    RHOC is doing well considering its airing at 8, which was competing with Love and Hip Hop and is now still competing with basketball wives!

    Below Deck is doing amazing for bravo!

    RHOM is doing really well, it’s up from last week and I think there were only 2 episodes last season above that amount!

  • NFL saves TW customers

    MTV should start programming a whole bunch of scripted dramas like Teen Wolf they could really turn a corner as a network going in that direction and get out of the trashy reality direction that they’ve been in the past 10 years.

  • Nathan

    Sam & Cat and Victorious continue to do well in repeats.

  • Parker

    Below Deck did slightly better than RHOM. That’s an achievement on its part!
    I don’t think RHOM is or will get fully embraced by viewers like the other cities do. It’s still a good enough number, but the real testament will come when there is no RHOC or Tamras wedding special.

    Also, I’m thinking RHOBH which has aired Mondays will air it’s new season on Thursdays, where it premiered originally. And RHONY will take over Mondays in January once RHOM finishes? Or RHOM could be moved back to Thursdays once RHOBH returns.

  • Christina

    After being off the air for 13+ months.. go Basketball Wives!

  • Tiff

    So happy about Teen Wolf ratings!!! All of you saying this season wasn’t good are crazy. I agree there were too many new characters for sure. But action, suspense, humor, emotional and sex-wise, this season was the best (the first half that is). Seriously, Teen Wolf deserves an Emmy for “Motel California”, especially Dylan O’Brien for his performance. Had me crying.

  • Michael

    is nbc’s show siberia a miniseries? if not what are its chances of being renewed for next summer?

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Great job for nickelodeon!

    Anybody saw monday night raw? Poor daniel bryan

  • Mariana

    Switched at Birth Did great ! Pairing it and The Fosters will hopefully be a bigger hit when it comes back in January !

  • sam

    What was South Park a new episode?

  • Ram510

    @ Tiff

    I agree “Motel California” was by far the best of season 3A. But I still think this season was overstuffed with too many new character and storylines that weren’t that great and not enough of the core group who already have chemistry (Scott, Styles, Derek, Isac). And some of the mythology seemed a little all over the place at times. Still a very solid season that I enjoyed quite a bit, just missed some of the lighthearted interactions with the core cast that they had in pervious seasons

  • Beet

    Wow, 2 repeats of Spongebob got 0.8, Haha It’s better than every new episode of any show on nickelodeon

  • Ronnie

    TEEN WOLF!!!! I agree that the characters interactions that we loved from previous seasons weren’t as strong, but I still think this was the best so far. It was suspensful and it had a darker feel to it. It was just awesome.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Dang, that SUMMER CAMP on USA is really doing well. Why do they run it so late? I caught a re-run over the weekend once and liked it, but why run new episodes at midnight. ???

  • Brandy

    Good for Switchd at Birth

  • Tina

    Again, in total viewers, Major Crimes wins the night. It may not get the higher demo rating, but it doesn’t seem to appeal to that younger demographic anyway, which really is too bad because it’s an awesome show! It has great crime stories mixed with humor and a teenage character, Graham Patrick Martin who is an INCREDIBLE actor! (from Two And A Half Men)
    But that’s OK, we in the slightly older demo are loving this show, as the total viewers attest to!!!!!
