    wow i was wrong. i thought that since there was no press release yesterday TWD went down.oops.

  • Stephen

    TWD is slaying the competition no matter where they broadcast from

  • B plus

    I think a new AMC show should air after TWD to get a new hit show like HOW.

  • r0ckmypants

    @IMJ – I highly doubt the dip in RHOA’s ratings was due to RHOM airing after it. Look at the ratings above: The Walking Dead was up 7 tenths from last week, Breaking Amish was up 4 tenths, and Dexter was up a tenth. That’s a lot of increased competition. And last week was RHOA’s premiere, which almost always performs better than standard episodes.

  • Mike3

    Take that Big Bang theory! Walking Dead is the #1 beast period!

  • Ed

    Wow TWD kicked butt! Nicely done. Love that show

  • TeeVee

    Hey, can somebody post ratings for “Nicki Minaj: My Truth” on E! ?? It came on at 10:30EST…thanks :)

  • Dave Franco

    “The Walking Dead is outstanding?” Come on now. There’s a reason why Breaking Bad is the better show. Just because it gets big ratings doesn’t mean it’s quality.

    Still think HOMELAND is the best show on TV right now.

  • Jinjeon

    Shouldn’t TWD be getting more than $500000 per ad? If I was AMC I’d take any less than that.

  • Oliver

    @Nick

    Thanks for the Wedding Band ratings.

    0.8 is very good. Looks like TBS might have been smart to put it on Saturday afterall.

  • SarahL

    Yay, The Walking Dead! The show rocks. It was another excellent episode. Well deserved ratings!

  • Jinjeon

    I meant “I WOULDN’T take any less than that”.

  • SarahL

    The ratings for the repeats of The Walking Dead are amazing as well. The Walking Dead is putting a beat down on all its tv competition (excluding sports).

    Nice ratings for Dexter which is really good this season.

  • redlock

  • ClamCam

    TWD #1 Show of TV. Period…I think AMC needs to put a good companion after it! Also the great numbers for Dexter and Homeland keep showing that broadcast TV is slowly dying…Obviously people prefer to watch quality shows like TWD, BB, Homeland, Dexter, SOA, AHS than the crappy 666, Scandal, Neighbors, Malibu and all those redneck shows!
    Personally I only watch revenge, GA and modern family on broadcast!

  • B plus

    Not bad for iCarly considering there wasn’t much advertisement for this past week’s episode. I did hear very good things about the episode so that should bold well for the finale.

  • B plus

    @Nick, thanks for the Ratings. Despite GLC and Dog with a Blog went down, Austin and Ally barely went down from last week. Shake it Up continues to do just fine.

  • yes

    good star wars is stablizing. its a shame that its ratings will plummet if it moves to disney xd.
