    Have And Have Nots did much better than what I thought it could do

  • EatMorePez

    Oh look, there’s a show called “Flip or Flop.” Maybe someone can come up with a really clever pun to describe that show’s ratings.

  • Johnson

    Is the NBA the 2nd most watched sport in America now

  • kbmv

    @johnson

    Yes it is. But, the NFL is so far ahead of every other sport so it’s really not 2nd. The NFL is in it’s own category.

  • kbmv

    That’s just pro sports. College football gets more viewers than the NBA.

  • Johnson

    not really

  • Recollected

    Don’t Be Tardy is holding steady either at 1 million or near 1 million viewers per episode. I could see Bravo giving a go on Season 3.

    Shame that Bravo had to do quick schedule changes for Married to Medicine.

  • DEF

    Awkward anyone?

  • shayne

    Congrats to the OWN network 3 shows with well over a million viewers each show!!
    Oprah’s finally getting a successful network. Saturdays and sundays are doing well and now tuesdays and wednesdays! You doin’ it Ms O

    @Johnson

    Yes the NBA is the 2nd most popular sport in America now, and it skews younger than baseball, which means more advertiser dollars. In 2012, the NBA Finals went 5 games. Game 5 got 18.4 million viewers. You have to go back to 2002 to find a MLB Game 5 to get that many viewers. In 2011, the NBA Finals went 6 games. Game 6 got 23.8 million viewers. You have to go back to 1996 to find a MLB game 6 with those numbers. In 2010 the NBA Finals went 7 games. Game 7 got 28.2 million viewers. Once again, you have to go back to 2002 to find a MLB Game 7 with those numbers.

  • Cody

    My bad, forgot about 2004. It only went 4 games so I didn’t look at it (Game 4 got slightly higher numbers than 2010 Game 7), but 2 years doesn’t make much of a difference. The only way the MLB would beat the NBA in ratings in the next few years is if the Cubs were in the World Series. The point still remains though that the past 3 years of NBA Finals ratings have been better than the past 9 years of MLB World Series ratings.

  • Sam

    It’s kind of interesting how the Heat-Pacers game gets a 3.5, and the Spurs-Grizzlies deciding game got a 2.1.

  • Melanie P.

    @Sam,
    Easy, because the Heat-Pacers matchup has been much more entertaining, IMO. I bet tonight’s game will rate even higher.

    The second part reunion of Married to Medicine really dropped off because they switched nights. However, it should still get a second season though.

  • Sam

    @Melanie P.
    I agree, and I’m sure the NBA Finals will be somewhat down compared to last year because the Spurs have historically (since Duncan and Poppovich have been there) have had down ratings.

  • msupdate

    Awkward 1.35 million; 0.6 18-49

  • iMember

    Awkward is climbing back up as school comes to a close. LOVE the show and I was really happy to have it back early, but I hope that the second half of this season airs over next summer. It’s definitely a summer show.

  • Jenny

    Nice to see Awkward rising from it’s series lows. Pretty good cliffhanger as well that had many Jenna fans pissed off.

  • rob60990

    I wish Awkward was higher.

    C’mon people, support a witty, honest show with strong leading ladies!!!!!

  • QcHawkeye

    How bad is cable tv when that most shows can’t even beat reruns of BigBang and Family Guy?
