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

  • Frank

    Poor scheduling by NGC. Why would you put Lincoln on up against the All-Star Game and Walking Dead??

  • MichaelChickless

    The Flopping Dead. I kid.

  • Ram510

    Wow Young Justice got a .7 on a saturday morning and is one of CN’s highest rated shows for the week and they are going to cancel it????? Dumb move CN

  • RatingsRaceFan

    @Nick,

    Could you provide Winx Club ratings (Nickelodeon, Sunday 1:00 pm) please? Thank you.

  • Ike

    Yeah, I’ve never watched Young Justice but I’m baffled that they would cancel something getting an 0.7. I guess it must have something to do with demos. After all, adults 18-49 is not their target demo. Kids are their target demo. Maybe Young Justice does poorly with boys 6-13 or whatever? Is the total viewer number largely coming from adult fans of such classic shows as BTAS, perhaps? Or maybe it is just too expensive to produce? Maybe DC takes all the merchandising money? Who knows? Cartoon Network, so confounding.

  • Max

    Is MOB WIVES dead?

  • Nick

    Winx (Nickelodeon)
    -1 PM: 1.382 million viewers, 0.29 A18-49

    Mob Wives (VH1)
    -10 PM: 0.849 million viewers, 0.41 A18-49

  • Max

    Thanks Nick.

    Amazing. VH1 moved the show from a very successful 8PM slot to 10PM and the ratings decreased by half in the demo. This will be the show’w last season. VH1 pretty much ruined the franchise.

  • BigBrotherFan

    LMAO Girls is such a FLOP! BATTLESHIP EVEN MADE THE LIST! How sad.
    GIRLS CANCELED SOONER THAN LATER FLOP!

    That PIG LENA DUNHAM should stick to writing boring, sub par, hipster trash that makes no sense.

  • cas

    So if a show makes this list, does that mean it has a good chance of being renewed? Like what are good ratings for showtime and syfy?

  • Meanie

    @Ram510 & @ike
    i agree with both ya that im surpised that they are cancelling Young Justice. I actually like that show but ya to remember that with cartoons shows its about ratings yea, but with kid shows its mostly about selling toys, merchandise && etc…..

    I they probably are not moving enough merchandise thats why they are replacing it with a remake of Batman which we know will sell out no matter what

  • Brad

    The Walking Dead is Amazing!!! I hate to see Shameless drop though. Everyone must watch it at 11 like me. Does anyone have those numbers?

  • Jonathan

    RHOA is finally feeling the effect of Kim Zolciak leaving!! She’s one of the most popular housewives! Can’t wait for her new show this spring!

  • Mon

    @Brad
    I always record the 12am Shameless airing! There’s too much good TV on Sundays and even my DVR couldn’t handle it. I don’t want to pay additional $20+/month just to upgrade my DVR so I just settle with later airings for cable shows. Shameless is doing fine and it’s already renewed.

  • H Callahan

    Shahs of sunset giving Kktm a run for the ratings.

  • Werz

    @ BigBrotherFan

    Girls will just have to be content with the millions of views it gets cumulatively theough On-Demand & HBO Go, and all of the awards it’s won, I guess.

  • Kathy

    Since there are no Saturday cable ratings, I wondered if you have any info on how the Psych Slumber Party did? I saw the ratings for the first two on your Friday ratings. Thanks.

  • Reache

    @Nick,
    Thanks a million, Nick!!

  • Bill

    The Walking Dead was great, much better than last week. Can’t wait for the next episode.
    I can’t believe that Battleship made the list, that many people didn’t see it in the theater lol
    Are those #’s good for Ripper Street? They seem bad.
