    Well, at least Jersey Shore went up.

    I think Teen Mom 2 is now MTV’s #1 show.

  • cheers

    That was a good football game probably the only good one since the Thursday games started.

    Good to see Impact Wrestling grow for the third straight week in a row.

  • Dodge hickey

    Sunny is way down this week :/ it’s a shame because it was my favorite from the current season

  • Petar Ivanov

    Burn Notice at 10 against Elementary is smart move from USA. At 9 against POI will be much harder.

  • Meanie

    Well I see RHOA help RHOM cause they are doing okay now on there own night. Still horrible numbers for a housewive franchise.

  • FX

    sunny/league :(

  • John A

    Sunny does be up and down. Wish it had a stable 0.8 or more.

  • Big Tim

    Interesting, at least to me, is the total audience ratings for O’Reilly and Maddow, 3.5M and 1.7M, decent numbers, and yet the demo number are small, .3 and .3. These are certainly considered to be influential programs, received a lot of ink during the election, but the demo says nobody cares. At least for opinion television, maybe the demo doesn’t matter.

  • Tv

    Bravo needs to move RHOM to 10 that was everyone who watches the repeat can just watch it all at once and it can get more viewers

  • DougF

    A Season 3 repeat of Supernatural gets the same A18-49 as a Season 3 new episode of Nikita

  • Andrew

    NTSF:SD:SUV:: wasn’t new was it? Its last new episode (the infomercial) of the season was last week?

  • bb

    That’s still the highest Thursday ratings for RHOM, the show has gotten more viewers throughtout the season and almost 2 million viewers for combined airings, I still think the show should have gotten a better day than Thursday but I definitley think the show will end up geting a 3rd season.

  • I like this show

    Sunny has been terrible for basically 2 years now it’s killing The League which is far superior and id argue top 2 in comedies on tv in terms of quality. Please FX don’t cancel The League because it’s lead in sucks.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Cinemax’s Hunted has I think one episode left. Things picked up in last night’s episode so the next one will either be a denouement or a cliff hanger.

    Also word is that the BBC won’t pursue a second season for Hunted. BUT Cinemax is saying they would like a second season. So we might get one. The show is pretty good if occasionally slow.

  • William

    its always sunny should just end after next season and not even get a 10th season renewal. it hasnt been good in a few seasons, its getting VERY stale.

  • jeeb

    I think after having 4 or more new shows that haven’t really made an impact, Bravo would be stupid not to give RHOM another season. At least its ratings are OK. Maybe a little low compared to another Housewives franchise, but compared to its other shows, including Top Chef, it holds its own.

  • Chris

    Sunny & League are both running on fumes now. I never thought much of the latter, but enjoyed it sometimes. Sunny is a modern classic, but I think they need to start thinking about shutting it down.
