    Devious Maids is good. Each episode has gotten better. I dont think the maid who is a singer works. Its very uninteresting. I am betting they end up getting rid of her bc she isnt really involved in the other stories and her employers arent involved in the others at all either.
    The cast is much to large so I am postive there will be some trimming and i hope its her and her storyline people

  • Andrew

    The Walking Dead marathon did well on its final day when more people were home to watch and the last five episodes beat the new episode of The Killing that followed the marathon. A lot of people were able to catch up The Walking Dead (myself included).

    Dexter did decent and Ray Donovan did alright. I wonder what Family Tree did, as it had a massive True Blood lead in and didn’t even crack the top 100. I know their shows are not compatible at all. HBO seems to pair random shows together, while Showtime is more thoughtful on its pairings in general as Dexter and Ray Donovan are somewhat compatible.

  • Kissan

    And I see True Blood is still winning the whole Sunday night, even beating BB even though they’re not on at the same time. Dexter very steady since it’s the final season and I don’t know why two million people are still watching that Kardashian trash. Very pleased that Devious Maids grew two tenths from DDD and now I think it has an audience. Does anybody know where the Monday final ratings and cable ratings are?

  • Miles R.

    Good news for True Blood. Last weeks episode was fantastic. Hopefully this is the start of an upward ratings and viewership trend!

  • xwiseguyx

    I never watched RHONJ until this season but I’d watch a show around Caroline’s family and their restaurant startup.. they are the only ones that have any class…

  • #bravod

    Caroline is certainly lacking class. She may be better this season, but go re watch season 4 and season 2. She was so desperate to tear Danielle Staub to pieces, and to alienate Teresa from her own family. She is a nasty, bitter woman. And her children are carbon copies of her. They are rude, mean, and think they’re above everyone else.

  • #bravod

    Caroline was mean to her own daughter last season as well, cursing at her and putting her down. Caroline is very miserable, and her sister in law, Jacqueline is clearly obsessed with Teresa, and has gone crazy. She is on the brink of insanity and has lost it. And she is using her own son as a storyline for a paycheck. Bravo Jacqueline, great parenting, awesome. The Manzo’s and lauritas are awful people.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Marsinvestigations1@gmail.com – In order to “hold at anything above .5″ The Killing would need to actually need to go above a .5… and it’s only done that once before falling the next week.

  • Lon

    Where’s Princesses Of Long Island?!

  • CAS

    I started watching Devious Maids and I do like it but really are all the rich that way? I mean most of the rich people in this are awful. I find it hard to believe none of them have any sort of feelings. The best one is the mother to Remi (who names their son Remi? ) and she is a little crazy but she seems at least like a decent person so far, but I have only watched the first 2 episodes. I just feel that just because they are rich and have hired help they can’t be all awful right? I also don’t want this to turn into PLL where it takes forever to find some answers because that poor kid is sitting in jail for a crime he may not have committed. There is my rant, on a ratings board nonetheless.

  • Remote Patrolled

    @CAS – the rich characters are getting nicer on the show – the Susan Lucci character and her son are nice people, the Grant Show character is a decent guy and the trophy wife also seems to have a good heart.

    @Jackson – agree on Carmen the singer. I sense she’s meant to be like Gabby on Desperate Housewives but Eva Longoria had better timing and material. That said she got kind of interesting towards the end of last week…

  • Ram510

    This past episode of Devious Maids was the best they’ve had, glad it starting to increase. I hope the show finds its groove soon cause it could be an ok little show.

    Ray Donovan was terrible Sunday! I almost have up all together but I’ll I give it another episode or 2. The should focus more on him and the clients versus the crazy family nonsense

    I dot watch Falling Skies but I hope it does well and if they could get the writing together I’d start watching but until then I’ll just root for it quietly

  • reallypeople

    Good job at TB rising and winning the night.

    Sucks that the Killing can’t seem to gain any traction. For those hoping for a renewal, the sad fact is that the repeat of True Blood, on HBO, tied it in the demo. Maybe you’ll get a Netflix gift… but the numbers in no way indicate a renewal to be a sure thing.

  • Juan

    What matters most to premium networks is unique adult viewers likely to keep/buy their service. It should be obvious then that F25-54 & F35-64 are the most important as they are the most likely demog to decide whether a home/residence subscribes. The 2nd to least in importance are adults under 25 because they typically lack the income to pay for the service themselves. The least important are kids under 18. The weekly cum avg is bolstered by the under 25 crowd that matter least. That’s also the demog most likely to pirate the shows which is why these networks aren’t concerned by that. They view piracy as a form of promotion amongst a demog more likely to contribute to video sales for the show.

    With a 2.8-9 for the night in 18-49, TB drew about 3.7m viewers in that demog & nearly 2m of them are female. That probably makes it the biggest female draw for the network outside of special events. That’s why I say TB is likely to buck the trend of HBO ending a series after 8 seasons. What will fill that void? The male dominated GoT? Not likely. True Blood will remain on HBO for as long the producers want it to.

  • Tony JJ

    Wow. Very impressed at Devious Maids. After an underwhelming debut ratings and my own opinion of an underwhelming premiere episode I thought it would continue to sink and be canceled. But it continues to rise. I hear a lot of good things about the show which is probably why ratings are rising, good word of mouth. I have the eps on my DVR so maybe ill catch up. But for me the premiere had too many characters like an earlier poster said. But it looks like its guaranteed a renewal.

    Killing will probably get renewed. Netflix deal alone I’m sure it’s profitable for AMC and FOX so I’m sure it will be renewed.

    @TheEnd.

    Spoilers aside what makes you think Falling Skies will jump to “walking dead” type numbers for the next couple of eps? A show in its third season and only at a 1.3 for its most recent episode I just don’t see it rising 4+ rating points within a couple of episodes.

  • The End

    That wasn’t me who posted that, It seems the faker is back again. Could an admin please delete his post.

  • Jazz

    Test post.

    Like Devious Maids.

  • The End

    @Tony JJ

    Just to inform, that wasn’t me you responded too. I have some kind of weird stalker on here now. An admin deleted his posts a few days ago when he last tried to copy me and banned him but he keeps coming back to hassle me for whatever reason.

  • Juan

    Falling Skies is not going to jump to TWD #’s. Popularity doesn’t work that way. It doesn’t matter what the show does at this point, some that tuned in for it’s network debut never came back. It’s been a slow attrition since. Some simply don’t feel the story is all that compelling any more. It’s already been renewed for another season but it’s any body’s guess after that.

    Relative to AMC’s other original scripted shows, “The Killing” is cheap. It’s likely to keep getting renewed until it falls out of the Top 100 25-54 completely.

  • Tony JJ

    @The End

    Ah! I understand. I do remember when you had that imposter a couple days ago! At least I know you aren’t delusional to think falling skies will jump up to 5.0-6.0 ratings within a couple weeks. Lol
