    @Nick
    Thanks ever so kindly, Nick!!! Appreciate it a lot!!!

  • Craig

    Can anyone give me the numbers for E! on Sunday night (Married to Jonas, What Would Ryan Lochte Do)?

  • dj shane tony shayne

    thanks nick for the OWN Numbers!!

  • JeffT

    Mad Men has a great PR machine. It gets beaten by Vikings, Army Wives and The Client List yet it gets all the press groupies.

  • ILoveCookies

    How come when Game of Thrones or any other HBO show does well in the ratings, it doesn’t get mentioned. Yet whenever Homeland, Dexter or Madmen reach a new high, there are several articles written about it and everybody makes a big deal for these shows. I think there is a double standard here when it comes to HBO shows. Sites like this should be more open and favorable to more shows.

  • John A

    Those Nurse Jackie ratings are poor.

  • John

    The fantastic Break should be aired in place of Veep. Pathetic ratings for Veep!

  • Nick

    Married To Jonas (E!)
    -10:30 PM: 0.611 million viewers, 0.32 A18-49

  • Steve

    It’s really too bad that a show like “Orphan Black” is only getting 325K viewers. It’s easily one of the best series on all of television right now.

  • Barbarossa

    @IloveCookies

    Simply because ratings are pretty much meaningless to HBO, so they don’t make as big a deal about it. They’re the only channel that total viewers matter, but they occasionally will make a commercial or announcement. Surprised I haven’t seen it for GoT

  • Juan

    I don’t know why you would think that. What matters most to HBO is retention of subscribers, growth of subscribers, & potential syndication value of the shows. What age groups then do you think matter the most? 18-49, 25-54, & 35-64. Syndication & off-network doesn’t happen often for them (I’m only aware of Sopranos & Entourage), so the local market ratings matter a lot more to them then the national ratings. The overnight & SD ratings hold no importance for them, but the 7D do. What is most important are the sweeps ratings that cover all 204 Nielsen markets. They use that to better tailor their marketing (including special offers) & better understand what their su’s want most. It’s proven very difficult for any premium channel to break the low 30m su range which is why some analysts think that’s the ceiling for Netflix as well. I disagree. I compare Netflix’s price & offering more to Encore which has a ceiling of high 40m su’s.

  • Christian

    @Jaun

    Sex And The City is also in syndication it’s on E!

  • Tony

    GO The Client List and Game of Thrones, to the end of the season GOT will make 6m, I even expect more than that. Both series are really GREAT. I love them.
