  • Poweranimals

    Any chance I can get the numbers for Power Rangers?

  • KeepingItLight

    @Johnathon

    The season premiere is the highest rated episode of the season.

  • Mike

    I would have liked Gyp Rosetti to go out with a bigger bang.But overall,a fine season final of Boardwalk Empire.

  • Oliver

    @Kale B

    I hear The CW are working on their own half-hour Summer version of “interstitial break” called “Oh Snap!”

  • Kaylie

    Go Good Luck Charlie. You can tell a strong show when they pull numbers like that in the 7:30 slot. Overall, great night for Disney.

  • bb

    Great for RHOA, Kim leaving will hurt the show though I think. Her spin off will do good though. Also great for Shahs of Sunset.

  • dan

    Great for Dexter, Homeland, and finale of TWD. Also very good for Boardwalk Empire which was a great season!!!

  • I luv nickelodeon

    I am very disappointed with victorious. It was such a good episode.. People these days need to watch something funny and not boring. Victorious should of got way way more the 2.8 million. Yeah we all know Marvin Marvin is gonna get canceled. Nickelodeon don’t promote Marvin promote VICTORIOUS.!!! Gosh.! Oh and how to rock.

  • jay

    Thanks Nick!

  • svsnt021

  • melvin

  • shayne

    Hey Nick, what numbers did oprah’s next chapter with steven spielberg get?
    thanks!!!

  • Nick

    How to Rock was given up on by Nick. Put in the death slot. Stopped promoting it. etc. I’m not shocked at Marvin, Marvin numbers. That’s gone. Should have never cancelled How to Rock.

    Thanks Nick for the OPRAH numbers! Pretty mid-low numbers considering Steven Spielberg, Sally Field, and Daniel day Lewis were the guests.

  • david

    ABC Family did very good with the movies it showed sunday night and afternoon. Victorious i thought would have done a little better too. It was a good episode.
