The season premiere of Franklin and Bash earned a 0.6. Your predictions were too optimistic

    Bryan just invented a new Fan Excuse Bingo square: It would have gotten better ratings if the show that airs after it had been canceled.

  • Mikel

    I’m disappointed by the F&B ratings as I thought that both episodes were hilariously entertaining!

  • Ram510

    @ EatMorePez

    Best post of the day LOL!

  • pll fan

    melissa & joey and baby daddy doing terrible since they returned a few weeks ago.

  • Cyrax86

    My prediction for Franklin & Bash was accurate, I knew it wouldn’t do well. Necessary Roughness is probably holding onto its dear life as long as it’s only slightly below Royal Pains…

  • Rave Mystery

    glad that Melissa and Joey is getting back up in the ratings and hopefully it get sable and the same for my Tv Land sitcoms.

  • Jason

    The cast of HIC done an amaze job live. Well done!

  • Michael1

    Great job for John Oliver on “The Daily Show.” Maybe Jon Stewart should take some more time off. I guess that the level to which people would miss Jon telling them that he’s Jewish, New Jersey, and lives in NYC was somewhat overestimated.

  • tj

    @rOckmypants..No it’s only for the episode that aired at 9, the other episode didn’t make the list. Duck Dynasty taking a dip and Royal Pains is holding up, nice. Full House is doing good because there aren’t really any family shows that you can leave the room for a minute and not worry about anything being inappropriate for the kids.

  • were123

    Great for Futurama! Could Comedy Central reconsider if it continues to win the night?

  • xwiseguyx

    I rarely get so bored with a show that I don’t even watch it until the end, but that was the case with Franklin and Bash… was curious to see if adding Heather Locklear was an improvement… it wasn’t. The show is still crappy. Good riddance.

  • Oliver

    Futurama would be a good fit for FXX if Fox decides it wants to keep it going.

  • FLOP Detector

    FLOPrama.

  • Igwell

    Yeah, maybe Adult Swim will want Futurama back.

    Surprised nobody blamed Piers Morgan for F&B’s ratings.

  • Danny Tanner

    Wow at Full House. With ratings like that I think its time for a reboot on ABC Family or ABC!

  • Jon23812

    @The End, Futurama costs $1 million an episode.

  • david

    Fullhouse is doing really good on nick at night. Mellissa and Joey and Baby Daddy doing better this week.

  • Judy912

    The TNT network should be pleased at the ‘CASTLE’ overall viewers hitting over 2 million at the 8 PM hour Wednesday night. I am one of those viewers that never miss an episode. It helps hold me over until the new season starts up in the end of September. WAY TO GO CASTLE!!

  • D. Aaron

    Wow, Restaurant Stakeout beat Mythbusters in overall viewers but lost in 18-49 viewers!

    Perhaps its number will go down next week after the Paula Deen scandal!

  • danielcw

    @Jon23812:
    Only 1 Million for Futurama per episode?
