    Wow! Sullivan and son is killing it.

  • kb

    Wow Family Guy…

  • Mon

    Burn Notice and Graceland both got only 0.7. I don’t feel that bad now with Covert Affair’s 0.6 on a new timeslot.

  • JR

    I knew I was right about USA network. I honestly think the lead-in to ‘Burn Notice’ is causing it’s low ratings. It just hit it’s lowest summer rating ever + and the fourth lowest ratings ever. A repeat of ‘NCIS’ got 2 million viewers at 7 pm, if they would have aired an episode at 8pm, ‘Burn Notice’ would have gotten about 3.5 million. Instead it had ‘Summer Camp’, which dropped to 1.1 million. That’s ridiculous (a 900k drop).
    Big cable networks should just stick to scripted instead of trying to make money off of unscipted television. TNT’s “The Hero” just hit another low although the movie after it got more.
    Big cable networks should just leave unscipted fare to lower cable networks. It only makes since w/ these ratings.

  • Nathan

    Poor Big Time Rush…

  • Dee Em Styles

    Impact Wrestling recovered! Chris Sabin, the new World Champ, is ratings!

  • John A

    Sharknado did better than its first run. The buzz of last week probably helped it.

  • cody

    what is happening to USA Network?? holy crap!

  • cimmer

    I expected Sharknado to do better, there’s the social media kick that didn’t kick in the first time although I’m still not sure how the ‘it’s terrible, you’ve got to see it’ advertising will work out long run for Syfy. In the short term, yes, but there’s numbers are down from last year at this time and down even further from the year before that, if they’ve got a strategy it doesn’t appear to be working.

  • The milk man

    Swamp people is a monster! Wow
    Sullivan and son with a huge rise midway through the season. TBS can officially launch a sit com

  • Martin

    Glad for Sullivan And Son, much better in quality than Men At Work, imo.

    What do others think about Gracelands chances at renewal, yeah it’s under 2 million viewers but it’s one of their youngest skewing shows and, just look at the retention in the demo.

  • Cyrax86

    Surely you can’t blame the lead-in for a show in its 7th season. Burn Notice has simply run its course. Graceland will be renewed.

  • Matt

    Very odd for Burn Notice, lowest ratings this summer and a big dip from last week. What’s going on? Loved last night’s episode. And as for Graceland – last night’s episode was great! I was expecting higher ratings. But considering the Burn Notice situation, it could be said to be holding up *okay*, quite steady since the pilot episode anyway.

  • Mon

    Graceland is fine. Necessary Roughness was hitting as low as 0.4 or 0.5 last season but was still renewed.

  • Michael

    @JR

    Graceland was pulling weak numbers when burn notice was pulling 1.0 and higher…. the only other usa network show pulling numbers like that is suits.. so how could burn notice be the reason graceland isnt doing well

  • Matt

    @Michael

    I think @JR was saying Summer Camp is causing Burn Notice to drop in ratings. Graceland wasn’t even mentioned in that post.

  • NickMe

    A Repeat of Good Luck Charlie beat a new Big Time Rush!!!
    Predictions for next week:
    Big Time Rush (8:00-9:00): 2.0-2.9

    Sam & Cat (Tomorrow): 2.8-3.3
    Haunted Hathaway (Tomorrow): 2.5-2.9

    :)

  • JR

    @Michael, I was not referring to “Graceland”, I was referring to “Burn Notice”. Two weeks ago (and weeks before that), w/ “NCIS” as it’s lead-in, it would get mid 3 million viewers. “NCIS” always got 2 million viewers. Now that “Summer Camp” has replaced it, “Burn Notice” is down to under 3 million two weeks in a row because it can’t get that “NCIS” audience (which is a difference between 1 million people).

  • Kelly

    There’s truth to what JR was saying If people see that summer Camp isn’t their thing they will tune out and find something else and then they forget about their USA show they watch trust me I’ve done it also it’s not just that also USA’s ratings have dopped this summer for most shows there’s also way more shows on so it’s a competition thing as weel

  • Anna Bones Clarkwood

    Why the 1mil drop (2.8mil – 1.8mil) of 99% viewers outside 18-49 from Burn Notice to Graceland?

    Or was this a copy error, on someone’s part & one was higher or lower, a tad, demo wise?
