    Do you have ‘Secret State (Ovation at 7PM)’ series finale ratings, please? Thanks!


  2. Thomas Fusil

    Do you have ratings of special report (ABC / CBS / NBC ) ?? Thank You


  3. Martin

    Do you have Beyblade Burst at 8 AM on Disney XD? Thanks


  4. 69 Road Runner

    That rating for SNL was pretty stout. I read they had to pay the audience members 150 each to make them a part of the crew in order to skirt COVID rules.


  5. Jonathan

    A near 50% drop in viewership for that Syfy cartoon. Woof.
