    I’m curious. Any time this happens, is it a Nielsen delay, or do you guys just have something else going on that you can’t post the pretty charts right away?


  2. Augus

    ‘Warrior’ (Cinemax) ratings, please?


  3. Tenter

    Do you have the ratings for Welcome to the Wayne airing 6pm and 6:30pm on Nicktoons? 6pm is the new season premiere


    • Mitch Salem

      We have no Friday cable ratings below the Top 150.


      • Shan

        And still no broadcast finals at least we have programminginsider to provide them. What’s Nielsen’s excuse for the friday delay this time? I’d really love to see the Nielsen raw sample results and see how out of wack their calculations are.


  4. Amaury

    Still nothing, huh? Nielsen is silly.


  5. Andrea

    Still no table with pretty colors? *sigh*
