    Game of Owns. After the next episode, when something completely shocking happens, the hype will surely put it put it over 6 million and 3.0 for the finale.

  • John A

    Nice to see the client list up.

  • DW

    i turned to hbo at 9:58 and i saw the end of GOT. there was no break at that time.

  • marc

    Mad Men was so (positively) crazy last night. Loved this episode!

  • Mike Rand

    What have the ratings for “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” been like on E!?

  • Stefan

    @Nick

    WWE Main Event, Saturday Morning Slam and AM Raw please- Thanks in advance!

  • AJ

    What the hell… Why are Good Luck Charlie’s numbers declining?! It was the stupid award show…

  • Tommy M.

    I sort of expected North America to do better than that. Not that it did badly but don’t programs like this usually get ridiculously high ratings?

  • BenA

    How did Austin and Ally do?

  • AAFan4Life

    @Nick

    How did Austin and Ally do?

  • Bob

    The Client List beat Army Wives this week, but Army Wives beat The Client List last week. Both shows are doing pretty well though.

  • Sean

    Yay for THE CLIENT LIST !

  • Nathan

    @AJ
    The BBMA’s premiered at 8/7c, GLC premiered at 7:30/6:30c. The award show had no effect on GLC. Either the time slot is the problem, which is unlikely because the season had a good start, or viewers are just getting tired of it.

    @Tommy M: it didn’t do much worse than last year’s Frozen Planet (~3.5M average in its Discovery Channel premiere). For that Discovery also released some “millions and millions” release which included any viewing (not the average) on all the channels. Not sure about North America, but Frozen Planet, Life, etc were simulcast on several channels.

  • TimsDale4ever

    VEEP!!!!!!!!!

  • Ganon

    @Nick

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

  • romo

    How come they say HBO doesnt care about ratings yet they are skipping game of thrones this week cause last years memorial weekend ep was the lowest rated of the season ?

    Seems like they do care.

  • Sam

    Mad Men’s episode was amazingly crazy.

  • Cody

    @romo

    HBO doesn’t care about the 18-49 demo, just total viewers because they are subscription based. They don’t care when you watch it, but they understand that having everyone watch the episode at the same time is good business. People will be talking about the events of Episode 9 the next day, and they want to maximize the number of people who are talking about it.

  • Juan

    Nick, please provide the 18-49 & total viewers for Vortexx, BBCA, & adultswim on Sat. The Dr Who season finale was Sat, & there are 2 ep left of Orphan Black. It’s a shame more adults are not sticking around for OB.

    romo, HBO definitely cares about ratings during sweeps months like May because then they get a look at all 204 markets Nielsen covers. They use that data to better market & promote in areas where they forsee more growth potential in subscribers. They also use it to market & promote video sales of shows like GoT. The areas where the ratings are stronger will see more signage & ads & such. Since those sales are most likely to come from 18-49 that’s the demog they pay most attention to. Outside of sweeps months, the data they get on the top 25 markets is probably of little use. That growth potential is probably saturated & future synd deals depend mostly on data during sweeps.
