    @Petar Ivanov

    …no

  • DW

    i love that people show up for the first episode then the last episode of the season then it levels off during the 12-14 other episodes. what do these other people do?.

  • Petar Ivanov

    ps Not counting illegal viewers.(for example in europe you can watch whatever show or film you want for free. I mean via internet/online.)

  • DW

    i subscribe to hbo and im not watching GOT os that 100 million is wet dreaming.

  • svsnt021

    @Nick

    Could you please post, in addition to the top 3 Sat-Sun FOOD AM shows, the numbers for the ‘Rebel Eats’ special (Sat 10PM, FOOD), if possible and available? As always, I thank and appreciate greatly your valuable information!

  • Freddy Arrow

    @VeryFiner

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

    Isn’t it the same episode again? Why would you think that very many people would watch it again? A 1.4 for something that was just on 2 hours ago seems like great ratings to me.

  • Lukes

    Between the monstrous results of the big series, Shameless managed to have a remarkable performance. With its 1.65 millions it didn’t lose audience with respect to the three previous episodes (1.66, 1.67 and 1.61 respectively).

    Everyone was in front of the TV last sunday, apparently.

  • r0ckmypants

    @VeryFiner – Um, no. It just means that a lot of people watched it at 9. And a lot of people watched it at 11 too.

    Sorry, but there’s no way to project your dissatisfaction with the finale onto the ratings; they’re great all around, no matter how you look at it.

  • RJ

    House of Lies Ratings?????

  • Dom

    Wow!!! For SHAMELESS. Holds its own against GOT & WD. Such good news for the most overlooked show on TV that still does great in the ratings!!

  • Nick

    Can anyone find Orphan Black ratings? Thanks.

  • Leoben Conoy

    @i subscribe to hbo and im not watching GOT

    then you are an idiot.

  • Benjamin Elliott

    Can we get the Saturday 3/30 list? Or at least the results for BBC America’s Supernatural Saturday block (Doctor Who, Orphan Black, The Nerdist)?

    Not shocked that BBC America’s last minute and underadvertised Doctor Who special on the Companions (Sunday 7PM ET) didn’t make the top 100, but it would have been nice. The Doctors Revisited specials (Sunday 8PM ET) have yet to crack the top 100. Maybe BBC America should be doing those things on Saturdays, where Who has done well for them.

  • John

    The real winner of the night is Talking Dead.

  • Meanie

    Congrats for TWD6.4 & I love GOT. This Sunday had everyone glued to there TV.

    I must admite when I made a mistake, I remember telling everyone on here when they had said the last few episode was boring and I was saying the was building up for a huge finale. Well I lied that was not a good episode for a finale but it was a okay episode.

  • Densino

    REVOLUTION got a 2.3 in the 18-49 demo last night

  • Sonya

    Killer numbers even if the finale wasn’t spectacular. I give it a B. I’m not sorry to see Mazarra go especially after reading some articles about how he is the one responsible for Andrea’s character devolution. He wrote this episode and it felt choppy in places. New showrunner Scott Gimple who has written some of my favorite episodes actually rewrote a couple of scenes which gave a certain someone better closure.

    For those who wonder why AMC doesn’t launch another show after TWD instead of The Talking Dead, I think AMC has wisely learned from ABC’s misstep’s with show’s following LOST. A huge number of fans watching a show like TWD aren’t interested in watching another show, they want to discuss and disect TWD. AMC wisely hangs onto a large number of fans with The Talking Dead. Otherwise they would lose them to the Internet.

  • MichaelChickless

    TWD ratings are undead!

  • UKTVFan

    Since there are channels putting new shows on Saturdays, I second the vote for adding a Saturday Cable Ratings post to the site!

    Nick, may I put in a standing request for BBC America’s Supernatural Saturday ratings (8pm – Doctor Who, 9pm – Orphan Black, 10pm – The Nerdist)? As always, thanks for providing curious viewers with these Saturday numbers.

  • Ram510

    Sunday at 9 was busy a 6.4, 3.0, 2.4. And then you got whatever was on broadcast, wow. Looks like Sunday is cables night to shine, really busy. And surprisingly all those shows at 9 were up compared to their respective previous episode and didn’t cancel each other out.

    This proves to the broadcast networks if you put shows on that people actually want, people will watch including the A18-49 group.
