    Will Awkward see a 4th season?!

  • Charlie

    what’s happening to awkward? :(

  • Michael

    Wow, Awkward hasn’t made this list since the season premiere.

  • Jared

    Awkward is getting lost on Tuesday nights this season plus it never had to go against any real competition. I expect it will start to pick up over the next couple weeks and into the Summer. Last nights episode might have been the funniest yet. Such a great series.

  • Recollected

    Glad to see Don’t Be Tardy rising again. The 10PM time slot switch was a good idea!

  • Jonathan

    Great decision to move Don’t Be Tardy to 10! Almost up to a million again after sinking to 700,000 last week.

  • Ryann

    Seriously, what the heck has happened to Awkward. one of the best shows of TV, Is it the new time and night that doing it? After a really strong premiere I thought the numbers would be high? Awkward. has been on a roll week to week

  • Rando

    Is it possible that MTV is not reporting the numbers in time for Awkward to make the list? I read one of the comments last week that said it received a 0.6 18-49 which should have clearly put it on the list published on this site. I find it hard to believe that it’s getting below a 0.3.

  • kbmv

    Anyone have the NHL playoff game numbers?

    Strong for the Thunder/Grizzlies getting a 2.1. Memphis and OKC are the smallest tv markets in the league so that’s great for the NBA.

  • jT

    “Will Awkward see a 4th season?!” Hell yeah it will.

    This is only the 4th episode of a 20 episode season.

  • Obveeus

    As noted above, this list is culled from a Top100 list of adult 25-54 viewing. As such, the 18-24 crowd that is watching Awkward doesn’t count in those ratings…which is why Awkward doesn’t show up on this list of Top 18-49 cable shows even though its ratings are higher than many of the shows that do make the list.

  • John

    A 0.6 is still pretty awful especially for MTV.

  • alex

    Even thought they moved tardy for the party again.It’s still pathetic.Time to cancel that and kandi factory now.

  • DW

    i still cant believe that MTV did not have one single show in the top 100 all day?.

  • davie

    I think somethings up with MTV/Awkward not being listed. Ever since that.second episode was listed as a repeat on the guide and didnt end up on the top 100 list, it hasnt made the list since.

  • Cheryblosen

    Kesha my crazy beautiful life numbers please!

  • silvit

    @DW

    That is because this list take into consideration the 25-54. Not exactly the MTV audience.

  • ryan

    Who gets the last laugh? Cougar Town does! :D

  • Walter

    The Futon Critic had Awkward at a 0.6 for April 23 and April 30. Haven’t seen the ratings for this week yet.

  • Nick

    Are the numbers “Inside Amy Schumer” is getting, good for Comedy Central? I think Tosh.o pretty much out performs every show on that network, so a 0.8 for IAS is pretty decent, right?
