  • VeryFiner

    Doesn’t Married to Jonas and Ryan Lochte show come on sunday? They did that bad?

  • Ram510

    Nice that Mad Men increased! Sundays episodes was great! I really enjoyed the MLK episodes as well. Great start to this season

  • romo

    Rumour is Break will be made into a feature film for summer 2015.

    I am so there.

  • Pooty

    Nene’s interview did better than Kim Zolciak’s “Don’t Be Tardy”. That is a sign Nene has more drawing power.

  • 90s

    Could we get the following:

    SatAM:
    9:30 a.m. – The Fairly Oddparents
    11:00 a.m. – TMNT – rerun
    11:30 a.m. – Monsters vs Aliens

    SatPM
    9:00 p.m. – Big Time Rush – rerun
    9:30 p.m. – Wendell and Vinnie – rerun

    Thanks!

  • Juan

    Nick, can you provide total viewers & 18-49 for Vortexx, BBCA, & adultswim? I’m dying to find out how they did against Iron Man 3’s opening.

    Does any one know what True Blood’s peak 18-49 was? That’s the most important # by far for HBO in terms of retention of subcribers, growth of subscribers, & future syndication of these shows.

    @Nick
    Thanks so very kindly, Nick!!! Appreciate your valuable info a lot!!!

  • Mickie

    Oprah’s Next Chapter interview with Jason aired at 730p ET/PT. Thank you.

  • UKTVFan

    As always, thanks so much for the additional Saturday ratings information, Nick!

  • 90s

    Thanks Nick! You’re awesome

  • sarah nz

    Game of Thrones !!!
    That is all :)

  • Recollected

    Welcome to Myrtle Manor has been damn good for TLC. Can’t wait for Season 2. Also glad to see The Kandi Factory make the list for the second time lol.

  • Jake

    Nick,

    Any info on Dog and Beth on Sunday? Thanks!

    J

  • DANIEL

    Wow, BREAK’s numbers will break GOT’s if GOT slips anytime soon.
    Doesn’t look like that will happen though.

  • juke

    what is BREAK? I have tried to look it up but have found nothing, it comes on after Game of Thrones?

  • kul65

    Game of Thrones just keeps on climbing (pun intended)! Completely amazing and brings hope for even more ambitiously budget blasting episodes. :D

  • Kaylie

    They should give Disney XD its own slot on 1 night on Disney Channel. They should turn Disney XD into Disney Replay; a network with all their old shows. (Lizzie McGuire, Thats So Raven, Even Stevens, Kim Possible etc.)

  • Juan

    Thanks much Nick for the Sat info!

    If Vikings cost Hist $40m did GoT cost 2 or 3X times that? Can HBO afford to raise prices without losing more subs? If not does that mean the cheaper series like Veep will be cut to afford the big budget S/FX extravaganza shows? They might be re-thinking their movie usage once again.

  • Shiro

    @ClamCam
    BREAK is the best show on TV!!

    totally agreed! this week episode is the best episode so far. lol
