  • Finta

    Wow The Exes and Hot in Cleveland are like neck and neck!

  • Jacob

    Disney must be happy with the duck dynasty ratings, they basically own half of it

  • janette

    I forgot Disney owns half of A+E, so Disney must get some cash from Duck right?

  • Matt

    The exes is actually really funny

  • Cyrax86

    USA numbers once again embarrassing. They can’t renew everything and Graceland is doing decent compared to these two so unfortunately Necessary Roughness will be cancelled…

  • Tom

    Hot in Cleveland still somewhat decent considering that the episode had already been online for more than a week.

  • Mike

    The Exes is a really great show. I’m happy it’s at least placing in the top 100.

  • rob60990

    Even Modern Dads premiered better than Bates Motel.

    Both Cedric Stand Up & The Exes beat Hot in Cleveland.

  • Uktvfan

    Nick, do you have the ratings for Broadchurch last night on BBC America? Thanks in advance!

  • Ron

    But the problem is Rob,Bates Motel did not have a huge lead in like Modern Dads.Horrible Retention from Modern Dads

  • Dennis

    ROFL … ROb just give it up…you come across more pathetic every week when you try to bash Bates Motel…

    Its a major hit and you saying its not isn’t going to change that.

  • taylor

    Good that BD and m&j both tied at 0.5

  • CS’ Revenge

    The Exes has really grown its audience this season, watch out for this show.

    Good week for Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy in their respective demos. Viewership needs to climb up a bit more though.

    Those Full House and Friends numbers on Wednesdays for Nick @ Nite really amaze me. They touch 2 million viewers every time.

  • kennya

    Wow Baby Daddy at 0.5?
    Isn’t it a Season High?
    I love these Wednesday Summer comedys! Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, Hot in Cleveland and The Exey are better than modt of the Comedys during Tv Season!

  • DenverDean

    Won’t be long before A&E replaces MD with DD(R).

  • JacobYates

    @rob
    Yeah, but Modern Dads had the premium post Duck Dynasty slot. If Bates Motel had that slot it would have premiered in the 2s. Just stop it. You’re embarrassing yourself.

  • John A

    I think calling Bates Motel a major hit is exaggerating. It has good ratings but its no Duck Dynasty.

  • Haji

    Baby Daddy did a little better this week than last week getting a 0.5, but the show is still skating on thin ice.

  • Dennis

    @John A

    Its A&E’s Number 1 drama in the history of the channel….so I think calling it a major hit is spot on

  • Mariana

    Poor Necessary Roughness I loved last nights episode the cast is amazing . Would be a shame if they cancelled it .
