    interesting that Defiance is still doing well but steadily decreasing despite the heavy promotion and the fact that the series just started. WH on the other hand, was given no promo yet still pulling in 1+ ratings week after week and top twitter trending. in terms of return of investments, i would think that WH is so far a better money deal for Syfy

  • JacobYates

    @snoot
    He only comes out when it benefits him to come out. If Bates Motel had pulled 1.3 or 1.4, then he wouldn’t be here. He hates the Neighbors and he didn’t come to comment on it until there was a supposed set back in the renewal decision.

    You hear that rob60990? You hate shows for no good reason and that’s fine, but actively wish for them to go off the air just so you can be happy is just really low down.

  • JacobYates

    wishing not wish

  • Observer

    I seem to remember Craig Engler of Syfy back in the SGU days saying SGU needed at least 2 million viewers to keep it on the air. I can’t recall if he was talking about the Live + SD or Live +7 numbers when he was discussing it. SGU was expensive to produce but I’m thinking Defiance might be more so. I wonder what other deals there are in place to keep Defiance on the air if the ratings continue their slow and steady decline. My feeling is they will level out at around 1.4 – 1.6 million and .5 – .6 in the demo. Does Syfy go after the slightly older demo that goes up to age 54?

  • EatMorePez

    Point of reference: the season low for Bates Motel is 1.0. Last year the season highs for A&E’s other scripted originals, Longmire and The Glades, was 0.9.

  • The End

    @Observer

    It was actually more than 2 million live viewers. Stargate Universe had an insane budget, higher than the present Walking Dead seasons even. MGM was funding it though, so it wasn’t a Universal Cable Productions show.

    A 0.6 18-49 wouldn’t of got SGU a third season. Though it may of got a third if the second rated better and MGM dropped the asking price by a LOT.

    You only have to look at the fact they built a multi story Destiny set over at Bridge Studios. Stupid amounts of money being spent on that thing, adding to it and stuff lol

    “Do cable shows adjust up or adjust down and we just never hear about it?”

    No, these are the finals for cable.

  • rob60990

    “He hates the Neighbors and he didn’t come to comment on it until there was a supposed set back in the renewal decision”

    I only hate The Neighbors because it sunk ABC’s comedy block but I can care less that ABC renewed it and threw it to Fridays. Its ratings did not warrant a 2nd season.

  • mathew

    secret life numbers please!

  • Mark3

    Bates is once again the number 1 scripted cable show on mon:):)

    Steady at a .4. Two episodes left?

  • Torrid

    “My Directv receiver says on the “what people are watching section”, that the NHL last night was neck and neck with the NBA. It says this all the time and is never reflected in the ratings. I don’t get it.”

    This may be so in your little podunk Andrew….. but there’s a great big America out there and they usually are not too interested in the NHL…sorry:)

  • Travis

    Keep sinking WWE Monday Night Raw. The 8:00 hour was a dance-off between Fandango and Chris Jericho.

  • outlawz

    @Mark3 wwe is script its not real

  • The End

    @outlawz

    Still amazes me that some people think WWE is actually real. Ignoring that the outcome of matches is decided long before the wrestlers even enter the building.

  • Son of The Undertaker

    Who cares, professional wrestling is entertaining, and you couldn’t do half of the stuff that they do.

  • Hola12

    Bates Motel went down in ratings but not worried a bit. It’s still one of the top Monday shows on cable!

  • A.C.

    I think it is pretty clear the drop in BATES MOTEL was related to the Playoff games on TNT..I’d bet if there hadn’t been playoffs it would have stayed at a 1.3. I wouldn’t see this drop as the start of a trend.

  • Chris

    Grow up, Rob60990! You think you’re the new Max, but you’re not.

  • Maja

    My name is Earl?? Nice to know I am not the only one that watches it time to time in the morning.

    Bates Motel went down….. Week before finale? Weird
