    How many networks are airing Family Guy Adult , TBS , Fox ?

  • Nathan

    @Twist
    I haven’t watched WWE since Elementary school, but I always remembered being obsessed with The Undertaker.

    I think iGoodbye will slightly be affcted by Black Friday… although the trends were amazing – My Prediction: 6.5 – 10 Million viewers. (Probably somewhere between 6 – 7 million.) I hope it exceeds my expectations though…

  • B plus

    @Twist of Fate

    I love WWE! One of my best friends wrestles but not professionally just in his hometown. My favorite WWE is the Miz!!! He’s such a positive person.

    @Nathan

    Your prediction sounds right to me but I wouldn’t be surprised if went higher than 7.5 million. If Victorious’ rating was lower than the previous episode (if Twist of Fate’s prediction is accurate), despite iGoodbye getting strong ratings (based on the twitter trends), that’s embarrassing. I think Nick has given up advertising it. I can’t believe I didn’t see a single promo of Victorious during iGoodbye.

  • Twist Of Fate

    My favorite wrestlers are CM Punk and Daniel Bryan. There both so talented and entertaining. Too bad they get overshadowed by poop John Cena.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Moonshiners ties for #1!
    @ Steve Tickle–call me 1-800-T-OLD-MAN
    Want a case of apple pie

  • Max

    This week is turning out to be too good.

    REVENGE drops like crazy. The REVENGE of cable, AHS: ASYLUM drops like crazy.

    :D

    I mean, does it get any better?

  • mrnickelodeonrewind3

    @B-plus @Nathan @TwistOfFate
    My preditiction: 7-10 million
    What if icarly gets way below our/your expectations lol.?
    and did any of y’all like Marvin Marvin.? I really didn’t like it. The jokes were pretty chessy and the show was just awful. I liked the concept of the show though.

  • John A

    That was a good ep of AHS too. Crazy to air it that night.

  • B plus

    @mrnickelodeonrewind3

    If it gets just 5 million, it’ll still be good considering that competition such as box office (5 films grossed over $20M which hasn’t happened since 2004) and other options of shows (Malibu Country/Last Man Standing family combo on ABC and the Christmas specials on CBS doing decently) may have prevented the finale (if it doesn’t hit the top 10 iCarly episodes of all-time) from nearly doubling iBust a Thief. The last time I saw an iCarly episode trend so much was when iParty with Victorious and iOMG came out so it should get at least 7 million based on those trends. At least it will definitely beat ANT Farm and Liz and Dick to prevent them for hitting the “Cable Top 25″.

    I did not watch Marvin Marvin but I heard it wasn’t very funny like the Fred videos that Lucas made back when he was 15 years old.

  • RJ

    @Max,

    Technically Revenge is this week, while American Horror Story is last week. New weeks start on Sundays – you lose.

  • r0ckmypants

    What is WRONG with you people? When Max comments, you all tell him to go away. When Max doesn’t comment, you all want to know why he’s not commenting.

  • The Original J

    Hasn’t anyone else figured out that “Max/Intensity 2012″ is just one of the employees of TVBTN? Whoever it is — Robert, Bill, Sara or Amanda — is posting these troll comments to get people to respond out of anger and to drive up their page views. How else can you explain how Max is, with the exception of today, always the first person to post about Revenge or AHS? I’m telling you — it’s one of the TVBTN people.

  • Nathan

    @The Original J
    I’m always wondering how “he/she” comments so fast on the Sunday Broadcast ratings posts…

    @B plus
    Marvin Marvin was stupid, although the end was cute when Terry said “He’s getting beat up for being different.” It teaches kids that it’s okay to be different. :)
    Nickelodeon should be treating Victorious like royalty right now instead of promoting the heck out of Marvin Marvin… even if they are going through a “transition”

    “Technically Revenge is this week, while American Horror Story is last week. New weeks start on Sundays – you lose.”

    Your week may begin on any day you choose, I suppose, but Nielsen begins weeks on Monday.

    “Hasn’t anyone else figured out that “Max/Intensity 2012? is just one of the employees of TVBTN? Whoever it is — Robert, Bill, Sara or Amanda — is posting these troll comments to get people to respond out of anger and to drive up their page views.

    As your comment demonstrated, we need not go out of our way to write stupid comments under fake names. Plenty of people out there to write them for us.

    To those with a few brain cells to rub together, commenting is a tiny portion of our page views.

    “I’m always wondering how “he/she” comments so fast on the Sunday Broadcast ratings posts…”

    Mental illness takes many forms. Max’s behavior is just one of them.

  • THE OLD MAN

    @ Bill G

    My good man, you never fail to impress! Well spoken, I must say!

  • JJ

    Honestly it isn’t THAT difficult to get the first comment considering the updates tend to come in at roughly the same time every week… This week Max didn’t get it because the update was delayed due to the holidays…

  • Silvio

    @Shepherd

    Yes, Wednesday’s Duck Dynasty were all repeats. Thus sentence
    Duck Dynasty was down from a from a 2.0 last week
    … makes no sense, it’s comparing apples and oranges.

  • Nick

    I realize it was the Wednesday before Thanksgiving but has Top Chef been struggling this season? Numbers above look terrible.

  • The Original J

    @Bill

    “To those with a few brain cells to rub together, commenting is a tiny portion of our page views.”

    There are plenty of people who read the comments but don’t make them. And if you had a few brain cells to rub together (give out a nasty insult, get it right back), you’d block idiots like Max from commenting–provided that he’s not just one of you. But you don’t. So what does that say about you? Perhaps you find yourself identifying with him, as you’ve always been the site admin who has no problem ripping into your own readers–you know, the ones who give the site it’s page views. If I had to put my money somewhere, I’d bet that if we could get rid of the anonymity of the comments section, we’d find out that Max is really just you.

  • Martine

    Shouldn’t the week start on Sunday? i mean the calendars do it that way.
    LOL @ “We need not write stupid comments under fake names. Plenty of people out there to do it for us!” HAHA! True that! Of course Bill wouldn’t necessarily KNOW if one of the RVBTN people was in fact Max. But I very much doubt its a publicity tactic. If trolling was known to increase popularity it would be more appreciated , I think.

    @ The Original J; If Bill and whoever else works here started to block everyone that made nasty and unnecessary comments then pretty much everyone that here would already be blocked. Including you and me. Its kind of simple. Max isn’t really doing anything that needs to be addressed. No racial insults, or x rated remarks. Just silliness. And its their site, not yours, so they will make their own decisions regarding who is allowed to post. Why do you care? Its not costing you money is it?? Sheesh.
