    Holy s***… Full House is doing AMAZING.

  • Duane

    Love thy neighbor is up! I see a renewal coming soon. Any numbers for R & B Divas LA on TV ONE?

  • TV Addict

    The Bridge and The Challenge! Two totally different shows but I love them both.

  • ytr

    Glad that Futurama is up, last week was 0.4 and less than a million viewers, so it rebounded pretty good

  • Dennis

    Melissa and Joey & Baby Daddy are TANKING so HARD this season :D

    Good for The Bridge…Finally some quality television to watch this summer

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Sara Bibel

    @Duane scroll down on the tvbythenumbers home page. I just posted a R&B Divas release with the numbers.

  • Jose Arribas

    Necessary Roughness is on its last legs. Too bad because I love anything with John Stamos in it.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Wow @ SpongeBob

  • PurpleDrazi

    Great for The Bridge! I loved it.

  • Colin

    0.9 is a bad start for The bridge. With the usual decline it will be in dangerous territory very soon.

  • NickMe

    Is a Spongebob new????

  • r0ckmypants

    Looks like the week off hurt Million Dollar Listing NY. Shame, it’s my absolute favorite reality show on the air right now.

    How does that 0.9 for The Bridge compare to other recent FX premieres? I know it got slightly less total viewers than The Americans, but is that about the same demo?

  • Jared

    Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy are doing horrible compared to last season. Thank god ABCFamily has already renewed both series or I’d be worried.

  • Nathan

    Turtles has been solid as a rock in that 12pm hour. Spongebob was unusually high and that’s awesome for Full House.

  • rob60990

    Full House the best family sitcom ever. ABC needs to make more shows like this and less crap like Happy Endings and Super Fun Night.

  • Mathew

    What did baby daddy and mellisa and Joey get?

  • The Soul Fan

    They must not be very good, but I would like to see numbers for The Soul Man at least once. Just to know. Can anyone help?

  • Ron

    Was paranormal witnesses new?That’s terrible

  • RJ

    @TheEnd,
    Everybody loves Happy Endings? Hmm, funny because I remember it getting cancelled due to like four people watching the show. It’s kind of funny that a 20 year old repeat of Full House beat some of Happy Endings final episodes lololol.

  • Dan S

    That’s a good start for The Bridge. It’s numbers are on par with The Americans & I have high expectations it’ll hold up well. It’s a very intense show that is a good fit on FX. Good cast & much better than a lot of other shows, it’s a keeper
