  • Christian

    Yes!!! For MTV’s The Real World Potland and BRAVO’s Million Dollar Listing New York!! That’s my TV Wednesday nights!!

  • Mr Mikey

    Good to see the NHL Playoffs up there.

  • MichaelChickless

    Go PSYCH!

  • Mike

    Go psych…., let make it to 9 seasons and a movie……

    They should make a psych / monk TV movie (ith cameos from the cast of burn notice

  • Liam

    Its nice to see Castle and Charmed repeating well.

  • kbmv

    Not bad for the NHL. It was expected with an abundance of powerhouse hockey traditions and big markets left in the playoffs. Boston vs NYR might break 1.0 tonight.

  • kbmv

    Memphis vs SAS should be a borefest. I think we will see double digit % drop from last years west finals. So will the east even with The Heat in it. The Pacers are certainly not gonna cover their end.

  • Cameron

    People really are missing out on this season of The Real World. It’s the first time I’ve watched in forever, and it’s really good.

  • Guest

    The Real World is really good this season full of DRAMA! Sucks more people aren’t tuning in, you’re missing out.

  • Shawn and Gus

    Go psych! Come on son!

  • Torrid

    @kbmv
    ….our lurking NHL hockey superfan :) (didn’t I tangle with you last season when you went by a different name? ;) )

    “..Memphis vs SAS should be a borefest. I think we will see double digit % drop from last years west finals. So will the east even with The Heat in it. The Pacers are certainly not gonna cover their end…”

    … aaaah your concern about the looming NBA ratings disaster is so touching man….I weep with you :(

    ============= Meanwhile,back in the real world of NBA vs NHL ===============

    NHL SEMI FINALS L NBCSN 8:00PM 1.45 0.7
    POST SEMI FINALS NBCSN 10:43PM 0.77 0.4

    Looks like the “primetime” NHL game and the post game talkshow combined just about matches ratings for the NBA “midnight” talkshow (when most people are in bed) – c’mon hockey! I’m rooting for you this season! :)

  • Matt

    Anybody else love how yesterday, Torrid felt the need to rip NHL ratings compared to NBA ratings? How shocking, the NHL rating for a game one rating was considerably lower than two game 4s…

    … Not to mention the NHL game featured a Canadian team…

    What a genius.

  • Matt

    Oh and he’s back today, what joy.

  • Torrid

    *sweet*…. I knew i’d uncloak you out sooner or later Mattie … how u been? :)

  • Torrid

    like I said to your fellow hockey head kbmv …. I’m just rooting for your little game this year Matt … lets hope the SCF playoff ratings can give that ole’ “INSIDE THE NBA PLAYOFFS” talk-show a real run for its money this time; and that the NHL hockey playoff can reduce the number of TV shows (including reruns) ahead of it ratings wise from last year’s dismal 66 to like 33 …. u wit me son?

  • McGramm

    What I actually think is how great the NBA ratings have been in this semifinals considering there’s been no Lakers and no Celtics. They must be pretty joyful in the headquarters when San Antonio vs GS and Memphis vs OKC can go head to head with the Knicks and the Heat.

  • rob60990

    Go Duck Dynasty. Repeats tearing it up. GOOD FOR THEM.

  • Matt

    It must be fun to brag about your garbage sport’s ratings when their network is available to 25 million more households, LOL.

  • McGramm

    More households wouldn’t make a difference for the NHL, if I’m correct this is the first NHL game in the top 100, I mean they haven’t had the viewers to be in the TOP 100! I mean FULL HOUSE and SQUIDBILLIES, are in the top 100. And from the top 10 all around cable rating the NBA had 7 of the 10 broadcasts. I mean they are not mad with those results, the NHL is not mad either they know they are a fringe sport, so everybody is happy, don’t be a sourpuss Matt.

  • Casey

    The best season of The Real World ever!
