    Can we have Nicki Minaj: My Truth ratings???

  • Mark

    So in three weeks, we have had walking dead lose over a million viewers, then gain over a million, only to lose over a million. It will stabilize at some point. Remember it is averaging over 3 million more viewers than this time last year. Also, this episode was the 4th highest rated in series history.

  • Dan S

    The latest episode of TWD was so intense my Wife couldn’t sleep Sunday night. That show is brilliant & pulls no punches, gets better all the time.

  • Nick

    Has anyone heard if Boardwalk Empire has been renewed for another season?

  • JJ

    @Nick

    I believe Boardwalk Empire was renewed for season 4 in early October

  • MBmomof3

    Wow, RJ and I actually agree on something. Maybe that’s a good sign for the outcome of the election. Maybe it won’t result in a Zombie Apocolypse! LOVE TWD!

    Best to all of you East Coasters out there. Be well.

  • A.C.

    I would bet TWD went down thanks to the episode that aired last week.
    It was a mistake to focus the entire episode in WOODBURY and leave out the PRISON. I think that slightly killed its momentum.

  • Poweranimals

    Nick,

    Can we get the numbers for Dog With a Blog, Austin & Ally, Shake It Up, iCarly, Big Time Rush, How to Rock, TMNT, and Power Rangers Samurai? Thanks in advance.

  • SarahL

    I cannot believe the ratings dropped for The Walking Dead. It was such a great episode.

  • JD

    Walking Dead will probably be up next week after that killer episode. Lots of shows were down Monday, too…it’s been a distracting couple of weeks with everything going on.

  • LisaM

    You never know that a certain episode is going to be intense or just really really good. The ratings are based on those who gamble it will be.

  • JD

    I love how Walking Dead’s repeat airing was still rated better than any other program.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Nick
    Can we see numbers from anything new Saturday and Sunday from nickelodeon, cartoon network, and Disney.?
    Such as:
    Big time rush, how to rock, icarly, penguins of Madagascar, robot and monster, power rangers, see dad run, dog with blog, shake it up, Austin and ally, and Pokemon. Thanks in advance.(:

  • Bluetahoe

    I can’t get enough of Homeland. My favorite show on TV. Dexter, Boardwalk Empire and The Walking Dead all excellent. Sunday night is the best night for TV for me.

  • Valerie

    It was great episode of TWD! Will they renew it already? And Dexter was amazing as well – the ending :0

  • Lisa

    Hi Nick,
    what were the numbers for Austin & Ally, Dog With A Blog, and Shake it up?
    Thanks!

  • Evan

    How did the two episodes of “All That” do on Nickelodeon at 5:30/6:30central and at 6:00/7:00 central?

  • landon

    OUAT beat TWD in total viewers! Both are great!

  • Derek

    The lower TWD ratings can like be attributed to the fact that last week’s episode was incredibly dull and only featured one original cast member. Audiences were definitely turned off by an entire episode devoted to Woodbury. It’ll be back up next week after word gets out about Sundays AMAZING episode!

  • The End

    @Derek

    I had the vibe that that was done purely from a budget standpoint. When you have a large cast being paid per episode, if you were to add in lots of appearances from characters you could go over budget.

    @Storm

    Sorry, hate to be nit-picky but your comment here
    > Lets not forget that us NY and New Jersey viewers are out of power, and most of the people with power lost their cable. I blame Sandy.
    It was understandable why I aimed the response I did, but apologies non the less for any misunderstandings.
