    ‘Strike Back’ ratings, please?


  2. Tenter

    Mitch, why aren’t you responding my posts? I said what was the TeenNick ratings for Nick Cannon Presents: Fresh Artist that aired at 11AM on Sat Jan 26?

    http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/showbuzzdailys-top-150-saturday-cable-originals-network-finals-1-26-2019.html


    • ChrisM

      Was it a repeat? From what I could find out, the show appears not to have aired a new episode since January 19. It’s also appears to be a 15 minute show and not really a traditional length show at all? TeenNick is primarily known for airing reruns of Nickelodeon shows. Even if a new episode and/or a new original series, I am not sure their ratings are provided by Nielsen to begin with as TeenNick may not participate in that because of it being the rerun network that it is. Our cable company only has it as a standard definition channel, whether you get high definition or not, so it’s sort of a minor sub-channel.

      It’s probably among the reasons why Mitch does not answer this, but he could better tell you for sure himself even if he has no information on it, or you could assume he doesn’t if he doesn’t answer.

        I’m very sure on Jan 26 at 11AM was a new episode, but 11:15AM is a repeat.
        Jan 19 was a new episode also but in 15 min, followed by repeat at 11:15AM, and only Mitch answered Jan 19 for my request of ratings, but he did not respond Jan 26.


        • ChrisM

          I went to Futon Critic to find information and, using the Guide page, they had no listing for the show. How did you find it?

          I was not sure if TeenNick ratings were provided at all, but if Mitch provided a ratings response to you, I guess that clears that up. I can’t speak for him as to why no second response, but he has his “rules” for requests he’ll answer or not – see below for one.

          Whatever ratings he gave for the 19th, I would consider to be what the show would get on a regular basis, more or less. Is it really that important?


          • Tenter

            But I clicked on the link above, underneath TeenNick special listings is “Fresh Artist” and it still has lists these episodes Jan 19, Jan 26 each at 11AM, but this month changed to new timeslot to every Sunday night at 9:30PM. I’m not sure why you’re not seeing it.. Either that or Mitch might be confused thinking it’s a rerun.. while in reality it’s not a rerun

            It’s important for me to post on rating thread


          • Tenter

            Mitch responded the Feb 10 Fresh Artist ratings though. Still no word for Jan 26 ratings…


          • ChrisM

            Sorry, I can’t find the show. Your link above takes you to a page with no heading or title noted. The show is not listed in the SHOWATCH section under “Nick Cannon” or “Fresh Artist”. How did you find “teennick-special”? Did you use the search at top? Or Google? It’s the only way I see that it comes up.


          • TVShowsFan

            The link works fo me.


  3. Fan

    Are you sure ratings on Persuit channel isn’t available?

    Apparently some people claimed that Impact Wrestling scored 12000 viewers during it’s first week on that channel.


    • Mitch Salem

      We do not get any Pursuit ratings, nor do we expect to get them in the future. Sorry, but we’re going to stop responding to requests for these. If we ever do get their ratings–and again, we have absolutely no expectation that this will ever happen–we’ll provide them.


    • Tim

      LOL try 1200 people watched. The channel is in 45 million households. No way “People are reporting 12,000 viewers” since there is no way of measuring it. Good job. I’m sure you will ask about the show next week too


  4. Tenter

    ChrisM where do you live? I live in current USA eastern states: indiana. I can access and even when I click the link, it’s not giving me problem. I don’t know how it’s getting you problem…

    For some of you people, who don’t have the problem and can access thefutoncritic for Fresh Artist, for teennick special listings, can someone else please back me up on this?
