  • Dillan

    No Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy.. I do wonder why people are suddenly not watching it this season..

  • torontomatt

    was a hell of a game

  • Tati

    Meh… the NHL game went into double overtime… finished past midnight, and all they can come up with is 2.84mil?

  • Meanie

    Looks like another slow night in cable. I thought the CMT Awards would do better than that,

  • chrisjozo

    What is happening with Awkward, Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy. Their ratings have all taken steep drops this season.

  • Michael

    Hmm, I think ABC Family renewed Melissa and Joey way too quickly. As much I love this comedy lineup, not doing well in the ratings department.

    @Dillan, you’re quick to label a show a flop, why not Melissa and Joey? Lol. ;)

  • Mike

    I watched the NHL game up until the OTs started because I needed to get to sleep. I wouldn’t think a longer game would be more viewers, would it? Some would turn it off, like I did.

  • Rachel

    I don’t know who is calling the shots at ABC Family and why they thought it was a good idea to give Baby Daddy another season without knowing how well this is season would perform.

  • Melissa and Joey Fan

    I thought that last night’s Melissa and Joey episode was better written and funnier than the season premiere.

    I saw a full commercial for “The Fosters” during an episode of ABC General Hospital this week.

    Too bad they can’t offer M&J the same luxury – especially since they’re saving major $$ with the CA tax credits on 3 series.

  • Dillan

    @Michael

    What shows have I called flops?

  • 90s

    Crazy to see Nick Jr. lineup so high up on the 18-49 ratings. Even higher than SBSP.

  • Baby Daddy fan

    Great Baby Daddy show last night. Can’t believe it’s not charting…..love the show and the cast!

  • kbmv

    Those are good ratings for the NHL. Bruins vs Blackhawks would be the best possible matchup the NHL can get. I can’t think of a better pair of teams for the championship as far as ratings go. Bruins and Blackhawks are better ratings draws than the Rangers, Canadians, Red Wings, Caps, etc. The NHL might not get a matchup like this for years so these ratings will set the record and hold for a while. I’m thinking 7 million avg and 11-13 million for a game 7 if it gets that far.

  • Mike #3

    Hurts my knees just looking at that picture.

    Unfortunately (for the NHL’s sake), it looks like the Boston-Pittsburgh series will be a short one.

  • rob60990

    Its very puzzling how poorly both ABC Family sitcoms are doing.

  • Laurence Glavin

    The site as of 5:30 pm Eastern time is not accepting comments at Cable News. That could change I suppose so I’m posting right here right now to see if TVBTN is working generally.

  • yoyo

    Yo

  • Jared

    I LOVE Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy but so far the ratings aren’t anywhere close to last season. I’m just happy both shows are already renewed because if they weren’t I’d be very worried.

  • Laurence Glavin

    I have one observation about the hockey numbers though: the end-of-season championship game for the NFL (called the “Super Bowl” BEFORE it’s played; shouldn’t they hold off until AFTER ther game to see if it’s really “super”?) gets a H-U-G-E audience without regard to the sizes of the markets of the teams participating. KBMV indicates that te NHL finals’ ratings would be dependent on which teams reach that level. Wow…the NHL has some small-town (by media standards) franchises. If two small-town teamsever played for the championship, NBC would really take a hit! (I live near Boston but I’m not a hockey fan so I would watch Chris Hayes and Rachel regardless (or as Faux Right-Wing Propaganda Channel watchers would write “irregardless”) but WHDH-TV in Boston would almost surely get a 40% share. Nate Silver at the NY Times published a hockey-interest number and Boston was NEAR the top of US cities.

  • Dennis

    lol
    ABC are most definitely regretting Melissa and Joeys early renewal :D :D

    The “Anger Management” of ABCFAM :D
