    These are great numbers for the 1st round of the NBA playoffs.

    Does anyone know the ratings for the NHL playoffs? They can’t even make the list? Im surprised the Rangers/Caps game didn’t at least get a 0.5.

  • BenA

    #BigTimeRush 5/2/2013 premiere 1.906M total viewers, 0.3 A18-49, 388k A18-49 viewers

  • Ram510

    Men at Work needs to back to a 1.0+, it’s a really good show

  • BluNinja

    Ouch for Big Time Rush. I’m pretty sure Wendell & Vinnie got worse than that. BTR has a much bigger Fanbase and only scored .2m more than the S2 premiere of Supah Ninjas.

  • Kyle R

    Any numbers on Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous (MTV), anybody?

  • Twist Of Fate

    Nick just can’t win with live-action shows this year

  • Tony JJ

    @Twist of Fate

    They’re betting big on Sam & Cat. And I think it’ll premiere great for nickelodeon.

    and wow at Full House @ 6am.

    @EatMorePez

    Do u know any numbers for the games on NBCSN? I cant find any ratings anywhere for NBCSN. Im really interested in the NYR/Wash game. And yea I know the ratings will be small but Im still interested lol

  • Bryan

    Men at Work as the title suggests is a guy skewing show, with all this NBA stuff going on, it’s bound to be affected. Plus, for Max comparing this to Cougar Town, first the TBBT ratings that boosted Cougar Town are lower lately, so Men is bound to be lower. Plus it is a much cheaper show than Cougar Town, so I’m not worried about it.

  • jay

    Hooo

  • Max

    TBBT is a men’s show like MAW,Cougar Town has a strong female cast and the women rule the show. that explains MAWs retention.
    Men (at least a huge part of men who watch television)don’t watch Sex and the city, or desperate housewives.
    Plus, CT has more viewers live+6days than MAW.
    Cougar Town is more appealing to middle age women, MAW is more appealing to Men.
    TBS will maintain both shows ’cause the bring two different audiences
