  • Twist Of Fate

    Wait a second….don’t tell me…Rabbids Invasion did well.?

  • Twist Of Fate

    And was GLC new.?? If so Ouch

  • Dillan

    Devious Maids was amazing on Sunday! Very glad ratings are doing well.

    I thought RHONJ would have risen considering all the media coverage Teresa’s legal stuff is getting.

    Good for the Kardashians and impressive that Total Divas rose from its premiere.

  • Noel

    I am worried for Newsroom, its becoming a much better show this season.

  • John A

    Devious Maids only down a tenth. Should be renewed soon.

  • Nathan

    Damn lord. Sam & Cat remained STEADY AS A ROCK during those repeats. Rabbids repeated well. Crossing my fingers and hoping S&C did well this week.

  • Bill

    This is the first time Rabbids Invasion is on the list!!!!!!!

  • sac

    Falling Skies did not do well for a season finale.

  • Dennis

    @Noel don’t be worried….HBO have already said it will be back during the TCA panel for HBO, not an official renewal but it will be.

    Poor enough for the Falling Skies finale…the award for the least memorable season of television goes to season 3.

    With the increase for 10 to 12 episodes for season 4 I bet it will be the last.

    The killing deserves another season, and all signs point to it being renewed

  • Dennis

    Also those ratings for the Killing finale are almost identical to what the season 2 finale (1.45) got last year.

  • Hubert R.

    Showtime blackout didn’t affect Dexter too much, I thought it would because probably many TW customers have picked Sho only for that show.

  • Alex

    @John A, Devious Maids was already renewed!

  • Birdsht

    The Newsroom is losing me. I am struggling to give a flying what happens to any of these characters. This show just isn’t very good. I’m still watching but its groundhogs day every episode, the same crap. Jeff Danials lights up in his office, what a maverick…

  • rob60990

    Good for Devious Maids. It has not been renewed yet.

  • John A

    I dont watch Falling Skies but a 1.2 is great for TNT. Talk of its demise next year is nonsense.

  • Dennis

    @John A

    Falling Skies hit a series low (twice) this season with just 1.0 in the demo.
    Still, not to bad for TNT…but its pretty obvious that it has a bigger budget then all their procedural… plus the quality has been in the toilet for every episode this season, so i’m not surprised viewers are down from last year.

    The fact that the episode order has gone up to 12 instead of the usual 10 could just be a hint that they will be wrapping it up

  • Samuel

    Very good for Devious Maids. I’ve not been fond of the show until last nights episode. Things really kicked up a notch.

    Very consistent for Drop Dead Diva too. With the cost saving measure taken to produce this season and ratings pretty much even with its last two seasons, it should be renewed if this season wasn’t already intended to be its last.

  • John A

    Well TNT would announce its ending surely. And isnt it No.1 on TNT? I mean look at Dallas Perception and others struggle to get 0.7 every week. I just think it would have to drop to 0.7 to be in any danger.

  • Daniel

    @Birdsht I completely agree, last season The Newsroom was a lot better I thought.

  • Robert

    @Dennis you are incorrect in that assumption, John is right. Falling Skies is #1 for TNT and you are limiting your view to the US ratings only. Falling Skies airs all over the world and has set records this season in several countries. These numbers are very strong for TNT. 3.7 mil this week is a high number for the season. The 1.2 is due to the viewership skewing a bit older than last season but the total viewership is up. Moving to 12 episodes was due to a budget increase they received after getting 5.5 mil viewers in LIVE + 3 on each episode.

    For TNT standards its got 2-3 more seasons. If this were on network cable like ABC or NBC yea it would have been gone already.
