  • Max

    Terrible for AHS: ASYLUM, as is the usual this season.

    Where is Washington Heights from MTV?

  • Dillan

    That’s great for AHS! :D

  • JAA

    what’s more important on cable shows, viewership or demos?

  • George

    People are slowly, but surely coming back to “Top Chef”

  • Tony JJ

    WOW! at American Horror Story. It almost looked like it was losing steam! Nice!

    I wonder how Washington Heights did. I didn’t watch, but not being on this list most likely means disappointing numbers especially how good buck wild premiered and how Catfish has become a hit.

  • Mon

    Money well spent for TNT on Castle. We’ll see if same can be said on Hawaii Five-0 next year (was it ~$2.5 million per episode?!) CBS will do everything to keep H50 on air. Hence another post-AFC cgampionship slot for H50 on Jan 20.

  • Mr Mikey

    @JAA
    Demo of course.

  • Matt

    washington heights?

  • silvit

    @Tony JJ

    You have to consider that it had a better lead-in this time. This can only put intro perspective yesterday’s ratings when Iron Man 2 got huge ratings and Justified took advantage of it.

  • msupdate

    Seems Washington Heights has been a “slight” disappointment.

  • silvit

    Why people are still watching Duck Dynasty repeats? I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

  • Meanie

    Wow Washington Heights must of sucked. I actually like the show. Its completely diff from Jersey Shore, real friends tryna make it. With a decent amount of drama.

    AHS I never really cared for it. Maybe cause I just starting watching this season. Idk its like if I see it cool if I miss it oh well. Maybe next season can reel me in

  • John

    Where is Washington Heights ratings? Do you guys think its funny to not post ratings of shows people want to know about purposel?. Because no one is laughing. Ya people are annoying. I know you guys dont post curtain ratings purposely to get people mad. Thats why ya take mad long to post The Lying Game ratings. And the ratings arent even that bad. You guys need to get it together.

  • Christian

    Where is MTV’s Washington Heights? I can’t believe it is not on this list when it was trending on twitter. Something must be wrong. I can’t see an MTV show as heavily promoted as Washington Heights was not on this list.

  • AppleStinx

    Say what? ‘Restaurant Stakeout’ (FOOD) not on the list? I wonder if keeping those vomit-inducing special effects is doing the show in. The effects completely negate the star power of Willie Degel’s mouth: it takes 10 unsynched facial muscles to move it and it keeps moving long after the last word has come out. That thing has a life of its own.

  • Holly

    @John,

    I know you guys dont post curtain ratings purposely to get people mad.

    Yes, Robert and Bill take immeasurable glee from torturing poor viewers by intentionally withholding numbers for random cable shows. :roll:

  • eridapo

    @JAA

    Demo, but Cable does value viewership more than broadcast.

    Remember.. With Cable channels you subscribe to the channel. If the channel does not carry many popular shows, it is more likely that channel wouldn’t get many subscribers. Popularity bring subscribers.

  • mike

    adults 25-54 is the main reason why washington heights aint there,teenagers were the majority viewers..

  • A

    BEST episode of AHS for this season. Well deserved ratings. I’m happy.

    I can’t wait to find out about Season 3′s plot and setting.

  • Jonny C…. formerly Jon

    I would be surprised if WH got lower than an 0.5 cuz most MTV shows debut around that mark.
