    I love TV Land Show The Exes what great cast and chemistry they have together.

    Surprised Supernatural Repeats didn’t make the list. It was nice to see it hit over a million viewers and I noticed it had a 0.5 once or twice too. Mainly it hits 0.4 or .3 but still solid.

  • ytr

    Good for Futurama, Even a repeat got 0.6, nice. I hope it’s not going to be certainly over after season 7.

  • Damiker

    I’m glad The Exes are doing better this season, although they should promote the show more.

  • CS’ Revenge

    Just glad M&J and Baby Daddy showed up in the list but both shows are getting to 100 episodes so ratings probably don’t even matter that much just like with Anger Management. Hopefully they get on a new night that works for them next season. ABCF should’ve brought in two new comedies to go with M&J and Baby Daddy. They gotta remember that multi-cams work better in blocks. It might’ve helped also if ABCF would’ve gotten Girl Meets World instead of Disney Channel.

    Full House and Friends are repeat beasts!

  • Steve

    I like all the Tv Land shows. They should promote all the shows more. I like to see The Soul Man doing a lot better in the ratings. They should have his father on the show more often. This season he was not on any episodes. I wonder why?

  • Wallaby2012

    Bob the Shark and Blorb the alien shark were the best, especially dunking for seals. What a hoot.

  • Judy912

    CASTLE is doing fantastically on the TNT network. Count me as one who never misses an episode. Can’t believe I let this series pass me by for 4 years before I caught on the TNT network. Now I am a avid watcher of the series whether it’s on the ABC network or the TNT network. WAY TO GO CASTLE!!

  • TV Viewer

    @YTR

    I agree with that statement. Futurama is doing very well and I also hope it gets another chance for renewal. Even if it’s direct to DVD video releases as it was before it was renewed by Comedy Central. Or a once every few months cable TV special.

  • Amy

    Does anyone know why FX hasn’t renewed The Bridge yet? The show is getting basically identical ratings to The Americans, and that show was renewed after the 4th episode.

    Plus, The Bridge is setting records in terms of the Time Shifted Viewing.

    I mean, I would assume The Bridge is a lock for season 2, right? Otherwise, why was The Americans renewed with the same ratings?

  • Haji

    Kinda surprised Baby Daddy is even still on the air. 0.4 is pretty damn bad LOL. Same for Melissa & Joey unfortunately…both shows are doing horrible right now!
