    Wow. The MTV Movie Awards did pretty damn well.

  • Jeff (Canada)

    Go Game of Thrones! We should really give them a hand, they deserve it.

  • Markitos

    Nurse Jackie???

  • DW

    way to go break. come on HBO renew break already. :)

  • Jo

    Mad Men just isn’t as good this year, disappointed.

  • Jarrod

    Yes, where is Nurse Jackie?

  • Seth

    Agreed @DW, Break is currently can’t miss TV. Congrats to the producers of Break and all the executives at HBO for finding another hit.

  • BD

    Game of Thrones just keeps getting better

  • JacobYates

    Vikings still strong without the Bible as a lead-in.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    “Yes, where is Nurse Jackie?”

    Apparently not in the day’s top 100 for adults 25-54, as noted, in red.

    “Agreed @DW, Break is currently can’t miss TV. Congrats to the producers of Break and all the executives at HBO for finding another hit.”

    Break was renewed for season 2 before season 1 premiered.

  • were123

    Wow, GoT is really consistent! I’m glad, I hope it hits 3s eventually! (maybe the season finale?)

  • Bud the Couch Spud

    Where’s Dog the Bounty Hunter’s new show?

  • Barbarossa

    @were123

    don’t know if it’ll hit 3s but if it doesn’t hit over 5 Million(for one viewing) by the end of the season I’ll be shocked. and as everyone knows (well not Colin) HBO only cares about viewers/subscribers, not ratings, though they’re nice

  • Dean

    Unless I’m reading it wrong there are no Showtime programmes in the top 100?

  • Jimi

    Is that good or bad for Veep?

  • peter

    Wow no Borgias? no Nurse Jackie?

  • Jimi

    What the hell is Break? I can’t find any info on it! :O

  • samurai99

    Heck yeah, new record for Game of Thrones! Dropping the repeat at 10 helped out!

    Vikings had it’s best episode yet last night. Still waiting for them to find some competent villains though.

    Mad Men falling a little harder than last year. It’s peaked, but it’s a good peak.

    Good to see Veep holding steady from last year’s finale.

    Question: Did the Borgias air at 9 or 10 pm last year? I thought lack of Thrones as competition would help it.

  • peter

    @Jimi

    Veep is pulling the same numbers than last season (with GoT as lead in). Except that GoT grew quite a bit from last season (2.4 vs 1.6-1.8). So Veep’s retention has gotten much worse.
