • Sid

    ABC dominating Fridays, good for them! CBS won’t stand a chance.

    @Mark Wood

    Can you be more annoying? No one cares that your a statistical analyst. Why don’t you leave the numbers to Bill and Robert and take your irritating behavior to a Supernatural forum?

  • Mark Wood


    That’s why i don’t say it’s a bad performance for Top Model, but it isn’t good, ie higher level of retention versus 5 other programs the CW has moved to Friday. And until the full season starts even harder to make real judgment values. The one plus is that it did hold its gain from lasts weeks original versus the rest of the networks cancer special.

  • Mark Wood


    Yes it would be exceedingly easy to be more insulting. I could personally attack, I could name call, I could through judgment about a shows quality. All are very. ASIC examples that occur on this sites forums that I truly strive to avoid.

    The idea that my use of statistical data is insulting to you, is rather shocking as this site isnt about are personal feelings good or bad about shows we love or even love to hate ( or anything between the two). It’s about their performance from ratings data.

  • omabin

    I was curious about this. Still very good for Top Model I think, it really is exceeding expectations. Also very good for Shark Tank, why ABC doesn’t premiere the comedies (which btw should be in a reverse order) at 9pm is behind me!

  • rob60990

    ABC should really rethink that.

  • John813

    Its annoying that Top Model keeps being adjusted down. Can you guys calculate the show’s ratings more better on Fridays so this won’t happen. It gets people’s hopes up for nothing.

  • Holly


    Bill and Robert have no control over the numbers. But there isn’t an error in the calculations. Preliminaries and finals are calculated differently. Overnights tell how many people are watching a given channel at a given time, which means they include all the viewer watching sports that pre-empted regular programing. The final numbers tell how many people watched a specific show. The finals are more accurate but take longer to calculate so people use the preliminary numbers in the meantime.

    Mitt Romney believes 130 million Americans are worthless and that is job is “NOT TO WORRY ABOUT THEM.”

    130 million Americans!

  • JR

    Hopefully Shark Tank will gold up well once new programming arrives opposite it.
