    nick.. ben 10 and young justice ratings please! :)

  • poweranimals

    Nick, can we get the ratings for Wendell & Vinnie, Marvin Marvin, and Supah Ninjas? Thanks.

  • TVMAN

    @Blob. Season 3 started out good, back part of this season has dragged on to the build up of the big battle… But compared to the ‘find Sofia’ plot line in season 2, which dragggged on FOREVER. This doesn’t seem so bad in comparison. I thought last night episode was really good, surprised u said Carl is one of your favorite characters. For me he’s the weakest character… The kid can’t act well, no offense

  • Blob

    @TVMAN

    I didn’t say that. I said the episode featuring just Rick, Carl and Michonne was the only good episode of 2013. Everything else has been terrible. The Governor is a one dimensional child villain that I want to see gone ASAP. This character and everything related to and set in Woodbury is making me hate the show. Had Sophia stayed lost for a 1000 years, nothing will ever drag like the nonsense they’re spinning right now. It’s dreadful. And Andrea finally gets a bit of commonsense and, well, you know the rest. Tedious and meandering.

  • Kaylie

    Disney is doing great. Amazing Sunday night.

  • Cody

    @Jeff (Canada) How can you say “Wow only a 5.5 for Walking Dead”? It is yet AGAIN the #1 show on Sunday night and is having its highest rated season ever. Its down a little from last week, but is still blowing the ratings out of the water and no other show can compete with it on Sunday unless its NFL or some other sport program.

  • Blob

    @Cody

    I think it was internet sarcasm.

  • DJR

    Next week’s TWD should be really high because there are spoilers throughout the ‘net about a major death occurring. The week after that then TWD finale competes with Game of Thrones premiere. TWD should destroy it, but it may not be as high as it could be without the competition.

    Meanwhile, HBO’s Girls is pathetic. It only got 600K total viewers for their finale. Why did they renew it the first week?! Even S3 Hung got 50 percent higher ratings than Girls did and it was canceled. Talk about overrated garbage. Now look at Showtime’s Shameless it’s getting very solid ratings. I think the fact that all episodes are available on Netflix could have helped it gain more of an audience.

  • TV Addict

    @ Canadian Jeff
    Meh. I miss Max. You’re no Max

  • Mike

    I may be getting old & blind but I don’t see Mob Wives on the list again.Good episode too (LOL’ed at the part where Ramona threatens the new girlfriend of Karen’s ex).VH1 must move MW back to 8pm,where it always made the list for over two seasons.

  • Becca

    @Jeff(Canada) I hope you’re being sarcastic. The Walking Dead already has a season 4 renewal.

  • rob60990

    The Client List is very young skewing. Good to see it up!

  • Lmw931

    @Blob
    Totally agree the sooner they kill the governor off the better, I hope he dies in the season finale….

    Glad the Client list is doing well

  • Sonya

    Count me in as someone who has thoroughly loved these so-called “boring” episodes of TWD. Sunday’s episode of “Prey” was nothing but tension and psychological terror. “The Guv-nor” has been toned down a bit from the graphic novels. I have really enjoyed the build up to his all out sociopath insanity instead of immediately being confronted with it as in the graphic novels.

    The Walkers will always be a menacing threat. However, no one is more dangerous in this post-apocalyptic zombie-infested world than other surviving humans. Humans being the ones to fear the most, is what TWD has always been about. Two more episodes to go. I think the networks should just stand down on Sunday nights and regroup after March 31st.

  • Inigo

    Walking Dead #1 in 18-49 at 5.5 TBBT #2 with 4.8

  • OWN Fan

    If or whenever you post ratings, please post ratings to OWN’s ‘Super Soul Sunday’

  • JeffT

    Introducing all the younger cast members doesn’t seem to have helped Army Wives. Catherine Bell had better watch her back. She’s the last of the original cast women. The others are either gone or reduced to part time status.

  • Melanie P.

    Way to go RHOA!!

  • Darma

    Just chiming in to show my love of GIRLS. Can’t wait for S3!!!

  • Scandalfan

    Yay for TWD. Since the Governor character was introduced this show is a bomb in a good way. I hope they don’t kill the Gov.
