    “cause last years memorial weekend ep was the lowest rated of the season”

    That reason is good enough for me. Why air an episode when you know more than the typical amount of subscribers will not watch it? Better to wait a week. People will understand skipping Memorial Day.

  • Ram510

    I hope Mad Men doesn’t drop too much next week with it being a holiday weekend. I’m a little surprised they are airing a new episode next week

  • UKTVFan

    Hi Nick, I’ll second the request for Doctor Who and Orphan Black from Saturday night. As always, thanks for the extra ratings information!

  • 90s

    Hey Nick, could we get

    Nick Saturday:

    9:30am – Fairly Odd Parents
    10:00am – Spongebob Squarepants
    10:30am – Spongebob Squarepants
    11:00am – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    11:30am – Monsters vs Aliens – Premiere

    9:00pm – Big Time Rush
    9:30pm – Wendell and Vinnie

    Thank you so much!

  • Juan

    Skipping Memorial Day weekend also has True Blood’s premiere a wk after GoT’s finale. That makes promoting the two more effective.

  • Weez

    @romo

    Another reason is that HBO has to air “Behind the Candelabra” prior to the first of June in order to qualify for awards season, and when you’ve got Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Dan Akroyd, Rob Lowe, and a director like Steven Soderbergh making – reportedly – his last feature film, you don’t shuffle it off to a random night of the week. Also, HBO traditionally avoids airing new episodes of their original programming on holiday weekends. Last year was the first I could recall them not skipping a holiday weekend, actually, and that caused a season low viewership for arguable the biggest episode of the the show yet.

  • Colin

    The client list is such a horrific show for stupid people.

  • DANIEL

    Finally a good episode of GoT! I heard it’s being delayed by an extra week. Probably gonna lead to a drop in ratings..

  • Colin

    Is BREAK a show on HBO?

  • Marlene

    The Client List back up I hope it stays steady and gets a 3rd Season ! <3

  • Seth

    @NICK

    Ratings for VORTEXX CW and for Yu-Gi-Oh and Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal?

  • svsnt021

    @Nick
    Do you have #s for the top 3 Sat-Sun FOOD AM shows, please? As always, I appreciate tremendously your valuable info!!!

  • OWN Fan

    Does anyone have ratings for OWN’s ‘Super Soul Sunday’?

  • Jake

    Where the heck is Dog and Beth on CMT???

  • JD

    Sucks that Thrones is off next week, but knowing what happens, it’s not exactly holiday fare lol. And it’ll be a huge talking point as well, just like the ninth episodes of seasons past. Guessing the finale will hit a 3.0 or close to it.

  • BD

    It makes sense to skip a week for GOT..this is a pivotal episode so you want the audience. The week off won’t hurt it.

  • GG

    Good for Client List. It even beat Army Wives.

    That 3rd season renewal should come already.

  • Rodger

    Showtime does have new programming next week, I wonder how HBO not showing any new shows will affect there ratings?

  • John A

    Nurse Jackie?
