  • shawn

    daily show going down, conan benefiting

  • DEF

    Can someone post Melissa & Joey’s 2nd episode ratings and the 2 Baby Daddy ratings? Thanks!

  • Melissa

    Ouch, series low for the Royal Pains premiere.

  • Mike

    I think USA was to quick to cancel burn notice… They don’t have anything truely strong to replace it…

    Unless Graceland rises!!!

    Hopefully they give psych a 9th season order then…

    The only show performing as well as burn notice is suits at the moment on USA network… With psych pulling good numbers after 7 years

  • Laurence Glavin

    If they gave names to tsunamis the way they give names to hurricanes, the next one should be named “Paul” as in Paul McCartney who’s the embodiment of someone who’s “washed up”. Nine-hundred-K is not an impressive number for a heavily-hyped episode of “The Colbair Repohr”. It appears that there was a fairly big tuneout after “The Daily Show”.

  • charlie

    odd,USA got a 0.7 for it’s original and they didn’t pick up ‘Happy Endings’ because of it’s ‘ratings’ on ABC

  • Ratings

    Sam & Cat is doing very well this week!!!!!

  • The End

    Paranormal Witness is quite an entertaining show, and can be creepy at times. Just don’t take the stories seriously and you’l enjoy. Last season had some genuinely creepy but entertaining episodes.

    This season is like 20 episodes, 2 episodes in, 18 left to go. The ratings are okay for what it is though.

    I kinda enjoy this show as you can tell lol

  • Podgey

    @DEF I don’t know about Baby Daddy but last week’s Melissa and Joey got a 0.3 rating and 0.81 million viewers (Their lowest amount of viewers in all 3 seasons). Nice to see them back on form again this week though.

  • msupdate

    The Real World is a little disappointing for the season finale of the best season for quite a while. I was expecting 1.25 million/0.8.

  • taylor

    someone post both episodes of mellisa and joey and BD ratings

  • Carmen

    Royal Pains premiere was not one of its strongest episodes. . .by quite a bit

  • assassin

    msupdate:

    Really, I thought this was one of the weaker seasons as the majority of the cast seemed to be putting on a fake front. But what is worse is they were not really all that interesting.

    Does anyone have the ratings for the reunion show (not in the list above, but cannot believe it did less than a 0.2). Coral was very good as the host.

  • Nathan

    Sam and Cat is a repeat monster!!

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    The Daily Show and Colbert Report always do well on election years. Their ratings always fall on non-election years and always in the summer. Jon Stewert being gone doesn’t help. I honestly love John Oliver, but not everyone must think that

  • EatMorePez

    @Laurence Glavin

    By that reasoning, Rihanna is washed up because her recent FOX special was a ratings disaster. I guess the washed up McCartney will have to console himself with his two recent sold out shows at the Barclays Center and the headlining spot at Bonnaroo.

  • cimmer

    Royal Pains winning the night sounds impressive until you see the ratings of the repeats that beat it then it looks sort of grim.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    I watched Melissa and Joey for the first time last night only because my local ABC station was covering weather instead of The Middle. I enjoyed Melissa and Joey enough, but its not winning any awards. I didn’t care for Baby Daddy. I quit half way through to see the last half of Family Tools. Why again does ABC have both of it’s comedy lineups on Wednesday?

  • MM

    OWN has a hit for Tuesdays & Wednesdays!
    ‘Love Thy Neighor’ holding up increasing during the hour,or well the 2nd new
    episode increased in viewers!
    “OWN” is on a roll!!

  • Baby Daddy fan

    Loved the back-to-back episodes of Baby Daddy. This season is even better than Season 1, hope more people tune in…
