    Mob Wives ratings have been bad since the end of the 2nd season and this season is just continuing the trend. The show was getting dominated at 8 going up against RHOA so they moved it to 10 where it got a .8 which is a high for this season. VH1 didn’t kill Mob Wives, Mob Wives killed itself. The show is beyond boring now and nothing ever happens.

  • Jennifer

    Thanks Nick!

  • Kaylie

    Beautiful night for Disney. Moving Shake it Up to 9:00 was probably the best thing Disney has done the past year. Who knew Dog with a Blog would be an amazing lead in? Plus, Austin and Ally drew huge numbers. This is a monster show in the making.

  • Mike

    VH1 better move Mob Wives back to 8pm.Where it never went below a million.

  • Mike

    Evan-I still enjoy Mob Wives and it is not boring for me.The rehab,Hurricane Sandy,Lee out of prison & the addition of Love Majewski makes a lively season 3.

    The bottom line is that if Mob Wives was left alone at 8pm,it would still be getting a million+ viewers on a very bad night for VH1.

  • BB

    RHOA is still doing great for the franchise, but this past episode was all fun. Plus Nene is hardly ever on since she’s in LA. I honestly think it would be better if Kim was still on it, she has a real life that is interesting. I know that she said she would be on the reunion and I really hope that she decides to come back next season. Can’t wait for her spinoff

  • TAG

    Why do you think moving SIU to 9pm was a great move? Just curious. It definitely holds it’s own at that time (and has opened a new half hour for Disney) but the 8:30 slot (now A&A) always seems to get better ratings.

  • Katie_B

    Awesome for The Walking Dead, it was an intense episode, especially the end. Next week’s should be great too, I can’t wait!

  • ugh yeah

    LMAO at the Kim Zolciak plants in here. RHOA is doing fine and nobody other than her paid minions miss her on the show!

  • danielcw

    I need a primer on Cartoon Network.

    Does anybody know the average rating for Cartoon Network?

    What kind of numbers do they expect for a Saturday noon?

    Based on the numbers from Nick, from this week alone, I see no reason why they should cancel Young Justice & Green Lantern, but not the other shows.

    @Nick: thank you for the numbers.
