    Haven did well this week. I think it should air on a different night.

  • Martin

    Good for Haven, wonder if it will go up even more next week considering the cliffhanger at the end of this episode.

  • trevor

    I see JESSE but what about Ant Farm and rest of Disney Friday? Thanks.

  • Chris

    Ratings for “Hunted” please, if anyone has ‘em.

    Obviously you’d need a Top 200 list for that to show up. 200 at least.

    ;)

  • ilvmn

    goodforultimatefighteryeahbuddy!

  • The End

    @John A

    The night makes no difference for 99 percent of Syfy shows. We’ve seen this proven time and time again with other shows, if you’re failing on one night, you will fail on another.

    WWE Smackdown ironically holds up a few shows on that slot, well did. Sanctuary, Stargate Universe, and a few other random shows did good before being moved off that slot. You could argue why didn’t they keep on said slot? Well every show has to stand on its own eventually. Being propped up by another show isn’t a good reflection on the shows actual audience.

  • Observer

    Stargate Universe’s ratings started to suck on Friday. That’s the reason they moved it off Fridays in the first place. It didn’t work, but at least they tried to save the show.

  • Poweranimals

    What did ANT Farm and Phineas & Ferb get?

  • The End

    @Observer

    True enough, have actually mentioned that a lot in discussions here. That said I guess I was stating the obvious in some ways, by saying if you’re failing on one day, you will do so on another. I can’t think of a single Syfy show that has actually succeeded after being moved days in recent years.

    It’s also on the fan excuse bingo day when people start to blame the days, as its quite a common excuse these days.

  • Jay

    Pretty good for the NBA on a Friday.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Spongebob and TMNT were on fire that week.!
    Looks like Disney ain’t doing so good on Fridays as it used to.!
    Go nick.! :D

  • Jon23812

    How much did A.N.T. Farm and Phineas & Ferb do on Disney Channel? 8PM and 9PM respectively.

  • everton

    goo nick

  • trevor

    what’s weird is Jessie is listed at 7:30pm and 8:30pm but not the 8pm of Ant Farm – hmmm

  • Observer

    @The End, sorry I misunderstood. Just drives me nuts when people say how well it was doing until it was moved. It needed better numbers even on Friday to remain viable.

  • Lu

    Oh Haven!!! :D

  • Bryan

    @Nick – Do you have the ratings for “Transformers Prime” on The Hub (Friday, 7pm)? It was the season finale. Thanks!

  • Jeremy

    @nick do you have the degrassi ratings on teennick?

  • Kaylie

    I have to hand it to Jessie for rebounding so hugely. Theres no helping ANT Farm. Disney has to rely on their Sundays to bring in the decent numbers. I would actually love to see Shake it Up or even Austin and Ally anchor Fridays.

  • poweranimals

    What happened to Phineas and Ferb? Usually it gains on Jessie as a lead in, but that’s quite the drop-off.
