    Panic 911 had pretty good ratings for its second season. I sense another batch of episodes being produced.

    Tamar & Vince is down, pretty much a repeat of its ratings from Season 1. Hopefully it can actually make the list this whole season instead of only 2 episodes.

  • mikey0

    Nice Finish for Burn notice leaves the opening for a USA Movie in the future or a Sam and Jessie spin off.

  • Tomcatt630

    How long before people get tired of ‘freinds’ and ‘Raymond’ marathons.

  • Mon

    I was expecting at least a 1.5 for Burn Notice series finale but it still did well.

  • Cyrax86

    Farewell, Burn Notice! The finale had some nice stuff but the last 3 seasons as a whole were crap compared to the awesome first 4.

  • Nothing But Cancellation

    I expected better ratings for BN series finale.

    Five-0, the biggest waste of money on TNT history, congrats to CBS to make TNT pay 2.5 million for episode of this fail.

  • Shepherd

    Wow! A .6 for the Graceland finale is awesome! Best renewal decision of the summer. It should easily pull a .3-.4 for next year’s premier.

  • Ellen in NYC

    I’m going to miss Burn Notice.

  • cimmer

    Wow Graceland, not too good IMHO considering the lead in it had. I wonder what it will be paired up with when it comes back and how those numbers will look?

  • Joey

    “Nothing But Cancellation” – you must work for a rival network or have NO IDEA how this works. 1.6 million people in the dead of summer for Five-0 is pretty damn good. Get educated. Come back. THEN post.

  • rob60990

    lol Joey. Summer is over. It’s getting darker earlier and the weather is getting cooler. Plus Castle, Bones, & Supernatural do better during the day. Hawaii 5-0 is a big loser in syndication especially considering how much TnT overpaid for this mess.

  • rob60990

    In fact, it’s probably going to get worse for Hawaii 5-0 in the next couple of weeks when broadcast shows return. I can already see it almost never making the list.

  • Randy

    Joey, I don’t know much about these cable ratings but when around 31 shows beat you week after week “in the dead of summer” that are in direct competition with you at your time slot (9 PM – 11 PM),and 14 of those shows are in the top 25, you think that is a good thing?

    One H50 episode barely makes it, only beating out a news program, and the other doesn’t make it at all, and you call that a win?

    Seems like maybe your education is off. or maybe YOU are a Hawaii 5-0 fanatic.

  • Randy

    Good point, Rob60990. When the prime time season begins for the broadcast shows, H50 will disappear off the face of these ratings.Jump the gun much, TNT, buying the show in its first season?

  • Mon

    1.6 million viewers for H50 is good but it seems TNT is not happy because H50 is moving from 9-11pm to 10pm-12am next Thursday. Maybe it’s not performing well enough on their target demos. How long after that that H50 disappears completely from the schedule and TNT resumes with Castle, CSI: NY and The Mentalist.

  • Ram510

    Nice finish for Burn Notice but I was hoping it would end with a 1.5-1.8. This season has been a let down especially after season 6 which was spectacular and really got back on track

    Graceland is terrible, period. It’s sad that USA renewed this show because unless they revamp this show, te rating will only get worse in season 2 and basically be a waste of time

  • Zelien

    Very unimpressive for Graceland. With the best lead-in it’s ever likely to get on USA, the finale pulls a series low in 18-49 at 0.6 and barely cracks 2 million total viewers.

    How does a new show that’s just been renewed and is allegedly building momentum actually lose viewers for its season finale? USA would be wise to keep its season two expectations low for this show. And Jeff Eastin may want to reconsider just how he splits his time between this and White Collar.

  • Dan S

    I can’t say I’m a big fan of Graceland. I’m really surprised it got a 2nd season renewal with such weak ratings. My guess it’ll likely be paired next year with White Collar that’s now moving to Thursdays next month. Word has it Sam & Jesse will get a spinoff from Burn Notice.

  • Andies

    Pretty much anything that is paired with the First 48 does all right.. I can see another season of Panic 911

  • BFun

    Panic 911 is awesome ! It has al the suspense and scare of a horror flick!
    hope it is renewed for 3rd time!
