    Do you have ‘Murdoch Mysteries (Ovation at 7pm)’ season premiere and ‘Devil May Care (SYFY at 12am)’ ratings, please? Thanks!


    • Ryan

      Mitch I will add to Augus’s comment and say that historically when I used to request ‘Murdoch Mysteries’ in the past that it was usually at 0.01-0.02, but I don’t recall it ever hitting a zero. So I hope although its an Ovation program, you’d be okay providing the data as long as it stays above zero.


    • Mitch Salem

      Murdoch was at 0.02/252K. To be clear, if this is one of the shows Ovation is going to air in marathons, we will not be providing weekly ratings even at that level.


  2. Martin

    Do you have the Season Premiere of Beyblade Burst at 8 and 8:30 am on Disney XD? Thanks.


  3. Amaury

    Another good week for the primetime lineup of Fox News on Saturday.

    The Greg Gutfeld Show will likely go down once it moves to weeknights in the 11 PM hour, I think in March is what I heard Greg Gutfeld say during one of the showings of The Five last week. Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream will also likely go down, since it’ll be pushed back to the 12 AM hour. Technically, the next day, though, of course, it’s the same day if going by a “television day.”


    • Bruce

      You mean another bad week for Fox News. Since the Election; Watters’ World, Justice with Judge Jeanine and The Greg Gutfeld Show are still down an average of 30% from their pre-Election audience. In fact, all timeslots for Fox News have been down since the Election.


  4. Broderick Schwinghammer

    Do you have Devil May Care at 12am on Syfy?


  5. Broderick

    Any word on ‘Devil May Care’ on Syfy at 12am?


  6. LC

    I didn’t realize college basketball matched (or exceeded) NBA ratings
