  • Alan

    Honey Boo Boo still amazing ratings, poor Bridge!

  • Michael

    Melissa and Joey is performing poorly this season. Such a shame, the show is actually pretty funny!

  • KMS53

    Well, Necessary Roughness got back the viewers it lost even if it didn’t gain in the demo. I know, not important, but still I’ll take my hope where I can get it.

  • Ike

    @John A., the pilot wasn’t awful at all, it was very good, but the lead character is autistic. Diane Kruger’s performance is very off-putting and bizarre. I guess it’s realistic but I’m not sure. Another problem is that it’s a bit slow-moving. Those are the reasons why I’m not surprised that the numbers collapsed this week, but the show is otherwise excellent.

    @Laurence, not just old but freakin’ ANCIENT.

  • John

    Ouch at The Bridge. Honey Boo Boo did worse than I thought it would. Pretty good start for Deal With It.

  • cara

    @JoshuaCanada just barely. all of there other shows are holding above a 0.5 but the Americans was renewed and the ratings were i think between a 0.6-0.7. so maybe it will manage to slide by, giving that it maintains itself at a 0.5, though if it goes lower, unless it brings in the awards, its gone.

  • Finta

    The Exes is doing awesome this season. At least judging on it’s past ratings and the network it’s on.

  • Damiker

    Yes (the exes) charted again, I want a 4th season. Best show on tvland!!!

  • Justice 47

    ESPYs are a joke just like WWE Television these days. Based on its ratings compared to the other big awards shows, nobody cares about this one.

    Thank God those two ABC Family comedies went up, I’ve really been enjoying Baby Daddy this season. Tahj Mowry’s character Tucker is a hoot! Best comedy character I’ve seen in a while on a sitcom.

    ABC Family has done a lot better at promoting the shows and I like their patience with them as well, part of the problem is they need two other comedies around them as multi-cams always work better in blocks.

    Full House is a monster for Nick @ Nite lets get that reboot made ABC!

  • Son of The Undertaker

    What were the ratings for Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy???

  • rob60990

    Melissa & Joey & Baby Daddy both got 0.5s in A18-49. ABCF doesn’t mention the total viewers for M&J but Baby Daddy got 1.02 million. Their press release which this site posted has other demographics.

  • DonJ1973

    As Ike said, some people thought the Pilot was slow and didn’t get that Diane Kruger was playing an autistic character. I read some comments that people thought her performance was terrible/off putting, but didn’t get she was in character.

    I liked the Pilot even though it was sort of slow.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Merp – I will never understand the Roble renewal, especially over Pregnant in Heels and Work of Art.

  • Dave

    The Exes has been renewed for another season good news.

  • sg

    diane kruger is a poor actress for her character in the bridge.

    furthemore the whole show is a terrible rip-off. fx should just air the original with subtitles.

  • Dawn

    Franklin & Bash is the best show of the Summer.

  • The Soul Fan

    Anybody have numbers for The Soul Man?

  • BigShirl_Whats_Happenin

    Go Honey Boo Boo!

  • Mike

    @dave, The Exes is not a new season renewal, just a 10 extra episodes order for the current season.

  • Tony JJ

    @justice 47

    Yeah I am surprised abc or abc family isn’t trying a full house reboot.
