    How big will THE KILLING flop this Sunday??? :D :D :D

  • Stefan

    @Nick

    WWE Main Event and AM Raw please- Thanks in advance!

  • JacobYates

    @Dennis
    You remind me of Max. You both hate shows for no reason.

  • TimsDale4ever

    With very little knowledge of Liberace, CANDLEABRA turned out so much better than I could have ever imagined. Douglas and Damon were perfectly cast — and whoever did makeup deserves an emmy! So many stars kept popping up — Debbie Reynolds, Rob Lowe. I was just continually dumbfounded by all of it.

  • NickMe

    wow so great for Sonjay & Craig Nickelodeon, but on Saturday??

  • Surun Tunne

    How did Orphan Black do on Saturday?

  • BigBrotherFan

    What the heck is going on with MAD MEN? Why is it at a .6? :s

    I happen to LIKE the KILLING and hope it does decent.

  • RatingsRaceFan

    @Nick,

    Do you have ratings for Marvel’s Avengers Assemble on Disney XD, Sunday at 11:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.? If you have kids 6 to 11 audience data, similar to the CW Saturday morning ratings, in addition to total viewers and adults 18 to 49 ratings, that would be great. Thank you for the numbers you provide each week.

  • Daniel

    This week was probably Nurse Jackie and The Borgias best chance to make the list. I wonder if they will get renewed?

  • Ben

    Actually, Nurse Jackie is having good ratings lately, better than last season.

  • John A

    Wow at Mad Men. 0.6 is terrible for that overhyped show.

  • JJ

    Mad Men peaked 2 or 3 seasons ago..its only downhill from here.

  • Juan

    Nick, please provide the 18-49 & total viewers for Vortexx, Orphan Black, & adult swim. Thanks a lot in advance!

  • Dan S

    Considering it was the Memorial Day weekend with low viewership I’m not surprised by Mad Men’s numbers. I wonder why AMC just didn’t take the week off like some other Sunday staples like Game of Thrones did ? Regarding the 3rd season of The Killing I actually think it’ll do ok when it returns next Sunday. Somewhere in the range of 0.8-1.0 is my guess.

  • Ganon

    @Nick

    Could you post the 18-49 ratings for the Adult Swim Saturday line-up? Much appreciated as always.

  • 90s

  • Ram510

    @ JJ
    Mad Men “peaked”, at least ratings wise, last season, not 2-3 seasons ago. I personally feel Mad Men hasn’t quite peaked creatively. There’s so much that can still be revealed

    I was hoping Mad Men would hold up better than that for the holiday but still ok.
