  • Jenny

    Good for Melissa and Joey & Baby Daddy

  • Haji

    Baby Daddy did really well in ratings last night, unfortunately I didn’t like last night’s summer finale…but I guess I’m in the minority. I hope season 3 is much better!

  • John A

    The Bridge should have dumped to FXX. Embarrasing that it could beat Its Sunny this week.

  • Igwell

    Where’s the FXX shows? According to the FXX PR, they both would have made the Top 100.

    As always, this is not a Top 100 list of 18-49. It’s a Top 100 list of 25-54 sorted by 18-49 (see the disclaimer in red text in the post).

    Sunny and The League (and other shows like Chelsea Lately) weren’t watched by enough 25-54 year-olds to make this list.

  • CBSviewer

    up from last week’s 41 adults 18-49 rating

    41 A18-49 ?

  • Amy

    Sara, do you think there will be a season 2? The ratings for the show are pretty much the same as The Americans. But The Americans was renewed much sooner. I love The Bridge. It’s a great show. I hope there is a season 2. What do you think?

  • Amy

    I meant to ask if anyone thinks there will be a season 2 of The Bridge based on the ratings? I think the ratings are pretty solid and are basically identical to what The Americans had. But since there is no renewal news yet, it’s concerning me a bit.

  • davie

    Surprised Always Sunnybwas able to get a 0.5 rating considering the amount of homes that FXX isn’t in. I thought it’d get less than a 0.4 but glad nonetheless. Great premiere

  • Ultima

    @Patrict Ausgewahlt
    Futurama premiered in March of 1999 with a 9.6 rating in the 18-49 demo. It received a .9 for the finale on Comedy Central. I think that is the biggest drop from beginning to end for a show.

    In terms of absolute drops, there’s tons of shows which have dropped 10.0+ in the demo (or in households).

    In terms of percentage drops, I’m sure there are other shows with 90% drops. Off the top of my head, I would guess that both Cops and America’s Next Top Model will manage the same. It’s natural when you have a show on the air for more than a decade (especially if it moves to cable).

    It should also be noted that Futurama dropped almost 50% of its audience by its third episode (when it moved from Sundays to Tuesdays). From that point to the finale, the drop of 80% is actually in line with many long running shows.

  • Rave Mystery

    Glad for Melissa and Joey and Hot in Cleveland.

  • Rich

    Again,10.4 million people watched absolutely nothing at all and still it was #1. Dork Dynasty sucks!

  • johnhelvete

    Amy,
    I wonder if FX is waiting to renew The Bridge because they were criticized for renewing The Americans early during its first season? If you recall, The Americans actually dropped in the ratings the week after it was renewed. At the TCAS FX said that with DVR ratings mixed in, The Bridge is not far off from Justified and The Americans in terms of viewers. And FX needs programming now that they have two channels.

  • AllOfHerTwist

    Godspeed Futurama

  • Ram510

    Melissa & Joey was awesome last night!!!! I hope the show continues beyond its 100th episode. I liked that Baby Daddy brought in the “baby momma”. She’s much more attractive than Riley.

    Always Sunny and The League were both AMAZING last night, great hour of comedy! And the ratings are solid all considering

    Great for Futurama! I hope it’s revived on some network soon (Adult Swim?)

  • TV God

    Great for Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, and Hot In Cleveland. I’m hoping that all three have 8 seasons or more!

  • Dan

    Duck Dynasty has become the Walking Dead in terms of a cable series becoming a beast in the ratings over a few seasons.

  • j

    Or, you know, any series becoming a beast in such a short time.

  • forg

    I hope the Duck Dynasty popularity will boost LMS premiere to 2.0

  • TV Viewer

    Very good series finale for Futurama, and good ratings for the season finale of Hot in Cleveland.

    I hope there’s more of Futurama to come in the future than just a cameo on a episode of The Simpsons.

  • JoeHamm

    Simpsonian crossover aside, we haven’t seen the last of the Planet Express crew. Either Netflix or another DTV release.
