    Any numbers for Eurovision Song Contest at Logo? And by the way, how’s Sesame Street doing at HBO? I never see it in Saturday’s Top 150.


  3. Joseph

    Ratings for 11:30 AM My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic on Discovery Family?

    Do you have Sonic Boom at 6 pm on Boomerang?


  5. Destiny

    Burn off show Ransom, treated like a burn off show by CBS was finally canceled by CBS. Shocked!
