    Are those numbers for ABC right, because both shows did not adjust down in the demo despite those preemptions?

    #BoycottRAW worked. WWE’s numbers continue to plummet

    “My Brilliant Friend” rating?


  5. Odd

    Do you have ratings for Bunnicula on Boomerang (4am)?


  6. Fan of all things Christmas

    Hallmark – when are you going to STOP shoving the Pete’s down our throats? A rich, quasi celebrity family trying to throw an over-the top party to impress their friends sounds like a really good idea for a TV special doesn’t it? (Eyeroll) No, I didn’t watch it but despite Hallmark’s continuous advertising of the horrible show, it lost almost 20% of its carefully placed lead-in – Amy Grant’s Christmas show. And in a couple of weeks we get this travesty thrown at us every week while Hallmark tries yet again to get this Oprah channel reject off the ground. ENOUGH ALREADY!!


  7. Allison

    Is it possible to get the source data? Can you isolate shows just during a certain time slot?
