  • Dennis

    Good for Falling Skies repeat
    :D
    :D

    Better then some new DALLAS airings :D

  • Tati

    LeBron JAMES!!!!!

  • Michael

    Since, Teen Mom ended, at least MTV has success with Real World making this list weekly.

  • Cam

    MDLNY is doing very good! :D

  • Mr Mikey

    Good numbers for the NBA, much better than Memphis and San Antonio.

  • Dillan

    @Michael

    Real World may be making the list (meaning its adults 25-54 is good), its still the same rating as Awkward.

  • Michael

    @Dillan,

    Touché! However, Real World has been on air since the early 90s.

  • DenverDean

    Can only imagine what the last hour was like for NBA. I even tuned in and I loathe the NBA. Go Blackhawks!

  • Eric

    Supernatural is on fire!

    Does anyone knows which cable network has the rights for The Vampire Diaries reruns?

  • kbmv

    That really was a great great game. I watched every second of it and it was close throughout.

  • rob60990

    “Better then some new DALLAS airings”

    If you’re gonna troll, at least troll right information so you don’t look stupid.

    :D

  • The End

    I’m happy with those Falling Skies numbers ;) Though to me they suggest that the older viewers didn’t bother with the repeats, if they come back for the Premiere of Season 3 with some younger Nielsen viewers added to that, I can see it getting at least 4 million, 1.0 18-49 in June, here’s hoping.

    Anyway kinda sad about Mythbusters, you get the vibe this show won’t be on the air in a few years time, at least for new episodes.. Dunno, it’s been going on for almost 10 years now, I’m sure they’l want to move on to other things in the future.

  • Andies

    They should just end the Real World.. It can’t even get a million viewers any more.. It’s sad to see a once amazing ground breaking show like this…

  • LOL

    Oh Matty! Looking forward to seeing you spin these numbers.

  • Torrid

    Come out come out wherever you are … calling Mattie Poodle … calling Mattie Poodle…. where u at Matt…hockey desperately needs your spin man!!!
    ============================================================================

    Be warned Matt…the following is gonna leave a mark!!!….

    This getting really embarrassing Matt :(
    Not only did the NBA pregame show wipe the floor with the hockey game but the MIDNIGHT talkshow (when most people are in bed) obliterated the NHL primetime ratings!!!!!!

    Somebody please! hand Matt a box of tissue (and a large double roll for the other end) – Lol!!

  • Matt

    @LOL, these numbers are pretty easy to spin… So easy in fact that it’s sad you even feel the need to trash talk about them.

    Smallest market in the league vs. Canadian market.

    Game. Set. Match. The fact that they did that high of a number is actually surprising.

    Newsflash: Your point sucks. Get a new one.

  • Charmed

    Why is The Real World still on? Bring back Daria! :)

  • brett

    psych steady as ever :)love that show

  • Recollected

    I think MTV would like to at least hit the 30th season milestone with The Real World.

  • Melanie P.

    Yay Miami Heat!! :)
