Broadcast Official Nationals Program Ratings Chart  

 

CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  ESPN’s MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL was at 3.54, up 0.09 from last week’s game.  USA’s WWE telecast was at 0.96/0.86/0.82, compared to last week’s 0.95/0.92/0.88.  On VH1, LOVE & HIP-HOP was steady at 0.89, and TI & TINY was down 0.05 to 0.59.  On MTV, TEEN MOM was at 0.51/0.29, compared to last week’s 0.48/0.34.  Bravo’s REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY lost 0.04 to 0.49.  Food Network’s HALLOWEEN BAKING CHAMPIONSHIP shed 0.05 to 0.44.  On Discovery, STREET OUTLAWS edged up 0.02 to 0.30.  Fox News’s THE INGRAHAM ANGLE led cable news at 0.28/0.49/2.9M, with MSNBC’s RACHEL MADDOW SHOW at 0.27/0.45/2.8M, while frankly there seems to be something wrong with CNN’s ratings, since the numbers we have put CUOMO PRIME TIME at the top of their line-up with 0.05/0.06/169K, which seems extremely low.  On HGTV, LOVE IT OR LIST IT ticked down to 0.27, HOUSE HUNTERS INTL ticked up to 0.20, and HOUSE HUNTERS was down 0.05 to 0.19.  History’s AMERICAN PICKERS was at 0.22/0.15, compared to last week’s 0.17.  On TLC, LONG ISLAND MEDIUM ticked up to 0.17, and LONG LOST FAMILY was down 0.03 to 0.14.  ID’s UNMASKED lost 0.03 to 0.15.  Syfy’s CHANNEL ZERO was at 0.04.  The delayed, edited, incomplete run of Paramount’s HEATHERS ended at 0.02/68K.

    Heathers finale on Paramount numbers, please.

    “frankly there seems to be something wrong with CNN’s ratings…”

    Truer words have never been written.

    “…since the numbers we have put CUOMO PRIME TIME at the top of their line-up with 0.05/0.06/169K, which seems extremely low.”

    Oh. You think it’s a Nielsen glitch. Well… nah, I’d just go with the first part instead. The part with “Frankly, there seems to be something wrong with CNN’s ratings.” Period. Cut. Print. File Chapter 11. Go off the air. The end.


  3. Amaury

    What do you think could be the problem with CNN, Mitch? Because I agree with you,they’re 100% wrong. I’ve never seen CNN go lower than 600K, give or take, in total viewers, and the 600K~ is more around the early morning to morning hours. Not sure on the demo, but definitely not that low.


  4. Chris

    Hi Mitch, by any chance do you have numbers for ‘Amar a Muerte’ on Univision?

    Thanks!
