  • Shaun

    Game of Thrones is unstoppable. 6m by the end of this season

  • Colin

    What the heck is the show BREAK and why is it on for like 5 mins?

  • svsnt021

    @Nick
    Would you post #s for the top 3 Sat/Sun FOOD AM shows? As always, I’ll appreciate your valuable info tremendously! Thanks in advance!!!

  • Jeff (Canada)

    I don’t know how I feel about Break this season. I think it REALLY jumped the shark with its last episode. But hey if you’re 2nd highest rated show of the night I guess you’re doing something right.

  • forg

    Wow Game of Thrones1

  • Binaldi

    Dog with a Blog is a morning show not Sunday evenings

  • Stefan

    @Nick

    WWE Main Event, Saturday Morning Slam and AM Raw please- Thanks in advance!

  • Trent

    Mad Men use to be such a great shown and now it has become unwatchable. So many bland story lines for people that nobody cares for (Betty, Don’s kids, Ginsberg, etc.). They have totally go away from what made this show great.

  • BD

    Game of Thrones is the best show on TV, peroid..they have done such a great job of bringing the books to life and the characters are cast perfectly. This season is deifnitely capturing the essence of the war that is taking over the entire country and its impact on everyone involved. Such an engaging show.

  • Rich

    I hear that NBC is developing its own version of “Break” for next year.

  • John A

    Yay The Client List beat Mad Men.

  • Colin

    Rectify?

  • Sean

    YAY For THE CLIENT LIST!!!!

  • John A

    GOT is doing great. Rising each week. Could it hit a 3.0 next week?

  • UKTVFan

    Nick, can you post the Saturday night numbers for Doctor Who and Orphan Black? As always, thank you so much for providing us with these extra ratings.

  • frodo

    Game of Thrones is a beast and it deserves all the success!

  • frodo

    Vikings has really held its own this year. Its a great success story for the History channel.

  • samurai99

    Game of Thrones is now, officially, the #1 show on HBO and all of premium cable.

    Nice to see Veep holding up as well. Now that Vikings is over I can finally get caught up on that show.

  • Rabbit

    Yes Nick, can you post the ratings for Orphan Black from Saturday and Rectify(Sunday at 11 on AMC)?

  • sam

    I’m sure Break is certain to be renewed with those numbers. HBO is probably very happy.
