    @Nick
    Could you post #s for the 6/9 episode of Sandwich King and how it fared against the other AM shows, plus the top 5 FOOD AM shows for Sun 6/16, please? As always, I appreciate greatly your valuable info!!! Much thanks in advance!!!

  • Mal

    The Killing has held steady at a .4 for each episode thus far. I’m sure AMC isn’t exactly thrilled, but I wonder if it holds for the entire season (and even rises a tenth or two for its finale) will AMC renew?

  • Lucas

    What happened with Falling Skies?!

  • zap

    Falling Skies series low :O

  • silvit

    @Lucas

    It’s Falling… :lol: Sorry, you asked for it

  • John A

    Wow huge drop for Falling Skies. Terrible for The Client List for its Finale.

  • John A

    Mad Men very low. Even ive stopped watching that boring show.

  • Dennis

    Falling Skies series low….deserved, this season is crap so far

  • Stefan

    @Nick

    WWE Main Event (6/5 & 6/12) and AM Raw (6/8 & 6/15) please- Thanks in advance!

  • peter

    Why was Falling Skies at 10pm instead of 9pm?

  • dj

    Glad RHONJ is dropping so hard. The show is so repetitive and boring!

  • The End

    @FALLING SKIES TNT 10:00 PM 2.79 1.0

    Wtf.. I don’t even.. sigh

  • Juan

    Against weaker competition, the encore of Thrones’ season finale drew a 0.4 range. True Blood’s drew a 0.6. Not only does TB cost less to produce, but it’s fan base warrants “live events”. TB obviously has better repeat value than Thrones which is isn’t surprising given that Thrones appeals mostly to the large LotR fan base which have little else SxS to watch to fill their hunger.

  • Wright

    Very sad to see Falling Skies drop. It’s way better than True Blood.

  • nerv

    I can’t believe Falling Skies fell hard and it wasn’t even competing directly with True Blood season premiere. In fact, it did better facing Game of Throne’s season finale. NBA may have taken some audience from it since FS skews more towards the male demographic as opposed to TB’s female demographic.

  • Daniel

    True Blood did good, but it will probably drop form here. I wonder how Dexter will affect True Blood.

  • TOM

    Now TNT take Falling Skies back to 9PM

  • FLOP Detector

    Falling Ratings / FLOP Skies

    True FLOP

  • Doc Michaels

    Falling Skies is off to an AWFUL start. Jumping ahead in time (Wyle is the “President”? Where did that come from?) and falling back on old sci-fi cliches (ooo, a creepy child exhibiting advanced intelligence…where have we seen THAT before?) has produced a really rough start out of the gate. What idiot did they have running this season?

  • Renz

    What about HLN’s Daytime Emmys I heard it was watched by 5 million people where is it on the list?
