    I already commented Liz and Dick ratings on the specific thread.
    The Lifetime movie at 7pm is the premiere of Love at the Christmas Table. It did better than other Christmas themed premieres this season.

    Hallmark movie ratings are also fine for the channel’s current standards

  • The End

    @Trice Crew

    I thought Merles scenes were done quite well personally, he’s angry, he’s bitter, he’s now twisted because he thought he was abandoned by everyone, and the way he acts, it shows. Superb delivery there.

  • ReallyTired

    Where was Treme Season 3 Finale?

  • Chris L

    Boardwalk was great, but I hope it’s not going to be a trend each year for it to not get great until ep 11.

    @Nick

    Thanks ever so much for your valuable contributions!!! Sorry I didn’t reply these past weeks but unfortunately until now, I was without a computer. Once again, thank you a lot!!!

    Would you tell me, if it’s possible FOOD’s top 3 Saturday and Sunday AM (Sandwich King was #1) shows for this past weekend? I’ll appreciate it immensely!!! Thanks in advance!!!

  • shiftysask

    If TWD was on CBS (and the same format was allowed on broadcast) it would get 20 million plus viewers and an 8-9 demo easily. Do people tune in for the elements not allowed on broadcast (violence, gore, etc)? Sure do, but as stated repeatedly erlier, the quality of story telling and absence of cookie cutter brodcast TV cliches is what really make this show the phenom it is. Do you watch NCIS every week holding your breath wondering which of your favorite charachters is going to die? No, you watch the same characters survive the same dangerous situations week after week. Anyone who says “i cant believe the #1 show on cable is about zombies” or “i am ashamed of my generation” obviously has never given the show a watch with an open mind.

  • Stefan

    Thanks Nick!

  • B plus

    Victorious did better than expected but Marvin Marvin debuted worse than How to Rock’s premiere back in February.

  • Ladica

    It was obvious that marvin marvin will fail, I think nickelodeon was smart to make all the international start on April 2013, because it will give the international nickelodeon time to know what to do with the show

  • Ladica

    Doesn’t nickelodeon know that the majority of,people do not like Lucas or Fred, just remove him

  • A.C.

    @SHIFTYSASK

    Great analysis and 100% on target.
    Unfortunatly any time the nets do try and venture out of their comfort zone we get cancellations like the excellent LAST RESORT.

  • Ali

    TMNT Only got 2.9? I thought it would get like 3.5 cause of the amount of people that commented on the Episode!

  • Anonymous

    Victorious hits the top 25 for the first in 2 months
    Marvin Marvin (2.606/0.40 vs. 3.495/0.56) retained only 25.5% from its lead in despite all the heavy promotion.
    By comparison, How to Rock (3.3M, retained 91.67% of its lead in) but still got cancelled due to declining ratings, it averaged a puny 2.4M this season.

  • SF

    Yeah Home Alone!

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Yay for victorious.! I dont think it was promoted well though. I only saw like 2 promos. HAHAHAHA Marvin Marvin did terrible.! Like i expected. They should renewable how to rock and send marvin marvin to disney or cancel it now…

  • lakergirl

    I will chime in and say I don’t get “The Walking Dead” phenomenon either… very baffling!
