    Poor HOW not looking promising for a third season with 18-49 continuing to drop. It’s a shame the finale was some of their best work.

  • Stefan

    @Nick
    Do you have numbers for WWE Main Event (ION)?

  • BL

    Very good for Steel Magnolias!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow for IShock America especially for a rerun!!!!!!

    The question is @Nick or to anyone that has the Saturday night Ratings?
    How did iShock America do on Saturday Night in the ratings?

  • TimsDale4ever

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for Dexter! Had no clue show was so popular.

  • Matt

    RHONJ held up real well compared with the competition. Should be higher for part 3 next week

  • Colin

    Hell on wheels was up.

  • Agnes

    Homeland Up 0.1, Dexter down 0.2.

  • Orsa

    HOW finale up… ~2.2 mil and .5 is enough for a season 3 on AMC.

  • Nick

    Good luck Charlie wow, even Austin and ally

  • Dima

    Series high for Homeland.

  • Poweranimals

    Does anyone have the numbers for See Dad Run at 9pm on Saturday?

  • Bluetahoe

    Dexter – Just a great drama.
    Homeland – Off the charts thrilling and intense. Best show on TV.
    Boardwalk Empire – Always liked the show, but, this year it has really upped it’s game. Fantastic.

  • TV LOVER

    What were the ratings for Scott Baio’s new show “See Dad Run”? It was run on Saturday and Sunday.

  • Dan S

    I can’t find Treme on the list. It must have dropped so low it’s off the chart. I can ignore the 18-49 demo for HBO & SHO since it’s all ad free. With that being said Boardwalk Empire slightly edged out Dexter but of course HBO is in more homes. Too bad for HOW, had a great ending & highly doubt it’ll be back.

  • SarahL

    Dexter was great again. I cannot believe that it dropped in the demo.

  • UKTVFan

    Nick, may I politely request the ratings for the season premiere of Bedlam (BBCA, Saturday) and Copper (BBCA, Sunday)? I’m curious to see how far the Saturday ratings dropped from Doctor Who (and if Copper went up!).

  • joss

    @SarahL

    Dexter was great again. I cannot believe that it dropped in the demo.

    who cares about the demo ? its on SHO 2 mill is amazing and its already renwed

  • Bee

    OMG new series high in 18-49 for homeland!!!!! HOORAY! this show has been growing and growing since its first episode and it will continue to. this week’s episode was incredible. claire danes can win the emmy for next year already as far as i’m concerned.

  • Andrea

    Great ratings for Steel Magnolias. Very good for Carlina White Story too (the premiere on Saturday night got 4.1m)

    7PM and 11PM Lifetime movies are Carlina’s encore. 1AM movie is Magnolias encore

  • BL

    Homeland so far has impressed me with not only the ratings but also the storylines.
