    RHOA is blazing the ratings on Sunday.

    Mob Wives moved to 10pm but thanks to VH1 for no advertising.

    SAG awards was kinda boring.

    The Kardashian TV Buzz is fading. I remember they use to be a ratings smash. I think ppl don’t care for lives just want to her the gossip on blogs

  • BigBrotherFan

    GIRLS IS SUCH A FLOP! LMAO! HBO IS REALLY SECOND GUESSING GREENLIGHTING A NEW SEASON FOR SURE!

    SHAMELESS is a critical hit BUT SHOWTIME isn’t going to PAY THE BIG BUCKS for a GG statue UNLIKE HBO and DUNHAM and STILL people are not blind. They are avoiding this horrible show and it will get no 4th season and be canceled. Then that untalented monster DUNHAM can go back to making god awful hipster indie crap that nobody cares about!

    In that world can any awards show try and tell US that Dunham gives a better performance that EMMY in SHAMELESS. No way! Unreal! She wipes the floor with that troll!

  • BigBrotherFan

    LMAO A repeat of the 4-years off the AIR Law and Order beat the crap out of GIRLS.
    SAD. Just sad.
    HBO please be smart and go back on your third season or you will lose more money and respect, not to mention viewers like me!
    I rather watch a horribly dated episode of LAW AND ORDER from the EARLY 1990’s then this CRAP and it appears most AMERICANS agree!

  • Jake

    Nick ratings for Cartoon Network Saturday morning cartoon please :)

  • PhilipM

    @Chris: What are you talking about? A 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 with only 1.99 million viewers is pretty damn good. TGW had a 1.5 rating with 9.3 million viewers in the same timeslot as Shameless. THAT is a show that’s skewing old. NCIS and NCIS: LA are older-skewing shows, just like almost all dramas on CBS. Shameless is certainly not, and neither is House of Lies.

  • UKTVFan

    Nick, do you have the ratings for these two BBC America shows? Thanks in advance!

    Ripper Street (Saturday, 9pm)
    Doctor Who: Doctors Revisited (Sunday, 9pm)

  • rob60990

    Any ratings info for Girls would be appreciated, if anyone even watched. :D

    Honey Boo Boo seems to be down though sticking it in the already extremely crowded Sunday at 9 timeslot is probably doing it no favor.

    Damn SVU is a beast for USA.

  • Jonathan

    I’m not sure if a housewives show has tipped 4 million viewers since New York in season 3 during the Scary Island trip. Which is by far the most amazing three episodes in Housewives history!

  • Chris

    @Philip–am I dreaming, or did you just try to make the Shameless demo look good by comparing it to The Good Wife? Isn’t that a bit like trying to make Roseanne Arnold look young by comparing her to Betty White?

  • Chris

    @BigBrotherFan–I think any network would be fine with losing viewers like you. :D

  • Jane

    Just look at the numbers around the Shameless listing to see that it clearly doesn’t skew older than the rest. Shah’s of sunset has the demo and more viewers. L&O has a slightly higher demo rating but significantly more viewers. Family Guy. 2.4 mill with 1.2 rating versus 2.0 with 1.0 rating. What’s the difference?

  • Dom

    Girls is a FLOP. How to Make it in America looks pretty good these days #hboFAIL

  • TimsDale4ever

    I guess Cindy Loper’s show is bombing…

  • r0ckmypants

    @rob60990 – Honey Boo Boo was a clip show on Sunday, which explains its lower ratings.

    @Dom – Demos don’t really matter for HBO. Girls has critical praise and a bunch of awards/nominations… How to Make It didn’t.

    I can’t believe that 2.0 for RHOA. When was the last time that happened on Bravo? RHONJ season two?

  • charles

    @ dom

    Right now How to Make it in America shares the same ratings as Girls, but none of the critical praise or awards count. So no, Girls is still looking better.

  • AJ

    Again, is it too much trouble to update the image on this site with one from this season? Is it an inside joke or something? It’s not hard to find an updated cast photo…

  • PhilipM

    @Chris: You implied that a “1.0 for a show with around 2mil viewers” is an “amazingly low” number when it comes to A18-49. Compare those numbers to ANY drama on this year’s CBS schedule and you’ll see that all of them need a whole lot more than two million viewers to get to a 1.0 demo rating. In fact, most dramas on network television do, maybe even all of them. Neither the rating itself nor the average age of viewers that watch Shameless justify your claim.

    I could compare Shameless to the most beautiful drama girl on network television–and it would still look great. No need at all to bring up Roseanne or Betty for comparison’s sake…

    Showtime has gotta be happy with how Shameless is performing. It’s actually up in viewers and demo compared to last year and rebounded nicely. Smart decision to not air a new episode up against the Superbowl next week as the ratings would only plummet again. As far as Shameless skewing old I’m not seeing it it’s appear on par with most shows.

    Girls has all that buz and critical praise, but can’t even a million viewers… terrible.

  • BigBrotherFan

    @Chris

    Yeah, I’m sure a network would be thrilled to lose the viewership of a 25-YEAR-OLD MALE WITH TONS OF DISPOSABLE income and regularly buys DVD of tv series. Not to mention is in a INCOME BRACKET that networks love.

    THINK before you SPEAK!

    @DOM

    You nailed it!
