  • RJ

    Homeland skews quite old compared to its lead in, Dexter.

  • Colin

    Thats it for Hell on wheels

  • BJ

    @Nick,

    Do you have the Saturday ratings of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Victorious, and Big Time Rush?

  • Hugh

    Homeland 0.7. Woo hoo!

  • SG

    It’s so depressing what Homeland’s numbers say about the viewing public. Such a smart, high quality show, and such paltry numbers. *sigh*

  • EatMorePez

    Breaking Amish up two tenths and 220K viewers. Maybe all of the controversy that it’s fake actually helped its ratings.

  • Matt

    Rhonj should hit 4 million next weel

  • John A

    Homeland did bad. All the critical praise and Emmy love 0.7 is all it got? Im glad Dexter did well it was a great episode.

  • Bryan

    @Nick – Can you post ratings for new episodes (& season premieres) of Ben 10: Omniverse, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Green Lantern and Young Justice from Saturday 9-11am on Cartoon Network? Thanks!

  • Rono

    You seriously need a new picture of RONJ, half of these cast members on the phono aren’t even there. That was 4 years ago. Anyway, great for RHONJ but I am still hoping for 4mil

  • John

    Breaking Amish is a monster. It should take over one RHNJ is finished. it is so well done and dramatic.

  • peter

    Sunday is too crowded with quality shows: Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, The Good Wife, Dexter, Revenge, OUAT, Fox Animation,…And The Walking Dead will soon join them.

    Ratings for the season 5 premiere of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (saturday morning on CN)?

  • Ben

    I like how the numbers for RHONJ (both viewers and 18-49) are the same for many NBC comedies, if not better lol.

  • Mary

    I was expecting better numbers for Homeland.

  • Tommy

    @ Everyone saying “Homeland” did bad,

    Remember this show is on SHOWTIME which continuously renews shows that pull in .2/.3 season averages (“The Big C,” “The Tudors”). It’s no “Dexter” but it’s on par with “Shameless” and thus still a hit for the channel.

  • Steve-A

    ANY OF YOU WHINING OVER HOMELAND STOP AMD THINK THAT IT’S ON SHOWTIME AND IT’S NOT IN AS MANY HOMES AS OTHER CHANNELS? NOT EVEN AS MANY AS HBO?

  • Mickie

    Nick…your numbers for Oprah’s Next Chapter (Colbert interview) on Sunday, and Sweetie Pie and Iyanla first-runs on Saturday night on OWN are much appreciated. Thank you!

  • THE OLD MAN

    Real Housewives at #1 is reason why the demo shouldn’t be able to have so much “clout”

  • Mon

    Homeland did great. It jumped to series highs. If I remember correctly, it only got ~1 million viewers and ~0.4 in 18-49 last season premiere. Dexter also got a huge bump maybe due to last season’s cliffhanger. I remember Boardwalk Empire used to beat it last season.
