    @qw

    I’m not denying that Melissa & Joey is down from last year but its “flopping” or “bombing” like some of these random people keep saying. As you have posted it had virtually the same amount of .7-.6 as it did .5’s and this season it’s had mostly .5’s (and does the .3 from airing at a last minute and unusual 930 really count). This season it’s had mostly .5’s as well so it’s not too far from last year

    @rob60990

    All day?? BAHAHA

    2 comments = all day

    Okaaaaayy

  • Amanda

    Franklin and Bash is steady and holding its own. Hope its renewed.

  • BJH

    The Exes ratings/demo? Thanks.

  • Charmed

    At least Melissa & Joey still has another 49 episodes left!

  • Charmed

    *48 episodes

  • brandojames

    I think that F & B’s numbers should be better to get a better chance at renewal. But I think being a Sony show and having lots of ad placement which it has had this season would give it a better chance at renewal than most. I know this season they have cut down costs with some of the lesser billed stars (Kumail) not showing up in some of the episodes. But they can only cut the budget so much. But I do have faith it will return. I do wish the numbers were better though.

  • rob60990

    “according to a magazine article a couple years ago (in People or EW or US Weekly) about PLL season two, 55% of its viewers are over 18.Further, why insult someone over what they watch?People watch they like& theres nothing wrong with that.You dont like or watch it, fine, but dont insult people”

    Thank you Brandy.

    “Do you sit in your parents’ basement all day posting Ezria gifs on tumblr and brushing the hair of your Mary-Kate and Ashley dolls?”

    Maybe.

    “You’re a 23-year-old man.. grow a pair and act like it!”

    Coming from someone whose only post in this thread is an insult.

    “I actually liked posting here, certainly I have done for years. But I’ll be taking a break for a few months due to being busy anyway. Thanks for the support but it’s not worth bothering about anymore.”

    That’s sad. You’re one of few posters I actually like. I’m kinda thinking of doing the same. I don’t have time to be insulted by various people here just because of what I like to watch and the mods don’t seem to do much about this. This site was actually better run when it was just Bill & Robert. No offense to the 2 women here. You both do a good job posting the ratings.

    The Exes: .3/886,000
    Melissa & Joey: .4/807,000
    Baby Daddy: .3/714,000

  • Rachel

    Abysmal ratings for M&J and Baby Daddy.

  • pll fan

    m&j and baby daddy ratings are sad. no matter how anyone tries to spin it, both shows are doing horrible.

  • Josh

    the bridge was Fantastic!

  • Jacob

    the bridge sucked

  • s0303

    full house was such a bad show…tried to be way too cutesy for my taste…gag….

  • Andrew

    I never really liked Full House, the only part of the show I liked was when then showed the rollercoaster in the starting. Was that Magic Mountain or Cedar Point?

    The Bridge did decent for Summer. I have it on my DVR but I haven’t watched it yet. The encore of The Bridge at 11:30 got 0.4 which is good. Combined that’s a 1.3 for The Bridge on Wednesday night, which beats some network Summer premieres.

  • Tony JJ

    I honestly cannot believe how bad Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy are doing. They did so good last summer. Baby Daddy was actually growing from Melissa and Joey last summer. Maybe the long hiatus? Does ABC family dare bring them back in the winter? But Wednesdays would be a bad choice against ABC’s family comedy line up.

    But thankfully they both have been renewed and hopefully they will rebound soon or next season.

  • david

    really good for full house on NAN but not good for M and J and Baby Daddy on abc family
