    Go Disney!!! :D

  • Poweranimals

    I was hoping for at least 4 million for Jessie. :-(

  • Mike

    Jessie <3

  • CartoonLover

    Not bad for Gravity Falls. I hope a 2nd season is announced. :)

  • THE OLD MAN

    Go Gold Rush!

  • Ryan

    Banshee ratings ?

  • jamie

    Disney is doing well.

  • Reache

    @Nick,
    IFC’s Portlandia numbers please?
    Thanks in advance :)

  • Michael

    someone tell me why psych is getting cancelled while repeating to a 0.4

  • Mitchell

    Greg Yaitanes tweeted that Banshee’s episode this week did better than the pilot in terms of ratings, no exact numbers though

  • Twist Of Fate

    Jessie Got It’s Regular Numbers For A 1 Hour Special Why Is That So Special To Disney Fans

  • A very true TV fan 1986

    Good job, Phineas and Ferb, Jessie and Gravity Falls! I love these shows so very much!

  • Jeremy Williams

    @nick DEGRASSI RATINGS PLEASE? :)

  • Jay

    Gravity Falls did quite well, considering it has been over four months since the last new episode. I was fearing the worst, that perhaps a lot of its audience had grown tired of the wait and just moved on (especially considering how a lot of them are arguably not the typical Disney audience.)

  • Kaylie

    @Twist of Fate.. Its because it was at 8:00. The anchor slot which usually goes to Ant Farm.

  • Hillbilly

    Who hit the mother load on Gold Rush? I’m hoping it’s Parker. It’s probably the old grouch Fred.

  • Dan S

    @Michael, there’s no word on Psych getting cancelled. What I do know is Maggie Lawson is leaving the show to do a new series with James Caan. My guess is contracts are up so it’s likely up to the cast & producers if they want to continue. I’m sure USA would love to keep it around longer.

  • Kike Kikerson

    Looking at all the terrible tv Friday night, I’m appalled that Spartacus and Banshee don’t even register.

    Spartacus has really fallen in quality(imo) since the first season, but it still is a quality show.

    And while Banshee isn’t gonna win any awards, and it’s just a little too “out there” for a show based somewhat on reality(I’ll give an example in a minute), it is a very enjoyable hour of tv run by a proven tv guy in Alan Ball…..yet no one is watching.

    One quick example for Banshee being a little too out there…..there are many, but one that kinda had me shake my head was the third episode when he was fighting the boxer guy. Now for a reality based show(by that I mean it’s real life stuff and nothing at all “supernatural”), are you telling me a local cop can invade a live event at a casino and beat someone senseless? Imagine a UFC event in Atlantic City. The champion of the world is in town for a title bout. While the fight is about to begin, a cop walks up and proceeds to start a 4 minute brawl that goes into the crowd weapons and all????? And no one stops it? Bouncers? Security? Law enforcement? While it was an awesome scene and I was like OH S*IT, it kinda takes me out of the moment how over the top and unbelieveable it is.
