  • Matt

    BBT is a beast..

  • Joyce

    Surprised at some of these repeats of shows that make the list.

  • KarenM

    Good news for WC!

  • BJH

    Covert Affairs matched White Collar step-for-step. Happy :)

  • silvit

    To the user I was talking to last week about WC: its rating, 1.0 is the same rating it used to get when it had TNT competition. I think the spike in the ratings(1.2) has to do more with promos/promotion rather than anything else.

  • Joey

    Rizzoli and Isles was a repeat right??

  • panda22

    Covert beat WC in overall viewers but lost to WC by 0.1 in the demo.
    SOA is a beast!….great demo there, it’s skews heavily older adult but clearly alot of them under 49.

    Sorta miss PLL not being on the table each week.

  • Joey

    @Silvit I am not the person you were talking to lat week but I think the WC ratings were .9’s when against TNT but yeah it was around that.

  • KarenM

    Didn’t R&I kill WC in the competition? Considering that WC has no lead-in it does well overall but disappointing next to original R&I episodes.

  • silvit

    @panda22

    Heavily older adult? NCIS skew older, not SOA. SOA skew very young (see last week’s 18-34 rating)

    @Joey
    It used to get 0.9-1.0 or 1.1 against TNT competition in the summer.

  • silvit

    @KarenM

    A 0.1-0.2 more demo points is barely killing competition. WC does infinitely better than any TNT show in the 18-34 group.

  • KarenM

    @silvit, it used to do a lot better in the summer though, didn’t it?

  • silvit

    And WC has the same lead-in of every USA show and the respective TNT shows.

  • FlorianN

    I’m happy for Face Off.. Best score on 18-49 ratings this season I think. Alana is just the best.

  • KarenM

    Covert Affairs has the best lead-in actually.

  • silvit

    @KarenM

    Which show? WC? No, it used to get the same ratings (with the exception of last week when it was higher and the same thing happened some weeks ago).

  • silvit

    @KarenM

    Of course, 10 pm shows have the best lead-ins. I was talking about 9 pm shows. Sorry if it wasn’t clear. ;-)

  • The End

    Face Off is the highest rated Syfy show besides Wrestling.

  • Qi Luo

    WC down from last week’s 1.1. Still, pretty decent few weeks. 1.0 for the Alex episode; 1.1 for the boxing episode; 1.0 for m/s finale. I gotta admit though, last night’s ep was pretty weak compared to the previous season/mid-season finales where characters have been blown up, shot, kidnapped, etc. I dunno why, but Neal’s daddy issues doesn’t interest me as much as it excites the other viewers.

  • Mark Wilkins

    Tuesday is a good night for cable, no garbage reality shows in the top 10
