  • Cory

    Is Nanny on NAN sitcom with Fran Drescher, if it is, very good performance.

  • Survivor Fan

    Is that low for The Challenge?

  • Dan T

    Do you have the half-hour breakdown for The Challenge for its 90 minutes?

  • Cody

    @Survivor Fan

    Compared to the last 2 Challenges, it is quite low.

  • Dan T

    Regarding The Challenge, it aired against the Big Brother finale. Very similar audiences.

  • Jared

    I’m not sure what MTV would have considered good for The Challenge..but those numbers..viewers wise..seems very low..but the demo is on par with what Teen Wolf was getting..so I wouldn’t consider it a total bust.

  • MJDB

    @Cory

    Indeed it is, it did better than original episodes of Happily Divorced (not to talk bad about that show I love that as well).

  • Mon

    Nice to see CSI: NY make the list a few times per week. It’s dark/gritty tone is perfect for late-night. The Mentalist is trending upwards, slowly. It will be interesting how Castle does next Wednesday. NCIS is a beast, what else is new? There is a show called China, IL? LOL! What is it about?

  • Survivor Fan

    @ Dan T

    Good point, I actually forgot about it last night, as it was caught up in the Survivor/ BB excitement.

  • guy

    Sorry to see low ratings for Challenge—I thought it rocked. GREAT drama (as usual)….GO BIG EASY!!

  • vin

    Are those good numbers for south beach tow

  • Dan T

    Reason I asked about the half-hour breakdown is because the last half-hour aired after BB, so I’m wondering if it was a big uptick.

  • Mr Mikey

    The challenge sucks just like much of Mtv’s other programming.

  • Mon

    I meant *Its

  • Rich

    A “Big Bang Theory” repeat beat a new Honey Boo Boo? Please let that continue.

  • Mon

    I watch Honey Boo Boo… on The Soup!!!

  • Christian

    Only 1.1 for The Challenge? WTF is going on with MTV!?!? I’m so upset right now!

  • Survivor Fan

    @ Christian
    No, it got a 0.7

  • Dan T

    Honey Boo Boo hurting MTV too?

  • Jared

    All of the shows on MTV are extremely dated..and the numbers show that. Awkward is the only exception.
