  • Brandy

    Good for Client List

  • Carl

    What people don’t talk about with TWD is how they have made you care about the people involved. Even if some of the writing isn’t always that great, I care about Rick, Glenn, Maggie, Daryl, Michonne, Hershel, etc. I think this view is reflected in the ratings. Even if it’s not always shootings and zombie gore, the people involved make you want to see more.

  • JacobYates

    @Matt
    I couldn’t agree more.

  • John

    The next 3 episodes of The Walking Dead will be very intense. The ratings will certainly go over 6.0 in the last 2 episodes.

    PS. I heard ABC are working on a new zombie searies called The Dead Walking.

  • DenverDean

    @Samurai99 8 Duck Dynasty episodes? I could at least 15(!) in that list. Clearly a marathon that worked.

  • Sonya

    To each his own but I don’t think The Walking Dead has been boring at all. Sunday’s episode “Arrow On the Doorpost” was tension filled from the get go. Last week’s episode, “Clear” written by new showrunner Scott Gimple, is one of the best of the series. The show is not about killing zombies all the time that would be boring.

    The ratings are insane for these “build up” episodes but they would be even higher if EVERY way of viewing were being accounted for.

  • Poweranimals

    What are the numbers for Shake It Up? Also Wendell & Vinnie, Supah Ninjas, and Power Rangers?

  • cody

    @jade, thanks!!!

  • Ron

    Nice Mary, I hope you never have daughters

  • THE OLD MAN

    Kids just love their ducks–”rubber duckie, you’re the one.”

  • yeahdude

    Also, the Spongebob Squarepants premiere at 10:30am.

  • Meanie

    Congrats TWD & The Bible.
    Personally I thought the TWD was great Sunday. You could feel the “Build Up”. At some points I thought they was going to go at it at the moment. But these finally episodes I know will be good.

    I guess Duck Dynasty is now the new Pop Culture Phenom. It dominated this list.

  • BigBrotherFan

    @Mary

    ahaha! I know, right? That pathetic pig slob DUNHAM shows has only cracked this list maybe twice this year. HOW PATHETIC! This piece of crap is not catching on. Even with the GG that HBO paid for!

    Great SHAMELESS! Thats a good show! Like to see it’s steady.

    Not bad for THE CLIENT LIST.

  • Olin

    @Cody, The Client List series premiere was 0.9 in 18-49, season finale was 1.0.

  • Croq

    Good to see that The Bible held onto some good numbers. It’s down a bit, but still very good numbers – it beat just about every show that was on the networks…

  • MichaelChickless

    Is TWD officially now a phenomenon?

  • DougF

    @Nick

    Where do you get 10 million from?

    It was down 2.5 million

  • taylor

    I love Lena Dunham and Girls!

  • Andrew

    GIRLS has been amazing this season…

  • Sarah

    Personally, I agree with Sonya & Meanie. I’ve been loving these past couple episodes. It’s all about the build up. I mean, they’re 3 episodes from the finale. Why would they start all the action now?

    Can’t wait for when they do, though :)
