  • Alienware

    Next week it’s bounded to go up since they’re back on Dish.

  • Blaster

    Dang, should I be worried about Boardwalk Empire? I know that it’s already been renewed for Season 4, but as for longterm prospects… who knows?

  • SarahL

    Go The Walking Dead and Dexter!

  • John A

    That isnt the same Max that bashes Revenge and AHS is it?

  • Diego

    KUWTK was really fun!

  • THE OLD MAN

    @ Clarke

    Breaking Amish is a keeper. They’re already doing a BA in NY special & wouldn’t be surprised if it became a pilot.

    And you’re right, a 1.6 on TLC is outstanding.

  • Bee

    SERIES HIGH FOR HOMELAND! wow. this show is on fire this season ratings-wise and quality-wise. won’t be long now till it breaks 1.0!

  • Cobalt Blue

    Glad Homeland got a big rating this Sunday, because that was one amazing episode.

  • Haz

    Not surprised that Boardwalk Empire is dropping. They killed off the only character I would watch last season, haven’t watch any of it this season.

  • Cory

    Go Homeland! Series high!

  • Bravo Ratings dot com

    RHoM won’t be moved to Sundays as the 10pm repeat of Real Housewives of Atlanta (which premieres at 9pm this Sunday) will still rate higher than RHoM could and besides Shah’s of Sunset Season 2 debuts in that time slot December 2nd.
    On Sunday night Lady Gaga was tweeting about RHoM which may have had some effect as well. The test will be how it does when it returns to Thursday’s this week. See BravoRatings [dot] com for more info.

  • Mike B.

    Snor/season filler episodes on Dexter and Homeland. Hoping for better with Sons of Anarchy this week.

  • Mark Wilkins

    Good for the Walking Dead and Dexter, TWD still the #1 non-football show

  • JoJo

    Breaking Amish seems to be doing better than Honey Boo Boo and on a more competitive night. TLC must have more Amish waiting in the wings for a season 2.

  • Joe

    @Fancy pants
    The walking Dead ratings are rediculous

    Really Fancy pants !>? Is it>?

  • karinpsy

    Homeland best show on TV but Dexter needs to end…

  • bb

    That’s great for RHOM, that’s a series high in viewers and I think bravo was thinking the RHOA special would do better and help Miami but it rated higher and then WWHl hit 1 million viewers, hopefully this shows a positive trend for Miami.

  • IceCreamSunday

    AMC should pull The Walking Dead before the numbers get any worse. How are they even making money with those ratings? What an embarrassment! I thought zombies were popular and yet only 10 million people bother to watch. FLOP!

  • John

    Breaking Amish is an awesome show. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a spinoff and a season 2. I bet Bravo, Lifetime and MTV are wishing they had it.
