    I don’t think any HBO comedy has ever had a good rating out of an hour drama. Entourage only really got a 1 in the demo in its much later years after True Blood. I don’t think there is any worry for Veep. But I could be wrong.

  • UKTVFan

    Thanks Nick for the Saturday ratings. Do you have the numbers for episode 2 of Orphan Black (from Sat. 4/6)? I’m curious to see the drop from episode 1 to 2 to 3.

  • Dana

    The Borgias has a small but faithful base. Showtime might want to keep them happy and renew. It would swing either way.

  • moonartzi

    @Cyndi I agree, game of thrones has not been great so far just average. Hopefully it gets better soon.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    UKTVFan: I’ve been watching Orphan Black as well. This is an excellent new BBC America series.

    For those who don’t know, the show starts off similar to the CW’s Ringer – but done considerably better. An orphan girl who has a daughter, a gay prostitute foster brother, and an abusive drug-dealing boy friend steals the boyfriend’s coke in order to buy her way out for herself, her daughter and her foster brother. In the process, she sees a woman kill herself in the subway by walking in front of a train. The woman’s face looks exactly like hers. She grabs the woman’s left-behind purse, goes to the woman’s home, learns she was a cop with a recently opened $75,000 bank account. Intending to clean out the account by impersonating the woman and making it look like the orphan is dead, she finds a safe deposit box with birth certificates and IDs for several other women in various countries – all with her face.

    One of these women turns up in the back of her car and catches a bullet in the forehead from a sniper, the orphan girl barely escaping with her life. Things gets complicated from there. :-)

    The show’s star, Tatiana Maslany, handles playing at least five different roles with some aplomb, given they’re all very different people, unlike Sarah Michelle Gellar in Ringer. The pace of the show is fast, the writing and dialog are good and believable. This is a pretty good new show.

    As Joe Bob Briggs used to say, check it out.

    @ Nick

    Do you have the total viewers for Nanoboy, Sonic X, Transformers Prime, DBZ Kai, and Justice League Unlimited (3/16 + 4/6) from the CW on Saturday? Thanks in advance!

  • UKTVFan

    Richard, I’m thoroughly enjoying Orphan Black, and Tatiana Maslany is doing a wonderful job playing all the clones.

    I’m hopeful that while the 9pm ratings from episode 1 to 3 decreased (685,000 to 350,000), it will level off above 300,000, which would probably give it a decent chance for renewal.

    One thing in Orphan Black’s favor is that it looks like it is getting more 18-49 demo viewers than other 9pm Saturday shows aside from Doctor Who (like Ripper Street). I’m hopeful that the multiple airings on Saturday and Thursday nights are generating enough revenue to make the show profitable.

  • FlorinDobri

    Contrary to what most of you ( at least those posting here) think, I’ve really enjoyed this season of GoT. It’s a little bit slow, but I truly like that. I agree that there may be too many characters, but I like most of them and find them interesting. And I really hope it’ll hit 5 millions sooner than later.

  • samurai99

    Dang, Borgias was beat by Nurse Jackie? That’s sad.

    I too am enjoying GoT this season. And it only gets better here on out.

  • Katie

    @Dean- There are no Showtime shows in the top 100 ratings for Sunday because all 3 of their shows that were airing on Sundays finished for the season a week or two ago. I don’t believe any new seasons of any of the shows have started yet.

  • samurai99

    @katie

    The Borgias and Nurse Jackie both premiered Sunday.

  • moonartzi

    I do not see why Nurse Jackie and the borgias did not make the list if there ratings were 0.770 and 0.582?

  • Joe

    @Cyndi

    FALSE. Every scene means something down the road. It’s a serial, not a procedural.

  • Kangaroo Dan

    @ Nick, do you have ratings for Yu-gi-Oh! and Yu-gi-oh! Zexal on Saturday on the CW?

    As always, thanks very, very kindly for your valuable info!!! Appreciate it much!!!

  • i luv nickelodeon

    @Nick
    can we get FOP (fairly odd parents) ratings from sunday? 7:00pm on nickelodeo

  • emily

    I am not surpised that Veep does not do well it is a show that has very talky funny dialog that you have to pay attention too. When i watch something like Game of Thrones my attention wanders when some boring character like Robb is on and of course the fact that i have read all the books adds to this. It sucks that not much new people have been watching Mad Men it is one of my favorite shows.
