  • Julia

    Good for Awkward! Can’t wait for Season 3

  • jt

    mtv needs to give awkward it’s own night.

  • Jordan

    Wilfred?

  • iMember

    And Awkward ends with a SEASON HIGH and crosses the 2 mil mark once again! I couldn’t be happier. The finale last night was just about perfect. MTV really has a gem with this show and I’m so happy that it finds the success it does.

    I can’t wait for Season 3 next year! It’s going to be sooo good. Now that the love triangle is over, and the theme for next season will be “Who do I want to be” it’s going to be a lot of fun.

  • Mark

    It shows how popular football is when almost seven million people watch a laugher like last night’s game.

  • Michael

    Uh oh, RHOM didn’t increase AT ALL!

  • BH @ TV Recaps/Reviews

    I’m surprised Wilfred didn’t make the list since it was its season finale.

  • MattM

    Wilfred and Louie must do amazing DVR numbers for them to have already been renewed. Next season will probably be their last though.

  • iMember

    Did MTV release a PR about Awkward.’s finale since it reached a new season high? I love it when a quality show and well written [hilarious] comedy like Awkward. does great!

  • Brandy

    Third time Awkward hit over 2 millions viewers this season, and it hit a season high. MTV definitely has a hit on it’s hands. Teen Wolf is a great show, but it’s nice that Awkward finished three points higher then Teen Wolf did.

  • bb

    On the bright side RHOM didn’t go down too much and plus the repeat is in the top 100 this week which makes the audience 1.8 million total, and I think it will increase next week, tons of drama next week.

  • Michael

    Brandy, Awkward always performs better than Teen Wolf.

  • Michael

    @BB, I think they show way too many repeats in one night. I think it would benefit the show in the long run, for Bravo to only show it 2-3 times. Last night, the episode aired like 5 times in a row lol.

  • Jared

    @imember

    I couldn’t agree with you anymore when saying Awkwards season finale couldn’t have been anymore perfect. The writing..acting..direction was spot on and left any questions which might have remained answered. I can’t wait to see where Awkward season 3 takes us considering how every characters storyline has been wrapped up. Definitely looking forward to next season hopefully sooner than later. MTV has a quality half hour here.

  • Melanie

    Not looking too good so far for the RHOM. Hope they pick up and soon. This season looks really exciting and I am enjoying the new additions to the cast.

  • THE OLD MAN

    NFL @ 3.0. Wonder how that would affect Jersey Shore

  • brentpo

    Oh, Wilfred.

  • Matt

    Bravo should cancel RHOM pronto

    and Awkward was great!!!! and btw everyone, not a season high. the season high was 2.19 million, not 2.17 as the finale got

  • iMember

    @Matt We’re talking about the Adult 18-49 rating. The numbers that really count. Awkward got a 1.1 which is a new season high! :)

  • MJDB

    Come on Wilfred, you’re a great show!!!

    Also @MattM

    Louie was renewed so far, but Wilfred is yet to be.
