    @Oliver

    Please tell me you’re trolling! With 1.11 million viewers and a 0.6 in the demo, Veep is HBO’s highest-rated comedy. And if they renewed the flop that is Girls, which got about half that, Veep isn’t going anywhere. Also, were it not for the BREAK, which I’m assuming is just dead air, Veep would definitely score even higher.

    The Client List looks to have lost some of its luster, but its ratings are still acceptable. Sill, I think Lifetime wishes it did better than the ancient Army Wives.

  • Ganon

    @Nick

    Could you post the Adult Swim Saturday numbers for Black Dynamite, Boondocks, Bleach, Naruto, and Soul Eater? Much thanks in advance.

  • charmedcraft

    GO BULLS!

  • Kim Zolciak

    Wow if you totaled the ratings for all of the Real Housewives of Atlanta showings on Sunday night, they would blow every other show off the map. Those ladies deserve raises!

  • Ike

    I’m also hoping to see the numbers for Doctor Who and Orphan Black soon. That was the best episode of Doctor Who in many, many months, and Orphan Black is absolutely on fire, so I hope they did reasonably well.

  • JacobYates

    @Psyche
    I’m going to go with the latter.

  • poweranimals

    Any idea how Lovestruck the Musical did on ABC Family?

  • Andrea

    ABC Family Original Movie (a musical) have probably flopped considering its absence from the list. Its target demo was probably Women 18-34 but being out of the top 100 among Adults 25-54 isn’t an encouraging sign for its performance.

  • 90s90s90s

    Saturday Nick ratings please:

    Monsters vs Aliens – 11:30 a.m.
    Marvin Marvin – 9 p.m.
    Supah Ninjas – 9:30 p.m., 10:00 p.m.

    Thanks!

  • John A

    Any Nurse Jackie ratings yet?

  • RJ

    According to SwimSwam.com, ‘Ryan Lochte’ attracted only 684,000 viewers.

  • The Master

    Go Vikings Go !!!! AMAZING show

  • Layton

    @m&m

    I see True Blood going down. Most of the fans hated the last two seasons. It might do well in the season premier but it will go down from that. Game of Thrones will probably avg more viewers this season than True Blood.

  • Bob

    I am so glad that Army Wives is doing so well. I believe that it will be renewed. I was a little worried that it would not do well with all the new people, but it is growing on me and with Brooke Shields joining I love it. Brooke’s character put that nasty Joan in her place…GOOD!

  • Andrew

    @Nick

    Could you post the Adult Swim Saturday night ratings, particularly for ThunderCats (1:30AM), Sym-Bionic Titan (2:00AM), Eureka 7 (2:30AM) and Tenchi Muyo GXP (3:00AM). I’d greatly appreciate it.

  • Antonio

    Yesss, a new high for GOT! Can’t wait to see the season finale hitting 3.0 on the demo and over 5 million viewers!

    I’d really like to know if VEEP could be in danger with those numbers, I love it and would be sad to see it go.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Ratings for Monsters vs Aliens on Nick please

  • m&m

    @Layton
    @m&m
    I see True Blood going down.

    It sure will Its againg and probably ending next season and yes Gothas higher viwers but it will never reach true blood demo (high 3 ) It doesnt matter yes but every network would kill to have those ratings

  • Jeff

    @m&m True Blood’s latest season (last year) never reached a 3.0 in the demo. It got high 2s and 4.5 to 5 million viewers. If the trend follows (GoT has been steadily increasing while True Blood the opposite), we will see GoT overtake True Blood as HBO’s #1 drama.

  • FlorinDobri

    M&M True blood never had high 3’s. It’s highest rating was 5.44 millions with 3.2 A18-49. And if Got keeps this tendency it has right now I think it’ll come close to that. I think that the season finale will get a 5.2-5.3 millions with 2.8-3.0 A18-49 and I don’t think True Blood will equal that this season.
