    wow, with those numbers I’m surprised that Copper was renewed

  • I luv nickelodeon

    I’m pretty upset on the numbers for victorious and icarly, cause they were one of the best episodes so far.. They did okay, but not as good as they ususally do. But GO NICK.!(:

  • James

    Thanks, Nick!

  • Poweranimals

    Nick, any chance you can post what Make Your Mark got Sunday night at 8pm on Disney?

  • Oliver

    @William

    I expect BBC America are playing the long game by slowly building an original programming lineup for the network, along the lines of AMC.

  • Yo

    Copper is an amazing show.
    Anyone who likes complex dramas should watch it.
    Great show!

  • Andrea

    William, why do you say that? It’s the first original drama by AMC, and AMC needs a baseline. Have you seen what AMC regularly pulls in that slot?

  • Poweranimals

    Thanks Nick. Much appreciated.

  • Doug-H

    I would bet that TREME gets almost nobody watching live except people too lazy to change channel to any of the other great stuff on Sunday nights… Shows like Homeland, TWD, along with network fare like The Good Wife..

    I don’t worry too much about TREME because it’s been renewed for one more season which to me is just fine.. I can watch it anytime I want so no need to catch it live… That’s the wonderful thing about Premium programming frankly.. You can watch them ON Demand and not have to worry about FF’ing through commercials on a DVR… Most of the commercial On Demand offerings force you to sit through commercials so I tend to use my DVR for them that I can’t FF through..
