    Battlebots did well on a very slow Friday for cable. That’s also a season high audience rating for Killjoys despite the 18-49 being awful. With just two episodes left of the season I wonder if we’ll see Killjoys rate above a 0.10?


  2. Ryan

    Do you have the ‘Stand Up for Cancer’ ratings for Showtime, Smithsonian, and Starz? Aired at 8pm. Thanks!


  3. Amaury

    So TKO had a 0.4 rating, but only 1.63 million viewers, while a Blue Bloods REPEAT had a 0.3 rating and 3.15 million viewers. Not shows I watch, but I find that hilarious.


  4. Owen

    Ratings for Random Acts of Flyness on HBO?
    Ratings for Outcast on Cinemax?


  5. Was there not a new episode of Outcast on Friday? Has Cinemax kicked that to a later hour to burn off its episodes?


  6. Owen

    Do you have ratings for Random Acts of Flyness on HBO?
