    how come Spartacus didn’t make the table? any news on its ratings?

  • timotey

    So, Spartacus was below 0.3? Ouch. I guess it’s good they canned it, huh?

  • 1454

    Spartacus?

  • John A

    Spartacus is doing awful. It was very smart to end it this season.

  • The End

    @timotey

    Forget Spartacus being crushed by the Romans, the NFL Superbowl army steamrolled his efforts.

  • AJ

    Glad to see A.N.T. Farm and Jessie go up, especially A.N.T. Farm!!! :D

  • Zoniako

    Banshee ratings??

  • The End

    Huge error made there, disregard my other comment. Thought for a moment this was the Sunday Cable post. lol

  • James

    @Nick Have the rating of Banshee, True Justice and Spartacus???? Please!

  • Ryan Stoppable

    In addition to the above-mentioned by AJ, Phineas and Ferb also hit its highest total viewership since the 104 days of summer vacation.

  • nick90s

    How did TMNT do?

  • Anon

  • Kaylie

  • Chris

    Looks like Banshee is a cinch for renewal–not great #’s, but Cinemax can’t afford to be picky, after Hunted flopped so badly. They really should forget all about rebooting that, now that BBC has canceled it. There’s just no point.

  • Melvin

    Nick do you have victorious on saturday

  • Reache

    @Nick, Do you have this season numbers of Portlandia?
    S3 aired 7/20/12 11:00PM, 12/14/12 10:30PM , 1/4/13 10:00PM & 10:30PM, 1/11/13 10:00PM, 1/18/13 10:00PM, 1/25/13 10:00PM, 1/25/13 10:00PM. If possible, those numbers would be really helpful. Thanks in advance and always appreciate your work!

  • Chris

    Whoops, forgot Banshee was already renewed. Strangely, no mention of Hunted. :)
