  • Barbarossa

    Yeah the finale episode will be the real test, to see if some of the visceral reaction to the Red Wedding i real or not

  • RatingsRaceFan

    @Nick,

    Do you have ratings for Marvel’s Avengers Assemble on Disney XD, Sunday May 26 at 11:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.? Thank you for any numbers you can provide.

  • Oliver

    @marc

    The Danish original is/was more popular but the US version is still successful, and it will be at a fraction of the price of Netflix originals.

  • UKTVFan

    Hi Nick, do you have the Orphan Black numbers for this week (6/1) and last week (5/25)? Thanks in advance.

  • RyanCanada

    what about the ratings for The Wanted? it aired before or after kardasians

  • Dillan

    The Wanted Life got 600k. It was in a press release by E!

  • dendu

    Revolution -Finale 2.0 (18-49) – 6.28 Million

  • try harder

    Why everyone gives credit to the same bunch of morons who every time some characters are killed in a TV show react like their parents died ? Of course the ratings will not drop and will almost certainly rise since it’s the season finale. Wooooo GoT will be cancelled because of the Red Wedding. ROFL!

  • Evan

    Wonder if netflix would completely take over the killing if it proves to be successful oversees airing on just netflix. I love the show but with those ratings there is no way AMC is happy. They promoted the hell out of the premiere.

  • Andrew

    @ Nick,

    Can you please post the ratings for Parts Unknown (CNN) at 9PM Sunday and Travel Channel Sunday 8-10PM lineup. Many thanks!

  • Michael

    REAL HSWIVES OF NJ BRVO 8:00 PM 2.84 1.3

    People love themselves some Teresa Giudice!

  • Dan S

    GOT provides a lot of cutthroat action. I seriously doubt people will tune out of the season finale after this last episode.
    Why do certain people rejoice in low ratings to a show I presume they’re not watching ?

  • Kevin

    “Rich: Wonder what next week’s GoT will be–will all those swearing they’ll never watch the show again keep their promise? Bet it sets a new record.”

    Pretty sure ratings went up a lot after Eddard died in s1 as well! People may say they want to quit but their curiosity will get the best of most of them!

  • romo

    kevin,

    Yep the season 2 GOT finale was the most watched ep of that season.

  • Ultima

    @John
    GoT at its peak can’t even top True Blood at its peak lmao

    Unless I’m mistaken, the True Blood series high is 5.53 million viewers and the Game of Thrones series high is 5.50 million viewers; not really sure why that’s so laughable (especially because GoT will likely top that next week).

    @John

    You must be missing a brain or something. Game of Thrones has peaked? Don’t think so bud. And GoT has more viewers than True Blood in it’s first 3 seasons had ever reached. True Blood never topped 5.5 million viewers.

    Please know your facts before you make some asinine comment.

  • Weez

    I wish Family Tree was getting more viewers, but hopefully HBO will renew it regardless, as it’s a fantastic show. And it joins two other fantastic shows on HBO, Game of Thrones and Veep. Didn’t even both watching The Killing – two seasons was enough. Between those three shows and Mad Men, there’s just too much competition to bother.

  • LINDA

    @NICK, YOU SHOULD REALLY GET A WEBSITE OF YOUR OWN OR DO A PARTNERSHIP WITH TVBYTHENUMBERS BECAUSE YOU ARE REALLY WHO WE WANT WHEN IT COMES TO CABLE
