    Do you have ‘Trackers (Cinemax at 10PM)’ and ‘McCallum (Ovation at 12PM and 2PM)’ ratings, please? Thanks!


    • Mitch Salem

      In the text, but we will not be responding to any more requests for either of those shows until their finales.


  2. Destiny

    Good night for Fox News with Hannity & Carlson. The network won across the board in all the key demos and overall viewers.

    CNN shouldn’t need crisis events to top charts to compete with Fox News. They need to be more consistent with their numbers.


    • Destiny

      I also don’t care much about cable news but there’s literally nothing else on cable or broadcast to talk about on Fridays lol.


  3. Ryan

    Mitch, can you clarify the viewership for Trackers ? was it 0.38K or 38K ? I assume the latter because I didn’t think nielsen tracked to the hundreds


  4. Ryan

    Also Mitch, I don’t really know what your counting as premiere and finale, but according to The Futon Critic, Ovation is airing both seasons ‘McCallum’ in a row and each are 4 episodes. So this upcoming friday will be episodes 3 and 4 which are technically the season 1 finale. The week after will be episodes 1 and 2 of season 2 – what are the rules for requests in this situation ?


    • mark

      Just curious, no malice intended. Why do you want the numbers? The show[s] are lower rated than the CW shows. I would just be happy the shows aired and hope for a renewal.

      I doubt any renewal will be because the numbers justified it. I would be bummed seeing those numbers. That’s just me.

      Good luck


    • Mitch Salem

      We will not respond to any future requests for ratings on this show until its final airing on Ovation.
