    Any news on Awkwards’s Finale ratings?

  • Hillbilly

    If the premiers has anything to do with it TNT will beat USA in the weekly cable ratings that comes out on Tuesday. NCIS might carry USA to a win.

  • Marixa

    I really got into Necessary Roughness I hope it goes up ! I really enjoy seeing the chemistry that the cast has it really shows on scree.

  • POIFanatic

    I watch two shows on USA and that too quite sporadically – Necessary Roughness and Royal Pains.

    NR is better than most of their offerings and the only reason I watch Royal Pains sometimes is the super-hottie, Reshma Shetty (Divya).

    Royal Pains only 0,7 ????

  • JD

    Finally checked out Baby Daddy after seeing people on this board rave about it… Not impressed and I love me a good classic sitcom. I’ve seen M&J on occasion and it’s okay if nothing else on, but it doesn’t draw me back to look for it. I would never those shows existed if not for this board, so maybe ABCF needs to do better promoting. I’ve heard quite a bit of promotion about The Fosters and Twisted (or whatever its called).

    The Golden Sisters show on OWN is hysterical. Wonder how it held up at 10pm on Wednesday night?

  • Recollected

    @JD, Golden Sisters is doing much better on Wednesdays than its Saturday time slot.

    Golden Sisters (10:00) – OWN
    0.583 million viewers, #24; 0.200 million adults 18-49 (0.2 rating), #28

    Golden Sisters (10:30) – OWN
    0.451 million viewers, #29; 0.154 million adults 18-49 (0.1 rating), #29

    @Patrick Ausgewahlt

    ABC is in reruns except for “Family Tools” and “How to Live” for the summer. Since its summer hiatus season, that’s why ABC Family does their programming on the same night.

  • Judy912

    Wow, CASTLE is doing wonderfully in viewership and a .4 isn’t bad for repeats episodes with the prime 18-49 age group. I know I watch the series every day the TNT network broadcast’s it even during ocassional marathon’s.

  • mike

    Any ratings for couples therapy i like this cast Flavor Flav, Catelynn and Tyler, Heather and Dustin. Could do without Joe Francis and I really don’t know who Chingy is.

  • Rave Mystery

    I hope that my Melissa and Joey will pick up in the ratings soon because I love that show and it’s the only one I watch on that channel.
