  • Jeff (Canada)

    2.3% of 18-49 year olds watched it on HBO, but I wonder how many people downloaded it the next morning? If they took that into account I bet the rating would be 5 times that!

  • D’Arcy

    GoT smashed The Walking Dead in downloaded torrents, so of course it would have huge ratings if those downloads counted.

  • Sel

    Can’t believe that such a good show like Shameless gets less attention than the kardashians and the real housewives. My mind just cannot render this!

  • The Master

    Go Vikings !!! AMAZING Show

  • AJ

    Woo!!! Austin & Ally still did pretty well! :)

  • peter

    Pretty good for the first episode of Vikings without The Bible as its lead-in. It lost more than 1 million viewers but dropped only one tenth in A18-49.

    I wonder where did all those 23 million viewers watching The Walking Dead and The Bible go.

  • RyanCanada

    Great Numbers for RHOA and GOT

  • RyanCanada

    im so behind on shameless, have all season on my DVR

  • Jonathan

    RHOA will jump next week when Kim returns for the reunion!!

  • JacobYates

    Turns out Vikings doesn’t need the Bible to prop it up. Fell in viewers, but steady in the demo.

  • Matt

    Looks like the boost Vikings got from The Bible was all in older viewers.

  • John A

    Pity client list cant rise back to a safe 1.0 demo.

  • samurai99

    Wow, wasn’t expecting Vikings to beat Mad Men. Sad that the writing for Vikings seems to be getting worse.

    Glad to see GoT winning the night, as it should. Best show on Tv.

  • RJ

    I was expecting a collapse for Vikings.

  • Barbarossa

    Hm. Slight dip for GoT, which is surprising

  • Adrian Havill

    Did you notice the commercials on MAD MEN, Samurai99? Audi and Lincoln cars, Johnny Walker scotch, etc. Half of the Mad Men audience have six-figure incomes. It’s one of the efficient vehicles on cable to reach the one-percent crowd. I doubt if AMC cares who has the higher 18-49 audience. They have a specialized, wealthy audience and as long as they get two or three million viewers they’re golden. Not going for the STORAGE WARS crowd and comparing MM with The Vikings is like comparing The New York Post with The New York Times.

  • Colin

    LOL, even without TWD and The bible Game of Flops is falling.^^ Well deserved, overrated show.

  • davie

    Shameless up for the finale, thats good. Excellent show. I gotta catch up on House of Lies and Californication

  • samurai99

    @Adrian Havill

    Calm down man. You may notice I didn’t even say I think Mad Men is better than Vikings.

    @Colin

    Dream on, troll.

  • JacobYates

    @Colin
    Ratings don’t even matter to HBO since it’s premium cable. Plus, Game of Thrones beats broadcast networks in the demo, and is one of the highest rated cable shows this season. Yep, that’s definitely a flop.
