    SVU repeats so well. Are those normal ratings for it? I never noticed it before.

  • cimmer

    Oh White Collar. I blame the writers. I wasn’t interested in Neal’s dad last season and this season we seem to be deconstructing Neal which is also not a lot of fun. As much as a love Matt Boomer, it’s not the Neal Caffrey show and I’d like to get back to that great ensemble cast that they put together. They seem to be making the same mistake that the Burn Notice writers did when they split the gang up. sigh.

  • TV Addict

    Lol I forgot Anger Management still existed.

  • Walter Palmer

    SVU repeats around 0.7 in demo. Very reliable. Unfortunately for USA, their original programming is doing worse than their syndicated.

  • romo

    Why does it say nba basketball was 2nd ? no it wasnt.

  • Thomas

    Any info on the Macklemore E! Special ratings from 10 p.m.?

  • chris

    Either bring back Vince Russo as head writer or cancel TNA Impact.

  • Will

    Covert Affairs is having their best season, and only diehards fans are tuning in. The writing has improved 100 fold… it’s too bad they cannot get more visibility.

  • jose

    anger management is dead like 2hmen hahahahaha

  • marcos

    can’t believe Covert affairs it’s sinking. it’s the best season so far. at least it was renewed

  • Morgan Wick

    You overlooked college football when ranking the originals and writing the headline.

  • brutony!

    Yeah, Cimmer, I was bummed by last nights ep, seemed to be like a stand alone one. First Diane gets mysteriously pregnant and shes off, now Mozzie is going to split, and Ellie is pretty much a cameo performer. Lets get the gang back together, holmes! And can they give Neal a girlfriend again, or did he put the kibosh on that stuff from now on?

    @Thomas
    Macklemore’s Big Surprise (10:00) – E!
    0.424 million viewers, #44; 0.319 million adults 18-49 (0.25 rating), #39

    It was definitely a night of sports.

  • Nurse

    Scrubbing In (10:00) – MTV
    0.521 million viewers, #43; 0.382 million adults 18-49 (0.30 rating), #36

  • brandojames

    NBA wasn’t second. College Football Prime Time on ESPN was second.

  • Paul

    Are they not ranking Fox Sports One? I was wondering how the Thursday night Baylor-Oklahoma game did.

  • Lance

    surprised to see the minnesota/washington game outdid the oregon/stanford game… i didnt think an nfl game with two poor teams would be better rated than a top 5 showdown in college.. and figured more people have access to ESPN than the NFL network

  • lise amstrong

    rha first look should be watched more

  • kb

    Lance, it’s the nfl. College football can’t compete with it. It’s not even close

  • Jenn

    What about Big Bad Wood on Nat Geo
