    @JohnA

    Some TWD repeats even beat a original Revenge Lol.

    I noticed that too. LOL!

  • coolioni

    I guess Blood and Chrome did not to too well on sunday since it has not been listed.
    I knew it would be bad by the night they had put it on.

    I seems like SyFy picked thr absolte wqorst night they possibly could to play it on.

    They were sitting on the show for over a year and then played it on a night that had the Grammys, Walking Dead,and Once upon a time.

    I am sure the Execs at SyFy did not the movie to do well becuase then they would have to explain why they would not put the show to series.

    They did basicly no advertising for it even though they spent something like 10 million to make the 2 hour movie.

    They even did not do an encore showing that night like theey always do when playing a new movie.

    What a joke this network has turned into.

  • Sel

    I guess Girls – 0,1 with 0,20 viewers.

  • Meanie

    Ive never seen the Revenge but can someone tell me why everyone hates or make fun of that show. Like on every ratings post the rag on it. Is the show really that horrible ???

  • Shane

    I agree with a lot of people who are saying it was a weak episode. Especially for the first episode to return with but that in know way does that means the series is tanking. Hell when you have ratings like that your doing something right. Quite impressive for so many repeats to bring in good ratings thru the day.

    I agree Andrea’s speech was annoying, but there are still going to be a lot of viewers who are going to want to know who gets it next on the TWD. I’t will be interesting to see ratings wise where the series is in a couple of weeks.

  • MichaelChickless

    I guess I don’t understand the attraction to zombies. Is the show really that good?

  • Observer

    Blood and Chrome has already been out via webisodes and they switched the time it was aired. Not surprised it doesn’t show up on the list. I wonder what it did do, though?

  • Guardian Owl

    I didn’t even know blood and Chrome aired on Sunday until I started seeing reviews for it trickle out for it was able to set it to record on Monday.

  • Dan S

    I’ve got Blood & Chrome on my DVR, not sure when I’ll watch it though. The only show I definitely watch the same day it airs is TWD. Of course it helps I get the east coast feed & see it at 6pm.

  • chris

    Haha haters!!! The Walking Dead was awesome as always…

  • UKTVFan

    Hi Nick, do you have the numbers for Ripper Street (Saturday) and the BAFTAs (Sunday) on BBC America? As always, thanks for giving us these extra ratings!

  • Ram510

    Does anybody have Young Justice numbers

  • illone21

    I don’t see Walking Dead losing it’s top spot anytime soon. That show is a beast!!

  • David Howell

    How close is TWD to TBBT over the season for the title of #1 scripted show in television?

  • romo

    aaarg….pirates….aaarg !!

  • Poweranimals

    Supah Ninjas ratings, please?

  • Ryann

    @Meanie
    Revenge is a really good show that has took a tumble half way through its second season. A guy called Max constantly comments about how bad it is but it is actually very good and cleverly written. The first season is better compared to this season, but watch it and judge for yourself =)

  • Scandalfan

    TWD did well but it will not keep that kind of ratings, it was a midseason premier folks tuned in to see the outcome of the fightclub. I still watch TWD but I lost interest when they killed Shane, I’m still mad.

  • kevin

    Why is it that there are no ratings for Californication… AGAIN?
    I just want an explanation.
