  • brian

    Nick — Final ratings for strike back?

  • Robbee 66

    WOW!!! Is that bad for Haven???

  • Mathew

    Seriously that was the best legend of Korra episode ever! Pretty good episodes of jessie and ant farm Also. I hope they both get 4th and final seasons

  • Tom

    Haven is getting the same ratings as last year. I except SyFy to renew it for a final season.

  • Danny

    @Matthew
    Jessie might have a chance of getting a 5th season
    I really want Disney to attempt going beyond 4 seasons
    Also Ant farms Third season will be it’s last

  • DenverDean

    Considering the game was a blowout, those numbers aren’t bad.

  • Samuel

    Modern Family is working out pretty well for USA. I originally though it was a bad idea.

  • Mon

    So happy Modern Family is doing well on USA. Just avoid Thursday because of CBS comedies. I’m sure the know-it-alls are eating crow right now for calling MF a bust just after its first (!) night in syndication. Didn’t even wait a week.

  • Lyla

    Ant Farm did Bad and Jessie did pretty good!
    LOK is failing that episode was good ;(
    Wander over yonder isn’t doing so well
    On Disney channel so far!
    Also I’m wondering How the shake it up
    Series finale will fare?

  • mesjarch

    Lyla:

    How is LOK not suppose to fall in viewers when Nick changed the hour again?! It’s ridiculous how many times they change it this season. Since they started changes the viewers have fallen because viewers don’t know when the show is airing.

  • harry

    Go haven go! really nice show

  • Happy Endings Fan

    Hmmm wasn’t also Continuum scoring 0.4 in 10pm???

  • Lyla

    Exactly what I’m. Saying from 7pm to 8:30 now to 8:PM
    Nickelodeon is destroying the views of this show
    It would dare better on Satardays

  • Angelo

    Haven is doing good! It has always been consistent

  • Tom

    Continuum average about a .03 and about 1.2 million.

  • trevor

    Lyla – Ant Farm led off the night with over 2.6 million viewers and Jessie at 8:30 did over 2.8 – how is it that Ant Farm did “bad” and Jessie did “pretty good”????? Those numbers seem expected. Dont ever forget the first season when Jessie led off the night and Ant Farm followed – Ant Farm ALWAYS built off of Jessie.

  • Baseball4Ever

    I LOVE BASEBALL….

  • THE OLD MAN

    Truly traumatic game–I LOVE BASEBALL 2!

  • Renaado

    Got that right @Baseball4Ever!! Baseball Is AWESOME !!

  • Chris

    I just got into haven thanks to netflix. This season has been the best so far. Im hoping itll get renewed, does anyone know how these numbers compare with previous seasons and other shows on syfy?
