  • Greg

    Men at Work doing worse than Cougar Town. So we know now that they made a right call in renewing it, sydication aside, and that the show might even receive a sixth season, if it keeps doing this well.

  • Luke

    Project Runway fell hard this week….

  • Charmed

    Yay Charmed got 0.4 :)

  • xwiseguyx

    Ouch for Tabitha!

  • Duane Mogstra

    @Greg

    I agree that TBS should have renewed Cougar Town. Great show. But it isn’t nearly as cheap to produce as Men at Work. It’s a multicam show with lesser known actors

  • Ram510

    Tough call me for me last night between Men at Work and Archer (which I’m surprised both aren’t higher this week) so I chose Scandal. Don’t know what I’ll do next week though cause I love both shows.

    I think TBS should give Men at Work and Cougar Town a summer run since that’s when people really watch cable

  • Binaldi

    Is 900000 good for Braxton family values

  • r0ckmypants

    Sad that Tabatha is down from last year. That episode last night was wonderful.

    @Luke – Project Runway is only down a tenth.

  • James

    Forgot to DVR Men at Work.

  • VH1

    @Binaldi yeah that good for WE-TV ratings. Braxton family values is the highest rated show on that channel. All three season had the same ratings number

  • silvit

    @Greg
    It has to be said that the 9:30 TBBT only got 1.1 vs 1.6. That’s quite a difference.

  • Rebecca

    It was fun to hear three Bob’s Burgers voices on Archer (Bob, Gene and Louise). Only one more Archer left for the season – looks like it’s part two of last night’s episode.

  • Greg

    @Duane and silvit

    Yes, yes, you’re absolutely right.

  • Melissa

    Interesting that Friends reruns can still pull 0.7′s on Nick at Nite.

  • forg

    Mickey Mouse gets 0.5, beats some CW shows. Crazy

  • sam

    Men at work was pulling 1s last season and premiered to a 1.5 if my memory is correct. Not a bad turn out last night. I expect it to rise in rhe following weeks.

  • Bryan

    Oh please Greg, Cougar Town was barely doing that well. Plus, it is a very expensive show to produce compared to Men at Work. Also, considering Cougar Town was previously on network, it’s ratings should be better, and not relying on TBBT.

  • juan

    Wow, good day for TNT, Charmed, Supernatural, Castle, and Bones doing great numbers in syndication. I love 3 of those (haven’t seen Bones).

  • Scrootie

    WOW, Anger Management is such a flop. It’s totally dead in the water.

  • Bully Ray

    Anger Management has stayed over a million viewers the last few episodes pretty good for them after the rocky start this season.

    After seeing Friends repeat ratings and Go On’s ratings from Thursday I think Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry really need to just do a Friends spin-off on NBC. Drop Cougar Town.

    Impact Wrestling back up! YEAH! Bellator’s been real consistent too ending its first season on SPIKE.
