    Aaaawww, not great results for Graceland, bit of a drop for Sullivan And Son, hopefully both go up next week with a lot less competition without NBA around.

    And, while I actually like Anger Management, and before I heard about the Selma Blair situation, I actually had thought that the show would be better without her character Kate and just focused on the group and the leads family. But, his treatment of hers is disgusting and every scene of hers with Charlie Sheen in the show i saw last night I couldn’t help but think how much of an ass he is, and while I like the show and want to watch more episodes, it could constitute karma if it crashes and burns (HARDER THAN ALREADY) when she leaves.

    Bottom Line – CHARLIE SHEEN IS AN ASS!!

  • TV Addict

    FX promoted Wilfred so hard, it sucks that it didn’t place. I really hope they tell us the whole reason behind Ryan and Wilfred this season, because there probably won’t be a 4th.

  • Sam

    I still don’t understand how the 18-49 rating is high for a kid’s cartoon.

  • Twist Of Fate

    This proves that 2.6 Sam & Cat scored was a fluke

  • Fake Me Out

    Too bad about Anger Management and Sheen. I find the show to be mildly entertaining and a nice way to kill 20 minutes. It is what it is, mindless escapist fare.

    It is also, IMHO, the last we will see of Sheen except for a few things here and there. No one in their right minds is going to risk giving him anything in the future since he has repeatedly shown he just can’t help himself … that and these ratings look less appealing than what I left in the toilet bowl this morning.

    ymmv

  • Son of The Undertaker

    Wilfred gets renewed, because it is very cheap to produce. Sad that it didn’t make the list.

  • Chris

    Why is everyone bashing on Sheen with the whole Selma Blair situation. Sheen is her boss, and she was complaining about him and probably talking behind his back. Any other job you would be fired as well.

    Plus he has a valid point, Sheen is pretty much in every scene of the show, so he has a ton more to memorize each week compared to Blair who has about two pages to memorize.

  • The End

    @Chris

    I don’t think it’s unreasonable if an actress speaks up when Sheen repeatedly arrives late, you know, questioning someones work ethic. I hardly think it deserves her receiving a ton of abuse from him.

    He basically told Lionsgate/FX that he wants her gone from the show or he won’t appear in any scenes with her.

    He’s not technically Selmas boss, but got her fired by putting the network/studio in a bad situation.

    The whole thing totally vindicates Chuck Lorre and CBS anyway, I’m sure Chuck Lorre saw it coming too.

  • UsedToLikeIt

    WOW — more people will actually read my post about Wilfred than actually watch the show!

    It’s not good.

    The pilot was great – but only because it took about 10 bits from the ozzie series and put ‘em all into one show. Since then it’s been one unfunny psychiatric slog.

  • Recollected

    Wilfred (10:00) – FX
    0.648 million viewers, #21; 0.393 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #18

    Wilfred (10:30) – FX
    0.607 million viewers, #22; 0.404 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #17

    The Show with Vinny (10:00) – MTV
    0.433 million viewers, #23; 0.210 million adults 18-49 (0.2 rating), #23

  • Devin

    Poor Wilfred. I love the show but with ratings like that I don’t expect them to renew it. Hopefully it grows next week.

  • Eric McInnis

    @Sam
    I still don’t understand how the 18-49 rating is high for a kid’s cartoon.

    A lot of adults like cartoons, children or not.

  • John

    Yikes Wilfred probably isn’t making it to season 4, too bad thought it was an amusing show

  • platypus Perry

    I have never heard of Sam & Cat but I must say for a Nickelodeon show targeted at young children,tweens,and assuming younger side of the teenage group, scoring a 0.6 and 3.162 Million Viewers is not bad at all.

    So why is it some commenters think it is doing horribly? Now I must admit I’m not too familiar with Nick Ratings(outside of SpongeBoB) but Isn’t over 3 mil and 0.6 good for this type of show and Nickelodeon considering the targeted childrens demo is scoring extremely high Numbers? Or is it doing horrible compared to Big Time Rush?

  • Andrea

    everybody got hit due to basketball. if game 7 didn’t happen then everything would be ok.

  • Nathan

    @platypus perry

    Sam & Cat airs regularly on Saturday nights. 2 weeks ago it premiered to 4.1 million viewers, sadly the week after that it dipped to 2.6 million viewers. Out of no where, this repeat scored 3 million viewers. Big Time Rush, which once was a hit, was killed by nickelodeon (in terms of ratings) due to their horrible promotion/scheduling last summer.

  • Jared

    So considering that Anger Management got ZERO push from its time on FOX what does FX do with it now?

  • tom

    FX will have a long and painful ride with Anger Management. I wonder if they are even halfway???

    Spongebob is really the staple of Nick. I remember back a few years ago, they would dominate 15 of 20 top cable shows of the week!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

  • The End

    @Jared

    I genuinely don’t know. I do know that it’ll likely get a complete run on FX regardless. What Sheen does afterwards is anyones guess, he won’t be on CBS anytime soon, the network has washed their hands of him.

  • Twist Of Fate

    SpongeBob’s ratings would be even higher if Nickelodeon treated it like a show & not a holy graile. I don’t why people on this site give Sam & Cat a hard time. The odd couple is supposed to be weird. As bad as Nick’s live-action is doing the Nicktoons look good. FOP, SBSP, TMNT, & Sanjay & Craig are doing pretty well
