    Wow, The Game Plan over 4 million? Disney is on a roll!!!! :D

  • Mr Mikey

    Good numbers for Smackdown.

  • TJ

    Spartacus not being viewed by many in it’s final season.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Why do Disney movies score higher than the shows.

  • nick90s

    What was TMNTs numbers?

  • disney rocks

    @Twist of Fate- I guess cause more adults will like to watch the movie than the shows (Ex: Toy Story 3). Plus, more people will want to catch the movies when they’re on television as they aren’t on a near as much as their shows. They’re kind of like a hardly ever thing as each movie will only air a few times a year, so people will want to watch them when they’re show. Especially older movies/theatre movie (Ex: Beauty and the Beast).

  • Rand

    Anyone have #s of”Banshee” on Cinemax and “Portlandia” on IFC ?

  • Joe

    TWD got 12.3 million viewers and a 6.1 demo. That’s easily the highest ever on basic cable. Only The Sopranos got numbers this high.

    Does this site know the highest numbers The Sopranos reached in viewers and demo in an episode?

  • outlawz

    Mark “ratings’ Henrry was on SD of course id did great

  • buttondiet

    Where can I find out the ratings for Jenny McCarthy’s hot mess of a talk show?

  • Timmy

    .3 for Spartacus? That looks fishy. Not sure I’m buying that.

  • Mitchell

    Banshee ratings would be appreciated

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Nick or Bob
    Please post the ratings for life with boys!!! (Wednesday 8-9pm on teennick) been asking since Wednesday!!!!!!!
    Please post them!!!!!!!!!

  • The End

    I’m still wondering why they need to be so graphic with their man on man loving in Sparticus WOTD. Utterly fake looking battlegrounds aside, this show would be better without less emphasis on that lol

    Some of the digital sets in this show look dreadful, like the show has diverted its budget elsewhere.

  • jaybpov

    Spartacus!!

    How the mighty have fallen! The show has fallen to Agron and Nasir having man on man sex each episode. Where’s the hot babes and great storylines? This show misses Andy (R.I.P.) Hannah, Lawless and Bianca(Ilithyia).

  • r0ckmypants

    @Timmy – All three episodes of Spartacus this season have been 0.3.

  • nibehlung

    LOL @ the hypocrite homophobes here. It’s okay to have graphic het sex or female/female sex but it’s not okay to have male/male sex scene?

  • silvit

    @Joe

    There was an episode of The Sopranos -maybe in season 4 or 5- which got something like 13 million viewers. The finale got 11 million viewers if I’m not mistaken. And you have to remember HBO availability, which make all of this even more impressive.
