    No spin here. ABC won the night fair and square just like Thursday! Congrats to ABC, the #4 network, for winning the first 2 nights of November Sweeps!

    Shark Tank is a monster in viewers and the demo. WOW at 20/20, very high for it in total viewers. Very interesting/intriguing episode last night of 20/20. Deserves those ratings.

    Also great for LMS. hopefully it’ll adjust up. Eh for The Neighbors. ABC should’ve never cancelled Malibu Country. It worked very well with LMS and delivered OK demo ratings and even better total viewers.


    ABC Fridays are doing fantastic. Replace the neighbors and they have a solid night.

    Have you seen The Neighbors?? It’s stinkin’ hilarious!! Seriously, check it out. You will not be disappointed. I only hope the ratings reflect it’s awesomeness soon. :)

    If you like to laugh, The Neighbors is funny every week out. Adults, particularly largely unknown Toks Olagundoye, nail it every time. The kids can act. Always clever, never raunchy. If you can’t catch it on the original airing, try it out on demand.
