  • Mike

    Rivals will go back up, shark week is big

  • Cyrax86

    Poor Necessary Roughness. Possibly only two more episodes and it’s gone forever!

  • Dillan

    M&J in the title, but not on the list?

  • Dylan

    @Dillon

    M&J is in there, it’s the last 0.5 one.

  • taylor

    @dillian it is on the lost it got a 0.5
    and baby daddy got a 0.4

  • s0303

    @dillan…m&j was on the list, but it got 0.5….i don’t know why it was in the title though since it was nowhere near the best of the night…

  • Manny

    Funniest episode of Franklin&Bash last night! Too many moments to quote.

  • Michael

    Melissa and Joey could be performing worse, like The Vineyard (0.2)

  • Survivor Fan

    Happy that Hatfields & McCoys: White Lightning did worse than Top Shot normally does. I want a sixth season of Top Shot!

  • Ram510

    I’m surprised Melissa & Joey aren’t getting higher ratings since alot of people are saying the writing has been alot better this season.

    Sad that F&B is down I thought it was finally in the upswing

    The Challenge has been great!

  • John A

    Castle doing well for TNT. The Bridge is doing ok for FX.

  • ek

    The bridge is really steady that’s great

  • Dillan

    Oh yes it is, my bad, lol.

    I’m sad the show isn’t performing that well this season.

  • Trey Nicholas

    This episode of Rivals2 was actually better than last weeks

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    Strange how the Exes has overtaken Hot in Cleveland as the top TVland Sitcom in the demo but not in viewers. Good. I legitimately enjoy the Exes. Hot in Cleveland is okay

  • Rob3008

    Futurama skews crazy young, almost all its viewers are in the 18-49 bracket.

  • Karen C

    Was Perception on last night?

  • Nevid

    Next week Duck Dynasty will destroy everyone.

  • gg

    Melissa and Joey is doing fine for a sitcom. Its honestly not even ‘HILARIOUS LMAO funny’. Its just a cute comedy show. And it must be cheap to produce. Glad it will make the 100 mark.

  • Dennis

    The Bridge not lighting the sky on fire but doing well enough for renewal…thats all I care about :D

    Melissa and Joey is anemic
