  • John A

    Is this the first time H5O has aired on TNT? If so than thats terrible.

  • Mike

    Terrible numbers for Hawaii 50 . If it gets a 0.2 in the first airing, imagine the numbers after a few more airings..
    I think Castle gets a 0.3 /0.4 in TNT, and they are only paying $800.000 per episode. This maybe good news for Castle, TNT may want to buy more Castle instead of H50.

  • jada

    hope this mean hawaii five-o gets cancelled. chapter three was failure and if no money from tnt maybe cbs will drop it like it deserve.

  • CBSviewer

    @ John A.

    Yes ! Poor Hawaii Five-0.

  • TVMAN

    Isn’t Anger Mangement doing quite well for a FX comedy??

  • Bear

    Wifred’s ratings are so low that Jason Gann won’t be able to get his green card renewed.

  • Kyle B

    What? Without a Sharknado in the mix, the Syfy Thursday night disaster flick didn’t crack the top 100??

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Sara Bibel

    @Rabbit

    Thanks! I couldn’t resist the opportunity to post something so creepy (and probably as fake as a Sharknado)

  • Team Graceland

    last night’s episode of Graceland was AMAZING! Left me on the edge of my seat the whole night! Can’t wait for next week’s episode and really hoping for a second season!

  • Kevin

    Graceland is such a great series. It’s holding rock steady, and it gives hope for a second season.

  • Degrassian

    I’m surprised that Degrassi didn’t rank… its been a lot more popular this season… Maybe next week…

  • John A

    Castle is getting 0.5 these days on TNT. People were calling that a diaster for TNT lol

  • tom

    @TVMAN

    Anger Management’s numbers are between mediocre to disappointing. Sure, it is settling to 0.4 every week now, but when you have a large number of episodes orders to complete, it is concerning.

    btw, that really is an eye-catching photo.

  • Oliver

    Yikes at Hawaii Five-0. They paid a fortune for it too, in one of the biggest syndication deals ever. TNT’s problems continue.

  • TVMAN

    @Tom. But if other FX comedies can’t even brake the top 100, isn’t it considered a success in FX standards?

  • Jerk

    I would consider Anger Management somewhat a success at this point as its their top comedy right now and its been real reliable. With the 90-100 episodes already in the can, ratings probably don’t even matter too much especially for Lionsgate. FX probably would like a higher number but it is what it is.

    People clearly don’t know how to read the ratings Hawaii Five-0′s numbers aren’t that bad. Castle started off run too until TNT started marathoning the show in the fall and it started becoming a beast for them. We’ll have to see if 5-0 does the same, its still over a million viewers. I don’t pay attention to the outdated 18-49 demo system that needs to be replaced anyways especially for repeats when this its on a 25-54 network.

    Sullivan & Son is the real deal as it didn’t slow up too much opposite of football.

    TNA looked to be affected by football though but with the Hardcore Justice PPV next week I’m expecting numbers to go back up.

  • Jordan

    Wilfred (10:00) – FX
    0.462 million viewers, #24; 0.318 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #22

  • Wombat

    Jordan, when you say #24 and #22, do you mean for the night, or in its time slot?

  • Olka

    I love this shark photo ;)
    Hahah.

  • June

    OOPS ! A 0.2 for Hawaii 50. Wonder if TNT can dump this stinker.
