    Wow OWN is getting better. I hope more people watch OWN because it your life OWN it.

  • Nick

    Yikes! Sorry about that Stefan, for some reason I posted the 9/1 numbers again rather than 9/8. These are the correct figures:

    WWE Saturday Morning Slam (CW, 9/8)
    -10 AM: 0.928 million viewers, 0.37 A18-49

    I’d have to pull some more data to see how that ranks in the timeslot but would have to imagine the CW is happy with this considering only the 9:30A Justice League performed better, and not by much (1.000 million viewers, 0.38 A18-49).

  • Bryan

    @Nick – Thanks for all the Nick/Disney XD numbers! Would it be possible to post ratings for “Spectacular!” on Saturday 9/15 at 8pm on Nickelodeon? Thanks! :)

  • Ike

    @Nick, thanks for posting Doctor Who numbers.

  • Kaylie

    Awesome for Good Luck Charlie, Married to Jonas and OWN :)

  • Stefan

    @Nick
    Thanks for your answer and the numbers!

    and I have one more question:
    Is there a chance, that you could add Saturday Morning Slam to your weekly rating post?

  • Famous Gary C

    After two episodes of Breaking Amish what are it’s chances for renewal ??? Thought i would give the show a shot as i live near an Amish community in Lewis County in upstate Ny .

  • Chris

    HOW is stable, but at such a low number. This isn’t Mad Men, which rakes in the Emmys, or Breaking Bad, which wows the critics. And The Walking Dead has gotten AMC accustomed to the idea that they can actually make money with scripted shows.

    HOW is clearly as big as it’s ever going to be, and it’s not a cheap show to make. It’ll get more expensive every time they renew it. It brings them nothing they don’t already have. They should seriously consider cancellation.

  • Famous Gary C

    Chris were you commenting to me ?

  • Jonathan

    The Kardashian’s are still as popular as ever!! The finale was great!

  • Nick

    @Bryan – the Spectacular movie had 1.160 million viewers and a .24 A18-49 rating.

    @Stefan – will do!

  • Jared

    If Breaking Amish can keep up it’s ratings..I would say chances for renewal are pretty good..considering there’s more of a story to tell after this current one.

  • Famous Gary C

    Thanx Jared !!!

  • Famous Gary C

    You watch it Jared ??
    .. curious ?

  • Yep

    “HOW is clearly as big as it’s ever going to be”

    @Chris

    Agreed. Something not taken into consideration with the posted numbers are the live views vs DVR. Anson Mount said on his Twitter that they’re not pulling good numbers for the former, but making up for it with the latter. Not sure how much AMC cares about that distinction. Also, note that AMC decided to cram the final two episodes together (Oct 7) to make way for The Walking Dead premiere on October 14. HoW is not exactly being treated like it matters to them.

  • Famous Gary C

    Doctor Who is a hidden gem for me that always passed my by … as a sucker for genre fare i figured i would watch it from the beginning of this season ….have to admit it’s a very addictive show. Doctor who has gained this viewer for life that’s for sure.

  • Kaylie

    This goes to show you My Babysitters a Vampire should be on Sundays. 2.19 million viewers on Friday vs 2.83 million viewers on Sunday.

  • OWN Fan

    OMG!!!!!
    OWN average 1 million viewers over the weekend! Get it Oprah! It’s only been a year and a half! Can you believe. #BAM!

  • OWN Fan

    And OWN was a Top 5 cable network BOTH nights on Saturday and Sunday. Really phenomenal.

  • OWN Fan

    @Nick, what was the ratings for ‘Super Soul Sunday’. Press release said it was the highest rating ever. Good weekend for OWN. :)
