    Good numbers for Mad Men and Vikings too. Especially since Mad Men was up against Game of Thrones.

  • InAPhotoBoothWearingFlats

    @romo

    “The 1st few shows are to setup the action that really starts to pickup.”

    Then why wasn’t there any action setup? Worthless episodes.

  • romo

    @ina….

    Because it was new character intros (like danys army) which leads to it.

  • roxas

    “Then why wasn’t there any action setup? Worthless episodes”

    because you have a tons of characters to introduce and story lines to set up.

    it would be complete disaster if they just threw action at the viewers instead of taking their time to set up the story and introduce many of the different characters

  • The End

    Game of Thrones will come back every year until it catches up to the authors book, at which point a decision will have to be made as to what direction the show will head in whilst he completes his final book.

    If im not mistaken the author is working on book 6? right, once that is finished he has a final book to do right?

  • Weez

    Very good for Game of Thrones, and also pretty good for Shameless. Mad Men also did well. There was a lot of good television on Sunday, and it seems like they were all able to do well “against” one another. Best finale Shameless has had yet, and these last two episodes were really great. First two episodes of Game of Thrones have been fantastic, and even though I felt the Mad Men premiere dragged on a little bit too long, it was still very good. Looking forward to Veep returning next Sunday.

    Also, did anyone ever get the numbers for Vice on HBO this past Friday? I checked the post for that day, but I didn’t see them in there.

  • Melanie P.

    Great for the RHOA reunion and Married to Medicine did well also.

  • forg

    A cable show rating above 2.0 is considered a smash hit already. The Walking Dead, Duck Dynasty and The Bible changed all that somehow although above 2.0 is still a BIG hit for cable

  • cimmer

    yay River Monsters, .07 for Animal Planet is not bad consider the competition of Game of Thrones and Mad Men. Good going.

  • Nick

    @RyanCanada

    It was an amazing season, you’ll love it when you watch! It’s a shame we have to wait till January for another.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Got episode was pretty good. I was especially surprised to see Dame Diana Rigg in it, as either I had forgotten or never known she was scheduled to be on.

    She used to be my favorite actress back in the ’60′s and ’70′s, the star of the ORIGINAL “The Avengers” – sorry, Joss and Marvel but the Brits preceded you by two years! Of course, she wasn’t the ORIGINAL female star of the show – that was Honor Blackman – but she was probably the most memorable, going on to be a Bond girl – indeed, Bond’s WIFE! – in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service as well as one of my old favorites, The Assassination Bureau. She is set to appear in an episode of Doctor Who in a story called The Crimson Horror alongside daughter Rachael Stirling, Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman. The episode had been specially written for her and her daughter by Mark Gatiss and will be aired in 2013 as part of Series 7, according to Wikipedia.

  • Damiker

    The Client List is boring this season, that explains the slight decline.

  • JeffT

    Vikings is doing well. Yet all the main stream media kvells about is Mad Men. Go figure.

  • JohnnyB

    River Monsters should be up top…smh.

  • shayne

    what were the ratings for opraha’s show with jane fonda?
    thanks
