    I hope the bridge crashes and burns. I had high hopes for this series but the acting is horrible.

  • Mathew

    Mellisa and joy! Baby daddy?

  • Dennis

    Great for The Bridge…Steady as she goes :D

    Bates Motel would be above a 2.0 with DD as a lead in..

  • Damiker

    The Exes has had a great season, can’t wait for it to return in Dec. I don’t know if the Soul Man will be renewed, nice to see it chart tho.

  • rob60990

    Modern Dads, a show i havent seen a single ad for doing better than overpromoted Bates Motel.

  • Davide De Rea

    Aren’t those very bad ratings for the UFC? I tried working out what the first Fox Sports 1 one did from their annoyingly-bullshtty press release. I think it did a 1.38…

    1.38 to 0.4 is a huge drop. This one wasn’t as well promoted and didn’t have as strong a card, but that’s still a huge drop. How does this compare to the ratings UFC used to get on FX and FUEL?

  • JJ

    Umm Bates Motel has no lead in..take away DD and Modern Dads wouldn’t even be on the list.

  • Meanie

    MDLLA is doing relatively good in the ratings. It’s encore episode even made it back on the list.

    Um are the replacing The Soul Man with Cedric Comedy Stand Up cause this is the second time it appeared on the list instead of The Soul Man.

    Futurama did decent, haven’t got a chance to checkup on it. Well honestly haven’t really caught on any of Comedy Central animes. Sidenote you know what I would think Comedy Central a great channel in a few years. If they aquired Family Guy, The Boondocks, The Simpson, rerun Fururama, South Park & Pickleberry. If that happen I keep my cable on that station.

    Ya remember that show Celebrity Death Match Comedy Central show rerun it or produce new episodes seeing it was produce by MTV and they are own by the same company(Viacom). At least I can dream.

  • Meanie

    Oh sorry didn’t see The Soul Man on the list. Also sorry for the grammar errors. D@mn IPhone.

  • John A

    Nice to see Invistigation Discovery shows on the list. Really like those shows.

  • Uktvfan

    Hi Nick, do you have the Broadchurch number for last night? Thanks in advance!

  • JacobYates

    @rob
    Bates motel would be in the 2s if it had DD as a lead-in. You know why Modern Dads is even on the list? The DD Lead-in Effect (DDLIE). Just shut up. We get it. You don’t like the show and that’s fine. But to say that Bates Motel is performing poorly is simply absurd.

    You know why Bates Motel was heavily promoted? Because A&E had high hopes for the show so they promoted it heavily. It’s the network’s job to promote their shows you idiot, whether they promote them a little, or a lot.

    Do you think any great show would be where it is now without decent amount of promotion? You can’t over promote a show.

    While we’re on the subject, what exactly do you hate about the show?

  • DenverDean

    DD goes from 5.0 to 4.5 to 4.1. I wonder if the multiple airings are finally catching up to A&E. Not much urgency when it’s on 15 times a week in prime time. (Excludes 11 other showings between Midnight and 2 am). It’s not like TBBT, which I still think TBS is burning out, that has over 100 episodes to rotate.

  • Haji

    Melissa & Joey – 0.5
    Baby Daddy – 0.5

  • Dan

    Very good for The Bridge it should be renewed.

  • Mike

    Million Dollar Listings is a great show!

  • alexa

    Cheer perfection?

  • loveTV

    Scandal ratings on BET ???

  • Observer

    Ive seen a ton of Modern Dad commercials on A&E so Rob is talking out of his a** yet again.

  • CrystalFissure

    The acting in The Bridge is far from terrible. The main character has Autism and that’s a large plot point.

    I’m really loving that show.
