  • elliotness

    Everytime i look at these cable lists, it is almost always Family Guy or Big Bang leading. Other than NFL days.

  • Sara

    Are there any rating for Hollywood Heights on TeenNick at 8pm for Mon, Tues, Wed?

  • Ram510

    Well at least The Challenge started better than that boring St. Thomas season

    I hope Awkward reaches a new high tonight, GO AWKWARD!!!!

  • Chucho

    I have a doubt.
    At 12 am in USA Networks was White Collar (in the guide) but in the list appear Royal Pain.
    So the guide was wrong?
    Please somebody answer.

  • AppleStinx

    ‘Restaurant Impossible’ did well. Tom Bury is a perfect sidekick, and out of their many interior decorators Taniya Nayak is the best.

    ‘Restaurant Stakeout’ is a huff-and-puff version of ‘Mystery Diners’ also on Food Network not long ago. Entertaining, but whoever thought that screen jitter is a cute special effect, should be fired. The thing can give me more headache than fast-moving “amateur” camerawork. Fortunately I know when it’s coming so there’s time to look away.

  • sorry

    actuall real world st thomas ot 1.2mil better than the challenge1.1m

  • JayTN

    “The Challenge: Battle of the Exes” (the last installment of “The Challenge”) averaged between 1.8 and 2.3 million viewers. All but one episode was in the 1.8-1.9 million viewer range. The 18-49 rating was between 1.1 and 1.4 for the season.

    The numbers for “Battle of the Seasons” is below every “Battle of the Exes” episode, with the exception of the post-finale reunion, which scored 1.08 million viewers and a 0.6 demographic rating.

  • bluelp85

    The reason this season of The Challenge is so low is that they relied to heavily on the new kids from the latest Real World seasons. They have no personality, I rather see the veterans continue to play season after season (mixing them up of course), kicking out the new rookies in the first couple challenges. Hopefully next season (if they have one) they have a better concept.

  • Chris

    Royal Pains is down over a million viewers and three tenths of a percentage point in the demo from its 2011 summer finale.

    The new direction is not working out.

    I just can’t watch that show anymore.

  • Dan T

    Bluelp85, you’re in the vast minority. People are tired of it being The Real World Key West/Fresh Meat I Challenge.

  • PJM

    @Chris the majority of USA Network shows are down that much or more this season. Given RP is only behind Burn Notice and Suits in ratings (and almost tied Burn Notice the week of its finale), I think Royal Pains is safe.

    Although I do think TVBtN really needs to update the picture. Jill Flint isn’t on the show anymore.

  • Tyler

    Wow. Friends gets better ratings 8+ years after it’s off the air and on Nick at Nite than the CW gets for regular episodes.

  • ge pf

    Royal Pains picked up speed down the stretch. Hope Hank doesn’t mess up latest love. Good flow w/ Hanks Bro being more mature, glad blood test for his hot wife to be was negative. Good TV mindless entertainment. I like Boris – hope his minutes on show increase.

    Bring back Franklin & Bash, its really funny….

  • John A

    And shows always bleed viewers each season Royal Pains is no different.

  • xwiseguyx

    Restaurant Stakeout is gold for the SNL treatment.. that Willie guy is such a caricature – it’s very unbelievable but entertaining…

  • senor chang

    any numbers for The Soup?

  • Chris

    I’m not saying RP is going to get canceled. I’m saying that these drops in the ratings are directly related to deterioration of the shows in question, and that they will continue. RP doesn’t have as much of a safety margin, and I think it’s going to fall even faster when it returns, unless they fix it soon. I think the producers would like it to run as long as Burn Notice, but I just don’t see that happening. For all intents and purposes, that show is dead.

  • sdgfds

    Not good for the Jake Saves Bucky Special. I was expecting 2.5-3 million, since they did advertise this quite a bit since it was a special ep.
