  • Max

    First. Wasling Dead is a flop!

  • samu

    GO TWD!!!!!!!!

  • Michael

    Nice RHOM increase, after last week’s explosive episode!

  • Matt

    wow at RHOM! This huge jump might be because of all the drama that culminated into a physical fight on Sunday’s special episode – but I think it also shows the potential for the show on a better night. RHOM has become one of the most interesting and fun series of Real Housewives – I wish more people would be checking it out and get over the Season One failure.

  • Alley Car

    Real Housewives of MIA made a nice jump up on Sundays… maybe it should be moved permantley

  • Meanie

    Great for TWD. I’m glad it doing good. This show will def be renewed I just don’t know why it hasn’t been said yet. This show will go down in cable history

    I see the RHOM did good with the RHOA marathon as a lead in. Still I believe RHOM can’t stand alone by itself on its on night like RHONJ RHOA or RHOBH

  • RonoMC

    I think they should move RHOM on sundays after REal ousewives of atlanta

  • IMJ

    Miami is weak and boring. What they need to do is put the hairstylists tell all Atlanta episodes on more frequently. Id rather watch that then RHOM and its wackness.

  • THE OLD MAN

    TWD retains its BBS (Beyond Beast Status)

  • Paul

    They need to move RHOM to Sunday.

  • Melanie

    Glad to see the Real Housewives of Miami getting a little boost airing that explosive episode Sunday night. Hopefully it can hold on and stay steady for its final episodes of the season. I am really enjoying it and it is way more exciting than last season. I thought the Atlanta Housewives hairdressers was hilarious and am excited about the new season as well and Beverly Hills also.

  • Baqinardo

    Homeland was awesome!!!
    But i think it’s too soon for Brody to be double agent.
    Hope to see more twist to it.

    @Meanie
    I thought it was already renewed?

  • IMJ

    Miami only did a 0.6 with 1.3 million viewers on a Sunday night. Jersey and Atlanta do well over 2.5 million, close to 3 million regularly on Sunday nights. The show is weak and has little interest.

  • Jesse

    I wonder how the major networks feel with The Walking Dead being the biggest show(18-49) on all of television. It is beating Modern Family and Big Bang. On a small network like AMC as well.

  • Mike

    suprised that Boardwalk fell below 2 million.One of the best shows on tv (though this week’s diner-heavy episode was a little slow)

  • William

    Wow at Walking Dead, another great episode. Same for both Showtime shows, really enjoying Dexter and Homeland

  • RandyL

    @Max go back under the bridge, troll.
    Seriously, The Walking Dead is the most successfull show on television right now. I wonder how the ratings would hold up over a 22 or 24 episode season.

  • Ram510

    TWD had it’s best episode since season 1. Hopefully it doesn’t go back to dragging out the slow stories again

  • Jeff

    TWD is the best show on TV. PERIOD. Love Revenge, but it needs to get its crap together soon, as TWD is destroying it in the ratings, along with pretty much everything else on TV.

  • Clarke

    Is anyone else surprised at how well Breaking Amish is doing? It is a major hit for TLC. I wonder if they will do another season with other Amish people, despite the controversy.
