    @Nick

    Could you post the last 2 weeks of 18-49 ratings for the Adult Swim Saturday line-up? Thanks in advance.

  • TOM

    Falling Flop why? cuz fall? But still very good for TNT!

    Same for True Blood! Still very very very good for HBO!

    Shut up haters

  • Lucky13

    Do you have Storage Hunters on tru ?

  • Dennis

    HUGE Fall For Falling Skies…. OUCH

    But still, Dallas never once got as high 1.0 in the 18-49 demo in 15 season 2 episodes and it got renewed

  • Jill

    KKK going down, good

  • romo

    Break did well as always i luv that show.

  • Nick

    Sam & Cat ratings please

  • #bravod

    dj,
    I agree that RHONJ has been repetiitive, but not boring. They are still the 2nd highest rated of the Housewives, yet they need a new cast. Kathy is boring, and Jacqueline has never had a true storyline. Caroline is irritating and always speaks in metaphors and her choice of language is repulsive. Melissa has been lying her way through the show, and her scenes always seem very fake and manipulated. For season 6, I recommend the cast be:
    Teresa
    Melissa
    Jacqueline
    Jennifer Dalton (friend of the housewives this season)
    *new housewife
    And brink back Danielle Staub!
    Caroline (reduced role, though)

  • THE OLD MAN

    Cool that TB placed first & hope it maintains that level–the ep really wasn’t that bad

    Mountain Men 0.8 not bad considering competition–hope IRT ticks up a bit

  • MichaelChickless

    Is the Sky Falling?

  • 90s

    @Nick

    Nickelodeon AM:
    9:30 – Fairly Oddparents
    10:00 – Spongebob Squarepants
    10:30 – Sanjay and Craig
    11:00 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    11:30 – Monsters vs Aliens

    Nickelodeon PM:
    8:00 – Sam and Cat
    8:30 – Marvin Marvin
    9:00 – Big Time Rush
    9:30 – Wendell and Vinnie

    Thanks!

    Falling Skies easily won it’s time slot across all major male demog’s for basic cable so suggeting it’s a flop is as absurd as saying Idol was a flop this yr. Still, it’s encore #’s are weak (losing to even Friends on TVLand). It’s renewal is certain as long as it continues to win, but it’s budget may be compromised. It’s hard to justify such things for shows with weak repeat value.

  • jonathan

    The Client List finale was very entertaining.0.7 adults at 10 pm is good rating.i wish it was 0.8 or higher.but still then it is safe.it WILL be renewed.

  • Sadie

    Keeping up with the Kardashians ” is on a downward spiral in the ratings 3.2, then 2.5, now 2.13. Trending down, do I smell cancellation? Even the birth of the baby couldn’t draw more viewers.

  • charmedcraft

    I just started watching Falling Skies on Netflix, I’m trying to keep interested in it, but it seems to drag on. I find myself hitting fast forward so I can get through the whole episode. There’s too much family drama and not enough action. I’ll watch the rest of season 1 and hope it picks up otherwise I’ll have to take the rest of the seasons off my quene.

  • Pooty

    Good to see RHONJ drop. Maybe Bravo will finally revamp this tired show. Who cares if Melissa and Joe can’t seem to get along with Teresa (or the other way around). It has been beaten too death. The ladies of RHOA must be sitting back sipping margaritas…they are still the Queens of Bravo!

  • Tianyi Li

    Feel sad for Falling Skies. This drop is too big, hope it doesn’t further drop below 1.0. I like this show

  • RatingsRaceFan

    @Nick,

    Do you have numbers for the two episodes of Pac-Man on Disney XD, Saturday at 11:30 am and 12:00 pm? Thank you for any numbers you can provide.

  • Tianyi Li

    @jonathan
    Please look more carefully. The finale scored 0.6, not 0.7, I watched last season, but didn’t watch this season. As it’s a 10:00 p.m. show, so you are probably right about the renewal

  • Tianyi Li

    @jonathan
    Sorry my mistake, you are right about that 0.7 rating, it was me that didn’t look carefully
