    WWE was the number one scripted show on last night.


  2. ChrisM

    With so much on the line (money?), I don’t get ABC’s reasoning to air Idol against the Voice. To be realistic as to how well, or bad, it can really do, they should put it on other, less competitive nights. Wednesdays and Thursdays? Move Goldbergs, Roseanne, Modern Family, American Housewife, and Grey’s (back) to Sunday? The rest would depend on what they keep. Shake things up.


  3. Fred

    The Terror is magnificent. But is this a good rating ?
    People have no taste at all


    • Destiny

      The numbers, although fine, are really not important. It was always intended to be a one season show, there’s no more story left to tell.


      • Lovecraft

        Only half true. The Story of the ship AMS Terror will be told after 10 episodes but AMC’s The Terror is supposed to become a franchise. A horror anthology with season long arcs like American Horror Story, American Crime Story, etc.

        But the live+SD ratings also only tell a little part of the story since AMC released all 10 episodes on their streaming service. Same is true for Amazon outside of the USA.


    • Mike

      Not judging the show one way or the other, but I’m sure there are things you like that others think lacks taste so…


  4. Destiny

    Hey Mitch, what do you think about AMC moving Preacher back to Sundays for Season 3? Clearly Mondays didn’t work as expected for the show.


    • Mitch Salem

      Sundays are incredibly crowded, but AMC has had trouble getting traction on Mondays, so it’s worth a try.


  5. MM

    Rachel Maddow officially Queen of Cable News! Dethrones FOX News! No.1 Cable News Program! Congrats!


  6. KevinY

    Good Girls looking safe for renewal!


  7. Amaury

    I don’t watch news, but it must have been a big news night. Not unusual numbers for The Rachel Maddow Show, Hannity, and Tucker Carlson Tonight, but they all had a pretty big boost from the airing before, and even CNN with Anderson Cooper 360, etc. was up.
