    Do you have the season premiere of Beyblade Burst at 8:30 am on Disney XD?


  2. That’s kind of an ugly drop for The Gifted. Perhaps it will rebound with its Fall finale next week.


  3. Shan

    The way The Good Doctor keeps declining doesn’t give it much hope of pulling any numbers like the premiere did and may even fall over during it’s winter premiere.


  4. James

    Do you have “Ill Behaviour” at 10:30 p.m. on Showtime?


  5. Dylan

    Alabama special election numbers I’m betting push Rachel Maddow into 5mil with a demo win.
