    “The Challenge is really good I don’t understand why the ratings are going down”

    it didn’t go down, it’s up a tenth from last week.

  • Jacob

    ABC Family has certainly upped the sex-centered episode themes on “Melissa and Joey” this season.

    No complaints, just think it contradicts the “Family” in “ABC Family”

    I thought last night’s episode was very funny.

  • Nikki

    Sad not to see Melissa and Joey on the list.. loved last nights episode. It was so very funny last night. Oh well at least they already renewed it for another season.

  • John A

    Syfy doing decent with its cheap reality programing.

  • redbirds

    Family Guy reruns win night.

  • iCarly

    Great for Nick at Nite!! :)) Go Nickelodeon!

  • s0303

    i’ve never seen honey boo boo, but considering how much press it gets, it should be getting better than a 0.9…

  • Fan

    I have no doubt Franklin & Bash will get renewed now, great numbers and I’m sure it will continue to gain. It’s my favorite show, definitely the best show of the summer.

  • sam

    Weak for top chef masters, unfortunate. good cast this year. I wish they would have aired a regular Top Chef season however

  • KK

    Well, it looks as if on Wednesdays, Duck Dynasty has the only shot at beating Family Guy or Big Bang Theory. Honey Boo Boo certainly couldn’t accomplish that.

  • Marlene

    I’m really happy with how well Necessary roughness is doing I really enjoy the dynamic with V3 and all the new characters and these numbers have risen alot from last season where NR seemed to hit 0.4-0.5 almost every week I hope it gets a renewal.

  • CCV

    @rob6whatever…..
    You say that like renewing The Americans was a bad thing.

  • memp

    Baby Daddy and Melissa & Joey are getting progressively better as series, it needs to start showing up in the ratings now.

    Full House is a powerhouse on Wednesdays, if ABC Family still has the rights to that show they need to put them on at 7pm like someone mentioned before.

  • Ram510

    I think Melissa & Joey was an excellent family episode teenagers have sex that’s a fact. I think the promotion of safe sex and to see the family talking about it and not just shoving the topic under the rug was good

  • Ram510

    Oh no Melissa & Joey are down to a .4 this week. And what happened to Baby Daddy?

    Is The Soul Man pretty much canceled

  • Martin

    @Jacob

    Not that it matters that much, but apparently they have to have the family in abc family, legally. It was a condition of when it was sold years ago apparently that any future owners had to keep the word family in it’s channel name

    Melissa and joey and baby daddy are killing it this season, creatively, unfortunately not ratings wise.

    The exes is also brilliant, kristin johnson is fantastic at physical comedy, it really is the networks most consistent performer, no matter where it’s put after, it never drops that much, hasn’t been far off it’s premiere numbers since it started, unlike the rest of the shows on the network. Hot in cleveland is also still funny.

    Why do fx shows premiere so big and then drop huge amount in 2nd ep and sort of stay steady enough from there, weird.

  • Ram510

    @ Martin

    That’s not just FX that’s how it is with most shows. They premiere big then drop off and (hopefully) kind of stabilize. That’s just how it goes most days

  • toons

    them’s good futurama numbers… been very steady… and the rerun from last week did well… pretty sure they are getting higher numbers this year then last summer… wish they hadn’t canceled it

  • Tony JJ

    @memp

    Yes ABC family still does have the rights to air full house. They air them 12-2pm Monday-Friday.

    They really need to think about putting full house at 7 or something else to give it a lead in clearly a rerun of the previously weeks episode doesn’t help the show out at all.
