    ALWAYS SUNNY is a hoot, I’ve been watching it for awhile — I’ve completely missed the first 6 or so seasons and was dumbfounded when I found out the show was this old already.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Wow the fairly odd movie did good.(: I really liked the movie.!(:
    Spongebob killed the 6:30 pm half hour. :D 3.7 for a repeat. Wow.! Oh and Full House did amazing for a repeat.! 3 million.!!! For nickelodeon

  • Chris

    Burn Notice really should end soon. They’ve run every last possible variation on this theme, and then some. And the ratings are not what they used to be. Michael Weston should just publish his “How to be an improbable freelance spy” book he’s been dictating notes for the last five years or so. :)

  • I luv nickelodeon

    *Go nickelodeon

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Wait a second was the 8:30 pm slot on nickelodeon full house or the fairly god parents cause I remember I watched the old Christmas special..

  • Nathan

    Wow that’s actually really good for A Fairly Odd Movie! Nothing on Disney tonight, or Sunday night will top that.

  • Luke

    Project Runway All Stars really does terrible in comparison to the original series.

  • Michael

    This is definitely going to be the last season of RHOM. 0.5 is good enough for the other Bravo shows, but not for housewives (expectations are much higher).

    Full House is one of those iconic sitcoms that never go out of style!

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Burn Notice was pretty good last night, and next week looks to be better.

    I was a little confused by Sam’s girl friend. I didn’t even know he had one, and his reaction to leaving her was a little uncharacteristic, since he used to bounce between girl friends almost every few weeks. I think that was a somewhat trumped up complication to their escape.

    I’m also not sure how they’re going to resolve this “on the run” story arc since it seems to put Weston in a total no-win situation. There’s no “out” that I can see as compared to previous story arcs where he was generally set up and could get out by outwitting the enemy who set him up. In this story arc, HE is the one at fault and there’s no getting around it. It will be interesting to see where this goes.

  • Twist Of Fate

    8:30 is wrong for Nickelodeon. Full House was not on. It was the 10 yr old, Fairly Odd Parents Christmas Special, Christmas Every Day. Full House never would score that high.

  • John A

    Okish numbers for sunny.

  • Nathan

    Actually, that premiere @ 8:30 PM wasn’t Full House, it was a repeat of the 2011 F.O.P. Christmas special.

  • Nathan

    Looks like I underestimated Nickelodeon’s “special move” to Thursday Nights.

  • Bryan

    Just an FYI: The 8:30pm listing is wrong – Nick aired “The Fairly OddParents” 2001 Christmas special then, not Full House.

  • Twist Of Fate

    My prediction numbers for A Fairly Odd Christmas were completely correct. On a related note, A Fairly Odd Christmas is the 5th most watched program on Nick this year.

  • Nathan

    *Typo I meant 2001, not 2011. :P

  • Twist Of Fate

    Well, I guess I was totally wrong about Nick’s new Thursday night block. It’s off to a really good start. I now know why it’s not on at 8, NFL Football is on. I can see it now, Thursday Night Nicktoons.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Sara Bibel

    Thanks for letting me know about the Full House error. Nielsen listed the wrong program for Nickelodeon at 8:30PM. I changed it.

  • THE OLD MAN

    And Jersey Shore continues to bleed. Wonder if Scandal has anything to do with it.

    AND SARA SPEAKS! Hi Sara!

  • Proverb

    NFL is a beast!

    Hopefully Bellator can help lift TNA’s ratings in January.
