    Can I have ‘Eight Days that Made Rome’ (Smithsonian, 8pm)? Thanks!


  2. Louis

    Do you have America Says on GSN? Thanks!


  3. Mark

    What were the DVR ratings for the CFP National Championship, if available? Thanks.


    • Ryan

      Sports programs of any kind generally see negligible rises in DVR, so they won’t be very much different at all from the L+SD numbers.
