    South Beach Tow does good for truTV, a million plus on every episode!

    Not a fan of MDL: NY nor LA but it’s a good ratings catch for Bravo and the ratings have gone up this season. I expect a renewal, obviously, in the future. Although, I do feel like LA lost its touch awhile back.

    TLC’s first scripted series, Surviving the In-Laws, did pretty good the first hour but I guess everyone got turned off and changed the channel after.

    Love Thy Neighbor didn’t even make the list this week! Despite that, I can see OWN bring it back for maybe a shorter second season.

  • Riley Cooper

    WOAH! Look at those Nick @ Nite ratings, 2 million viewers for shows that are 20-25 years old. Nick @ Nite kills on Wednesdays. We need a reboot for Full House and Friends made immediately.

    I really wish Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy made the lists, I wonder how they would do if they were on Nick & Nite instead. Maybe ABC Family should repeat Full House at 7pm. LOL!

    The Challenge: Rivals I’ve heard was good so with these ratings I’m definitely checking it out next week.

    Somebody post the Bellator ratings when you get them.

  • msupdate

    Wow The Challenge is doing so well. Moving back up to its pre-last year numbers. That’s fantastic.

  • Willow

    Franklin and Bash now bringing similar numbers to Suits. FandB came hard this season and don’t see a reason why it wouldn’t get renewed.

  • Marlene

    I’m really impressed on how good Necessary Roughness is, quality wise this season I love Callie Thorne and John Stamos its my guilty pleasure. I really hope its renenewed I think it has shown that this season is one of the most stable shows they have.

  • Jane Elliot

    @Marlene:
    Necessary Roughness is definitely better quality-wise this year and its ratings have gone up a bit from last year as well. Still, the ratings are on par with Graceland and Covert Affairs (i.e., at the bottom of the pack for USA) and it doesn’t have the buzz of either of those shows, so I think renewal might depend on whether Psych is really over and/or what pilots they’re looking at for next year.

  • r0ckmypants

    Million Dollar Listing: NY is my favorite Bravo show, so I’m really happy to see that it nearly doubled its numbers from last week for the finale. Hoping for a renewal announcement soon.

  • Ram510

    Looking at te press release it looks like Melissa & Joey got a .6/.7 (season high?) and Baby Daddy a .4/.5. Last night was probably the best episode of the season of M&J

  • Marlene

    @jane Elliot:
    That is true I would hope USA sees that they have a good pairing with Royal Pains and Necessary Roughness and keep it around. It is part of the bottom of the pack, but with Burn Notice ending and maybe psych as well they could keep it around plus I think this episode of NR did better in Total Viewers than Suits and Covert Affairs so its a good contender for renewal if only its demo was higher

  • Daniel

    Why is the Exes higher than Hot in Cleveland? Seems they have the same 18-49 and Hot wins in viewers.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    Daniel: Because Exes had around 30,000 more viewers 18-49 even though that comes out to a tie in 18-49 ratings points.

  • Christian

    The Challenge used to be one of my fave guilty pleasures but I think I’m finally over the show. I almost fell asleep through last night’s episode and every season has become so predictable with the same people running the game. It’s too bad this season is rating so much higher than last because this means MTV will keep bringing back Paula, Johnny et. al. til they’re on canes.

  • SMINC

    Anyone have the numbers for BBQ Crawl on Travel? I have never seen any Travel Channel shows listed here…

  • MTV Watcher

    Some of the people on The Challenge need to get a real damn job. You can’t be almost 35, still doing reality television, partying and having one night stands with your TV room mates. GROW UP.

  • iCarly

    Good for ‘Sam & Cat’ and ‘SpongeBob’ tops on Nickelodeon. Nick at Nite huge ratings… :) Go Nick!

  • Joe

    I laugh at these shows. They are so bad. It’s pathetic. Good thing I cancelled my cable.

  • BoSox Juan

    Considering The Bridge premiere gained 67% in 18-49 over 3 days & C3 is what matters most now with advertisers, it’s renewal is all but assured. This week’s ep drew nearly 900k 18-49 in it’s premiere which puts it’s total day in the demog well over 1 mil. That’s nearly identical to the Americans finale. It’s C3 18-49 is likely averaging over 1.0 as well.

    The Bridge is a mystery thriller centered around illegal immigration & it’s role in the drug trade from Juarez, MX to El Paso, TX.

  • JR35

    The Happily Divorced crew received word weeks ago that they’d be filming another season.

    I can’t believe the numbers for Honey Boo Boo- but, like other very ridiculous reality shows, there’s an audience.
