    what a riveting episode of the walking dead. next week we see rick hopscotching to woodbury for the full hour. :)

  • samurai99

    Girls and enlightened repeat three times a night and are available online, it’s no surprise that people watch them around the walking dead. I hope Enlightened gets renewed.

    The people that think Girls is going to get cancelled are in a painful level of denial. Shows like Nurse Jackie, the Big C, the Borgias, the Pitch, and Small town Security stick around with lower ratings. And they don’t have the critical acclaim and awards.

  • Andrea

    Why does Shameless get so little buzz?

  • DW

    i catch girls earlier in the day on demand.

  • WoWza

    So NETWORK TV is becomon irrelevent. Im serious.

    ABC neds to recognize this and renew OUAT and Revenge easily because their numbers are higher than most cable; they need to compare themselves with cable for now on.

  • WoWza

    Also, Shameless is a huge hit now for Showtime. Its going to be renewed for a 5th and 6th season – I’m sure of it. Definite franchise for Showtime now.

  • Jake

    Nick ratings for ben 10 young justice and STAR WARS THE CLONE WARS!!!!!!!!! please
    and thank you!

  • Fanperson

    So TWD wins the night… wouldn’t it be more appropriate to use a screen shot from the actual show instead of one from a bad Saturday Night Live skit that wasn’t even that funny?! Happy for The Walkinf Dead, though. it was an amazing, well-written episode!

  • Meanie

    Oh snap I haven’t seen Mob Wives on this list in so long and here it is out of nowhere. Lol

  • poweranimals

    Ratings for Power Rangers, Wendell & Vinnie, Marvin Marvin, and Supah Ninjas please?

  • Robert

    LOVE Girls this season. Such a brilliant show. But I’m really anxious for Enlightened numbers – hope HBO renews it. That was one of the best season/series finale of a show I’ve ever seen.

  • SarahL

    Nice for The Walking Dead and Talking Dead!

    The picture is from SNL. Haven’t see the skit yet.

  • Gtown

    @nick –

    do you have ratings for Wicked Tuna.

    Thanks in advance.

  • SJ

    Only in Amurrica would a show called The Bible rate this high… *smh*

  • Colin

    Fantastic for Girls- it rose again! It deserves it, great show!

  • Gtown

    Thanks @nick. Should have read your post.

  • Rich

    Thanks @Nick. Not as strong as I would have hoped, but I certainly hope that people who haven’t seen it will watch this week.

    Here’s hoping for a season 3!

  • samurai99

    Thanks Nick!

  • Rabbit

    Looks like it’ll be a miracle if Enlightened is renewed. Also, I believe Shameless has already been renewed.
