  • Gegas

    I really wish TNA would move to Monday nights again, they need to steal some WWE viewers away.

  • duffcry

    It´s awesome that monster´s ratings!

  • Colin

    Why is Fringe TV series aired weird dates and times on FX?

  • Meanie

    Poor RHOM they need to change up the cast cause for a reunion episode those # are horrible.

    A RHOA sneak peak beat out RHOM. Clearly RHOM can’t hold its own on its own night. It needs a strong lead in.

  • Michael

    RHOM needs to be moved to Sundays next season or Monday night!

  • DomCA25

    RHOM is amazing, I’m honestly really shocked how noyone is watching this show. Yet they watch RHONJ which is so horrible.

  • Jeanelle

    Beyond Scared Straight has had 2 fantastic episodes in the last two weeks. It’s amazing how stubborn, uneducated, and eager for violence these kids are.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Wow, at Nick’s repeat ratings. Especially SpongeBob & TMNT. Good for FOP, too. And Victorious at 2.7 million viewers. That’s unusually high for a non-Nicktoon, especially without a SpongeBob lead-in.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Gregas TNA scores 1.3 million viewers a week. WWE (usually) scores above 4 million viewers a week with RAW. Even it’s B show Smackdown hovers around 3 million viewers. The last time TNA tried that it’s viewers dropped, while WWE’s remained unchanged.

  • The90sAreAllThat

    Nick is really putting up some great ratings. Nice to see TMNT reruns continue to do well and Victorious block also did very well. Wow.

  • Guest

    BET’s Apollo Live has done awesome it’s first season. I’m quite surprised. Good Job BET!

  • Phil

    @ Twist of Fate

    I can see what Gregas was talking about, I think what he means is that TNA’s ratings needle is moving that high on Thursdays so airing right up against the WWE might do the trick like during the Monday Night wars. TNA is a much better product than it was in 2010 when they last tried it. I would like to see that play out myself.

  • Phil

    Looks like Victorious has become Nick’s top comedy now that iCarly is gone.

  • everton

    OMG ,nick
    I’m impressed with victorious in three weeks a new episode did 2.6
    and now a repetition of a special made ??2. 72, and sponge bob has no limits, 3, 86 and 3, 74 to a repetition wow, sponge bob is too perfect and it was great also in the second and fourth, I predict that dominate the top 25 this week, was also otimo despite oddparents note that each episode the audience falls, and yet great, kung fu panda :) Nicktoon like this and it was a repetition of a special 1 hour, tmnt was wonderful, great day for nick

  • Marius

    Impractical Jokers probably series high?

  • David Howell

    TBBT rerun wins the night in broadcast… different TBBT reruns sweep the night in cable and were the top non-CBS shows in English-language television.

    Might we be witnessing the last great syndication sitcom smash?

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Phil
    Regardless of how much better it got as a product, it’s gone nowhere in the ratings. Not to say WWE’s ratings have gone up, this week’s holiday RAW scored under 3 million viewers. CM Punk & Daniel Bryan’s various segments are what generally keep people watching. And either way, The Rock is coming back next month, which will undoubtedly increase ratings.

  • Bb

    The fact that RHOMs “reunion” only got 723,000 viewers last season I think that they will be happy with these numbers which are a big improvement. This season of Miami has been really good, I love the cast and I think that the show could do better on another night, I mean both times it aired on Sunday it did great. I definitely think that bravo will renew it for a 3rd season.

  • Melanie

    I also enjoyed the RHOM this season and wish its ratings were higher. Hopefully next season it can have another Housewives franchise as its lead in because on the Sunday’s it aired after Atlanta, it did pretty well. Don’t understand why they didn’t continue that so that it could build its own audience the way the other Housewives shows did. The first part of the Miami reunion was great and am looking forward to part 2.

    @DomCA25, I so agree with you. I thought Miami was WAY better than Jersey this season. Got so sick of the “Teresa Guidice show” that was RHONJ’s main theme last season.

  • Jared

    RHOM has out rated its previous season and continued to build on its audience throughout the season. I’m sure Bravo will be happy with the numbers and green light a third season.
