    How did Desus & Mero do in their new Monday slot?


  2. outsider

    Are there any numbers for the short form series “State of the Union” (Sundance, 10 p.m.)?

    Its ten episodes will air weekdays at 10 p.m. for two weeks.


    • Mitch Salem

      Monday: 0.01/73K
      Tuesday: 0.02/86K
      Wednesday: 0.04/157K
      So that has to be an encouraging track for Sundance.


  3. outsider

    Thank you for the answer. The way they have scheduled this program is an interesting experiment.

    The growth for the third episode was impressive. Will you be able to provide the results for the remaining days given that it has a limited number of episodes? I know it’s against the rules to request ratings for daily shows that don’t make the chart.


    • Mitch Salem

      Thursday’s episode actually did make the chart, continuing the show’s climb. We’ll cover the remaining episodes, since there’s only one more week.
