    So HOW bested (by a mile) both TK and LWS on a Saturday night, none the less, to get a, now certain, season 4 renewal. How many would have predicted that?

  • BBFan

    SHO is in many more HH’s since Homeland S1 so that comparison is rather dumb. Homeland S2 probably represented a larger % of homes then. Not to mention they are different genres. Homeland is war on terror, & MoS is mainly about a narcisist refusing to accept reality & tell his wife of his low sperm count.

  • Brandy

    DDD &WOEE not good ratings.I wonder whatll happen to both plus Client List.

  • Ray

    So is that a good start for Witches of East End?

  • Tom

    The Witches of East End has a surprisingly witty plot and a good cast. I’m looking forward to seeing how the next episode turns out.

  • Jon

    Is witches in trouble or are those good ratings for lifetime ?

  • Lanie

    Pretty sad that Keeping Up With The Kardashians are still high in ratings. America has really lowered their standards on what is entertainment these days.

  • Dan

    HELP AGAIN….SECOND WEEK NO

    LIV AND MADDIE.

    I KNOW IT DOES CLOSE TO A 3 million viewers and is on at 8pm on DISNEY, and the ratings for the 730 and even 830 show are listed

    Can anyone point me to the reason, and or know the ratings for LIV AND MADDIE.

  • ZabriskiePt

    Baseball weak?!?!
    What I see is that LDS are drawing better than last year when the Yankees were in the mix. And, as it is every October, it’s misleading comparing NFL’s TV ratings to Baseball’s. Simply because of the made-for-TV nature of Football.
    I think Baseball is now in really a good shape and very far from dead like someone says.

    @Dan:
    via thefutoncritic:
    Liv and Maddie (8:00) – Disney
    3.182 million viewers, #20; 0.572 million adults 18-49 (0.5 rating), #35

    The most probable reason: tvbtn ”only receive(s) the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our principal source. If you don’t see an original episode of a show here, it’s because it wasn’t in the top 100 [of A25-54.]”

  • BBFan

    Paraphrasing what a president of Netflix said, “people don’t pay us for a show or a movie or even a handful of shows or movies.” They pay us for our recommendations. They put their trust in us to deliver content suitable to what they like the most. The same can be said for Starz+Encore, SHO+TMC, HBO+MAX. It’s a question of who do you trust more to provide what you might like the most.

    Don’t be surprised if the operators turn on the content providers & support the Freedom of Choice TV Act. These blackouts around contract renewals seem to suggest they are growing tired of paying the increasing fees asked of any network & would prefer an a-la-carte mandate so they can better pkg their own channels vs the robber barrons (Viacom, Disney, FOX, Warner, Universal, & Sony).

  • Ike

    Homeland is doing well enough by Showtime’s standards but interestingly did better on broadcast TV in the UK in total viewers recently with about 2 million, even though there are only about 60 million people in the whole country. Of course that’s a lot of available viewers by this show’s standards, because it’s on Channel 4 which is a free broadcast channel there.
