    If there is any question to the popularity of Kim from Atlanta Housewives – just look at those impressive numbers! WOW!

  • moonartzi

    I can’t believe the borgias or nurse Jackie did not make 500,000 viewers that’s not very good at all. Showtimes weakest schedule is on during spring. @Weez You think showtime cancels both shows? Showtime usually says when it’s the last season of a show but I don’t blame showtime for canceling them with ratings this bad.

  • Solelle

    Yay for GoT!

  • romo

    Whats the M mean in HBOM ?

  • Diego

    New series high for GoT! Great!

  • shayne

  • Bravo

    RHOA reunion numbers have been great! And just think some thought the show would suffer after Wig left. Fools! LOL

  • kul65

    Another ratings high for Game of Thrones! If this keeps up, maybe the budget will increase even more for season 4. :D

  • svsnt021

    @Nick
    You were truly INMENSELY MISSED this past weeks!!! Would you please post numbers for the top 3 Sat & Sun FOOD AM shows and, if possible, the numbers for the 4/7 airing of Sandwich King? Thanks greatly in advance!!!

  • Bob

    Army Wives a 0.8 is not terrible. I am getting used to the new people and can’t wait to see Brook Shields give it to Joan next week! Joan thinks she is all that….well Brooke is going to change that!!!!

  • Cyndi

    Not much happening on Game of Thrones, though. I’ve found these first episodes of the season to be total duds. You could skip all three so far and not miss hardly anything.

  • Martin

    Very decent for Nurse Jackie. Come on Season 6!!.

  • JacobYates

    @maplab98
    Vikings has already been renewed for Season 2, so it’s in no danger. Even if it was, let’s look at the facts.

    Of course it declined from its premiere. That’s completely normal for any show. Also, now it doesn’t have the Bible as a lead-in, so a slight drop from where it was should have been expected.

    However, anything above 1.0 (and maybe a bit lower) is lock on most cable networks so I assume History would adhere to the same rule of thumb.

    Plus, the fact that it retained almost all of its ratings from 2 weeks ago, when it had the Bible as a lead-in, shows that it has a loyal fan-base and doesn’t need a prop-up.

    I’m not trying to insult you FYI, just trying to show you that there’s nothing to worry about. I love the series myself. GO VIKINGS!

  • Ganon

    @Nick

    If possible, could you post the Adult Swim Saturday numbers for Black Dynamite, Boondocks, Bleach, Naruto, and Soul Eater? Thanks in advance.

  • peter

    That is actually really good news for Nurse Jackie. Better ratings than any episode of last season (the season 4 high was 650,000 viewers). It is also the second highest rated episode since 2010 (season 2).

    As for The Borgias, it is on par with last season’s average. I think the show will be renewed because the creators have always said they had a 4 seasons plan (like The Tudors) and the show is selling well overseas. So i don’t see Showtime denying them one final season.

  • karin

    Veep is bad for HBO,
    Showtime needs to cancel The Borgias,asap?

  • Reache

    Thanks @Nick!
