    @Dom and @BBFan — then say that. Just using the word “pig” suggests you are calling Dunham fat and promoting women’s body disorders instead of criticizing the work. Be clearer and say what you mean.

  • Bill

    BTW – Where is Nick? He’s the one that gives us all the rest of the ratings. Thanks Nick!!! Where are you?

  • poweranimals

    @Bill I think he’s probably watching the comments laughing. “Dance puppets, dance!”

  • samurai99

    @JR

    True. Airing three showings a night with no major drama as a lead-in hasn’t done either show any favors. But it isn’t really a mistake. The only reason they’re doing it is because Luck got cancelled and they didn’t have any other series ready.

    @Big Brother

    It’s called repeat airings, OnDemand, and HBOGo. Learn the difference between bragging rights and how premium cable actually makes money.

  • Buffy

    The Client List Premiered to a 1.0 rating last year.

    The Series Low was 0.8

    The Series High was 1.1

  • Ron

    Yeah! TWD kicked The Bible’s butt:)

  • Meanie

    I’ve never seen girls but is all the blacklash towards Lena b/c what her friend tweeted w/ the whole N- Word thing or something else??? Just asking?

    I believe ppl expected it to live up to Sex and The City deep down.

    All honesty never heard of her until the N-word thing that a friend of hers said came about.

  • Leah

    Nick – please provide us with ratings for Girls! <3 Such an amazing yet real episode

  • Tabitha

    This episode of TWD was a bit boring but I can’t wait to see what’s coming :) :) :) :) :)

  • Dan

    TWD was great i did not find it boring at all. Not every episode has to be action packed. Overall this season has been incredible, cant wait to see whats coming next!

    “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.”

    I couldn’t agree with you more. I suspect that all some people want is more brainless zombie action and less talking in every episode. That definitely would be very boring.

  • Reache

    Thanks @Nick!! :)

  • Marc

    Girls up again! Great news. People finally start loving it.:-)

  • samurai99

    Thanks Nick, but how come Girls wasn’t on the top 100 list even though it had a .41 rating? Are ratings just slow for that show?

  • svsnt021

    @Nick
    Thanks so very kindly, Nick!!! Always appreciate your valuable information!!!

  • Andrew

    Hahaha, Girls literally didn’t lose a single viewer in comparison to last week! Girls is a beast! Talk about steady! *points and laughs at everyone ranting about Girls loses viewers every week*

  • David

    @samurai99

    As indicated by the red text, if a show isn’t in the top 100 in 24-54 demo, it won’t appear in the list, even if it IS in the top 100 for 18-49.

  • James

    Thanks @Nick. Have the ratings of Banshee and True Justice??? (Friday 03/08)

  • Gabriel Roa

    THE CLIENT LIST!!! GOOOD!!! IF YOU GET THE SAME AUDIENCE TILL THE END! WE WILL HAVE A THIRD SEASON!
