    Two things wrong.

    @Hannibal makes up for its low ratings when the DVR Live ratings come out.

    Not an achievement when the numbers are low to begin with.

    @It’s always on top of the list for biggest percentage increase.

    No it’s not. There are other NBC shows such as Revolution adding a 1.4-1.5 18-49 to its live totals with the Live + 7 numbers.

  • The End

    Disregard my second point about percentage increase regarding Revolution, I blame tiredness.

    @DenverDan, What, you say the Heat aren’t a big draw? You obviously don’t have a clue as to what you are talking about! The Heat a one of the most followed and watched teams in all of sports. The fact is that the Spurs aren’t a big draw. They never have been if you look at the ratings the years they were in the finals.

  • charmedcraft

    “The NBA Final ratings are no surprise – the Spurs are buzz kills, but the Heat aren’t the biggest draw either. Compare to Lakers or Celtics. I have zero interest in LeBron”

    I agree, can’t stand LJ, he is so full of himself; I only watch hoping they loose. 1 game down, 3 more to go!

    So you dont think 0.2 after a TVD repeat is bad lol. Its terrible actually :-)

  • harry

    Hanibflop got renewed and go on cancelled…

  • harry

    flop on* but i liked flop on.

  • Ed B


    BATB repeat got more viewers than TVD. And it definitely repeats better than TCD which always gets 0.1 repeats.

    BATB also repeats better than HoD. Just saying.

  • yoyo

    Ho hum

    Hannibal deserves better than this. The show and cast are great.

    Let’s keep perspective here – no playoff should be expected to increase year by year – the dynamics are too many and varied. Its unrealistic to expect an increase yearly – that being said….. The NBA is growing by leaps and bounds – check this article out from USAToday:-
    NBA Finals boast record international presence

    Social media has allowed sports fans all over the world to connect with one another in ways they never have before, and for the 2013 Finals, the NBA is taking that inclusiveness to even greater heights.

    The NBA announced in a press release that the Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs will be broadcast in 215 countries and territories and be translated into 47 languages.

    NBA FINALS: Preview, schedule

    Now to revise an earlier posting on the NBA/NHL comparison – I had used overnights before now with final numbers:-

    Thursday Head-to-Head National Ratings: NHL vs NBA
    8:30PM ABC NBA Countdown 2.0 (18-49) / 5.38 mil
    9:00PM ABC NBA Finals (Game 1) 5.7 (18-49) / 14.24 mil
    9:00PM NBCSN NHL CONFERENCE FINALS L 0.8 (18-49) / 2.02 mil
    Let’s see how these hockey fans – SPIN DAT!!!

    You think the cast of Hannibal is good until you watch the movie Red Dragon. Its clear why Hannibal has little viewers.

  • Eliot


    I don’t think it’s bad, no. I think it’s encouraging. It did drop to a 0.2, but that’s that not a significant drop from that TVD repeat is it! Besides, it grew in total viewers – and those viewing figures aren’t too far off what some of its original episodes get when they first screen. For a network in big trouble at the moment, this shows performance in repeats I feel is encouraging. Look at it this way, it beat some of Nikita season three episodes and shows like Oh Sit! on the network. :)

  • CrimTV

    Repeat numbers have nothing to do with a shows renewal chances, especially in the Summer.

  • Tiffany

    Maybe some of us stopped watching after the “Roti” episode. I did. Not returning to Hannibal. That was honestly WORSE than ANY episode of GoT – including that last one.

  • Eliot


    I didn’t say they did. Just that it was encouraging. :D


    That does NOT prove anything…so it equalled B&B’s repeat. Go Nikita! :D I rest my case.

  • Tessa

    I sure hope Hannibal gets a boost in ratings next season as people catch up. I just started watching the show and it’s beyond amazing. I have to remind myself this is NBC, not HBO, Showtime or AMC because it is too good for Network TV. Maybe that’s the problem. The show belongs on Cable. God knows Dexter, The Walking Dead, Homeland or AHS might have faced the same ratings struggle had they been on NBC.

  • Mathew

    every thursdya i watch both save mes and then does someone have to go?
