    @Dillan
    Where can I see The Real World Rating then?

  • Dillan

    @dffg:

    TheFutonCritic.com will probably have it up soon when they post the ratings.

  • PurpleDrazi

    I started to freak out a bit until I remembered The Americans wasn’t on last night.

  • dfffg

    REAL WORLD PORTLAND horrible debut just 700K viewers, ranks No 19 in W12-34

  • Anon

    9 year old drake and josh beating most of the Saturday night shows! Hahahaha

  • Claire

    So the season of Boston’s Finest is already finshed.
    TNT should’ve better saved the money from this show and save it for new episodes of Southland. Sadly the ratings for Southland are bad.
    But compared to the ratings of last year, it doesn’t look that bad.
    What are the chances of new season anyway?

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    The Colbert Report always skews older than the Daily Show, but never that much. It’s usually a 56-60 type of deal. The Daily Show was 48% of demo.

  • Adrian

    If the numbers keep steady, USA would be insane not to extend next season’s order from 8 to 16. And god, I hope it’s not the final season if Roday and the cast want to keep going, because frankly, I think they’re just starting to hit their stride. Then again, I’m a guy who thought it was brilliant since day 1, but yeah. This has been a really strong 5 episodes so far.

  • Adrian

    lol, with Colbert, that’s all the seniors who actually think he’s super conservative and believes everything he says.

  • Guest

    How does stupid teen mom rate better than The Real World? Whose watching teen mom?… Stop!

  • Cameron

    Sadly, I’d watch the real world any day over buckwild. The season premiere was very good.

  • Recollected

    The Real World: Portland (10:00) – MTV
    0.720 million viewers, #14; 0.547 million adults 18-49 (0.4 rating), #7

  • brandojames

    Good episode of Psych. Glad the 100th episode was packed with guests. Would have loved to see Tim Curry for the all Clue reunion. But it was still cool and fun nonetheless. I’m surprised both the east and west coast chose different endings though!

  • Andies

    This is the nail in the coffin for The Real World.. bout time people have started to reject this mess. Real World been a mess for at least 8 years.. It’s not what it once was.. it’s sad to see it go out like this. What started as a great social experiment now ends up a drunken, hook up fight fest show.. How sad RIP RW…

    THE STREAK IS OVER!
    THE STREAK IS OVER!
    THE STREAK IS OVER!

    Those were some monster numbers from the Heat/Bulls game, it just shows that should be the series for the Eastern Conference Finals every year.

    Congratulations on Psycho hitting 100.

    RW is dead, they need to kill that show they do nothing different with the show or take it to different cities. I think one of the things that would’ve helped out RW is if it was setup like Big Brother was with a 24/7 feed on the roommates and stuff.

  • A

    It is so much easier to go through these comments to look for additional ratings now that all the children have gone away since their terrible ABC Family shows are over.

  • Brandon

    Only thing I watched Wednesday night was the Psych 100th. That was a fantastic episode!

  • bob

    Duck Dynasty must be an incredible tv show. I never watched it but it seems to be very popular.

  • bob

    Warner Bros. produces both “Southland” and “Advocates,” so one could reasonably assume that McKenzie’s casting means that the studio is fairly confident that “Southland,” currently airing its fifth season, won’t return for Season 6.

    Just for information for Southland fans. I don’t believe it will return but for those of you who hold out hope…best of luck!

  • Will

    Ben McKenzie and Shawn Hatosy both signed on for “second-position pilots,” meaning if Southland doesn’t get renewed for a sixth season, they each have a pilot gig lined up (for example, Advocates). If it does get renewed, than their priority will be Southland.
