    How did Jessie and Fish Hooks do?

  • Martin

    Wow, the retention for Haven this week out of Smackdown is really good, I know it was because of the brilliant cliffhanger the week before but still.

  • poweranimals

    Never mind about Jessie. Just saw it on there. Do we know how Fish Hooks did?

  • The End

    @Martin

    Haven has always reached these numbers regardless on Friday. We’re actually down from Season 2. But hey, it’s renewed, these numbers mean nothing as the shows episode count will never be reduced.

  • MDM

    Wow, who still watches the Ultimate Fighter? I thought it was canceled years ago.

  • One

    Hunted ratings, please.

  • capslocke

    So i know you guys don’t usually do Saturday Cable Ratings for completely understandable reasons, but will you be reporting on Wedding Band’s ratings? It is a rather odd situation, a freshman with a famous cast getting actual promotion in a complete burn-off timeslot.

  • Eas

    WOAH! Check out the retention for Haven, Smackdown was a repeat on Friday because it aired an original on Election Night. Haven clearly has its own audience.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    Did not see Cinemax ratings and won’t before tomorrow, so no Hunted.

    FISH HOOKS = 2.583M viewers and a 0.3 A18-49 rtg.

  • Chris

    If you want to look at Cinemax ratings, you better have an electron microscope.

    ;)

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Wow.. the spongebob episode topped the new Jessie episode by 1 viewer!

    Did any one see the iGoodbye promo? It looked really sweet. Nickelodeons promoting skills will be put to the test the next few days… :)

  • Eddy

    @ Nathan

    iCarly had a really good run for Nickelodeon, during its peak it was running the table during an era where Disney Channel had Hannah Montana and Wizards running the table. iCarly and Victorious is the glue that’s really holding that network together, hopefully their spin-offs continue the tradition.

    @ Eas

    I agree Haven’s ratings are probably the strongest out the Friday shows that they’ve put behind Smackdown and this week really proves it. Haven probably could’ve actually worked on Broadcast TV since it is a procedural like Grimm.

  • John A

    Hunted is tanking in the UK latest ep sunk to 2.5 million.

  • One @ John A

    Why?! Why are the Brits ignoring such a worthy successor to Spooks?!

  • John A

    To be fair Hunted didnt start that well in the UK with a low 4.5 million. Melissa George must not be a draw for UK audience.

  • Dan S

    Doesn’t sound like Hunted will be sticking around. Better luck with Cinemax’s next original series Transporter. I guess SyFy is cool with the 0.4 for Haven since its been renewed.

  • poweranimals

    Thanks Rob

  • One @ Dan S

    For the record, the next Cinemax original is actually Banshee, from the True Blood guy.

  • Lu

    @The End

    Haven down from Season 2 which aired in the summer. I think its ratings this season are pretty good considering it’s airing in the fall when all the big networks premiering shows.

  • cimmer

    @Liz, I don’t know if that argument works as well anymore – cable vs. broadcast ratings. I mean SOA, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad have all been kicking a**. Although Haven seems to be doing as well as anything Syfy has thrown in that slot, regardless of summer, fall or winter. I truly don’t know how much having WWE helps or hinders the shows after it though. I mean do the WWE viewers then switch channels to the Ultimate Fighter on FX or do they hang around for Haven? Does WWE make enough money for Syfy on Friday night that they can ‘afford’ to have a 0.4 -0.5 show on after it (as long as it isn’t costing them a lot of money in cast salary or sfx?) IDK, I’ve always wondered how that works.
