  • DW

    @ zombiebasher 24. no. it will not be a 22 episode season. TWD has a problem stretching out the story for the 12 it produces each season. if it were to go to 22 episodes a season , next season would be its last year creatively.

  • Zombiebasher24

    It went from 6 to 13. season 3 has 16 episodes. Hopefully it goes up some more. But it would be alot of work, writing and everything.

  • Mike

    Good episode of Boardwalk Empire.Glad the ratings are up a bit from last week.

  • iCarly

    Nickelodeon morning ratings? Please,!

  • karinpsy

    Go Homeland

  • Deezee

    Hi Ali, The 9pm,10pm and 12am were all the same episode of The Walking Dead. SO if you add them all together….

    and even if you didn’t add them together how is a 4.9 a flop? If thats a Flop and should be cancelled then every other show after it starting with the Housewives of Atlanta with a 1.6 should all be cancelled. If AMC is smart they will renew it for another two years they are making a fortune from this show with advertisers and ITUNE and DVD sales….

  • Kaylie

    Im really disappointed.

  • Bryan

    Thank you, Nick! :)

  • Stefan

    @ Nick
    Do you have the WWE Saturday Morning Slam numbers too?

    Anyway big thanks for all the numbers!

  • RyanCanada

    anyone else annoyed with the outcome of the walking dead? killing off Lori? really? and neal?

  • Valerie

    I’m kind of annoyed they killed her off so soon! I expected it to happen sometime later in the season.

  • MBmomof3

    @RyanCanada, Annoyed at WTD killing off Lori? No. Surprised at the timing? Yes, sort of. Never liked the character and I believe she was killed off in Kirkman’s comic book/graphic novel series. But what a memorable and fitting way for the character to go. My heart broke for Carl. I’m WAY more annoyed that they killed off T-Dog and Carol went missing. You must admit, it was must-see-TV that leaves you wanting more.

  • TVMAN

    Great eps of Homeland and TWD! Especially TWD was so good
