  • Luis

    Banshee?

  • AJ

    Good job Jessie and A.N.T. Farm!!! Finally reached 3 million viewers :)

  • Meanie

    Did anyone see Banshee? Was it good cause I missed it.

    TBS For Better or Worse those numbers are horrible. I wonder if TBS will still go through w/ the 90episodes with those numbers.

    Smackdown was up in rating & demo. I guess The Rock is a good catch cause he help ratings on Raw & Smackdown & also help WWE have the highest PPV buyrate for Wrestlmania

  • Lorenzo

    Banshee ratings please.

    @Meanie

    The Banshee pilot is on Cinemax’s official youtube page for free.

  • jamie

    Jessie, A.N.T. Farm, Phineas and Ferb, and Fish Hooks all around 3 million. [smile]

  • Twist Of Fate

    Well, Phineas and Ferb & Jessie did good as usual. Little shocked at Ant Farm making it, but then again, it was the season premiere and I doubt it’ll keep it up. Poor Fish Hooks can’t hold an audience.

    The Rock is seriously doing great for WWE. First, he helps WWE NOT die against the BCS Championship, & now he leads Smackdown to over 3 million viewers. #TheGreatOne

  • El

    @Luis

    Banshee is on a premium cable channel, so its ratings don’t matter, it has already been paid for by the subscribers.

    The other Cinemax series, Hunted, pulled in 0.25 million viewers and a 0.1 rating in the 18-49 demo when it premiered back in October. Most likely Banshee didn’t even come close, otherwise it would have been noted.

  • Nathan

    Kinda expected more from Jessie, ANT, and Phineas because they were apart of the JaNEWary segment thingy..

    Anyway, I hope Victorious scores good numbers, I doubt it though since Nickelodeon did NOT promote it fully until Saturday, glad Marvin Marvin’s numbers are increasing…

  • Mitchell

    No Demo numbers for banshee but 483,000 viewers, highest since Strike Back.

  • Kaylie

    Go ANT Farm for that boost. Hopefully it’ll still do well.

  • OWN Fan

    Tyler Perry’s ‘For Better or Worse’ was a repeat. TBS and Tyler Perry mutually ended the show. Now, 2 more Tyler Perry shows (The Have and the have Nots ‘drama’, and ‘Love Thy Neighbor’ ‘comedy’) will be on the OWN network with all Tyler Perry shows and movies (most likely).

  • JoJo

    Banshee
    483,000 total viewers
    Across 3 airing nearly 1million total viewers

  • Jon23812

    Disney should cancel Fish Hooks and renew Gravity Falls.

  • Bill

    Banshee was pretty good. I enjoyed it

  • trevor

    @Twist of Fate – that was NOT the season premiere of ANT FARM – Season 2 has been on the air since the summer – however, Disney had not aired a NEw Ant Farm since before the holidays. But good numbers for the night – and especially considering how hard the 8pm Friday lead off is.

  • Mon

    I enjoyed Banshee too. The characters are intriguing and interesting. I would like to know more why Job has such a soft spot for “Lucas.” Why is the mayor so young (about mid-20s!)? Hopefully the ratings are enough to secure a season 2.

  • i luv nickelodeon

    I hope victorious did a alot better. It was the funniest episode ive ever seen from the show. Lol. Anybody agree?

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Im glad rugrats in paris did good. ANt farm is lame but it brought in steady numbers. Jessie did good. Fish hooks stood up but its a bad show. Gravity falls is better. Overall good numbers for disney (:

  • Nathan

    @Trevor
    Yeah, they haven’t aired any new episodes since the November 23, thanks to iCarly ;)

    @ I luv nickelodeon
    Very funny episode, indeed.

    @Jon23812
    There hasn’t been a new episode since October. What are they trying to do – save the episodes? This is very weird for a Disney show.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Gold Rush strikes again as #1–”where the boys are!”
