  • TV

    the challenge is losing viewers…i have a feeling it could eventually go below a mil :(

  • John A

    Yes well done South Park. Really silly but fun episode.

  • Meanie

    Wednesday night in cable is boring to me.
    But happy to see South Park get good ratings seeing it started out around 1.7 or something.

    Personally I believe CMDY Central need better anime shows. Their just not funny, made the can take a page out of Adult Swim Book

  • BL

    Duck Dynasty > Animal Practice.

    I believe Animal Practice will be the next show to be cancelled.

    Duck Dynasty was trending on Twitter last night in my hometown area.

  • Mr Mikey

    Wow the A’s Tigers game didn’t do that well.

  • Jay

    That Yankee game did really well.

  • KK

    @BL

    South Park beat Animal Practice, too. Why AP hasn’t been axed is beyond me. Besides, SP’s brand of humor is genius compared to AP.

  • Jay

    Although for early 6 million viewers, 1.8 is skewing old. With 6 mil viewers, NFL and NBA would get a 2.5.

  • The End

    @Meanie
    @CMDY Central need better anime shows

    Comedy Central has no Japanese cartoons on its network.

  • The End

    Paranormal Witness, regardless of if the stories actually occured in reality is a pretty creepy show, more people should check this show out when its on the air, even re runs. Almost guarenteed that at least a few episodes will genuinely creep you out.

    Basically ‘real’ stories are recreated, played by actors who essentially replay the situations as narrated by the various real life people who claim this has happened to them.

    Surprised people still like Ghost Hunters though, thought many would be turned off by the ‘Hagar’ scratch thing. Personally thought a lot of people would find it fake personally. When I first heard of this episode I kinda rolled my eyes at it, and found it painful to watch. Each to their own I suppose.

  • Smoke That Sherm-Palladino

    Key & Peele was up two tenths this week. Very funny episode last night. Hope this show can keep growing its audience, it’s the best thing on Comedy Central.

  • AppleStinx

    ‘Restaurant Stakeout’ was tops for Food Network, and they are bringing back ‘Mystery Diners’ as “new series”. It’s the same as ‘Restaurant Stakeout’ without the “that’s a red flag!”, “that place is insane!”, “she’s a rock star”, “what is she doing!?!”(she, the bartender, is doubling as fire acrobat right next to the bar and customers) and what else.

  • Pierre

    Tigers and A’s ended up having one of the better postseason endings in a long time. Tigers were in a cruise control of that game so that’s probably why not that many people watched it like they did before expecting that the A’s were going to get eliminated instead Detroit choked hard.

  • bluelp85

    This season of the Challenge has been a pretty boring one. Hopefully if it gets a 24th season it gets a better cast. Maybe look into bringing back a few of the RW/RR seasons 1-10 people, if their bodies can handle it, lol.

  • Meanie

    @theEnd your right anime’s are usually japanese cartoons but these days everything is considered a anime. I mean Family Guy was considered by TV Guide one of Americas top 100 anime’s, && Boondocks is considered a black anime and I highly doubt there japanese cartoons.

    But whatever ppl want to call it Cmdy Central need more of it and better ones.

  • The End

    @Meanie

    Good point and I agree. This term is mostly used by people who aren’t fans of anime but are aware of its existance and simply catergorize everything under the same umbrella.

    And I agree, they should get Matt and Trey to think about life after South Park and come up with another cartoon series if anything to premiere alongside South Park.

  • guy

    Still a fan of The Challenge. Sad to see it losing ground, but then, MTV is way down in all programming.

  • Hugh

    South Park up to about last year levels, K&P up nicely too

  • Gleebo

    Both MLB games were great last night. Although it would have been nice if the Yankees would have lost, but they draw the ratings the deeper they go in the playoffs.

  • Boris

    I guess hillbilliy shows are new Guidos. Sad. From one pathetic group to another.
