  • Hymee

    Wow those are not good ratings for winner take all game 5’s.

  • John A

    Not bad from Haven.

  • Ethan

    Very happy Haven is up again!

  • Mike

    What were The Ultimate Fighter’s ratings on FX?

  • mikey D

    The Cards/Nats game did 2.0 and Yankees/O’s only did 1.4. That’s surprising.

  • Jon23812

    A.N.T Farn does a lot better on reruns then premieres.

  • Meanie

    Congrats Haven is doing okay. I wonder if Nick didn’t have Spongebob what would they be doing today lol.

    Dear WWE,

    Cancel Smackdown I mean I don’t watch wrestling but if more people are watching reruns of Family Guy than wrestling let it go. WWE should just stick to RAW, Raw can do 4mill but smackdown do 2+mill. Idk maybe its the content, lack luster idk, but let it GO.

  • Jesse

    @Meanie Family Guy reruns does better than everything on these lists. So if you want to cancel Smackdown then everything on this list should be canceled.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Great for Yukon Men

  • JJ

    meanie, syfy pay wwe $30m a year for smackdown, where do you propose they come up with that money if they drop the show?? anyway impact wrestling barely does 1 million viewers on spike, ultimate fighter is averaging about 800,000 viewers so far this season on fx and ufc specials on fx have done around 1.1-1.3 million, smackdown is doing fine and does 2.5 times what the normal show in primetime on syfy does

  • Jared

    When did Ghost Adventures become so popular?..last season it wasn’t even making the top 100 shows on cable..now week by week its been climbing in both viewers and demo. Love this show..im happy people are finally becoming aware of it.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Strike Back finished its season Friday with a satisfactory conclusion to the story arc. The one thing I found implausible was pulling two nuclear triggers out by hand simultaneously beating an electrical circuit…uh, doubtful… :-) The usual massive numbers of squibs fired… :-) And surprise! No sex for Scott! :-)

  • trevor

    Great Disney numbers – Ant Farm rerun numbers are great – much higher than when they are stuck on Fridays at 8pm normally! TV movie & Dog/Blog killed!

  • Really?

    Real Class act there putting a picture of Derek Jeter getting hurt as your heading photo. After being crushed this weekend with that, you had to remind NYY fans of the moment. You must be Boston fans, go to hell!

  • Martin

    Go Haven, Go Haven. So glad, this is now up near enough where it was last year at around this episode, and that was in summer with less competition and i also think, not sure though, that Smackdown was a lot better in viewers and demo then as well. If Haven will be renewed, which at this stage is likely, i bet they take all season to announce it like last year. Wasn’t announced last year until nearly two weeks after season ended (not including Christmas special).

  • LT

    The Yankees are bums. They try to buy championships and more often than not it doesn’t work. Only 1 championship(2009) in the past 11 years. They look toast against the Tigers for this series.

    STL Cardinals have won 2 championships(2006, 2011) and have a legit shot a a 3rd in the past 6 years. After winning the WS series last year, they lose their Hall of Famer Albert Pujols and Hall of Fame Manager Tony La Russa retires, they haven’t missed a beat. St. Louis Cardinals are easily the best organization in baseball.

  • Rodrigo

    Anything on Boss? :)

  • Lu

    Excellent news for Haven!
    Whatever it is, I just hope the Yankees are not swept by the Tigers.
    I still believe in them.

  • RAYRAY

    Woohoo! A.N.T. Farm!!!!!

  • Dan

    LT youre the bum. The cards should have been eliminated and the braves definitely got screwed. Im a yankees fan but if they dont win im a root for the Giants. Anyone but the cards.
