  • I luv nickelodeon

    Ouch for Disney..

  • LKoi

    Smackdown way down last week.

  • Jenny

    Nice increase for For Bettor or Worse.

  • One

    Looking for Hunted ratings.

  • Stefan

    @LKoi
    It was up in the demo.
    —–
    I hope the viewer numbers will return to their normal format.

  • John A

    Ok for Haven. Not amazing but decent.

  • jay

    @Nick, “Hunted” on cinemax please?
    And, did you have specific vwrs/18-49 numbers of Hunted-cinemax premiere?
    It’s only a rounded-up numbers out there. would you posting them also if you have?
    Thank in advance.

  • Chris

    @One–Hunted ratings can be the most elusive game of all–because they are so small. Good hunting. ;)

  • One @ Chris

    Your punnery is most amusing.

  • Chris

    Waiting for Hunted ratings is most frustrating. I mean, it was on last Friday, and it’s Tuesday evening now. We have the ratings for every imaginable show out there.

    Cinemax would just rather we not know. :)

  • jay

    @Chris
    Low-rated show numbers finder is low-brainer…wow. What an idiotic saying.
    I don’t wait all the time like you. moron. I know the ratings better than YOU, at least.
    Why Hunted? Becasue It’s cinemax’s second original series and they’re eager to go the next season so they really tring to get a support from BBC even though the show is already cancelled UK . So this “elusive” ratings quiet a make some criterion of next original shows like “Banshee”, “Transporter:the series”, and so on.
    It’s useful data without the show’s ratings level. That’s why I ask for Nick.

  • Nick

    Hunted (Cinemax)
    -10:02 PM: 0.229 million viewers, 0.05 A18-49
    -11:32 PM: 0.103 million viewers, 0.03 A18-49

  • Nick

    And the premiere of Hunted (10/19):
    -10:02 PM: 0.245 million viewers, 0.08 A18-49
    -11:02 PM: 0.150 million viewers, 0.05 A18-49
