    Interesting that The Cleveland Show repeat got the same rating as the unannounced 6 o’clock one on Fox yesterday

  • POIFanatic

    @Petar @Drew:
    I haven’t read the third book ‘Storm of Swords’ yet, just now finishing up ‘Clash of Kings’, but WHAT IN THE FREAKING HELL are you talking about?!! Season 3 has been more than stellar! I love the political intrigue, the evolving characters, the acting, the cinematography, the writing and everything! Hell dragons are the last thing I’m excited about! That’s how great this season has been.

  • DW

    i love how GOT goes down a little bit and people are dumping on it because its slow. it’s been slow , its a slow show.

  • shane

    hello Nick,

    Could you please post the ratings for THE KANDI FACTORY on BRAVO, and Oprah’s LIFECLASS.

    thank you very much.

    almost forgot
    ILYANLA’S SHOW
    RAISING WHITLEY
    and LIFE WITH LA TOYA thanks!!!!

  • Staka

    Wtf is Break??? (Commercial Ads)???

  • VyseN1

    Since Sunday was Mother’s Day, it is to be expected that ratings would be down a it.

  • AJ

    NOOO… Good Luck Charlie, NO.

  • Jimi

    It’s interesting how GoT was way down, yet Veep was up!
    Any good explanation for this?

  • christi

    Yes, Break is the break between two shows. HBO commercials.

  • Jay

    Yeah, I feel like season three of GOT should have covered the entire third book. So much stuff in these recent episodes could have been cut.

  • Someone

    The first 3 episodes of GoT were OK. Episodes 4 and 5 were really good. I found these last 2 episodes to be pretty bad.

    I expect episode 9 to be the best episode in the series. It will, after all, contain the event that changes everything, and that made the writers want to adapt the series to TV in the first place.

    @Jay: Even if they cut out more stuff (and they’ve already cut out a lot), they would still be unable to fit all of the book into 10 episodes.

  • Ganon

    @Nick

    Could you post the 18-49 ratings for the Adult Swim Saturday line-up? Much thanks in advance.

  • Juan

    It’s interesting that after it was announced that GOT hit a series high a lot of people were sucking its dick but now that it went down half a ratings point some of those people start bashing the show and call it boring after just one episode.

  • Mothrak

    People with short attention spans should not watch GoT. Go watch a Michael Bay movie. “The dragon parts were kewl”. Everything isn’t about being kewl. It’s the subtlety and layering that’s interesting. I’m glad the vast majority of people aren’t so nitwitted.

  • Fed master

    yep Survivor destroies Game of Thrones, as it should be. :)

  • 90s

    @Nick, could we get:

    Sat AM:
    9:30 – Fairly Oddparents
    11:00 – TMNT
    11:30 – Monsters vs Aliens

    Sat PM:
    9:00 – Big Time Rush (rerun)
    9:30 – Wendell and Vinnie (rerun)

    Thank you!

  • Steve

    Not having read any of the Thrones books, what I don’t get is how we can be in “book 3″ of the novels, while already in the third season of the show. Adapting any large book to TV/movies usually means cutting out huge amounts of story. So I would’ve thought one book would have enough material for at least two full seasons.

    And given that it seems that the TV series is pretty slow, I’d think that means that just hardly anything happens in the books. Is that right? Or from those who’ve read the books, are they just leaving out tons of story in the TV series?

  • Luke

    The twist ending of this episode of Break was amazing. I expect the ratings next week to skyrocket.

  • romo

    Wait till you see next weeks surprise guest star on Break.

  • Neil

    Game of Thrones hates the Cancellation Bear!
