    Look for the National Inquirer or Star to have a front page story in a month about Jeremiah & Michele Beadle hooking up. She was flirting with Jeremiah big time. ;)

  • juan

    @Hector
    who that hispanic people don’t like it. I really enjoy it and I’m peruvian, and its doing pretty well I think

  • Mike

    I love watching Ray Donovan on Showtime followed by Copper on BBC America (or vise versa)-The best two hours on tv there!

  • Mike

    Juan-Donavan is a brand new show.While the other shows that followed Dexter
    took years to build an audience.

  • Coffee Steve

    Need more than 10 shows a season, seems like t just started now only 3 shows left?

  • Marsinvestigations1@gmail.com

    The Killing is stable but I don’t like those .4s. I’d be way happier with a .5 or .6…

  • Nick

    Per the Futon Critic
    Sam & Cat: 3.378 million viewers, 0.5 rating
    The Haunted Hathaways: 3.349 million viewers, 0.6 rating
    Shake It Up: 3.449 million viewers, 0.5 rating
    Austin & Ally: 3.226 million viewers, 0.4 rating
    Dog With a Blog: 3.175 million viewers, 0.4 rating
    Good Luck Charlie: 2.857 million viewers, 0.4 rating

    La La’s Full Court Life (10:00) – VH1
    0.999 million viewers, #30; 0.653 million adults 18-49 (0.5 rating), #19

    Hollywood Exes (9:00) – VH1
    0.895 million viewers, #32; 0.551 million adults 18-49 (0.4 rating), #23

    Princesses: Long Island (9:00) – Bravo
    0.862 million viewers, #33; 0.462 million adults 18-49 (0.4 rating), #27

    The Wanted Life (10:00, 60 Minutes) – E!
    0.586 million viewers, #35; 0.393 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #32

    I doubt E! will renew The Wanted Life, good. Hollywood Exes, well, no one really new about the time slot change. La La might be loosing some steam on her show but that’s still pretty good. Princesses, they’re falling as they should.

    @Juan

    Again, demo does not matter to a channel that does not air commercials. Hbo has millions of subscribers over the age of 50 and they program shows for them too.

    The killing is doing slightly worse than last year, and it’s renewal will depend entirely on Netflix throwing money at it.

  • Justin

    DISNEY CHANNEL RATINGS:
    7:30 Good Luck Charlie = 2.857M
    8:00 Dog With A Blog = 3.175M
    8:30 Austin & Ally = 3.226M
    9:00 Shake It Up = 3.449M

  • GG

    There’s no way of True Blood ever dying out. I love it. Its on fire for 6 years now and nothing else beats it.

    It should go for 10 seasons and end at episode 100.

  • TOM

    Nothing about Copper numbers?

  • TAG

    Wow, Shake It Up beating all the other tween shows. And actually the #2 most watched cable show on Sunday night behind True Blood.

  • Juan

    Sam, you are being stupid again.

    HBO doesn’t care about kids & teens watching True Blood because the show is not likely to be airing when they are old enough to afford HBO on their own. True Blood is not produced for the over 50 crowd or senior citizens. It’s produced for 18-49 & 25-54 demogs. That’s the demog HBO cares most about because it represents the VAST majority of their subs.

    Mike, you have a valid point. Donovan needs to be compared with S1 of shows that followed Dexter. You’ll have to tell me what those are.

  • Miles R.

    Great news about True Blood. The last few episodes have been fantastic. Very happy about the seventh season renewal as well. Hoping for twelve episodes next year!

  • Laol

    Hell naw Ted made the list, FX can’t wait to get that movie in 2015.

    Devious Maids is surprisingly doing well.

    Sam & Cat is a monster repeater.

  • Laol

    Looks like Shake It Up has taken over as Disney’s number one comedy with Austin & Ally and Dog with a Blog close behind.

    Should be interesting to see if Girl Meets World rates better than all of them. ABC is so stupid not to pick that show up.

  • betty

    devious maids is an excellent show.should be renewed soon.
    i wish mistresses was on cable as well.it seems like abc isnt bringing back mistresses.both shows are excellent.i am highly addicted.

  • SD

    Still no sign from Nick?

  • samurai99

    Juan, they may not care about kids, but they care about adults over 50, who despite your continued nonsense are a huge party of hbo’s subscriber base. Quit pretending demo matters to a channel that doesn’t sell ads.
