    @Nick

    Do you have Wicked Tuna ratings for Sunday? Thanks in advance.

  • Jenna

    TWD currently averages a 5.4 rating while TBBT averages a 5.36 for the season so it’s close. I think TBBT will likely pull ahead soon.

  • Observer

    Thank you Nick.

  • Stefan

    Thanks Nick!

  • THE OLD MAN

    TWD, the top 6, finally some substance at the top of the charts!!

  • Reache

    @Nick,
    Thank you Nick! Really appreciate your hard work!

  • svsnt021

    @Nick
    Thank you ever so much! Appreciate it a lot!

  • Daw Johnson

    How do people know the Grammys had “no effect” on The Walking Dead? Maybe it would have done a 7.0 otherwise.

  • SF

    Kourtney and Kim. Ouch. Beginning of the end??

  • Ian

    @Daw Johnson

    Agreed, I bet there were many a wives, grandparents, or music fanatics who wanted to watch the grammys instead of TWD. I guess we will see next week what the results are!

  • Dillan

    “Kourtney and Kim. Ouch. Beginning of the end??”

    lol, no. The episode was up against the Grammys, it was bound to get low ratings. The spin offs never rated as well as Keeping Up did so I don’t know why people are so surprised the show isn’t rating as high as it. People need to accept the fact that the Kardashians aren’t going anywhere.

  • Bill

    Good for Walking Dead. Love that show

  • h

    Looks like Kourtney and K take Miami is a BIG FLOP. Can you smell cancellation?

  • Audrey

    No @ dillan,the kardashians 15mins will be up just like all other reality stars that have come before them and the proof is in the ratings.you kims fans just have to accept the truth.it was just last year when kim and her sisters were bragging about the ratings of kktny and people said it is because they wanted to see what caused her marriage to crumble and i strongly agree with them.with kims pregnancy you will think that the ratings will be through the roof,but it has gone down hill since then.people are bored its the same drama over and over again.kim is the brands biggest commodity and if kimmie cant bring in the ratings on kktm then their is no way the ratings for kuwtk will be any better.Kktm just like khloe and lamar will get cancelled,the kardashians will spin it that kim had to go and focus on motherhood.then when kuwtk also has terrible ratings,they will say that kanye talked to her and that made her change her mind about reality tv,you know it will happen.i can already see paris laughing @ kim.

  • Dillan

    @Audrey:

    If people only watched KKTNY just to see why her marriage failed, why did those 3million viewers stick around to watch Keeping Up’s 7th season?

  • Audrey

    Kuwtk didnt average 3million viewers on its begining episode,it was able to average 2.5million,,and later towards the season finale it moved up to 3million.i for one believe that kimmies pregnancy is not being welcomed by people hence the massive decline in ratings.the grammys didnt affect kktm because last year when it was up against the grammy(kktny)it had stellar ratings.people are just getting bored with the same drama and hence have moved on.the season premiere had bad ratings and it has been decreasing ever since last month.it is FACT

  • Dillan

    Episodes still got 3million and 2.5million is still very good. Your argument is that people only watched KKTNY because of Kim’s marriage which obviously isn’t the case because people watched Keeping Up’s 7th season. Then one episode of KKTM gets below average ratings and your saying people are getting bored. lol, what a bad argument you have. People aren’t getting bored, ratings are obviously going to increase next week when its not up against the Grammys. And just because KKTNY did decent up against the Grammys doesnt suddenly mean people are “bored” when it didn’t get as high ratings this year

  • Audrey

    @ dillian
    lets wait until next week.if the ratings are still within 1million then you will see the point in what i am saying which is the ratings wont increase they will just remain stagnant or even worse decrease,their ratings since this year have gone from bad to really poor and even stevie wonder can see this.last year was OKAY but this year,it is BAD.the season premiere averaged 2.1million and that is very poor for the kardashians who have always bragged that they average 3.3million.i remember that ever since kktny and kuwtk had massive ratings,kim and her family, have always bragged on twitter(i know this because i sadly follow each of them) about how many viewers their shows have been getting,but ever since the premiere of kktm,they havent said anything about it.E!also releases press statements talking about how marvelous the ratings are but ever since kktm premiered to distasteful ratings,not kim or E! Or her family havent said a word which goes to show that they are displeased at the numbers.they never expected to get 2.1 million for their highly pimped out show neither did they expect 1.5 million the following night.you cant tell me that the show was affected by the grammy the following night and the night after that. If you go through all ratings for kktm you will notice that they can barely average 2million viewers.lets wait and see,if it is still within the 1million range next sunday at least i know their are no more grammys or if it moves up.
