    @Robert Seinman

    Many thanks, appreciated.

  • Nick

    I have faith that HIC will make a comeback episode. For Example last year one week it was 1.19 and the next week it was 1.95

  • Flame

    @Ike, Page 2: Conan Guests on Wednesday: Jim Parsons (TBBT), Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter) and Delta Spirit.

    Wow. Highest non-Jersey Shore cable reality show ever? Don’t know what Pawn Stars peaked at.

  • j

    Jon & Kate Plus 8′s fifth-season premiere averaged 9.8 million overall viewers and 4.3 million viewers in the Women 18-49 demographic.

    4 million is a 3 rating. That’s over a 3 from women alone; men probably bumped it up a bit too.

    The July 13 episode of Discovery’s Deadliest Catch, which featured the final episode of Capt. Phil Harris, was watched by 8.5 million viewers with 5.2 million of them in the 18-49 demographic.

    That’s, what, a 4 rating?

    Sorry just watched my first episode of DD. And last.

    This is the most overly produced, “scripted” reality show I have ever seen.

    I get that a few of the guys are appealing, and the whole duck thing is odd and gets you interested at first, but it goes off the rails after that.

    I have been told that the main family members are “acting” their roles……

    That’s cable tv today. Oh well.

  • guy

    Looks like MTV will finally be cancelling The Challenge and Real World.

    The audience wants more of Jersey Shore—-Buckwild.

    The demos have spoken.
