    lol TALKING DEAD beat GoT

    ROFL

  • JacobYates

    New record for Walking Dead! Vikings also stable! Woohoo!

  • CBSviewer

    The Walking Dead is a beast :)

  • JacobYates

    I was spot on with my Walking Dead and Vikings predictions and was only off one tenth on Game of Thrones and Bible.

  • PurpleDrazi

    @Densino

    Not really a fair comparison since HBO is premium pay cable and in much fewer households than AMC.

  • Jeff (Canada)

    Oh wow, Walking Dead only got a 6.4. I think it’s time they think about wrapping things up, I don’t see it surviving with those ratings. :\

  • Mark

    I wish the news would stop talking about how the bible was so close in ratings to twd, it wasn’t even remotely close where it matters. I guess The Bible should be on cbs.

    and I echo what purple said, you can’t compare talking dead and got due to the premium fee you pay for hbo.

  • zerg

    OMG TWD 6.4….Great for the Bible e GOT

    I’m glad that Mazzarra was fired, as an episode finale was awful..

    Why AMC don’t try a new show after TWD that can hold a bit more audience from TWD?

  • nerv

    Cable shows got decent numbers on a Sunday. A lot of them were above 1.0. Very nice indeed. TB and GOT pulled good numbers despite competing against each other and TWD which continues to be a beast.

  • Mickey

    What are the BREAK sections on HBOM?

  • Stefan

    @Nick

    WWE Main Event (03/20 & 03/27), Saturday Morning Slam (03/16 & 03/23 + 03/30 if available) and AM Raw (03/23 & 03/30) please- Thanks in advance!

  • nerv

    NBC would kill to have those numbers 1.5 and above for most of their shows! LOL.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Densino – Ratings don’t matter for HBO; they’re not ad-supported.

    Shame Married to Medicine couldn’t hold on to those premiere ratings.

  • Ultima

    @Mickey
    What are the BREAK sections on HBOM?

    The breaks in between their shows.

    On most networks, a show runs from its start time until the end of the commercial break following it, if any (in other words, until he start of the next show). On premium networks, a show runs from its start time until its end time and the time in between when they run all their promos is rated seperately.

  • Ultima

    The Walking Dead finished the season with a 5.5 A18-49 Live+SD average, the highest for a drama since a 5.7 for Grey’s Anatomy in 2008-09.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Wow, a 6.4 for WD? I don’t think any other series anywhere gets that kind of number. Good for them!

  • RatingsRaceFan

    @Nick,

    Could we get ratings for the following programs:

    Power Rangers Megaforce (Nickelodeon, Saturday, 1:00 p.m.)
    Two new Winx Club episodes, (Nickelodeon, Sunday, 1:00 p.m., 1:30 p.m.)
    Ultimate Spider-man (Disney XD, Sunday, 11:00 a.m.)

    This request is for shows not totally new, but new to Disney Channel:
    Lab Rats (Disney Channel, Saturday, 7:00 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 8:00 p.m.)
    Kickin’ It (Disney Channel, Saturday, 8:30 p.m., 9:00 p.m. one hour episode)

    Thank you so much for the ratings info you provide each week.

  • Petar Ivanov

    Game of thrones is the best show this season. HBO air it ALL over the world so even on pay TV is watched from 100 MILLION VIEWERS + in sunday and Monday.

    The Big Bang Theory also had a 6.4 this season.

  • VeryFiner

    The 11pm showing was vastly lower than the 9pm tells a little that a lot of people did not want an encore..
