  • I Want

    I want my Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous ratings info RIGHT NOW!

  • DM

    Well The Show With Vinny is certainly a disappointment.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Ratings for BTR and Wendell & Vinnie please

  • mikee

    What was Big Time Rush’s numbers on Nick? It was season premiere.

  • rob60990

    No Anger Management on the list again.

    Vinny’s MTV show bombed. People are over Jersey Shore. Time to move on MTV.

    None of TBBT reruns cracked a 1? Wow. At least Men at Work had decent retention, better than Cougar Town ever had. :D

  • John A

    Nice to see Castle do well. And Charmed still doing well 7 years after its end.

  • msupdate

    I found both The Show With Vinny and Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous to be unbelievably boring on MTV last night.

  • MichaelChickless

    So that’s where the POI viewers went.

  • Dillan

    The Show With Vinny was never going to do well, I don’t know why MTV decided to go forward with it. When are they going to realise that Snooki and Jwoww are the only 2 people that are going to have success outside of Jersey Shore?

  • Mr Mikey

    @Dillan

    Yeah but even Snooki and JWOWW’s ratings are just mediocre. MTV needs to get rid of all these Jersey Shore spinoffs.

  • ratingsbuff

    did big time rush premiere ratings come out?

  • DW

    wow full house @ 6 AM is a beast.

  • Kyle R

    I don’t understand how these ratings work. There’s no way Zach Stone premiered lower than the stuff on this list, but it’s still not on the list?

  • Nathan

    If anyone has the following info for:

    Big Time Rush (NICK) 8:00 PM
    Wendell & Vinnie (NICK) 8:30 PM

    Thanks very very much in advance!

  • Michael

    Why end Jersey Shore, if practically every member of the cast has a spinoff?

  • Tyson

    Full House at 6 a.m gets a 0.6 and more than 1.1 million viewers. If your favorite cable show can’t beat those numbers, I don’t know what to tell you.

  • Dillan

    @Mr Mikey

    Mediocre is still a success IMO. It still regularly got a 1.0 demo weekly during its second season.

  • diet sunkist

    Very solid numbers for the Warriors/Nuggets game. Mid-size markets, no superstars, and still was well over 4 million viewers. Definitely would’ve liked to see a Game 7 in that series.

  • kbmv

    Once again small market teams Warriors vs Nuggets(2.0) beat Brooklyn Nets vs Chicago Bulls(1.7). This is great news for the NBA knowing they can do well no matter the teams.

  • Max

    Man At Work is now doing worse than Cougar Town, and it’s not even competing with top shows at 10pm.
