    Glad to see Jessie go up :)

  • LovingLostGirl

    Best show your not watching…”Banshee” on Cinemax. Any ratings?

  • Sel

    I can’t believe that ‘Banshee’ is not a blockbuster, that show is addictive.

  • noob

    Nice for Jessie. I expect the wizards reunion to slay next weeks ratings.

  • Jacob

    Happy that JESSIE won the night of viewers

  • Zoniako

    Banshee ratings please.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Banshee is definitely awesome. Another big fight Friday between Hood and Proctor. And that Amish girl in a bikini! You just KNOW Proctor’s going to be banging his niece before long, she keeps doing that. A little incest isn’t beyond this show, trust me! :-)

  • dexterfan

    people need to start watching banshee. it’s a must.

  • .

    I’m really surprised that Robot Combat League is getting the ratings it is, .04 because it seems like a good match up for the WWE crowd. OTH, I’ll bet it’s cheaper than Lost Girl or Merlin(even if Syfy buys/bought them secondhand) so although it’s ratings are no better, that might be considered a ‘win’ for Syfy: same bang, less bucks.

  • Jay

    Any numbers for IFCs Out There over the past few weeks? Thanks!

  • Reache

    @Nick,
    Do you have last two seasons of “Portlandia” on IFC?
    1st season aired ’11 1/21, 1/28, 2/4, 2/11, 2/18, and 2/25 every Friday 10:30p.m.
    2nd season aired ’12 1/6, 1/13, 1/20, 1/27, 2/3, 2/10, 2/17, 2/24, 3/2, and 3/9 every Friday 10:00p.m.
    Please post them if available. I’m really thankful to you for giving the outside-100 numbers every week.

    Syfy really screwed this one up. “Merlin” has five episodes left, and it’s “postponed” for eight weeks until Syfy can try to recruit a bigger audience for “Robot Combat League.” The result? The #1 scripted series on Syfy had an audience that measured between 1.3 million and 2 million in that same time slot, with ratings of 0.4 to 0.6 … WITH VIRTUALLY NO ON-AIR PROMOTION or marketing spend by Syfy. They seemed to hold “Merlin” in disdain despite what it was doing for them. Now, they are airing a MUCH more expensive series, spending a heck of a lot to promote it on-air, and the results are substantially worse (in terms of viewers) than the weakest episode of “Merlin” and a rating that is exactly the same. You know what the song says, “You don’t love what you’ve got until it’s gone.” Unfortunately, Syfy has so enraged “Merlin” viewers that they will be lucky to get even CLOSE to what they were getting before once they finally bring it back.

    Their last-second schedule changes on “Merlin” were really a boneheaded move.

  • GAC Fan

    Even though last Fridays episode of Ghost Adventures was a “Special/Recap”, it was a NEW “Special/Recap” and am surprised that absolutely NONE of these ever made the top 100. Only the regular new episodes of new lockdown locations seem to make it into the mid-50’s of the ratings.

    Where could I find exactly where these “Special/Recap” episodes ended up in the ratings overall? Any help would be appreciated.

  • James

    Banshee rating??? please!
