    What did MAD on Cartoon Network receive?

  • Michael

    RIP Real Housewives Of Miami!

  • bb

    Okay I’m thinking they should move Real Housewives of Miami till 10, this season is truely great, and I think so many people bated the 1st season that they don’t want to watch this season even though oits a lot better. I mean with the 2 airings it did pretty good, so I’m thinking if they moved it to 10 the first run would get like 1.3 and a 0.6, and I think that it will eventually go higher when the drama really starts.

  • Michael

    @BB, people just aren’t interested in this cycle of Miami housewives. Bravo made sure to advertised the promo filled with drama, so people can tune in this week. It simply didn’t work.

  • ElliotNess

    So happy on Football days. Not only do i enjoy the games but i also enjoy it dominating the ratings over all this trash that’s on tv. Death to reality tv!

  • DomCA25

    I’m really sad RHOM is doing bad its so good. I can’t stand the direction RHONJ has gone this is such a breath of fresh air.

  • romo

    The 1st TNF sentence is all wrong:

    TNF had a 3.0 last week not 3.8.

    TNF had a 3.3 last nite not 3.0.

  • Melanie

    @DomCA25, Agreed. I too am enjoying the Miami Housewives and wish it could get more of an audience. I also got tired of the issues with the New Jersey Housewives this year. I haven’t found this past season any fun to watch and probably won’t watch the reunion. I don’t like to see them fighting with Teresa, when they all used to be so close, especially her and Jacqueline. It is sad to see that relationship deteriorate.

  • Parker

    Real Housewives of Miami just is dull. Most franchises the city plays the ultimate character…NYC is cool, NJ is dramatic, Beverly Hills is luxurious…. what is Miami really? Just isn’t interesting.

    The second thing was that there are seven housewives, when the average Bravo viewer can’t even name one. Beverly Hills just this season will have seven housewives, but its a hit franchise and can do so. Miami (if they even had to do an edition), should of just had five housewives.

  • Jesse

    Let’s be truthful here, Real Housewives Miami is low because it’s spanish people.

  • Ram510

    Louie #’s?

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Romo. Yikes. Fixed

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    Louie 10-10:35p = 0.2 A18-49 and 434,000 viewers.

  • Agnes

    Thanks Robert for the Louie numbers. Glad it got renewed before these numbers, for the season finale no less… I know the show is dirt cheap to produce ($300k per episode was bandied around) so hopefully FX can still make money at these levels.

    I’m guessing the increasing absurdness in the tone of the show is driving people away. Or NFL…

  • romo

    Now it says last nite 3.3 up from 3.3.

    Sum1 started the weekend early.LOL

  • Tyson

    Romo, good luck against the Bears Monday. At least the ratings will be strong.

  • healthy

    NFL REGULAR SEASON GAME NFLN 8:30 PM 8.053 3.3

    Probably the reason why the broadcasters ratings are down compared to last season. This is the excuse most people will make.

    I hate seeing Impact get these numbers instead of the WWE’s numbers when its the better product.

    @ Tyson: Romo will need it because he’s a choker but he’s facing the other choker Jay Cutler.

  • everton

    sponge bob good

  • j

    wowwww isnt that sad that the only way Disney can get on the top shows is with mickey mouse clubhouse?? lol. But luckily they have some big bucks coming their way. Selena gomez has agreed to do a Wizards of waverly place special and it airs sometimne early next year. Was a classic show, I’m excited. considering the finale of that show got over 10 m viewers they could win a night with it maybe if they put it in a good time slot and promote, promote, promote!

  • Trisha

    Can someone please post the numbers for Are We There Yet? on TBS at 12pm? And Hollywood Heights on TeenNick at 8pm?
