    If were all sticking around for these boring episodes, the finale is going to be HUGE. My guess is a new series high for The Walking Dead in two weeks.

  • One

    How DARE Bible steal viewers from Walking Dead! Walking Dead deserves them more!!!

  • Meanie

    TWD probably found some competition in the ratings department.

    TWD was a good episode last night.

    Question? Kinda off topic but why does everyone hate Girls(HBO) or the girl Luna??? Is it her acting, weight or that N word situation?? Just wondering. Not calling anybody out or nothing.

  • Seth

    The Bible is the best show on TV…I can’t wait to see what happens next episode! My favorite character is Jesus, I hope he survives and becomes King!

  • nerv

    Looks like broadcast networks will have to prepare for March 31st. TWD season finale and GOT season premiere. Obviously the former will win the night but it’ll be a bloodbath for network TV shows.

  • nerv

    The Bible only affected TWD in viewership. Ratings-wise, both shows are stable enough.

  • Brian J

    This is one reason why I think NBC will pick up The Sixth Gun, which isn’t exactly the same but appears to be in the same vein as TWD.

  • SJ

    @Seth

    LOL! Read that comment back to yourself and hear how ridiculous it sounds. :D

    OK, will The Bible, The Walking Dead et al. ever end so that the broadcasters could possibly get some kind of bump on this night?

  • Brian

    Any ratings on Vh1 shows for the night? Mob Wives and Wicked Single?

  • Jeff (Canada)

    @nerv

    It looks like most networks will be taking the night off, on March 31st. Sure, they’re using the excuse of Easter, but we all know it’s just a co-incidence. What they’re really afraid of is the combo of Walking Dead and GoT. But I wonder, will those two cannibalize each others ratings? Or perhaps most people (like myself) will watch TWD at 9 and then watch the 10pm encore ep of the GoT premiere right after, instead of having to choose between the two shows at 9pm.

  • SarahL

    Yay, The Walking Dead!

  • r0ckmypants

    @Nick – “Army Wives is getting clobbered by Walking Dead”

    I don’t really think there’s much audience overlap in these two shows…

  • Luke

    Wasn’t Bates Motel supposed to air last night? Shouldn’t it be on this list?

  • DW

    as a fan of both Girls and TWD , i can see where people hate the show. i love girls for being edgy and showing flaws in people. a lot of the criticism seems to stem from a sexist / jealous point of view which is funny that insecure people hate a show about insecure people. :)

  • Dom

    Nice to see that fiction like the walking dead ,the Bible, and shameless are doing well in the ratings

  • LJ

    @Jeff I doubt they will cannibalize each other, they’ll destroy any of the broadcast competition though. Unfortunately I’m forced to choose, I’m watching Game of Thrones at 9PM because I love it slightly more than I love the Walking Dead. I’ll catch the Walking Dead rerun. I hope some of the broadcast networks aren’t actually airing fresh originals on the 31st. That would be a waste.

  • Petar Ivanov

    WHat will air history channel after the bible finale on sundays?

  • Petar Ivanov

    @Wasn’t Bates Motel supposed to air last night? Shouldn’t it be on this list?

    Monday NOT sunday.

  • Luke

    @Petar Ivanov

    Thank you, I was definitely worried then for a second aha

  • Ryan

    It’s a shame the Valvano doc didn’t do better, it was amazing and heartwarming.
