    Doesn’t seem like using Tru for the 4th game outlet is that wise.

  • John A

    Lmao SVU Repeats beat CW shows on USA .

  • Alienware

    If Gulf Coast keeps going forward in the bracket they could wreck some record for NCAA basketball.

  • Andies

    MTV ran the first season of Real World on friday.. I guess it tanked cause I don’t see it here.. Goes to show kids today don’t how to appreciate good stuff..

  • forg

    No Friday Broadcast finals yet?

  • Anna Bones Clarkwood

    1. A couple cable NCAA games beat the game on CBS. I don’t watch these games but I would think CBS would get first choice of which game to air. Meaning they’d try to pick the one that would get the best demo (maybe even viewers).

    2. L&O SVU repeats are always doing really good. Are the ones without Chris Meloni being shown across the weeks (aka this isn’t about just Fri)? If so, it appears as if NBC should keep churning the episodes out b/c the syndication value seems to be really high.

  • Jonathan

    Hmmmm… Is TruTV not as widely available on basic cable?

  • John

    Syfy’s brilliant replacement of “Merlin” with “Robot Combat League” no longer even rates AND they made the doubly brilliant move of releasing the final episodes BEFORE they air on Syfy. Is that the sound of an axe falling on some programming executive’s head?

  • Jay

    Any numbers for IFCs Out There? Thanks!

  • Evan

    Hmm I’m kinda shocked the real world isn’t on here! Mtv really was promoting the replaying of the old seasons and it was trending on twitter for most of the weekend. I would have thought it would pull at least a .3

  • John K.

    Curious about Teen Nick’s ratings for Degrassi. Is that not considered basic cable?
