    Good Luck Charlie did AMAZING late night. Plus, it was a rerun!!! Disney’s best show :D

  • Charmed

    Yay, Charmed is on the list! The CW should reconsider the spin-off with Wyatt and Chris, with Supernatural probably ending in the next 2 years, it could be a great replacement.

  • Vince

    Wow, USA’s The Moment could not even crack this rating list. Kurt Warner’s a great guy, but glad to see another ‘reality’ show flop.

  • Ryan Stoppable

    Not really surprised to not see Disney’s premieres on the list at all: the scheduled Jessie premiere got pulled, Phineas and Ferb was an afterthought to its character’s appearance on Shark Tank, and Fish Hooks is probably the channel’s weakest show right now.

  • Eric

    Another increase for Da Vinci’s Demons. Maybe it wasn’t such a bad idea to give a second season.

    Da Vinci’s Demons (9:00) – Starz
    0.548 million viewers, Adults 18-49: 0.2 rating

  • Mike

    Wonder how awful ‘Maron’ on IFC is doing (but it is on IFC, on a friday night!).

    I bet Maron will be a bigger hit on Netflix.It is like Louie with famous comedic guest stars ever week (and the return of Judd Hirsch!.Missed him since Dear John went off the air)

  • Torrid

    garsh!!! NHL where the heck are u, c’mon!! – there was no NBA so why aren’t you DOMINATING the night!!!

    I thought you were breathing down the NBA’s neck …LOL! :)

    Any ratings update for Copa Del Rey Final on ESPN on Friday afternoon between Real Madrid vs. Athletico Balboa? Thanks

  • Torrid

    45 shows more popular (in the 19-49 adult demo) than the NHL playoffs, including multiple “Robot Chicken” and “Squidbillies” (what he heck are those anyway?) – that’s real progress there folks because last year it was 66. However if you look across all demographics though its many more than 45, que lastima!!! :(

    —————————————————————————-
    Wanna Google “Alexis Norman” and see why hockey struggles in America? … its a foreign thing and is simply not american. The attempts to force Americans to be interested in this foreign game is demonstrated by this Canadian woman disrespecting and ‘murdering’ our world-reknowned national anthem at a hockey game.

  • david

    I am really surprised to only see one episode of the Super Natural marathon make the list. TNT had the marathon from 10 am to 8 PM on Friday.
