    No Veep as well. But Girls also rarely appears here and usually gets 0.4 so maybe they’re in that range but still yikes

  • Jimi

    Oh.. now I get it..

  • forg

    Oh wait Veep got 0.6, missed it earlier

  • The Master

    Vikings is AMAZING show.

  • samurai99

    @Peter

    No, GoT was scoring high 3′s last year. Not as bad as you think.

  • Jimi

    @Peter

    All right, thanks!
    Is retention really relevant though? I imagine GoT and Veep are two shows that don’t necessarily share an audience!

  • r0ckmypants

    @Jimi – I would say it’s good. At the very least, it’s well above Girls, which has been renewed.

    Bravo Sunday is doing incredibly. They should have debuted Married to Medicine earlier; I don’t think they’ve ever had two shows pulling in those kind of numbers back-to-back. Granted, Married to Medicine wouldn’t be as high if RHOA wasn’t up as well, but a win’s a win.

  • Jarrod

    Okay, so Nurse Jackie isn’t in the 100 (as noted in red). By that, I am assuming it’s bad, so how does this effect the show and it’s chances at renewal for a sixth season?

  • LovingLostGirl

    @ Dean

    Shameless season finale was last week…that may be why there are no Showtime shows in the top 100.

  • peter

    @Samurai99: What? No Game of Thrones never hit 3′s in the demo. Go back to last years articles and see that i am correct. It averaged between 1.6 and 1.9

  • Mon

    I don’t think HBO cares about Veep’s retention of Game of Thrones ratings. So I think Veep is doing well.

  • eridapo

    I’m happy for Vikings. This show is getting better each week.

  • Colin

    Hung had the same ratings like Veep after a huge lead-in, so i think Veep will be cancelled.

  • Weez

    Veep will definitely be renewed. The Borgias is done for, as is Nurse Jackie (most likely). Great for GoT. I don’t think this is the last time the show will hit a series high this season, even discounting the finale (which hit a series high for both of the first two seasons).

  • UKTVFan

    Why no Saturday cable ratings? There are enough new shows airing on Saturday (like Doctor Who and Orphan Black, Food Network shows, AMC is moving Hell on Wheels to Saturday night, etc.) to warrant a Saturday Cable Ratings post.

  • Alyssa

    Where are the Showtime programs? Damn. I need another season of The Borgias.

  • samurai99

    @Peter

    I was talking about total viewers, the thing HBO would care more about. You might be right about demo.

    @Weez

    Eh, Nurse Jackie’s never had high ratings. It can keep going. No idea what’s going to happen with the Borgias though.

  • Ram510

    I hope Veep can grow this season. I thought it would do a little better but still solid

  • Weez

    @ samurai99

    I only say so, with regards to Nurse Jackie, as they’ve lost a fan favorite character/actress in the season premiere, and there is a new show runner this year. With all that, and the diminishing returns as it concerns both ratings and critical reception… I think it’s time to move on. Showtime has a tendency to let their shows go on too long, as it is.

  • Bill

    Great for Vikings and GoT. Any info on Orphan Black from Sat? Love that show
