    I don’t understand why Melissa & Joey charts and Baby Daddy doesn’t. Melissa & Joey is DREADFUL but Baby Daddy is really cute and entertaining! These charts are ridiculous to me anyways, who cares what ratings The Big Bang Theory re-runs get? It should be first-run episodes only. People who watch TVLand or ABC Family don’t get their ratings because the chart is cluttered with Big Bang, Castle and Duck Dynasty repeats. It’s time for a new system.

    Abc family has got to be regretting those early renewals for M&J and Baby Daddy. Both are performing terribly.

    @pll fan

    They are most likely disappointed with the ratings, but I doubt they are regretting their renewals. No way would they cancel both of them because they didn’t premiere a new comedy this summer. So they made the right thing by renewing them plus they are probably dirt cheap to produce. (I’m not sure how much Melissa and Joey get paid but they can’t get that much I imagine) and baby daddy has pretty “no names”, familiar faces, yes. But no names where they would come at a high price.

    I also don’t understand why ABC family aren’t repeating these comedies like crazy. Repeat some of these after Reba repeats a couple days a week. Comedies usually repeat the best and are more likely to gain an audience. They need to do a weekend marathon. Repeat my fake fiancé and episodes of Melissa and Joey and baby daddy all weekend long.

    “Abc family has got to be regretting those early renewals for M&J and Baby Daddy. Both are performing terribly.”

    Besides that .3 M&J got for its 2nd episode, the show isn’t doing terrible for an ABCF comedy pulling mostly .5s. BD however, for a show in its 2nd season and use to almost always grow from M&J last year is doing poorly.

  • Tony JJ

    Wow baby daddy isn’t recovering. I wonder what ABC fam will do? Will they bring them back in the winter to make a smaller gap between seasons. But I can’t see them airing these on Wednesdays against ABC’s family friendly comedy block.

  • mike

    Couples therapy rating please. I’m loving this season

    @Mike: Couples Therapy averaged 611,000 viewers and a 0.3 A18-49 rtg.

    I agree, That is how I started watching Friends back in the day.

  • JR35

    Those Nanny airings on Nick at Night rate pretty well.

  • panda22

    A well written and funny episode last night, Ryder’s new GF is very cute + she’s got a major gig coming up as the daughter to Anna Darris’ character on Chuck Lorre’s Mom.

    lots of exposure there, still….she’ll NEVEr beat the awesome Rachel G. fox! :D

    M&J numbers while not great in total viewers does OK in demo, its on par with last season. Its Baby Daddy that is seeong a major slump!

  • Hillbilly

    Battle of the exes & sexes. Pretty boy John Stamos divorced sexy Rebecca Romijn (she needs to eat some hotdogs & cake) and now both have shows on cable TV. Stamos on USA, Necessary Roughness & Rebecca on TNT, King & Maxwell. Stamos joined the cast of Necessary Roughness while Rebecca started a new show King & Maxwell. Their on the two top ad supported cable networks, USA number 1 & TNT number 2. King & Maxwell wins the P2+ viewers, while Necessary Roughness is winning the demo. So will both shows be renewed? Who will win the overall demo at seasons end?

    King & Maxwell 2.8 0.4
    King & Maxwell 2740 0.4
    King & Maxwell 3523 0.6

    Necessary Roughness 2610 0.6
    Necessary Roughness 2.51 0.7
    Necessary Roughness 2654 0.7

    AppleStinx told me the blue ladies (Sara & Amanda) are pulling for Stamos to crush Rebecca.

  • redsfan

    I love the Exes on TvLand. It’s one of the funniest shows I have seen in a while. Soul Man is also very good.

  • Glue

    Why are people saying that Melissa and Joey is a flop this season when it’s getting the same demo as last season and it’s been making the list lately. It’s Baby Daddy that they should be worried about now.

  • Chris

    Anyone have the numbers for MTV Rivals? I know it was just the preview but curious to see how it did.

  • Flop, or my mom will shoot!

    Mythbusters needs to end after this season. It has run it’s course and the ratings reflect that. I’ve enjoyed this show for several seasons, but now it’s just a chore to get through an episode. There’s too much theatrics, not enough science, and they no longer focus on myths anyone cares about. Blah.

  • The End

    Utterly brilliant for Paranormal Witness, beating out Defiance this week in the 18-49 too. Nice to see people are starting to see that this show is actually entertaining, just don’t take the stories seriously and you’l have a fairly enjoyable hour of viewing.

  • SoulFan

    So there’s just no way to find ratings for shows like the The Soul Man, and plenty of others, that did not make the list?

  • Kevin

    Fight Master on Spike improved in it’s 2nd episode to a 5.45 from last weeks 4.32 & the live Bellator fights that led in were a 4.75.

    I am also curious how MTV’s the Challenge preview did if anyone has those numbers.
