    Heathers ratings at 10pm on Paramount Network?


  2. Amaury

    * Lip Sync Battle Shorties: Good
    * Double Dare: Bad
    * Raven’s Home: Bad
    * Coop & Cami Ask the World: Bad


  3. Russell

    Did Syfy’s Dream Door air on Friday night? If so, do you have the ratings for that show?


    • Greg K.

      It’s listed as Channel Zero, as that’s the name of the series (Dream Door is the subtitle). It’s at #92, with 0.10/322K


    • sav001

      It’s in the table as Channel Zero. It got 322k and a 0.1 in the demo. The entire season is already available on the Syfy app.


  4. Tenter

    What are the ratings for Welcome to the Wayne at 7PM and 7:30PM? It was a season finale


    • ChrisM

      You forgot to mention the network being Nicktoons. Not sure they will tell you as it’s a daily show not on the chart and Mitch has stated they won’t normally respond to these requests, but maybe he’ll make an exception.

      It’s probably a series finale since Nickelodeon waited a year to finish it and dumped it on a network not many people probably get. We have to get the more expensive digital preferred package to do so and it’s still in standard definition, not high definition.

      On the plus side, Comcast is making Bureau of Magical Things available through On Demand in HD, but not the Wayne.


      • Tenter

        Welcome to the Wayne was NOT a series finale, season 2 was already been renewed


        • ChrisM

          Thanks, but it still does not excuse their treatment of the show.


          • ChrisM

            By the way, when did they renew it? Animation requires a bit of a lead time to get shows done by the scheduled air date. Could the renewal be due to its performance on Nickelodeon itself?


          • Tenter

            Thanks Mitch for Welcome to the Wayne ratings 🙂 Sad that numbers aren’t doing well for Nicktoons.

            And Chris, i don’t remember exactly where I got source from, but I know season 2 has been renewed by social media tweet or any sites. Nickelodeon doesn’t give out press release for season 2 renewal..
            Maybe nickalive blogspot knows.. or go to toonzone Welcome to the Wayne discussion..


    • Mitch Salem

      Since someone else supplied the network:

      0.02/83K
      0.01/57K


  5. KevinY

    Since the epic 7 hour, 20 minute baseball game went passed 3 am ET I was wondering if it would break Nielsen! I was initially surprised it got only 13.2 mil viewers but considering they take the average of the entire thing those 2 am-3:30 am ET numbers probably really pulled it down. Around the 12th inning I imagine it was around 20 mil viewers.
