  • DW

    despicable me kicking ass. lol

  • Stefan

    @Nick
    WWE AM Raw please- Thanks in advance!

  • Dante

    Wutches will have to remain where it is or go up to earn a renewal. A 0.8 is okay but it can’t afford to really drop.

  • wander

    WANDER OVER YONDER, I love that show, it should be a morning show anyway, whos wants to watch children cartoons at 9pm, morning shows are better

  • BBFan

    Nick, please provide all the adultswim & Toonami 18-49 ratings for Sat night. If there are any other strong 18-49 cable premiere’s on Sat, please provide those 18-49 as well. Thanks in advance!

    @Nick

    Could you post #s for Sandwich King’s episodes for Sun 10/13 (FOOD, 11:00AM) and Wed 10/9 (FOOD, 5:30PM) and how did those fared against the other FOOD Sun AM and Wed daytime (1-5:30PM) shows?

    Also, if possible to you, would you post just this Sat 10/12 #s for Heartland Table (FOOD, 10:30AM) and its lead-in Pioneer Woman (FOOD 10:00AM)?

    As always, I thank you very much in advance!!!

  • Juan

    Huge for walking dead and happy witches of east rose, it reminds me of charmed.

  • THE OLD MAN

    8.2 held & history is made!

    WTG WD!

  • John A

    Good to see Witches of East rise. Decent show. MOS steady. That and Homeland should be renewed soon.

  • zth

    Walking Dead has 5 of the best 6 programs on cable on Sunday night. HUGE DOMINATION.

  • Shepherd

    AMC owns cable from 8-12. Practically owned cable from 6pm onwards. Amazing.

  • Daniel

    I’m glad to see Homeland beat Boardwalk Empire, Homeland is better.

  • MC

    Great for the Walking Dead. Love that show. The Witches of East End is the poor man’s Charmed. I just don’t like it.

  • Brandy

    Glad Witches stayed steady in demo at 0.8.I really liked the second episode and thought it was much better than the pilot.Witches will have to stay stable or prefferably rise to get a renwal. Not good ratings for Drop Dead Diva.

  • RatingsRaceFan

    @Nick,

    Could you provide ratings for the following shows: Power Rangers Megaforce on Nickelodeon Saturday at 1:00pm, Ultimate Spider-man on Disney XD Sunday at 11:00am, and Digimon Fusion on Nicktoons Sunday at 11:30am? Thank you for the numbers you provide each week.

  • zth

    @Shepherd:

    Actually AMC won every hour on cable on Sunday between 1 pm and midnight.

  • SueP

    I finally got into the Walking Dead. I can’t count how many times I tried to watch the first season, but found it boring and talky — a relationship, love triangle soapy drama where they killed a couple very slow, very boring zombies once in a while. I caught part of the season 2-3 marathon and must say, when they brought in the Governor and the town and made it a battle between humans (and kind of ignored the walkers because they were slow and easy to kill) it actually became interesting. Hopefully, they stay with that kind of story instead of going back to the soapy relationship drama thing.

  • paddii

    Glad Witches didn’t drop much. Hope the ratings will get better. Third episode looks quite good.

  • M

    Wow I didn’t even know ratings could go that high…. 8.2?!?!?! Good for them

    Glad Witches is up from last week… I think it’s only gonna get better like devious did

    Kardashians still acting better than Claire Danes lmao… Still can’t believe people took that seriously last week… But homeland is up so I guess she was more convincing this week… Here’s hoping to lower homeland ratings next week
