  • Kaylie

    Not a good night for Disney.

  • silvit

    Please tell me these Duck Dynasty ratings are not real. What’s the fascination with this show?

  • Bischoff

    @Nick
    Do you have the ratings for WWE Main Event, AM Raw and Saturday Morning Slam?

  • Jon23812

    I guess Disney had a rough night because they haven’t been showing anything since October 5th. Hopefully next week they do better.

    I’m still waiting for Disney to renew Gravity Falls.

    @amadeus
    No I dont think so. Spongebob did a lot better this whole week than GLC and all the other shows.

  • Chris

    You really have to wonder what Cinemax will put up with–166 thousand viewers for a series they have promoted the hell out of? And not just to their 16+ million subscribers–I am seeing Melissa George’s face on buses all over town. Probably just one of those buses will collect more fares in ten weeks than Hunted had viewers on Friday.

    And that’s just the second ep. No reason to think it’s bottomed out yet.

    @Nick, how much did T.U.F.F. Puppy get on 2:00 PM on Saturday?
