    @ Ram510

    “if you put shows on that people actually want, people will watch including the A18-49 group.”

    Believe it or not, there was a time when Network broadcasting was exactly this way & for a long time!

  • Drew

    @Nick

    Could you post the Adult Swim Saturday night ratings for Soul Eater (1:00), ThunderCats (1:30), Sym-Bionic Titan (2:00), Eureka 7 (2:30) and Tenchi Muyo GXP (3:00)? I would greatly appreciate it.

  • Ek

    Is the client list doing good?

  • Gary S.

    I dont watch TWD.
    But , you have to give them their props .

  • torontomatt

    hbo is available in around 29 million U.S households while amc is in over 90+ milliom. if hbo was available in the same number of households as amc was walking dead would not even ave a chance… you just cannot compare the two shows. apples and oranges..

  • Gabriel Roa

    The Client List adjust down :( good lock next week!

  • Pierce

    Without the nudity, Game of Thrones is nothing compared to TWD.

  • Weez

    @ Pierce

    You’re right, but you also forgot a few things (including, but not limited to): Very good writing, great acting all-around, excellent directing, production values that are better than a lot of major motion pictures, an intense and intriguing plot, and… Well, I think you get the point.

    The Walking Dead, like the Transformer film series (and a milion other things) before it, is just another fine example where popularity and ratings (like box-office receipts) only point out that a lot of people watch/ed, not that the product is any good. The show is painfully mediocre, and if the finale for the third season is any indication, it hasn’t quite bottomed out yet.

    @Pierce

    So where are TWDs emmy nominations or peabody awards?

  • anyalock

    TWD which I DVR was surprising in its end and lackluster overall. GOT which I had to watch at 9 because I look forward to it so much more promises for a great 3rd season.

    Having read both TWD comics and GOT books to date I have to say GOT is better story and better executed as a series overall. Kudos to both though for doing so well.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Ek – It’s down from last week, but it’s still Lifetime’s highest rated series.

  • Hugh

    Biggest night on cable ever?

    When was the last time a drama broke 6.4? Prob Greys in 07.

    Chances of WD breaking a 7 next season? 70%

  • East

    Not surprised at TWD. Even the women I know who like romantic comedies love TWD.

  • Melissa

    @Hugh

    When was the last time a drama broke 6.4? Prob Greys in 07.

    It was Grey’s Anatomy, but it wasn’t in 2007. In 2009, Grey’s Anatomy premiered its sixth season to a 6.7. In 2007, Grey’s Anatomy was breaking 10’s and 11’s!
