    Do you have ‘800 Words (UPtv at 9PM)’ and ‘Warrior (Cinemax at 10PM)’ ratings, please? Thanks!


  2. Destiny

    Cinemax is a network on life support. I’m sure it won’t be long before its put out of its misery.


    • jd

      yeah executives have already said as much this year, that with the focus on HBO Max nothing more is being developed for Cinemax…Warrior’s just there b/c it was renewed and shot before plans were in place to wind down Cinemax


      • Destiny

        Yeah true. Kinda hoping Warrior gets moved to HBO Max but I really reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally doubt it. Theres really not a lot of shows on Broadcast or Cable with a lot of asian cast members.
