    Nice job, Dexter.

  • Steve

    @Nick… Could you please post the rating for the last Doctor Who this series/season.. Thanks!

  • Mark Wilkins

    I love Dexter and Homeland, but I can’t believe how many people watch the reality garbage

  • everton

    (victorious 8 :00 pm , big time rush 8 : 30 pm, how to rock 9 : 00 pm sabado ) teenage turtles 11 : 00 am (sabado)

  • Silvio

    Homeland did fantastic.
    It’s up 60% in total viewers versus last year premiere. Total 1.73 mil.viewers is best ever season 2 premiere for Showtime (Shameless had 1.58 million, Dexter even less).
    Not that it matters for Showtime, but it also was 70% up in A18-49 compared to season 1 premiere.

  • SarahL

    Did Copper not make this list? Wow.

  • Giorgio

    Oof! Hell on Wheels. Madonn’!

  • UKTVFan

    Sarah, Copper usually doesn’t make the Top 100 (by 18-49 demo) list — its average demo for the first six episodes was 0.26. But Nick usually comes through to give us the BBC America ratings!!

    Nick, I’d also be interested to see how the Doctor Who in the U.S. special (Saturday, 8pm) and the premiere/preview of Chef Race: U.S. vs. U.K. (Saturday, 10pm) did for BBC America. Thanks in advance.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Homeland episode was excellent. Morena Baccarin was terrific, as was Claire Danes.

  • Freddy Arrow

    @RJ

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

    Luckily its on one of the few networks where the demo doesn’t matter.

  • Jon

    Showtime will be thrilled that they beat HBO despite having less subscribers.

  • TheEmulator23

    I hope people that watch those Housewives show feel a little shame. Admit it, It’s garbage & the world would be better off without these kinds of programs.

  • Jon23812

    @Nick, do you have ratings for

    TMNT -11 am
    Victorious – 8 pm
    Big Time Rush -8:30 pm

  • Nick

  • Nick

    I am a different nick, it’s just my name is nick as well, not the famous one

  • N.J.G.

    INTERSTITIAL BREAK gets listed??
    LMAO

  • Benji

    How did Big Time Rush and Victorious do in the ratings on Saturday Night? I’m hoping BTR did well.

  • pickles

  • pickles
