    YAY! Hot in Cleveland went up this week! Last week it was 1.21 and this week it is 1.34
    And their ratings are consistent as well!

  • Nick

    Thanks Robert. My bad. I really am surprised that the ratings came in so late, though. What time zone is Neilsen based in?

    Nice for HIC staying steady.

  • Chris

    Good to see Toddlers and Tiaras down this season and Cheer Pefection not showing. Die, TLC, die.

    @Nick: You make some incorrect assumptions about ratings availability from Nielsen to its subscribers and ratings availability on sites like ours. You can be sure if we posted the 100, that Nielsen has released the ratings.

    Don’t confuse availability of additional ratings here and elsewhere with anything Nielsen is doing.

    I really like shipping wars, and I can’t believe that Roy and Jen are going to be a team from here on out.

  • jimmy

    what did cheer perfection do?

    @Chris

    Unfortunately there are still women who watch this crap. We should put them down. ;-)

    Duck Dynasty is truly lowest common denominator tv. I rarely disparage tv shows but the success of this show continues to baffle me
