  • AJ

    Good Luck Charlie did pretty well :)

  • JAA

    The Killing is UP :)

  • Rabbit

    Looks like Adult Swim’s audience loves Bob’s Burgers, based off the cable premiere.

  • Mike

    Only 10 mil watched the dude walk across the Grand Canyon? Should have been closer to 20 mil. It was live across all time zones.

  • Survivor Fan

    Wow, why did Nik Wallenda do better on Discovery than he did on ABC?

  • Mon

    Whoa The Killing! Looks like being up against the NBA Finals hurt it a lot. I hope it grows even more.

  • sam

    good for true blood got in the list twise

  • Dennis

    Falling skies only up a tenth….
    hmm Season 4 will probably be its last (it’s still 100% getting renewed if it holds above a 1)

    Good for the Killing, I suppose…still dead

    Devious Maids DOA

  • John A

    Drop Dead Diva did decent. To think Lifetime was going to cancel it. 0.9 decent for Mad Men Finale.

  • Bryce Novarro

    That’s not bad for Devious Maids. I remember last year The Client List actually rose from its premiere numbers. It might not be the best numbers but it is most certainly not DOA.

  • Seth

    Not bad for Break. Still holding up well even though it is down from when Game of Thrones aired before it.

  • John A

    Whats renewel numbers on Lifetime? Anything above at least 0.6?

  • Robert

    Have to disagree with you Dennis. Season 2 episode 4-6 had 1.2 and just 3.3 mil viewers and was up to 1.4 and 3.8 by the finale and was renewed. Right now season 3 is at 3.5 mil viewers and 1.1, I expect it to recover to 1.2-1.3 by the next 2 episodes putting it on par with season 2 but up in total viewers. Season 4 is guaranteed as you said but I think 1 more beyond that is likely given its huge international showing and success.

  • Eric Robinson

    THE KILLING ROSE! :D

  • Dennis

    I don’t really care but I’m just gonna point out THE KILLING hit a season high last night….Highest demo number since episode 5 of SEASON 2…

  • Chris verigado

    @ John A renewal numbers for lifetime are generally above a .45 for Sunday weekly they look for above .61 trutv TNT tbs etc generally want .7 or higher which is absurd hence the constant turnaround of shows

  • Sam

    Hey Nick, can you post the numbers for the new Austin & Ally please?

  • Simon

    BIG jump for The Killing! If these numbers hold we could very well see a 4th season.

    And also Falling Skies rose too!

  • Red Jane

    Hey the Killing gained 23% in total viewers.. still at 0.6 but perhaps it continues to recover? I know more hopeful than anything else but I just like the show…

    True Blood lost 400K viewers from the premiere similar loss to what happened in Season 5… wonder if 4MM viewers is what the avge will be this season vs. 4.5MM last one…

  • Jose Arribas

    Drop Dead Diva is my guilty summer pleasure. The writing is atrocious but the acting is actually really good given the material. I don’t even really care what the case of the week is as long as I can get my Brooke Elliott fix for an hour.
