  • cody

    Just for comparison, what numbers did the client list have for its season one premiere last year and its finale?
    thanks

  • Stefan

    @Nick

    WWE Main Event, Saturday Morning Slam and AM Raw please- Thanks in advance!

  • Matt C.

    If TWD is getting numbers like these for the filler, “calm before the storm” episodes, I can’t even imagine how high the finale will climb.

  • The Old Woman

    That was the most boring episode of TWD that I have ever seen. I think the ratings will be done a bit for the next episode.

    Since TWD is now regularly beating The Big Bang Theory, is it now the top rated show on TV?

  • John A

    TWD not that good lately. Im surprised the ratings arent down a bit. Its a unstopable beast. Decent for The Client List.

  • space

    @Nick

    Do you have Transformers: Prime, Justice League: Unlimited, and Dragon Ball Z Kai on the CW, Saturday morning? – Thanks!

  • Nick

    The Bible lost 10 million viewers? Doesn’t surprise me… Christians are only religious when they want to be!

  • JacobYates

    Vikings still did pretty good. I blame daylight savings for the drop.

  • rob60990

    Ok for The Client List. It did grow from Army Wives.

    DST excuse does not apply to a 10pm show but nice try.

  • richard

    @ matt c

    I think it will be in the mid to high 6’s

  • Alex

    How did House Of Lies do? Can anybody post their numbers throughout this season so far?

  • RatingsRaceFan

    @Nick,

    I would like the Power Rangers Megaforce and Winx Club numbers from Saturday and Sunday. Thank you for the ratings you provide each week.

  • PurpleDrazi

    Vikings is still doing well but they better pick it up. For a show that is supposed to be about raiding and pillaging it sure was boring last night.

    The Walking Dead was kind of boring as well but at least you could tell they were building up to something big.

  • SarahL

    Yay, The Walking Dead! Continuing to kick butt!

  • samurai99

    @JacobYates

    Eh, rarely does a show manage to maintain the numbers its season premeire gets. Anything above a 1.0 is a guarenteed renewal.

    Eight Duck Dynasty reruns in one day? That seems excessive…

  • Jade

    @Cody

    The Client List premiered to 2.8 million viewers and the first season finale was watched by 2.73million total viewers. Unfortunately I couldn’t find demo numbers. By comparison the second season was down but I dont ever remember The Client List beating Army Wives in the demo last year.

  • Sel

    Shameless deserves more than that, I know that SHOWTIME is really satisfied with the numers it’s getting, but to me it feels like it’s not getting the buzz it should be.

  • Mark

    It’s interesting to realize that the top 4 cable shows on Sunday were about zombies.

  • Mary

    As much as the media shoves that pig Lena Dunham down our throats, you’d think her show could manage to crack the top 100.

  • Matt

    Not a suprise that the rating for Vikings plummeted. That’s what happens when you put the episode on your website the week before and advertise it that way.
