  • Michael

    Is this the lowest rated season of Jersey Shore?

  • John A

    Ah crap Sunny dropped. That ep wasnt good though.

  • msupdate

    @Michael

    The first season was lower rated in terms of 18-49.

  • Luke

    A repeat of friends tying half the CW lineup….life is cruel for them aha

  • Ram510

    It’s unfortunate Always Sunny is down cause that was a great episode, much better than last week. Hopefully they have a really funny episode and have better ratings next week before it takes a break for Thanksgiving

  • Joe

    nooo sunny come on rise up we want season 10

  • Michele

    Did RHOM come on yesterday? I dont see it in the listing (maybe I missed it). I see RHOA which was a repeat.

  • Jared

    Bravo has moved RHOM to Sundays at 10pm after RHOA.

  • Lillian

    BURN NOTICE was fantastic last night. It had great writing,directing and acting.Also very exciting Boom boom booms. I expect some people will get awards for the show. So glad for the renewl of season 7.

  • Michele

    @Jared
    Thanks. Is that just for this week? I guess they are hoping for a ratings bump.

  • Meanie

    Michele is wasn’t a repeat it was a sneak peak. Still does better than RHOM

    I see Bravo ain’t stupid they moving RHOM behind Atlanta. This just proved my theory that RHOM can’t stand on its on.

    MTV must be happy they made the decision to cancel Jersey Shore cause it gets worse and worse

  • DougF

    @Joe

    I think Season 10 is up to the cast. If they were to tell FX they want to do a 10th season they would announce it the next day

  • Jared

    @Michele

    I’m not sure if the move is permanent..but if Bravo were smart they should keep it after RHOA until the end of the season. I don’t think RHOM has too many episodes left..but not positive about the episode count.

  • Ram510

    @DougF

    I’m sure the cast plays a big part in if a season 10 happens, but Dunny still need to do its part in the numbers department

    Burn Notice was great, one of its best episodes ever. Too bad it’s on at the same time as Scandal so I can’t watch it live

  • Azzman

    HOLY CRAP!! An old episode of Married with Children had 700,000 viewers at 6:30 in the am?! That’s the only time I’ve seen a show on here for that time of the day..All I can say is—WWWWHHHHOOOOAAAAA BUNDYYYY!!

  • idiots

    Don’t nobody watch Jersey Shore anymore thank god!

    @ Azzman

    That’s quite impressive for that old sitcom and the fact that Friends and Full House are getting it done on Nick & Nite.

  • Dodge Hickey

    Big Sunny fan, shame the ratings dipped but the episode was pretty weak (a few funny moments)

  • sandy canila

    Enjoyed watching you win instead of raging at 500 ints per game. ?

    Kitchen Cabinets online

  • david

    I was surprised to see Married with Children on the list. I think i have seen it on there once or twice before.

  • linz

    I have 30 episodes of Married with children on the DVR.. they show like 3 a day so its VERY hard to catch up!
