    The postgun i mean postgame beat the game….freaky.

  • Bram

    Hey look Pete Holmes does well on Thursdays!

  • Pat

    Yikes for Covert Affairs!! And not too hot for White Collar either!

  • Lucas

    Whats POST GUN?

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Sara Bibel

    Post-Gun was how NFL Netwoork classified the two minute post-game wrap up. It wasn’t a real program, so I didn’t list it as the highest rated show of the night.

  • Thad

    White Collar stable in very difficult time slot, good news! Covert awful.

  • Ray

    Great episode of Covert Affairs last night. At least up to a 0.5 from a 0.4 last week. Hate to see the Michelle Ryan story arc end, if she’s really dead?

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    The CBS special repeat at 8:30 of the Big Bang Theory got a 2.1 rating. The TBC repeat at the same time got a .9, so a 3.0 rating across two networks

    People where into the ’60s last night. The 1966 Halloween special (Charlie Brown) got a 2.2 and for no real reason a repeat of an almost 50 year old episode of the Andy Griffith show made the list

  • One

    Hey, anyone have any info on The Returned?

  • One

    Seriously? That’s ***REDACTED***. Total ***REDACTED***.

  • Percy

    Where’s Hawaii Five-0 Sara?

  • DenverDean

    The high rating for the POSTGUN reflects the fact that the game’s numbers surged as the game was going into last minutes of the 4Q and then into OT.

  • chrisjozo

    I still don’t understand why Covert Affairs gets renewed for a full season but Psych only gets 10 episodes. USA should remember that light and quirky is what made it successful not dark and angsty.

  • kb

    The postgun means nothing it is less than 5 minutes. It just means the game peaked in overtime but the overall average for the game is a little less.

  • James

    Decent numbers for White Collar. Renewal please?

  • mike

    Hi. Anything on Meltdown on National Geographic ?

  • Percy

    Does anyone know what Hawaii Five-0s ratings are for TNT?

  • tj

    White Collar was good last night. Provided a shocker as well.

  • Ram510

    What happens to The Daily Show?

  • Kaaboom

    Covert really deserves better ratings, it’s a great show. let’s hope they bring it back to it’s tuesday slot and it climbs in season 5.
