    @Nick
    Thank you so much for your great info as always!!! Do you have numbers for FOOD’s Sat block of Sandwich King (9:00AM) and the premiere of Home Made In America (9:30 AM), plus $24 in 24 (Sun 6:30 PM) Many thanks in advance!!!

  • silvit

    The best thing about Homeland is how they make you root for Carrie. You just want her to be right and being that acknowledged by the CIA and her friends. And that’s quite a feat for a show.

  • Bryan

    Big thanks as always, Nick! :)

    @Nick
    Thanks ever so much, Nick!!! Appreciate it a lot!!!

  • :)

    Thanks for cartoon network block;)

  • Lorenzo

    That is very good for Copper, is it?

  • Lorenzo

    *Isn’t, good. I mean.

  • Kaylie

    Good Luck Charlie did great!! So did Austin and Ally. Dog With a Blog should really be getting a GLC lead in. Also great in the demo as well.

  • svsnt021

    @Nick
    May I request you please, for numbers for last night’s new $24 in 24 (FOOD, 10:30 PM)? Thanks a lot in advance!!!

  • Yep

    @Lorenzo

    This is last week’s so it’s up. Copper is doing fine for BBCA.

    Copper (BBC America)
    -10 PM: 0.404 million viewers, 0.15 A18-49

  • Nick

    @Lorenzo – It’s dropped quite a bit since the premiere but Copper will almost assuredly be renewed.

    @svsnt021 – Sure, last night’s ratings should be available to me tomorrow.

  • Yep

    Hell On Wheels, however, sucked out. Couldn’t bounce back to the steady 0.6 they’ve been receiving all season. Not even it being the season finale could bring the #’s back in. Not to mention they killed off 1/4 of the cast (including Lily Bell and The Swede) and fans are freaking out. Ratings and DVD sales will ultimately decide, but from what I’ve been reading these past few days, they’ve lost a lot of their fan base after the mess the writers made.

  • Hugh

    Homeland up! The season final may beat Dexter

  • Tv

    @nick I don’t know if you posted and if you did sorry but do you know the numbers for icarly on Saturday? Thanks appreciate it!

  • Henning

    Have to say Homeland is the best Drama right now. The last Episode was superb!
